Company Details

Update

Blockboard is a mobile bulletin board that uses your iPhone (and soon, your Android phone) to connect you with your neighbors. If it’s about your neighborhood, you can find it or post it on Blockboard. For example, you can:

  • Ask a question of your neighbors (we’ll notify you when someone answers)

  • See and post interesting photos from around the neighborhood

  • Read the latest neighborhood news as reported both by the best local blogs and by your own neighbors

  • Report graffiti, litter, or other problems to the city (we’ll automatically submit it the city and follow-up on the status)

Blockboard was formerly known as BlockChalk and has recently launched in over 30 neighborhoods across San Francisco.
