Bedbugs in Your Pocket

If you're worried about bed bugs and have an iPhone, there's an app for you: Bed Bug Alert. (If you're not worried about bedbugs, I want to have whatever you're drinking.)  If you're on the go and want to keep apprised of where bedbug outbreaks have been report, pick up this $1.99 app.

Bed Bug Alert will also let you report bedbugs infestations wherever you spot them be it a hotel, movie theater, office or anywhere.

Bed Bug Alert has one flaw: In addition to displaying push pins on the map for where there are nearby infestations, the app also displays a push pin for your current location to anchor your location. That can cause, in the technical vernacular of psychology, a panic attack.

All Life Is Local's Tuesday tech column by Bill Adler is any day. Rather than be locked into one day a week, we wanted the flexibility to bring you relevant technology news any day of the week.
