Squared Away Chicago, a Web-based mobile application created by the Metropolitan Tenants Organization, helps facilitate communication between landlords and tenants, while giving them both a paper trail in case a dispute escalates. Through the app, which was funded with a grant from the MacArthur Foundation, tenants can photograph a problem and send it with a note to the landlord; landlords can use the app to track communications and progress of repairs.
