How about adapting the Wetherspoons app? I know other pubs are available, but Spoons is often the largest and busiest in a town, so it might be better than nothing.

The app seems to have had some sort of positive effect on the Isle of Wight. So either the app itself actually worked or people felt like they were being watched and so didn't go across town to bang someone else's wife or drive to castles to check their eyesight or whatever it is that they normally do.

France's app doesn't seem to have been very useful so far.

Apparently our Italian app gave its first alert, somewhere in Abruzzo.
