There is an app for everything – even if you need a condom. This past Monday, the New York City Health Department launched a mobile application available on both the iPhone and Android that will help interested users find the nearest location in the area giving out free condoms. The app uses GPS technology, giving directions to the nearest five places in the city with free condoms. Over last five years, the city has been giving out free condoms at a rate of 3 million per month. Dr. Monica Sweeney, the city’s assistant health commissioner explains:

“We want New York City to be the safest city in the world to have sex. A lot of people come here for that, so we want them to practice safer sex.”
