The City of San Francisco recently opened DataSF.org, a website to help improve government transparency, and increase citizen access to city data. One project that has spawned from this initiative is an app showcase which collects the many locally focused applications being created from this new open data.

Some of the apps include:

Crimespotting – San Francisco Crimespotting is an interactive map of crimes in San Francisco and a tool for understanding crime in cities.

EveryBlock – EveryBlock publishes a news feed for every city block in San Francisco.  Enter your street address, neighborhood or ZIP code, and the site shows you recent nearby mainstream/blog news coverage, police calls, building permits, restaurant inspections and much more — updated throughout the day, every day.
