Stay safe with NYC Condom Finder iPhone app

NYC Condom Finder by NYC Health

A new twist to Safe Sex!

NYC Condom Finder by NYC Health is a free app for the iPhone that will help you locate free condoms throughout the New York metropolitan area. Now it's easier than ever to find a free condom to protect yourself from sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, and unwanted pregnancy. The NYC Health Department wants you to be safe if you live or visit New York City. And it's doing its part by distributing free condoms throughout the area.

With more than 3,000 condom-distribution locations, the iPhone makes it easy to find one when you need it the most. "This is the latest tool to ensure New Yorkers have access to free condoms wherever they are in the city," said Dr. Thomas Farley, New York City health commissioner. This is part of an initiative that started in 2007. It helps to reach a core part of the young population. The NYC Condom Facebook page also has information about how to download the application.

The app allows users to determine their location through either the built-in GPS in their iPhones or by manually entering an address. You can simply select the borough you want, and a map will pop up with pushpin locations throughout that area. Or if you want to look at all the locations by name, you can list them that way. It's a clean app, very neatly organized, and easy to use. No frills or extras, but it does give you a complete list of dos and don'ts for condom usage. Additional information about the NYC Condom Program is available.

The only downside of the app is that once you select a location, all that is given is the address and hours of operation. It would be nice if there was a link to that location's website, especially if additional services are offered.
