Contraception? There's an app for that

Now the City of Brotherly Love is even more, er, loving. iCondom and the Philadelphia Department of Public Health announced the release of iCondom Philly!, an iPhone application that allows users to find free condom dispensers around the city. With an alarming rate of sexually transmitted disease among adolescents, the app is designed to allow crowd sourcing to rate the locations and availability of condoms. 
 
Similar to your iPhone locating the nearest Thai restaurant in a city, the iCondom site will point out the nearest condom distribution locations using geo-location and Google Maps to help get you there when your mind is on other things.
 
The model has proven highly successful already and users are adding condom locations in Canada, Brazil and throughout Europe and the US.
