CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Want to avoid those massive city potholes? Well, there's an app for that.

Chicago native, Elliott Ramos, created an app that shows where each pothole in the city is located. Ramos says he decided to make the app because he got sick of hearing his friends complain about them.

It features an animated map of pothole reports from November until now.

"What did was take the pothole data set, which is what every news organization has done so far, and I took out the duplicate files, which the city was nice enough to put that in there, and I just sorted it out by date and put it on a map," Ramos told FOX 32 in an interview.

Ramos says the app isn't just to show people where the potholes are but to show how the number of reports can change over time.
