Need A Government Service? Just Use The App

Just as all of your social life is slowly narrowing down to just Wechat, now the Shanghai government is funneling almost the entirety of any administrative activity you could possibly need to do into one app: Shiminyun, or the “People’s Cloud”. Strict controls have been enacted to protect people’s data, and limit third-party access to data. The app is constantly being updated, and will soon be able to be personalized.
