Get City news and events directly on your smartphone with the free Simplicity app

Updated July 11, 2022

To make it easier for our residents to get timely and important city news and event information, the City has joined Simplicity - a free government-oriented smartphone app.

The Simplicity app does not require registration and does not collect any personal data from users. After installing the Simplicity app, users just need to choose their city, and then select topics of interest to receive personalized notifications.

“The community let us know they wanted an app to get verified and timely information from a trusted source,” said Krista Bernasconi, Mayor of the City of Roseville. “With Simplicity, information can be customized and easily accessed, simply with touch on our smartphones.”

Using the mobile app and its push notifications, residents can always stay informed with real-time updates about things they are interested in - even without opening the app. Unlike users of Facebook and Nextdoor, Simplicity users receive every post by the City. Never miss important, verified city updates.

Roseville joined Simplicity in conjunction with Placer County. As other local government agencies also join, users will have official local community updates easily accessible in one place.

The Simplicity app is free and available for iOS and Android at
