Finding free condoms in New York City will be easier than ever.

The City Health Department launched the NYC Condom Finder, a free smartphone application designed to locate the five nearest New York City venues that distribute free NYC Condoms.

The application allows users to determine their location through either global positioning system (GPS) technology on their smartphone or by manually entering an address.

The application also provides specific directions to each venue (the user can choose from walking, driving or public transportation directions), the hours of operation for each location, the types of safer sex products available and helpful tips on condom usage.

There are nearly almost 1,000 condom distribution locations throughout the five boroughs accessible through the mobile app.

To download it, New Yorkers with Android or Apple mobile phones should search for 'NYC Condom' in the Android Market or the iPhone App Store on their respective devices.

The NYC Condom Facebook page will also have information about how to download the application.

New Yorkers can call 311 or visit (keyword: condoms) to find more than 3,000 partner venues that offer free NYC Condoms.
