MEXICO CITY (AP) — What do the mayors of gigantic cities do when they get together? According to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, "Compare apps."

Garcetti says that he and his Mexico City counterpart, Miguel Angel Mancera, spent their first few minutes together during a meeting this week comparing what mayoral duties they can perform using apps on their smartphones.

Mancera can tell air quality and locate road blockades and street protests in real time. Garcetti can photograph potholes and find an open parking space.

Who won the app war?

Garcetti calls it a draw. "He can't tell you where there are parking spaces, and I can't do air quality," Garcetti says.
