Ratings and Reviews
Good idea, but room for improvement.
I am a retired NSW Police Detective. I am not so sure of the very high rating of some of the previous reviews. The app is simplistic and a guide to elicit memory recall which is good.
I also like the idea of being on a phone so the information is given contemporaneously. However simple things like Contact Details is left very open (not name, address, email) if a witness only provides a phone number and that is recorded incorrectly a valuable witness may be lost. Also whilst on contact details, the word details is hidden on my iPhone 7. Is that because I use a larger font on my phone? I have glasses. I would have thought that testing of the app on a broad cross section of the community would have highlighted that. I tried to test the app with a fictitious event and found I couldn’t delete it. This may or may not have been purposely built in to prevent deletion of events accidentally. If that’s the case provision of a training area to practice entering events may be useful. I think links to appropriate contacts for reporting events such as Crime Stoppers or the Police Assistance Line would also have been useful. I tried to print my test event and couldn’t unless I emailed it to myself.
A great tool for eyewitnesses!
Given that most of us will unfortunately witness, or be a victim of crime or abuse, this app is a great way to record your account quickly before your memory begins to fade.
The app allows you to quickly and conveniently store information about an incident using text, audio and images. It is easy to use. :)
