Minor bug fixes
I have never written a review before, I felt compelled with this app because it is dangerous and BS'ing people.
I don't know if many of the folks using this app happily are not paying attention to the data or are just simply out of touch with what's going on in their environment they wouldn't know the difference. So much of the data, reports etc on this app are canned verbiage. The messages that "people" leave are canned, bot generated crap. The crime reports are canned and they often contain the wrong police department information/name and use vague descriptions purposefully. This gives people a false sense of what's going on around them wether for good or bad
I have messaged their support on this but a week later no response which was expected. All this site/app is doing is taking data from dozens of other 3rd party reporting applications (seen if you read their legal terms) so their defense will be that they are not the ones writing the reports etc just "delivering" it to you. This is still irresponsible and ultimately exists to get you to sign up so they can make money on ads and the user base
Delete app and create new account
I have experienced repeated instances where I cannot login to the online account for this app. I have had an account set up for several years with the same address. Seems that every once in a while I can't login. This time I receive a message that says my address is not valid, enter a new one. But I can't because it won't allow me to login. So I contacted support and received this message back.
"The app is working correctly. It appears there was a problem when you set up your account (either an address was never entered or there was an error with the address that was entered), unfortunately we are not able to access this account."
Well my address was correct for several years. Now support can just say it is not correct and to open a new account. Ok, maybe that is the only answer. But the app is not working correctly if this is the only fix for a address that was correct for several years. Poor customer service. But, it's a free app.
This app keeps sending alerts to my email, 10 times a day with activity happening 0.0 miles from what they say is my home address. However the alerts are for a completely different state!! I've tried updating my settings and it keeps happening. Currently have not gotten any alerts for my area at all, even though I know there have been accidents nearby. Research other apps.
