Ratings and Reviews
Wondering what is going on with this app. The distances of some incidents are all screwed up lately. For example, there is an incident happening now that is about 2 miles from me. It’s saying it’s 120 miles. Several are like that when I go to check. In maps, my location is correct. What is going on? It’s frustrating.
It's O.K.... Has potential.
The app is a pleasing idea but first, the crashes need to be fixed. Second, the pages need to be more appealing and easier to use (make it fast, informative, and smoother handling when moving on the map) thirdly, they need to remove the annoying ad, it is ridiculous that every time I accidentally click on it.
Lastly, but not least, the app icon is very unattractive. It's pretty ugly looking. The makers should make it a slightly darker blue and a golden yellow in stead of bright yellow as the county color/letter color. Other than that, it's a decent app. Take my advice and it'd be a 5 star app.

Have you updated to the latest version (3.3)? It addresses many of the issues that mention. If you have, or when you do, let us know what you think of the new version. You could update your review or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
As someone who works for MCDPS I think this app is great! I know (without being a dispatcher) what's going on in the county. I wish it had major police incidents but I understand there are legal issues with that. But more for traffic routing purposes it would be nice to know about accidents and other similar emergencies. Plus, you could link it to show APBs, amber alerts, etc, it would be good too. Police need all the eyes they can get on the road! Great concept though!
