What's New in Version 5.1.0
1. Want alerts even during quiet hours? We heard you.
Many of our app users have asked for an easy way to disable quiet hours so they can be alerted any time. Now there is an easy on/off toggle switch in the ping4alerts! “Settings”.
2. Now you can create watched location by address.
When adding a “Watched Location”, there is now a “Search by Address” field at the top of the screen. Simply enter the address and a pin will be placed on the map at this location. Tap “Save”, and you're done.
3. Show your friends how safe your neighborhood is!
We’ve added the ability to share the sex offender map to your Facebook and Twitter connections. We even assign a grade for you! (Just don't make your friends feel bad if their score isn’t up to par.) We’re adding more states every week – stay tuned.
4. We’ve heard your feedback!
The alert list has an improved interface, and shows more information. We're constantly trying to make our app look better and be more intuitive to use...so keep the comments coming.
If it works v.2
App still doesn't work. Received an alert, but no message. I would not use this app for safety. More of a gimmick.
I've been around people who get the alert while others within 5 ft don't. This app works occasionally
The only good thing to come out of Cape Coral since I've moved here recently
Doesn't save locations. Hangs there.
