Ratings and Reviews
Improve crisis design
Folks who use this frequently, like for late night outings, might not have this issue, but for those of us using this app to contact University law enforcement, in the moment of a crisis, either will not be able to enter or will forget the complex password you require.
In an emergency, rapid contact is key. Even folks who remember their own will be fumbling through the key pad in a stressful time. The "phone call" app is faster.
Put an emergency call button on the screen - pre-login. Let the dispatchers authenticate while having the other resources the app provides. Otherwise, in an emergency, I will opt to place a phone call.

Hello! I'd like to let you know the app no longer requires a complex password and has some new features. It now takes fewer taps to contacts safety officials from the app then opening the native phone and dialing. If you have other ideas I'd love to hear them email@example.com
I haven’t had to actively use this app yet, but I am happy it exists. However, my one complaint is that is uses so much battery. My battery has been dying super quick ever since I downloaded it, and according to my battery reports, it had the second highest percentage of battery usage at 13%, without me even opening the app. If possible, I’d appreciate an update that allows the app to use less battery life. After all, no matter how useful an app is, a dead phone is not a useful phone.

Hello! We released an update this week (v2.2.3) that should solve this issue for all iOS devices. The app that shows battery usage is relative and takes a little more than 24 hours to update, so if you upgrade and it's not showing lower usage in a few days please let me know (or if you have any other feedback) at firstname.lastname@example.org thanks for reporting this issue.
Update uses too much battery
I’ve had this app for several months with no issues. After the last update, I would go through over half my battery while at work on the campus that this app is for! Deleted the app and voila - no more draining battery. Also didn’t really find that I used the app at all. I can get notifications through my work.

We hear you loud and clear and apologize if Guardian over-used your battery, we addressed this issue in the latest release (2.0.3) while still maintaining the ability to receive alerts based on your location. There are some neat features in there and more coming soon - we hope you'll reconsider. -mroth@ravemobilesafety.
