- We got rid of some seriously sketchy bugs!
Not useful in its current state.
I'll start by saying that some of the reports I read were really offensive.
My confusion with this app is its usefulness. I read quite a few reports from my area. Almost all of them were posted "a long time ago". To me, an app like this is only really useful if the reports are dated. There should be a slider or category selector based on date. Maybe do 3 categories at the top: Within 3 years, Within a Year, Within the last 6 months? I'm not sure of the best way to do this but dating the reports and then organizing them by date would make this app at least slightly useful.
Another thing that would be nice is a list view. Randomly tapping map pins is a total pita.
Very helpful, thank you!!
Anything that helps us avoid dangerous neighborhoods and areas is a big help. Everyone benefits from this app, thanks.
Hope it only gets better and more updated.
Finally a loading fix.
Finally fixed the loading time. Also, this thing is hilarious
