Customer Reviews

Great idea, needs work


First off - I've had to delete the app because it was absolutely killing my battery. Second - I love the idea but when it pops up it gives you no real information. Maybe if these things change I'll download it again.

Useless and a battery drainer

Sweet Chickadee

Would have been a great idea if it worked. Unfortunately, it does not. Totally useless application, unless you want to drain your batteries.

Who is Sonya?


All the crimes in atlanta were reported by someone named Sonya. Who is Sonya?
