Waste of time and space. It is an "app" which is not much more than a collection of links to web pages around uic. It would be better to simply put all of them on on place on the uic website. Why do I need to have 1 more "app" taking up space on my phone?

Used the Police Virtual Escort from Polk CTA to my car-2 blocks. Took a minute to connect. Easy. For safety, need to end walk after inside car though.
