Helps me be aware of crime around me
The app has seen significant performance enhancements in recent months, so I'm bumping it up to 4-stars. It's still not perfect, but much better. Keep it up! UI and UX still need work. The navigation is frustrating. It should give you the option to use you Geo coordinates to use as the "from" location. Typing in addresses in a thing of the past!
Good idea but they want permission to make phone calls?? I think not.
RedZone app takes Google maps to the next level. Best map I've used yet!
Good idea... For Google to steal..
Garbage app. Only shows user reported crime, which there isn't much to see in all the places I've tried to get directions to so far. Once you get directions it only shows you the current direction. There is no scrolling around the map. So, if you're stuck at a traffic light you can't zoom out the map to see more of the area you are in and then re-center it when you start moving again. it would be better if it also had the ability to show crime statistics say over the past year from some database somewhere. This way even in the areas where there is hardly any crime, you can still see crime. Databases are probably taken from police data, not user data who can falsify reports.
- Enhanced user interface
- Introduced Social Tab - where the crime related tweets for the area being viewed can be seen in a simpler manner.
- New features and tools to view, report and filter crime
