You are better off using a computer to type your review. I had to do mine about 4 times; any time you break from the screen, the page refreshes, and you lose all of your text. If you allow the screen to go black; if you receive a text message/call; if you switch to another app and then come back, then you will need to start all over. It is extremely frustrating. I also hit the submit button and nothing happened, and ofc once I hit the back button to retry, everything was gone.

Useless, stupid app Provides no useful information Also, what little information that's there is stale, and unreliable. For example, how does knowing that there was a noise complaint in 2002 help me now, 19 years later, when ownership and management of the building has changed hands 3 times since then??? Also, app crashes all the time... Complete waste

Apologies for this frustration. Based on your feedback, we have limited open violation data to 5 years so it is relevant to apartment hunters. We have also made quite a few updates to improve the performance of the app - we'd love for you to check them out and update your review here if your issues were resolved. Thanks!

Great idea with useful information if you get it to work. The date picker and other text inputs were not displaying the text. And this is for Google Pixel phone which is unacceptable. Besides that, for the email sign up the "Sign up" button is missing. You need to polish your app.
