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.

The latest update seems to have broken the app. You cannot see any reviews and I was originally signed in but after the update I was signed out, I guess. I don't see my past review either. I would suggest Openigloo pauses their social media and fix the app because in its current state this is pretty useless and there's no reason to encourage people to use the app if it's broken.
