Downloaded the app, filed in my info and was checking around to ensure it is configured (by the way, there aren't any settings really). Anyway I pressed the panic button and I got a call almost 40min later. I missed the call (call app told me who was calling). My issue is on a panic press 40 min is a hell of a long time for contact. Also I may not be able to take the call. Nothing happened after the call. Though with limited resources I suppose you can't expect much. No alerts are coming in of missing or wanted persons either. It needs major improvement but it is a step in the right direction
Garth McKenzie, I did the same and press the Panic button, luckily my info was not saved, so nothing happened... But I'm thinking, a call back may not be the way to go, suppose I'm in a situation where I can't TAKE a call, and in need of police assistant... I think the app should work with the GPS on our phones so it can pin point our located and whenever the panic button is press, police personnel should be despatch to the location immediately. But with our economy I don't think we are even equipped to handled this. So this app as pros and cons
This app need much work it just sit idle in the phone. Where is the alerts? No Ananda alert being posted no info of wanted person come on if you guys are serious about fighting crime at lease do something.
This app should be able to work without data. WI-FI isn't always accessible and not everyone always have data like myself.
I think this is a good app. However still needs improvement and more monitoring. I think it should be able to share the advisory that are loaded through social medias also for the anada lerts an update should be given if children who are missing are found.
This is long overdue My main problem is there's only a few handful of laws accessible at the moment, increase the amount of laws accessible on the app and the Ministry of National Security should try and workout some deal with the service providers so it would be free to use like Facebook, WhatsApp and other Social Media apps and then it would definitely be more a more effective app
