It's cool knowing what's going on around you in SF in terms of crime and other public safety, but the comments section is terrible. Oftentimes people are berating each other and posting other vulgar comments and there's no way to block or report them within the app. Those basic functionalities should be included in the app.
To make it zoom to your location there is a gray circle button on the lower right corner of map. Love this app! Tells me where to steer clear of wherever I am. Other citizens share videos of incidents while they are happening. This is really eyes everywhere through all of us.
I think you need people more familiar with the SF Bay Area. Too many times the location information is wrong. So then the notification is useless.
great idea and very usable, but after using it for over 6 months I have never found any relevant info. case in point a semi-major fire broke out at the building next to mine - blocked off street, 3 fire trucks, redirected traffic on a major street. no report on citizen. I've also seen some reports that were nearby, but saw nothing on the street
I don't like that it tells me stuff in other areas instead of mine. I can see the cops near me and nothing pops up. No real crimes are updated like it should be. I don't care about what's going on in another neighborhood. The alerts should be by my house or surrounding area smh
Love this app. I share on fb and alot of people ask what app it is... im in NY... so it works beautiful for me... most wish it was available in their area. Hopefully you can expand coverage!
