Used to be great, now sucks! Impossible to re-install! Keeps sending duplicate verification codes via text, then attempts to also send verification codes to the correct e-mail address, however they never make it! When you toggle/switch screens between the app & text messaging, e-mail, citizen app reverts back to text message verification, and you get the same code numbers 2ce for each instance where you're required to request a code. You've got to be kidding me! This is ridiculous! It's a loop!

New UI is awful. Integrating the media with the factual updates means that all videos must load just to get the official information, which significantly slows down the app. Also, clicking in the map circle zooms to show your location and the incident, which means you have to zoom all the way back in to the location to see which intersection it's at. This is unnecessary because most viewers live in and know the city they're viewing and don't need their relative location highlighted.

Useful for finding out about crimes and emergencies nearby. However, I find the new UI confusing and hard to navigate. Also, the locations of incidents are always listed by the name of the neighborhood, not the city. Most of the neighborhood names in my area are obscure and no one uses them. I have to zoom the map out to see where the incident is located. City and street names would be much more useful.
