Offender Locator for Negative User Reviews

Subjects show up in wrong citiesI enjoy the app however I’ve noticed that certain registrants that show up in my city are actually located in a completely different city in a completely different part of the state. I think the issue is that the street address is the same. Should be an easy fix.Version: 5.1.6

Side view for some profilesSome profiles only show a side profile. Not trying to be funny, but I would like to see the face for obvious reasons..Version: 5.2.0

Used to be goodYears ago this app was great. Now it’s information is all wrong. Addresses and pictures don’t match people at all and descriptions are not accurate. I would not trust this app for its intended purpose at all. Stay away.Version: 5.2.1

Don’t buy this!!Wish I had read the reviews before I paid for this jumbled mess. Wrong information or Written very poorly. Find another app and read reviews before you buy the owners of this app doesn’t seem to care anymore..Version: 5.1.6

Descriptions do not match offenders photos!Seriously. You post photo’s of African Americans and put in their descriptions that they have blond hair, blue eyes and are white. Seriously????? How can we belie e your information is correct if you cannot even post the obvious? Sorry I actually paid for this ap..Version: 5.1.6

Does Not Stay CurrentI know for a fact of a person that was released from prison in mid-late March that has been on Texas’ sex offender website ever since - it’s April 26th and he still does not appear in this app. Just keep this in mind. Edit: It’s now May 12th. Offender still doesn’t appear in this app. Save your money and just bookmark your state’s offender website if you want current info..Version: 5.1.4

Needs to be updated or removed from storeApp not working and it looks like it won’t be fixed..Version: 5.2.1

Not accurateThere are many registered sex offenders that are not included on this app. Another issue is that the list shows offenders in a completely different state, nowhere near current location. The free app that I have (not the lite version of this one) is much better. I wish I hadn’t wasted my $2–hopefully this review will help others not waste their money..Version: 5.2.0

Not accurateThis app needs to be up to date. I know of several offenders that are not listed on this and that is just wrong. I paid money for the accuracy !!!.Version: 5.2.0

Small fixGreat but when it shows what offense they did it just shows “;;” and nothing else..Version: 5.2.0

Don't botherOnly one person in the uk on the list. Wow we must be doing well!?.Version: 0

InaccurateIt DOES list sex offenders in the area I live. However, many of the offender mug shots are listed over a description of another offender, many don’t match the sex or race or address. What gives?.Version: 5.1.8

A lot of wrong pictures and duplicatesA lot of wrong pictures and duplicates. Not worth the money. I particularly know an offender and his picture is wrong. He was white and a black person is in the picture. Also there are a lot of entries with same name and address with different pictures. How should I trust this app?.Version: 5.1.8

:(Doesn't load ANYTHING.Version: 3.0

Search brokenIf you search, the app reports “X found” but doesn’t list the results ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.Version: 5.2.1

INCORRECT INFO IN APP!!This app is a great idea, but they have the wrong photos paired with the wrong images. For example ... as I write this, there is a duplicated entry for a man in MA named Michael David Gilim. Both entries have the exact same information in them, but have two different images attached to them — one of a black man, one of a white man. Obviously, they can’t both be correct. I found this mistake within the first TWENTY SECONDS of using the app ... which makes it clear that it’s pretty unreliable. Five stars for the idea, but two for poor execution..Version: 5.2.0

Ok - not always accurateIt hasn’t been updated in over a year, which is disappointing. I notice some names aren’t correct, they show as numbers. This usually means that the way the data is being pulled in isn’t correct. Most likely the feed has been changed, but the way it’s being consumed by the app hasn’t been updated to reflect that..Version: 5.2.0

Used to include every offender in my areaIt used to include all the offenders in the area and surrounding towns now it’s trying to say there’s only a few that are living at the prison on Devens but none for like a 30 mile radius around me in all directions. CLEARLY not accurate at all. Would not put any trust in this anymore and I have the paid version I’ll probably uninstall and purchase a more reliable one..Version: 5.2.0

Doesn’t workNot sure what’s wrong or if this is even a real app, there are people with the same photos but different names and the. There are some of the same person/people that are in three different locations, I also looked up by name someone I know should be on here and they aren’t..Version: 5.2.0

Features like search dont work whats point of paid versionApp doesnt function.Version: 5.2.1

Pictures are wrong.Many times the pictures are inaccurate. Missing offenders known to be living in areas etc. not a very good app.Version: 5.1.4

Dosent show allIt shows none by me and i have two rhat i found on the webiste. This dosent show all of them. It also kept glitching waste of money.Version: 5.2.1

App somewhat worksNow this app does work to a point. I never knew how many sick people were in our area. Now the part that doesn’t work is I know we have 4 in our trailer park with 1 being our neighbor. Out of the 4, only 1 shows up. Hopefully the bugs get fixed as this app is great to have..Version: 5.1.8

YIKESMore often than not, the “offenders’” mugshots don’t even match the physical description, like a white guy’s mugshot for an offender described as black, or vice versa, etc. (this occurs a RIDICULOUS number of times!) This is terribly ineffective, and makes me seriously question ALL of the info provided, even if these mugshot are real offenders. Not sure if I want to keep this app. Fix it and we’ll see..Version: 5.1.8

GarbageI purchased the app for my wife, For one the search doesn’t work and locks up For two when searching by location it only shows 100, and I know there’s way more than it’s showing. It’s got potential, but for now I uninstalled it off her phone. Until it’s working as advertised, it’s garbage That’s putting it nicely Waste of 2.99 plus tax..Version: 5.2.1

TrashSearch button is completely useless. Just shows you a blank page..Version: 5.2.1

Don’t payPaid the 4.99 and I can’t even use the search feature, and the info isn’t accurate. How are you born in 1993 and your last offense was in 87’?🤔.Version: 5.2.1

List is old!!!! 2021 people are not addedSave your money. This app is very in accurate. I’m getting pings on another app telling me offender moved into area and gives his address. This app lists nothing around me. Worthless, gives you false sense of security..Version: 5.2.1

RubbishWaste of time, don't bother please!!!!.Version: 2.71

Some missing offendersI was looking at the neighborhood my children live in and found no offenders. I then looked into whether there was another way to look for offenders and found there actually are offenders in both areas I searched on the app. Don’t depend solely on this app..Version: 5.1.4

Not worth it at allEvery single offender says it happened in 1997. All of them. Nothing is up to date. Nothing is recent. The navigation is horrible. I’m very upset I paid for it. Even if it was a couple bucks. I’m about to delete or off of my phone ..Version: 5.2.1

Not accurate at allI compared the app to my state registry. There are 6 known offenders that have lived by me for years and this app does not even list 1 of them. Highly inaccurate, not worth the $1.Version: 5.1.4

Please update!Hey—this app has been great until recently—it’s not current as far as the offender database. Please update!.Version: 5.1.5

WTH?!?I got the lite version and looked for a better one. $150?!? So I bought this and now it’s not showing me a thing, and telling me to upgrade. Hey 5 bucks is 5 bucks and I don’t have $150 to spend on an app. I have 2 little ones that play outside a lot! I would like to know who’s around!.Version: 5.2.0

Offenders with wrong names. Not AccurateThis App has offenders names listed with wrong photos. Some of them are listed twice. Totally inaccurate information. What good is this app when basically nothing’s correct. This app should either be updated correctly or be reported. It’s a joke.Version: 5.2.0

Information is not up to date.Today i received a postcard in the mail advising of a high risk sex offender in the community. I then try to search for offender in the app and he is not in the system. Kind of scary because I believed the app was current and up to date of the offenders..Version: 5.2.0

Does not workI purchased this app five minutes ago. It will not let me look in a town without a name. I would like a full refund!!.Version: 5.2.1

Can’t request updates on offenders - all have wrong birthdateTook away ability to request updates to offender database. All offenders have birthdate of January 30, 1954. What gives!.Version: 5.2.1

Great idea poor executionTerrible, waste of 2 bucks. Inaccurate to the point of being useless. I know there is an offender on my street yet this does not show that. I know there are over a dozen in an apartment complex in my town yet this app shows zero. Love the idea, love the pin and picture mechanic, but it is so inaccurate it is useless. Refunds should be available..Version: 5.2.0

Missing offendersThis app is great as far as information. However I have a sex offender that lives across the street and doesn’t show. So I searched by name and it shows correct address but 40 miles away. Obviously that’s incorrect. I have another 1 block away and also doesn’t show. Just be careful that not all pop up when searching areas your in..Version: 5.1.5

Alias Names are brokenIt says every single predator has the alias name of “Watson, Daniel”, which is clearly an error. In a task as serious as identifying sexual predators, there is no room for this kind of stupid error..Version: 5.2.1

Useless garbageThis is the most inaccurate app I’ve ever seen. And with something of this nature it should be as accurate as possible. I know there is more than 4 sex offenders in Vancouver WA. My supposed to know if my kids are going to be safe or not with this app if it doesn’t give accurate information it should be taken off App Store completely. I never even write reviews. But this is something I couldn’t stay quiet about..Version: 5.1.6

Not updatedI know a sex offender that I actually just found out about (he’s been registered since 2000) and he is not on here. I wonder how many others are missing in my area. I could’ve kept me $2.Version: 5.1.8

Update?I paid for this app I don’t find it “fair” that the data is a year old! If you as a company are no longer active with the app. remove it from the App Store!! This is super disappointing.Version: 5.2.0

App is junkThis app is junk it not accurate. Missing people wrongdoing addresses. And info is out of date don’t waste your money or time using this app..Version: 5.1.5

NOT EVEN CLOSE TO CORRECT!This app is not even close to correct! I live in a downtown area of a medium size city and it shows ZERO offenders anywhere near me. Yet, a smaller city about 30 miles away shows A LOT of offenders. In addition, an app called “Sex Offenders” shows quite a few near me, as I know there are. That app is far more accurate. This one is NOT. 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼..Version: 5.1.5
