Imagine driving down the highway at night and you notice the gas gauge is very low.
You are on vacation and have never been in this part of the state before. Looking at a passing sign you see that there are only two cities nearby. Your spouse pulls out the iPhone and launches Crime Stats. Within a few seconds you are able to pull up a side by side comparison of the crime statistics for the two cities. Smiling to each other, you drive past the nearest city and exit a few miles up the road to get fuel and snacks.
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, Crime Stats is the app for you! It will help you make better decisions for yourself and your family.
Crime Stats’ simple–to-use interface allows you to look up the crime statistics for cities within the United States. More importantly, the crime statistics are ranked in relation to the rest of the nation. This allows you to see how see how a city compares to the national average for each of the various crime categories. Categories are assigned a green, yellow or red notation depending if they are below the national average, above the national average, or significantly above the national average.
You can use the built in GPS in the iPhone to lookup your current location. Or, if you prefer, you can simply search the database of over 8,700 cities (works for both iPods and iPhones).
Best of all, you can compare the statistics of two cities side by side!
