Too Much

Immediately bombard with 100 popups to pay for premium services. I couldn’t even try the app out to see if I want to spend money monthly. Let users try your app first, and then ask them to upgrade to premium services.

🚨WARNING Tracking device!

There is no reason this app must use a cell phone number to work… Sorry it’s just another way to collect users personal data. We give our phone number way to easily these days. This app could easily authenticate with an email and password…. If warning the public of nearby danger is the real purpose… Nice try scammers / spooks. NOT ME.

Very deceiving

My husband downloaded the app and must have accidentally signed up for the 14 day upgrade trial. He never received an emailed receipt of payment until this month (month 7 of being charged). On top of that the money was taken off of his company card without his authorization, mind you he doesn’t get the card statements as it is an out of town expenditure card. It is absolutely unlawful to charge ridiculous fees without notification or consent because his company definitely did not sign up for these services.

Garbage app

Garbage app that tricks you into a $50 monthly subscription, steals all of your data, and gives very little in return. Complete crap.

Stick to reporting criminal activity

If I want to know about good deeds or dogs bring reunited, I'll go to Next Door!

Good start, but needs tweaks

Firstly, there’s no landscape mode on iPads. I rarely use mine in portrait mode, since it’s in a folio case. Second, Citizen needs much better filtering, as I get alerts for things which aren’t relevant to me.

It’s working so far, but I am mainly writing this so the review requests go away

Danger! Privacy Violations!!!

Citizen App is FORCING users to give precise location to use app. This is against Apple policy. Be mindful of your privacy people. REPORT. Check your locations for settings to see who you share with. Be safe and protect your location.
