Newest update ruined effectiveness.

Used to appreciate this app because I could easily check my local area and what was happening. There was often local engagement so you would see feedback about follow ups, if real, etc. You had the option to view other cities if you wished which could be helpful for travel. Now you only see like 3 events in your area and citizen engagement seems down. They replaced seeing more locally with videos of random other places (those are not helpful to me) and have no choice but to see them and not be able to pick local. Not sure why the change except to add in apparent video ads with those videos? Please revert back so the app is relevant again.

It won’t open on iPhone

I’ve downloaded it twice now. I guess everyone using it either has an android or the newest iPhone. It won’t open past the first screen on my phone.

Citizen news is useless

The app use to have a feed for local news stories, instead in its place are a bunch of stories from around the country which does not benefit me at all. Before the update last week or so, I could check that feed for a filtered list of all relevant local stories. Now I get to know what’s going on in Arizona when I live in nyc. Really disappointing

Ruined by excessive notifications

Used to be very useful. Now it seems I get a new notification every 10 minutes for car accidents. Not helpful at all.

I’m not sure why the decision to put the news feed to national news instead of local news was done. I do not see an option to change it. Not only that but it plays automatically and loud.

Dislike of the updated news view

The app itself is pretty cool and informative. I just wish they would change the news view back so you could select the city you wanted to view the news for.

The stupid sounds

If you don’t provide an option to turn off or customize these extremely annoying notification sounds, I’m going to delete the app. I want an app that provides information, not one that continuously buzzes my phone with a new jingle every 30 minutes.

Notification sound

Used to love it until they changed their notification sound. If y’all don’t change it soon you’re gonna have a bunch of people deleting this app

Being Blocked

This site needs to have a better system of oversight!! People who are registered can ban people based on political views and that’s not right!! It’s a violation of freedom of speech and this site seems to be okay with someone who disagrees with a comment regardless if it does not promote hate, violence or sexual explicit material!! It’s unfair to ban an individual based on their views!! A complete violation of our protected rights!!!!!
