  • Sends spam texts to get you to sign up

    I assume they got my phone # when I installed it and then deleted, and they keep sending spam texts trying to get me to install it again. Seems like this is a breach of the App Store terms of service, and possibly illegal as well.
  • Baltimore’s Best news

    By BazookaMoe
    This App is amazing if something is going on in the city you can see how much we need Baltimore City Police and Fire men and woman. Defunding the Department is not the way!

  • All they do is send covid numbers

    By KC$
    Downloaded this to know what’s going on in the community and I just get covid notifications all day... stupid!
  • Beware!

    Watch out! MONTHLY you will be charged $21.39 for this app. NO WHERE do they tell you this in advance of downloading it. Very deceptive! VERY DECEPTIVE!
  • Waste of $15/month

    By Jsowbsochsns
    I received a lot of notifications about car accidents 10-20 miles away, but never any notifications for the constant police activity and an instance of a SWAT team in my building. Good app if you want to keep an eye on traffic and car accidents for $15/month.
  • Good Info, annoying commenters

    By fretfulferret
    Pretty accurate app for getting notified of incidents and emergency situations. However I wish there was a way to filter out all the annoying facebook-esque “omg this is awful” and “thoughts and prayers” comments. Comments should be for sharing relevant info but it gets buried under all the garbage randos spam.
  • Citizen WAS great-why’d it change!?

    By Unknown apper
    I used to love the Citizen App. It was super handy. Recently they updated the system to demand more precise location information from a users phone.I wasn’t okay with that. Now mostly my Citizen app begs for more information from my phone-and doesn’t work. Also they have weird presentations about violence…. They really feel like political rallies. NO MORE CITIZEN
  • Location update issue

    By Spncrs mum
    I have enjoyed using the app and found it very helpful. I’ve never had issues until one of the latest updates it had. All of a sudden it keeps saying it can’t give me accurate info because my location isn’t accurate or turned on, and it wants me to fix this in my settings. This app is left in the “always allow” part turned on. I have clicked it to make sure, along with rebooting my phone. But I keep getting the notice daily. I’ve even uninstalled the app and reinstalled, to no avail. If this keeps being an issue, I may have to delete the app. If this was fixed, I’d be ok giving 5stars.
