Wonderful app! 5/5
By Kirill B.
Great, shows all incidents nearby, much more reliable than police scanners or Nextdoor
This is the absolute best app ever.
Nearly useless app 2/5
The map constantly freaks out when I try to zoom in or swipe. Not to mention late reportings so why keep this app when my phone alerts me faster?
Lt Gary Howard 5/5
Great pictures, Wonderful Story, Everyone should have this App
One question/how good is the app 5/5
Does the app works with out enternet? The app is the best I consider everyone to get this app
It is a good app. You get notifications when something happens near your area. You can also see what’s going on in other areas. The only thing I think would improve it, is if there was a way to find out what happened after the alert. Like if it was a burglary were they caught? If it was a reckless driver were they caught. An update of the alert would be nice.
Really Good! 5/5
This app is fantastic, and it always keeps me alert ⚠️ from by surrounding neighborhood.
App is great but shows past events that had happened days or months ago. Which isn’t help on things of today.
Good to know what to avoid 5/5
By Prize life1
It’s good to know when somethings going on a block away and the only reason you’re alert it is because the citizens App.
Neighbor hoods watching 5/5
I love this app. I check before I live my Brooklyn apt. Don’t want to run into any crime as it’s happening. Years ago, ran right into a gun chase between thugs. Scariest moment in my life.
I love this app! 5/5
By Brook linn
Although it’s frightening to realize the level of crime occurring around the city, I love knowing what’s happening in real time. I’ve avoided a train route where a suspect was alleged to have run. Citizens app keeps me from failing into a state of being to comfortable with my telephone on the outside. I would definitely say it keeps me aware of my surroundings. Additionally, the local news has been using videos captured on the citizens app for their news reports because a citizen with citizens app will always be there before the news van. I especially like the ability to input various neighborhoods and areas to stay informed of my parents, husband and daughters areas as well.
One star because I guess this app forgets that San Diego is a major city yet its not available in this area?
Very handy let’s you know what’s going on with criminals all over the boroughs
Best App 5/5
This is a good app for us citizens🙌🏾👍🏽✅
Love it 5/5
This app is so addictive
Citizen watch 2/5
Not much to see
Needs crime alert radius 2/5
This app would be great if there was a way to control the radius around my home (not my current location) for the alerts. Right now the only way is by choosing a neighborhood, but neighborhood boundaries are arbitrary. I don't need or want to know about every incident in my neighborhood, but i do want to know about things that happen within a few blocks of my house.
This would make the difference for this app going from being an interesting curiosity, to actually being useful. In its current state this app gives too many alerts about things that are happening too far away to be useful.
Looks like a good app 1/5
...would probably be better if I could use it living in one the largest cities in the US though 😂
-Houston waits for it
App not loading 3/5
App won’t load completely after latest update, which was today
Only shows New York 1/5
They say it's supposed to work in NY and Bay Area. I'm in the later but only see New York. Settings are correct. Just doesn't work.
Can’t believe i downloaded the ap and it tells me there is no coverage here in Atlanta...
By Gadget Guru1
Not in my area
Not Available In All Areas 1/5
Not available! Huge bummer.
Enter zip code 3/5
I hadn’t been able to use the app yet since I am currently overseas but was interested in knowing what was happening in my hometown. Being able to add a zip code in for a location would be a nice idea instead of using only gps location.
Not available 1/5
How is Philly not covered. Seriously
Town name missing 2/5
When did the name of Broad Channel, in Queens NY get changed to Cross Bay Blvd? Cross Bay Blvd is the street that runs thru Broad Channel, it is not the name of the area.
Small thing...but if you live here, annoying.
Embrace racism, Trump’s view of the World 1/5
Are you an old white person that has a gun you bought for “home pretection”? Do you freak out about a caravan of illegals moving toward the border (that only seems to happen prior to an election). Do you support the type of subtle racism whereby you lock your doors immediately when you see black person? Do you think all minorities are up to something to intentionally harm white people? Then this is the app for you! Move aside ghettotracker and sketchfactor! From the makers of the banned app Vigilante, comes the latest cutting edge racist technology to help you discriminate against a variety of different skinned people!
Censorship at its finest! 1/5
The owners of this app doesn’t want the public to comment. On the nonsense that goes on in our cities, with people calling in all kinds of false reporting that goes unsubstantiated. Which endangers life, they should be sued. They are blocking people’s 1st amendment rights, by censoring Free Speech!
This App Is Stupid 1/5
I can’t comment on any incident because I’m banned when I did nothing what so ever. If they don’t unban me soon I’m going to have to get my lawyer into this.
BLOCKED FOR WHAT 1/5
By chrissy G floxks
This is nonsense I got blocked for no reason...Bull crap unbelievable..These elders couldn’t find there glasses and was reading sh*** wrong
Why do you have to keep pestering me with a banner to set my location to always which I have to keep pressing the X to close? If I want to set my location to always, I’ll go into settings and do it myself. Otherwise good app.
Sorry, no mobile for me 1/5
Deleted immediately. I don’t use apps that force me to give them my mobile number. I don’t want you to have SMS access to me.
One of the best apps 5/5
This is one of the best apps. I get a notification if there’s an incident near me with live video, comments and updates. This app also keeps our children safe, I reroute my kid if there’s an incident in a certain area.
Great app! It helps a lot in many different ways!
What’s the Holdup? 1/5
I’ve been waiting awhile to use this app and never have been able too yet. I don’t know why it’s not in my area yet. It’s insane
App requires a phone number and location access. 1/5
I don’t trust this developer at all. Shady. And their canned, repetitive responses to reviews show they’re not really listening to users.
I don’t care about local alerts. I’m never going to broadcast live. There is no reason for me to allow location services, when a simple zip code would work.
Secondly, I’m deleting this app because it will now no longer launch without you providing a phone number. Even if you’re on a device like an iPad. Sorry, not going to happen.
Not enough coverage. 1/5
By COOKIE MAN!!!!!!!!!
Y’all ain’t in ANY city. Shaking my dang head
Chat Messages 5/5
Can someone tell me how to delete a chat message that was typed in by accident?!?!
Waste of time 1/5
I read the details and downloaded the app. Upon opening, a message says they aren’t in my (major) city yet. Why didn’t you put that in the details in the App Store? Seems dishonest just to get more downloads. What a waste of time.
Censorship of Free Speech 1/5
You can say whatever you wish no matter how offensive and racist as long as it is in line with their “progressive” agenda-
Make a few conservative statements and you get blocked. So sick of silicone valley infringement on free speech. What’s happening in this country by tech company progressives is nothing short of criminal. There needs to be oversight and legal enforcement of speech infringement. These folks need to start being held accountable.
Give Zip Code Options 1/5
We have children in NYC, Jersey, St Louis....I wanted to get alerts for these locations not my small town. Please give options to get alerts from different zip codes other than my own.
Great app, confusing navigation 3/5
The UI needs work. It’s a bit schizophrenic and completely unintuitive. Got a Nationwide Alert and I still cannot find a way back in the app to view it. Great app tho. Just needs to be organized better.
Wish you’d expand your coverage area. That’s my only gripe. Me actually using it!! I seen it on a relatives iPhone when I visited and was jealous.. please help
Can’t use app. 2/5
Honestly I don’t like how you can only see what’s happening in your area. Some people wanna be more open to everything else happening. I can’t even use the app now cause it’s not available in my community.
Don’t want to share my phone number 1/5
I enjoyed having this app, and found the information it provided useful, but when it asked for my phone number in order to function (private information I’m not comfortable sharing with them), I had to uninstall it.
Before I did, I read through a lot of the terms of service. I am not a lawyer, but it looks as though by sharing video with them, they take over exclusive commercial rights of that data. You can share it with your family, for example, but not share it with a news agency? Anyways, I guess they have to make money somehow but I’m sad there’s not an option to just observe the information or anonymously provide videos.
Please allow customized alerts 5/5
Love this app, absolutely phenomenal. I would really like if I could draw a customized alert area a couple blocks around my house and get texts if anything whatsoever popped up... please make a bit more customizable, otherwise it’s perfect!
criminal uses this app 1/5
criminal used this app
Not available in your area yet 1/5
I learned about Citizen from an article on the App Store. I installed it and to my surprise it said that Citizen is not available in my area yet. Do you think this is a good user experience? Can’t you at least be considerate enough to have a disclaimer that Citizen might not be available in one’s area before one installs the app? Can you please be more respectful of people’s time?
Ios failure 1/5
By IM Toast
IPhone app total fail today. Would not get past opening page. Deleted and re-downloaded app, now it won’t verify my phone #. Also tried restarting phone. Nothing.
