Good app but...

...every time I load the app, it wants me to sign into itunes then it wants me to subscribe. I then have to say I want to subscribe for it to give me a pop up thats says I have subscribed. Its really frustrating as often when using this I am in a ‘dynamic’ situation! The other frustrating thing is that before you can use the app it makes you update it (in app not app store). Some CJ codes are missing. Other than that this app is cracking and I feel its worth the 99p a month. If I was a probationer then more so. Even as a 10 yr skipper I cant know everything😀

A real shame. A very useful and user friendly app has been spoiled.
Constant requests for subscription, which I will not do having bought a 'paid for' app. Since these requests started, the app crashed whenever you type a single letter into the search bar. Extremely frustrating and renders the app all but useless.

**update** As per above review really...
Still had no updates due to not paying and the bugs are of course are still there.. I have looked at the developers responses to other criticisms of the subscription costs, but sadly, although I sympathise, I don’t believe it makes it right. When you choose to create an app with what clearly has a relatively limited target market, you have to consider that at some point ‘new’ users paying enough to fund development will dry up. Having paid for the app when there was no mention of a monthly fee, it really is a case of moving the goal posts. If new terms were created including monthly fees and new folk bought it, then use that as the source of income, but changing the cost after taking the initial payment under a different set of terms is unfair.

If the developer joined the job under the old pension scheme, I do hope that he/she is happily accepting that he/she is now on the new pension scheme and will NOT be claiming for what they previously paid in to and will accept what they are given because ‘needs must’...

Fantastic App - Police Officer Review

This app is fantastic, and for 99p a month you can’t go far wrong. I use this every shift, if not more than a few times a day. I currently work within investigation and this is the perfect tool to stick on my desk whilst doing interview plans, looking for guidance, completing MG forms and even looking for CJS codes for building charges - this is just to name a few bits I use, but this app saves time looking through PNLD or flicking through Blackstones. What I like even more is that the creators have now got a Facebook page and they actively ask users to make suggestions for updates they’d like to see, and are always on hand to rectify any problems. I thoroughly promote use of this app to any Officers, Detectives, PCSO’s and Specials.
