Ratings and Reviews
Good initiative but too many false alarms
This is a good idea, and I've been supportive of this app since many months ago. However, it frequently notifies users through CNA about incidents around the world. I feel that this causes desensitisation to the importance of notifications from this app, and when something happens in Singapore people may mistake it for just another report from CNA. On the other hand, this may cause false alarm for people who think that a notification from this app is an emergency in Singapore.
Good app but an idea for a new feature maybe?
Rlly good app to promote safety but I saw another app (not sure what its called) but it allows you to press and hold this button for three seconds and it'll send your gps coordinates + personal info etc to the police and somebody close that you've inputted ( I think). But if you're safe, you can just input your password within the ten seconds after you've pressed and no alert will be sent out. So I thought this would be a good idea to implement here since some situations dont allow for you to talk or type much and it would be faster like this. However, there could be a lot of pranks if this did happen so maybe you can ask people to key in their nric as personal info as well so they wouldnt dare to anyhow send since they could be tracked down easily. Idk haha just a thought since I think that app idea was pretty smart.
Good initiative but poor marketing. Forcing people to download a stupid app no matter how righteous your cause is will only net you negative reviews. You cannot have your cake and eat it. Sure, you might artificially inflate the numbers and maybe some regulars can go for a Tiger Beer in Gombak Mess later for fulfilling their ridiculous quota, but you can't expect people to give you a 5-star rating for an utter waste-of-bandwidth. Well, I guess this wayang initiative would be a great way to pad your resumes, no?
The silly so-called Gen X-ers and Baby Boomers calling Millenials a Strawberry Generation with their negative reviews should all sign on and show us how it should be done since they seem to be extra garang despite their old age. And if any of them are regulars, then wow, you guys sure are salty whiners, aren't you? Calling si-ginnas whiny but you guys are complaining about people complaining, and still can sound so righteous and full of yourself with that is laughable at best.
Edit: Found a new hidden function in app, it integrates with my LBV, causing it to home in on and fly towards my location like in the Ironman movies. Except less cool.
