Ratings and Reviews
Love the app BUT
the issues I’ve had with it is sometimes the app will close on me when I’m reading about a crime that’s from an earlier date so if I try to scroll back a few months to see the crimes that were posted then, it will close out and I have to scroll and find it once again. Also sometimes the crime summaries aren’t updated but the photos provided will have updated captions so it can be a little confusing.
What I’d really Love as an update for the app would be if you could have the option to chose the dates in the crimes tab so you can view other crimes when you’ve gone through the recently posted ones without having to scroll so much or maybe an option to view “oldest to newest”. Otherwise I love the app!
Finally! A True Crime Library
The vast amount of content within this app is so well managed and curated, with access to all the media coverage and imagery of the period in which the crime took place. They’ve collated all the historical news and TV show content that covered each of these crime stories. There are numerous podcasts that detail the events and continue to discuss these crimes to this very day. There’s no links sending you off to another media app ...it’s all in this single app. Try walking around the actual crime scene within one of the augmented reality Door experiences while listening to the podcast describing the events that led up to this moment. Deeply immersive. A whole different perspective on headline crimes I thought I fully understood when I read about them at the time they occurred. Highly recommend the unlimited monthly subscription. It’s a good value, as you get access to all the new augmented reality Doors as they come out, AND you can continue to access the entire library of AR Doors. In terms of content, this thing is massive.
Great Information and Updates
The app has a lot of good information on it from both past and current cases. At the time of typing this is October 20, 2021 which is about a week after the Gabby Petito live autopsy reveal was announced. I heard it from this app first and went straight to it. There aren’t many free AR doors, but one they do have that’s free is the JonBenet Ramsey case, which is one of my favorite cases. They have links and videos and articles below their information. My favorite feature of the app is “This Day in Crime.” It will show a crime that happened on that day in time, and I like to look at those crimes and put small remembrance notes for the victims on school locker. All around, amazing app with great info and definitely the best true crime news app I’ve downloaded.
