Ratings and Reviews
App developer is constantly improving the app
There have been several updates to this app since it’s initial rollout. Like any other app in the App Store, these updates fix bugs or errors when they are identified. Frequency of updates is consistent with other apps. I have not experienced any issues with the app personally, but am aware that others on campus have. Many campuses across the country use this application - it provides a valuable service towards campus safety!
The work alone feature gives my loved ones peace of mind when I’m, working by myself at the studio.
The reports to police are easy and they work well when not wanting to call directly.
Ever since I downloaded this app last week, I open it when I have to walk to my car after dark. The emergency button is like the campus blue light kiosks — it can send an emergency call to police with your location.
