2.0 Versions Feature Sophisticated Map That Allows Zooming, More Accurate Information
HOUSTON, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The Offender Locator iPhone Application currently resides in the fourteenth spot under "Utilities" in the Apple iTunes store. The convenient tool allows busy parents to learn who is living around them, that might pose as a potential threat.
The Offender Locator iPhone Application is one of many Peace of Mind products by Vision 20/20 (a division ThinAir Wireless.) Users can perform searches based on current location (via GPS) and can also search for sex offenders living nearby a friend, whose address is stored in their Apple iPhone address book. Parents on the go can manually type in a street address to generate a list of convicted sex offenders by school, friend's houses, or parks where children's after-school activities take place.
"The popularity of the program is due to convenience," said Trip Wakefield, President of ThinAir Wireless. "We've made registered sex offender data more readily accessible for busy families. We believe that the more knowledge you have, the better decisions you can make to protect the ones you love."
Both versions of the Offender Locator iPhone Application (free: 2.5 and full: 2.2) have been updated to accommodate feedback from users. The upgraded version pulls data from each state's sex offender registry more frequently, ensuring more accurate and up-to-date information. User reviews also suggested that a map with zooming features would be beneficial. Consequently, the new map is more sophisticated and allows for four different map viewing capabilities including map, satellite, hybrid or terrain.
"You asked, we listened," said Wakefield. "These changes were the result of the feedback we received. Our mission is to positively impact families and help them create a safer environment for their loved ones."
This is one of many Peace of Mind products by Vision 20/20 (a division of ThinAir Wireless). The line uses state-of-the-art technologies to provide families and individuals the most information possible to create a safer environment for their loved ones. Peace of Mind products are used most often to track high-risk individuals such as teenage drivers, Alzheimer's wanderers and autistic children.
