  • Some “Update”

    By Karen in Gotham
    I really liked Citizen until last week’s update—you know, the one that promised it would play better with the battery. Shortly after the update installed, and despite light usage phone usage, the battery began to drain at an alarming rate. Checking battery usage, I learned that Citizen was the culprit, consuming , on average, ~70+% of my charge. The problem persisted despite logging out and was only resolved when I, reluctantly, deleted it. Your bad, Citizen. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. ETA: Meghan, you’re as good as your word. My iPhone battery performance is back to normal and the rating is being boosted accordingly. Thanks for being so responsive!
  • Useful

    By Aryinnette
    Citizen is useful to have in order to be informed. At times i am home and i hear the sirens going outside and i really don’t have to wonder what is going on in the neighborhood because it comes up. Citizen is also practical to know what streets are more dangerous or what crimes are taking place in your area. Also they can be ahead of the news since the members of citizens record whats going on at the scene you get a closer view. My only complaint is that when i open the app when i am outside my home it doesn’t work, but that might not be Citizen’s direct fault but that of my internet connection. I have told others about it... it is a great app to download. And its free!
  • They can still save their app

    By Fddggjfdfgddg
    First, I used to be able to see what was going on in my neighborhood - now I’m told to look at the crime gossip outside my area without any focus on events close to my location. Second, I used to be able to look up old reports (at least it’d be nice to see the headline?), but they’ve censored the history. No reason to censor it. Finally, the recent feed fights over what’s popular and what’s actually local - so I end up getting updates i’m not looking for as i scroll through the feed. It’s becoming a small mess. Will update stars if they can make it work right.
  • Still crashes at startup. Still waiting for an update that works with the iPhone 5!

    By Seriously Needs Update
    (Update 11/22) The newest Citizen update now works with older iPhones, however I find that the app does not report all incidents in my surrounding area. There could be a fire or police activity and it won't show up on the app. Also, Citizen developers, if there's a way to archive past incidents on the map, that would be great. It would be really nice to see the activity in a given area over a 6- to 12-month period. (Update 11/21) Finally. Newest update of Citizen now works on older iPhones. Looking forward to using this app again! Bumping the rating back up from 1-⭐️.
  • Love love love this app

    By Mary*Ku
    Sure, it’s helped me be more aware that it’s a dumb idea to walk around SF, iPhone in hand (put that away!) and let me know what that peculiar odor was a couple of weeks ago. But I *love* Citizen for its delightful random surprises, like the time the guys were fighting at Macy’s, flinging scarves at each other, or when the woman was dancing in the street holding a hot dog. It let me know the time the man at a nearby BART station tried to assault people using a sandwich as his weapon and informed me when he returned later that day, tossing Skittles. You can’t make this stuff up, but you CAN video it.
  • Love the app!

    By Alex Vinokur
    This is an awesome idea! I cant wait for this app to be operational in NJ! Always wanted to know whats going on near me if I see police or fire activity, no more calling neighbors, app notifies you based on your GPS location. This app will become more and more popular, I would say soon we wont need to wait for news channel to arrive at location to provide breaking news as public will be able to record and post it online faster than TV networks. Great idea! Would like to wish Citizen to grow and I have no doubts it will!
  • I use to love this app!!!

    By Roachzwifey
    I have had this app since the beginning and I have lost count to how many people I have told to download and assisted them in downloading. Lately it hasn’t even been useful because I keep getting this message saying we’ve seem to have lost connection blah blah blah.. At first I thought it was because i was traveling and my signal was not good, but once I realized that even if I was connected through WiFi with full signal I would still get the same message. It is a problem with the app. I can’t do anything because it says I have no connection with unlimited data and or WiFi smh
  • Don’t want to share my phone number

    By supersuperemily
    I enjoyed having this app, and found the information it provided useful, but when it asked for my phone number in order to function (private information I’m not comfortable sharing with them), I had to uninstall it. Before I did, I read through a lot of the terms of service. I am not a lawyer, but it looks as though by sharing video with them, they take over exclusive commercial rights of that data. You can share it with your family, for example, but not share it with a news agency? Anyways, I guess they have to make money somehow but I’m sad there’s not an option to just observe the information or anonymously provide videos.
  • Buggy since updating Sep 2

    By leigh8200
    One of my favorite features of this app has been how you can select any neighborhood, and see a list of incidents for only that area. But since updating the app a couple days ago, now when I select a neighborhood, it doesn't always show the incident list--it's just blank. Hope this is a temporary glitch... Update: it seems to be working ok now, there just is sometimes a long delay before list pops onto screen. This probably has more to do with wifi issues than the app.
  • Would love to be able to use this app

    By meixellent
    Great idea, but it tells me it’s not available in San Francisco, even though my friends that have it get all kinds of San Francisco. Seems like they have some backend stuff to work out still. Edit: After four or so tries I got it to actually allow me to sign up. The “Continue” button in the process was constantly grayed out, so force quitting the app and trying a few more times finally worked. Now that I can use the app, it’s pretty useful but the download/signup process definitely needs more dev attention.
