“There’s an app for just about anything,” says a tagline for a new commercial for the Apple’s App Store … and they aren’t kidding.
A new iPhone app called “Offender Locator” allows people to track and locate sex offenders, something that mothers like Tracy Rodriguez of Houston, TX appreciate.
“I am constantly worrying about the well-being of my family,” says Rodriguez, a mother of three who uses the app several times a day. “You can’t be too careful.”
She isn’t alone; the Offender Locator app has been downloaded more than a million times and broke into the top 10 most popular apps list on iTunes when it made its debut in June. (CNN)
