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!
This would work
How about having an option to play video or go live video since many users like to record an incident just to get viewers. Aside from that I’m thankful for this app. I’m more aware of what’s happening around me than before. It’s great knowing that I can be notified if I’m in a dangerous area but I think having that option would be great that way we wouldn’t have unnecessary recordings of someone’s apartment or their pets thats nowhere near the main incident. If its live or a recording we get the option before doing so. Thanks Citizen hopefully this can be added in a future update. thanks.
They can still save their app
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.
