Sex Offender Smartphone Apps Will Aid Parents this Halloween
This Halloween, technology will assist some parents when it comes to 'Trick or Treat' safety. A number of smart phone apps are available for either free or under $3 that use the GPS function on the phone to warn parents if they're in the neighborhood where a registered sex offender lives.
One app called 'Offenders' from Life 360 shows the actual residence of the registered sex offender and includes the address and a photo of the individual.
There are several of these apps to choose from in the Apple App Store and the Android market place.
