PostSubject: Sex Pest Tracker   Thu 30 Jul 2009, 02:58

Iphone can now be used to track local sex pests in America.



All 50 states in the US require those convicted of sexual offences to sign a register so that their whereabouts can be tracked and monitored. The information is also freely available online. ThinAir Wireless, the developer of the Offender Locator application [iTunes link], has used this database to build the tool.

Offender Locator uses the iPhone's built-in GPS to pinpoint the user's location, and then provide a map listing sex offenders in the local area. Tapping on one of the 'pins' dropped on to the map brings up a photograph of the offender, as well as their address, date of birth and list of convictions.


iPhone is a pocket gold mine Users can also search for sex offenders living nearby a friend or colleague whose address is stored in their Apple iPhone address book, or they can type in a street address to generate a list of convicted sex offenders in the local area. There are around 50,000 registered sex offenders in the United States.

"Offender Locator gives everyone the ability to find out if registered sex offenders live in their area," says the application developer, ThinAir Wireless, on its iTunes page. "Knowledge equals safety. They know where you and your family are...now it's time to turn the tables so that you know where they live and can make better decisions about where to allow your kids to play."

However, ThinAir Wireless warns users of the Offender Locator tool that because the register of offenders is constantly updated, some information contained within the application may be inaccurate or incomplete.
