More than 18,000 people have downloaded the North Carolina Department of Justice’s new app since it went live on January 31, Attorney General Roy Cooper said Monday. During a period last week it was nationally ranked as one of the top ten educational apps on iTunes.
The new app allows users to search for registered North Carolina sex offenders by GPS location or street address from wherever they are.
The app, which was unveiled last week, is currently available for iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch® and can be downloaded via iTunes® or at ncdoj.gov. Cooper’s office is continuing to work on developing an app that will work on other platforms, such as Android.
