Wanted to get feedback on the iOS design before writing code. Kept it close to Android version but added some styling changes of my own of my vision for the UI/UX (user interface/user experience). Any feedback helps up front. Would be great to know what iOS devices and version everyone is on too to have a general idea (can PM me as to not hijack this thread).

iOS layout looks great! Another thread might be best... Do you have any pics of how the map would look?

That is really cool!
BTW looking at Android and iOS designs it is clear who of us live in the state patrolled by airplanes and who in the state patrolled by helicopters :)

I love the simplicity of the app! One of my favorite things about it is how simple and in turn how stable it is. It's not very hardware intensive and I think you/we should be very careful about adding too many features if they create too much complexity, slowing the app making it unstable and such. This is especially important for people with slower phones or those who run a lot of apps at once. (When I drive I use jbv1, highway Radar, vvaze so I can contribute to the crowdsourcing, and a music app)

VVaze seems to be so dang unreliable to me lately. Half the time I have it running it eventually crashes, and half the time I go to mark a leo it says it's searching for data when I have a great connection. It's been like this on multiple phones and I think it's a result of a pretty bogged down with features app.

I actually snapped a photo today of highway Radar trustily reporting a leo ahead and vvaze by contrast is all clear! I disliked vvaze before this but your app has shown me to never trust vvaze! It fails at reporting its own database reliably. Highway Radar ftw

I know what you mean. Daze will show "searching network" when my phone clearly has a solid connection. Restarting Daze often solves the issue but I hate dicking around with my phone while driving. Hwy Radar is stable so far.

Just wanted to drop in a little screen shot from an aircraft vascar trap this AM... I wasn't actually there, just spoofed my location to add Waze alerts but I fired it up and it worked like a charm:

Looks Great! When you open a new thread post link to it here. What are you going to call the Apple App? Def Going to Watch for it.

Has any one experienced when they have a recent notification that generates the exclamation mark and it is opposite (what does that mean by the way?), the text runs over the distance?

Police opposite means the location pin is opposite side of the road from your direction of travel. It's still a possible threat though, so not to be ignored.

Thanks, I was thinking along those lines, but wanted to be certain.

Try using compact or map layout on this case
Or buy a new phone with a larger display? Say yes, so I can tell me wife I have to get a new one! ;)
