This application was inspired by a move to Southern California. While struggling to learn the city, the developer quickly realized that he had no idea which cities were generally "safer" than others. Sure, he knew that the few that were frequently mentioned in popular rap songs should probably be avoided, but what about lesser known cities like Tustin? Crime Aware provides the user with two modes: search based and location based. Search based allows the user to look up any major city in CA and find detailed crime information instantly. Location based will determine the users location and provide crime information about the CA city that they are currently in. Perfect for the traveler or those unfamiliar with a new part of California.
