‘Death App’ highlights accident blackspots and local murders – created in just eight hours
London, July 28th, 2011 – A new mobile app launched today allows people to find the location of recent deaths in their area. Both accident blackspots and recent murders can be found using their smartphone.
The ‘Death App’ offers a gruesome and macabre view of the local area, yet also provides helpful and potentially life-saving features. The app shows information on the deaths near to the user’s location and offers a comprehensive map of deaths, searchable by specific location and type.
The deaths can be filtered to find the deaths that are “Near You” or to show the type of death, either car accident or murder.
“We’ve created something that appeals to the public’s sense of morbid curiosity,” said Tod Pedler, CEO of MobileNationHQ. “However, the Death App also draws attention to accident blackspots – to help pedestrians and cyclists navigate the streets more safely.”
The app is free and is available to iPhone and Android users. To download it consumers need a QR code reading app installed on their iPhone or Android device.
