[prMac.com] Rancho Santa Margarita, California - Bowers Technologies, Inc. today introduces Crime Stats 1.0, their new crime statistics inquiry application for iPhone and iPod Touch. Designed specifically to leverage the iPhone's unique abilities, Crime Stats serves to empower people by providing them detailed crime information about more than 8,700 cities within the United States. More importantly, the crime statistics are ranked in relation to the rest of the nation. This allows users to see how see how a city compares to the national average for each of the various crime categories.
Imagine driving down the highway at night and you notice the gas gauge is very low. You are on vacation and have never been in this part of the state before. Looking at a passing sign you see that there are only two cities nearby. Your spouse pulls out the iPhone and launches Crime Stats. Within a few seconds you are able to pull up a side by side comparison of the crime statistics for the two cities. Smiling to each other, you drive past the nearest city and exit a few miles up the road to get fuel and snacks.
* Ranks each crime category according to the national average

* Look up a city using your current location (iPhone GPS) or by searching by name (iPod & iPhone)

* Extremely easy to use interface that only takes seconds to pull up information
