There have been a number of cool Google Maps hacks, and while some are useful
, many are just for fun
. A new map-based application from the National Sex Offender Registry website familywatchdog.us
definitely falls into the useful category. The site already uses Google Maps to display sex offenders and, today, will launch a new service to enable parents to get the same maps of sex offenders via cell phone
The mobile app will be free to use, though your cell provider may very well charge you data fees for the privilege. This adds to the site's existing cell-based service which will send text messages about local sex offenders.
