"Sex offender tracker" phone app

(WFLX) - Parents can now turn to their cell phones to help steer their children away from sex-offenders.

It's as simple as downloading an application called the "sex offender tracker".

It links online registries to the iPhone and Droid cell phones.

But, just like the police registries, it only pinpoints offenders who have registered their address with law enforcement.
