    Locate a pizza joint, your nearest emergency care, read reviews, and even see where your friends are at with a variety of apps. This Halloween, give yourself peace of mind with the Offender Locator app and know where registered sex offenders are residing with this free and paid version app. 

    "The offender locator is kind of like the first step in peace of mind – who's your neighbor," said ThinAir Wireless CEO Howard "Trip" Wakefield. "Our goal is really to allow parents to be aware of the different people that are just living right around the corner from them."

    The free version doesn't locate all offenders in the area and only allows for a limited number of uses within a given day, but for only $1.99 more you may give yourself more peace of mind. Download the app from Apple here

    It's also important to note that this app won't track the exact location of a sex offender, only where that sex offender resides. Regardless, this app may help give peace of mind to you and your children this Halloween.

    Don't want to spend the $1.99 on an app? Feel free to use Louisville's very own MetroMapper to pinpoint any sex offenders in your area.  

    Today's Tech Deal: Pick up a DROID Incredible FREE with 2 year agreementfrom Verizon via Wirefly. Shipping is free, but you may have to pay an activation fee.
