A Little Disappointed..... I'm a long-time subscriber to BNN, and their service is great. However, the app isn't as efficient as getting the incidents over your phone via text messaging. The idea of getting your jobs like a "beeper," with a tone going off and the job appearing on your screen, seems to be missing. You have to essentially 'refresh' the app to bring up jobs. Otherwise, it's like refreshing the 'Drudge Report' during the day to get the latest headlines. Some people may like that, if they don't respond or act on a job coming in, and just want to know what's going on. But it's not good for me. The other thing is the inability to delete individual jobs from your screen. I've been told that the only way to delete one specific job (as opposed to all of them you receive over a period of time, i.e. "delete all") is to delete it on the screen, then log out from the app, and boot it back up again. Really not worth the effort for just one job. The ability to send and view pictures of incidents is not all that important to me, as I can see them by logging into the BNN service and view them there. With that, I will be reverting back to getting my incidents over the phone as text messages.
