A New Service from AVN (VINE)
« on: October 02, 2014, 09:00:15 AM »
(I received this email yesterday - I thought I should share it, in case some of you don't know about the new service!)

Dear Registrant,

You are receiving this email informing you of an additional free service because you have registered for notification(s) of changes in an offender's status.

This is not a notification about any change in offender custody. You do not need to re-register to receive information on the offender.

This email is to inform you that the automated victim notification service has become available in a mobile app. This is a free app easily downloaded on the iPhone or Android links below.

Download from iTunes 
 https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/vinemobile/id625472495?mt=8?elqTrack=true&mkt_tok=3RkMMJWWfF9wsRonuajLZKXonjHpfsX57eUrXqGg38431UFwdcjKPmjr1YIBRcZ0aPyQAgobGp5I5FEMT7jYWqJit6YKWg%3D%3D

Download from Google play

VINEmobile offers convenience to:

I downloaded the app, and it appears to work (there have been no changes in R's status so not positive) But it did show his current status. However I have found that the app tends to move rather slow.  Just my 2 cents! :)
The thought of being with you tomorrow, gives me the strength to go on today.

If he is moved I'll get the email which I have on my phone anyway.

I had the app on my phone for awhile now and deleted it a week ago, just wanted to see what it was all about.

I received that email notice, too.  I didn't download it - I was wondering what else the app had to offer that the email notification wouldn't provide.  Mah - if you downloaded it for awhile, were there any other features?  Guess I could look myself, but I'm being lazy.

I'm glad you mentioned this.  I checked my email for it, and sure enough, it went to my junkmail.  The notifications for transfers likely would have too.   :wc38:

Hmm...is there a different app?  I've been using the Vine app on my iPhone since my son was moved from county in April

I don't know - didn't know there was an app until I received the email yesterday.

I had signed up for email and phone 3 years ago.

It's the same one, I have had it awhile, didn't use it so took it off.

Oh okay - I've had the app and the way I requested to be notified was by text.

Wasn't 100% certain, but can the vine be used for anyone. Or just the victims? this is both of our first time.

Just remember your pin number if you sign up for phone alerts. It will keep calling over and over.

Maybe you didn't receive anything because he really didn't move out of the prison, just into a different section.

I haven't been on here in awhile. I didn't know they had an app. My l/o just found out he was approved for his transfer finally after being denied 3 times.
