There aren’t many men out there who haven’t at some point fantasised about being a private investigator. Even though cinema has generally portrayed these people as loners who are doomed to die at the hands of a femme fatale, there is something infinitely appealing about the idea of going to the scene of a grisly crime and meticulously piecing together the evidence to build up a case.

Sadly, iCrimeFighter doesn’t guarantee this lifestyle for you, but it is nevertheless an extremely useful app for building a case of evidence about, well, anything really. The app is marketed as being designed ‘by cops, for cops’, and the option to use your GPS to map crime trends in certain areas attests to this.

But the fools that wrote up police-centric description have underestimated this app’s uses. Once you create a case, you can fill it out with photos, videos, notes and interviews, all instantly accessible from the main screen.

Say you want to build a case against your flatmate who never washes up after himself (I won’t pretend this is a random example). Create the case, record an interview with him, in which he’ll no doubt say that he does wash up, then over the course of a week gather up photographic evidence showing that he is indeed a filthy non-dish-washing bastard.

For those who aren’t complete pedants like myself, iCrimeFighter remains extremely useful. Maybe you’ve been in a car crash, and want to gather evidence for your insurance company, or you want to send an extensive list of housing faults to your landlord. After you’ve gathered everything you need for your case, you can e-mail it to yourself in one smart, formal package.

iCrimeFighter is an app that’s extremely handy to have in everyday life. Sure, it’s not every day that you have a car crash or need to compile a case about something, but this app is a great way of condensing the necessary information for when these frustrating events inevitably do happen. Perhaps CrimeFighter is too narrow a name for an app that’s useful to just about anyone.

Who Is It For:'Cop', according to the description, but in reality just about anyone.
