Some iPhone apps tend to be a little on the useless side, like bacon frying or bum shaving instructions, but now there is an iPhone app that seems to be a little more useful -- and it will probably scare you a little, especially if you have kids.

The Offender Locator App tracks sex offenders in your area and provides a map of where they live. If you click on their pin drops on the map, a picture of the sex offender will show up, along with their address, date of birth and list of convictions.

The Offender Locator App uses the iPhone’s built-in GPS to find the registered sex offenders. You can also track sex offenders who live close by to friends and families if their addresses are saved in your iPhone. Stats for Criminal iPhone Trackers Trending: Older & Mild
