Working hard on our next project: State-by-state rankings. If you could choose, what other data would you like to see? Thanks for your input!

This is the first I've heard of these issues, but it sounds like there might be location data problems.
The business data comes from google places. It's pretty good, but there are spots of imperfection.
We'd like to help you and confirm these issues, if you don't mind. Please contact support and let us know what device you have, and what OS version; and if you're willing, your general location so that we can look at the place data. This would be very helpful - Thank you.

Pinch the map to see a larger area, and scroll the map toward where you want to look and 4 out of 5 times it snaps back to where you were.

Thank you! We really appreciate it. Android is a maze of devices and compatibility issues, and we always need detailed feedback from android users.

I've been using it some so far and have not come across any real problems. For the record, I'm using an Android based HTC Desire C. One minor complaint would be that when viewing the map, you can't make the list of locations go away completely, as XD40sc mentioned. And the lack of results in my area, but that's not your fault.
The ranking would be an interesting tidbit of info.

And yet there are places in Virginia I can OC that I am not allowed to in North Carolina, so how come they get ranked #1? Oh, I see, it's a popularity contest based on how many folks choose to vote, as opposed to actual objective rankings. Sort of like "social media" *hack, spit*.
Still might be good for checking out places, but based on the lack of the website actually doing anything I think I'll wait for version 3.0 or so. Sort of like giving everybody else the chance to buy the newest gun behind the counter, find all the bugs, and let the manufacturer work out the kinks. I know someone has to be the beta tester; I'm just not up for the job.

Virginia is 8th in total ratings by the way
But Virginia does have the highest percentage of open carry ratings... 37% of total:
In time, as the total data grows, the rankings will become more meaningful.
To me, "I'll welcome and serve you but would slightly prefer you leave the gun at home" is the definition of "neutral." What else could "neutral" possibly mean? If that's "anti", then what do you call actually anti establishments – you know, those that will eject carriers? Super-anti?
Whatever. Your app. Do as you see fit. I ain't gonna rehash that issue.
What I will say is this is why I find others' appraisal of any situation of limited (if any) value. I guess I'm just not the social media type.
Its a good idea. Just make sure Hawaii is rated at the bottom of the list. right now it is a green OC state and should really be bright red with a skull and crossbones across it
No problems so far, on my Android-based Samsung Galaxy 3.
