    Hide your iPhones, hide your Androids, hide your smartphones. They're apping everything up in here.

    Antoine Dodson  -- yes, that Antoine Dodson, of “Bed Intruder Song” and viral video fame -- has found a new gig working as a pitchman for an "augmented-reality" iPhone app that can help you find nearby sex offenders.

    For $1.99, the sex offender tracker app will show you the location of any sex offender location over a video of your surroundings.

    "That's really him," said Ross Cohen to Business Insider, whose company, BeenVerified, powers the app. "We flew him into NY to do a full day shoot. He's actually an amazing guy and very sincere about helping people. He loved that RAINN.org was involved and they are both taking the relationship past our introduction."

    BeenVerified will donate 5 percent of the sales of the app will go to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN)
