Using as a Police Scanner
I really enjoy this app! Have not delved beyond the police scanner yet, as that was main reason to use it. It works exactly as you would want for that. So many options! I live in a large city in CO and rest of my family live back in MI. This lets me not only know what is happening here in this huge city around me, but I can keep an ear out on my adult kids to👍🏼 Interesting how you learn that when police departments complain how underfunded they are, or under staffed, by hearing that on any given weekend, in any district, only 3-4 cars are on the late night shift, and complaint calls hold for over 24 hrs....you can understand the frustration from not only the people in the city, but very much so by the police who have to answer those insanely late response times! Last weekend Friday night, 2am, 4 different calls were held involving guns and knives simply because there was no one to respond! Yup. Sorry for the long story, but this app has actual learning value to it. 109% recommendation ✌🏽
Great Free App
I've owned a handheld digital scanner for years, and it was with me for much of my free time and always when I was in the car. Unfortunately it got knocked off a table and is not working. This app helps fill the gap pretty well. I like that I can listen to other areas from home and can tune in to home when traveling. I love that it has a timer that turns the app off if I fall asleep listening. I listen almost exclusively to law enforcement/fire. The one thing I do not like about the app is that more than one channel will run at a time. With City, County and Fire all going at the same time it is sometimes impossible to know what is happening. This is the next best thing to my handheld.
One of the best for free!
I shouldn't complain about the ads since it's free but they can be a pain. Sometimes the full screen ads won't allow you to X out of them. 95% of the time it works great though. It's nice to know what's going on around my neighborhood! Since the last iPhone update, I've been getting bumped off a lot! I'll play my game, which I've done several times in the past with no problems but now it's very annoying! Now I'm conflicted on my rating. Please fix! June 2017: Since my last post, I've learned that I have to update all my apps for this to work appropriately! I quits on me if I have anything pending. Also once you've established your station and if you can successfully "X" out of the ad, go the one page back, where you chose your station and then you can listen while doing other things on your phone without getting bumped off! I think leaving it on the clock page leaves it vulnerable to quitting! Now that I've figured all of this out, I can enjoy it! Thanks!
Interesting entertainment, plus has TONS of music stations
Happened across this on the App Store, and was like: “Oh yeah! That’s right! They have these thingies where you can listen in, to the police scanners”!! Had forgot these things existed LOL. Interesting to listen to. Your area, or anywhere else. Ironically, the next day, my neighbors were having a domestic issue.. I knew police had to have been called; & sure enough, I heard it.. So it’s definitely fascinating. Then I see there’s music stations worldwide, too!! Diff than my other platforms. I’m into electronic music, & the more unique styles of European deep house & minimal tech stations available for example, had me pretty dang excited! 3 stars for the tech issues, crashes, cutting out, etc., but other than that, it’s fun to clean house and listen to music, or to what’s going on in my city, crime-wise. Although I’m sure there are private, non-transmittable channels also used, it’s still cool to listen to occasionally.
A Great Source Of Music
I love this app. The police and fire scanner allows me to pick up channels from all over the world. If you are bilingual, you’ll love listening to transmissions in Spanish, German, Russian, or a seemingly endless string of others worldwide. I especially love the wide variety of available music genres. I can listen to music 24/7, if I want to, and the choices of genre lead me further to more options of the genre, including radio stations. My only displeasure involves the Calm Radio subscription commercials that air almost every time a music selection is finished playing. It’s akin to listening to public radio - you can’t get around them, unless you subscribe.
Live in a small town and rarely anything happens. However, had a few occasions where this app has come into play and helped tremendously. Had a flood where most of the town was knee deep in rushing river water and on another, a stolen car had been pulled over in town where the occupants began shooting at the police officer. The 3 suspects took off on foot and it felt like the whole world came down on top of our little town of 1200 people. The scanner kept us up on what was going on as it was happening and what part of the city they were looking so as I didn’t have to worry and grab my gun as well. Great app
Even though I am blind I find this app very easy to use. Navigation is fairly straightforward even while using my voice over app on my iPhone. I have some usable eyesight, but not enough to read small print. Even with this slight obstacle I find this app very easy to navigate. There is quite a variety of features as well as radio, and emergency broadcast stations to listen to. Very much enjoying the vintage art bell stations. Will definitely recommend this to my friends who enjoy radio, and local first responder frequency listening.
Public access to Application
I think it is great for the public to have access to this type of application. It not only enlighten the public, but could be an opportunity for public to provide information. It should never be used by public in a mischievous manner! I think it could enhance the public’s outlook and understanding of what the police department deals with on a daily basis. By listening to this dispatch, officers often don’t have all information needed to do their jobs, so the public’s cooperation is desperately needed!
It’s actually a great app. It’s not just great it’s freakin insane. It’s asome., I would love to see in time to come the state scanner channels mixed in with this app. But besides everything else, this app is really nice. I can actually know whats going on around town, and in emergency calls I can listen in before it comes out in the morning news,. Whoever made it possible, he or she or they are geniuses, heroes and I would give them a handshake cause it’s earned.
First and foremost, I am not an expert pert. Obviously, if I was my name needn't be shown giving review; it would be listed underneath ownership are designed almost identically to the other and to find one that meets all of the users needs while the others merely 'suffice'and the reasoning behind my endorsement this specific scanner because of two very different reasons once you begin your shopping and searching and comparing all the limited choices for an app that there isn't a wide range of options for the police scanner apps.
It’s ok, but....
The app is ok for what it is. However, I wish it were more of a scanner and would really scan. As it is, you pick a channel to listen to and that’s it, but while you’re listening to that one something may happen on the other one you’re not listening to right now. On a real scanner, it scans all channels programmed into it. As it scans all the channels programmed wherever the action is is where it goes to so you don’t miss it. So while one may be silent the next one may have a call and it’ll automatically go to whichever one picks up traffic first.
Interesting app, interface needs improvement
Like I said, interesting app. You will make what you will of what you hear. I see some people using it to fuel their paranoia, that's probably not the way to use it. The interface needs improvement though. It's not easy enough to navigate backwards. Sometimes you have to go through 4 or 5 steps just to get back to the home screen. I recommend adding a button that takes you back to the home screen from wherever you are.
Adds so many adds
I just don’t think candy crush adds should play right when you try to use an emergency app. That’s honest not cool. If you want an emergency app that’s not going to play adds multiple times before you can hear the scanner or use the app at all, than don’t buy this. Honestly just don’t download it at all. Nothing but adds and wasting time every single time no matter what when you try to open it just adds adds adds! Don’t down load it’s nothing but adds not even one star. Literally nothing but adds. Just stop with the adds I’m uninstalling this and I hate you! You made me late to hearing about a loved one dying in an accident!
Well worth it
this might seem like a shill or a plant but I have absolutely no connection to anyone involved with this product. When Bosco’s or whoever closed down in thus area a while back had real sales. I purchased an awesome scanner easily worth $150 for $25 & I loved it. It got lost or pinched during a move & I missed it terribly. This ain’t too shabby of a replacement, even the free version. Seriously, a great app.
Great Scanner App!
I have been using this app for quite a while now. I don't have one negative comment to make. I also love that I can record the feed I'm listening to. Keep up the great work and thank you!! P.S. For those of you who give a low rating because your area isn't available to listen to, it's not the apps fault! Some areas have made it so the public can't listen.
