I’m only interested in my own area, but I’m getting notices from other states when I open my phone.
Do not click!
by USMC6675 on 2021/09/11 13:28
States it will give you a three day free trial but then instantly charges you $40. This app does nothing more than any of the free versions on the App Store I would not download this. SCAM!
Huge Disappointment
by NinthNicknameIveTried on 2021/09/07 03:54
I just downloaded this and was listening to my local feed for almost 15 minutes and hadn’t heard anything. A voice finally came on and immediately an ad started playing stupidly loud over it. By the time the ad stopped, so did the voice. Seriously, is that how you get your money? What a waste.
Not a reliable app!
by PedroW25 on 2021/08/28 12:15
Not working when you want it most.
No alerts
by MrsJaxson910 on 2021/08/28 11:38
I downloaded this yesterday and no matter what I tried to pull up it said no news. Just so happens someone was driving around my area randomly shooting at people last night and I got no alert on that either. Very disappointed. This would’ve been very informative.
Upset
by 2thebeach on 2021/08/28 10:00
I accidentally signed up for a year and it’s $40!!! Yes it’s my fault I didn’t read the message correctly but a year shouldn’t be the default. A month should have been but I guess this lets you take people for the maximum amount. It doesn’t even have the channel for the immediate area where I live. Update August: Since I paid for a year I have been using it and now it stopped working. It can’t find anything anywhere. Please get it working again so my money wasn’t completely wasted. Thank you
Not reliable
by Robmon on 2021/08/27 14:28
First time I was relying on the scanner the scanner went offline and has stayed offline for the past three days.
Charged without trial period
by mrod298 on 2021/08/25 07:31
I downloaded the app and was surprised to see you needed a subscription. It offered a free 3 day trial before billing. Less than an hour later I checked my bank account and noticed it had immediately billed me for the year subscription without any trial period. The app doesn’t even work well in my location. It would work for a min then go silent. The app was shutting down repeatedly. I now have to wait for an email response to get refunded and then who knows when it actually makes it back in my bank account.

Stole my money.
by 08212002 on 2021/08/23 16:32
I got this app on my phone out of curiosity and got the free subscription. I canceled it after and found out yesterday I was still apparently subscribed. So I canceled it yet again and this morning found out this app with free 40 dollars out of my bank. I am livid and needed that money. It was an alright app, but this is ridiculous.
Don’t work

Police scanner does not work
It works well
by Jeden12000 on 2021/08/19 22:18
When I first started using it, it would show the department making the call. It would say scanning when no one was talking. I thought that was better as it encourages me to look at the screen more and see your ads. I would like to encourage you to change it back to that.
Be safe and thanks!
by Purrrrme2u on 2021/08/18 23:13
This is a really nice way to listen to calls and how it works out. I am against defunding the police and I support all the police, sheriffs department, paramedics and so many other departments that help keep us safe. I feel bad for the police getting the short end of the stick but hopefully the powers that be, Will finally see the light and support our Frontline workers! 🙏🤗🥰

by Buffalo Billy D on 2021/07/18 22:26
This is a decent app. Although modern technology has police dispatched through computers. Radios are more for person to person transmission. Smaller police departments might still run radio for dispatch. I’m not familiar with that though.

Absolutely insane subscription fees
by DreamTheEndless on 2021/06/23 14:40
At the least expensive subscription rate, this app would cost $120 per year. That’s insane. Instantly deleted this app.

by Junkyard dog 12345 on 2021/06/09 17:59
I don’t know if there’s anything you can do to clean up how clear stuff comes a crossed and also make it easier to access 10 codes right on the screen with the voice trafficking so you can tell what’s being said and done
Charged for free trial
by rlynnt6 on 2021/06/09 05:40
I clicked to get the 3 day free trial and was INSTANTLY charged $39.99. This is a scam, where does the three days fee come from? I demand answers!

Definitely not worth it
by Girl Dad x 2 on 2021/06/05 17:24
Not worth the cost. Threads don't work. Excessive breaks in broadcast that prevent coherent informs content. I cancelled my subscription immediately after attempting to utilize the app. DO NOT WASTE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY!!!

Used to like this app. I moved to a new state just before Covid. I was using the scanner to get to know my city. Used to be able to hear both police and fire. Now it keeps saying the police are offline. I have reported this more than once and asked when it was going to be fixed. I get no response from these people. Just a thing saying they got my question and will get back to me. Been nearly a month since the first inquiry. No responses. Not impressed. I was going to pay to get rid of the ads but not now. Not impressed.
Loving it.
by K3vin59w on 2021/05/24 06:28
I listened to a “high speed” chase involving an RV Sunday morning at 8 am. It’s fun getting to hear what’s going on in the area. I also love the I can listen to different areas around the country.

You play with fire and it burns
by KimmieKaeSoCray on 2021/05/13 08:19
I definitely just got played. Not that I wasn’t trying to somewhat double dip on a 3 day trial. Instead of being told I had already used it and rejected; I was just charged 42$ for a subscription. Started listening in Boulder at my job watching emergency personnel fly by my job during the grocery store shooting. Im appalled. I love this app but I honestly didn’t have the 42$ to keep it long term. 🤦🏼‍♀️
Pay to listen
by Danni1418 on 2021/05/12 23:09
Would be better if I didn’t have to pay monthly to listen.
Charged for one year instead of free trial
by Chase0920 on 2021/05/09 21:12
Hi I recently downloaded the app and went to join for the few day free trial to test it, and for some reason it charged me for a year, it doesn’t have my county. I’m asking for a refund please. I just got it like 4 minutes ago.

Duh
by Tired of the hypes on 2021/05/03 21:58
Their is no coverage for my city. (Police). Just fire and EMS. What’s the point of having a scanner if it does NOT scan your police? DUH??? So I ordered a real scanner and am cancelling this toy.
Scam
by ArgyleFox on 2021/05/01 06:57
Downloaded this as there was a swat situation in my neighborhood. Used it once and tried free trial. Canceled it and was still billed 40$ for a year.

Annoying ads, too expensive
by Dimesandquarters on 2021/04/27 04:11
Just when you want to hear a pursuit or whatever, they play a 30-second ad that drowns out the scanner audio. To eliminate ads is really expensive. 5-0 Radio Pro has the same feeds, and is cheap. The only good thing about this app is it will notify you of interesting feeds.
5/0 there they go

I tried the 3 day free-trial. I searched and searched for a way to cancel before the 3 days were even up. It was nowhere to be found. I never signed up for the yearly subscription. Yet I woke up with a 40$ charge to my account. I have contacted you guys, and received no answers. I still can’t find anywhere to cancel or no other way to contact developer. Such a scam. 40$ a year is way too expensive when there are far less expensive out there

It’s not even showing that I have a subscription other than the 3 day free trial, which I had canceled right away. I want my money back, this is absolutely ridiculous!

This is the best app / police scanner I’ve used thus far . Keep up the good work, it’s very informative!
Fix it
by "Big line" on 2021/02/17 20:06
It needs to be simplified by putting favorites channels should be coming up before places I have no desire to listen to. Very complicated to navigate around the app definitely needs to be tweaked and made less complicated and the adds are to easy to accidentally hit on which sends you to them which is very annoying when your trying to navigate to your desired location on the scanner.
Scammers
by jtreghrsx on 2021/02/16 01:39
This app still took money from my account after I canceled the free trial AND deleted the app.

Really helpful during all the protests
by azn72calvin on 2020/06/28 09:17
When the protests were going on, this app showed up on my main page, and it’s been excellent to help me keep up to date with what’s going on. You can hear directly from police departments, and it’s quite insightful to know how they’re thinking. Also, the app itself is very intuitive and user friendly, and I even found this walkie talkie feature that allowed me to talk to other users about what’s going on around me. Overall, it’s an app that’s super relevant and useful for the times. Stay safe out there guys
Am I missing something?
by SLP 1988 on 2020/10/31 04:36
I really like this app. It works great and keeps me informed of what’s going on around me. I have had it a month now, and I am 99% sure I have the free version. I have double checked my accounts to make sure I haven’t been scammed because all these bad reviews have me worried! There are ads when you switch channels but nothing awful. I usually stay on the same channel anyways. So unless I’m missing something, I would definitely recommend!
Review
by Bobby21.1 on 2020/12/18 13:33
The app definitely pulls in the transmissions for the bands it is able to pick up. It would be much better if you could select X number to monitor at one time instead of only being able to listen to one band at a time. Many of these bands don’t have a lot of transmissions so you can go several minutes without hearing anything. Since many police departments have gone with a different digital technology, you are not able to listen to them as they are ‘private’ now. It does not appear the paid version of this app allows multiple bands to be scanned at one time but I could be wrong.
Be safe and thanks!

Too expensive, great app cheaper options elsewhere
by Zekers2021 on 2020/07/08 17:48
First let me start by saying I like this app, however I have been using another scanner with the exact same features, channels and layout for years at a much, much cheaper price. I would 100% purchase this app for $5 maybe even $10 for a onetime purchase, but $40 for a year?? You can purchase a lifetime subscription for an almost identical app (just search for scanners). Dev, come on. Why does this app warrant a $40 a year subscription? By no means am I trying to hate on this app, I’m just trying to be real.
It works well
by Jeden12000 on 2021/08/19 22:18
When I first started using it, it would show the department making the call. It would say scanning when no one was talking. I thought that was better as it encourages me to look at the screen more and see your ads. I would like to encourage you to change it back to that.
Excellent!
by Dm8907 on 2020/09/29 13:54
Excellent for keeping up with local PD and FD. To know what is happening locally in the moment is valuable information for citizens, and this app brings you that information. I’ve never had any issues with the app, and I’ve had it for about a year now. It also has weather bands so you be in the know on severe weather, too! Love it.
Great scanner app
by mruggiero414 on 2019/09/12 03:18
This is a great scanner app, it’s easy to search for your local channels and then add them to your favorites list for easy access to them again. It doesn’t lag and the ads aren’t disruptive to the streaming.. Definitely a well built app, and so far it hasn’t crashed, so keep up the good work!

by Mack530 on 2020/01/27 18:16
I have listen to a lot of police scanner’s but this is truly one of the best app I have found that is for my area, I am very glad that I had found this police scanner, I enjoy it and It keeps me in form of what is going on in my neighborhood and down my street, I thanks those who created this app
Good app to use
by khaliqbaqi on 2020/02/21 06:02
I honestly love this app I honestly give it 5 stars n honestly when y’all do the next update y’all let us see the actual location of the call with map system or copy paste it to where we could search it up or something like that honestly I give it 5 stars
Clear, easy and informative!
by PopinElise on 2021/01/20 05:31
This Scanner App is by far the best one I’ve ever used. It is educational and somewhat entertaining. It helps to know and hear the professional manner in which First Responders behave. I’ve been very impressed by the quality of sound and the strong signal I get in my county.
Upset
by 2thebeach on 2021/08/28 10:00
I accidentally signed up for a year and it’s $40!!! Yes it’s my fault I didn’t read the message correctly but a year shouldn’t be the default. A month should have been but I guess this lets you take people for the maximum amount. It doesn’t even have the channel for the immediate area where I live. Update August: Since I paid for a year I have been using it and now it stopped working. It can’t find anything anywhere. Please get it working again so my money wasn’t completely wasted. Thank you
I would like a refund
by jgsgfhfj on 2020/06/03 22:44
I tried this app out for the 3 day trial and canceled when I was suppose to. There was no actual cancel button but it said to stop using the app and remove the content from your phone in order to not be charged. So why did I just get a notification today saying that I was charged for a year subscription when I had already deleted your app after deciding I didn’t want it? I would like my money refunded to me ASAP because I followed your terms for the free trial. This was wrong.
You play with fire and it burns
by KimmieKaeSoCray on 2021/05/13 08:19
I definitely just got played. Not that I wasn’t trying to somewhat double dip on a 3 day trial. Instead of being told I had already used it and rejected; I was just charged 42$ for a subscription. Started listening in Boulder at my job watching emergency personnel fly by my job during the grocery store shooting. Im appalled. I love this app but I honestly didn’t have the 42$ to keep it long term. 🤦🏼‍♀️
Takes me back to my childhood
by Tntate2 on 2020/07/18 22:44
Growing up, my Dad was on the local rescue squad so he had the scanner on all night. It was fun to listen to the chatter until I fell asleep. This app is even better. Not only do I get the local information, I can listen in at different places around the country. Great app.
Clarity
by Junkyard dog 12345 on 2021/06/09 17:59
I don’t know if there’s anything you can do to clean up how clear stuff comes a crossed and also make it easier to access 10 codes right on the screen with the voice trafficking so you can tell what’s being said and done
Silent listening
by realbrooklynct on 2020/05/01 21:07
Great app thanks for allowing users to have such a great app for free now we can hear what’s going on in the country! Most of us don’t have a clue what’s happing in our world! Great app I will continue to tell all my friends and family about your app!!! Thank you
Censoring
by Dino0369 on 2020/10/29 03:06
Glad I did not purchase premium version, and never will. You guys keep taking the Philadelphia Police & NYPD radios offline during the riots and looting. You of course will say the rioters are using the app to make plans since they will know the next move by police. Not a good move. People should know what is happening in their neighborhoods. Instead, you cut them off. Taking a page from the old Soviet Union and Communist China. Then just remove your app all together if you are going to act like Control from 1984!
Thanks much needed service
by Mike Kovalchlk on 2020/12/02 13:06
I think that this wonderful way you are keeping the public informed on what is going on around us and it helps the community to be on the lookout for their areas’ and keep it going please thanks a lot.
NO OPT OUT OFFERED
by jdukediggler on 2021/01/13 05:27
This app does not have any way to opt out before the 3 day. I just downloaded it 30 minutes ago and clicked free trial and am ready to cancel before auto renew and there isn’t any place in settings or a place to create a log in to cancel and I DO NOT want to be stuck paying for this as I am ready to opt out and don’t want my money to be taken as so many other people have already had taken from them according to recent comments.
It’s a good app
by im sorryy on 2020/11/19 21:04
I just was clicking around and didn’t know that I clicked to report something I’m sorry I thought it would tell me more about when that certain thing would happen
Didn’t think it would work tbh
by 2483727162 on 2020/07/30 05:57
Honestly I didn’t think this would work after a glance but I was watching police wiz by my rv and I thought I give it ago a and to my surprise I could here everything they were saying!
Ads
by bcollies2 on 2021/03/22 03:21
I need to amend my review. I was very frustrated about the ads returning after paying for the pro version. Reached out to the developers and they helped me restore my purchase now I’m enjoying the app again Thank you.
Review
by JennaLee1025 on 2021/04/02 18:17
I tried the 3 day free-trial. I searched and searched for a way to cancel before the 3 days were even up. It was nowhere to be found. I never signed up for the yearly subscription. Yet I woke up with a 40$ charge to my account. I have contacted you guys, and received no answers. I still can’t find anywhere to cancel or no other way to contact developer. Such a scam. 40$ a year is way too expensive when there are far less expensive out there
Beyond scanning
by API of Colorado on 2019/11/01 05:10
Very professional scanner with major perks that differates anything else I’ve tried. Get live updates off line on your phone then except the call or just keep notified. This is anywhere at anytime in the United States. This huge. A little on the expensive side if you op to go with the pro plan, but you honestly get what you pay for. I am not opted in but still get the perks. I can only imagine what I would have if I did and plan too shortly. Really great scanner can’t express that enough. Ex-Lieutenant B.D. Hirak
Customize
by __mpj__ on 2020/09/13 04:17
The ability to choose favorite stations and have them available all on a separate page from the rest of the stations is great
Fix it
by "Big line" on 2021/02/17 20:06
It needs to be simplified by putting favorites channels should be coming up before places I have no desire to listen to. Very complicated to navigate around the app definitely needs to be tweaked and made less complicated and the adds are to easy to accidentally hit on which sends you to them which is very annoying when your trying to navigate to your desired location on the scanner.
Always there for you
by purple 77 on 2019/09/12 18:06
We Live in Indianapolis we’re crime is so bad it’s nice knowing what’s going on around you at all time thanks to the men and women that protect us while us Americans sleep sometime of the day night morning evening their on the beat

by Buffalo Billy D on 2021/07/18 22:26
This is a decent app. Although modern technology has police dispatched through computers. Radios are more for person to person transmission. Smaller police departments might still run radio for dispatch. I’m not familiar with that though.
Works perfect
by TW56789 on 2019/09/12 18:04
This app gives you the ability to listen to events as they happen in major cities around the country and beyond.
Is accurate, and up to date, and fast
by lieislife on 2020/12/10 19:37
This is just like my hand held radio, fast, timely, accurate. And has a wide range of comms to tune Into. I use all the time. Will recommend.
Won’t load
by jslaughterbeck1 on 2020/01/15 04:33
I love the app when it works, but all of a sudden it won’t load my local pd. Just says “scanner off line “ I bought it for local pd, but won’t work all of a sudden.
Deceptive promo
by WxKelle on 2020/12/07 13:09
Buyer be aware. I signed up for a 3-day trial, not knowing that it I was not eligible for it. The scanner I needed was not active so I immediately deleted the app and when I went to cancel the free trial I saw that I was charged the full amount. I spent no longer than one minute on this app and now they won’t give me a refund. I would have NEVER hit the button had I known that I wasn’t eligible for the free trial. Be aware!
I love this app
by iphone199303 on 2020/12/20 20:02
I thought this app would be fake but it’s actually real and I made a call to 911 and actually heard my call come thru I would really recommend this app to anyone
Annoying ads, too expensive
by Dimesandquarters on 2021/04/27 04:11
Just when you want to hear a pursuit or whatever, they play a 30-second ad that drowns out the scanner audio. To eliminate ads is really expensive. 5-0 Radio Pro has the same feeds, and is cheap. The only good thing about this app is it will notify you of interesting feeds.
Great resource to utilize
by Tweet257 on 2019/09/12 18:06
I’ve tried many apps and this is the first one that had my city. We are a little over 50k in population so it’s always hard to find one. Great app!!
Awesome upgrade
by vwritter on 2021/06/19 15:27
Very nice App., just upgraded from another similar concept from a different company. This is working much better and I give it thumbs up!
Loving it.
by K3vin59w on 2021/05/24 06:28
I listened to a “high speed” chase involving an RV Sunday morning at 8 am. It’s fun getting to hear what’s going on in the area. I also love the I can listen to different areas around the country.
Question...
by Brayden 26 on 2020/11/25 17:29
Let’s say there’s a one alarm fire like 3 miles away do I get that alert? I want to know where there’s a fire close by so I can film it so that’s what I want to know, or if there’s a good app where I can know where there’s a fire near me.
Pretty awful
by BigGing0 on 2020/06/19 01:38
This scanner automatically goes to another scanner near by when there’s a couple seconds of inactivity. So if the office is trying to get his bearings it will skip to something else before you hear what’s happening. It just keeps flipping from station to station. It’s like trying to watch tv with your grandfather who keeps changing the station.
Excellent App
by Jaci.Cristo on 2020/06/24 23:26
I would highly recommend Police Scanner, and was very pleased to find my rural OR town on the schedule. I use this app often. Thank you
Download if you like slot machine ads
by User 1 1 2 on 2020/10/21 22:33
This app is terrible and they are greedy with the ad exposure. You are almost guaranteed to be forced to watch a 15 second cheesy slot machine advertisement EVERY time you get an alert for activity and try to play a scanner channel. I recommend the other scanner apps for sure. This one is ridiculous. Oh, and it’s typically beyond delayed. This app is awful.
Question
by Yreeeeeeeeeeeeeeee on 2020/06/12 16:07
The app works well, but I have a question. Do the people on the radio know that you are there/can they hear you?
Feedback
by Java Kavari on 2021/04/23 15:46
Would be neat to see more app icons that or new ones to be honest the others kinda stink. Overall great app though.
I DONT LIVE IN PERU!!!
by Thisis aggravating on 2020/11/07 23:01
I live in Wisconsin. It gives me 4 different choices for the county I live in, and then the next “near by” choices are in Peru, then some from Texas, etc. I can search out for the near counties, but as I travel, it doesn’t change my near by choices. I keep getting alerts for locations all over the country, but not even a neighboring state, much less Wisconsin.
Huge Disappointment
by NinthNicknameIveTried on 2021/09/07 03:54
I just downloaded this and was listening to my local feed for almost 15 minutes and hadn’t heard anything. A voice finally came on and immediately an ad started playing stupidly loud over it. By the time the ad stopped, so did the voice. Seriously, is that how you get your money? What a waste.
So Cooooooolllllll
by tareq20 on 2019/09/12 20:53
This is awesome you can listen to any city police activity, great for people that want to be aware of what is going on in a neighborhood they might be thinking of moving to.

First time I was relying on the scanner the scanner went offline and has stayed offline for the past three days.
Charged without trial period
by mrod298 on 2021/08/25 07:31
I downloaded the app and was surprised to see you needed a subscription. It offered a free 3 day trial before billing. Less than an hour later I checked my bank account and noticed it had immediately billed me for the year subscription without any trial period. The app doesn’t even work well in my location. It would work for a min then go silent. The app was shutting down repeatedly. I now have to wait for an email response to get refunded and then who knows when it actually makes it back in my bank account.

I got this app on my phone out of curiosity and got the free subscription. I canceled it after and found out yesterday I was still apparently subscribed. So I canceled it yet again and this morning found out this app with free 40 dollars out of my bank. I am livid and needed that money. It was an alright app, but this is ridiculous.
Don’t work

Police scanner does not work
It works well
by Jeden12000 on 2021/08/19 22:18
When I first started using it, it would show the department making the call. It would say scanning when no one was talking. I thought that was better as it encourages me to look at the screen more and see your ads. I would like to encourage you to change it back to that.
Be safe and thanks!
by Purrrrme2u on 2021/08/18 23:13
This is a really nice way to listen to calls and how it works out. I am against defunding the police and I support all the police, sheriffs department, paramedics and so many other departments that help keep us safe. I feel bad for the police getting the short end of the stick but hopefully the powers that be, Will finally see the light and support our Frontline workers! 🙏🤗🥰

by Virgwid1 on 2021/05/24 12:10
Used to like this app. I moved to a new state just before Covid. I was using the scanner to get to know my city. Used to be able to hear both police and fire. Now it keeps saying the police are offline. I have reported this more than once and asked when it was going to be fixed. I get no response from these people. Just a thing saying they got my question and will get back to me. Been nearly a month since the first inquiry. No responses. Not impressed. I was going to pay to get rid of the ads but not now. Not impressed.
Loving it.

I definitely just got played. Not that I wasn’t trying to somewhat double dip on a 3 day trial. Instead of being told I had already used it and rejected; I was just charged 42$ for a subscription. Started listening in Boulder at my job watching emergency personnel fly by my job during the grocery store shooting. Im appalled. I love this app but I honestly didn’t have the 42$ to keep it long term. 🤦🏼‍♀️
Pay to listen
by Danni1418 on 2021/05/12 23:09
Would be better if I didn’t have to pay monthly to listen.
Charged for one year instead of free trial
by Chase0920 on 2021/05/09 21:12
Hi I recently downloaded the app and went to join for the few day free trial to test it, and for some reason it charged me for a year, it doesn’t have my county. I’m asking for a refund please. I just got it like 4 minutes ago.
Nothing to listen to...

Listening to crime in Redding
by secret gov files on 2021/05/07 00:15
I feel kinda bad for the police.
Duh
by Tired of the hypes on 2021/05/03 21:58
Their is no coverage for my city. (Police). Just fire and EMS. What’s the point of having a scanner if it does NOT scan your police? DUH??? So I ordered a real scanner and am cancelling this toy.
Scam
by ArgyleFox on 2021/05/01 06:57
Downloaded this as there was a swat situation in my neighborhood. Used it once and tried free trial. Canceled it and was still billed 40$ for a year.
Charged before the trail was up
by kayleanasmom on 2021/05/01 01:35
Do not do the free trail they just charged before my free trail was up. Charged 42.99

Annoying ads, too expensive
by Dimesandquarters on 2021/04/27 04:11
Just when you want to hear a pursuit or whatever, they play a 30-second ad that drowns out the scanner audio. To eliminate ads is really expensive. 5-0 Radio Pro has the same feeds, and is cheap. The only good thing about this app is it will notify you of interesting feeds.
5/0 there they go

Review
by JennaLee1025 on 2021/04/02 18:17
I tried the 3 day free-trial. I searched and searched for a way to cancel before the 3 days were even up. It was nowhere to be found. I never signed up for the yearly subscription. Yet I woke up with a 40$ charge to my account. I have contacted you guys, and received no answers. I still can’t find anywhere to cancel or no other way to contact developer. Such a scam. 40$ a year is way too expensive when there are far less expensive out there
Awesome app

I got charged $26.78 IMMEDIATELY after opting in for the 3 day free trial. I do not want this app! Why did it just charge me such an off the wall amount? It’s not even showing that I have a subscription other than the 3 day free trial, which I had canceled right away. I want my money back, this is absolutely ridiculous!

This is the best app / police scanner I’ve used thus far . Keep up the good work, it’s very informative!
Fix it
by "Big line" on 2021/02/17 20:06
It needs to be simplified by putting favorites channels should be coming up before places I have no desire to listen to. Very complicated to navigate around the app definitely needs to be tweaked and made less complicated and the adds are to easy to accidentally hit on which sends you to them which is very annoying when your trying to navigate to your desired location on the scanner.
Scammers

Really helpful during all the protests
by azn72calvin on 2020/06/28 09:17
When the protests were going on, this app showed up on my main page, and it’s been excellent to help me keep up to date with what’s going on. You can hear directly from police departments, and it’s quite insightful to know how they’re thinking. Also, the app itself is very intuitive and user friendly, and I even found this walkie talkie feature that allowed me to talk to other users about what’s going on around me. Overall, it’s an app that’s super relevant and useful for the times. Stay safe out there guys
Am I missing something?
by SLP 1988 on 2020/10/31 04:36
I really like this app. It works great and keeps me informed of what’s going on around me. I have had it a month now, and I am 99% sure I have the free version. I have double checked my accounts to make sure I haven’t been scammed because all these bad reviews have me worried! There are ads when you switch channels but nothing awful. I usually stay on the same channel anyways. So unless I’m missing something, I would definitely recommend!
Review
by Bobby21.1 on 2020/12/18 13:33
The app definitely pulls in the transmissions for the bands it is able to pick up. It would be much better if you could select X number to monitor at one time instead of only being able to listen to one band at a time. Many of these bands don’t have a lot of transmissions so you can go several minutes without hearing anything. Since many police departments have gone with a different digital technology, you are not able to listen to them as they are ‘private’ now. It does not appear the paid version of this app allows multiple bands to be scanned at one time but I could be wrong.
Be safe and thanks!
by Purrrrme2u on 2021/08/18 23:13
This is a really nice way to listen to calls and how it works out. I am against defunding the police and I support all the police, sheriffs department, paramedics and so many other departments that help keep us safe. I feel bad for the police getting the short end of the stick but hopefully the powers that be, Will finally see the light and support our Frontline workers! 🙏🤗🥰
Too expensive, great app cheaper options elsewhere
by Zekers2021 on 2020/07/08 17:48
First let me start by saying I like this app, however I have been using another scanner with the exact same features, channels and layout for years at a much, much cheaper price. I would 100% purchase this app for $5 maybe even $10 for a onetime purchase, but $40 for a year?? You can purchase a lifetime subscription for an almost identical app (just search for scanners). Dev, come on. Why does this app warrant a $40 a year subscription? By no means am I trying to hate on this app, I’m just trying to be real.
It works well
by Jeden12000 on 2021/08/19 22:18
When I first started using it, it would show the department making the call. It would say scanning when no one was talking. I thought that was better as it encourages me to look at the screen more and see your ads. I would like to encourage you to change it back to that.
Excellent!
by Dm8907 on 2020/09/29 13:54
Excellent for keeping up with local PD and FD. To know what is happening locally in the moment is valuable information for citizens, and this app brings you that information. I’ve never had any issues with the app, and I’ve had it for about a year now. It also has weather bands so you be in the know on severe weather, too! Love it.
Great scanner app
by mruggiero414 on 2019/09/12 03:18
This is a great scanner app, it’s easy to search for your local channels and then add them to your favorites list for easy access to them again. It doesn’t lag and the ads aren’t disruptive to the streaming.. Definitely a well built app, and so far it hasn’t crashed, so keep up the good work!
Charged without trial period
by mrod298 on 2021/08/25 07:31
I downloaded the app and was surprised to see you needed a subscription. It offered a free 3 day trial before billing. Less than an hour later I checked my bank account and noticed it had immediately billed me for the year subscription without any trial period. The app doesn’t even work well in my location. It would work for a min then go silent. The app was shutting down repeatedly. I now have to wait for an email response to get refunded and then who knows when it actually makes it back in my bank account.
Was good
by Virgwid1 on 2021/05/24 12:10
Used to like this app. I moved to a new state just before Covid. I was using the scanner to get to know my city. Used to be able to hear both police and fire. Now it keeps saying the police are offline. I have reported this more than once and asked when it was going to be fixed. I get no response from these people. Just a thing saying they got my question and will get back to me. Been nearly a month since the first inquiry. No responses. Not impressed. I was going to pay to get rid of the ads but not now. Not impressed.
Sheriff scanner

Good app to use
by khaliqbaqi on 2020/02/21 06:02
I honestly love this app I honestly give it 5 stars n honestly when y’all do the next update y’all let us see the actual location of the call with map system or copy paste it to where we could search it up or something like that honestly I give it 5 stars
Clear, easy and informative!
by PopinElise on 2021/01/20 05:31
This Scanner App is by far the best one I’ve ever used. It is educational and somewhat entertaining. It helps to know and hear the professional manner in which First Responders behave. I’ve been very impressed by the quality of sound and the strong signal I get in my county.
Upset
by 2thebeach on 2021/08/28 10:00
I accidentally signed up for a year and it’s $40!!! Yes it’s my fault I didn’t read the message correctly but a year shouldn’t be the default. A month should have been but I guess this lets you take people for the maximum amount. It doesn’t even have the channel for the immediate area where I live. Update August: Since I paid for a year I have been using it and now it stopped working. It can’t find anything anywhere. Please get it working again so my money wasn’t completely wasted. Thank you
I would like a refund
by jgsgfhfj on 2020/06/03 22:44
I tried this app out for the 3 day trial and canceled when I was suppose to. There was no actual cancel button but it said to stop using the app and remove the content from your phone in order to not be charged. So why did I just get a notification today saying that I was charged for a year subscription when I had already deleted your app after deciding I didn’t want it? I would like my money refunded to me ASAP because I followed your terms for the free trial. This was wrong.
You play with fire and it burns
by KimmieKaeSoCray on 2021/05/13 08:19
I definitely just got played. Not that I wasn’t trying to somewhat double dip on a 3 day trial. Instead of being told I had already used it and rejected; I was just charged 42$ for a subscription. Started listening in Boulder at my job watching emergency personnel fly by my job during the grocery store shooting. Im appalled. I love this app but I honestly didn’t have the 42$ to keep it long term. 🤦🏼‍♀️
Takes me back to my childhood
by Tntate2 on 2020/07/18 22:44
Growing up, my Dad was on the local rescue squad so he had the scanner on all night. It was fun to listen to the chatter until I fell asleep. This app is even better. Not only do I get the local information, I can listen in at different places around the country. Great app.
Clarity
by Junkyard dog 12345 on 2021/06/09 17:59
I don’t know if there’s anything you can do to clean up how clear stuff comes a crossed and also make it easier to access 10 codes right on the screen with the voice trafficking so you can tell what’s being said and done
Silent listening
by realbrooklynct on 2020/05/01 21:07
Great app thanks for allowing users to have such a great app for free now we can hear what’s going on in the country! Most of us don’t have a clue what’s happing in our world! Great app I will continue to tell all my friends and family about your app!!! Thank you
Censoring
by Dino0369 on 2020/10/29 03:06
Glad I did not purchase premium version, and never will. You guys keep taking the Philadelphia Police & NYPD radios offline during the riots and looting. You of course will say the rioters are using the app to make plans since they will know the next move by police. Not a good move. People should know what is happening in their neighborhoods. Instead, you cut them off. Taking a page from the old Soviet Union and Communist China. Then just remove your app all together if you are going to act like Control from 1984!
Thanks much needed service
by Mike Kovalchlk on 2020/12/02 13:06

NO OPT OUT OFFERED
by jdukediggler on 2021/01/13 05:27
This app does not have any way to opt out before the 3 day. I just downloaded it 30 minutes ago and clicked free trial and am ready to cancel before auto renew and there isn’t any place in settings or a place to create a log in to cancel and I DO NOT want to be stuck paying for this as I am ready to opt out and don’t want my money to be taken as so many other people have already had taken from them according to recent comments.
It’s a good app

Beyond scanning
by API of Colorado on 2019/11/01 05:10
Very professional scanner with major perks that differates anything else I’ve tried. Get live updates off line on your phone then except the call or just keep notified. This is anywhere at anytime in the United States. This huge. A little on the expensive side if you op to go with the pro plan, but you honestly get what you pay for. I am not opted in but still get the perks. I can only imagine what I would have if I did and plan too shortly. Really great scanner can’t express that enough. Ex-Lieutenant B.D. Hirak

by Buffalo Billy D on 2021/07/18 22:26
This is a decent app. Although modern technology has police dispatched through computers. Radios are more for person to person transmission. Smaller police departments might still run radio for dispatch. I’m not familiar with that though.
Works perfect

Deceptive promo
by WxKelle on 2020/12/07 13:09
Buyer be aware. I signed up for a 3-day trial, not knowing that it I was not eligible for it. The scanner I needed was not active so I immediately deleted the app and when I went to cancel the free trial I saw that I was charged the full amount. I spent no longer than one minute on this app and now they won’t give me a refund. I would have NEVER hit the button had I known that I wasn’t eligible for the free trial. Be aware!
I love this app
by iphone199303 on 2020/12/20 20:02

I listened to a “high speed” chase involving an RV Sunday morning at 8 am. It’s fun getting to hear what’s going on in the area. I also love the I can listen to different areas around the country.
Question...
by Brayden 26 on 2020/11/25 17:29
Let’s say there’s a one alarm fire like 3 miles away do I get that alert? I want to know where there’s a fire close by so I can film it so that’s what I want to know, or if there’s a good app where I can know where there’s a fire near me.
Pretty awful
by BigGing0 on 2020/06/19 01:38
This scanner automatically goes to another scanner near by when there’s a couple seconds of inactivity. So if the office is trying to get his bearings it will skip to something else before you hear what’s happening. It just keeps flipping from station to station. It’s like trying to watch tv with your grandfather who keeps changing the station.
Excellent App
by Jaci.Cristo on 2020/06/24 23:26
I would highly recommend Police Scanner, and was very pleased to find my rural OR town on the schedule. I use this app often. Thank you
Download if you like slot machine ads
by User 1 1 2 on 2020/10/21 22:33
This app is terrible and they are greedy with the ad exposure. You are almost guaranteed to be forced to watch a 15 second cheesy slot machine advertisement EVERY time you get an alert for activity and try to play a scanner channel. I recommend the other scanner apps for sure. This one is ridiculous. Oh, and it’s typically beyond delayed. This app is awful.

I DONT LIVE IN PERU!!!
by Thisis aggravating on 2020/11/07 23:01
I live in Wisconsin. It gives me 4 different choices for the county I live in, and then the next “near by” choices are in Peru, then some from Texas, etc. I can search out for the near counties, but as I travel, it doesn’t change my near by choices. I keep getting alerts for locations all over the country, but not even a neighboring state, much less Wisconsin.
Huge Disappointment
by NinthNicknameIveTried on 2021/09/07 03:54
I just downloaded this and was listening to my local feed for almost 15 minutes and hadn’t heard anything. A voice finally came on and immediately an ad started playing stupidly loud over it. By the time the ad stopped, so did the voice. Seriously, is that how you get your money? What a waste.
So Cooooooolllllll
by tareq20 on 2019/09/12 20:53
