Not so easy to navigate

Freedom to listen

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.

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.
Make sure you read everything
by PP2487 on 2021/01/18 18:34
I downloaded this and unknowingly signed up for a subscription that immediately took effect. It was $42 and is not eligible for a refund. It’s a waste of money when they are multiple FREE police scanner apps that do not trick you into a subscription you don’t want.

NO OPT OUT OFFERED

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.

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.
MALICIOUS SALES TACTICS

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!

Walkie-talkie is trash. App is not worth it. look for alternative
by TjAtlanta on 2020/12/06 03:15
Walkie-talkie is only for paid users. I heard little kids cursingAs well as adults. No one treats this app seriously. App is kind of clunky on iPhone 12 Max. All this company did what is take everything from broadcast.com and redistribute it. Is this really worth $40 a year no. Because you can go on the website and get it for no charge 24/7 365. Sorry app developers I know you bust your butt to make an app. Good luck you have a lot of trashy users that ruin it for everybody else.

I want my money back

Do not buy this app. I opened it ONCE and never used it again. When I was deleting the app (since simply not needing it) I showed me that I was subscribed for the yearly thing and charged 40 dollars??? Never agreed on any form of subscription or trial. I want my money back. Be aware.
Thanks much needed service

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.

Persistent upgrade prompt
by Chalupa6020 on 2020/11/01 05:54
I have had this app for 10 minutes, and well over 10 times, it has already prompted me to upgrade. The upgrade prompt blocks half the page I’m looking at. If I can’t even view the free version, how am I supposed to make a decision on if I want to upgrade or not. Removing app.

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!

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.

Meh... Low activity & search gets glitchy
by cpruitt75 on 2020/09/26 22:32
None of the emergency services in my region use this very much. There must be a lot of dispatches, other than the 20 or so brief one I hear after a day of tuning in (Federal Way, Seattle, & Thurston Co., WA). Looking into other scanner apps now. Maybe they use different channels than what is tuning in? Users should be able to search dispatch by zip code &/or name. Pushing for location info is not always welcomed & causes device glitches. Maybe a drop down menu so USERS can CHOOSE HOW they want to search instead of pushing automatic location search. *I do like the page that shows you primary regional codes - helpful as I listen (earned 2nd star).

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

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.
Sad
by 1pupouy on 2020/08/06 21:33
I thought it was a good app everything was working for a while and I was on everything I frequencies or every word I use is off-line all the time now I don’t understand why it’s off-line nobody gets back to you after you write them and you tell them and they get back to you wants anything I’ll get back to you after that Yep might be good but uninstalling it for me may be the way to go sad because I can’t listen to frequency I like to listen to because it’s always off-line for some reason and nobody seems to tell you why
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!
Sheriff scanner
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.
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.
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.
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
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!
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.
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
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.
Didn’t think it would work tbh

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

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
Works perfect

This app gives you the ability to listen to events as they happen in major cities around the country and beyond.

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.
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!
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!!
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.
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.
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
Excellent App

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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
Top scanner app
by noirblaq on 2020/06/02 02:27
This app is the truth! i’m listening to it now and it’s very clear and you can listen to it wherever you choose!
No way to cancel app
by fuzzbuckle on 2020/09/08 11:12
Could not cancel app - I have sent the developer a message requesting to cancel my subscription since there is no way to do so through the app - hoping to receive credit for the balance of my subscription- will update with result
Out of a lot of money for something I didn’t want!
by breek28 on 2020/05/06 07:11
First time iPhone user, and my two year old somehow got into this app and subscribed and charged my card 40 some dollars! Can not get ahold of anyone to get refund....and am so lost when it comes to iPhones ! My account went into the negative as if i can’t thank the corona virus for that too!
Best scanner app ever!
by Former Statesman reader on 2020/11/02 18:38
I’ve tried a lot of different apps. This one is by far the best one. I’m using the free version and it is more the sufficient for my needs.
Great product.

Make sure you read everything
by PP2487 on 2021/01/18 18:34
I downloaded this and unknowingly signed up for a subscription that immediately took effect. It was $42 and is not eligible for a refund. It’s a waste of money when they are multiple FREE police scanner apps that do not trick you into a subscription you don’t want.
Persistent upgrade prompt
by Chalupa6020 on 2020/11/01 05:54
I have had this app for 10 minutes, and well over 10 times, it has already prompted me to upgrade. The upgrade prompt blocks half the page I’m looking at. If I can’t even view the free version, how am I supposed to make a decision on if I want to upgrade or not. Removing app.

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.

Walkie-talkie is trash. App is not worth it. look for alternative
by TjAtlanta on 2020/12/06 03:15
Walkie-talkie is only for paid users. I heard little kids cursingAs well as adults. No one treats this app seriously. App is kind of clunky on iPhone 12 Max. All this company did what is take everything from broadcast.com and redistribute it. Is this really worth $40 a year no. Because you can go on the website and get it for no charge 24/7 365. Sorry app developers I know you bust your butt to make an app. Good luck you have a lot of trashy users that ruin it for everybody else.

How do you cancel?
by Black Mamba Shredder on 2020/12/03 16:36
I do not want this app & was tricked into a $29.99 subscription when I was trying to cancel right after downloading. There is no cancel button in this app! I want a refund please.
I want my money back
by LWMS on 2020/12/03 02:50
Do not buy this app. I opened it ONCE and never used it again. When I was deleting the app (since simply not needing it) I showed me that I was subscribed for the yearly thing and charged 40 dollars??? Never agreed on any form of subscription or trial. I want my money back. Be aware.
Thanks much needed service

by 1@chichi on 2020/12/01 16:54
I would like to cancel this subscription as I may have subscribed on accident. I have tried to find a contact number but there isn’t one listed. I don’t care to be paying for a subscription that I don’t need or want and definitely not for $42.19. Please contact me to resolve this issue. Thanks’ Chiitra Gilbreath

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.

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.

Persistent upgrade prompt
by Chalupa6020 on 2020/11/01 05:54
I have had this app for 10 minutes, and well over 10 times, it has already prompted me to upgrade. The upgrade prompt blocks half the page I’m looking at. If I can’t even view the free version, how am I supposed to make a decision on if I want to upgrade or not. Removing app.
Great.

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!

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!

Who do I need to contact to get my money back? I haven’t had this app in months and even cancelled my subscription but yet, today, my bank card was hit for $39.99 for this app!! I have contacted my bank to let them know it was a fraudulent hit on my account.

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.

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.

Meh... Low activity & search gets glitchy
by cpruitt75 on 2020/09/26 22:32
None of the emergency services in my region use this very much. There must be a lot of dispatches, other than the 20 or so brief one I hear after a day of tuning in (Federal Way, Seattle, & Thurston Co., WA). Looking into other scanner apps now. Maybe they use different channels than what is tuning in? Users should be able to search dispatch by zip code &/or name. Pushing for location info is not always welcomed & causes device glitches. Maybe a drop down menu so USERS can CHOOSE HOW they want to search instead of pushing automatic location search. *I do like the page that shows you primary regional codes - helpful as I listen (earned 2nd star).

Be forewarned, if you opt for the free trial, it is set to automatically purchase the full version in 3 days unless you disable subscriptions.
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

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.
Excellent!

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.
Sad
by 1pupouy on 2020/08/06 21:33
I thought it was a good app everything was working for a while and I was on everything I frequencies or every word I use is off-line all the time now I don’t understand why it’s off-line nobody gets back to you after you write them and you tell them and they get back to you wants anything I’ll get back to you after that Yep might be good but uninstalling it for me may be the way to go sad because I can’t listen to frequency I like to listen to because it’s always off-line for some reason and nobody seems to tell you why
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!

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.
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.
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.

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 "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.

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!

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.

by Chalupa6020 on 2020/11/01 05:54
I have had this app for 10 minutes, and well over 10 times, it has already prompted me to upgrade. The upgrade prompt blocks half the page I’m looking at. If I can’t even view the free version, how am I supposed to make a decision on if I want to upgrade or not. Removing app.
