Scanner Alerts
by noraa105 on 2020/02/25 13:28
For over a month now I have not been getting notifications from this app. I still have my notification banner and everything in regards to that turned on. This also happened a little while back. I’m hoping this update will fix that but just wanted to let y’all know.
Horrible take over ads!!!

Not what was expected
by crimsonears on 2020/02/20 16:58
None of the local police communications have understandable audio. None of the major local events are reported. I can get better information via other sources. Would not recommend this app. Save your money.

Best App out here
by Sunshineludy on 2020/02/12 06:18
I have been using this app for 5 years maybe longer and paid for the upgrade ( by the way the other apps are over priced and you don’t get many areas) You have so many places and areas, even small towns. I can hear the Fire Department in my area and my scanner will pick it up fast. You can mange how many listeners before you receive notifications. You get weather alerts. It really is the best Police Scanner App.

I love that you can listen into what is happening around your area. And if you like me you listen to this to learn what to say in certain situations if you want to become a police officer in future time. I also enjoy the feature were you can see the tens code that is awesome. It would also be beneficial to add a military alphabet feature for the sake of people who have less experience so they know when a law enforcement officer is calling out a license plate or and ID. I hope this review encourages the developers to add in a military alphabet and I also hope it helps encourage you to download this app.

Exceeded my expectations - I got confused (I’m older than dirt) on how to set individual alerts and left not so good review - developer left a note and pointed me in the right direction in a very kind and non-condescending manner - Thanks so much - purchased the pro version with all the options! Very happy!
Total static on Chicago feeds!!
by Jude0001 on 2020/02/02 01:32
What happened to the Chicago feeds?? There is so much static on all channels I’ve had to stop listening to it. This app was a favorite and I’d recommend it to my friends. Not anymore!
Great to know what’s going on when you hear sirens!

I work traffic off duty and out of my regular area quite often-thanks to this app I can listen to radio traffic from pretty much and emergency services agency and know what’s going on around me. I’ve share it with coworkers and they also appreciate it. Worth buying.
Lovd this app
by wolfwhspers on 2020/01/31 17:59
I have used this add since it came out. I always listened to the Chicago district 10 scanner and apparently somethings up with it. I dont know if it the app or the scanner itself, in any case I still have many scanners to listen to. I absolutely love the alert option, I just wish you could maybe turn off some alerts like fire alerts. I get so many of those I thinking of not using that feature. So maybe being able to turn on or off alerts. Just a thought. Other then that I love it.
It’s got ups and downs
by ktuck99 on 2020/01/31 06:50
Keep having to exit out of app after about 15-20 minutes and every now and then have to uninstall and reinstall again because it stops working. And it’s really bad about breaking up so bad I can’t even make out what they say.
Crashing
by coloradomountainguy on 2020/01/30 22:13
App pauses randomly, whether connected to WiFi or mobile, have to go back in an restart. Features have reduces drastically from Android to Apple. Wish the paid subscription was transferable, I enjoyed recording audio. Lots of things that made this app better on android
Frequency Quality
by Allen Portman on 2020/01/30 21:48
First of all I do appreciate the service and the ease of utilizing! My only negative complaint is all of the departments I listen too, have really poor audible quality with some having underlying non-stop keyed-like static. Can’t listen long before becoming annoying.

by Kathleen Connell on 2020/01/11 06:50
I love the scanner app a lot. Lucky for me the community I live in is on here, whereas some other local police departments are not. I wish they were. But the free app has minimal ads and they’re only when one first turns it on. Also comes with a sleep timer, which is nice. If I leave it on while sleeping I have dreams that I am in the situation on the scanner, which is kind it fun in a way, but I wake up grinding my teeth. So I’d advise you use the sleep timer.

This is a very easy to use app. Free version comes with advertisements, but the ads are very unobtrusive and do not detract from user experience. Has a great variety of choices from police, fire, air control & more. Recommend LAPD “Hot Shot” frequency for pretty dramatic special operations including coordination between police helicopter & ground units. My son is a professional firefighter & EMT. I enjoy keeping the app playing in the background while he’s on duty. Makes it more fun to have a conversation about his work experiences when I’ve heard the radio traffic between dispatch, command, & his unit.

I also like the fact that it includes a 10 code list. Definitely suggest this app to anyone looking for a good scanner.

Used to be great
by Jakeconsig on 2019/02/02 08:42
I just wrote a long review on my other device a few weeks ago about how this was the greatest scanner app on the market. That has changed. The ads used to be simple and subtle, but now they take up the whole screen. Often times when you’re trying to load a scanner app time is of the essence. Waiting for a full screen ad to load is a huge inconvenience and delays our ability to monitor a current unfolding public safety situation. I just bought a paid version of a different app to replace this app after years of being a loyal user. Either get rid of the full screen ads (banner ads are totally fine) or give us a paid option. Until then, I’ll use a different app to get the exact same data streams.
Privacy Policy Concerns
by Eastmarch on 2019/03/09 02:14
Update: Thank you for replying and looking, as I obviously care about your app and didn't want to have privacy issues. I no longer see the specific references to indefinite data retention which is positive (although current legal language can be interpreted in many ways, "stored for as long as required by the purpose they have been collected for"). I hope the analytics and Unique Device ID will go away when ad removal is purchased. Previous: I've had this app for several years, it has the nicest interface of apps like this, I don't mind paying to remove ads. But, its privacy policy linked from its page on Apple is unnecessarily invasive at 7 pages: Geolocation & User location, Analytics usage data, Unique device indentifiers, and says that the data will be stored indefinitely. I don't want to be tracked forever by my location and unique device id. I wish the author would address this and remove these provisions. I'm paying to remove ads, I don't want to be a product tracked forever, and it's inspiring me to do without it altogether.
Best scanner app in the App Store, period
by TCapple on 2019/06/12 00:59
I’ve tried dozens, and no other scanner app compares. There still room for improvement, and some features that I don’t understand why nobody ads. For example, let’s create a Scanner app that actually lets us scan multiple channels… I don’t see any technical reason why you couldn’t monitor two or more at once. That said, I’m giving it five stars because of how it compares to all of the other apps in the store. Not holding back because of the new features that I’d like to see. This developer has been rolling out updates frequently, the user interface is already the best there is, and I hope to see more and more updates going forward.
Great App, but....
by Nick Doll on 2019/02/07 16:45
Developer, I have had a paid subscription to this app for years. Ever since the recent update to the format it now shows ads. Even if I click the "remove ads" button it will say"restore purchases" when I do this it says "purchases restored" but nothing happens. Still ads, and still says remove ads in the upper right hand corner. What's going on? Use this app literally every night for the past 7 years. Until the purchase issue is corrected it gets one star. Developed stated in another comment that he never offered this app for purchase which is a lie. Numerous people have complained that they already purchased the app. Also, I purchased the app on an iPhone which he stated was not possible. No clue what's going on here but I'm going to have to go elsewhere. Something's not right. Making people buy the app within the app versus through the app store is very fishy if not greedy.
Alert Filtering Enhancement
by FlyboyJMH on 2019/10/15 14:17
The app is a great scanner listening tool. Works well and is very stable. I have used several different scanner apps and this is now my go-to app. In particular I love the alert functionality! I do have an enhancement request/suggestion. Please consider adding the ability to filter alerts, possibly to restrict alerts by country (ie US only) and also the ability to hide certain feed alerts. With no disrespect to the feed provider, I really am not personally interested in receiving alerts for Elko, NV twenty times a day. I certainly respect the providers zeal and passion but not being anywhere near there, I really don’t need to know about every minor event. Thank you!
Police scanner~brief review
by RandelllMalavida!!! on 2019/03/22 06:34
The San Mateo Law Enforcement frequency on this scanner is a great way to stay informed in nearly real-time communication of the events that transpire outside our walls and in the community 24/7 that are handled by the Men & Women charged with safety. crime prevention and so much more. It doesn’t take too long to learn the codes and phonetic alphabet so understanding what is happening outside, becomes like looking through a window at what life’s drama impacts so many lives being played out in our streets. It can be tragic, sad, comical and most of all it is the reality of the on duty professional voices, those Officers whom face fearlessly into the abyss everyday. It can become addicting and I love it. Randy Chavez
Still the best but wish I could test the themes
by Benjamin from CA on 2019/06/06 20:04
Out of all the scanner applications I have tried this one is still the best. A big thank you to the developer for making the recent updates. I chose to purchase the option to remove ads once it became available and now I see there is also an option to purchase the ability to change the theme. I do wish there was a way that we could try the themes before we commit to the purchase. I am visually impaired and believe the black theme may be of benefit but don’t want to waste the money if it does not end up being that way. Even if only a 24 hour test run it would be nice.
Scanner Radio overview
by wibbage on 2019/02/17 22:59
Fast access into breaking news national headline stories from the front lines. When you listen to alerts, you have a front row seat as police arrive and set up perimeters and search. You’ll hear them discuss how to deal with media and where to set up news interview posts and how the strategically plan to search for shooters. I was alerted to the tragic shootings in Las Vegas, Pittsburgh and at the country dance hall in Northern California. I over heard a pilot of a major airline on landing approach to Tampa International airport radio the control tower that he “just hit birds.” Excellent quality overall but depends on the monitoring source.

Eventually Gordon the developer and I began emailing (he’s extremely responsive!) and eventually I deleted and re-downloaded the app over the course of a month or so along with some troubleshooting. The latest download cleared the problem on my IPhoneX. This may very well have been a corrupted file on my own device all along. Regardless. Can’t recommend this enough. Great app and great support! Earlier post from May: For years this was my go to app. Having come from first law enforcement and now own a media company for past 15 years. This would always notify me of something happening anywhere in the country if the listeners met a certain threshold. It no longer does that as before. You can manually go in and look. But it’s not automatic. Still decent for manual listening. But the loss of auto notify is a big disappointment.
Get over the ads!
by Cman99 on 2019/02/07 19:45
They are ads, get over it. You click the scanner you want, and it loads. You get out of the app and you can listen all day long. Heaven forbid you have to see one or two ads. Would you rather the app just got taken off the App Store? This is the Be app ever. So simple and the most accurate. Wish you could select specific channels (like which specific police dpt or fire dpt within the county) that way you don’t hear only parts of the transmissions, but I’m sure that is due to who is broadcasting. Thanks for the great app!!
Lovd this app
by wolfwhspers on 2020/01/31 17:59
I have used this add since it came out. I always listened to the Chicago district 10 scanner and apparently somethings up with it. I dont know if it the app or the scanner itself, in any case I still have many scanners to listen to. I absolutely love the alert option, I just wish you could maybe turn off some alerts like fire alerts. I get so many of those I thinking of not using that feature. So maybe being able to turn on or off alerts. Just a thought. Other then that I love it.
Sad payed user
by Neiljess1998 on 2019/02/08 04:58
I’ve use the scanner Radio pro for years now about a week back ads started popping up and the remove ads button won’t let me restore used to be a 5 star app. I see that a lot of people had the same problem. You keep saying that you must of purchased from a different developer but this is the app the orange icon and mine used to say pro in the bottom right hand corner. Well last night I sent my 2.99 to Broadcastify pro because in not going to double pay for a app!
A must-have for travelers!
by JeepGyrl68 on 2019/06/15 19:56
As an over the road truck driver, I find this app to be indispensable in routing myself around traffic jams due to accidents or other incidents such as the shootings in Las Vegas that I was less than 15 miles away from when they happened... A few things that would be helpful if it is possible to implement would be: 1- In the broadcastify alerts, if the abbreviation for the state could be included. That way, depending on my route, I could determine whether it will impact me or not. 2- If there were a way to actually add my routing using major freeways, so that those came up as a ‘special alert’ then I could again, determine if a route change was in order. Also, I did not see a way to contact the developer from within the app, unless I missed it..? Overall, this app is my go-to to keep track of all of the areas where my loved ones live, as well as wherever I travel and I don’t know what I would do without it!
I too purchased this app...
by egirlpitch on 2019/03/28 17:40
*Edited* went back & found my receipt. It was the same app but the name was scanner911 so the name has changed. That's why it won't find out past purchases I love this application and paid for the full upgrade years ago specify for the option to get notifications when "so" many people were listening at once. It wants me to pay again. I'm confused that you say there was never an option to upgrade. Are you the original developer or did you aquire it?
Works perfect!
by JeffreyEinkorn on 2019/12/16 08:25
I love this app! It has its moments just like any other app. But as long as you live in a city that it covers, its worth the few bucks to upgrade if you like listening to what’s really going on rather then what the local news lies to you about. I listen to it a lot while I’m at work since I have a wife and little one’s. Just in case something is happening close to where they are, I can warn them, and hopefully keep them safe and out of harms way.
Not receiving notification
by Tina D 117 on 2019/08/01 22:29
I’ve had notifications set for this app for both local and worldwide alerts once a scanner was over a certain amount of listeners. I know if 4000 people are listening to a scanner, something major is going on. I don’t remember when, but it’s been quite a while since I’ve received alerts. Is there something I’m missing? I’ve checked my phone settings, and alerts are enabled as they are in the app. I really like the app & like being in the know. Thanks PS I didn’t know of any other way of getting in touch.
Works great, but could use an Apple Watch app!
by creepperklr2 on 2019/12/07 03:09
The app works as expected, very useful, when you can understand what people are saying on the scanner. Definitely useful when I know something big is going down. Now, why doesn’t something simple like this have some Apple Watch functionality? I mean start with the basics first of course, but any chance we could see an Apple Watch extension? I’m not expecting this review to get any traction, but hey, maybe I’m wrong, and this will get the attention of the devs. Hope to hear something about it!
Removal of Ads
by #TiredOfPaying on 2019/07/26 05:05
UPDATE: Developer sent me the fix for my problem. I’m back to no ads!! 😊 It works great. My complaint isn’t about the functioning of the app. My problem is with ad removal process. My new phone will be the third time I’ve switched phones since I’ve had this app. I’ve had it for many years. I’ve paid to remove ads twice now, and I don’t think you should have to paid every time you switch devices. I find it a bit ridiculous. I know it’s only a few dollars, but imagine if you had to repurchase everything on your phone every time you switched devices.
Reup
by Schef Marcus on 2019/08/22 14:02
This is in response to the dev response to my original comment (follow that?). I purchased this app Sept. of 2013. I know I did because I just moved into my apt. in Chatsworth and realized I was using your app almost everyday, and as I sit there, setting up my new apt., w/no tv and no internet, listening to the app as my only form of entertainment, I wanted to show my appreciation and give the developers some money. So don’t tell me you’ve never made a “pro” (paid version); just admit you’re wrong and move on. And by the way: no, I haven’t noticed any changes because I deleted the app. I don’t appreciate having ads, whether they are visual or vocal, they are not needed and annoying, ESPECIALLY when I already paid for the app!
Grandma
by gayleelaine on 2019/10/18 09:12
I was so excited when I found out I had a police scanner on my phone because I find police work intriguing however it’s very hard to understand what you’re saying and it sounds like sometimes two or three radios are talking at the same time I heard the cuckoo club which I recognize in El Cajon but most of it I didn’t follow Along because it was really hard to understand what they were saying but I’m glad I have a police scanner that’s awesome
This is the best!!!
by Dunabow on 2019/04/13 17:52
I see a lot of negative comments so I wanted to chime in. I’ve used this developers app for many years. It’s the best scanner app. Get over the adds. They deserve to be compensated. The developers also have to deal with the California Sheriff and Police switching to digital frequencies. This must get ironed out. It’s not the developers fault channels are no longer available. Google it. The sheriff explains its for officer safety. I hope this helps. I look forward to the future with this app.
Best App out here
by Sunshineludy on 2020/02/12 06:18
I have been using this app for 5 years maybe longer and paid for the upgrade ( by the way the other apps are over priced and you don’t get many areas) You have so many places and areas, even small towns. I can hear the Fire Department in my area and my scanner will pick it up fast. You can mange how many listeners before you receive notifications. You get weather alerts. It really is the best Police Scanner App.
Love the scanner app
by Kathleen Connell on 2020/01/11 06:50
I love the scanner app a lot. Lucky for me the community I live in is on here, whereas some other local police departments are not. I wish they were. But the free app has minimal ads and they’re only when one first turns it on. Also comes with a sleep timer, which is nice. If I leave it on while sleeping I have dreams that I am in the situation on the scanner, which is kind it fun in a way, but I wake up grinding my teeth. So I’d advise you use the sleep timer.

Saved me hundreds $$$
by Drew P. Cox on 2019/04/16 23:30
I was gonna buy a scanner for home but this app made it stupid simple to get exactly what I was looking for. The app does have advertisements but it does not interfere very much. Offers just about every city in the USA. Can run seamlessly in the background at the same time as other apps. Ex.(watching live police pursuit from helicopter view, while this app is letting me get the ground units point of view at the same time.) I love it! Saved me hundreds $$$!
Works well for me !
by Buddy the yellow lab's Mom on 2019/03/03 07:21
I’ve been using the app a little over a week and I find it very useful, Very informative and easy to use. My advice is don’t do anything to break the law because anyone who’s listening will hear your personal information! My only complaint is that some of the police and emergency personnel sometimes talk very fast or you can’t understand what they are saying but there’s nothing you can do about that.
Great app, but.
by Dirky87 on 2019/03/07 03:12
This is my favorite scanner app but there are a couple of bugs I would like to see get fixed. I am a scanner streamer and these are just a couple things I noticed. There is a major delay in the current listeners, it’s probably around a 10 minute delay from the actual Broadcastify sight. Also the alpha tags show up about 10 second before the agency actually talks. It’d be nice to see that get synced.
Police Scanner
by Herbie5-0 on 2019/02/10 18:24
I like this app and there are many jurisdictions available. It is quite addictive to listen to everything that is happening in my County. It is also evident that we have a very serious drug problem in this country in general based on the high number of overdose emergencies I have heard so far. One issue is that my local Police, Fire and EMS scanner goes offline and there seems to be no way to report it. The Fire and EMER is usually online but I personally prefer the police calls. I’m not sure if that has anything to do with the app itself.
App not working
by Win1958 on 2019/11/06 03:30
This as been my go to app for listening to what’s going on around my city. However the past few days it’s not working and always offline. I’ve deleted the app a few times and reinstalled the app only to still have the same problem. Update: I just gave this two stars because for the past few weeks the police scanner app has not been working properly, after five to ten minutes the scanner shuts off. Pretty sad because when I would like to buy the app something like this happens that I’ve always changed my mind.
Love this App
by vvfd343 on 2019/06/10 23:15
Overall this app is the best one no doubt. I did however more recently noticed that some of the channels that I listened to have disappeared (Baltimore County Police, Baltimore City Police). Now I know that agencies make changes. I was curious if that’s what has happened. I mean if it did no biggie. Just really enjoyed listening to them since I was from there. But besides that, there’s not another scanner app that I would download.
Ads don’t go away
by popuos kill this app on 2019/02/04 13:36
I have loved this app for a long time but the ads kept taking over my phone. Paid the $2.99 to remove ads and they persisted and even seemed to get more aggressive. Selecting restore purchase every time is a pain and does not seem to do anything other than say your purchase has been restored because the ads continue. I can no longer recommend this app.
This is the Scanner App you want!
by TheMiltonCrespo on 2019/01/30 11:43
I’ve been using this app for about 5-6 years and I go to say this is by far the best scanner app. Until very recently they’ve updated the look and having an iPhone X it was nice to see the app fit my phone screen instead of seeing those ugly black bars at the bottom and top of my phone. My only complaint has to be the lack of the ability to rewind and the ability view archives like you can do on the Broadcastify website. Maybe create a Scanner Pro version of the app with these abilities. I’d definitely buy it. Other than that I think it’s a great app. The 10 codes should be taken off though as police codes aren’t the same throughout the country. But nonetheless GREAT app. Hope to continue to see those frequent updates. Keep up the good work.
I like this app
by Captian_Cloudy on 2019/10/11 05:16
I have been using this for about a month and I just purchased the pro today. I am satisfied with this app overall it is solid. One thing I wish was optional is to have the ability to adjust the db and pitch of the incoming radio frequency. Sometimes it’s really hard to understand what’s coming through. I hope the developer sees this! Yes I still give it 5 stars 🙄
Ads?
by Becky959300 on 2019/02/06 04:59
I purchased this several years ago and suddenly about 2-3 days ago it’s showing ads. I clicked to remove ads then clicked restore purchase and it kept saying purchase restored but ads stayed. So then I did the update thinking it would fix it and now it’s saying no purchase found on my account. How do I fix this? I shouldn’t have to pay again, right?
Hands down BEST scanner app!!!
by Carmen4229 on 2019/02/04 06:36
This has always been my ‘go to’ scanner app to stay on top of everything in my local area, as well as distant locations. The alerts work well and the top 50 feed is great coverage for happenings nationwide. Loving all the cool updates & new features! I’m happy to pay $2.99 to remove ads and support development. Thank you for providing a reliable, top notch scanner app!
Best Ever Scanner App Besides My Regular Scanner
by TimWhiteRailProductions on 2019/08/23 19:22
This scanner app is so awesome and little bit better sometimes then my regular uniden scanner I use for my trains when I go railfanning they have so many awesome stations to listen to specially in your area your from I like it a lot and been using this app for many years now before I even had my regular scanner and had a camera so I like a lot
Doesn’t Have Options to Fix Problems
by clarabella92 on 2019/10/16 02:35
I have used this scanner app for about two years now. I go to piddle around on it tonight and it tells me “unable to connect”. I hit play and it still tells me “unable to connect”. Why? Where’s FAQs if I need them? Where is a service section? But most importantly, again, why? All of my other apps work, my WiFi is fully connected. It just doesn’t wanna connect I suppose. I have now downloaded another app. Hopefully it works better!
Great App
by Torch5462 on 2019/08/13 03:47
I’ve listened to scanners for years and this App makes it possible to listen all over the country without and massive antenna. I tested this app versus a home based scanner and it picked up every call that the home base model picked up. 1.99 to remove ads is a bargain. Only question is will the developer also include an opportunity to scan multiple channels in future updates. Thanks!!
The best scanner app on the market.
by micah 44 on 2019/11/26 17:36
I have gotten into listening to police scanners because I have friends who were police officers and it got me interested. This app was featured on Apple Vis, the most popular podcast covering blindness related tech demonstrations. That is how I found out about it. I have fallen in love with this app now. It is the best scanning app on the market. This is the most important app I own.
Remove the ads!
by blstz12 on 2019/02/05 14:10
I realize you need to make money, but the new ads are ridiculous. I am a volunteer emt. I used to use scanner radio when I got in my vehicle that doesn’t have a radio to respond to a call so I could hear what is going on, any updates. I use this app a lot! And the ads are annoying. I would pay the $2.99 to remove the ads, but there is no information on how often $2.99 is due. And did I mention I’m a volunteer? I don’t make any money being an emt and now one of the tools I use is no longer free to me. I am open to suggestions for another app I can use.
Great
by Dragonryo95 on 2019/02/05 23:50
So I’ve been using the new interface for a while and my mind is blown how far this app has come in a short time the creator is always been good with this app but they’ve out did themselves this time With the ease-of-use anybody can use this app right now good job I basically rely on your scanner app to get the information I need and I have never let me down.
Long time user, now pay to remove ads
by Slotnut2012 on 2019/01/31 19:25
Ok. I've been using this app for many many years. Recently, it went "pay to remove ads". I was originally salty about the change until I stopped and thought about it. It's a good app, and with the screen updates, it seems trivial to pay the roughly $5 for the developer to update. Good app, worth the cost.
Simply the Best
by Buttonsrocks on 2019/01/12 04:30
I have used your app for years. I used it on androids years ago and was elated to see that you brought to iPhone. Most recently I was also happy to see that it now supports the new screen sizes. There’s no reason to have any other scanner app. This one is simple to use and looks great and always functions perfectly. Thank you Gordon!
Still in Denial
by Spunky811 on 2019/10/19 17:15
I remember paying for a version of this app via Apple, 3 or more years ago. Developer denies ever making a pro version for Apple. Then what did I pay for and who got the money? Rather than find out from Apple, the developer gets snotty with people that paid for services. Did an imposter get the money? I thought Apple screened everyone. If the developer put half the effort into figuring out why so many of us say we paid but have nothing to show for it then he does calling us liars, we would have an answer by now. I think this guy learned customer relations from Comcast!
Why are ads back after purchase?
by SeaStories on 2019/02/07 00:00
I purchased the non-ad version about5-6 years ago but now the ads are back in full force and the restore purchase option doesn’t work. As far as the app, I have used it for years. It is good for the most part but the Virginia Beach station I listen to sounds terrible all of the time. It’s broken up and I miss a lot. Not sure if it’s the app or the way it is streamed but I don’t think it does it for some other stations.
It’s as good as the people who are involved
by Night5775 on 2019/03/01 20:57
All of these are simulcast scanners and are only as good as the scanner is to the tower. I’ve used in Connecticut where I was a Firefighter for 25 years and I now use it in Florida. Improvements would be listing individual cities covered in a county system but that is more on the person listing the scanner. Solid app but drains battery but might be not app.
Great but...
by shelly11111969 on 2019/10/02 02:06
I’ve always had this app, for years It’s been on every phone I’ve had. But lately certain places aren’t working, when it says there’s hundreds of listeners. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app, turned off my phone, gotten an update and still nothing. It’ll say it’s playing but absolutely no sound comes out, but other places work fine. I thought it was only my phone but my daughters phone is the same. It’ll say there’s hundreds of listeners, when I’m getting absolutely no sound.
Best scanner app and I’ve tried them all
by CurryMe on 2019/05/05 21:14
This app was okay for a long time, then at some point the owner started doing frequent and multiple updates and improvements. That has so greatly improved this app and it is now by far the best police scanner app based on Broadcastify available. Well done! Keep the improvements coming.
Adds are Recently Invasive
by MichaelOak on 2019/04/23 22:14
The app functions just fine. However, the adds are INVASIVE! They take up complete screens and many start playing sound right away. This is not cool, especially for volunteer firefighters who use the app to get critical information about calls. Missing the dispatch because some casino game advertisement popped up and started playing 70s porn music is not cool. I understand advertisements but they need to be less intrusive. If this is not fixed, I cannot use the app any longer.

Scanner Alerts

For over a month now I have not been getting notifications from this app. I still have my notification banner and everything in regards to that turned on. This also happened a little while back. I’m hoping this update will fix that but just wanted to let y’all know.

Not what was expected
by crimsonears on 2020/02/20 16:58
None of the local police communications have understandable audio. None of the major local events are reported. I can get better information via other sources. Would not recommend this app. Save your money.

Best App out here
by Sunshineludy on 2020/02/12 06:18
I have been using this app for 5 years maybe longer and paid for the upgrade ( by the way the other apps are over priced and you don’t get many areas) You have so many places and areas, even small towns. I can hear the Fire Department in my area and my scanner will pick it up fast. You can mange how many listeners before you receive notifications. You get weather alerts. It really is the best Police Scanner App.

I love that you can listen into what is happening around your area. And if you like me you listen to this to learn what to say in certain situations if you want to become a police officer in future time. I also enjoy the feature were you can see the tens code that is awesome. It would also be beneficial to add a military alphabet feature for the sake of people who have less experience so they know when a law enforcement officer is calling out a license plate or and ID. I hope this review encourages the developers to add in a military alphabet and I also hope it helps encourage you to download this app.
Great app

Listening to O CFR which is a happening channel. However as busy as the county is why in the world would you add Orlando fd to the mix. Already taxing to follow a call but now OFD adds to the interference. Please separate them.

by OldNavyFartRetired on 2020/02/02 03:35
Exceeded my expectations - I got confused (I’m older than dirt) on how to set individual alerts and left not so good review - developer left a note and pointed me in the right direction in a very kind and non-condescending manner - Thanks so much - purchased the pro version with all the options! Very happy!
Total static on Chicago feeds!!
by Jude0001 on 2020/02/02 01:32
What happened to the Chicago feeds?? There is so much static on all channels I’ve had to stop listening to it. This app was a favorite and I’d recommend it to my friends. Not anymore!

by wolfwhspers on 2020/01/31 17:59
I have used this add since it came out. I always listened to the Chicago district 10 scanner and apparently somethings up with it. I dont know if it the app or the scanner itself, in any case I still have many scanners to listen to. I absolutely love the alert option, I just wish you could maybe turn off some alerts like fire alerts. I get so many of those I thinking of not using that feature. So maybe being able to turn on or off alerts. Just a thought. Other then that I love it.

Keep having to exit out of app after about 15-20 minutes and every now and then have to uninstall and reinstall again because it stops working. And it’s really bad about breaking up so bad I can’t even make out what they say.
Crashing

Frequency Quality
by Allen Portman on 2020/01/30 21:48
First of all I do appreciate the service and the ease of utilizing! My only negative complaint is all of the departments I listen too, have really poor audible quality with some having underlying non-stop keyed-like static. Can’t listen long before becoming annoying.

by Kathleen Connell on 2020/01/11 06:50
I love the scanner app a lot. Lucky for me the community I live in is on here, whereas some other local police departments are not. I wish they were. But the free app has minimal ads and they’re only when one first turns it on. Also comes with a sleep timer, which is nice. If I leave it on while sleeping I have dreams that I am in the situation on the scanner, which is kind it fun in a way, but I wake up grinding my teeth. So I’d advise you use the sleep timer.

by Tribe 72 on 2020/01/10 01:28
This is a very easy to use app. Free version comes with advertisements, but the ads are very unobtrusive and do not detract from user experience. Has a great variety of choices from police, fire, air control & more. Recommend LAPD “Hot Shot” frequency for pretty dramatic special operations including coordination between police helicopter & ground units. My son is a professional firefighter & EMT. I enjoy keeping the app playing in the background while he’s on duty. Makes it more fun to have a conversation about his work experiences when I’ve heard the radio traffic between dispatch, command, & his unit.

I also like the fact that it includes a 10 code list. Definitely suggest this app to anyone looking for a good scanner.

Used to be great
by Jakeconsig on 2019/02/02 08:42
I just wrote a long review on my other device a few weeks ago about how this was the greatest scanner app on the market. That has changed. The ads used to be simple and subtle, but now they take up the whole screen. Often times when you’re trying to load a scanner app time is of the essence. Waiting for a full screen ad to load is a huge inconvenience and delays our ability to monitor a current unfolding public safety situation. I just bought a paid version of a different app to replace this app after years of being a loyal user. Either get rid of the full screen ads (banner ads are totally fine) or give us a paid option. Until then, I’ll use a different app to get the exact same data streams.
Privacy Policy Concerns
by Eastmarch on 2019/03/09 02:14
Update: Thank you for replying and looking, as I obviously care about your app and didn't want to have privacy issues. I no longer see the specific references to indefinite data retention which is positive (although current legal language can be interpreted in many ways, "stored for as long as required by the purpose they have been collected for"). I hope the analytics and Unique Device ID will go away when ad removal is purchased. Previous: I've had this app for several years, it has the nicest interface of apps like this, I don't mind paying to remove ads. But, its privacy policy linked from its page on Apple is unnecessarily invasive at 7 pages: Geolocation & User location, Analytics usage data, Unique device indentifiers, and says that the data will be stored indefinitely. I don't want to be tracked forever by my location and unique device id. I wish the author would address this and remove these provisions. I'm paying to remove ads, I don't want to be a product tracked forever, and it's inspiring me to do without it altogether.
Best scanner app in the App Store, period
by TCapple on 2019/06/12 00:59
I’ve tried dozens, and no other scanner app compares. There still room for improvement, and some features that I don’t understand why nobody ads. For example, let’s create a Scanner app that actually lets us scan multiple channels… I don’t see any technical reason why you couldn’t monitor two or more at once. That said, I’m giving it five stars because of how it compares to all of the other apps in the store. Not holding back because of the new features that I’d like to see. This developer has been rolling out updates frequently, the user interface is already the best there is, and I hope to see more and more updates going forward.
Great App, but....
by Nick Doll on 2019/02/07 16:45
Developer, I have had a paid subscription to this app for years. Ever since the recent update to the format it now shows ads. Even if I click the "remove ads" button it will say"restore purchases" when I do this it says "purchases restored" but nothing happens. Still ads, and still says remove ads in the upper right hand corner. What's going on? Use this app literally every night for the past 7 years. Until the purchase issue is corrected it gets one star. Developed stated in another comment that he never offered this app for purchase which is a lie. Numerous people have complained that they already purchased the app. Also, I purchased the app on an iPhone which he stated was not possible. No clue what's going on here but I'm going to have to go elsewhere. Something's not right. Making people buy the app within the app versus through the app store is very fishy if not greedy.
Alert Filtering Enhancement
by FlyboyJMH on 2019/10/15 14:17
The app is a great scanner listening tool. Works well and is very stable. I have used several different scanner apps and this is now my go-to app. In particular I love the alert functionality! I do have an enhancement request/suggestion. Please consider adding the ability to filter alerts, possibly to restrict alerts by country (ie US only) and also the ability to hide certain feed alerts. With no disrespect to the feed provider, I really am not personally interested in receiving alerts for Elko, NV twenty times a day. I certainly respect the providers zeal and passion but not being anywhere near there, I really don’t need to know about every minor event. Thank you!
Police scanner~brief review
by RandelllMalavida!!! on 2019/03/22 06:34
The San Mateo Law Enforcement frequency on this scanner is a great way to stay informed in nearly real-time communication of the events that transpire outside our walls and in the community 24/7 that are handled by the Men & Women charged with safety. crime prevention and so much more. It doesn’t take too long to learn the codes and phonetic alphabet so understanding what is happening outside, becomes like looking through a window at what life’s drama impacts so many lives being played out in our streets. It can be tragic, sad, comical and most of all it is the reality of the on duty professional voices, those Officers whom face fearlessly into the abyss everyday. It can become addicting and I love it. Randy Chavez
Still the best but wish I could test the themes
by Benjamin from CA on 2019/06/06 20:04
Out of all the scanner applications I have tried this one is still the best. A big thank you to the developer for making the recent updates. I chose to purchase the option to remove ads once it became available and now I see there is also an option to purchase the ability to change the theme. I do wish there was a way that we could try the themes before we commit to the purchase. I am visually impaired and believe the black theme may be of benefit but don’t want to waste the money if it does not end up being that way. Even if only a 24 hour test run it would be nice.
Scanner Radio overview
by wibbage on 2019/02/17 22:59
Fast access into breaking news national headline stories from the front lines. When you listen to alerts, you have a front row seat as police arrive and set up perimeters and search. You’ll hear them discuss how to deal with media and where to set up news interview posts and how the strategically plan to search for shooters. I was alerted to the tragic shootings in Las Vegas, Pittsburgh and at the country dance hall in Northern California. I over heard a pilot of a major airline on landing approach to Tampa International airport radio the control tower that he “just hit birds.” Excellent quality overall but depends on the monitoring source.

UPDATE : Features Working! my goto App
by Tommy NCL on 2019/06/19 20:59
Back in May I talked about the app stopping working. I never could get the alerts to work. Eventually Gordon the developer and I began emailing (he’s extremely responsive!) and eventually I deleted and re-downloaded the app over the course of a month or so along with some troubleshooting. The latest download cleared the problem on my IPhoneX. This may very well have been a corrupted file on my own device all along. Regardless. Can’t recommend this enough. Great app and great support! Earlier post from May: For years this was my go to app. Having come from first law enforcement and now own a media company for past 15 years. This would always notify me of something happening anywhere in the country if the listeners met a certain threshold. It no longer does that as before. You can manually go in and look. But it’s not automatic. Still decent for manual listening. But the loss of auto notify is a big disappointment.
Get over the ads!
by Cman99 on 2019/02/07 19:45
They are ads, get over it. You click the scanner you want, and it loads. You get out of the app and you can listen all day long. Heaven forbid you have to see one or two ads. Would you rather the app just got taken off the App Store? This is the Be app ever. So simple and the most accurate. Wish you could select specific channels (like which specific police dpt or fire dpt within the county) that way you don’t hear only parts of the transmissions, but I’m sure that is due to who is broadcasting. Thanks for the great app!!

I’ve use the scanner Radio pro for years now about a week back ads started popping up and the remove ads button won’t let me restore used to be a 5 star app. I see that a lot of people had the same problem. You keep saying that you must of purchased from a different developer but this is the app the orange icon and mine used to say pro in the bottom right hand corner. Well last night I sent my 2.99 to Broadcastify pro because in not going to double pay for a app!
A must-have for travelers!
by JeepGyrl68 on 2019/06/15 19:56
As an over the road truck driver, I find this app to be indispensable in routing myself around traffic jams due to accidents or other incidents such as the shootings in Las Vegas that I was less than 15 miles away from when they happened... A few things that would be helpful if it is possible to implement would be: 1- In the broadcastify alerts, if the abbreviation for the state could be included. That way, depending on my route, I could determine whether it will impact me or not. 2- If there were a way to actually add my routing using major freeways, so that those came up as a ‘special alert’ then I could again, determine if a route change was in order. Also, I did not see a way to contact the developer from within the app, unless I missed it..? Overall, this app is my go-to to keep track of all of the areas where my loved ones live, as well as wherever I travel and I don’t know what I would do without it!
I too purchased this app...
by egirlpitch on 2019/03/28 17:40
*Edited* went back & found my receipt. It was the same app but the name was scanner911 so the name has changed. That's why it won't find out past purchases I love this application and paid for the full upgrade years ago specify for the option to get notifications when "so" many people were listening at once. It wants me to pay again. I'm confused that you say there was never an option to upgrade. Are you the original developer or did you aquire it?
Works perfect!
by JeffreyEinkorn on 2019/12/16 08:25
I love this app! It has its moments just like any other app. But as long as you live in a city that it covers, its worth the few bucks to upgrade if you like listening to what’s really going on rather then what the local news lies to you about. I listen to it a lot while I’m at work since I have a wife and little one’s. Just in case something is happening close to where they are, I can warn them, and hopefully keep them safe and out of harms way.
Not receiving notification
by Tina D 117 on 2019/08/01 22:29
I’ve had notifications set for this app for both local and worldwide alerts once a scanner was over a certain amount of listeners. I know if 4000 people are listening to a scanner, something major is going on. I don’t remember when, but it’s been quite a while since I’ve received alerts. Is there something I’m missing? I’ve checked my phone settings, and alerts are enabled as they are in the app. I really like the app & like being in the know. Thanks PS I didn’t know of any other way of getting in touch.
Works great, but could use an Apple Watch app!
by creepperklr2 on 2019/12/07 03:09
The app works as expected, very useful, when you can understand what people are saying on the scanner. Definitely useful when I know something big is going down. Now, why doesn’t something simple like this have some Apple Watch functionality? I mean start with the basics first of course, but any chance we could see an Apple Watch extension? I’m not expecting this review to get any traction, but hey, maybe I’m wrong, and this will get the attention of the devs. Hope to hear something about it!
Removal of Ads
by #TiredOfPaying on 2019/07/26 05:05
UPDATE: Developer sent me the fix for my problem. I’m back to no ads!! 😊 It works great. My complaint isn’t about the functioning of the app. My problem is with ad removal process. My new phone will be the third time I’ve switched phones since I’ve had this app. I’ve had it for many years. I’ve paid to remove ads twice now, and I don’t think you should have to paid every time you switch devices. I find it a bit ridiculous. I know it’s only a few dollars, but imagine if you had to repurchase everything on your phone every time you switched devices.

I know I did because I just moved into my apt. in Chatsworth and realized I was using your app almost everyday, and as I sit there, setting up my new apt., w/no tv and no internet, listening to the app as my only form of entertainment, I wanted to show my appreciation and give the developers some money. So don’t tell me you’ve never made a “pro” (paid version); just admit you’re wrong and move on. And by the way: no, I haven’t noticed any changes because I deleted the app. I don’t appreciate having ads, whether they are visual or vocal, they are not needed and annoying, ESPECIALLY when I already paid for the app!

I was so excited when I found out I had a police scanner on my phone because I find police work intriguing however it’s very hard to understand what you’re saying and it sounds like sometimes two or three radios are talking at the same time I heard the cuckoo club which I recognize in El Cajon but most of it I didn’t follow Along because it was really hard to understand what they were saying but I’m glad I have a police scanner that’s awesome
This is the best!!!
by Dunabow on 2019/04/13 17:52
I see a lot of negative comments so I wanted to chime in. I’ve used this developers app for many years. It’s the best scanner app. Get over the adds. They deserve to be compensated. The developers also have to deal with the California Sheriff and Police switching to digital frequencies. This must get ironed out. It’s not the developers fault channels are no longer available. Google it. The sheriff explains its for officer safety. I hope this helps. I look forward to the future with this app.
Best App out here
by Sunshineludy on 2020/02/12 06:18
I have been using this app for 5 years maybe longer and paid for the upgrade ( by the way the other apps are over priced and you don’t get many areas) You have so many places and areas, even small towns. I can hear the Fire Department in my area and my scanner will pick it up fast. You can mange how many listeners before you receive notifications. You get weather alerts. It really is the best Police Scanner App.
Love the scanner app
by Kathleen Connell on 2020/01/11 06:50
I love the scanner app a lot. Lucky for me the community I live in is on here, whereas some other local police departments are not. I wish they were. But the free app has minimal ads and they’re only when one first turns it on. Also comes with a sleep timer, which is nice. If I leave it on while sleeping I have dreams that I am in the situation on the scanner, which is kind it fun in a way, but I wake up grinding my teeth. So I’d advise you use the sleep timer.

Saved me hundreds $$$
by Drew P. Cox on 2019/04/16 23:30
I was gonna buy a scanner for home but this app made it stupid simple to get exactly what I was looking for. The app does have advertisements but it does not interfere very much. Offers just about every city in the USA. Can run seamlessly in the background at the same time as other apps. Ex.(watching live police pursuit from helicopter view, while this app is letting me get the ground units point of view at the same time.) I love it! Saved me hundreds $$$!
Works well for me !
by Buddy the yellow lab's Mom on 2019/03/03 07:21
I’ve been using the app a little over a week and I find it very useful, Very informative and easy to use. My advice is don’t do anything to break the law because anyone who’s listening will hear your personal information! My only complaint is that some of the police and emergency personnel sometimes talk very fast or you can’t understand what they are saying but there’s nothing you can do about that.
Great app, but.
by Dirky87 on 2019/03/07 03:12
This is my favorite scanner app but there are a couple of bugs I would like to see get fixed. I am a scanner streamer and these are just a couple things I noticed. There is a major delay in the current listeners, it’s probably around a 10 minute delay from the actual Broadcastify sight. Also the alpha tags show up about 10 second before the agency actually talks. It’d be nice to see that get synced.
Police Scanner
by Herbie5-0 on 2019/02/10 18:24
I like this app and there are many jurisdictions available. It is quite addictive to listen to everything that is happening in my County. It is also evident that we have a very serious drug problem in this country in general based on the high number of overdose emergencies I have heard so far. One issue is that my local Police, Fire and EMS scanner goes offline and there seems to be no way to report it. The Fire and EMER is usually online but I personally prefer the police calls. I’m not sure if that has anything to do with the app itself.
App not working
by Win1958 on 2019/11/06 03:30
This as been my go to app for listening to what’s going on around my city. However the past few days it’s not working and always offline. I’ve deleted the app a few times and reinstalled the app only to still have the same problem. Update: I just gave this two stars because for the past few weeks the police scanner app has not been working properly, after five to ten minutes the scanner shuts off. Pretty sad because when I would like to buy the app something like this happens that I’ve always changed my mind.
Love this App
by vvfd343 on 2019/06/10 23:15
Overall this app is the best one no doubt. I did however more recently noticed that some of the channels that I listened to have disappeared (Baltimore County Police, Baltimore City Police). Now I know that agencies make changes. I was curious if that’s what has happened. I mean if it did no biggie. Just really enjoyed listening to them since I was from there. But besides that, there’s not another scanner app that I would download.
Ads don’t go away
by popuos kill this app on 2019/02/04 13:36
I have loved this app for a long time but the ads kept taking over my phone. Paid the $2.99 to remove ads and they persisted and even seemed to get more aggressive. Selecting restore purchase every time is a pain and does not seem to do anything other than say your purchase has been restored because the ads continue. I can no longer recommend this app.
This is the Scanner App you want!
by TheMiltonCrespo on 2019/01/30 11:43
I’ve been using this app for about 5-6 years and I go to say this is by far the best scanner app. Until very recently they’ve updated the look and having an iPhone X it was nice to see the app fit my phone screen instead of seeing those ugly black bars at the bottom and top of my phone. My only complaint has to be the lack of the ability to rewind and the ability view archives like you can do on the Broadcastify website. Maybe create a Scanner Pro version of the app with these abilities. I’d definitely buy it. Other than that I think it’s a great app. The 10 codes should be taken off though as police codes aren’t the same throughout the country. But nonetheless GREAT app. Hope to continue to see those frequent updates. Keep up the good work.
I like this app
by Captian_Cloudy on 2019/10/11 05:16
I have been using this for about a month and I just purchased the pro today. I am satisfied with this app overall it is solid. One thing I wish was optional is to have the ability to adjust the db and pitch of the incoming radio frequency. Sometimes it’s really hard to understand what’s coming through. I hope the developer sees this! Yes I still give it 5 stars 🙄
Ads?
by Becky959300 on 2019/02/06 04:59
I purchased this several years ago and suddenly about 2-3 days ago it’s showing ads. I clicked to remove ads then clicked restore purchase and it kept saying purchase restored but ads stayed. So then I did the update thinking it would fix it and now it’s saying no purchase found on my account. How do I fix this? I shouldn’t have to pay again, right?
Hands down BEST scanner app!!!
by Carmen4229 on 2019/02/04 06:36
This has always been my ‘go to’ scanner app to stay on top of everything in my local area, as well as distant locations. The alerts work well and the top 50 feed is great coverage for happenings nationwide. Loving all the cool updates & new features! I’m happy to pay $2.99 to remove ads and support development. Thank you for providing a reliable, top notch scanner app!
Best Ever Scanner App Besides My Regular Scanner
by TimWhiteRailProductions on 2019/08/23 19:22
This scanner app is so awesome and little bit better sometimes then my regular uniden scanner I use for my trains when I go railfanning they have so many awesome stations to listen to specially in your area your from I like it a lot and been using this app for many years now before I even had my regular scanner and had a camera so I like a lot
Doesn’t Have Options to Fix Problems
by clarabella92 on 2019/10/16 02:35
I have used this scanner app for about two years now. I go to piddle around on it tonight and it tells me “unable to connect”. I hit play and it still tells me “unable to connect”. Why? Where’s FAQs if I need them? Where is a service section? But most importantly, again, why? All of my other apps work, my WiFi is fully connected. It just doesn’t wanna connect I suppose. I have now downloaded another app. Hopefully it works better!
Great App
by Torch5462 on 2019/08/13 03:47
I’ve listened to scanners for years and this App makes it possible to listen all over the country without and massive antenna. I tested this app versus a home based scanner and it picked up every call that the home base model picked up. 1.99 to remove ads is a bargain. Only question is will the developer also include an opportunity to scan multiple channels in future updates. Thanks!!
The best scanner app on the market.
by micah 44 on 2019/11/26 17:36
I have gotten into listening to police scanners because I have friends who were police officers and it got me interested. This app was featured on Apple Vis, the most popular podcast covering blindness related tech demonstrations. That is how I found out about it. I have fallen in love with this app now. It is the best scanning app on the market. This is the most important app I own.
Remove the ads!
by blstz12 on 2019/02/05 14:10
I realize you need to make money, but the new ads are ridiculous. I am a volunteer emt. I used to use scanner radio when I got in my vehicle that doesn’t have a radio to respond to a call so I could hear what is going on, any updates. I use this app a lot! And the ads are annoying. I would pay the $2.99 to remove the ads, but there is no information on how often $2.99 is due. And did I mention I’m a volunteer? I don’t make any money being an emt and now one of the tools I use is no longer free to me. I am open to suggestions for another app I can use.
Great
by Dragonryo95 on 2019/02/05 23:50
So I’ve been using the new interface for a while and my mind is blown how far this app has come in a short time the creator is always been good with this app but they’ve out did themselves this time With the ease-of-use anybody can use this app right now good job I basically rely on your scanner app to get the information I need and I have never let me down.
Long time user, now pay to remove ads
by Slotnut2012 on 2019/01/31 19:25
Ok. I've been using this app for many many years. Recently, it went "pay to remove ads". I was originally salty about the change until I stopped and thought about it. It's a good app, and with the screen updates, it seems trivial to pay the roughly $5 for the developer to update. Good app, worth the cost.
Simply the Best
by Buttonsrocks on 2019/01/12 04:30
I have used your app for years. I used it on androids years ago and was elated to see that you brought to iPhone. Most recently I was also happy to see that it now supports the new screen sizes. There’s no reason to have any other scanner app. This one is simple to use and looks great and always functions perfectly. Thank you Gordon!
Still in Denial
by Spunky811 on 2019/10/19 17:15
I remember paying for a version of this app via Apple, 3 or more years ago. Developer denies ever making a pro version for Apple. Then what did I pay for and who got the money? Rather than find out from Apple, the developer gets snotty with people that paid for services. Did an imposter get the money? I thought Apple screened everyone. If the developer put half the effort into figuring out why so many of us say we paid but have nothing to show for it then he does calling us liars, we would have an answer by now. I think this guy learned customer relations from Comcast!
Why are ads back after purchase?
by SeaStories on 2019/02/07 00:00
I purchased the non-ad version about5-6 years ago but now the ads are back in full force and the restore purchase option doesn’t work. As far as the app, I have used it for years. It is good for the most part but the Virginia Beach station I listen to sounds terrible all of the time. It’s broken up and I miss a lot. Not sure if it’s the app or the way it is streamed but I don’t think it does it for some other stations.
It’s as good as the people who are involved
by Night5775 on 2019/03/01 20:57
All of these are simulcast scanners and are only as good as the scanner is to the tower. I’ve used in Connecticut where I was a Firefighter for 25 years and I now use it in Florida. Improvements would be listing individual cities covered in a county system but that is more on the person listing the scanner. Solid app but drains battery but might be not app.
Great but...
by shelly11111969 on 2019/10/02 02:06
I’ve always had this app, for years It’s been on every phone I’ve had. But lately certain places aren’t working, when it says there’s hundreds of listeners. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app, turned off my phone, gotten an update and still nothing. It’ll say it’s playing but absolutely no sound comes out, but other places work fine. I thought it was only my phone but my daughters phone is the same. It’ll say there’s hundreds of listeners, when I’m getting absolutely no sound.
Best scanner app and I’ve tried them all
by CurryMe on 2019/05/05 21:14
This app was okay for a long time, then at some point the owner started doing frequent and multiple updates and improvements. That has so greatly improved this app and it is now by far the best police scanner app based on Broadcastify available. Well done! Keep the improvements coming.
Adds are Recently Invasive
by MichaelOak on 2019/04/23 22:14
The app functions just fine. However, the adds are INVASIVE! They take up complete screens and many start playing sound right away. This is not cool, especially for volunteer firefighters who use the app to get critical information about calls. Missing the dispatch because some casino game advertisement popped up and started playing 70s porn music is not cool. I understand advertisements but they need to be less intrusive. If this is not fixed, I cannot use the app any longer.
