THIS APP IS RIGGED
by Level 3 Felon on 2019/12/09 20:05
I got arrested for breaking into a house but they were cool enough to let me write this review. This app is garbage, I was trying to run away from the cops after breaking into the house. I was using the app to know where the police were going but I still got caught at the end. If this app is more accurate, I might of been able to get away.

Needs Updated Coverage
by MX$1 on 2019/12/04 20:49
A previous version of this app included the South Bay cities near LA, the latest version does not. These cities include Torrance, Hawthorne, El Segundo, Gardena, Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach. These cities have recently collaborated on a new $15 million digital radio system called the Interoperability Network. It would be nice if these communications were included in the app.
Awesome app!!!

I really have found myself becoming dependent on it to know what’s going on in the vicinity of my neighborhood.

It does meet my expectations and I feel better known what’s going on around the neighborhood

Small town
by A55wanderer on 2019/10/31 00:40
Live in a small town and rarely anything happens. However, had a few occasions where this app has come into play and helped tremendously. Had a flood where most of the town was knee deep in rushing river water and on another, a stolen car had been pulled over in town where the occupants began shooting at the police officer. The 3 suspects took off on foot and it felt like the whole world came down on top of our little town of 1200 people. The scanner kept us up on what was going on as it was happening and what part of the city they were looking so as I didn’t have to worry and grab my gun as well. Great app

Using as a Police Scanner
by Cerridwenscall on 2018/04/24 02:04
I really enjoy this app! Have not delved beyond the police scanner yet, as that was main reason to use it. It works exactly as you would want for that. So many options! I live in a large city in CO and rest of my family live back in MI. This lets me not only know what is happening here in this huge city around me, but I can keep an ear out on my adult kids to👍🏼 Interesting how you learn that when police departments complain how underfunded they are, or under staffed, by hearing that on any given weekend, in any district, only 3-4 cars are on the late night shift, and complaint calls hold for over 24 hrs....you can understand the frustration from not only the people in the city, but very much so by the police who have to answer those insanely late response times! Last weekend Friday night, 2am, 4 different calls were held involving guns and knives simply because there was no one to respond! Yup. Sorry for the long story, but this app has actual learning value to it. 109% recommendation ✌🏽
Great Free App
by GJCO Listener on 2017/08/11 03:24
I've owned a handheld digital scanner for years, and it was with me for much of my free time and always when I was in the car. Unfortunately it got knocked off a table and is not working. This app helps fill the gap pretty well. I like that I can listen to other areas from home and can tune in to home when traveling. I love that it has a timer that turns the app off if I fall asleep listening. I listen almost exclusively to law enforcement/fire. The one thing I do not like about the app is that more than one channel will run at a time. With City, County and Fire all going at the same time it is sometimes impossible to know what is happening. This is the next best thing to my handheld.
One of the best for free!
by CSRD1 on 2017/06/24 04:37
I shouldn't complain about the ads since it's free but they can be a pain. Sometimes the full screen ads won't allow you to X out of them. 95% of the time it works great though. It's nice to know what's going on around my neighborhood! Since the last iPhone update, I've been getting bumped off a lot! I'll play my game, which I've done several times in the past with no problems but now it's very annoying! Now I'm conflicted on my rating. Please fix! June 2017: Since my last post, I've learned that I have to update all my apps for this to work appropriately! I quits on me if I have anything pending. Also once you've established your station and if you can successfully "X" out of the ad, go the one page back, where you chose your station and then you can listen while doing other things on your phone without getting bumped off! I think leaving it on the clock page leaves it vulnerable to quitting! Now that I've figured all of this out, I can enjoy it! Thanks!
Interesting entertainment, plus has TONS of music stations
by Pandora PDX on 2018/10/08 19:13
Happened across this on the App Store, and was like: “Oh yeah! That’s right! They have these thingies where you can listen in, to the police scanners”!! Had forgot these things existed LOL. Interesting to listen to. Your area, or anywhere else. Ironically, the next day, my neighbors were having a domestic issue.. I knew police had to have been called; & sure enough, I heard it.. So it’s definitely fascinating. Then I see there’s music stations worldwide, too!! Diff than my other platforms. I’m into electronic music, & the more unique styles of European deep house & minimal tech stations available for example, had me pretty dang excited! 3 stars for the tech issues, crashes, cutting out, etc., but other than that, it’s fun to clean house and listen to music, or to what’s going on in my city, crime-wise. Although I’m sure there are private, non-transmittable channels also used, it’s still cool to listen to occasionally.
A Great Source Of Music
by DonPgh15108 on 2019/03/17 09:51
I love this app. The police and fire scanner allows me to pick up channels from all over the world. If you are bilingual, you’ll love listening to transmissions in Spanish, German, Russian, or a seemingly endless string of others worldwide. I especially love the wide variety of available music genres. I can listen to music 24/7, if I want to, and the choices of genre lead me further to more options of the genre, including radio stations. My only displeasure involves the Calm Radio subscription commercials that air almost every time a music selection is finished playing. It’s akin to listening to public radio - you can’t get around them, unless you subscribe.

Ease-of-use.
by San Diego Drew on 2019/07/04 09:48
Even though I am blind I find this app very easy to use. Navigation is fairly straightforward even while using my voice over app on my iPhone. I have some usable eyesight, but not enough to read small print. Even with this slight obstacle I find this app very easy to navigate. There is quite a variety of features as well as radio, and emergency broadcast stations to listen to. Very much enjoying the vintage art bell stations. Will definitely recommend this to my friends who enjoy radio, and local first responder frequency listening.
Public access to Application
by kjkymotttjer on 2019/08/25 12:08
I think it is great for the public to have access to this type of application. It not only enlighten the public, but could be an opportunity for public to provide information. It should never be used by public in a mischievous manner! I think it could enhance the public’s outlook and understanding of what the police department deals with on a daily basis. By listening to this dispatch, officers often don’t have all information needed to do their jobs, so the public’s cooperation is desperately needed!

It’s actually a great app. It’s not just great it’s freakin insane.

I can actually know whats going on around town, and in emergency calls I can listen in before it comes out in the morning news,. Whoever made it possible, he or she or they are geniuses, heroes and I would give them a handshake cause it’s earned.

First and foremost, I am not an expert pert. Obviously, if I was my name needn't be shown giving review; it would be listed underneath ownership are designed almost identically to the other and to find one that meets all of the users needs while the others merely 'suffice'and the reasoning behind my endorsement this specific scanner because of two very different reasons once you begin your shopping and searching and comparing all the limited choices for an app that there isn't a wide range of options for the police scanner apps.
It’s ok, but....
by Guy named Larry on 2017/11/12 01:38
The app is ok for what it is. However, I wish it were more of a scanner and would really scan. As it is, you pick a channel to listen to and that’s it, but while you’re listening to that one something may happen on the other one you’re not listening to right now. On a real scanner, it scans all channels programmed into it. As it scans all the channels programmed wherever the action is is where it goes to so you don’t miss it. So while one may be silent the next one may have a call and it’ll automatically go to whichever one picks up traffic first.
Interesting app, interface needs improvement
by Liam the zombie killer on 2017/06/21 17:21
Like I said, interesting app. You will make what you will of what you hear. I see some people using it to fuel their paranoia, that's probably not the way to use it. The interface needs improvement though. It's not easy enough to navigate backwards. Sometimes you have to go through 4 or 5 steps just to get back to the home screen. I recommend adding a button that takes you back to the home screen from wherever you are.
Adds so many adds
by This weeks leader on 2019/04/24 00:26
I just don’t think candy crush adds should play right when you try to use an emergency app. That’s honest not cool. If you want an emergency app that’s not going to play adds multiple times before you can hear the scanner or use the app at all, than don’t buy this. Honestly just don’t download it at all. Nothing but adds and wasting time every single time no matter what when you try to open it just adds adds adds! Don’t down load it’s nothing but adds not even one star. Literally nothing but adds. Just stop with the adds I’m uninstalling this and I hate you! You made me late to hearing about a loved one dying in an accident!
Well worth it
by ThommyMac on 2019/10/17 18:47
this might seem like a shill or a plant but I have absolutely no connection to anyone involved with this product. When Bosco’s or whoever closed down in thus area a while back had real sales. I purchased an awesome scanner easily worth $150 for $25 & I loved it. It got lost or pinched during a move & I missed it terribly. This ain’t too shabby of a replacement, even the free version. Seriously, a great app.
Great Scanner App!
by Chey975 on 2019/07/22 17:15
I have been using this app for quite a while now. I don't have one negative comment to make. I also love that I can record the feed I'm listening to. Keep up the great work and thank you!! P.S. For those of you who give a low rating because your area isn't available to listen to, it's not the apps fault! Some areas have made it so the public can't listen.
Police scanner
by neurosurgnurse on 2019/03/24 00:20
It’s great for my small town but where I am from only offers public works. And it’s a fairly large city, one of the top 3 largest in my state. For some reason during severe weather it does not work at all. This has happened twice recently during tornado warnings. But for free it’s great especially since the Ems and fire station are almost next door to me.
Bugs and perpetual full screen ads
by Anonmom on 2017/11/29 22:30
-When given access to my Location the app cannot find any scanners in my area-one of the largest, most populous, major metropolitan cities in the U.S. Scanners close to me, are retrievable only by working thru the menu, State>County> City etc etc. -Popup ad obliterates the entire screen and will not dismiss. The links in the ad are dead and selecting one of them does nothing to dismiss the ad, so, the user is locked out of the app. Update: downloaded another scanner app, Police5-0 and while it too has popupads, they easily dismiss and are not nearly as intrusive. They also don't make the app freeze!

Informed is best
by Ret SO S-9 on 2019/05/05 03:35
I’ve used this scanner app before to keep track of critical incidents where I am at the moment and the area where I live. It’s better to know what’s going on in case you can help or even know when an imminent threat exists, and someone starts knocking on the door, you either need to keep the door locked. Or at worst, be REALLY careful before opening it!
Great App
by ironshepherd on 2019/06/06 02:49
I am twice retired LE and have 2 scanners in my home, however, this app allows me to listen in on activity without having to carry extra and sometimes cumbersome equipment (I.e. - handheld scanner). I can therefore listen 24/7 if wanting to. The only downfall is that I don’t think you can monitor more than one freq at a time like you can on a regular scanner.
Ballistic Scare
by Hawaiian Isles on 2018/01/15 07:18
I live in Hawaii and we experienced false ballistic threat on Saturday. It took 45 minutes to notify the public that this was a false report. I turned on the police scanner and heard that this was a false threat. I notified family members that this was a false report. I can’t imagine what it would feel like to not have been aware that this was a false alarm.
Great travel partner
by Pride/power!!! on 2017/06/11 13:06
When we travel to the North the scanner comes in handy when we stay in the different states to hear what is going on in the different places we stay in!! We like to stay in touch with the police and fire scanner to know what's up and to stay away from the problem spots!!
LOVE THIS APP!!
by Kim Sells on 2018/08/22 01:51
My friend is a police officer in another town and with this app I can listen to his calls. I love the Record feature, and have even personalized the app with a picture of my son. There is an endless selection of locations to listen to all over the world! Such a great app, can't believe it's free! The only problem I recently had was an ad that was pornographic!!! Where did that come from. 😳🙄😮

Good app if your city allows their scanners public
by deevanromer on 2019/08/08 06:46
I really liked this app until the city of Denver and all the surrounding counties stopped allowing the public to hear their scanners. There are only two counties, which are combined into one scanner station, that are still allowed to be aired to the public. I felt safer knowing what was happening around me.
Works well
by Jo iPhone 5 on 2019/02/20 01:38
I like it, I’m able to get updates enroute to the station and I can listen to my son when he’s working across the state at his department. His feed is about three minutes behind actual, I’m not sure if this is across the board or just a specific feed? Either way I enjoy the app.

by shawshank27 on 2018/08/12 19:32
I've always had a fascination in listening to cops in action. With all the recent misfortunes in Chicago, I find myself glued to those frequencies... Very active. The app also includes radio stations of all different types of music that I find interesting also. I like the app, you should try it too! 👍
Interesting, educational...
by Theresse on 2018/01/16 16:03
I'd like to say this tells me where/what local sirens are all about but usually by then the police talking to dispatch and such has already taken place. However it's an interesting thing to listen to to fall asleep to! I don't mean to but the voices and radio background noise are often kind of lulling! 😆
Great scanner, but...
by neiljcrump on 2019/10/09 16:34
The only ‘complaint’ is not being able to get the departments that have the encrypted scanners. My hometown isn’t available for that reason. You’d think they would ‘catch up’ in the technology. However, the departments it DOES GET, have no complaints at all, & recommend for sure!
Nice

It lets me know exactly where the wackers of Baldwin are racing off to with their crazy driving and blasting horns at 4:00 in the morning when there are no cars or pedestrians. As a lawyer I really enjoy this app because when they hurt people I can mark it and then pulled tapes. Thanks for the app and unfortunately for Baldwin thank you for givyme job security.
Wow
by Dchasewifey on 2017/10/25 14:13
This is the best scanner app for free. The 5-0 radio doesn't allow you to listen in the background for long. However, this app allows you to listen to police and radio in the background for however long you want. And in addition, you get to record ANY event you want to!

Great app full page ads are evil
by AlexDGreek on 2018/04/09 15:43
I love this app! It is a great resource. As a free resource, I know that they need to make their money for development someway, and that way happens to be advertising. However, full-page ads that you can’t close in an app are synonymous with hidden automatic playing videos. They take away from the experience in the worst possible way.

I have used this app for several years for personal improvement. Still really like it. Easy to record your calls and review communications later without having to contact dispatch center for tapes. Valuable tool in assessment of size-up, radio traffic, clarity and instructions. Fast to load as long as you set your favorites.

I have used this scanner for many years and it has helped in many ways! One instance a vandal was prowling the neighborhood and police were on his trail. He went through my yard to some trails and notified police. He was caught. It’s a great tool to use and very beneficial as well. Five stars!!

What's the constant clicking?!?

When I first started using the app it was super great, but about 2 weeks ago- after I upgraded to the paid version I started getting the constant clicking all the time... why?! This is annoying. But I like that you can listen to other countries as well as my local center

by azn chicka on 2019/09/07 18:21
Very informative!! In the United States we all have a right to hear police officers on their radios doing their jobs. Our constitution guarantees this. They are supposed to be uphold our laws and be accountable for their actions. I’m retired from the military after 21 years and had many rules to follow under the UCMJ. Thanks

by jerry-o- Andretti on 2019/07/20 01:35
I work for a corrections center and understand the stress police, fire and EMS personnel experience daily. I like being able to listen to them doing their jobs. They put it on the line every day and I respect them all greatly. How they can keep their cool in all situations impresses me. Thanks to the police scanner app for allowing me to do that.
Great but frustrating
by l_wiggy on 2018/08/15 02:18
We love listening to this nightly but it gets frustrating because it goes off from time to time and you have to exit and come back into it. Sometimes it goes to pause on it’s own and you have to reset it. Some nights it stays on all night which is awesome.

I keep clicking on play but nothing happens. This app haven’t been updated for 9 months and needs to be. Please fix this issue.
Great App, but...
by darinc on 2018/01/03 13:05
I like this app and use it from time to time when something odd is going on in my neighborhood. I’d give it a higher rating, but this morning while trying to find out more about a car parked in front of my house at 5am (which is odd) a really explicit video popped up. I was able to exit from it, but the ad went to full screen and pretty pornographic.

A previous version of this app included the South Bay cities near LA, the latest version does not. These cities include Torrance, Hawthorne, El Segundo, Gardena, Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach. These cities have recently collaborated on a new $15 million digital radio system called the Interoperability Network. It would be nice if these communications were included in the app.

Small town
by A55wanderer on 2019/10/31 00:40
Live in a small town and rarely anything happens. However, had a few occasions where this app has come into play and helped tremendously. Had a flood where most of the town was knee deep in rushing river water and on another, a stolen car had been pulled over in town where the occupants began shooting at the police officer. The 3 suspects took off on foot and it felt like the whole world came down on top of our little town of 1200 people. The scanner kept us up on what was going on as it was happening and what part of the city they were looking so as I didn’t have to worry and grab my gun as well. Great app

Free and a tool to utilize for survival in the hood, this app couldn’t get any better! Unarmed single female. Constant line of max heads zombies lurking along side, aggressive panhandlers loitering about looking to steal anything that isn’t nailed down, front door that faces less than 10 ft from a main thoroughfare in a crime infested neighborhood where the ghetto bird is always above my roof, constant whaling of sirens and then the cops constantly zipping by or zigzagging the neighborhood looking for someone who did God only knows what, this scanner app is the only thing that has, countless times I must add, alerted me my immediate well-being is potentially in jeopardy and therefore I need to baton down the hatches, Look for the mace, grab old slugger and be on the lookout. I use it as a tool almost daily to help keep me safer and to clue me in in what the hell is really going around up in here, the hood. Literally just heard sirens right now so let me tune in. Thanks police scanner app people for helping me be better equipped to deal with all that goes on daily in the hood.

this might seem like a shill or a plant but I have absolutely no connection to anyone involved with this product. When Bosco’s or whoever closed down in thus area a while back had real sales. I purchased an awesome scanner easily worth $150 for $25 & I loved it. It got lost or pinched during a move & I missed it terribly. This ain’t too shabby of a replacement, even the free version. Seriously, a great app.

Great scanner, but...

The only ‘complaint’ is not being able to get the departments that have the encrypted scanners. My hometown isn’t available for that reason. You’d think they would ‘catch up’ in the technology. However, the departments it DOES GET, have no complaints at all, & recommend for sure!

Using as a Police Scanner
by Cerridwenscall on 2018/04/24 02:04
I really enjoy this app! Have not delved beyond the police scanner yet, as that was main reason to use it. It works exactly as you would want for that. So many options! I live in a large city in CO and rest of my family live back in MI. This lets me not only know what is happening here in this huge city around me, but I can keep an ear out on my adult kids to👍🏼 Interesting how you learn that when police departments complain how underfunded they are, or under staffed, by hearing that on any given weekend, in any district, only 3-4 cars are on the late night shift, and complaint calls hold for over 24 hrs....you can understand the frustration from not only the people in the city, but very much so by the police who have to answer those insanely late response times! Last weekend Friday night, 2am, 4 different calls were held involving guns and knives simply because there was no one to respond! Yup. Sorry for the long story, but this app has actual learning value to it. 109% recommendation ✌🏽
Great Free App
by GJCO Listener on 2017/08/11 03:24
I've owned a handheld digital scanner for years, and it was with me for much of my free time and always when I was in the car. Unfortunately it got knocked off a table and is not working. This app helps fill the gap pretty well. I like that I can listen to other areas from home and can tune in to home when traveling. I love that it has a timer that turns the app off if I fall asleep listening. I listen almost exclusively to law enforcement/fire. The one thing I do not like about the app is that more than one channel will run at a time. With City, County and Fire all going at the same time it is sometimes impossible to know what is happening. This is the next best thing to my handheld.
One of the best for free!
by CSRD1 on 2017/06/24 04:37
I shouldn't complain about the ads since it's free but they can be a pain. Sometimes the full screen ads won't allow you to X out of them. 95% of the time it works great though. It's nice to know what's going on around my neighborhood! Since the last iPhone update, I've been getting bumped off a lot! I'll play my game, which I've done several times in the past with no problems but now it's very annoying! Now I'm conflicted on my rating. Please fix! June 2017: Since my last post, I've learned that I have to update all my apps for this to work appropriately! I quits on me if I have anything pending. Also once you've established your station and if you can successfully "X" out of the ad, go the one page back, where you chose your station and then you can listen while doing other things on your phone without getting bumped off! I think leaving it on the clock page leaves it vulnerable to quitting! Now that I've figured all of this out, I can enjoy it! Thanks!
Interesting entertainment, plus has TONS of music stations
by Pandora PDX on 2018/10/08 19:13
Happened across this on the App Store, and was like: “Oh yeah! That’s right! They have these thingies where you can listen in, to the police scanners”!! Had forgot these things existed LOL. Interesting to listen to. Your area, or anywhere else. Ironically, the next day, my neighbors were having a domestic issue.. I knew police had to have been called; & sure enough, I heard it.. So it’s definitely fascinating. Then I see there’s music stations worldwide, too!! Diff than my other platforms. I’m into electronic music, & the more unique styles of European deep house & minimal tech stations available for example, had me pretty dang excited! 3 stars for the tech issues, crashes, cutting out, etc., but other than that, it’s fun to clean house and listen to music, or to what’s going on in my city, crime-wise. Although I’m sure there are private, non-transmittable channels also used, it’s still cool to listen to occasionally.
A Great Source Of Music
by DonPgh15108 on 2019/03/17 09:51
I love this app. The police and fire scanner allows me to pick up channels from all over the world. If you are bilingual, you’ll love listening to transmissions in Spanish, German, Russian, or a seemingly endless string of others worldwide. I especially love the wide variety of available music genres. I can listen to music 24/7, if I want to, and the choices of genre lead me further to more options of the genre, including radio stations. My only displeasure involves the Calm Radio subscription commercials that air almost every time a music selection is finished playing. It’s akin to listening to public radio - you can’t get around them, unless you subscribe.
Small town
by A55wanderer on 2019/10/31 00:40
Live in a small town and rarely anything happens. However, had a few occasions where this app has come into play and helped tremendously. Had a flood where most of the town was knee deep in rushing river water and on another, a stolen car had been pulled over in town where the occupants began shooting at the police officer. The 3 suspects took off on foot and it felt like the whole world came down on top of our little town of 1200 people. The scanner kept us up on what was going on as it was happening and what part of the city they were looking so as I didn’t have to worry and grab my gun as well. Great app
Ease-of-use.
by San Diego Drew on 2019/07/04 09:48
Even though I am blind I find this app very easy to use. Navigation is fairly straightforward even while using my voice over app on my iPhone. I have some usable eyesight, but not enough to read small print. Even with this slight obstacle I find this app very easy to navigate. There is quite a variety of features as well as radio, and emergency broadcast stations to listen to. Very much enjoying the vintage art bell stations. Will definitely recommend this to my friends who enjoy radio, and local first responder frequency listening.
Public access to Application
by kjkymotttjer on 2019/08/25 12:08
I think it is great for the public to have access to this type of application. It not only enlighten the public, but could be an opportunity for public to provide information. It should never be used by public in a mischievous manner! I think it could enhance the public’s outlook and understanding of what the police department deals with on a daily basis. By listening to this dispatch, officers often don’t have all information needed to do their jobs, so the public’s cooperation is desperately needed!

It’s actually a great app. It’s not just great it’s freakin insane. It’s asome., I would love to see in time to come the state scanner channels mixed in with this app. But besides everything else, this app is really nice. I can actually know whats going on around town, and in emergency calls I can listen in before it comes out in the morning news,. Whoever made it possible, he or she or they are geniuses, heroes and I would give them a handshake cause it’s earned.
It's cooo
by TwakJobthaGOD on 2018/01/27 10:01
First and foremost, I am not an expert pert. Obviously, if I was my name needn't be shown giving review; it would be listed underneath ownership are designed almost identically to the other and to find one that meets all of the users needs while the others merely 'suffice'and the reasoning behind my endorsement this specific scanner because of two very different reasons once you begin your shopping and searching and comparing all the limited choices for an app that there isn't a wide range of options for the police scanner apps.
It’s ok, but....
by Guy named Larry on 2017/11/12 01:38
The app is ok for what it is. However, I wish it were more of a scanner and would really scan. As it is, you pick a channel to listen to and that’s it, but while you’re listening to that one something may happen on the other one you’re not listening to right now. On a real scanner, it scans all channels programmed into it. As it scans all the channels programmed wherever the action is is where it goes to so you don’t miss it. So while one may be silent the next one may have a call and it’ll automatically go to whichever one picks up traffic first.
Interesting app, interface needs improvement
by Liam the zombie killer on 2017/06/21 17:21
Like I said, interesting app. You will make what you will of what you hear. I see some people using it to fuel their paranoia, that's probably not the way to use it. The interface needs improvement though. It's not easy enough to navigate backwards. Sometimes you have to go through 4 or 5 steps just to get back to the home screen. I recommend adding a button that takes you back to the home screen from wherever you are.
Adds so many adds
by This weeks leader on 2019/04/24 00:26
I just don’t think candy crush adds should play right when you try to use an emergency app. That’s honest not cool. If you want an emergency app that’s not going to play adds multiple times before you can hear the scanner or use the app at all, than don’t buy this. Honestly just don’t download it at all. Nothing but adds and wasting time every single time no matter what when you try to open it just adds adds adds! Don’t down load it’s nothing but adds not even one star. Literally nothing but adds. Just stop with the adds I’m uninstalling this and I hate you! You made me late to hearing about a loved one dying in an accident!

For those of you who give a low rating because your area isn't available to listen to, it's not the apps fault! Some areas have made it so the public can't listen.
Police scanner
by neurosurgnurse on 2019/03/24 00:20
It’s great for my small town but where I am from only offers public works. And it’s a fairly large city, one of the top 3 largest in my state. For some reason during severe weather it does not work at all. This has happened twice recently during tornado warnings. But for free it’s great especially since the Ems and fire station are almost next door to me.
Bugs and perpetual full screen ads
by Anonmom on 2017/11/29 22:30
-When given access to my Location the app cannot find any scanners in my area-one of the largest, most populous, major metropolitan cities in the U.S. Scanners close to me, are retrievable only by working thru the menu, State>County> City etc etc. -Popup ad obliterates the entire screen and will not dismiss. The links in the ad are dead and selecting one of them does nothing to dismiss the ad, so, the user is locked out of the app. Update: downloaded another scanner app, Police5-0 and while it too has popupads, they easily dismiss and are not nearly as intrusive. They also don't make the app freeze!
Police scanner
by being proactive on 2019/11/13 06:06
I really have found myself becoming dependent on it to know what’s going on in the vicinity of my neighborhood. A lot of what I may hear on this scanner app. I’ll then go to police reports or other internet sites to see if I can find out more of what’s going on. It does meet my expectations and I feel better known what’s going on around the neighborhood
Informed is best
by Ret SO S-9 on 2019/05/05 03:35
I’ve used this scanner app before to keep track of critical incidents where I am at the moment and the area where I live. It’s better to know what’s going on in case you can help or even know when an imminent threat exists, and someone starts knocking on the door, you either need to keep the door locked. Or at worst, be REALLY careful before opening it!
Great App
by ironshepherd on 2019/06/06 02:49
I am twice retired LE and have 2 scanners in my home, however, this app allows me to listen in on activity without having to carry extra and sometimes cumbersome equipment (I.e. - handheld scanner). I can therefore listen 24/7 if wanting to. The only downfall is that I don’t think you can monitor more than one freq at a time like you can on a regular scanner.
Ballistic Scare
by Hawaiian Isles on 2018/01/15 07:18
I live in Hawaii and we experienced false ballistic threat on Saturday. It took 45 minutes to notify the public that this was a false report. I turned on the police scanner and heard that this was a false threat. I notified family members that this was a false report. I can’t imagine what it would feel like to not have been aware that this was a false alarm.

by Pride/power!!! on 2017/06/11 13:06
When we travel to the North the scanner comes in handy when we stay in the different states to hear what is going on in the different places we stay in!! We like to stay in touch with the police and fire scanner to know what's up and to stay away from the problem spots!!

There is an endless selection of locations to listen to all over the world! Such a great app, can't believe it's free! The only problem I recently had was an ad that was pornographic!!! Where did that come from. 😳🙄😮

This app has always done exactly what it needs to do, until it didn’t 😵 It wouldn’t play any of the stations when I clicked on them, and was being super buggy. Thank goodness though, after I uninstalled and reinstalled it, that seemed to fix everything 🤷🏼‍♀️
Good app if your city allows their scanners public
by deevanromer on 2019/08/08 06:46
I really liked this app until the city of Denver and all the surrounding counties stopped allowing the public to hear their scanners. There are only two counties, which are combined into one scanner station, that are still allowed to be aired to the public. I felt safer knowing what was happening around me.
Works well
by Jo iPhone 5 on 2019/02/20 01:38
I like it, I’m able to get updates enroute to the station and I can listen to my son when he’s working across the state at his department. His feed is about three minutes behind actual, I’m not sure if this is across the board or just a specific feed? Either way I enjoy the app.

by shawshank27 on 2018/08/12 19:32
I've always had a fascination in listening to cops in action. With all the recent misfortunes in Chicago, I find myself glued to those frequencies... Very active. The app also includes radio stations of all different types of music that I find interesting also. I like the app, you should try it too! 👍
Interesting, educational...
by Theresse on 2018/01/16 16:03
I'd like to say this tells me where/what local sirens are all about but usually by then the police talking to dispatch and such has already taken place. However it's an interesting thing to listen to to fall asleep to! I don't mean to but the voices and radio background noise are often kind of lulling! 😆

It lets me know exactly where the wackers of Baldwin are racing off to with their crazy driving and blasting horns at 4:00 in the morning when there are no cars or pedestrians. As a lawyer I really enjoy this app because when they hurt people I can mark it and then pulled tapes. Thanks for the app and unfortunately for Baldwin thank you for givyme job security.
Wow
by Dchasewifey on 2017/10/25 14:13
This is the best scanner app for free. The 5-0 radio doesn't allow you to listen in the background for long. However, this app allows you to listen to police and radio in the background for however long you want. And in addition, you get to record ANY event you want to!

Great app full page ads are evil
by AlexDGreek on 2018/04/09 15:43
I love this app! It is a great resource. As a free resource, I know that they need to make their money for development someway, and that way happens to be advertising. However, full-page ads that you can’t close in an app are synonymous with hidden automatic playing videos. They take away from the experience in the worst possible way.

What's the constant clicking?!?
by Shaygrl78 on 2017/07/21 04:54
When I first started using the app it was super great, but about 2 weeks ago- after I upgraded to the paid version I started getting the constant clicking all the time... why?! This is annoying. But I like that you can listen to other countries as well as my local center

Very informative!! In the United States we all have a right to hear police officers on their radios doing their jobs. Our constitution guarantees this. They are supposed to be uphold our laws and be accountable for their actions. I’m retired from the military after 21 years and had many rules to follow under the UCMJ. Thanks

MAUI friends or anyone for that matter, we’ve been burning for 2 days, all the misinformation you get from social media is confusing and could be dangerous! Listening to the real time for closures, and what’s really happening...could be a LIFE SAVER! Or at least time and frustration!! 🤷‍♂️🤙
Informative

I work for a corrections center and understand the stress police, fire and EMS personnel experience daily. I like being able to listen to them doing their jobs. They put it on the line every day and I respect them all greatly. How they can keep their cool in all situations impresses me. Thanks to the police scanner app for allowing me to do that.
Great but frustrating

We love listening to this nightly but it gets frustrating because it goes off from time to time and you have to exit and come back into it. Sometimes it goes to pause on it’s own and you have to reset it. Some nights it stays on all night which is awesome.
Having issues for about a week now

I think the app is great but for the past week I’ve been having issues where when I open the app, click on the sector I want to listen to and it opens but it does not play. I keep clicking on play but nothing happens. This app haven’t been updated for 9 months and needs to be. Please fix this issue.
Great App, but...

I like this app and use it from time to time when something odd is going on in my neighborhood. I’d give it a higher rating, but this morning while trying to find out more about a car parked in front of my house at 5am (which is odd) a really explicit video popped up. I was able to exit from it, but the ad went to full screen and pretty pornographic.
The scanner helps me know about my community

I like keeping up with happenings in my neighborhood. It is helpful in knowing what and where emergency vehicle are headed. It alerts me to roads, areas and places I need to steer clear so they can best do their jobs and I can continue with my own schedules safely.
