Chew bird on 8/19/2018
This gets alot in many major cities- Digital included. Best I’ve seen.
Trams Nosrep on 8/18/2018
Doesn’t work!
Almost useless
prcketst on 8/18/2018
Can’t listen to a feed unless it already has a listener after paying $4 for the app? Seriously disappointed
Very Good
usstickees on 8/17/2018
I think the fact that you can set the scanner to your area no matter where you are. Works great!
Police scanner 5.0
Big boy2012 on 8/17/2018
Just Excellent...!
Excellent App
Tom Austin on 8/16/2018
Keeps me informed on police activity near my home. In this day and age, one can’t be too careful. App is intuitive and easy to search and use. Highly recommend!
Viserion on 8/14/2018
Awesome app
Excellent App
cronin135 on 8/14/2018
Easy to use. Know what’s going on when EMS is activated. Excellent app for information that may cause travels delays, or curious where the sirens are going to avoid those areas.
Jenevievej on 8/14/2018
This is one good app! I absolutely love the fact that it is so clear.
Great app.
HO1 on 8/13/2018
This app works great. I enjoy listening to local and nationwide stations.
Total SCAM
jlowder1992 on 8/12/2018
Don’t waste your money on this crap. Pure scam. It’s a local weather radio. Very unhappy. Do not waste your time and money. Wish there was a zero star option.
Station not working!
El Cajon listener on 8/10/2018
The Santee, California and El Cajon, California station stopped working. Only real reason I bought this app. Kind of disappointed.
Writing this under duress...
mojopeep on 8/9/2018
Love the app - hate being pestered to review - I purchased it but that isn’t enough......
Great , quick single channel scanner app
Jima151 on 8/8/2018
This app fills the immediate need to listen to a single broadcast of your favorite police- fire . I've been able to find all my channels .
ibadoeman on 8/2/2018
Thought it would have more police departments than they do. I live in Mississippi and apparently our PD’s are too technologically advanced for the scanner :-/
No local police
scandad on 7/31/2018
This has none of my area police department scanner feeds. The ones they had are gone now
Way simple
OrcishHunter85 on 7/29/2018
Great simple app I've had for over 5 years and use regularly. Unlike a real scanner it doesn’t show which agency is transmitting at the moment so you have to just know.
5-0 Radio
Jackedupandup on 7/29/2018
An entertaining app which has never given me any problems.
Rick6548 on 7/29/2018
Doesn't get encrypted stations.
Awesome scanner app
52397 on 7/29/2018
Love it. Listen to this app a lot
Great App
JoshuaLG on 7/29/2018
We used to have to have special training and a $200 radio just to hear local. This is amazing leap in technology.
Chicago PD
bobbyh007 on 7/28/2018
Why can’t I get Chicago Police zone 6? I used to be able to get it. Please make it a channel I can scan .
tateadams on 7/27/2018
The app has a lot of static! I can barely understand what’s going on and it’s hard to listen to when that’s all I hear unless there’s talking. It needs fixed
New subscriber
acman1975 on 7/25/2018
I just purchased this app and it Seems like every other station I select is unavailable
Love this app!!
KLUSTERFAK on 7/25/2018
I use this app a lot. I do a lot of freeway / highway driving so it helps me to navigate! It’s also fun to listen and see what’s happening around me! I would recommend this app to everyone! I e had it for years and it only gets better
Need more cities etc....
WindyCityDan on 7/23/2018
It’s a great app for anyone that wants to listen to mainstream cities and counties. However, I wish they would add a lot more smaller cities and towns in my area or state. Overall a good app, but can’t hit the five star button right now.
Kdhudsom on 7/23/2018
I love the scanner but it stays off line 75% of the time😡😡 Why is the scanner offline again😡😡😡I paid for it and it doesn’t work half the time !! Scanner offline again for the past 3 days🤬🤬 can you tell me why ? I can pick up Tulsa Oklahoma every time but Horry County Police in SC where I live is offline constantly !!
Only app I’ve had since ‘08
thatoneguythatrocks on 7/23/2018
Seriously, it’s been a decade, and I’m still listening. Only app I’ve downloaded on every iPhone I’ve owned, and will continue to do so.
It works!!!
808boys on 7/18/2018
Stay tuned in with this ap. Find out what’s going on in your neighborhood in real time.
Huliothefirst on 7/18/2018
Smooth, clear, easy to use
Netflix phooey on 7/17/2018
Used this app in 3 states where I've lived. Works great.
ChooChee on 7/16/2018
Listing for years
Cape cod smoker on 7/16/2018
This is the “real deal “ scanner app. When I hear some police/ fire activity in my area, I open the app to see what going on.
Lost My Feed In My County After Purchase
seldmsmiles on 7/15/2018
Is there any way to tell the person that runs the Lake County Public Safety feed in Ohio the service is mostly garbled followed by long static noise? Whoever is running this feed is doing a poor job at best. I bought this app to hear the feed in Lake County, Ohio. The person running the feed said his dad is sick or something and can no longer manage the feed. Why is my ability to listen to my community subject to the misfortune of someone I don't even know? Rip off. Update. Now, whoever took over the feeds for Lake County Ohio, doesn’t supply a great feed and it seems to be HEAVILY censored. Constant static and heavily garbled transmissions interspersed with long periods of super loud, annoying static. Be aware that if you purchase this app, your feed may disappear without notice. Also be aware that the producers of this app offer NO support and ignore requests for support. If I could rate negative stars, this would be a minus 2, at best.
Marley mark on 7/12/2018
Love this app
An Amazing app
Freebird312 on 7/10/2018
Been using this for 2 years listening to the local police scanner
A Glimpse into what’s really happening...
Me78457654 on 7/10/2018
This app works well! It gives you a glimpse into what’s really happening around you. I would recommend finding the police codes online so they’re more specific to you/location. I also upgraded, and it’s been nice to be ad free. It’s like having a HAM radio all the time! Definitely worth getting.
Waste of Money!!!
Cupcake1106 on 7/10/2018
This app is a waste of money. The feeds do not work.
My favorite app!
Friendsofpopos on 7/9/2018
Whenever I’m home this scanner is on. I have many friends in law enforcement and it makes me feel like I can help while listen. This app is my safety blanket! Keep it up! I am disappointed how the app crashes at time, but I figure that’s what I get for running the app for long periods of time.
Great Scanner App!
543298764569011 on 7/7/2018
I’ve used a couple different apps in the past and this one works great! In addition to getting all the feeds I want in an easy interface. I really like the sleep timer.
Enjoy listening
pancreatic cancer survivorv on 7/4/2018
Enjoy listening easy to move around to different cities and states. Thank you
Not Happy
Nikiedoodles on 7/3/2018
I upgraded to the Pro version to get rid of the pesky ads and now I cannot access my local scanner feeds. In fact, with the pro version there are zero feeds near me what-so-ever!!! The free version had my local PD and Fire departments...I just couldn’t listen to anything without being interrupted every 30 seconds by an ad. I would like my money back please.
Out of cell service? No worries
Truckman98802 on 7/2/2018
I drive a lot over mountain passes where cell service is lost. With recording feature one can fall back on music that was previously recorded. This is so nice. This feature only available in the “Pro” version.
Great app!!
Swgmolchr on 7/2/2018
Listen to it often, definitely work a try if you’re thinking of downloading it.
The best!
Rob7787 on 7/1/2018
This is by far the best police scanner on the app store
Love this app!!!
63V on 6/30/2018
Please add LAPD Central Bureau feed. Thank you.
Awesome app
Michigan's Upper Peninsula on 6/29/2018
Have it on my iPad and iPhone, works great with no problems. Highly recommend.
One of the best scanner apps to have
Thuja@84015 on 6/27/2018
I use to buy a scanner every few years, now I only use this app
