Alerting to hear
Txsgurl on 5/23/2018
I listen to what's going on in my neighborhood as well as counties of those I love. Thanks for providing this.
Lacks info on site
TruD@T on 5/22/2018
I paid for the upgrade to receive nothing new. I wish they had a list of scans before I wasted my money. My locations had no additional locations (not even 1) or the one I specifically wanted. The website is the worst I have seen, so should have expected this outcome with the app.
David in Africa on 5/21/2018
Great I bought the pro version and can only say Bravo! Works exactly as advertised. Truly great app.
Online- offline
drews105 on 5/20/2018
The app goes offline to frequently. Takes too long to come back online. I wish this would be fixed. I paid for upgrade thinking this would not happen. Now only if someone would read this comment. Again, it goes offline and when it comes back it’s the wrong frequency.
alexa-catta123 on 5/20/2018
Why is it not working 😩
Love it
Momofa6y/o on 5/20/2018
I enjoy listening to find out what's going on in the city. And pray for everyone.
If it works it's great
Fatgirlslim132 on 5/20/2018
Troup county Georgia stopped working 05/16/18. AGAIN!!!
Good stuff
VAMPIRE-BUNNY on 5/19/2018
Ok people, listen up. This is real time crap being dealt with all the time. Day and night. Thank the people that care enough to try and keep it under control. Dispatch personal are funny and serious. Fun to listen to but so sad our youth are turning out the way they are.
Best radio app
TomDrake1 on 5/19/2018
I bought this app to listen to relaxing music while I worked on my iPad. It does a wonderful job and start it up every day when I start working.
Great App
GSLINGER on 5/16/2018
Fits needs exactly.
Love it
Christy Leigh Wilson on 5/14/2018
I love listening to my local. Very interesting in what you can find out
Like, but crashing issues
GGCT68 on 5/13/2018
I like listening to local emergency calls, but I don't like it when the app crashes while I'm listening! It definitely is an app issue, and not the feed going offline - I checked a website that also runs the feed, and it was up and running fine. Tried deleting and reinstalling the app, but the crashing issue still exists. Sent messages to app support 3 times, and received no replies. Very frustrating.
Cannot get my area
ketchiak on 5/11/2018
The codes for my area are not available. Bought this for nothing. Make sure that your codes are listed prior to purchasing.

Svkohn on 5/11/2018
It is what it is, and yes I like the way It works. No issues. Keeps me up to date on the real happenings before it gets to the press.
It works !
Silvershark69 on 5/10/2018
It works very well for me, keeps me informed!
Lgtaz on 5/9/2018
Is the best and cool app
This is how I get to sleep!
HerRoyalHiney on 5/8/2018
I listen every night before I fall asleep, and I already know what happened overnight, and what the headlines will be the next morning! This is the best app for listening in to local police dispatch!
Good, but I want a refund.
Dogs of 2014/2015 on 5/7/2018
I WANT A REFUND!!! It’s a good app, however my police channel doesn’t appear on it (Fairfax County Police) so I would like a refund please, Apple won’t provide it for some reason.
Great App
IrukandjiSurvivor on 5/6/2018
This app is great. It has lots of useful features (like skins and sleep timer). More overseas channels would be nice though I know that's a tough one.
niko0 on 5/5/2018
Didn’t add any stations that were already free. Don’t waste your money.
Great app
1Grumpyoldman on 5/2/2018
No problem with this app

Echoking1 on 4/27/2018
Great app you are able to listen to almost every jurisdiction anywhere.
Needs More
TheIanCrowd on 4/27/2018
I like the channels it has in my area. Unfortunately I miss a lot going on unlike a real dedicated scanner.
My 2 cents.
DaveJazzBass on 4/20/2018
There’s other type of scanner programs out there but this one is the best.
Great App
Aedwar on 4/17/2018
Listen often. Just love it!
Not my area
Koettel on 4/17/2018
I cannot rate how well this app works since there isn’t any feeds from my area. I’ve requested a refund, but haven’t received it as of this moment.
Used to be my favorite... Now
sharks boy on 4/16/2018
This used to be my favorite app, now, I can’t get my local feed. Even though it might say 40-100 listeners, it says 0kbs and it won’t load. This has been ongoing for about a month or two. It’s complete garbage now. Wish I hadn’t paid for the app.
Love this app
Vickmac on 4/14/2018
Love to find out what is going on in my neighborhood!
Third shift sleeper on 4/14/2018
Works as expected!
Great App!
CountryGirl19667 on 4/13/2018
Really like being able to find out what is going on close to home.
thefordz1 on 4/11/2018
Would like to see Jacksonville Sheriff Office and Clay County Sheriff Office added. Florida.
Great App
Joe A5639 on 4/11/2018
Easily one of my favorite and most used apps! Berkley co &state police, SC and Summerville, SC police have been off line for quite a while and I'd love to see them come back online. Maybe it's an easy fix 5-0 could look into? It'd be greatly appreciated. Highly Recommend!
5-0 Radio Pro
TradKnitter on 4/9/2018
Wish there were an actual tuning dial so when something major is happening I wouldn’t lose “the rest of the story” when the app decides to scan. That’s the main improvement I would make and I see from other reviewers that it’s been mentioned before. I guess my mentioning it is worthless since the developers are content to force me to write a review so I’m not bothered by the pop up asking for one and haven’t put the tuning dial on that reviewers keep asking for. Oh well. Yeah. Nice app. Tuning dial would make it better. Okay? Okay.
Better Than Some I've Tried
MyPops53 on 4/8/2018
I've used 5.0 for 3-4 years now. I don't use it daily, but when I do it lets me know what is happening in my area. Nice little app.
AmmaC on 4/8/2018
It's ok, wished it had more local channels.
Love it!
JackM8431 on 4/8/2018
While working, love to have it on in the background.
Great App
ketch834 on 4/7/2018
I have used it for a lon time now. Really, really a great App.
Police scanner app
Sparky AL on 4/7/2018
I enjoy listening to the Police,Ham Radio and some of the bar rocking blues radio stations. The reception is crystal clear.
Best Radio App
Blazer202 on 4/6/2018
Been enjoying it for years and never came across any issues! 😄
Good when it works
Cheese Mcgee on 4/4/2018
My app has been working poorly lately. It used to be fantastic but my local frequency won’t play anymore. It shows listeners but every time I hit play it gives me the spin and won’t work.
Hyzoot on 4/3/2018
I was using the free app for a month was frustrated with the ads and PARTIAL transmissions, some transmissions are lost or given in and out. Some responses are heard without an initial call. So I upgraded to PRO. NO CHANGE! No more feeds are offered for my county, just EMS/Fire. NOT WORTH THE MONEY.
I am a Stringer and use this app for its clarity
sledge 128 on 4/2/2018
Ave nice app easy to use just wish it could scan all channels at one time that would be great
Great app for monitoring
Mrs Beasty on 4/1/2018
I use it to monitor fire calls for local fire dept.
Crucial App! Important and Necessary to boot.
BlakePeace on 3/27/2018
Title pretty much says it all. There are many good apps, nice to have, fun to play and generally creative. But this app goes into the realm of necessity for us as we live in a fire prone mountainous demographic. Being able to monitor fire in our area let’s us know the status of a fire faster than any radio, tv or internet can provide. Everyone I recommend this to LOVES it also. Thank you developers for giving me such an import and crucial tool for my phone.
It used to be good
Mack76tre on 3/27/2018
This is just like all the rest of them. It used to be good. But then the pierce county sheriff feed went off line. So I started listening to The Washington state patrol feed. Now it’s off line. Garbage. Straight garbage. I just deleted it. If I can’t hear my local feeds what is the use
Dude15111 on 3/26/2018
I love this ap, I like knowing what is going on in my neighborhood.
Stopped working in January ‘17
pillr96 on 3/26/2018
Have used this app a couple years. In a snow storm it quit working & has not worked since. Disappointing as this is one I paid for.
Good when working
Clown alley on 3/23/2018
I love the ap. I used it on the road at night as a delivery manager. It helped to know what was happening so I could redirect carriers from potential harm or situations that where unfolding to keep them safe. Things are much scarier at night with not a lot of lighting or people so it has been a helpful tool so that they can return later to an area. I give it 3 stars because it crashes a lot. It has gotten better.
5.0 Review
Rob Heyde on 3/23/2018
Have been pleased with the way this application works in my area, would recommend.
Jasonswell on 3/23/2018
I love this app but it constantly glitches so it sounds broken and you can’t understand anything. Fix that and it’s golden.
