Please consult your local laws before using this app outside of your home. Is it fake? ======= It's very real. Each feed comes from a person in that region with an expensive police scanner sharing the signal with you via the internet. Real-time ======= The delay between the real radio feed and this app is only a few seconds depending on buffering and internet speeds.

  • 5-0 Radio is great!!!!! 5/5

  • CVSR Railroad 5/5

    By Trainman Santa
    We love using this app to stay tuned to our railfans all over the country! It would be really sweet to see our freqs in the east-central US, 160.965 and 161.325, Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad operating in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park!
  • The Best 5/5

    By dctoboston
    This is one of the best apps available. 5 STARS
  • Interesting app but 4/5

    By Sgt.Ian3406
    It’s a good app and all but there’s one thing. I don’t think that the scanner feeds are real. I think this for two reasons, One how did that even get access to almost every police/rescue service dispatch radio in the world? Second of all I’ve heard them say the same things over and over again. Still interesting though.
  • So Far So Good 4/5

    By Russwall
    I downloaded a few days ago. I can listen to the sheriffs department but not the city police. But it works well just want more local departments added.
  • THE BEST 5/5

    By Fishseptecales
    This app is amazing. It has so many places to choose from. It is amazing. And plus it’s free. Get the app. Trust me you won’t regret it.
  • Constantly crashing 3/5

    By VanillaThunder618
    I’ve had this app for years and liked it til lately. Constantly crashing now... I’ll keep it just for the local weather spotters when threatening weather is present.
  • 5-0 Radio 5/5

    By Gunsel 1
    Excellent app!!!
  • Great app to find out what’s going on local. 5/5

    By Pre user
    I have had this app for quite a few years. Always enjoy listening to it when I have time. It’s good to know what’s going on around the city. You can listen to it in the background while online or FB or even playing games.
  • Always offline. 2/5

    By Little Kati
    Can’t get my police, Sheriff in my county. It’s offline. Worked when I first got it now useless to me.
  • 5-0 5/5

    By ron47_52
    The bestest scanner app of all time.
  • Less adds. More fun 4/5

    By misIreland
    Adds make me feel crazy can You fix that?
  • Doesn’t have my town 3/5

    By If fjords
    I see the use for the app but they used to have the station for my town of Van Buren Maine and it suddenly disappeared for no reason. It’s a shame...
  • Works good 5/5

    By Mrs.1Monster77
    Listen to it everyday...
  • Dependable and User Friendly 5/5

    By 14SimplePleasures
    This app is great: always opens quickly and stays connected well.
  • 💯 5/5

    By atmrocky
  • The best police app by far 5/5

    By Bigphildrill
    This Application allows you to listen to fire and police activity in your area and something major is going on and it was totally free
  • Very useful 5/5

    By perfecto899017
    Great for the weather and to check in to what’s going on around my area and other areas. Simple easy to use my only negative at the moment is once in a while it just closes than I have to restart otherwise works great when it doesn’t. I’d recommend this app though.
  • Good app 4/5

    By blunite6
    Although remember it is only as good as the scanner feed to the internet. Great info on what’s happening in the real world, unfiltered by media. If you don’t hear your local area law enforcement it is most likely because their radio traffic is encrypted. So enjoy he freedom of listening until the day comes when all LE radio traffic will encrypted.
  • Usually good 4/5

    By Cruzeman11
    I like this app. But it does have it’s problems. It’s just not this app however. Problem is that for the Des Moines Police it doesn’t always work kind of like a server is down or something. Happens fairly frequently and seems like it’s down for 24+ hours at a time. No I don’t have the time to listen 24/7 but it’s kind of a pain when I do and no stream. Yet other Police are working just fine. Someone needs to see if something can be done about this. Otherwise a great app and would upgrade if that could be corrected.
  • Awesome app! 5/5

    By PeaceLoveArizona
    I love this app! I saw something about an upgrade, would consider paying for the upgrade!
  • 5-0 Radio Scanner 5/5

    By KittyG48
    Best scanner app. Love it.
  • Nice app 5/5

    By Almost taste it
    Just like having a regular scan tin your pocket.
  • Great Free Version 5/5

    By Ximmi148
    Haven used this for several years now. Love that I can listen to the feeds from just about anywhere they're available.
  • Awesome Listening 5/5

    By DeaN4U2C
    I am fascinated with flight, and enjoy communications between air traffic control, and pilots. This tunes me into those communications. For people focused on a career where radio communication would be essential, this is an excellent tool. This is realtime communications, and how things transpire on the job, be it a pilot, fireman, police officer, or another occupation that relies on two-way. Give it a listen. If you aspire toward any of these occupations, you will appreciate it.
  • Not as good a heads-up device as I thought 4/5

    By Apt 1415
    I thought I’d be able to use this to hear if friends of mine and gotten pulled over
  • Works well 5/5

    By Wild Billl
    It works as intended. A lot of apps don’t. Has our local sheriff’s net and it relays as it happens, not time delayed. Have not had any issues, always opens quickly and hasn’t crashed. Not really much more to say than that. Does what it’s designed to do reliably.
  • Above Average 5/5

    By jcpc202
    Easy to use. Not much action in my rural area.
  • Love this app 4/5

    By Jh93066
    It’s been so helpful to be able to hear what had been happening during our fires here in California. I felt so much more informed and comfortable knowing what was was going.
  • Great app, PLEASE HELP!!! 5/5

    By 420tokersmoker
    Can you please find Las Vegas Metro’s new feed? Or fix it, I used to just keep it on in the background all day long, Anytime I heard a helicopter or siren near by I automatically just reached my phone. It was such a good app that I almost feel naked without it. Please try to get them back online ASAP. Thanks
  • Aggressive adds 1/5

    By beamwah
    Adds are very aggressive often rendering app inoperable or requiring cold restart. Many channels listed there with listeners but you can’t connect to them.
  • Free Version No Good 1/5

    By Unimpressed2014
    Used to be fine. Now it won’t hold a station. The pop up ads are full screen with no X in the corner to get rid of it.
  • Mystery 5/5

    By Slow-Moe
    I’m a mystery and crime writer. I sometime have 5-0 on when brainstorming a story for mood and to focus my imagination.
  • Good App 4/5

    By Kis1360
    I really like this app hearing about what’s going on and all I just wish they didn’t do the occasional encrypted deal so you know exactly what’s happening. Sometimes it also won’t play no matter how many times you click on the button. Overall entertaining.
  • Handy little tool 3/5

    By Admin NCO
    I like it
  • Oh 🇮🇳 Missing 😻 3/5

    By 🌲Drakulaa🌲

  • Great app 5/5

    By swagrexv2
    I love this app. I love listening to our men and women in blue.
  • Its free 5/5

    By Blah blah student
    Cant complain. Its free and provides great information about your surrounding environment. I hope they aggressively pursue new feeds.
  • Excellent 5/5

    By G876431
    Without a doubt the best scanner app I’ve downloaded. I get all my local channels plus classics like Chicago PD. Highly recommended. The ads are not bad at all plus you can listen while your phone is in sleep mode.
  • Missing my city. 2/5

    By Csp6056
    Great app. I downloaded the app so I can listen to my local police channel. This app doesn’t have my local channel. They need to add cedar city utah(iron county). I hope you can add the city.
  • Decent Not Perfect 4/5

    By TenFowerrrr
    Does what it says mostly. I don't mind reasonable ads as the app provides a useful service. However one frequent ad is an invasive pop up that is very difficult dismiss and almost always offers something spammy,low-value, or a downright ripoff. That has to go to earn full stars. Only other complaint is that some local scanner stations aren't available—this is not a fault in the app, an increasing number of departments are switching to encrypted comms. These do not facilitate public awareness or transparency. If your jurisdiction does this encourage them to stop. Also traditional radio is less expensive.
  • Easy to use and a great app 5/5

    By ScannerAppIsGreat
    Like my title, “Easy to use and a great app”.

  • 5.0 Is 4.0 4/5

    By Cob706
    App is a 4.0 on a scale of 0 to 5.0 and allows me to keep up with fire departments I have been a member of and towns where I lived over my military career. Easy to use!
  • Literal life saver 5/5

    By Rambling Stoner
    Libeling in a high crime area this app is a literal life saver! Thank you!
