Offline Blues 3/5
I'm glad I didn't pay for upgraded version. It's great when it works but it's offline 80% of the time. Disappointed.

Cuts out constantly. No point in having it
Poorly Conceived UI and UX 3/5
By Shane B
The app does what it says, and we all know this is the best general site for accessing shared scanner feeds. But it seems like no one even gave this app any forethought. When you have a feed playing there’s no way to click back over to it easily without manually tracking the same exact feed down again, no indicators whatsoever. It should act like any other audio player and have a play/pause button and link back to the feed.
I have been inundated with spam emails since downloading this app!!! Beware!!!
Great scanner but glitching lately 3/5
This is a great app but it’s been glitching as of lately. (Read more)
First off, this app is awesome. It is so easy to use and provides hours of entertainment/information without having to keep it on screen. There are not a bunch of trashy adds which is much appreciated and there is a huge selection of cities/providences.
Really does make the old days of searching through the original handheld scanners seem so difficult.
However, it does not have all the codes like the website so I’m still having to jump over to the site on google in order to decipher the lingo.
Also, I’ve had an issue where it stops playing. I know it’s not the channel because it plays perfectly when I check it on the website.
Beside that, I highly recommend this app!
City Display 5/5
For the next update can you please put city display. That is how it is on android. Thanks.
Please support tags. 5/5
Otherwise my second favorite scanner app.
Useful program but? 1/5
Useful program but, I'm not seeing any way to get the Broadcastify program to provide alert notifications. Am I missing something? If someone is paying for the premium account, the basic program should provide notifications and alearts. I'm open to the possibility that I have missed something however unlikely that may be.
Too many ads 1/5
Also the controls on the lock screen don't work.
Honestly the best scanner 5/5
By Peaceful Enemy
This is honestly the best police scanner. They have their own website also. The major benefit of broadcastify is they offer alerts and descriptions of high priority events that you can check under alert feeds. And when swiping through different scanners if they have an important alert it will be visible with a summary of the events taking place.
Needs more functions 3/5
Please add the option to manage common feed options like adding alerts from the mobile app! I hate having to go through the hassle of the website to add an alert if I'm on the app..
audio playback issues; ADS😡 2/5
too many ads. and i'm a premium subscriber. almost all ads irritate and frustrate me to no end.
also the pause button on the ios lock screen does nothing. audio keeps playing even if u hit pause and the symbol turns into a play button.
Video ads 1/5
A loud video ad comes up every time you start the app. I deleted this horrible app-which didn't even have our local services.
Great interface, poor functionality 3/5
By My Chinchilla is Adorable
I really like this app and have a paid account. Other apps do have better functionality and options (like a sleep timer). The thing I like best about this app is the search by current location. You may not know what county you are in when traveling and this is a great function. This app, however, does not play well with other apps and I usually lose audio and have to restart when most other apps with audio kick in. I also have to restart when switching from wifi to cellular data.
Live Chat section while listening 2/5
Great App for mobile use, instead of carrying a geeky handheld around.Wish there was an update to enable playing the background.
Popups are way too annoying! 2/5
Select a channel - get a pop-up.
Needs a better UI 3/5
By K Leininger
Would gladly pay to lose the ads. The UI isn't very attractive. Opening graphic doesn't fill up the iPhone 6+ screen. Make the app brighter and nicer. I hate that it stops when you move off of wifi. That should be an option that can be toggled on/off.
Remove Ads for Premium Subscribers 2/5
This app should remove the advertisements for premium Broadcastify subscribers.
Love this! 5/5
I have a paid broadcastify acct and the app is the perfect companion! Flawless! I do not get pop ups due to my act status, but my secondary 'free' scanner apps all have them. Not sure why some rank apps low solely on an annoying industry norm.
Audio too low. 1/5
Great easy to use interface but....
I have my iPad turned all the way up and the audio is so low I have to be within a foot of the iPad to hear anything. TURN THE VOLUME UP! The website is louder. I would have just stuck with that and not purchased the app had I known how bad the audio was. Disappointed!
For next update 3/5
Great App. Only thing that would make it better is if you could see the town name that is talking so that in regional areas you can see which town is talking
Great app..... but has a few issues 3/5
This app is great! I enjoy listening to the feeds on here but one problem, most times I turn my phone screen off after turning the app on, the app crashes..... Completely stops working and won't open for a few mins.
Works great 5/5
By Ton 'o sut
I like it. Easy to use. No issues.
Just OK 2/5
Easy to use. About the same as the other apps. I expected more since they host the the scanner feeds. No access for feed providers to make adjustments to their own feed. That is mainly what I was looking for.
The pop ups are terrible 1/5
By Josh d from ny
The amount of pop ads you get when using is terrible. I'm deleting this app and finding another app.
Worked great until the update! 2/5
This app was great before the last update. I continuously experience it crashing almost always now.
Can not turn off 1/5
App has totally hosed my iPad as there seems to be no way to turn off the broadcast at will.
I cannot listen or enjoy other apps without hearing the radio broadcasts. Simple on or off is required.
I like the app, But I would like to see an alert push notification that a feed has gone into alert, or if the feed gets a high number of listeners. Also can you put a selector switch in there so we actually get to choose what background color we want. Please fix ASAP.
Nice app 5/5
Needs a Right/Left channel selector
Dutchess County Channel Request asap 3/5
Please add the Amenia FIRE please
Whole service a rip off database of station and frequencies minimal 1/5
Radioreference used to be a very good database of frequencies but today it's an outdated poorly managed service with a very outdated database of frequencies so it's spin off scanner streaming service is pretty much in the same shape. if u ask a question you get rude answers referring you to a forum with even ruder moderators. skip this app and beware the premium radioreference.com service.
Free Online. App Full of Ads 1/5
Just go online where you're not inundated with a slew of irrelevant ads. This app is garbage. Apple needs to start monitoring how ads are displayed before the app is approved.
Not happy 1/5
Loose the ads!!!
Was going to buy a subscription for archives! But that won't remove ads either!
Great app!!! 5/5
Very cool app!
By Laeadville Fire Dept
When you are doing anything with this app adds pop up. If you turn on any feed adds will play & not stop until you open it up & hopefully choose the correct place to close the add or you will open the advertising & the feed will close. There are several other free apps that offer feeds with out annoying pop ups that close the feed. I was very disappointed & expected more as the Broadcastify website is great & you can listen to feeds on it with most phones without any pop ups.
Less than ideal 1/5
I'm a huge fan of RadioReference and Broadcastify, and premium member. This app leaves much to be desired, full screen ads within seconds of starting up a feed. The website is a much better experience, with other 3rd party native iOS apps also providing a better experience.
Simple easy to use interface 5/5
By Tulips and Puppies
Simple and easy to use interface allows me to listen to the feeds that I like. I like that I am able to setup my favorites in a personalized list. I'm also able to listen to my local police department overnight with no drops. Well done!
Ugly app...now with ads!! 2/5
Looks like an old Nintendo game interface. Annoying ads pop up frequently and don't go away easily - some not until a countdown timer ends. Only good feature is a "Feeds with Alerts" that shows feeds with a significant activity underway. Not enough of a feature to overcome the ads and ugly interface, however.
Fantastic App 5/5
This app works great!! Simple and easy to use. Once I signed in with my premium account no ads were displayed.
Ad Central!! 2/5
Been waiting a long time for this app to come out and I have to admit, I'm kinda disappointed. All the feeds are here and seem to work good, it's just over saturated with ads. Give us a break!!
Ads are a problem.
Works great! 5/5
Had no issues signing into my RR account and listening to feeds. I haven't had any ads pop up probably since I'm a premium member.
So disappointed 2/5
I expected so much more. The RR/broadcastify websites are incredibly useful. This app looks straight out of a 1990's geocities website. The interface is clunky and ugly, and the ads are obnoxious. I would much rather have a paid high-quality app to supplement the site than a free app like this.
Great app but bad 3/5
It's a great app but wow never ever seen so many adds on a app before.
Obscene amount of advertisements 1/5
By Mark M27
Ridiculous amount of pop up ads every time you return to the menu from a scanner a timed pop up advertisement takes over the screen.
Furthermore, I have listened to several different scanners and its hit and miss on if the scanner works
Obtrusive Ads 2/5
By Mr William K.
Like the layout of the app, but the full-page ads are unacceptably obtrusive. Why not have a full-time ad at the bottom of the app screen?
Ad Machine 1/5
Are you for real? Each time you select a feed a pop up ad appears. Uninstalled within 5 minutes
