Best Scanner Period 5/5
I have heard about every major event in the last year here far before any news outlet.
Would like to see:
-consistent audio recording while you listen to allow you to go back and pull something you heard or begin recording an event.
-chat rooms in each scanner channel to allow users to discuss events.
Love the app, confused as to todays update. 5/5
Got an update today to the app, but it appears to be from Mar 2016. Not sure if its an issue with my phone or something else. App works perfectly though so cant complain.
Awesome app but... 3/5
By Death shrouds
Hey man, the app is awesome but you need to program scanners with 800mhz. I don’t got a grand to go out and buy a 800mhz scanner. My city upgraded over the summer and still waiting for you to upgrade the program for 800mhz.
Please program for 800Mhz channels.
Abandoned app 1/5
This used to be the best scanner app available, but it has been abandoned in favor of development of their Android version.
Talk button 5/5
Can you add a talk button so people can talk into the scanner
Recently the city of New York changed frequencies. At this time all of the boros on the app are broadcasting Manhattan. Could you please look into this and hopefully make adjustments. Thank you.
Static static static 1/5
More often than not, all you can hear is static. The volunteer keeps his speaker too close to mic? Have reported to them but problem persists. Going back to 5-0
Doesn’t list all feeds 1/5
Comparing to 5-0 Radio, Scanner seems to miss some feeds, example check Adams County Colorado on both apps, you’ll see that 5-0 Radio shows more than Scanner.
Stopped working after ios10.0.3 1/5
Worked great after updating iOS no audio on any channels none of the COLUMBIA County pa works now
Portrait Mode! 5/5
It would be great if on the next update you could have the app go to portrait mode as well the phone mode,thanks.
Really useful 5/5
It's really useful when I was on the fire department, the calls on the scanner are just few seconds after when every one gets dispatched. I would recommend it to any first responders.
Was good 1/5
Was good now they removed 2 of the local police channels. I can’t get them any more. I am deleting it.
Avid listener 4/5
By William Waddell
I love this app but for some reason on my iPad and iPhone there doesn't appear to be a push notifications option so I get be notified of events like last nights shooting in Las Vegas .. Anyone know how to enable push notifications on these devices ?
App won’t work 1/5
App won’t work on iPhone 5S. I still get notifications. Just says “Connecting “ but it never does. And there is no Pro version to buy either.
Doesn't work on iOS 11? 2/5
By Hansel Jr
Doesn't work on iOS 11? Says connecting but doesn't stream
App works As Advertised! 4/5
By AH II
The application meets my expectations by far. I am wondering how we can have radio frequencies added?
Great App 5/5
First of all, thank you to the people who made this app possible and supplying the feeds.
Keeps you up to date on situations going on around the neighborhood. Always clear audio
Best app ever
Does not work!!! 1/5
By car #144
Does not work at all. Even just opening it up crashes your phone. Do not purchase!!!
Great app works perfect 5/5
This app really works good. I use to use Pocket Tunes for the scanner but they no longer support it. Keep up the great work this app rocks!!!
Good appt...BUT 4/5
It is easy to use and works well. But it does have a 15 second relay time and the 10 codes are not accurate for our area. Looking over them, it could cause a lot of confusion and worry for a standard person not in law enforcement
Was good but now 3/5
When I open a feed I always get cant connect with wifi on..... so now 3 stars
So bad 1/5
This ran like garbage on a 7
Very Happy Cat 5/5
By Unhappy cat
I LOVE THIS IT IS THE GREASTEST APP I HAVE EVER HAD..... It keeps me up on everything and alerts to any dangers me or my family may be near at all times.... Even severe weather the second it happens !! I would give it 500 stars if it would allow !!!!
I love this app but we need the original version for Palm Beach County fire
Scanner app deluxe 5/5
Good.. but please landscape it! 4/5
Like the app. Can switch to other apps that will use audio but not affect the audio of this app. Would be 5 stars if only... for the love of all things sacred... make this so it auto-landscapes on iPad devices! Would also like to see volume control that is separate from the iPad's master volume...
Good design- works well 4/5
By Trust worthy source
It has a basic design, simple lay out that is easy to navigate and has pretty much all the major channels. I tried like four other ones before this one and I like this one the best.
Great App!! But... 3/5
Wish you could search the addresses under the live feed Area Map.Also wish you could set different tones for favorite feeds for alerts.
Pretty good 3/5
This scanner used to be great but lately my areas are offline. Don't know why. They never used to be all down!
Not near me 1/5
By Kathy Tincher
I want Fayetteville/Oak Hill area!!!!
Very Staticky and no voice for FDNY 2/5
Usually when I hear fire trucks in my neighborhood I turn on my scanner and for some reason I hear nothing but staticky noices every few second or nothing is being said even though firetruck are responding to a call near by and I can seem to find out what's going on cause I love listening to the scanner is there a fix or something?
By Boner toner
VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF DISPATCH IS OFFLINE AGAIN.
Great scanner otherwise.
Used to be good 1/5
This app needs a UPDATE every time i am listening it cuts in and out It needs a fix and quick it used to be amazing I would not recommend this app anymore find something else
Really data efficient 5/5
It uses a very low amount of data while streaming. I barely broke 2MB listening for about 15 minutes. Very great!
Kills battery quick! 1/5
Kills battery faster than any other scanner I've had does. Sounds the same as the others I've used and have too so this will no longer be in my phone. Was trying to find one that had the favorites option and different areas, but this isn't worth it!
By Herb Smoker420
This is a great app to run in background while simultaneously streaming live pursuit video!!
I have it set for all alerts and it's been fantastical to see everything that's happening in the USA from tornados to NASA communications and every major incident in between.
My grandpa was a Detroit Cop and I have the utmost respect for all the first responders and what they do to protect us.
Thank you devs for outdoing my old 50 app. Amazing 🚔🚨
Best One 5/5
Agree with other poster. Time to thank you guys. You needed more reviews.
new Channel Request Dutchess 5/5
Can you please add the Dutchess county Police units and state police.?
Nice Fun 5/5
By Delaware Teacher
I enjoy listening to our wonderful police officers as they protect and serve. I'm thankful we don't hear the digital so they can do their job without our knowledge.
Great app 5/5
By Raptor 920
Not Bad 3/5
I listen to local City Police + County. Streaming always "Online".. however, occasionally conversations are extremely garbled (assuming different frequencies?). Also, there is no "settings" or "help" page, or FAQ. This makes it difficult to relay info or learn. Most importantly how Sleep Timer works :(
App is great, but when a Department changes frequencies how is it updated.
Hayward Fire and Police have changed to the 800
megahertz and I can no longer pick them up.
Since Worcester,MA. Changed in Jan-2017 this app has become boring. I might hear a tidbit now & then but most of the time I forget it's even on. My old portables also stopped working but I take the active frequencies in Public Safety and pause ch 856-23750 on one portable and 854-41250 into the other and I get more action then I do on this app. I'm going to try another app but it could Be the same. The Police do not want us listening but you can try Public Safety on your portable scanner and write down active channels and listen that way until you can afford the expensive models. Be safe and remember. No one knows more about scanning than I do....not even Donald Trump!
The best free scanner 5/5
Works great! Only a 4 sec lag from real scanner
Does NOT work half the tin at least 1/5
Don't work but half the time. It's not in real time either there is almost full 1 min sometimes 2 minute delay. Among plenty of other issues.
Scanner Honolulu 2/5
Can tune Baltimore but not Honolulu where I live. Just a constant buzzing. What's up??
By Sparky AL
It is about time that I thank all of the people involved in making this app possible.I like listening to Police and Ham radio from around the world,when I find the time to relax. This app is well laid out for the operator to use. I like the colors used that are easy on my eyes when using this app for long period of time. But most of all,I like the crisp clear Sound and the strong signal that this app pulls in from far away. This is technology at its best!
Missing calls 2/5
By Grand Island
What happened to the City of Buffalo, Erie County Sheriff police scanner??
Good app. 5/5
I love to hear my local police and other services in my area.
