App Reviews

  • Ability to edit favorites!!!

    By Wx watcher
    Please add the ability to edit Favorites!! Like re-arrange the order of favorite list along with ability to delete feeds without having to open the feed to remove (like Safari edit function for bookmarks). Better yet, put feeds in alpha numeric order as they are added. Increase new feed listings to show the 50 newest feeds thus covering a wider time span. I would most certainly pay for the Pro version if these functionality items were available. This would also motivate the free version users to upgrade.
  • Honestly the best scanner

    By Ima Starboy
    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.
  • Great scanner but glitching lately

    By HeatherKansan
    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!
  • Poorly Conceived UI and UX

    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.
  • Broadcastify

    I suppose it’s ok but it is supposed to be a Scanner app so what’s the point if it keeps going off-line or if it is subscriber dependent? I have the free app as well as paying for another one because I couldn’t get the locations I wanted because it kept going off-line and Speaking of which I keep stopping every few seconds to few minutes to 10, 15, 20 minutes it decides to quit working just shut off so that I have to keep going back and restarting it so what’s the point. It would be great if it actually worked
  • Love this!

    By NEChick
    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.
  • Needs a better UI

    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.
  • Great app..... but has a few issues

    By Grif0801
    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.
  • Useful program but?

    By wa4wga
    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. WA4WGA
  • audio playback issues; ADS😡

    By Doug526
    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.
