App Reviews

  • One of the best apps in the store

    By Arcanum1
    I've used this app for several years and gladly paid for the upgrade. I'm in public safety, and this app is my backup to my portable and pager. Here are a few notes on getting the most out of the app... The audio is a data stream (like listening to an Internet radio station). Therefore, it uses both battery/adapter power. Unless you have either unlimited data or a wifi connection, you might go over your limit. Also, it's a good idea to use a power adapter and not batteries. The audio typically comes from local scanners connected to the Internet. Therefore the quality may vary. Also, there may be a lag from the time a station transmits, until you actually hear it. All in all, it's a great app and highly recommended.
  • Great app

    By Fcpli
    One thing to understand with this app is that there is a delay and transmission. I use it to listen to the Fire Station my son is a Explorer at and he often text me concerning calls he is on when I’ve not even heard the call on the scanner. My best guess is that it is roughly a 13 to 15 minute delay but as long as you understand that it’s fantastic. I would have to pay roughly $400 for a high quality scanner to get real time dispatches and I would have to remain in the transmission coverage area to hear the call. This app allows me to hear the calls from anywhere I have a connection to cellular or the web. Well worth the upgrade to pro to get rid of the ads and I think the Pro version stays in the background better then the free app does.
  • Great app

    By Allie100000
    This app is awesome and addicting. I love being able to listen to other states police radios and being able to view all the police codes to figure out what they're saying. I also love that this plays in the background when you click out of the app! I don't like how sometimes the radios interfere or something so two people talk over each other. I also wish the chat was more like a chat though, like a chat room type of thing, so when you typed stuff it would just come up right away and someone could reply to whatever you said right away instead of how it looks now, like waiting for a comment back after you post it, like on Facebook.
  • The crime in my neighborhood

    By DaisysEden
    Is almost constant so when sirens screech by and or the police helicopter Is hovering overhead it was not uncommon to see me gathered around with neighbors wondering WHAT JUSY HAPPENED?? Then wait for the news if any. BUT now anytime a situation happens or I'm just curious about what's going on in my neighbor-hood or around my city I click on the police scanner widget and I can listen in on police calls in real time or literally within a few seconds and communication between dispatch, patrols and even AIR comes in so clear and precise, with other apps I would get so fustrated and stressed because of too many ads, static, channel changes etc.., but not anymore with this app!!! Thanks I really am satisfied with this download.
  • Had this app for years now.

    By Mc Sqweebs
    So let's begin with it works most of the time, but not the times some people would really need it to. For instance to help save some lives of the people the were unconscious after a roll over which had landed them in the river just putting their unconscious heads out of reach of rising waters. Sure I might have made it if I wasn't fiddling with getting my iPad app to give me a mile marker point through the pending ads that restrict you from listening or if it simply just does not want you to hear so the man at the other end pushes the stop button as you press play over and over. Well anywho good app next to that, be nice if they'd give the guy that presses the stop button a talk too about the importance of this app and to not do that.
  • This app is great but there's one thing

    By A LEO's Wife
    ..that I can't stand and it started about two weeks after I downloaded the app. I can listen fire & EMS in my county and I could listen to the sheriffs office also but now the sheriffs office won't play and the blue power button beside it only favorites isn't lite up like the other ones. Is there a reason for this or a way to turn it on. That is who my husband works through and I love being able to listen to this scanner while he is at work. In a sense it calms me because the scanner is always on at home on his days off so when he is gone and I still hear the scanner I feel better but can always listen an see what calls he is on.
  • Good app however...

    By Mitch Q
    It tends to crash a lot, and it's usually right after an Ad comes up, which is often. Sometimes it closes on me 3 times in 10 minutes. Also, an improvement suggestion would be to show the time in the time zone of the radio station that is selected, so if it is in pacific time the clock could adjust to that time instead of staying local time. Sometimes it buffers a lot which is frustrating because it's usually right around when something good is happening, and sometimes crashes or skips parts. It is a good, entertaining, informative app but has a few issues that if fixed would make it perfect.
  • Used to be the best

    By fmxer92
    I’ve been using this app loyally for years. I’ve had other scanner app’s, but have consistently used/relied on this app. Up until recently, I never had problems.. but starting a few months ago, this app flooded me with an insane amount of ad’s. The app became less, and less reliable, but the real downfall, was the endless amount of ad’s. Almost every ad freezes and won’t fully load, forcing me to close out the app, and reopen it in hopes the next ad will actually load, and allow me to close it. I gave the app some time, thinking it was a version flaw, but nope. It hasn’t changed a bit. So until I know this app is running smoothly like it had been for years, I’ll be using a different scanner app.

    I'm siting here tonight while in the mist of a tornado warning in North Texas...this is a common occurrence during the spring each year. This scanner app allows me to listen to all the active chatter from the local amateur radio operators in the area and it's much more informative than the local news channels... Well worth the piece of mind. I can listen to communications live and bake better decisions about what my family and I should do...I am glad I have this app and feel better about what goes on than listening to the TV Weather guys who can't stop talking and playing with their radar.
  • Most Accurate App

    By WFaulkner
    5-0 Radio Police Scanner is definitely the best police radio app I've used. Even on Thursday, when it was pretty quiet, I was able to listen for reports from downtown with very little lag time. I was able to put on my suit and climb on top of the Sykes building in time to see his car drive down Ashley St. I had planned for a lot of wind resistance, as my other apps are usually about three seconds behind, but I was able to fly to the Sykes roof and wait for the thief with two seconds to spare, perfect for diving onto the hood of his car. Five stars for impeccable accuracy.
