It just doesn’t work, got it to play some static and now it won’t play anything less than a minute later.
I’ve been a long time user of the Broadcastify Pro IOS app but unfortunately had to switch to a more stable scanner app. First, the Broadcastify Pro IOS app was a great and stable scanner app, but now after the latest update, the app gets out of sync. I hear two voices like an echo. The app keeps on playing even when I tap stop. The app gets out of sync with the listening time counter. I have to reboot my iPhone to make the app stop playing. By the time my iPhone reboots the transmition is over. So, I have switched to a different scanner app instead. Broadcastify is still installed on my iPhone but I do not use the Broadcastify app any more. The app is quirky and needs a major overhaul.
I have tried all the other apps and this one is the most stable and the tags are very well synced. The time lag doesn’t bother me. If I find out something 40 secs later who cares. The convenience out weighs the lag.
I realize that there is a process going from a scanner to the internet and then to the phone app, but I just downloaded this app so I could listen to my department’s calls while on vacation (as the chief I like to know what’s going on during major events) and when I tested it with my actual fire department issued radio, there was over 2 minutes of delay from the time the radio traffic was actually said until it was heard on the app and this was while using 1gig WiFi. The technology should be there to make this much faster.
Don’t waste your $
ios version Bought the Pro version. Worked great for months. Recently it loses my one Favorite. Now it keeps talking even after pushing the square stop button. Sometimes I get a second double voice out of synch like a quick echo. I have to delete the app to get it to stop. Then reload the app when the siren goes off. By the time I re-choose my Favorite the first notification is over.
Fix been broken for a while with feed offline
I’ve been a paid user for some time but recently the app went into a low res, large blurry fonts mode on my iPhone 8. Makes it painful to use.
Lights, fire trucks, sheriffs outside my door, going to my neighbors. Dog is freaked, I’m curious. Ah! I remember Broadcastify, does it still exist? I can’t get anything working on my phone, so download this for $2.99. By the time that’s done, everybody pulls away and I’m still listening to nothing. I thought the $2.99 was Pro and meant I got more but nope. Now I have to pay more money to hear the archives of what just happened. I ponied up $15.00 more bucks and finally listen to my neighborhood feed. I’m worried about my neighbors. Nothing. If they mention what was going on next door, I didn’t hear it. What I did hear seemed to be routine traffic stops. I don’t see fire, even though it’s on the page, maybe that’s the issue, although there was a sheriff car there. For the money, I should not only get access to previous broadcasts, but some kind of translation that tells me what happened. A list of what the numbers they are saying maybe? “On xyz street, a child has a seizure. On yxz street we have a robbery at Walmart. At zxy street we have domestic violence”. For $20.00, somebody can type this stuff out. You don’t need this version if you want to hear live and don’t want archives. Get the free one. You won’t get archives with this anyway, it’s another $30.00 a year. A lot to listen hopefully once.
Have only had this app for a couple of days. Very happy with it‼️I have some other scanner apps but this one has a much greater selection of audio feeds + the audio quality is quite good!
