Best scanner app out there. Altho it surprises me that my local scanner has very little activity on it....so not so much exciting going on in my area (which is FINE BY ME!). But I do enjoy listening to Chicago’s gun free zone over the weekend. Yeah.
Interesting and informative to hear what the police have to deal with. Educational!
Doesn’t pick up police like advertised
Thank you for making such a simple app that does what it’s supposed to.
We live in an area of Texas that gets very frequent threats of severe weather and the app allows us to listen in to our local SKYWARN storm spotter network live. We’ve had as much as 5 MINUTES of additional warning prior to sirens or warnings from TV/radio!!
The Pro version is more than worth the price
Now that I have new hearing aids with Bluetooth connectivity - never leave home without it and don’t have to listen to “shut that thing off” LOL One suggestion - add a link to tv- news channels for major events.
Great to listen to when you actually get a good feedback. Sometimes it’s brutal to try and figure out what is going on. Chicago is the best. To say it nicely it is a war zone. Civilians should be allowed to pack a concealed weapon for protection and believe me the police would get some well deserved rest.
It says that this app has access to the aircraft bands, where are they??
I've been using this app for a couple of years and am very happy with all the station choices. I've tried similar apps but this one is the best.
