    this is the best app I've seen in some time as a matter of fact I just switched to police scanner premium on the 6th of February and I'm just now beginning my yearly service so basically what I like about the plan is I don't mind paying the price for it every year it's a lot better than having to pay on a monthly schedule but I think this works out fine because having a yearly subscription will save me a whole bunch of money every month basically I can pay one price and that's it.

  2. guest-avatar

    This app is trash. False advertising, and is not legit. Only covers a area of where I live from 30 miles. I live in a city, and alot more goes on Even the 30 miles away had nothing. Sat there and listen to it for 30 mins. Just static, especially during that time frame, emergency vehicles were on route

    Way to expensive! I tried the 3 day trial and it glitched out on me so many times I couldn't use it. Then would not let me cancel! So I'm paying $45 a month on an app I can't even use. Ridiculous!

  4. guest-avatar

    Since I've downloaded this app, I find it to be a good alternative to having the television on! I serves as a less distracting type of background noise.

  5. guest-avatar

    For the Los Angeles area it performs just fine. They offer many stations. Reception is clear and they have the codes available and easy to access.

  6. guest-avatar

    The notifications are all the time and it tends to switch channels done times. But it's decent enough.

  7. guest-avatar

    UK listener great app don't know why people complain about the ads they don't bother me becouse I use my ears to listen not my eyes only time I see the ads is when I change channel

  8. guest-avatar

    just a godzilla with internet connection


    Excellent app. Love listening before bed, helps me fall asleep.

  9. guest-avatar

    Excellent intelligence report in real time that I can monitor easily while my team is in the field robbing and killing the targets we are paid to acquire

  10. guest-avatar

    Great app to see whats going on in local or far away municipalities, especially when something interesting happens.

  11. guest-avatar

    If your into knowing what's going on around you this is the perfect app. Not only do you hear the scanner from multiple locations across the nation but the app explains what the gives codes mean on a code chart (specific to each region it's broadcasting). I don't even have premium and I'm enjoying the experience.

  12. guest-avatar

    Love this app. I can actually hear my county's scanners

  13. guest-avatar

    Pretty kool to know whats going on around other places and to be notified for the calls. Some major things you think you would hear about on the news but nope havent heard a thing about them.

  14. guest-avatar

    I love this app a lot! It's really cool to be able to see live reports of police scanners from around the world. Would it be possible to add a way to search for codes so I don't have to scroll up and down the list to see what it meant? Other then that it is a great app. Very simple and easy to use. I've already suggested to my friends and family!

  15. guest-avatar

    This is a great app to keep up on what is happening around your home. Whether it be crime, medical, weather or at your neighborhood. The only down fall is when your station goes off the air or changes without letting you know! This helps with your personal safety.

  16. guest-avatar

    Subscription seems rather pricey however after skipping past the trial offers you have full access to the streams. Even provides a table full of brevity codes based on jurisdictions so you can identify what is being said. Continues to stream while outside of app as well and has a pretty large database of streams from multiple countries.

    I have tried about 5-6 scanner app's and found this to be the best one. I am a normal bloke from the UK and this app does what it says. So you wont be upset when you try it the only upsetting point is when you turn it off to get some sleep. A BIG 5*

  18. guest-avatar

    Near perfect. First and only "police scanner" Ive seen that alerts you to listen into live events. One flaw though, it only cover parts of certain counties. If it can cover all of a county that would be great.

  19. guest-avatar

    Too expensive. Only available by subscription, not a lump sum price.

  20. guest-avatar

    Very accurate! Only about 30 second behind real time scanner

  21. guest-avatar

    This app sends you alerts when something exciting is going on like a high speed chase or a fire. The problem is when I click on the alert to listen, everything is calm and the alert was B.S. and also these alerts come all through the night..

  22. guest-avatar

    Terrific application; exceeds all expectations. Without doubt, the best scanner on this forum. My sincere gratitude to both the developers, and administrators of same, for supplying and maintaining, the promised results/standards !!

  23. guest-avatar

    Just download it yesterday and yes I have been listening to different ones in different states as well it's good for me because now I Know what's happening all over I enjoy this app very very much I rate this app #10 because this is the best app out here as far as iam concerned great job and thank you as well

  24. guest-avatar

    It was good but your latest update put a bug in it now it is useless why it is still bugged why

  25. guest-avatar

    Well so far all I can guess the use for this app is to flood you with adds,, as I have observed 0 transmissions of any sort removing this app and I do not recommend,,reason for 2 stars is because the user interface looks as if it would work if the app was an actual scanner

  26. guest-avatar

    Kororangi Peachey


    Only give it a 4 star because it doesn't have my country otherwise it's the best police scanner app by far.

  27. guest-avatar

    Absolutely love the app, great for following along to occurrences nearby, especially during fire season when my family may need to evacuate, does as the description says, love the constant updates, and features, highly recommend

  28. guest-avatar

    I would give this 5 stars except the scanner goes off everytime my screen goes off. I want my screen locked and the scanner to continue playing. Keep it it the notifications box till I slide it off my screen. Please!!!

    Hemendra Bansal


    This app is great: always opens quickly and stays connected well. I use it anytime I hear a large emergency response in my area and it always connects right away.

  30. guest-avatar

    Super nice to add basic code data base like simple what code 4 means etc.

  31. guest-avatar

    Floyd Stgermain

  34. guest-avatar

  35. guest-avatar

    App works great except for volume. Can't hardly hear it turned all the way up. Even tried Bluetooth speaker

  36. guest-avatar

    Yep same as other app. All fire no police. One of your competitors will finnaly get city police back. I'll find it someday. Till then. Lame. 0 stars

  37. guest-avatar

    Easy to use, clear audio makes it possible to scan the world's emergency services...

  38. guest-avatar

    Washington Connor


    Clear timely action in your area and in your region it plays in the background of whatever you are doing. I have not tried out of state but think it will work

  39. guest-avatar

    I like listening to know what is going on. I like that the app sends notifications of my favorite stations..

  40. guest-avatar

  49. guest-avatar

    Tristan Laitinen


    If it wasn't for the ads I'd rate it higher. Ads every 3 seconds.

  50. guest-avatar

    I gave it a 3 star because it is useful but your ad herrasment is insane.

  51. guest-avatar

    Jennifer Vioniwinata


    Works well, good & simple UI, and the notifications are great!

  52. guest-avatar

    It’s cool to hear everything going on in your city. Especially when it may happen close to you but you want to know what’s going on

  69. guest-avatar

    Offers the maximum benefit for scanner apps but still lacks true uncensored content.

  70. guest-avatar

    The app was ok but my nearby station which was miramar and pembroke pines wouldnt connect. It just kept on saying reconnecting, which was kind of dissapointing. Definately needs to be checked on.

    i love all its info but doesnt have the best reception

  100. guest-avatar



    Its definitely legit, I recommend this app for a heads up or just to stream
