Dmdrn - Review explaining my score
I gave this app a score of 2stars out of a possible 5stars. I like that this is a free app that’s great. I like that I have the ability to have it with me on my phone. I like that this app also will send a written notification of possible emergency events happening for the towns/county of the States it represents/monitors. I don’t like that I have to actually have to be using the App and just App to HEAR any and all alerts that it gets yet it can send me a text like notification of an alert in a state other than my state or county for which is on the list of being monitored. I’ll hear our fire department alarms going off and this app does not pick up and let me know yet it will say that in Mississippi somewhere (just an example)🤷♀️🤷♀️ . I don’t even get the text like notifications that an event/emergency is or had happened even when I can actually hear the fire engines and ambulance and police passing my house . So this App seams to be selective on what it lets you see/hear I do wonder if I PAY for the UPGRADE if I WILL then actually be able to definitely see/hear the emergency events in MY TOWN. On the free app it only lists my fire department (not the police) as being monitored Not the police I would appreciate it if I could hear and see my county/town like it advertises.
Azn72calvin - Really helpful during all the protests
When the protests were going on, this app showed up on my main page, and it’s been excellent to help me keep up to date with what’s going on. You can hear directly from police departments, and it’s quite insightful to know how they’re thinking.
Also, the app itself is very intuitive and user friendly, and I even found this walkie talkie feature that allowed me to talk to other users about what’s going on around me.
Overall, it’s an app that’s super relevant and useful for the times. Stay safe out there guys
K9 Following Ghosts - Best Sound and Customer Service
Sound: I've tried all the other police scanner apps and I can hear the voices more clear on this app than any of the other apps.
Customer Service: I recently switched phones and download this app on my new phone. I paid for the premium version but I was still getting adds. I reached out to customer and they were very patient with me and very helpful in explaining what I needed to do to resolve the issue.
Bobby21.1 - Review
The app definitely pulls in the transmissions for the bands it is able to pick up. It would be much better if you could select X number to monitor at one time instead of only being able to listen to one band at a time. Many of these bands don’t have a lot of transmissions so you can go several minutes without hearing anything.
Since many police departments have gone with a different digital technology, you are not able to listen to them as they are ‘private’ now. It does not appear the paid version of this app allows multiple bands to be scanned at one time but I could be wrong.
Jon89st - Kept me safe I believe in California
I was in a bad area or neighborhood in California, I put this on and it loud and low here and there and I think maybe others that would cause me harm could may have think I was a undercover or off duty officer… can be a life saver… you can use it during an altercation on a train.. turn in loud maybe the people fighting will stop and run, your walking alone down a street, or in a parking lot… turns you into a target into a feared person… people who commit crimes Fear the Police. It’s nothing new.
Download get used to how to use it to your local area, listen in or save yourself or others in a situation.
SLP 1988 - Am I missing something?
I really like this app. It works great and keeps me informed of what’s going on around me. I have had it a month now, and I am 99% sure I have the free version. I have double checked my accounts to make sure I haven’t been scammed because all these bad reviews have me worried! There are ads when you switch channels but nothing awful. I usually stay on the same channel anyways. So unless I’m missing something, I would definitely recommend!
JimBugsFats - Excellent App!
This is one of the best Apps I have used. The sound and voices are very clear. Being a dispatcher from Fairfax county, Virginia back in the mid 70’s I understand the language. Being a retired Firefighter/Paramedic after 50 years I still feel the need to move for the door for the next call.
It is with great sadness to fine of the volunteer firefighters and EMT at a dying breed. I remember the slogan:” What if your house was on or your were hurt and nobody came?”
100HonestReviews001 - Is a good app
I like this app honestly. I love how it tells you were the call is from, so you not guessing.
I dislike the price you have to pay for filtered out content, when u can just buy a scanner walki for the price of the year.
I pad for the full year on accident due to not canceling the trial. I wish that Apple will change that. Obviously if you like the app, you're gonna pay for it, if you don’t, your not. It shouldn’t be your (forgetfulness) that pays for the subscription/app.
Anisb3l - My favorite app
I like it I really really like it but the only thing is I need someone to take away the ads because it always irritates me because every time I exit out of a stream it just you know puts an ad open and cannot close it so either show the close button or just delete the ad feature entirely thank you for creating this app
Rcdbellamy - Throughly Enjoying
I’ve listened to scanners ALL my life! There were always two going 24/7 growing up. I have them now, but can no longer pick up anything. I wish I could find out what scanner is used here for I don’t mind paying. Until then, I’ll continue to listen here. My favorite thus far is Indianapolis, Indiana. I feel like I know where everything is there!
Purrrrme2u - Be safe and thanks!
This is a really nice way to listen to calls and how it works out. I am against defunding the police and I support all the police, sheriffs department, paramedics and so many other departments that help keep us safe. I feel bad for the police getting the short end of the stick but hopefully the powers that be, Will finally see the light and support our Frontline workers! 🙏🤗🥰
BigAntBrooklyn - To cancel subscription
You must delete the app and the option pops up. I tried to figure this out before deleting to re install. because when I tried to access the subscriptions on the app the page kept crashing or endless loading. Hopefully it was canceled.
Zekers2021 - Too expensive, great app cheaper options elsewhere
First let me start by saying I like this app, however I have been using another scanner with the exact same features, channels and layout for years at a much, much cheaper price. I would 100% purchase this app for $5 maybe even $10 for a onetime purchase, but $40 for a year?? You can purchase a lifetime subscription for an almost identical app (just search for scanners). Dev, come on. Why does this app warrant a $40 a year subscription? By no means am I trying to hate on this app, I’m just trying to be real.
Jeden12000 - It works well
When I first started using it, it would show the department making the call. It would say scanning when no one was talking. I thought that was better as it encourages me to look at the screen more and see your ads. I would like to encourage you to change it back to that.
Shred fest - Owner
I want to be off of this app I didn’t ask for it and I’m not going to pay for it so if you don’t mind help me get rid of this and the last thing I want to know is what the Hells going on in the suburbs of New Jersey when I live in California or the big Cape or at the 7-Eleven in Nebraska when I live in California it’s no sense take me off your list I won’t pay for it if it comes through as a charge I will go to my bank and say fraud fraudulent thank you for this and thank you for helping me get rid of this app
Do u want a reviw? - The best police scanner
This one is totally free although Apple will charge you $9.99 a month. I contacted the company about it and they confirmed that it is free! They’re a very honest company and helpful when something seems to go wrong. Just be careful if you have Apple as they’re out to collect money that the company is NOT charging so they can pocket it.
Mrod298 - Charged without trial period
I downloaded the app and was surprised to see you needed a subscription. It offered a free 3 day trial before billing. Less than an hour later I checked my bank account and noticed it had immediately billed me for the year subscription without any trial period. The app doesn’t even work well in my location. It would work for a min then go silent. The app was shutting down repeatedly. I now have to wait for an email response to get refunded and then who knows when it actually makes it back in my bank account.
Dm8907 - Excellent!
Excellent for keeping up with local PD and FD. To know what is happening locally in the moment is valuable information for citizens, and this app brings you that information. I’ve never had any issues with the app, and I’ve had it for about a year now. It also has weather bands so you be in the know on severe weather, too! Love it.
FiddleGFX - Randomly charged me for the 1 year subscription
I got the app and deleted it same day because it was just not all that great, very clunky and didn’t have my local department anyway. It never asked me if I wanted to subscribe or anything when I got the app, nor did it ask if I wanted a trial. I was then charged for the year subscription 2 days after I deleted the app. I didn’t notice it until now, almost 5 months later, and unfortunately can’t get a refund anymore. Don’t download this unless you want to be scammed.
Virgwid1 - Was good
Used to like this app. I moved to a new state just before Covid. I was using the scanner to get to know my city. Used to be able to hear both police and fire. Now it keeps saying the police are offline. I have reported this more than once and asked when it was going to be fixed. I get no response from these people. Just a thing saying they got my question and will get back to me. Been nearly a month since the first inquiry. No responses. Not impressed. I was going to pay to get rid of the ads but not now. Not impressed.
Khaliqbaqi - Good app to use
I honestly love this app I honestly give it 5 stars n honestly when y’all do the next update y’all let us see the actual location of the call with map system or copy paste it to where we could search it up or something like that honestly I give it 5 stars
Evan423 - Review
This is a grate app, I use it from when I am outside of my station, we’re ima. Probationary firemen, that is not allowed to use a radio. To hear radio traffic, but the down side is, when we get toned for a call, I don’t hear anything on the app. But I hear surrounding departments, EMS and LEO. I would love if you could fix it.
Sugarlipps1984 - Good entertainment 💋
I’m in Tacoma Washington and I love being able to listen to my men in blue do there job , Also planning on moving to a different state so it’s nice to be able to hear what’s going on in the states that I’m interested in moving to …just sick of Washington. Anyways try this app out you’ll like it , always Iris Taylor ❤️
KimmieKaeSoCray - You play with fire and it burns
I definitely just got played. Not that I wasn’t trying to somewhat double dip on a 3 day trial. Instead of being told I had already used it and rejected; I was just charged 42$ for a subscription. Started listening in Boulder at my job watching emergency personnel fly by my job during the grocery store shooting. Im appalled. I love this app but I honestly didn’t have the 42$ to keep it long term. 🤦🏼♀️
PopinElise - Clear, easy and informative!
This Scanner App is by far the best one I’ve ever used. It is educational and somewhat entertaining. It helps to know and hear the professional manner in which First Responders behave. I’ve been very impressed by the quality of sound and the strong signal I get in my county.
2thebeach - Upset
I accidentally signed up for a year and it’s $40!!! Yes it’s my fault I didn’t read the message correctly but a year shouldn’t be the default. A month should have been but I guess this lets you take people for the maximum amount. It doesn’t even have the channel for the immediate area where I live.
Update August: Since I paid for a year I have been using it and now it stopped working. It can’t find anything anywhere. Please get it working again so my money wasn’t completely wasted. Thank you
Mruggiero414 - Great scanner app
This is a great scanner app, it’s easy to search for your local channels and then add them to your favorites list for easy access to them again. It doesn’t lag and the ads aren’t disruptive to the streaming.. Definitely a well built app, and so far it hasn’t crashed, so keep up the good work!
Synboy77 - Timely download
A fire broke out near my complex. This app has been helpful to keep me informed about where the fire is moving. Also reminds me of my childhood when my father, who was a firefighter, would have the scanner running all day. Thank you for this service!!
Mack530 - Sheriff scanner
I have listen to a lot of police scanner’s but this is truly one of the best app I have found that is for my area, I am very glad that I had found this police scanner, I enjoy it and It keeps me in form of what is going on in my neighborhood and down my street, I thanks those who created this app
Stevenp38464 - DONT PURCHASE THIS APP!!
I downloaded this app and purchased the commercial free version. I haven’t used the app for several months. Opened it today and it has commercials and now requiring me to purchase a subscription. None of the previous channels are online anymore which is not the apps fault, but it isn’t worth what they are trying to do and if you don’t use it for a while then they slide in the subscription thing. I’m out they can keep my lil $9.99 that I had already paid.
Tntate2 - Takes me back to my childhood
Growing up, my Dad was on the local rescue squad so he had the scanner on all night. It was fun to listen to the chatter until I fell asleep. This app is even better. Not only do I get the local information, I can listen in at different places around the country. Great app.
Robert<Not a bot - Use to like the app but has been crashing
I have used this app for many years but the last few months it’s been crashing constantly I’ve tried everything from checking for updates and even reinstalling a bit disappointing glad I don’t pay for it monthly 🤷♂️ hopefully it gets fixed and I’ll change my review for the better
FoxxySparks - I would like a refund
I tried this app out for the 3 day trial and canceled when I was suppose to. There was no actual cancel button but it said to stop using the app and remove the content from your phone in order to not be charged. So why did I just get a notification today saying that I was charged for a year subscription when I had already deleted your app after deciding I didn’t want it? I would like my money refunded to me ASAP because I followed your terms for the free trial.
This was wrong.
Mike Kovalchlk - Thanks much needed service
I think that this wonderful way you are keeping the public informed on what is going on around us and it helps the community to be on the lookout for their areas’ and keep it going please thanks a lot.
Jdukediggler - NO OPT OUT OFFERED
This app does not have any way to opt out before the 3 day. I just downloaded it 30 minutes ago and clicked free trial and am ready to cancel before auto renew and there isn’t any place in settings or a place to create a log in to cancel and I DO NOT want to be stuck paying for this as I am ready to opt out and don’t want my money to be taken as so many other people have already had taken from them according to recent comments.
Bcollies2 - Ads
I need to amend my review. I was very frustrated about the ads returning after paying for the pro version. Reached out to the developers and they helped me restore my purchase now I’m enjoying the app again Thank you.
Dino0369 - Censoring
Glad I did not purchase premium version, and never will. You guys keep taking the Philadelphia Police & NYPD radios offline during the riots and looting. You of course will say the rioters are using the app to make plans since they will know the next move by police. Not a good move. People should know what is happening in their neighborhoods. Instead, you cut them off. Taking a page from the old Soviet Union and Communist China. Then just remove your app all together if you are going to act like Control from 1984!
JennaLee1025 - Review
I tried the 3 day free-trial. I searched and searched for a way to cancel before the 3 days were even up. It was nowhere to be found. I never signed up for the yearly subscription. Yet I woke up with a 40$ charge to my account. I have contacted you guys, and received no answers. I still can’t find anywhere to cancel or no other way to contact developer. Such a scam. 40$ a year is way too expensive when there are far less expensive out there
Grunt09311 - Police scanner
I thoroughly enjoy listening to police scanner and also it is an amazing deal as the cost is actually very little for what I am getting and I recommend it to anyone and everyone!
KeithSmellBetter1491503 - Police Scammer
It’s another one of those “free” apps that doesn’t allow functionality without a high price…
I was in a school shooting earlier this year and I used a different police scanner app that is no longer available. This allowed me and my classmates to feel relief before others on campus after the suspect was in custody. I think the person in charge of this app’s development should take a long, hard look in the mirror…
Safe with an app - Crime
I like to know what is happening in and around my community. This app helps me know where the problem areas are. I feel safer being able to listen what is happening around my neighborhood.
Purplescrew - Wish it worked 4 me
It is a decent app for the cities that actually work. In my area I can’t hear the police feed. The channel used to be there and now it’s gone!! Ft Thomas KY police!! I liked hearing about what was going on and now I can’t find a working channel. It always said offline or didn’t show my channel at all!! So useless to me!
Brayden 26 - Question...
Let’s say there’s a one alarm fire like 3 miles away do I get that alert? I want to know where there’s a fire close by so I can film it so that’s what I want to know, or if there’s a good app where I can know where there’s a fire near me.
"Big line" - Fix it
It needs to be simplified by putting favorites channels should be coming up before places I have no desire to listen to. Very complicated to navigate around the app definitely needs to be tweaked and made less complicated and the adds are to easy to accidentally hit on which sends you to them which is very annoying when your trying to navigate to your desired location on the scanner.
Realbrooklynct - Silent listening
Great app thanks for allowing users to have such a great app for free now we can hear what’s going on in the country! Most of us don’t have a clue what’s happing in our world! Great app I will continue to tell all my friends and family about your app!!! Thank you
Dragon227772 - I want a refund
This app immediately took out $42 after clicking on the 3 day FREE trial. I even canceled the subscription on my phone before that 3 day FREE trial was up and I still got charged because it immediately started pending $42 from my bank account. Apps normally wait until the free trial is up to request any money out of someone’s account. Not this one you will immediately have a pending charge for this app. Nothing about the trail is free
Buffalo Billy D - A friend
This is a decent app. Although modern technology has police dispatched through computers. Radios are more for person to person transmission. Smaller police departments might still run radio for dispatch. I’m not familiar with that though.
Im sorryy - It’s a good app
I just was clicking around and didn’t know that I clicked to report something I’m sorry I thought it would tell me more about when that certain thing would happen
2483727162 - Didn’t think it would work tbh
Honestly I didn’t think this would work after a glance but I was watching police wiz by my rv and I thought I give it ago a and to my surprise I could here everything they were saying!
API of Colorado - Beyond scanning
Very professional scanner with major perks that differates anything else I’ve tried.
Get live updates off line on your phone then except the call or just keep notified. This is anywhere at anytime in the United States.
A little on the expensive side if you op to go with the pro plan, but you honestly get what you pay for. I am not opted in but still get the perks. I can only imagine what I would have if I did and plan too shortly.
Really great scanner can’t express that enough.

Cable.tec - Great app
Only problem with this app is the delay on transmissions from the server but that is the nature of the beast
Lewisburwellpuller - Scanner Radio Fires Near Me
Scanner Not Working Having Issues With Not Function It Just Quit On Me It Was Working Up To A Certain Point Then Nothing Don't Know What To Do It Won't Load At Although Very Nicely Made Scanner Now Working Cause Was Power Failure
Ledavies - No obvious way to cancel
Doesn’t cover the cities that I am interested in. No obvious way to cancel!
Tootaloo5667 - Working again
Was working great for a long time now, however as of late channels are offline more than online. Very intermittent. Can’t give five stars for that. When it’s working definitely 5. Update didn’t solve anything
Update: working again it’s great
