  • Really helpful during all the protests Jun 28, 2020

    By azn72calvin
    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

    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!

    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.

    I like that i can actually hear AND understand what's being said. I've tried other apps that made it sound as if the officers needed lessons on squelsh. And you don' have an ad taking the entire screen at the most inopportune time. Great app.( UPDATE: SCRATCH THAT. THEY DO NEED A LESSON ON SQUELCH!!! BUT THE APP IS STILL GREAT! THANKS FOLKS & KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK!)

    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! 🙏🤗🥰

    This is a great app to let you know what is happening around you in real time. The only problem I have come across is that in large metro areas with multiple dispatchers for the different districts step on each other within the app. If there was a way to isolate just your Metro Police District, this would be perfect.
  • Excellent! Sep 29, 2020

    By Dm8907
    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.

    Great updated local news, let's you experience the world around you, most of all it can keep you and your family safe and out f trouble, with real time updates, but it needs, more access to some counties with know access to dispatch, your info, it needs to be two-way.
  • It works well Aug 19, 2021

    By Jeden12000
    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.

    Unlike other scanner apps I have used, this one sends up to date notifications about what is occurring and where it's happening. All sorts of human frailty out there and it's fascinating to listen to.

    I immediately uninstalled, simply because your required to purchase a subscription, but only after the 3 day trial period is over. That's the only option that's offered. There's plenty other police scanner apps that are completely free and offer you an option to purchase the upgraded version without a subscription, just a one time payment.
  • Too expensive, great app cheaper options elsewhere Jul 8, 2020

    By Zekers2021
    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.
  • Jan 13, 2022

    By Mitchie K Dyer
    Didnt get past install. Once open, it asks which you'd like to choose. Between two paid subscriptions or a 3 day free trial. In which after the 3 days its 40$ no. Not a free app like I've seen them comment on other reviews saying. I also don't see how any of these apps are legit. Never used them before but I dont feel civilians should be allowed to hear live radio calls.. idk letting people know who and where, what??

    UPDATE 1/13/22: I pay for this app EVERY month, it has now been offline for over a month....please fix the issue.. I love the app WHEN it works, my county has been offline for quite awhile now UPDATE 12/19/21: Worked for awhile now its out again. I'm in Jefferson County TX and listen to Port Arthur.
  • Charged without trial period Aug 25, 2021

    By mrod298
    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.
  • Was good May 24, 2021

    By Virgwid1
    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.
  • Randomly charged me for the 1 year subscription Dec 3, 2021

    By FiddleGFX
    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.

    Absolute garbage, couldn't even get My local channels deletely after 1 day and unfortunatly I thought that would cancel the subscription but was charged $39.99 for 1 month. Ridiculous amount! now I have to reinstall to cancel subscription. Maybe download a free one that actually works, cha
  • Upset Aug 28, 2021

    By 2thebeach
    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
  • I would like a refund Jun 3, 2020

    By jgsgfhfj
    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.

    By Mack530
    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

    When I hear about anything new, my interest in current events increases. Using this software is a great way to scan police feeds. This programme is a lot smaller than others of its kind.

  • You play with fire and it burns May 13, 2021

    By KimmieKaeSoCray
    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. 🤦🏼‍♀️
