  • 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!

    Love this app. I get to hear what's going on in my community. No problems in its operation. Works like it should. July 15, 2021. Lost most all audio signal from the app. All other apps sound as they should. Is there a volume setting I should know about? July 16, app is working fine again. Thanks for contacting me!

    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.
  • 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 scanner app Sep 12, 2019

    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!

    Great app! Great number of agency's and definitions. Listen live as events unfold anywhere in the country! There are even some out of the country like Australia and British Columbia/Canada! Interesting and entertaining! Police, fire, emergency life flight! Useful to avoid problem areas when traveling, traffic accidents and Lane closures. I've tried several similar apps and used one app for years as my fav go-to, but this one has surpassed them all! Thanks devs for making the best!

    Needs clearer UI when asking for using the paid version. I initially didn't think there was a free option until reading some reviews. I'd recommend a "Maybe Later" button under the free trial and it would probably reduce the negative review count. The symbol clutter at the top of the screen and the lack of an X prior to navigating onto that screen contribute to the lack of clarity.

    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

    The app might be good, couldn't tell ya, never got far enough. I despise apps that portray themselves as "free", only to be forced into paying once in the app to do anything. The 3 day free trial is a nice touch, but auto-enrolling me for a YEARLY subscription at the end is a bit shady too. I'm sure ya'll made a great app, and you certainly deserve to be paid for your time and effort, but I don't appreciate the slimy tactics used, so I won't be using any of your products.

    I'm really surprised this app got 4.8 stars. I've had it for 3 days and I'm uninstalling it already. I set it on "local" and it keeps switching to "all". I've been getting unwanted notices at least 5 and 6 times a day from Chicago, New York, Detroit, and even California. I live in Ohio.
  • 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.
  • Jun 25, 2021

    By Donald Newlands
    I've never felt so ripped off by an app before. The way they push a 4-day free trial before billing you $29 or $39 without offering a simple way to cancel the subscription through the app is a total rip. It should be illegal to design apps to take people's money this way. The Google Play store should have much clearer terms about how free trials can work and when and how companies can bill for subscriptions that people may or may not remember that they "agreed" to.
  • 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.

    I installed the app and found out the cost, declined and Un-installed it. I still got billed $40.00, so I reinstalled it. Very little to listen to in my area, only one channel and it is country wide. I get nothing local. I would like to put it on my tablet since I paid for it, but I can't find anything saying that I can. I am scared to try, because I don't want to get billed again.

    HORRIBLE APP! Don't even bother wasting your time.Not once did I ever get through.It just keep”reconnecting"over & over again. To make matters worse,they're extremely DECEIVING,claiming it's free.That's like saying ’free rent’ but house not included.They actually charge OVER $40 for the same service other apps provide for free!! Come on guys, you can't be THAT idiotically greedy! I later noticed tons of pissed customers you've scammed then require THEM to hunt you down for their refunds.HORRIBLE

    Do NOT and I repeat DO NOT make the mistake of attempting to sign up for the "free trial" I had my "free" trial subscription for less than an hour and have yet to be refunded for the $42.00 charge I got hit with! Worst experience with an app I've ever had. Don't waste your time or money.
  • 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.

    Used to love this app as it was free and a great way to stay informed about police actitivy in my area. Now it costs 40 bucks to have? Not worth it.

    Pretty neat app to check out. Pretty accurate too. I like it to keep an eye on my mom during the holidays and if a disaster is happening. Plus there are a lot of different channels to check in on. Pretty cool.
  • Clear, easy and informative! Jan 20, 2021

    By PopinElise
    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.

  • 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. 🤦🏼‍♀️

    DO NOT DOWNLOAD! This app will enroll you in a yearly subscription at $42/yr but you are unable to unsubscribe to it like others. They tell you go to the app store, click subscriptions and unsubscribe.....but the developers of this app didn't actually include that unsubscribe button. Anyway I had to delete out all my Google Pay payment information to avoid getting recharged. PREDATORY APP based out of HONG KONG! What happend in TIANENNMEN SQUARE!?

    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!
