    Great app but I'm not getting my city's scanner but nearby towns and cities. Are there frequencies you can't get? I get all the towns and cities but not mine! I love the Rhode Island police and fire, EMS, airport, state police, environmental police and all local fire stations It won't do the Pawtucket police, Cumberland police, and central falls police ( my former department) what can be done! Update: I can now get my former department and other locals! Thanks! UPDATE: ALL OF RI NOW COVERED.

  • Privacy Policy Concerns Mar 9, 2019

    By Eastmarch
    Update: Thank you for replying and looking, as I obviously care about your app and didn't want to have privacy issues. I no longer see the specific references to indefinite data retention which is positive (although current legal language can be interpreted in many ways, "stored for as long as required by the purpose they have been collected for"). I hope the analytics and Unique Device ID will go away when ad removal is purchased. Previous: I've had this app for several years, it has the nicest interface of apps like this, I don't mind paying to remove ads. But, its privacy policy linked from its page on Apple is unnecessarily invasive at 7 pages: Geolocation & User location, Analytics usage data, Unique device indentifiers, and says that the data will be stored indefinitely. I don't want to be tracked forever by my location and unique device id. I wish the author would address this and remove these provisions. I'm paying to remove ads, I don't want to be a product tracked forever, and it's inspiring me to do without it altogether.

    It does exactly what I need it to do. Sometimes the intro ads are annoying but wither way it could be worse. 1 thing I would suggest is design the app so I can listen to youtube or other media while listening to the scanner radio. Outside of that it is a good app

  • Best scanner app in the App Store, period Jun 12, 2019

    By TCapple
    I’ve tried dozens, and no other scanner app compares. There still room for improvement, and some features that I don’t understand why nobody ads. For example, let’s create a Scanner app that actually lets us scan multiple channels… I don’t see any technical reason why you couldn’t monitor two or more at once. That said, I’m giving it five stars because of how it compares to all of the other apps in the store. Not holding back because of the new features that I’d like to see. This developer has been rolling out updates frequently, the user interface is already the best there is, and I hope to see more and more updates going forward.

    only thing that's aggravating is that sometimes it shows where there calls are coming from, other times it doesn't. otherwise 10 out of ten anyways. legit, hands down, best scanner app ever came across. its cause it's actually a scanner.

    Was good.... then the ads took over!!.... no issue with ads, but when they stop you from being able to use the app, play at loud volumes and lock up the app, that is a major problem. Would pay for the pro version, but sounds like similar issues! Not Recommended!!

  • 2 Stars Until Resolved May 31, 2020

    By MrM1key
    Not sure what the issue is. But this app has worked all day for me until this evening. I was receiving alerts fine and dandy. And then later this evening everything seemed to stop. I heard that there were issue going on in/and around Dayton, OH where I live near so I attempted to tune in and I was asked to restore my purchase, not sure why but I was. So I clicked restore like it asked me too. Then I received another message after restoring purchase; that said retrieval failed, failed to retrieve directory information. Right now getting a blank screen. Not loading my favorites, and looks like I lost alllllllll my favorites which is very frustrating to go back through and add all the favorites you previously had; time consuming. Currently the app is not loading anything, this is after deleting and re-downloading the app. Certainly not something your company needs to have occurring right now with what’s happening in our world. Just ridiculous.

    Ads that interrupt the scanner... really!? Fix it please. You can advertise all you want without interrupting the radio traffic. The last ad froze and I had to restart the app.

    Ads! When you open app you cant get to the repeater you want because you have to wait for two ads to "play". Too bad.

    By old man knows nothing
    Love this application, it's super important and user friendly, doesn't annoy me with notifications of any sort, turns off easily too. I uninstalled last year for space I needed, installed it again this year 5 minutes ago and it still has my two stations I kept from my city! Super convenient.

  • Alert Filtering Enhancement Oct 15, 2019

    By FlyboyJMH
    The app is a great scanner listening tool. Works well and is very stable. I have used several different scanner apps and this is now my go-to app. In particular I love the alert functionality! I do have an enhancement request/suggestion. Please consider adding the ability to filter alerts, possibly to restrict alerts by country (ie US only) and also the ability to hide certain feed alerts. With no disrespect to the feed provider, I really am not personally interested in receiving alerts for Elko, NV twenty times a day. I certainly respect the providers zeal and passion but not being anywhere near there, I really don’t need to know about every minor event. Thank you!

  • Scanner Radio is a Must Feb 26, 2020

    By Bob'n'Along
    For nearly 40 years until retiring, I was an editor (and reporter) for a daily newspaper. I can say that without the services of scanner radio traffic, we would have been severely hampered in presenting to our reading public all the “breaking news” that would’ve given us the edge among media outlets. Unfortunately while I was editor, your scanner service was not yet available to us, where facilities were concerned as we relied exclusively on crystal devices that limited us decidedly. Computer generated scanner traffic is much more efficient and if I had it when I was at the newspaper, our news edge would’ve been second to none. Thank you for this opportunity. I continue to listen to scanner traffic in my retirement days.

    Great app. Glad you got the area I live in back on. Only thing is, you removed the setting that keeps the phone awake while app is playing. Now, when phone goes into sleep mode and screen goes black, the app stops playing. Please put that setting back

    By FleaBittenVarmit
    I like this app. It is handy when something happens local and I can turn this on and see what is happening. Except I have missed the initial dispatch. I hate that there is a hum all the time even when ppl are talking. I would like it better and give a higher star rating if more local departments were available. There is one specific that is not available and I don’t know why. It is a highway patrol and every other district in the state is available. It is also cool to be able to listen to basically any where in the country or world. There also are ads in the way now that did not use to be there but I can deal with that. Definitely would recommend.

  • Terrible Distracting Ads Deliberately Interferes App Jun 4, 2020

    By Jane Doe Not
    During these times it’s important to keep up with what’s going on in your community. For this reason I downloaded the app. The app does what it’s supposed to when you’re finally able to get at it. But lately ads layer over on top of the app - over and over and over - no matter how many times you try to close them and start the free app. On top of that clicking close often leads you OUT of the app and into the App Store. Once you actually get to the app it’s great. There are many fine features and includes aids. But this kind of advertising behavior should not be allowed.

  • Removal of Ads Jul 26, 2019

    By #TiredOfPaying
    UPDATE: Developer sent me the fix for my problem. I’m back to no ads!! 😊 It works great. My complaint isn’t about the functioning of the app. My problem is with ad removal process. My new phone will be the third time I’ve switched phones since I’ve had this app. I’ve had it for many years. I’ve paid to remove ads twice now, and I don’t think you should have to paid every time you switch devices. I find it a bit ridiculous. I know it’s only a few dollars, but imagine if you had to repurchase everything on your phone every time you switched devices.

  • App not working Nov 6, 2019

    By Win1958
    This as been my go to app for listening to what’s going on around my city. However the past few days it’s not working and always offline. I’ve deleted the app a few times and reinstalled the app only to still have the same problem. Update: I just gave this two stars because for the past few weeks the police scanner app has not been working properly, after five to ten minutes the scanner shuts off. Pretty sad because when I would like to buy the app something like this happens that I’ve always changed my mind.

  • Great but... Oct 2, 2019

    By shelly11111969
    I’ve always had this app, for years It’s been on every phone I’ve had. But lately certain places aren’t working, when it says there’s hundreds of listeners. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app, turned off my phone, gotten an update and still nothing. It’ll say it’s playing but absolutely no sound comes out, but other places work fine. I thought it was only my phone but my daughters phone is the same. It’ll say there’s hundreds of listeners, when I’m getting absolutely no sound.
