Sprat Emporium ,


Recommended to me. Spent hours glued to the firefighters fighting a bush fire near my GF house. As we are half a world apart at the moment , it let me leave an accurate message as to what had happened overnight. Stopped the rumours spreading about that the town was lost..
allows you to follow the actual facts.
Gave us peace of mind.

Variety of scanners, always something interesting to listen to

Really love this app, never had a problem with it in all the years I’ve used it, even across different models of iPhone and iPad.

Custom alerts are handy if something happens and you want to be informed.

Always something to listen to, I often pop it on just to listen to something “live” whether it’s aircraft Stateside or a marine channel.
