Ratings and Reviews
Great interface, poor functionality
I really like this app and have a paid account. Other apps do have better functionality and options (like a sleep timer). The thing I like best about this app is the search by current location. You may not know what county you are in when traveling and this is a great function. This app, however, does not play well with other apps and I usually lose audio and have to restart when most other apps with audio kick in. I also have to restart when switching from wifi to cellular data.
Edit: 10/18 This app now loses functionality so often it’s nearly unusable. As a subscriber with a paid account, this is so frustrating. Feeds rarely stay online for more than a half hour at a time, and when trying to reconnect, the whole app seems borked, It seems to lose connection with the server completely.
Poorly Conceived UI and UX
The app does what it says, and we all know this is the best general site for accessing shared scanner feeds. But it seems like no one even gave this app any forethought. When you have a feed playing there’s no way to click back over to it easily without manually tracking the same exact feed down again, no indicators whatsoever. It should act like any other audio player and have a play/pause button and link back to the feed.
Honestly the best scanner
This is honestly the best police scanner. They have their own website also. The major benefit of broadcastify is they offer alerts and descriptions of high priority events that you can check under alert feeds. And when swiping through different scanners if they have an important alert it will be visible with a summary of the events taking place.
