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.
Great scanner but glitching lately
This is a great app but it’s been glitching as of lately. (Read more)
First off, this app is awesome. It is so easy to use and provides hours of entertainment/information without having to keep it on screen. There are not a bunch of trashy adds which is much appreciated and there is a huge selection of cities/providences.
Really does make the old days of searching through the original handheld scanners seem so difficult.
However, it does not have all the codes like the website so I’m still having to jump over to the site on google in order to decipher the lingo.
Also, I’ve had an issue where it stops playing. I know it’s not the channel because it plays perfectly when I check it on the website.
Beside that, I highly recommend this app!
