Ratings and Reviews
Loving It but Losing It
I'm only giving 3 stars because this really, really useful app won't work as soon as I update to iOS11. Otherwise it's come in amazingly handy on several occasions when local news outlets were silent on apparently large-scale police actions in my area. I've had it as part of my collection of emergency apps since first finding out about it and sincerely hope it gets upgraded really, really soon!
For the negative detractors,
I find this app to suit my needs & my local agencies. I'm not a hotdogger that I have to listen @ every fire dept in the USA or the world for that matter, I spent my time & did my duty. As for EMS to nearly spending 30yrs before a line of duty injury forced me into retirement from something I loved, now I miss both & hopefully someday you hotdoggers might understand to make a difference in someone's life! Not play with lights & sirens.
I enjoy the use of this software. It allows me to hear stations I normally can't find locally. is really handy if I go out of my local area. I can look and see if freq's are available choose them as I travel. Thanks for a really useful program. I hope to be able to be a contributor as well. Thanks again guys. ! !
