Using as a Police Scanner

I really enjoy this app! Have not delved beyond the police scanner yet, as that was main reason to use it.
It works exactly as you would want for that. So many options! I live in a large city in CO and rest of my family live back in MI. This lets me not only know what is happening here in this huge city around me, but I can keep an ear out on my adult kids to👍🏼
Interesting how you learn that when police departments complain how underfunded they are, or under staffed, by hearing that on any given weekend, in any district, only 3-4 cars are on the late night shift, and complaint calls hold for over 24 can understand the frustration from not only the people in the city, but very much so by the police who have to answer those insanely late response times! Last weekend Friday night, 2am, 4 different calls were held involving guns and knives simply because there was no one to respond!
Yup. Sorry for the long story, but this app has actual learning value to it. 109% recommendation ✌🏽

Best free scanner app

I live in our state’s largest county. We have county fire/rescue/police and several cities with the county, plus marine. I live within city limits but work just outside those limits. I can bounce between channels to find out where all those emergency vehicles are headed so I can reroute my commute. I can tell what’s going on around me when I’m hearing multiple sirens. The app runs while I’m doing other things on my phone (unless I close it) so I’ll hear it if something happens near me. I can listen to what’s happening near my friends and family. The ads don’t stop the streaming like some others do. I’m sure if I upgrade I’ll have more features but I’m fine for now.

Could be better

My biggest problem with the app is the free version and the timing of the ads or commercials. I understand they are necessary for those of us not wanting to commit to a monthly fee- But the timing! If I turn this on it might be because a family member has medical issues and I just saw a ambulance going their direction- I only have a couple mins to catch the most identifying (Important) information.... I don’t want to watch a few ads first- Give people time to hear the call go out when possible- There has to be another way like allowing a customer the chance to watch as many ads as they want to earn “minutes” that can be applied the next time they use the app- Perhaps at closing or option during with a pop up but not completely shutting it off until they sit through it when starting app up- A lot of crucial info goes out during the initial call..

I also notice it’s always shutting off at random when your trying to have it in the background... Otherwise it works pretty good, I’ve tried a couple others and always go back to this one every time!
