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!
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 hrs....you 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 ✌🏽
Great Free App
I've owned a handheld digital scanner for years, and it was with me for much of my free time and always when I was in the car. Unfortunately it got knocked off a table and is not working. This app helps fill the gap pretty well. I like that I can listen to other areas from home and can tune in to home when traveling. I love that it has a timer that turns the app off if I fall asleep listening. I listen almost exclusively to law enforcement/fire. The one thing I do not like about the app is that more than one channel will run at a time. With City, County and Fire all going at the same time it is sometimes impossible to know what is happening. This is the next best thing to my handheld.
