Only Remaining Option for Transparency

I work as a local media source for our small town. The police department has invested in an encrypted program that does not allow our old scanners to hear what is happening. Despite having all of the county’s transmissions, which can honestly be confusing, I’m grateful to have at least some insight into what is happening using your app. We get our reports from the police but there is no oversight on whether what happened in the report is true or not. (Note, our police dept is not corrupt and we have had no problems), but this leaves your app as our only means for oversight. It’s also a valuable resource during storms and other area emergencies. I know staff at our hospital use it to stay informed, as well. Please do whatever you can to continue.

Needs more international feeds

This app is great, if you want to listen to police, fire, EMS, and other things that are broadcasted on two-way radios in the United States. But when it comes to international feeds like, feeds from South America, Asia, Europe, you know what I mean, this app is very lacking. For example, Brazil is one of the countries listed, as having feeds in the sap, but when I checked, it only has about three scanner feeds! Brazil is a huge country with a lot of provinces and a lot of big cities. they probably have to have thousands of police fire and EMS channels that are active, unless they have only one police force in one city! Same thing with other South American countries like Argentina. That’s a big country as well, but there’s only three scanner feeds. Think of all the cops and firefighters in that country, they have to have more than just three! They need to add more sources, more international feeds, and more support for other countries besides United States. I get that some countries may not have as many scanner feeds, for example, the US and Canada are the only countries on the planet that have weather radio, but for God sake, police radio is everywhere. How else to officers communicate!

Developer Response ,

Many countries including Brazil have laws that make it challenging to rebroadcast police scanners. All of our feeds are provided by volunteers who stream through platforms like Broadcastify.com. If you have an interest and are able to do so legally in your jurisdiction, feel free to become one of the volunteers!

Good but needs 2 things.

I like how i can listen to this to keep safe. I am feom joliet illinois. So i like this and am learning more about this. I have 2 suggestions however, one a mild complaint. First and formost, the kinda complaint, at times i will try to listen on a Soundcore wireless bluetooth speaker, and even tho my device connects whileusing this app, the audio dont go thru unless i disconnect, make it work on bluetooth speakers pretty please. As for my suggestion, i dint get my county on the radio listenings. I get the entire region (im in joliet, so according to the info, ill get joliet crest hill frankfort rockdale, i would like to see a way to switch in between stations within that station (my station is chicago suburbs south, so it would be cool if i could tune into Joliet, then swap over to JUST romeoville area, then tune into rockdale, or just have the option to have them all come thru in one channel as they do now. For context, in chicago suburbs there Re like 15 police departments all broadcasting in one channel)

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your suggestions. Bluetooth should be working and playing back through your connected device, I will take a look to see if there is anything we can do to improve or if there are issues we can address. With regards to switching the stations, this is currently not possible as the volunteer who provides the feed selects which stations to monitor. However, we are hoping to have more granular options for streaming specific stations in the future as we work with our backend provider.
