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.

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.

Best scanner app in the App Store, period

I’ve tried dozens, and no other scanner app compares. There still room for improvement, and some features that I don’t understand why nobody ads. For example, let’s create a Scanner app that actually lets us scan multiple channels… I don’t see any technical reason why you couldn’t monitor two or more at once. That said, I’m giving it five stars because of how it compares to all of the other apps in the store. Not holding back because of the new features that I’d like to see. This developer has been rolling out updates frequently, the user interface is already the best there is, and I hope to see more and more updates going forward.
