Used to be great

I just wrote a long review on my other device a few weeks ago about how this was the greatest scanner app on the market. That has changed.

The ads used to be simple and subtle, but now they take up the whole screen. Often times when you’re trying to load a scanner app time is of the essence. Waiting for a full screen ad to load is a huge inconvenience and delays our ability to monitor a current unfolding public safety situation.

I just bought a paid version of a different app to replace this app after years of being a loyal user. Either get rid of the full screen ads (banner ads are totally fine) or give us a paid option. Until then, I’ll use a different app to get the exact same data streams.

Developer Response ,

Yes, I fixed the app's ad delivery functionality (which broke a few years ago) in order to fund the development of improvements and new functionality (some of which you've probably seen added recently with much more to come).

Note that there *is* a paid option, the "Remove Ads" button that's in the upper right corner of the player screen.

Privacy Policy Concerns

Update: Thank you for replying and looking, as I obviously care about your app and didn't want to have privacy issues. I no longer see the specific references to indefinite data retention which is positive (although current legal language can be interpreted in many ways, "stored for as long as required by the purpose they have been collected for"). I hope the analytics and Unique Device ID will go away when ad removal is purchased. Previous: I've had this app for several years, it has the nicest interface of apps like this, I don't mind paying to remove ads. But, its privacy policy linked from its page on Apple is unnecessarily invasive at 7 pages: Geolocation & User location, Analytics usage data, Unique device indentifiers, and says that the data will be stored indefinitely. I don't want to be tracked forever by my location and unique device id. I wish the author would address this and remove these provisions. I'm paying to remove ads, I don't want to be a product tracked forever, and it's inspiring me to do without it altogether.

Developer Response ,

I didn't reply since you're entitled to your opinion. I searched the policy and I'm unable to find anything indicating that your data is stored indefinitely. Also, as stated in the policy, your location is only used to provide location-based services (which comes into play if you have the app show you what scanners are available in your area or if you perform a search and select a distance limit, that's the only time the app attempts to determine your location). Regarding the privacy policy being 7 pages in length, that's required in order to be as thorough as possible (that's why there's a summary section and a detailed section).

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.
