CB allows you to listen to CB app broadcasters for free, anywhere in the world. At its core, the CB app is designed to function like an old-fashioned Citizen's Band radio, but with unlimited range. An in-app purchase unlocks broadcasting so you can get in on the fun!

Your privacy and safety are very important to us at CB. Because of this, your exact location on the CB map will NEVER show up to other users. Users can only see an approximate location for others (red, green, gold, and purple pins). This is because we intentionally and randomly move your pin on the map, somewhere within 3-15 miles of your actual location.

What CB is:
• A fun way to meet new people and talk to friends all over the world.
• A social network for people who enjoy the personal touch of real conversation.
• An easy-to-use simulation of a ham radio, a CB radio, and a walkie-talkie, all in one.

What CB is not:
•CB does not use Citizen's Band radio frequencies. It uses the internet.
•CB is not a police radio scanner.
•CB can NOT show you another user’s exact location!

How it works:
1. Download the app and open it.
2. Listen to what other people have to say.
3. Press and hold your finger anywhere on the screen to make your broadcast!
4. Free users can broadcast up to 10-seconds, with a 10-second delay between broadcasts. Purchase a subscription to remove the delay and allow longer broadcasts. See below for details about the in-app purchases of auto-renewing subscriptions.

And there's much, much more! We would love to hear your feedback! The CB team regularly checks in on CB, and you can Tweet us at @TheCBApp or reach us on our Facebook page at

Regarding the auto-renewing subscriptions:

Because of the ongoing costs of running the back-end servers for CB, we are moving away from the one-time purchase model, and have added in auto-renewing subscriptions. The app will honor previous purchases; if you have recently purchased a non-renewing subscription like a one month unlock or long broadcasts, or if you have ever made a non-consumable in-app purchase such as the "Forever" option, your app will be unlocked at the "Pro" level (details below) for the appropriate amount of time (e.g. for the rest of your legacy subscription, or forever if non-consumable). Additionally, if you are a "Forever" purchaser, your pin will show up on the map for others as a gold pin rather than the standard green for paid users.

As detailed above, the free level of service limits users to 10 second broadcasts, with a 10-second delay enforced between broadcasts. Picking any auto-renewing subscription removes the 10 second delay. The four new subscription levels are:

Basic - $0.99 for three months (about a penny a day) - Gives you 15-second broadcasts.

Pro - $2.99 for three months (about a dollar a month) - Gives you 30-second broadcasts.

Executive - $9.99 for six months (less than $2 a month) - Gives you 60-second broadcasts.

Royal - $35.99 annually (about $3 a month) - Gives you broadcasts up to 60 minutes!

When you subscribe, payment will be charged to your iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase.

Subscriptions automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period.

Your account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period, and identify the cost of the renewal.

You can manage your subscriptions, and turn off auto-renewal by going to your Account Settings after purchase.

At the moment, we're not offering a free trial, but if we add that, the way it works is that any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when you purchase a subscription.
