Top 5 Favorite App
I've been happy with this app from the start. The fee is well worth paying for upgrading to the pro version, not only because it's ad-free but also for all the fun bonus feeds that come with it. My only disappointment is that I have a few (mostly local) feeds that indicate their on-air status as available, but are almost never able to stream. I suppose this could be an issue with the feed source itself and not the app, so I haven't let that issue affect my overall opinion or rating. Also, this app is fun - who else doesn't enjoy being nosy about where those sirens you just heard are heading?
Great App to have on hand, if not having a minor problem or 2 with it
The Pro version of 5-0 Radio is a huge step up from the original free version, because you get well more for your money that you spend for the paid version, and it's only at a very low, fair price of just $3.99! That being said, I myself, have noticed that, at times, some of the Radio stations on this app just seem to stop working for a while for some odd reason or two. I'm hoping the people in charge of the stations on this app or just the app itself will fix any and all bugs that may still be hiding within.
I listen to local only stations, but love knowing what the issues are in our town. My son-n-law is an officer and I can see trials and tribulations the officers incur day in day out. I am enjoying the EMS/Fire, Sheriff Dept. as well since they are all listed together. I wish I was able to identify immediately which dept. is broadcasting. I usually can determine from locations, but not always. It would be nice to select a single department only. The app has worked great and I have recommended it to friends. It is a great service to those who have an interest or need to listen to calls. Most of the time there are 24 + listeners.
