Great and addicting application
I was shown this application which my friend had on his I phone as we sat and listened to Sky Harbor Air Traffic Control which is what assumed it was for until I downloaded it and realized how much this application has to offer, police, fire, rescue, radio, air traffic control etc..etc. Since downloading this application I have become truly addicted to 5-0, especially the Phoenix Police department where it seems there is never a dull moment.
You can choose from all the states, and even some foreign countries depending upon what you desire.
There also is music, comedy, adult comedy, talk radio and so much more; but don't take my word for it give it a try and see if you also find his one of the top 100 applications.
Only issue now, and I just reported it is on the new update the app stays in background mode even when you shut it down unless you turn off your I Pad or I Phone.
FYI I fall to sleep each night to Phoenix PD and if you add his app you'll soon find out why.
Those who were not happy with the app in my opinion were hoping that all poise, fire etc would be on the application and most likely are disappointed because of that, who knows give it some time and I'm sure there is more to come.
Everyone I showed the app went, installed it and also have become hooked on it.
PLEASE FIX YOUR UPDATE THOUGH!!!
Great App, however
I am currently living 9000 miles from my home town, well out of reception range for my real scanner so I was totally stoked when I came across these scanner app's. I also have the PSRP app. I was even more stoked when I realized my home town police and fire were listed, what I do not like is it has my home town bundled with the two counties in which it lays. My home town feed comes through crystal clear, however one of the county feeds has horrible audio and other is not much better. I would really like to see them split to separate feeds so I do not have to hear the squawking, hissing and scratching every time a county radio transmits, it is very annoying. This is the only issue I have with this app. If anyone knows who to contact and ask if this change can be made please post it here. it is for Jefferson and Dodge Counties in Wisconsin.
Great App!! Bad for marriage!!
I take the iPad to bed every nite with 5-0 radio playing. It plays in the background and I can turn off the screen, put the iPad under my pillow and listen to activity all nite. Wife hates it, Oh well...
I like the top 100 feature, I only wish they would display the number of listeners on the screen of the top 100... Maybe even the num listeners now and the average listeners over the past ten days at that hour so u could see higher than average listener activity, indicating something noteworthy may be happening...
Great app guys, keep up the good work!!
