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.

Excellent app, great value!

I run this app day and night on my iPad 1 . It rarely goes off line. In my case I listen to Frederick, Md. frequencies. They have the left channel of the stereo playing state police and the right channel has the county. Great idea as you can separate the 2 easily.
Now I listen to a channel that has 5 services on it including the local airport tower. I am amazed that the iPad battery using this program in the background mode lasts for days. I can run this for 24 hours if the display is off and the battery won't go below 95%.

The only thing I would like to see is more info on the channels you listen too I.e. what service and exact freq.
It would be great to be able to tune a frequency.... I bet that is in the works anyway if you are reading reviews to decide on purchase this is Definitely an app worth checking out. Thanks for a quality affordable way to listen to even encrypted law enforcement on my phone... Great work

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.
