Action Scanner - Police, Fire, EMS and Amateur Radio
By Geoffrey Rainville
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Keep up to date on all of the action with Police, Fire, Rescue, Ambulance, Amateur Radio, News and more all in the palm of your hand! Now you can hear it all right as it happens around you or from around the globe.
Why spend hundreds of dollars on an old-fashoned police scanner that will only receive local frequencies, when Action Scanner can tune you in to over 3,600 feeds in 19 countries worldwide?
With so many feeds to choose from, it would be crazy to expect you to pick just one. That's why we've designed Action Scanner to automatically scan up to 4 feeds simultaneously and seek out the action in real time. No other IOS scanner application can offer that!
* Scan up to FOUR stations at once - An Action Scanner Exclusive!
* Scan in the background - Action Scanner continues to run while you use other apps or turn your screen off to conserve your battery
* Find the most popular scanner feeds by state, county or world-wide
* Organize your favorite feeds into banks and switch between them instantly
* Find the active feed at a glance on the integrated map
* Configure the sleep timer and listen to the action as you fall asleep
* Beautiful user interface optimized for the Retina display
* Extensive coverage of Police, Fire, Emergency Services, Aircraft, Railroad, Amateur Radio Repeaters and more!
Please note that like all of the scanner apps in the App Store our feeds are provided over the Internet by individual volunteers, and we can't add or guarantee the availability of feeds for any particular area. We are confident that you will find plenty of information and entertainment regardless. If your locality isn't listed, consider becoming a feed provider - information is available at www.radioreference.com. This application and those like it in the App Store do not allow you to receive police radio frequencies directly on your device.
Action Scanner is the official iPhone app of Edmonton Fire Radio.

Best Police Scanner App
I'm a long time, over 35 years, of being an avid scanner fanatic & this is the closest to a real scanner as you can currently get on a smart phone app. I've tried nearly every other app & none are this good. It lets you have four banks of four channels to scan. You can set one bank for your favorite county or type of radio to monitor. So instead of only hearing one channel at a time you can monitor four at a time. You can switch to another bank of channels also. This is useful if you are in various locations. This will run in the background which is nice. It has several nice features.
Now the bad. Not nearly enough coverage of agencies. However, this the case with any scanner app.
Give it a try & I think you will like it.
Prepare4 - Scanning The Roads
When I'm out on the highways & bi-ways of my county I want to know what's going on - Scanner Alerts keeps me informed as I can scan through several agencies at one time.
this is the # one scanner app!!
I have use a few other scanner apps, this one is the best!! It would be even better if you can see the number of listeners. Overall excellent
