Customer Reviews

iScan 3.3

This app is user friendly. Transmission audibility is not a problem. The accompanying map is helpful. I have encountered a few locations that are indexed under the wrong state. The strongest asset of this app is support. Contact with iScan is prompt and personal. I am especially pleased with the willingness of iScan to add additional locations and agencies to the library of accessable agencies. I would REALLY be pleased if at some point iScan offered railroads and Coast Guard & maritime frequencies, which I also monitor, but they are available from internet sites.

Doesn’t work - don’t bother

doesn’t work at all - contacted support - and - nothing.
