★ Background audio in iOS4: stream keeps playing after you tap the home button.
★ Double-tap the home button to bring up the multi-tasking UI and slide over the remote controls to pause/resume playing. In addition, you can lock the device, bring up the remote controls on the lock screen and pause/resume playing. And it responds to pause/resume from external microphones as well.

Awesome scanner radio app
Very cool features, let's you listen to place, fire, EMS your your local area. I found more of these in my area than I can handle. This app is very recommended if you want to know what is going on and not rely just on TCV and such.
Great scanner radio
The scanner part works great. Just wish it didn't go down as often. Not sure what causes it. Its real nice to be able to hear all the fire traffic once the companies arrive on scene.
It's a must have app for a buck for all u fire buffs out there.
