5/5 stars


I think this app is great it let's me listen to every popular city around me. I heard 4 hrs of non stop excitement. Best app ever. Wish they would contact me in person.

3/5 stars

Best Scanner App I've tried so far.

Great App. I've tried Police 5.0 and a few others. This is the best one. It doesn't crash (the App doesn't but the feed error's out sometimes causing you to hit stop and play again), has a lot of feeds and actually works!
However, you do get a lot of 'Dead Air' while listening but overall is the best one so far.

4/5 stars

So far so good

I just got it yesterday and so far is ok . Is faster that order apps ;0) I'm going to try for a couple of day and I'll write another review
