Once you "tune" to a station, the app is fine, but it does not "scan". Seems like it's impossible to mimic the classic real scanner that listens for activity on multiple frequencies and then plays those. This is one station at a time. To make matters worse, it doesn't automatically start your last saved station and requires a couple of clicks just to find again in your favorites. It's a nice app, but seriously needs improvements in UI design.

This would be a great app if you didn't have to keep your screen lit up, (at least it was that way on my Samsung,) and it weren't interrupted by an ad, which mutes the scanner until you deal with/close it, at least once every 5 minutes. If those issues are only like that in the free version, it was bad enough to turn me off from even considering the pay version.

Volume level is a little low and free version has lots of fullscreen ads that convinced me to pay 3 bucks to get rid of them. On the plus side quite a few choices for what to listen to and it will play in the background when other apps are being opened and it isn't a memory hog. I recommend treating the free version as a free trial so to speak and if you like just pay the $3 as it is worth it.
