I have only been using it for about 24 hours. I haven't had any issues. I like the idea of knowing what is going on in my community, The surrounding areas and anywhere else, I choose to listen. I love that I get to know "NOW", It's much better than waiting for the local news paper to come out with what has already happened. Also, A Big (Thank you) to the person(s) involvedwith the broadcasting in/around my area. Awesome app!!!
I was very surprised at how good this program is - really. I bought a top of the line scanner (years ago) from Radio Shack and I had been toying with buying another. But decided to look at one for my Samsung S7 and see. The first 3 I downloaded were not what I was expecting and then found this one and LOVE it. All the features of a physical box store scanner and here, for free. I'm buying the "Pro" version because this is all I / you need.
Downloaded yesterday and everything worked fine, no it won't stay active in the background like it originally did. Ill start working in another app and it just shuts down. On top of that I tried reporting it from the app but it only lets you contact the local volunteer who is streaming it for them. In no way can you contact and get supply from the actual app..now that is worrisum..so basically once it's downloaded your on your own,,
This is a great app! Very easy to use, with a comprehensive list of feeds from around the US and world. I've been using it for several years, and recently had a small glitch that I couldn't figure out. I contacted the developer for help, and was amazed that I got an almost instant response and my issue was solved quickly. I highly recommend the Scanner Radio app by Gordon Edwards!
Thus was a good app until a few days ago. It suddenly stopped broadcasting my local scanner feed. I can see the feed, see how many listeners there are but it does not broadcast the sound. If they fix this then I will update my review. Now I need to find a scanner app that actually works.
This is as perfect as having a base or hand held emergency scanner without the expense of buying one. Wherever I've lived this app has the area police listed in it's library. Almost feel i stole from a scanner retail store. A 211 ! Time to get ya Gat Guy...
Numerous behind-the-scenes improvements to how the app receives and checks for alert notifications to decrease delivery times and to reduce battery usage and data consumption.
