Good app for many reasons. One it's not an app guarded to hound you to purchase it especially while your using your phone. Which can be annoying. It offers basically the same as the other apps. That's important unless you want to record. So it has a tiny bar down at the bottom of the app that displays ads. Not once have these ads ever come out of no where when your trying to do something on your phone these ads are only visible when your accessing the app itself. That's it just try it

Far better than the last 2 I've tried. Lighter on the phone. Meaning it doesn't slow down my dinosaur of a phone that only has 4gb internal memory and is completely full from just the system files that came preinstalled on the phone, and is like 10+ years old. It doesn't drain the battery as fast as the last two. And is fast and easy to find a local Police band. I would like to see the ability for it to auto change the station as you travel from one county to the next. Switching as soon as you cross the county line. It would come in super handy for people who drive for a living. Another Feature I would like to see is an auto translator, so when they start talking in their code talk it speech-to-text the conversation into plain English and whatever languages it supports.

4 stars because it works. Two other scanner apps I installed would not work. This app could be better by having the option to sort feeds by name as well as distance. Also, the distances are incorrect. The feeds in and around my town are shown as being about 12 miles away, while towns 10 or more miles away are shown as being closest to me. There is no feed shown with a distance of less than 6 miles away, so there is definitely a problem with distances. A separate tab for favorites would be nice.
