Can only use via paid subscription, no free with ads option. And all the local emergency response units are "offline". It just continously counts down from 30 seconds to "reconnect", but it never does, just resets the counter to 30 seconds and begins countdown again. Then you have to go through the process to canceling the subscription that you never got to use in the first place.

Hi, sorry for any confusion. This app is indeed free to use. You can click the white "x" on the left top of the subscription page to skip the free trial. The content is supported by volunteers so maybe it is not everywhere and 24*7 online. For more info, please reach us at contact@policescanner.us. We'll try our best to help you with that. - Fiona

I had another scanner app I used to enjoy but it hasn't been working properly in months. I'm liking this one but for some reason it sounds more muffled than my last scanner and is hard to understand a lot of times. Also there so many disruptive ads. They are very annoying, hard to get out of, and might be the reason I end up deleting.

Its horrible. All I get, nonstop alerts from cities no where near me. I have listened to my local stations and I feel as if most everything is filtered or blocked. There's no way in a city like mine that the radio only gets used once every 3-5minutes.. I never received the "notification" that I was about to be billed or canceled now, and I'll be damned if I can find any resource in my "Google play store" that gives the option to cancel as instructed when I downloaded the app.
