Solid performance with clear audio and helpful visual identification of sources as it scans, including a page of information about dispatchers being scanned on your chosen feed. Nice extras like push notices for parameters that you set to stay on top of rising emergency situations near or far. Handy lists of codes specific to the location being scanned included for quick, easy reference. Sleep timer. Map integration. Recording capability. And more. My favorite scanner app by far.

Love it! My only question and problem with it is that it I can't get it to automatically scan locally. It will scan automatically, and I get reports for other southeast states. None from mine, and I need help to fix it, please. I can't find a setting for editing or list by priorities like your own state and cities first. Just a thought.

It's a free app that atctually does what it says it will.. and it also allows you to record the radio broadcasts. The ads are of course a very unwelcome annoyance but they are not a deal breaker. This scanner app is an underappreciated, invaluable tool from which one can learn a surprising amount of "super secret squirrel" level intel about the inner workings and collective thought processes behind the increasingly bureau-like shade campaingns they are running.
