Useless. Wouldn't connect to channels, awkward interface, very annoying ad placement when you try to navigate anywhere, and a subscription-based service to get rid of them. All for an app that doesn't even seem to work. There are better police scanner aps out there. Don't waste your time, or especially your money, on this one.

Hi, sorry for that. As a startup, we have to support further development by integrating with ads. The content is supported by volunteers who used the real scanner to receive the content. So maybe it is not everywhere and maybe not 24*7 online. We will try our best to enrich the content. If anything else, please reach us at contact@policescanner.us.

Disappointed. It clearly states "LIVE RADIO" in description, but after reading the previous reviews I learned the broadcasts are recorded by "voulenteers" with real scanners, and then uploaded to internet. The information you're getting could be hours old. But it's a great app if you're just using for entertainment or curiosity. You just can't rely on it for safety. And the voulenteers must be getting bored and dropping out, as a good 75% of the channels are always Offline.

Terrible app. It's been successful in connecting about 10% of the time. Most of the time it says "connecting", then it counts down and says "reconnecting", and continued to count down. This goes on and on. I'll use an app that actually lets me hear the police bands. Oh, and while it's trying to connect, it repeatedly shows inappropriate ads. No thanks.

Hi, sorry for this inconvenience. We suggest you check your connection with the Internet. If it still doesn't work, could you please send contact@policescanner.us a video regarding your "Connecting" and "inappropriate ads" issue? You have my word that we'll do everything in our power to make it right for you. Thanks again! :-) - Fiona
