I'm wondering what I get for paying the $40 for a year that I don't get with the free edition? The ads don't seem to interfere with the scanning function at all. Also, even with premium (paid), it stops scanning all by itself. Sitting there, working fine. Then stops scanning.. 🤷‍♂️ 🤷‍♀️ I liked it while it was working... canceling now before my 3 day trial is over. Bummer

I initially loved the app. It did have a 2 minute delay on my local areas. Now it seems as though It's always off line. No I can't even hear anything on my local scanner. It does act as if it's up and active, however, there is no radio transmission screen locations et cetera. You still really enjoy this app now. It's now just a hassle, and I will be uninstalling. Because it doesn't fit my local need anymore. I also enjoyed the fact that I could change the monitoring to the area of my travels

Hi, sorry about this inconvenience. The content is supported by volunteers who used the real scanner to receive the content and uploaded it to the internet. However, 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 support@policescanner.us. Thanks! :-) - Joey

pro tip... you dont actually need a subscription to this, AT ALL!!!! My friend taught me that there is a little "X" in the top left corner of the screen which you can press when the app boots up for the first time and requests that you purchase a "service package". The first experience I had with this app, I did the 30 day trial and then was out of scanner data from that point on :( after learning about this tip, I've since re-downloaded it, and enjoy an endless, FREE radio!!!
