Well, I finally got help with this app! And now I enjoy it all the time. A helper has helped me with the small things, like being able to see! I have missed listening to my local police scanner. I have a friend close by that agreed to help get my new phone hooked up to my scanner. My friend is amazing. I now can tell where to push to turn it on or off and adjust my volume. THANK YOU! I LOVE IT! Now, phone companies need to help vision impaired people to be more independent. I use Google!!!

I've tried this app for seven days. I tried several times each day to see if it would connect. The two local services say offline. I was able to get a few places to work but most were offline. There were more offline then ones that connected and worked. Can't imagine they are all offline, likely things changed and the database isn't up to date. If your lucky enough to be in an area that works this would probably be a good app, but for my area its worthless.

I like that this is a free app and it's super useful for the times. I've tried other police scanner apps but I can hear the voices most clearly on this one! The app itself is very intuitive, as it will send a written notification of fire alarms or emergency events in my region. When the protests started, this app just showed up on my main page to help me keep up to date with what's going on...I would appreciate it if I could hear more countries/towns!!
