There are ad supported apps, there are ads in apps that afford one the ability to test an app before purchasing, and then there's garbage like this where the ads are so constant and stacked so that one can't even navigate through the simplest of features. Launched three times, trapped twice by relentless ads popping up with the only way out of the assault by exiting. This is one I would never consider purchasing and that won't remain installed a moment longer. Hard pass.

Can't beat Free. They try to trick U into thanking U have to purchase something. But if U just hit the X you don't have to. It says something about a 3-day trial Or two other options that are pay by the month subscription or a year subscription I believe. But U can just X out and it still works. I'm sure there's probably benefits to getting their subscription. But I'd rather just get the little bit that it gives for Free without having to pay. I would if I was more into it.

The main thing I like about this app is the emergency/Breaking notifications from all over the country. Also, when possible you can find the HAM bands in the description of your stream, I thought that was pretty cool for us hams/preps. The audio is good quality, the stream has a small delay, so when you hear a key in it happened 40 seconds to a minute before hand. But that is to be expected when streaming a radio freq on to the web. EDIT Also, the adds are not super intrusive.
