best scanner

I like this police radio scanner very much! I was going to purchase a scanner so I could have it on all day for background noise* thank you for supplying this radio scanner for me to download, I am so surprised how well it broadcasts I figured it would be full of static and cut in and out of the station but it does neither. I don't have to go to the store and purchase an expensive scanner ..Thank You................

Stopped Working

It stopped working, and so did it's partner, Radio 911 Police Scanner radio. Paid for both of them. No notifications of any updates or anything telling me they are working on them. So it makes me believe it's a 'rip off''. Why would they be listed in the Microsoft store is another question.

I'm not a expert on Scanners, but I like this program.

I've tried 2 of these programs, and this by far is a much better of the 2 I tried. I enjoy listening to our neighboring Town Police & Fire departments. I wish it would pick up our town, but maybe some day it will be included. Wife loves it, and uses it all the time now.

Beneficial without the equipment the cost

I enjoy listing to the railroad and ham radio operators, especially get the latest news on bad weather without outdate TV reports.

Had a very confidential relationship with Phoenix PD.

The technology related to Police Radio scanner is state of the art technology. I am from Phoenix, Arizona and now I reside in the Republic of Panama for confidential reasons. Your technology is the same as my own police scanner I had in Phoenix, pertaining to the quality of sound being so far away. Keep of the good work.

Keep Informed

Pretty good app, although it doesn't have a lot of locations, possibly because a lot of departments are using digital transmissions now.
