* Add scanners you listen to the most to your Favorites list for quick access.
* Browse the directory of scanners by location or genre (public safety, air traffic, weather, railroad, etc).
* Enable notifications to be notified when lots of people (such as over 1000, for example) are listening to any scanner (indicating that something big is happening).
* Listen to RadioReference.com's audio archives to listen to audio that's been archived over the past 30 days. Note: You *must* have an account on RadioReference.com and purchase their "Premium Membership" ($15 for 6 months) in order to access their archives using the app.

To see whether or not your area is available, go to radioreference.com/apps/audio/ , then click on your state, and then click on your county.

NOTE: To stop the scanner audio while you're not in the scanner app, click on the scanner icon in the bottom-left corner of the screen (you'll see it when the app is playing audio) and then click on the stop button on the screen you'll see.

The audio is provided by volunteers using real scanner radios. If your area is not available, see the menu in the app for information on how to get it added.

    Highly Recommended

    I purchased this app and find this a great app. I enjoy many hours of listening to local police/fire/em calls along with listening in other states.Very interesting. Hope to see more local stations available as updates i.e. Baltimore Co Police.

    Scanner

    Was looking to by a scanner when i came across this app, and it is amazing. I checked for my local area on the given web site prior to purchasing and was amazed to find it, as well as alot more. The top fifty being updated is a plus to hear what others are listening to. If your looking for a scanner this is it

    I really like this app

    This app is very easy and simple to use. Once you find your county or city and click on it, you can hear what is going on in your area. Then double click on the star on the top right corner and that will save this to your favorites.

    Great Value

    + Extremely easy to use; decent selections; streaming reliable on my several favorites

    - wish you could monitor more than one selection (if that's possible I couldn't find in help/support); detail on ham vhf repeters is limited - would like to know frequiencies/bands (vhf/uhf)

    Overall great value.

    Addictive

    It's reality audio that may or may not affect your life but is rarely boring. I bought it on a Saturday there was a phenomenal traffic snarl spilling from the highway onto the major street outside my neighborhood. 15000 mudbog athletes and their spectator friends overwhelmed us, but with this app we had a front row seat on the attemped solutions while we stayed home. It includes a list of "ten" codes so you can try to figure out what's going on. Drug overdoses, other medic calls, domestic incidents, a mugging at a supermarket and one report of an alarm going off that turned out to be a noisy air conditioner...it's short attention span theater. Run by volunteers! Wow! Thanks!

    Awesome app!

    This app is great! I absolutely love it! Not only can you listen to things going on in your area but also all around the world. I have listened to the Chile earthquake awhile back, police searching for armed men and currently the wildfires in Colorado.
