I've been using this app for years. Ever since my iPod gen 2 was new. It has the ability to access emergency services radio from all over the world. But for me, I primarily use it to find out what's going on in my home town. When the fire whistle goes off it's nice to be able to listen in and find out what's going on and where. It can help to alleviate some anxiety for people like me, who can be a bit paranoid about their loved ones safety. It's pretty impressive, it even has my small towns emergency services radio on there and it's just a small town with a population of around 2000. There's no draw back to having this app. It doesn't take up much storage space on your data drive and even the free versions adverts are barely noticeable. Check it out, there's no reason not to really.
I've used this app for several years and gladly paid for the upgrade. I'm in public safety, and this app is my backup to my portable and pager. Here are a few notes on getting the most out of the app... The audio is a data stream (like listening to an Internet radio station). Therefore, it uses both battery/adapter power. Unless you have either unlimited data or a wifi connection, you might go over your limit. Also, it's a good idea to use a power adapter and not batteries. The audio typically comes from local scanners connected to the Internet. Therefore the quality may vary. Also, there may be a lag from the time a station transmits, until you actually hear it. All in all, it's a great app and highly recommended.
One thing to understand with this app is that there is a delay and transmission. I use it to listen to the Fire Station my son is a Explorer at and he often text me concerning calls he is on when I’ve not even heard the call on the scanner. My best guess is that it is roughly a 13 to 15 minute delay but as long as you understand that it’s fantastic. I would have to pay roughly $400 for a high quality scanner to get real time dispatches and I would have to remain in the transmission coverage area to hear the call. This app allows me to hear the calls from anywhere I have a connection to cellular or the web. Well worth the upgrade to pro to get rid of the ads and I think the Pro version stays in the background better then the free app does.
