- Listen to feeds in the background. You can run other apps while listening to the police. Pause the feeds via the media controls on your device.
- Automatically attempts to reconnect the feed if you lose the connection.
- Listen to feeds on your desktop/laptop computer. Email yourself a link to the feed, and open that link on your browser or with your favorite mp3 player.
- Ability to add custom feeds
- Chat with other users
- The web browser also automatically detects feeds and integrates it with the radio. Now you can add feeds from the web by simply tapping on the feeds link via our browser.
- Share feeds with your friends by email. They do not need to buy this app to listen with you. They can listen in on a PC, Mac, laptop, tablet, Android, iOS, and more.
- Worldwide coverage. Listen to feeds from the United States, Canada, Australia and more. Our app is always expanding and looking for new police radios to tap into.
- List scanners by county. Dont just list all feeds in a state, get only the ones that are from your city/county.
- Integrated map that finds your location and the location of the feed. Now you can find where the action is happening and follow along.
- Built-in police/EMS/fire/military codes and phonetic alphabet for easy interpretation. Good for any beginners who do not have the proper training and have trouble remembering what the codes mean.
- Save your favorites to the front screen of the app for quick one-tap access.
- This app will dynamically grab a new list of sources so that you will always be the first to get any new police feeds out there.
- See the popularity of each feed. Each feed lists the number of listeners who are following the action along with you.
- Choose new skins or make your own. Skins can be any photo you choose from your photos library.
- New police feeds and others are added on an hourly basis, so keep checking if we added yours recently.

*Note: Our paid app called 5-0 Radio Pro adds even more feeds - Search for "5-0 Radio Pro Police Scanner" on iTunes to find it.

It is legal in most countries to listen to police feeds. However, it is illegal in some places to use this app to aid in the commission of a crime or to pose as a police officer when you are not. It may also be illegal to use it while driving. Please consult your local laws before using this app outside of your home.

Is it fake?
Its very real. Each feed comes from a person in that region with an expensive police scanner sharing the signal with you via the internet.

The delay between the real radio feed and this app is only a few seconds depending on buffering and internet speeds.

Great app I was expecting it to be medioker but it was great quality sound no static all the codes are right there so anyone can understand whats going on has a huge selection of local stations
I would have to say all the ones I have downloaded and I have downloaded Im thinking 95% if not all the scanners and this one has to be the best by far!! Keep up the great work dev team !!
I really enjoy this app. You can sure pass the time listening to the action all over the world.

Some bad moments

you forgot to mention in the update notes that you added an annoying "exclusive deals from our Partner" screen. instead of that you wrote "bugfixing". fu.

The scanner doesnt play at all for my area, been like this for a few weeks
This app is a waste of time Im from Toronto and it didnt have any police divisions and it had none in the surrounding areas..this is total garbage
Cant get any RCMP channels , 1 fire department channel in Courtney, BC. No other channels there is dozens of digital radio channels here, in Nanaimo, no ambulance, no police, 2 fire Departments, waste of downloads
It looks like it could be a good app, but I guess living in the boonies of Vancouver isnt good enough — though there are a few smaller towns in BC that are represented. Only 2 million+ people in the metro Vancouver area. Deleting this. Wish I could use it.
