    Police Scanner's review

    "The best stations in the US"


    Police Scanner is, without a doubt, one of the best apps to listen to the radio. It offers users the chance to listen to hundreds of broadcasts from the US so they can hear about the latest fires, weather, and police alerts, and connect to other listeners.


    You can access a top 50 list of the best and most listened-to channels, check out the more recent alerts, and explore channels by theme and location. Connect directly to public safety, weather, fire, or railway broadcasts. You can also choose to be notified when a lot of people are listening to a channel and know if something important is happening.


    Unfortunately this app has ads and sometimes, pretty invasive ones at that. It only works in the US.

    Listen to police and fire departments of your region on your phone.

    Listen to live audio of fire scanners, weather radios, and amateur radio repeaters from the United States.

    * Add scanners you listen to the most to your Favorites list for quick access.
    * View the top 50 scanners that have the most listeners
    * Browse the Alert feeds to show active working major incidents
    * Browse the directory of scanner feeds by location or by genre (public safety, weather, railroad, etc).
    * Configure alerts to have the app notify you when lots of people are listening to a scanner (indicating that something big may be happening).
    * Sleep timer

    Explanation of why various permissions are needed:
    The "Modify global system settings" permission is needed in order for the app to be able to change the device's "Wi-Fi Sleep Policy" to "Never" (but only with your permission). When you run the app, it will check the setting and ask you if you would like for it to be changed to "Never" (if it's set to something else) so that the scanner audio won't be interrupted if the screen turns off while you're listening over Wi-Fi.
