Police Scanner X (eXperimental) is the latest Police Scanner from BEROBO Inc.
The app is great. It works very well. However, it does shut down when the screen goes off. It would be nice if it could run in the background, until I turn it off. Other than that, it is great. UPDATE: The shutting down is very annoying. It doesn't last more than 10 minutes before I have to start over, which drops my rating from 3 to 2.
Worthless. It was hovering overhead, but I could not find the cause. The helicopter tuned in for a short time, but it wouldn't connect to either wifi or mobile service. It downloaded another app without any issues. Manhunt underway for the shooter. It would have been better to start with valuable information than to keep trying. worthless!
Although there are some issues, I still enjoy the app and listen to as much as I can. Not all channels will be shown in my region. It may occasionally pick up the signal and play audio on my smartphone. Audio can become choppy or unrecognizable as the app switches between pause and play. The last issue is that sometimes the notification bar for play/pause will not disappear when I force close the app until it restarts my phone.
This is a great tool for my county and the city of my hometown. It would be nice if it didn't shut off randomly after 10 minutes or get glitchy. To get it working, you have to force close the app and start again. It's only 30 seconds late when it comes on, but it happens when there are things happening in the area. It's probably due to 2nd party steamer radio broadcasting. It's something I love and won't delete.
It does its job and appears to work a bit faster than the other police scanner apps my friends use. The app appears to be able to transmit information much faster than others. It would have been 5 stars if it weren't for 2 issues ..... The app is not playing when I hit play. I thought there was not enough action at first, but after listening for quite a while nothing happened. Sometimes it can seem impossible to understand because of the static nature of communications. It can't be possible for them to communicate that way (police, ambulances, etc.) otherwise they wouldn't know. We can't always expect to get the same quality, but I feel that we should be able at least to communicate with them occasionally.
It works well most of the time. The only problem I had with the app was when it started playing staticy. This happened twice. I also experienced an app that broadcast with two simultaneous plays. I ended up powering down and restarting the phone to fix the issue. The app seems great otherwise!
Just installed it for a couple hours and I just had the chance to hear. This app was great. It doesn't have any settings that can be customized. If your screen turns, the app will stop and you won't be able to scan channels. It would be wonderful to have more options, but it is frustrating that I feel like I am controlled by the apps limitations. Sorry, we don't have another app.
The app wouldn't turn off. The app continues to run in the background. There was only one way to stop it from continuing, and that was uninstalling it. The force stop didn't do anything. You can hear the other police scanner apps, which have more channels. Clear, choppy and clear again in the back. This one needs a lot of work.
It was easy to start and the listening experience is quite pleasant. The news about where to avoid was provided before all the channels. Edited: I had to remove a star as it would not stop playing. It would play the stream, then close it and delete all running apps. But the stream would start back up.
This app is my favorite! It's an amazing app. I will use it to find out what is happening and avoid the chaos. It would be 5 stars, but it sometimes has playback issues so ill need to force close the browser and reopen it 2 to 3 times to get it working. On a scale from 1-5 ......( ("5 being that i would recommend it to everyone") I'd give it 5 ......work in Arapahoe County/Aurora City police and Denver County/District 5.
The scanner picks up all the relevant public agencies within my locality and isn't too intrusive. This app makes it easy to access the public agencies. This app is recommended if your smartphone has a speedy processor.
This app is not the only one that doesn't receive certain frequencies. It affects all other similar apps. My home is in rural areas near major highways. Status offline is the status of this highway patrol transmitter. Accidents involving cars are more frequent now, so the highway will close. Az. Az. De
It hasn't been updated for years, and it doesn't seem like these stations are LIVE. Florida seems to be in the middle of a hurricane evacuation according to the dispatcher. When I listen from Florida, it doesn't seem like it's actually live. It worked at first, but now it doesn't work every single time. It has stalled and I'm not sure how many times. This app needs to be fixed.
Sorry, I was turned off at the beginning. I attempted to find my city. The search function was available. I entered the name of my town, hit enter, and nothing happened. There wasn't a message telling me that the search failed. Next, I tried scrolling down to find my state. That didn't work. Broadcastify was the system I wanted to use, but it was too complicated for me.
It is wonderful when it works. Even with full service, I still hear static all the time. It is wonderful to hear all the details when everything is clear. Mecklenburg County Police scanner was removed from the list. That defeats my purpose. It is important to me to know what's happening in my local area. This makes me feel more secure.
