  • Fails Often

    by Thieftaker

    Have had Pro version for more than a year. Works only intermittently. Often declares 'station not found." Very slow to activate. Does not live up to promise. Not worth the money..

  • Police pro

    by BurnWar

    by Ich bin mude.

    Good application. Very interesting selection of world/international HD stations. Can be a bit glitchy at times, but well worth the money.

  • Phenomenal App

    by Paul Antola

    This app is miraculous! Totally easy format and great quality in sound and subject matter. I have recommended it to my friends and family.

  • Sorry App

    by Smokie22

    Ever since they took away most of the frequencies and added ham radio frequencies it is not worth it.


    by WOPRCAT

    Good app love the easiness of using. The only item I would like see is genre section by state or something like that. But still good to go.

  • Great App

    by Jjulien35

    Great app! I listen to it every night. I just wish they would update the feeds in my local area... Towns are switching to digital..

  • Great app!

    by Jbrad627

    Love the app. They have all the large agencies in the DFW area and many of the mid sized. Looking forward to then adding the Highland Village feed.

  • Frustrated

    by LostASoda

    Can never listen to my German music any more

  • Wanna check if the "Lawdogs" are doing their job?

    by Pis@ed off

    I like this app. I was listening to "Metro Dade PD " on it. I got so into this one call that I checked the local news station in Miami the next day to get the whole story on the call I was listening to. Like I said,you wanna see if the "boys in blue" are doing their job,listen in on their calls. Great app.

  • A bunch of crap!

    by Mario kart Master

    I like it really but it just pisses me off because once it crashes, it always crashes! I'll fix the rating when this is fixed

  • Adequate for chicago

    by jlpcubsfan

    This is the best of what's out there for keeping up with my neighborhood, CPD district 24. Wish there were more feeds of local coverage, but that may not be up to the app developer.
