Get the News When it Happens

Traditional police scanners have predated radio apps and internet broadcasts. These analog devices have existed for many decades and you can buy one for less than $100 at any electronics shop.

Unfortunately, scanners are dependent on line-of-sight radio wave propagation. It means that you can only get crisp clear signals if there are no physical obstructions between the transmitting tower and your radio.

If you happen to live in a place where there are elevated obstructions such as mountains, hills, trees, and tall buildings, your scanner radio will surely experience poor reception to no reception at all.

With Police Scanner Radio Pro, you will never have to worry about signal disruptions because broadcasts are delivered via mobile data, 3G, EDGE, or WiFi. It doesn’t matter where you are; as long as you have Internet connection, this app will deliver broadcasts that matter to you. You can follow your local county’s live EMS and police reports even if you’re thousands of miles away from home.

Police Scanner Radio Pro gives you the news as it happens. It will also keep you entertained anytime with its comprehensive lists of music stations and Internet radios.

Best Features

Police Scanner Radio Pro offers more than 40,000 stations that broadcast news, music, sports, EMS, police and firefighter radio, public safety announcements, traffic reports, trains and airport radios, and many more. Every imaginable station that you can think of is available in the app.

This application allows you to tune in to radio stations around the world. It offers a list where you can pick stations by country. You can also search music by genres, artists, albums, and specific songs.

One of the best features of this app is its ability to track the source of the broadcast. An interactive high-resolution map will be presented on screen which shows that exact location of the station.

Lastly, this online scanner radio offers extra features such as an alarm clock, a timer, a record function with sharing option, and customizable background, and skins.
