This update is major overhaul, rebuilt from the ground up. The interface is much cleaner and more intuitive. Audio is much improved: clearer and less “clipping”. Also love the addition of the text showing the Latest Fire/Rescue incident which updates whenever there is a new incident. This helps in the event a listener misses the audio dispatch. Well done.
I have loved the older version of this app and enjoyed it for years until very recently it began to sporadically stop working. So, I was super excited to see the latest update. I did get a black screen, at first, so I reinstalled and now I can see the new graphics.. But, no matter what I try, I have no audio. I know there’s transmission going on through another scanner app. I also miss the source of the call but that may be the same problem as the audio. Really disappointing.
Like anyone, I want what I pay for to work. (For that matter, I want what I don't pay for to work...) As a commuter I was excited to find the live traffic cams, but alas, they crash every time, causing me to have to open the app again. I'm giving 3 stars because the app has great potential and because the "monitor/scanner" part seems to work reliably. I don't love that I forked out $.99 and it doesn't work great but presumably the developers will fix it. I don't think a dollar is going to break me but I do like stuff to work without inconvenience.
Purchase this app a while back and recently re-download it just to realize why I deleted it in the first place. It is so poorly designed that it took me 10 minutes just to figure out how to switch stations. The poorly designed graphics are the best thing about it, and that’s about it… not worth it, even if it was free.
I was so excited to download this app & start using it. However, whenever I use the traffic cams the app crashes - that is so frustrating. Hopefully this will be fixed soon because every other part of this app is great!
As of a few days ago, the app stopped working on my wife’s phone. It is an iPhone 7 with the latest iOS. It just shows a splash screen for about two seconds and then disappears. It worked fine up until the new version. Still works on my iPhone SE.
It plays ads constantly even if you pay for it! It used to be perfect for catching calls on because of the delay in broadcasting but now it just plays ads. I don’t not recommend it unless it is changed back to the way it was!
If you live in the Frederick Md area this app is a must have. If I hear police/fire/rescue activity I can find out what's going on right away. The traffic and web cams are great. It's like an instant traffic report. I also love the list of police '10' codes they put on there.
The Frederick Scanner Pro is a live audio stream of Frederick, Maryland Police, Fire, Rescue, and Highway communications. Just start the app, press the green button and you're tapped into the Frederick scene. Flip the "Fire Only" switch and you'll hear only Fire, Rescue, EMS communications.
