Police Scanner FREE is the application that allows you to connect to more than 5000 police, rescue, and fire radio feeds. It was published by Logicord LLC for mobile platforms only: Android and iOS. You can download Police Scanner FREE on Google Play or Apple Store for free, but it offers additional in-app purchases.
In the Police Scanner FREE, you can browse through the more than 500 channels, connect to them, and listening to the real conversations between polices and fire teams. It allows you to get the latest news about the situation in your area. In addition, you can see not only the channels near you but also monitor the most popular channels. The Police Scanner FREE review showed that among the channels, there are also the international ones, not only Americans.
By default, the application uses the dark color palette. In the background, the developers placed black color. Blue is used to highlight the content blocks or menu tabs’ names. And blue is used for the rest text information. On several screens, you can meet the situation when black text is put on the blue block or vice verse. It is one of the things that we did not like in the application during the review.
The information in the application is broken into the block cards. On the main page, you can see six cards, two in the row: Directory, Hot, Near Me, Lingo, Favorites, and Info. The Hot menu tab allows you to monitor the most popular police, fire, and rescue channels. All of them are also displayed using cards, but there is only one card in the row. Here, you can find the information about the number of listeners, does it public or private channel. Clicking on it, you open the channel’s page. Here, the users can adjust the volume, see the time, and the number of listeners. All interface elements are placed on a sufficient distance from each other.
