Police Scanner

Police Scanner


Listen to police and fire departments and NOAA weather of your region on your phone.

Listen to live audio of fire scanners, weather radios, and amateur radio repeaters from the United States.

Features:
* Add scanners you listen to the most to your Favorites list for quick access.
* View the top 50 scanners that have the most listeners
* Browse the directory of scanner feeds by location or by genre (public safety, weather, railroad, etc).
* Browse thru all the available NOAA weather radio channels.
* Configure alerts to have the app notify you when lots of people are listening to a scanner (indicating that something big may be happening).
* Sleep timer

Explanation of why various permissions are needed:
The "Modify global system settings" permission is needed in order for the app to be able to change the device's "Wi-Fi Sleep Policy" to "Never" (but only with your permission). When you run the app, it will check the setting and ask you if you would like for it to be changed to "Never" (if it's set to something else) so that the scanner audio won't be interrupted if the screen turns off while you're listening over Wi-Fi.
