Scanner911 is a worthy alternative to the essential app. The interface is very good and some may like it better than the essential app. The content is very similar to the essential app. We wish the developers offered a free version of this one. That is what puts its competitor over the edge. The two apps are very similar and some may prefer this one to the essential app.
What is it about?
Scanner911 Pro gives you exclusive features in addition to the basics. Not only can you listen to the emergency stations, but pull a slider to hear an instant replay, view a visual level history, and edit or upload recordings. Listen live, check the police code chart, and play it in the background.
Why we love it
For emergency stations, Scanner911 Pro provides fire, police, air traffic control, and more with an option to replay what you hear.
