Juicy Development Releases Police Scanner 1.2

Posted July 16, 2009 at 12:53pm by iClarified
Juicy Development has released an update to the popular iPhone and iPod Touch application, Police Scanner. This critically acclaimed iPhone application allows listeners to listen to police, fire, and EMS activities around the world. Version 1.2 sports a sharp new user interface, faster access to streams, and improved database and GPS performance.

With over 1100 national and international EMS streams, Police Scanner offers the largest selection of police, fire, and emergency services streams available for the iPhone in one application.

"Many of our users are police and firefighters, so when we planned our update we wanted to ensure that they could pick up the stream that they need in a hurry," said David Kyle, project manager.

In addition to Police Scanners faster interface, improved functionality and universal compatibility, customers will notice a sleek look and feel to the application. The new version runs well on a wireless LAN, the 3G network, or on the Edge network and is compatible both 2.x and 3.0 devices.

With over 1100 active streams in 7 countries and 25,000 plus daily users, Police Scanner is the most far-reaching emergency stream application in the iTunes store. "Because our customers depend upon our application for up-to-date emergency information, it's crucial that we provide as much coverage as we possibly can," said Kyle.

Anyone who discovers a compatible stream can simply email the company or send a message through the company web page. New streams will usually be added within a few days. "If you send in a request saying add Detroit, we will get to it; if you go find a stream in Detroit and send us a link, we usually add those within a few hours." said Kyle.

As additional stations, counties, and cities are added, the database is automatically updated and the stream instantly becomes available to all Police Scanner users. Police Scanner uses the location-aware technology built into the iPhone to help users locate streams near them, or allows them to search through a list of all available streams from across the country. A favorites features allows users to quickly locate streams they want to find again.

Police scanner is a must have for on-call volunteer fire fighters, news crews, emergency responders and hobbyists. Fans of Police Scanner are now able to purchase Police Scanner gear in the Juicy online store.

Not all areas broadcast an iPhone compatible stream. This is still a new technology for many police, fire, and dispatch centers. A stream from your local city may not yet be available.

Pricing and Availability:
Police Scanner is available now for the regular price of $2.99 (USD). Requires 2.0 software update and a network connection.

Well, I would find this app interesting but on the app store page it says to go to to find a list of cities/departments supported. But that page has no such list. Sketchy support if you ask me...

There's a link in the corner of that page with the list that says Police Scanner Sources. The list is clearly there.

The List - Looks Good, I made one myself for 1.x but never bothered updating it. I may just do so. Sure there at least 3 at the moment, but there is always room for improvements :)
