Want to listen to police or emergency vehicle radio? Yeah, there’s an app for that. It’s called ‘Scanner 911′, and with it you can listen in on the likes of the LAPD, NYPD, and all sorts of other EMS radio channels from around the US and Canada. But not only can you listen to live radio, you can record live broadcasts to give them a listen later on (not sure how I feel about that feature…) There’s also a list of the 50 most active channels, and the developers are always adding new channels all the time. Rest assured, each time you pop this one open and give it a listen, something new and exciting will come of it (ok, maybe not ALL the time).
You can pick up Scanner 911 for $0.99 in the App Store (iTunes link).
