    Are police scanner apps illegal?

    I really wanna try one, but not sure if I should.

    If it's illegal by state, is it illegal in TX?

    Would it be on the market if it was illegal?

    Come on really? It's not like google checks what goes in the market...

    To the op it depends on the state, but most make it illegal to have one in your car. However, since it's on your phone chances are you're not going to get caught. But yes, it is technically "illegal" to have if you use it in the car. At home, no it's not illegal in most states

    It's absolutely legal. Radio Shack has been selling police scanners for decades.

    They are legal.....
