    MoMojo Technologies have just released the first version of Police Radio for Android. We invite you to check it to check us out on the market. Though this is the first release many new features are planned for upcoming versions including GPS/Map support, additional channel sources, channel categorization, etc. Please feel free to check us out. All feedback is welcome. Its a great alternative to Police Stream also.

    This kind of app would e so illegal in the UK that you would lose your phone and your freedom for a couple of months.

    I don't see anything online that says scanners are illegal in the UK.

    Scanners are not illegal but what is is listening to any emergency services or armed services communications especially the police and as this app is purely for that purpose it would be illegal. In the UK that is.

    And how does the APP get the data in the first place? Then does it narrow your results to your area?

    I listen to a scanner all day, Police, Fire, Railroad... When I am out, I just take my 200 channel Radio Shack scanner with me... beats the heck out of trying fiddle with an application. I photograph trains as a hobby, and I would much rather have the portable with me, than trying to mess around with a feed on my Droid, besides, I doubt that app covers AAR radio feeds anyway.

    I love my Droid, but there are some functions/apps that don't make much sense, this might be one of them.

    Yes and No, you better check your local laws, it is illegal to have a police scanner in a car in some places/states in the US.

    Here is the law in Michigan.

    Michigan Legislature - Section 750.508

    I would suggest you check your local/state laws.

    There is a 24 hour return policy on all apps through the Market. Try the app out, you don't like it, return it within 24 hours.

    I can get this for free just by bookmarking any of the many, many sites that stream police/fire/emergency feeds.

    $1.49 is 50% more than I've paid for apps that do something unique and special.

    $1.49 is not that much dude...

    locale = $10
    Rom Manager = $3.99
    Homerun Game = $5.99 or something

    there's a lot more expensive apps than this one... guy's gotta eat! ;)

    I agree, but this is like me charging someone $1.49 to hit ctrl-D on their keyboard for them. :)

    Oh, well, if the app is useful for someone then that's great. Usefulness will set the market price.

    There are a whole lot of sites that do radio feeds. If you like listening to other cities across the country, then it's a great thing.. I use my scanner for information pertaining to what I am doing at that moment, and fiddling with a radio feed, especially if it buffers too much, to me is kind of useless.

    I know lots of other people like to listen to scanner feeds from other places, so, I am sure someone would find a good use for the app.

    Now, all we need is ATCS Monitor for the Droid, and I would be a very happy man.

    yes but this app allows you to search for feeds by Country>State>County> ...
    Very handy when traveling just click through the list instead of messing with a website.

    Another police scanner app uses RadioReference.com - Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference as their source. As for the "try b4 buy" you have 24 hours to get a refund if it doesn't work for you.
