    probably just uses publicly broadcasted scanner frequencies (ie ones that have been posted on the internet for streaming purposes). the droid is incapable of doing this on its own.

    I purchased policestream but since my city/county isn't covered it's more of a cool gimmick than a useful app. Still very cool though. I stream it via bluetooth to the Sync system in my Ford. Good times.

    +1 on PoliceStream. I'm an officer and use it at work all the time to hear other agencies around me.

    Agreed, love PoliceStream. I don't need it since I'm not breaking the laws or enforcing them, but it's interesting to listen to and for me has a lot of local agencies. One of the coolest apps I've found yet!

    There is no trial program for this, can anyone tell me if it covers Wilmington Delaware or surrounding area. Zip 19808. Thanks

    Edit: Totally forot about the 24 hours trial period. If my area is not included will just return before the 24 hours is up.

    This was one of the first paid apps I downloaded when I got the Droid. The app works good, I just wish it had a Favorites list to save your most listened to streams. You have the ability to move them to the top of your list, but thats it.
