Keep up to date on all of the action with Police, Fire, Rescue, Ambulance, Amateur Radio, News and more all in the palm of your hand! Now you can hear it all right as it happens around you or from around the globe. Why spend hundreds of dollars on an old-fashoned police scanner that will only receive local frequencies, when Action Scanner can tune you in to over 3,600 feeds in 19 countries worldwide? With so many feeds to choose from, it would be crazy to expect you to pick just one. That's why we've designed Action Scanner PRO to automatically scan up to 6 feeds simultaneously and seek out the action in real time. No other IOS scanner application can offer that! Our top-of-the-line scanner offers the features that you want most: * Scan up to SIX stations at once - An Action Scanner Exclusive! * Scan in the background - Action Scanner continues to run while you use other apps or turn your screen off to conserve your battery * Find the most popular scanner feeds by state, county or world-wide * Organize your favorite feeds into banks and switch between them instantly * Find the active feed at a glance on the integrated map * Configure the sleep timer and listen to the action as you fall asleep * Beautiful user interface optimized for the Retina display * Extensive coverage of Police, Fire, Emergency Services, Aircraft, Railroad, Amateur Radio Repeaters and more! Please note that like all of the scanner apps in the App Store our feeds are provided over the Internet by individual volunteers, and we can't add or guarantee the availability of feeds for any particular area. We are confident that you will find plenty of information and entertainment regardless. If your locality isn't listed, consider becoming a feed provider - information is available at This application and those like it in the App Store do not allow you to receive police radio frequencies directly on your device. Action Scanner is the official iPhone app of Edmonton Fire Radio.



  • Needs Update

    Now gone is the ability to listen in the background since iOS 11 dropped. So if you're running iOS 11, don't bother buying it. Too bad. This app was top notch until the dev abandoned it.

    Fast and wide coverage. Can follow my Chicago South Side neighborhood here in Rural New Mexico. Staying relevant for a few dollars.
  • Unique App with Major Potential

    By Cindyloux4
    This is the only "scanner" app that I'm aware of that actually "scans". Most are simply streaming audio players with some sort of stream directory integration. And most are poorly designed and really ugly. The sequentially flashing indicators make me nostalgic for my first 4-channel Regency scanner that my parents bought me about 40 years ago! (Ugh. I'm old.) This app could use some polish. I'd love to see the developer return to active development, and perhaps enlist the aid of a designer. That being said, based strictly on functionality, the app is a good value and a worthwhile investment.
  • Fix your app

    You have been aware for quite a while that your app refuses to stay running in the background on iPhones. Please fix your app I can’t believe I wasted my money on such a broken app.
  • Multiple feeds....wonderful!

    By Gheti
    The ability to scan multiple feeds simultaneously makes this the best scanner app available!!! Feature request: the ability to set the priority for channels in a bank. If multiple channels are receiving, the feed with the higher priority will play. Nice work!

  • One of the BEST!!!

    By Radiokidd15
    This has a key feature that other scanners don't have, you can monitor multiple feeds at a time!
  • Does not appear to work.

    Downloaded this for my iPhone 7 Plus and I only get a blank screen. Very disappointing.
  • Best Scanner App...Period!!

    By Flamethrowerfrog
    I've tried quite a few scanner apps, but this one is by far the best. Four banks with six channels per bank equals 24 total channels (you can only scan one bank/six channels at a time). Very user friendly. Easy to find channels you want to store in banks. BG (background) feature allows you to listen while you open other apps. Also, great customer service. Any questions or problems are replied to and fixed quickly (NOTE: I've used this app for about eight years and have only had to contact customer service 2-3 times) I highly recommend getting the PRO version. It updates seamlessly with all IOS updates and is easily worth the few dollars it costs. Seriously, don't waste your time with other scanner apps. This one is the best!!
  • Love this scanner app but

    By Tarentumwatcher
    This is the best scanner app to get the channels that I want. I only have one problem sometimes, when I open the app it won't activate. I have to open it several times to get it to open. Other times it comes right up. It has on several occasions added the Detroit area on it own. It will also shut down on its own even though I have the BG button on.
