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.



  • Good Scanner

    By Dzdavis1
    Was able to monitor the forest fire near me.
  • Best app

    By Phxshadow
    After trying many apps finally one that works good. Scan 6 channels at once was the selling point for me. Makes it so much easier to monitor many more channels at once.
  • Very Nice

    By WestCoastLee
    I use this app all the time on my iPhone 8+ and my iPad Pro. It is a must have :)
  • I paid for this 😵

    By Bubbakins63
    No instructions on how to properly set it up. It sounds quite promising at the Apple store and was $3.99 = credit squandered
  • Worked well for 2 days

  • Not bad

    By RogerD dodger
    Getting the kinks out but I like
  • 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

    By cleamer200
    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.
