    I found a good Police Scanner app to put on EVO. It's called Scanner Radio in the Market Place, it's free, works good and has some nice features but notice some of the scanner feeds that there some that over modulates the back speaker it starts crackling a bit so it good to start with a volume about half way and then work up.

    Can you tell me if it has a feed for Washington DC Metropolitan Police?

    I used to work there so I'd def pick this up if it had them on there.

    I had this app on my BB. It was one of the 1st I put on my EVO. I'm also a feed provider for one of the Atlanta area departments.

    I use the LAPD. Only certain times though. Like if something major happens around my neighborhood maybe they talk about whats going on.

    Downloaded it after seeing this post. Nice app! I've seen several websites like this, but didn't realize someone had made an app for it!

    I have this and love it, Living in Baltimore it is an asset to know where the dirtbikers are so I can avoid them. I travel from site to site for work and want to avoid any possible confrontations if necessary.

    I released the first version of the app into Android Market on April 22nd, the BlackBerry version has been available since last July.

    Is there any way to get the Police scanner App to work via Bluetooth?

    I just d/led it. How long should it take to connect to each station? I haven't been able to get it to connect to any of my local ones. They're not offline and they do have listeners.

    edit: nevermind, works after I closed app and reloaded it

    I like the app but is there anyway to monitor more than one "radio" or feed at a time? I would like to have it actually scan through a list of favorites and just play when there is something being transmitted. Then have the ability to skip that if I want and move onto the next channel. This would really make it like an actual scanner.

    I just downloaded it and was thinking the same thing....makes me want to go find my dad's old scanner so I can have multiple frequencies being checked at all times. Cool app nonetheless!

    If your Bluetooth device supports the "media" profile your phone should route the audio from the media player to it automatically, if your device supports only the handsfree-type profile you won't be able to use it to listen.

    Nope, this isn't possible since the app is actually just playing an MP3 audio stream, you would need a real scanner for that capability.

    Doesn't Android have the ability to play two or more different audio streams at the same time?
