Police Scanner

Police Scanner was the first interactive police scanner for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The app allows users to alert others about emergency broadcast streams as they happen using text messages. The text messages appear on a small ticker in the app, allowing users to tune in to the stream being discussed.
