    Great police scanner app!!

    Wirelessly posted

    If you like to listen to police scanner this is the app for you!!! BBScanner.com: Listen to police and fire scanners on your BlackBerry - Home. 14 day trial and. Its only $3 to buy. You can still surf on your phone while you listen. Got it off the storm ota app. I know it works on the 9530 running .230. I'm listening to a foot chase now.

    That is awsome. Reminds me of when I was a kid listening to scanners old school style. And it even has my local PD. For $3 for sure, no brainier.

    I had it loaded on my Storm a few months back and some of the PD's I wanted to listen to were always off the air and the NJ State police would go off the air when I needed it most... Rush hour :Eyecrazy:
    Does anyone know if that changed? Regardless this is still a cool app to kill some time
    Also not sure if it still happens but if a call or message comes thru and you don't have it in silent or vibrate, the streaming resets to the beginning


    UPDATE: I downloaded the app again and it's much improved at least from the UI stand point and now it also has Rail and a couple other things. I'm going to keep it

    This is pretty awesome. You don't even have to search cause it will find stuff nearby. The app is only like 130 kb in size too. Great find!

    My buddy.... sorry Sun, I mean my BRO works for the local fire dept so now I can be creepy and spy on him :lmao:

    I have had this app for awhile now. the app is awsome. The company is always updating the app too. the app not only has police and fire channels but railroad and aircraft also. i was able to listen to the calif. wildfires and space shuttle control that comes up when things are going there. GREAT APP.

    Yes, that's the downside of this is the battery drain.

    NO JOKE... this application is capable of draining your battery faster than you can charge!!!

    I fell asleep listening to this 2 times and both times I woke up and the radio on my phone was shut off. What that means is that the battery drained down far enough to shut off the radio then the charger charged my phone all the way up.

    The phone gets very very hot when using this app too.

    Its is hilarious to listen to chicago though!!! the calls are hilarious and scary weird mix I know kinda like hot+sour or sweet+sour

    Anyways since when did it cost money? I never had to pay for it!
