About Scanner Radio Android App
  • Hear live audio from more than 2300 police and fire scanners, weather radios, and amateur radio repeaters from all over the world on your android device with Scanner Radio app. The audio is given by professionals via real scanner radios. If your area is not available then look into the menu in the app for information on how to get it added.


    * No advertisements included in the Pro version.

    * The play button is functional at the top of the directory screens and on the widgets.

    * Get Premium Subscription which permits you to hear archived audio (from the past 2-3 weeks)

    * Use with *this* version of the app to listen to two scanners at once.

    Arrange alerts to have the app inform you when lots of people are listening to a scanner (Signifying that something big may be happening).

    To get access to the Scanner Radio chat rooms simply install the Scanner Radio Chat Plug-In free of cost.


    The "Read Phone State" permission is needed by the app so that it can detect when you're placing a phone call (or when one is being received) so that it can automatically stop the streaming of the scanner audio so that it doesn't interfere with the call.

    If the audio repeats, you hear's audio lead-in repeatedly, or the app stays connected for only a short time, try selecting "Settings" from the menu, then "Player settings", and then try changing the "Streaming method" setting.

    Note that the widgets are not available if the app has been installed on an SD card. If you can't find the widgets, move the app off of your SD card.


Supported Android versions: Android 1.6 and higher
