Police Scanner 2 Allows Backwards Compatibility with Older Devices
July 8, 2011 in Utilities
[prMac.com] Orem, Utah - Juicy Development has announced an update to the popular iPhone and iPod touch application, Police Scanner 2. This update optimizes the speed of the app, allowing better backwards compatibility with older devices.
Police Scanner 2 is an application that lets users listen to police, fire, and EMS activities around the world. "Since many of our users are police and firefighters, we understand just how crucial the connection is to our app," said Tod Hadley, CEO of Juicy Development. "With this update, users can use older devices while running our app on Apple's latest OS."
With thousands of national and international EMS streams, Police Scanner offers the largest selection of police, fire, and emergency services streams available for the iPhone or Android platform in one application.
"Because our customers depend upon our application for up-to-date emergency information, it's crucial that we provide as much coverage as we possibly can," said Hadley. With over 25,000 daily users and streams in eleven countries, Police Scanner is the most far-reaching emergency stream application in the iTunes store.
As additional stations, counties, and cities are added, the database is automatically updated and the stream instantly becomes available to all Police Scanner users. Police Scanner uses the location-aware technology built into the phones to help users locate streams near them, or allows them to search through a list of all available streams from around the world.
Anyone who discovers a compatible stream can simply email the company or send a message through the company web page. New streams will usually be added within a few days
Police scanner 2 is a must have for on-call volunteer fire fighters, news crews, emergency responders and hobbyists. Fans of Police Scanner are now able to purchase Police Scanner gear in the Juicy online store.
Not all areas broadcast an iPhone compatible stream. This is still a new technology for many police, fire, and dispatch centers. A stream from your local city may not yet be available.
