[prMac.com] Orem, Utah - Juicy Development has released Police Scanner for iPhone, a useful tool for locating and listening in on police dispatch frequencies throughout the country. Over 500 EMS operations stream their dispatch communications on the Internet. Police Scanner for iPhone connects to these streams and allows listeners to stay informed.
Great for "on call" volunteer fire fighters, news crews, and emergency responders. Allows you to listen in (but not broadcast) on police, fire, and EMS activities across the country. Juicy Development Operations Officer Tod Hadley said, "This product is designed to help EMS operations save costs. A volunteer can now pick up the stream and listen in without purchasing expensive radio hardware that is usually locked into a specific frequency."
At this time slightly over 500 city and county broadcasts have been added to the system, but Juicy Development adds additional streams as quickly as they can find them. Anyone who discovers a compatible stream can simply email the company or send a message through our support web page. The stream will usually be added within a few days. As additional stations, counties, and cities are added, the database is automatically updated and the stream instantly becomes available to all Police Scanner users. No complicated or time consuming update needed. In addition, it is expected that all future updates will be free to those who purchase early.
Police Scanner uses the location-aware technology built into the iPhone to help users locate streams near them, or allows them to search through a list of all available streams from across the country. A few international streams have been added and the international directory is expected to grow.
Want to know the location of all the speed traps? Want to find out what is really happening beyond that police line or get the inside scoop on the search for that missing person? Then Police Scanner is for you. Listen in and find out every time your friends get pulled over for speeding.
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. Any user that has a stream they would like us to add should contact technical support and provide the web link to the stream they desire.
Pricing and Availability:
Police Scanner is available now in the Apple iTunes store for the introductory price of only $1.99 (USD) and works on the iPhone or iPod touch. Requires 2.0 software update and a network connection.
