[prMac.com] Tucson, Arizona - EdgeRift, Inc., a leading developer of innovative Mac and iPhone software, has released Emergency Radio, an application that brings police scanner and emergency services frequencies to the iPhone and iPod Touch. With a sleek interface and intuitive design, Emergency Radio delivers over 900 police, fire, and emergency services frequencies via Wi-Fi and cellular network (iPhone only - data plan required). The application has received rave reviews from customers, and is currently one of the top paid applications on the iTunes App Store.
"A traditional police scanner can cost hundreds of dollars," said EdgeRift CEO Parker Minardo. "Emergency Radio brings the same functionality to many iPhone and iPod touch users in an affordable and convenient way."
Emergency Radio takes advantage of unique iPhone features, including Core Location. Users can locate cities/counties by name or search for nearby frequencies based on the user's current location. The application also offers a customizable favorites list, and a list of scanner codes to aid in listening.

"I love this app!" remarks one App Store reviewer (username "Absinth Minded"). "I'm a firefighter-EMT and this app is a lot of fun to see what's going on in other cities."
"Unbelievable!" comments another App Store reviewer (username "iheartdogs55"). "This app is worth the measly 99 cents! You must buy this app!!!!"
"Five stars!!" says a third App Store reviewer (username "FebruaryXVI"). "I used to listen to a scanner years ago, but sadly it broke.
