[prMac.com] Orem, Utah - Juicy Development, creator of popular iPhone app Police Scanner, has partnered with RadioReference, the world's largest radio communication data provider, to provide feeds for its emergency frequency scanner application. "We're ecstatic to partner with RadioReference," said David Kyle, project manager for Police Scanner. "They provide us with a large number of streams that are exceptional in clarity and relevance."
Clarity and relevance are crucial to Police Scanner's users, as the acclaimed iPhone application allows listeners to listen to police, fire, and EMS activities around the world. Unlike other emergency scanner applications, Police Scanner's adaptive technology allows updates to data streams to post "live" within a few hours of changes made. Because emergency data streams can change so quickly, Police Scanner is able to provide the updated information to its customers without waiting for slow version changes released in the iTunes store.
"Juicy Development was the first organization to develop an application for listening to public safety audio streams on mobile devices," said Lindsay Blanton, president of RadioReference. "Their innovative and easy-to-use interface means that thousands of listeners are able to hear what is happening within their communities quickly and efficiently. RadioReference is proud to be a part of that process."
With over 1850 national and international streams, Police Scanner offers the largest selection of police, fire, and emergency services streams available. Police Scanner is the only iPhone emergency scanner application to provide streams from eight countries. New streams are added daily.
Several independent blogs and experts, including AppCraver, have compared Police Scanner with other emergency scanner applications, and have rated Police Scanner superior. "I'd have to give the edge to Police Scanner. The search ability is superior, the graphics are far superior. I found the broadcast from the same Canadian agency to be clearer and I liked the broader selection of locations more suited to my needs," said Keith Lewis of AppCraver.com
Police Scanner runs on wireless LANs, the 3G network, or on the Edge network, and is compatible both 2.x and 3.0 devices. Now with 50,000 plus regular users, Police Scanner is the most far-reaching emergency stream application in the iTunes national and international stores.
