In 2010, I began working with a developer partner on an Android app called Scanner Radio. The goal was to make a simple and clean phone interface for a traditionally complex and hard to use piece of hardware used to listen to police scanners.

Scanner Radio on Android grew to be incredibly popular ranking in the top 20 most downloaded apps for many years accumulating more than 25 million downloads. To this day, our paid version is ranked the 15th most paid app on Android.

More recently we’ve been working more on Scanner Radio for iOS with around 500k monthly active users and growing rapidly. Our iOS version is currently ranked #9 within the News Category on the App Store.
