Scanner Radio is an app for Android & iOS that lets you listen to live police and fire activity


  • 4th most popular News app on iOS
  • 4th most popular paid app on Android
  • 1.2 Million monthly active users

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 one of the most popular apps on Android. To this day, our paid version is ranked the 4th most paid app on Android

More recently we’ve been working more on Scanner Radio for iOS and have quickly grown it to 610k monthly active users. Our iOS version is currently ranked #4 within the News Category on the App Store.
