For those of you iPhone app-addicts, you might be happy to learn that you can install this cool Scanner 911 app, which turns your iPhone into a police scanner. Of course, you can always buy a real one yourself but what’s the point of carrying around a big chunk of metal when you can do it on your iPhone?
Scanner 911 features an aggregated list of police radio stations, organized by state and city. For when the crime gets really juicy, there’s an option to record the audio, which you can then play back within the app. Also, a “Near Me” button displays local stations so you can stay plugged in to what’s going on in your hood. Scanner 911’s slick, clean interface makes the police-scanning experience quite fun.
