[MSNBC] Police on radio scanner apps: That's not a 10-4

...It's all pretty run-of-the-mill stuff, except for one thing: How did Hale know the heist was falling apart inside the pharmacy as he sat outside in the car?
How did he know to take off?

Matthew Hale, it turned out, had a smartphone รขโ‚ฌโ€ specifically, a Droid from Verizon Wireless. And on that Droid he had an app that he used to monitor Muncie police radio traffic, Detective Jim Johnson said.
Lookout Man?


...there's an App for that.

Hello hardware.

Sheesh, the app is just a software version of the hardware. If a thiefs going to use it, they're going to use it.

I downloaded an app like this a long time back just because I was curious, it only had a few select cities that it worked for and none were near me.

This is funny. Electromagnetic emissions from their network are un-encrypted thus open to all. The app gets the data over the internet thus no direct radio interception, but he skill gets hammered. Sheesh.
BULLDOZER!!!

Yup.. ...
Also its public freedom to listen to them.. Good luck taking it away..
I use mine to listen to storm chasers, and sometimes to see what the sirens are at work ( I work in the hood )....
Mark my words, The app will go nowhere ( there are like 5 diff ones on eash OS , lol )

wow I didn't know about that app! have to look it up now. Ive been wanting to find a way to listen without buying a radio. I have a hard time sleeping if the radio isn't on. I worked EMS for 10 years, did 2 years at a station where we had no toner, so had to literally listen to the radio 24/7. I work 5 days on and 2 days off, so I learned to sleep through the radio and wake up to the tones. I got so used to it that now I have a hard time sleeping without a radio in the background.

scanners shouldn't be illegal, use of them to aid in crime is a different story.
