\342\200\242 ...a scanner within a certain distance of your location has more than a certain number of listeners.

In addition to the above features, you also get the following features with this version of the app:

\342\200\242 No ads.
\342\200\242 Access to all 6 theme colors.
\342\200\242 Push notifications sent within 5 minutes (vs within 15 minutes in the free version).

\342\200\242 The play button at the top of the directory screens and on the widgets can be used to start listening without having to go to the player screen.

The audio you're able to hear is provided by volunteers (and, in many cases, police and fire departments themselves) for Broadcastify.com and a few other sites using real police scanners and is the same audio you would hear using your own police scanner.

Explanation of why a couple of permissions are needed:

\342\200\242 The "Location" permission is required so that the app can determine what scanners are located in your area when you select "Nearby Scanners". When you select "Nearby Scanners" the app first attempts to determine your location via the network, if that fails the app then tries to determine your location via GPS.

\342\200\242 The "Photos/Media/Files" / "modify or delete the contents of your USB storage" permission is required in order to allow you to record the audio you're hearing and be able to save it to a location that you can access from your computer.
