Does this only apply to the online/Windows version, or will there be an upgrade for the Apple app as well ? Would love to use this on my iPhone.

I presume it will support tags down the line? The ones I really like to cover a large area and the tags are the only way to keep track on who's talking.

From another thread I read, Mr. Blanton indicated tags can't be encoded in HTML5 which is how the site works. I have my own websites, and believe it or not, know very little code, but I have to wonder if tags can be used with JS or Jquery? Again, I know very little code so not sure.

As much as I dislike the Broadcastify feed network and the controversy therein, I like this console for the ability to hear scanners in places where I have family and friends hundreds of miles away (CA, FL, NV, AZ and WY) Very handy, indeed. I guess that makes me a hypocrite so I will not bash here anymore. I am sold. For as long as it lasts, I suppose. No feeds for Jackson Hole, WY, so maybe I will hop on that bandwagon and be a feed provider for Teton County. Ya never know. And, never say never. haha

I have sipped the Kool-Aid and I have been converted!

I like your post JD. As always, you're very diplomatic.

I liken the Broadcastify debate to the politics of today - Pro-Trump and Anti-Trump - and in my family that is a touchy subject. I have always been vehemently against the feed apps on cell phones for obvious reasons, but have we heard a lot of feedback from LEO that these apps are being used in that regard? Frankly, I have not. I have only read that they could be, and that is not evidence of any criminal element utilizing these scanner apps for nefarious reasons. I do not want to derail this thread into an encryption debate, I just wanted to announce my change of mind on the matter, and thank Mr. Blanton for yet another contribution for our wonderful hobby. Congrats! I think the feed dashboard rocks! ;)

You are right this is not the place for the debate, you saw recently a conversation in the Pennsylvania forum where top LEOs do have an opinion and changed long-standing SOP much to our chagrin. We can talk about it there.

I have always thought of you as diplomatic and middle of the road in a conversation.;)

Now we can let this thread continue on with its intended purpose. I did see the example dashboard and it looks good.

Just a thought. What about a dark mode or night mode so we could toggle between the white page background or a black background?
I actually do that with my phone and my computer under accessibility. I have the black background with white printing on my phone and home computer for the RR forums. I think the site actually offers that option also.
