April Fool.

There is a special place for people like you!!!

Unfortunately, like with most Apps, not sure it will turn out to be the best thing since sliced bread. I find most Apps with the exception of Pandora are only used for a few minutes before things are just not what you expect and are not as useful as planned.

Hopefully I will be wrong about the App, but we shall see.

Did you really think Q1 was a realistic date anyway?
I wonder if the "Siren" that we saw in the "Uniden New Scanner Launch" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGPEEGw5NzE) video was an artist rendering, and there really was no app at that time. Either way, any app developer for Android or iOS who is worth the money they're being paid should be able to pull it off.

Heck look at the apps coming out of the woodwork, like the FreeSCAN app that is being sold for $2 for example.

Either way, THAT app is what pushed me to buy the scanner. I find it a little disheartening that enough time has now past to where I (we) can't return the scanner for a refund and the app STILL not available.

I've been more than fair, and don't think I've been treated as such.

All in good fun my friend. ;)


I'm hoping the app is as good as it was hyped, otherwise I'm sure a lot of us will be upset.

I actually have a 1980 with an 81 gas door :)
It has a 1973 455 & a 200-4R trans. I'm getting 26mpg on the highway with it if I can keep my foot out of it.

Well, Paul does have a past history of pulling April Fool's jokes on us.

In all seriousness, what can we do but wait, gang? I'm sure Paul didn't PLAN to not have an app by now. Shh....tuff happens.

@y84media: Nice one - you got me to click! :D

Happy April Fooling, everyone.

Guess what? Life is not fair. How is it Unidens fault that YOU bought the scanner long before the app was out? In the world of product development, **** happens. That is life.

While it would have been nice to see the app developed, and released at the same time, Uniden decided to not to go that route. Just be happy you did not by an APX7000 hoping Motorola would add QC2 when they originally said they would... That is a multi thousand dollar radio...

A choice you have is to put it up on fleece bay, or the classifieds here, and hope you can recover 50c on the dollar(I would not pay more than half price for a used scanner) and put it towards a 396/996xt and call it a day.

Another choice is to keep the scanner and enjoy it, while waiting for the app to arrive.
