    Does anyone know of an app that will allow me to specify my own http stream to listen to? I like to listen to police scanners, such as this:
    http://relay.radioreference.com:80/mi_oakland2

    Anybody know of something that will let me listen to this on my Palm Pre Plus?
    Thanks...arniep

    THanks. Yes, I had that one installed but it did not seem to work too well. Can someone try the folllowing stream on that app and see if it works for you:

    United States
    Michigan
    Oakland County
    Police and Fire Departments in Oakland County

    The same feed can be found at:
    Police and Fire Departments in Oakland County Live Scanner Audio Feed
    That feed finds lots of activity
    but I hear nothing on my Pre.
    Thanks....arniep

    That is really strange. If I click on the first link under Oakland County, I get lots of activity. But I get nothing with the third link which is the one I gave you above.
    I guess maybe I should uninstall and re-install it. I wish they allowed you to manually enter a url.
    Thanks!

    I have this same problem. The feeds eventually start working after about 5-10 minutes, but I'm not sure why it's taking SOOooo long to get the feed working!

    this app works great. I have compared the live feeds through the web against an actual scanner, there is no more than a 3 - 5 second delay only.. Great app!
