I picked of a Wifi version a while back, I purposely didn't get the bluetooth version because I know iOS is limited (unless jailbroken, or an approved device). I am jailbroken, but I wanted one that works regardless.

Yeah it's $70 for this version, but I like the integration with the app from what I can see.

This app offers less than what your typical scanner can get. Plus you're now tied to a single app meaning should they choose to stop updating it, you've got a paper weight. As I said, I'm happy with my sub-$20 alternative that also allows tuning of the vehicle, etc.

But you're right people shouldn't cast stones.
Didn't know that NZ has the market cornered on scientists? Or are you just naming 3 random kiwi scientists? Surely you're not bragging....

Do Oppenheimer, Hubble, and Noyce ring any bells?

I hope you took time out to give thanks to those Americans who sacrificed for your freedom - so now you are a free country, not a Japanese territory.

That's a scary, plausible possibility of any item. I guess if Apple stops making iOS the money I spent in apps is wasted as well.

If this company does well, they might go on to do more over time as well. Add new features and maybe even new products.

Like I said, I already have a wifi version that suits my needs, but I do like some of the features and ease of this one.

Read my comment. I was quoting someone praising a WiFi device.
