On Monday, 5-0 Radio Police Scanner, which costs $5, was the number one paid app in the App Store. A pared-down version with ads was the number two paid app, surpassing TikTok and second only to the suddenly popular Zynn appVice first reported on the app’s rise. 

Protesters clashed with police in Minneapolis, Louisville, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and other U.S. cities over the weekend. They are demanding an end to police brutality after George Floyd was killed by a police officer.
