Spirit FM Radio is a real tuned FM radio app that supports RDS data (Unlocked version). It is NOT a streaming app.

This app will not work on many phones, but experimental support for stock, unrooted devices is now present. Read on or read my XDA thread for tech explanations of the difficulty of supporting stock or "store bought" phones.

Please purchase the Spirit FM Radio Unlocked app for full functionality and to support further development. This includes RDS data and other features listed in the Unlocked description, and many more to come.

Satisfaction is absolutely guaranteed or I will refund you in full, so don't worry about the 15 minute return race. :)

I understand that the price is on the high side, but my pricing experiments indicate it's this niche app's best chance for survival.

I know the UI is still "sub-par", but I've been concentrating my 80+ hour weeks on the extensive technical details that are pain-stakingly reverse-engineered from these "secret" FM APIs.

How many other "Real FM" apps are on the Market ? Two: 1 for Galaxy S only and one repackaged Motorola app.

Why ? Because it's extremely difficult for 3rd parties. Google does not support OTA FM. They, and many carriers seem to just hate old fashioned free "Over The Air" FM.

Some of you just need to set Audio->Method.
