Spirit FM Radio Unlocked v2013_06_29
Requirements: 2.1 and up
Overview: Spirit FM Radio Unlocked is a real, tuned, “over the air” FM radio app. It’s NOT a streaming app requiring expensive, battery consuming data plans.
Spirit FM Radio Light is lower priced and does not support RDS song etc. info and other advanced features: http://play.google.com/store/apps/detai … cros.fm_li
NOT FM CAPABLE: US & LTE variants of Galaxy S/S2/S3/Note/Note2 and many other devices are not capable of FM. US carriers are not allowing FM unless they can “monetize” it: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpos … count=5154
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org at any time to upgrade for the price difference, cancel, or for ANY problems or questions.
Satisfaction absolutely guaranteed or full refund. Don’t worry about the 15 minute return race.
Most Spirit customers are enthusiasts who enjoy rooting & custom ROMs, and Spirit’s priorities are geared to that.
But I also welcome average users looking for added features or with phones with no stock FM radio app.

I understand the prices may seem high, but this is a niche app with a high tech support burden. The gracious support of customers keep Spirit alive and improving.
How many other “Real FM Radio” apps are on Google Play ? Two: 1 for Galaxy S only and one repackaged Motorola app.
Why ? It’s extremely difficult. Google doesn’t support FM radio and carriers suppress it. Intensive reverse engineering is required.
Almost 2 years after Spirit was first created, nobody else has been “crazy” enough to attempt to compete in this niche.
Light & Unlocked include:
- Tech support for all devices you own.
- Stereo, Mono & alternative settings.
- 6 nameable presets.
- Status Bar & Notification window.
- Sleep function, Email Logs & UI settings.
- RDS song etc. info: RT, PS, PTY, PI & AF (RadioText, Program Service, Type, ID & Alternate Frequency).
- Unlimited Preset lists & presets.
- All UI settings, including antenna, station ID & screen orientation.
- Media button support for mute, volume & frequency.
- And many more Unlocked exclusive features to come, including recording & digital audio features on GS3, Note and OneX !
This is not a throwaway game app you play for a few days. How many hours will you spend listening to FM radio in the next several years ?
How much can you save on data plans by listening to free, over the air radio versus streaming ?

Spirit is not a one time purchase. It’s ongoing technical assistance, fixes, new device support & features.
I’m one developer and Spirit FM Radio is my only app and income. I’m trying to do a job Google said they couldn’t for lack of developer resources.
I personally answer every email or post on my XDA thread, usually within 12-24 hours, 7 days a week.
Your support will help keep Spirit FM Radio alive and improving.
