Spirit FM Unlocked vMay5

Android 2.1+

Spirit FM Unlocked is a real, tuned, "over the air" FM radio app with RDSApril 13 Spirit FM

Spirit was initially targetted at custom ROMs such as CyanogenMod, on which FM app availability is limited.
If you don't know what a "ROM" is, then your phone is likely "Stock" and un-rooted.
Support for stock, un-rooted devices is now present , but limited, and various bugs are being worked on.
If your stock phone has a working, stock FM app you `re happy with, then Spirit may be of little use to you at present.
If your stock phone does not have a working, stock FM app, then FM is likely impossible, except Bionic, Droid 2 & 3, Defy.
Some phones will never work and nobody can make them work because the hardware is disabled. This includes Atrix, Nexus S, US Galaxy S2's, Galaxy Tab, Droid (1)/Milestone,
P999 G2x, Galaxy Spica.
I understand the prices may seem high, but this is a niche app. Price experiments say higher prices will keep this app alive & improving.
How many other "Real FM" apps are on the Market ? Two: 1
for Galaxy S only and one repackaged Motorola app .
Why ? It's extremely difficult. Google does not support FM
apps. They and the carriers seem to dislike free "Over The Air" FM.

Light & Unlocked include:
- Lifetime technical support for as many devices as you own & questions you have.
- Stereo, Mono & alternative settings.
- Mute & Speaker support.
- 6 nameable presets.
- Status Bar & Notification window.
- Sleep function , Test functions, Email Logs, UI settings & RSSI graphic.
- And many more Light & Unlocked exclusive features to come !
Unlocked adds:
- Enhanced technical support and attention to feature requests.
- RDS song info etc: RT, PS, PTY, PI & AF (RadioText, Program
Service, Type, ID & Alternate Frequency).
- Unlimited Preset lists & nameable presets.
- Landscape mode, forced or automatic.
- Media button & CM lockscreen support for mute, volume & frequency.
- All UI settings, including antenna & station ID.
- And many more Unlocked exclusive features to come !
This is not a throwaway game app you play for a few days.
How many hours will you spend listening to FM in the next 20+ years ?
How much can you save on data plans by listening to free, over the air radio versus streaming ?
Re: CNet article "We're not paying enough for apps"
Spirit is not a one time purchase. It's ongoing technical assistance , fixes, new device support & features.
I'm one developer and Spirit is my only app and income.
I'm trying to do a job Google said they couldn't for lack of developer resources.
Your support will help keep Spirit FM alive and improving.
