Spirit FM Radio (Real Radio TI/Broadcom) For Android

If you are looking to try out a real tuned radio app, rather than a streaming app, take a look at XDA forum member mikereidis‘ Spirit FM Radio app.

Like the MIUI and CM FM apps, it is derived from the Code Aurora FM app, although the dev appears to have made some more extensive mods than the aforementioned.

Spirit FM Radio is currently in beta and requires Android version 2.1. or higher. On unsupported phones, it should go into an emulator mode to allow the UI to be explored.

The app has support for starting and stopping audio when a phone call is initiated or answered and also features RDS data support on TO FM chip based phones. The XDA dev has stated that he hopes to add RDS support for Broadcom based devices in the future.

The UI has 3 blocks consisting of:

  • Station Info
  • Presets (supports unlimited presets and multiple preset lists)
  • Mute/Power

Spirit FM does not enforce the use of a headset wire as an antenna although for best audio and RDS, the antenna is recommended.

For much more information including device and firmware compatibility and to download the apk, head on over to the application thread.
