Default Live FM radio on atrix 2 (no data needed)

I just tested it and it works like a charm.

Yea, that's the one I got.. I actually use the one on my mp3 player most often though.. npr all day in the background at work.
FYI- there's also one in the stock "My Music 2.3.6" app. But I froze that one because it kept popping on in the background, and it gets rid of the at&t music store app too..

You can find your local station that plays npr here: npr.org/templates/stations/stations

The radio apps should work without wifi or data, you just need to plug in your headphones (they act as an antenna). And any headphones should work, or get a double ended 3.5 mm jack and listen through your car or computer.
Another option is to get a cheap mp3 player with a built in fm radio..

Thanks..Good to know any headphone works..I tried the app and it works, bummer is for some reason it works between 95.7 to 105.0 mhz..NPR in my place comes on 91.7 which isn't getting on this app for some reason..anyway thank you for details.

But how is this different from the built in FM Radio on the Atrix 2? Try the one on ICS, still better. Can be listened through the spk phone as well, with hd phones plugged though.

It's purely a radio app, meaning that it's not having to run the entire music app just so you can listen to the radio. I don't know about ICS (as I have been lenient to upgrade), but on GB I actually noticed a significant battery increase when I used the FM radio app as opposed to the built in app.
