this is awesome, but i was wondering if an HDRadio app were possible, as it uses the same frequencies.

this works. i dont really listen to radio, but i was disappointed to give up the radio on my Dinc nonetheless, i wonder why they didnt market this as having a radio...?

Edit: Wonder if this could be used as an FM broadcaster to listen to music on your car stereo?

Anyone know what device that Radio App was ripped from? I don't recognize it.

It works pretty well on an Incredible running MUIU- I'm very happy to have it. But it's a bit raw, compared to the HTC Sense FM radio.

After scanning and choosing a particlar station, I couldn't find a way to assign the call letters to that frequency. While showing the list, Menu will give an option for New, but if you a frequency and then the name, it complains that "frequency already exist (sic)", since it was found to belocally valid by a Scan.

I found the app for rooted Droid 2's and it works fine on my Droid 3. Go to this page:

Download the zip file and install FMRadio.apk which is in the app folder of the zip archive. You don't need anything else in there. Works fine with no issues, reception seems okay. It allows for 20 presets which you can name and the hardware has some sort of soft mute feature so that instead of hearing static it just gets quieter. It requires headphones to act as the antenna but allows you to switch to the phone's speaker. You could just use a 3.5mm patch cable as an antenna.

Not sure if this is the same app that was posted here or if its older since it was for the Droid 2 but it works fine.
