Are there any working FM radio apps for the android?

The stock rom for my Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 includes and FM radio app. However the custom rom I installed did not include one, and searching the app market has revealed only a ton of apps that stream radio from the internet (seems every radio station in the country has their own app), and a tuner app that can't even launch without crashing itself.
Disclaimer: I'm a pro with computers, but a relative newbie with smartphones/tablets (and linux in general).

Both MIUI and CM have FM radio apps. Don't know of any from the market.

Spirit's the way to go IMO
PHONES : Moto SLVR L7--> Moto ROKR EM30--> Micromax Q7--> HTC Wildfire S--> Samsung Galaxy SIII--> LG G2 [AOSPA]
TABLETS : Kindle Fire--> Nexus 7--> Nexus 10 --> Surface Pro 2 [Windows 8.1]

Default Working FM for Android

Yes sure there is FM radio app exist that will be available and used on the android phones such as "TuneIn". It is basically a great Application because it allows you to listen to around 25,000 FM stations. Isn't that cool? Moreover you can also able to get more radio apps in Android phones

That actually streams FM radio from the internet. True FM radio is a hardware requirement, but with smartphone data plans manufacturers don't really include them anymore.

Thanks, guys! This is actually quite useful, and not something I'd even thought to look for. A lot of gyms have the TV's on FM, so it would be nice to be able to use my phone to tune in.

Yeah, the internet radio apps won't help you there. You need to have a phone that has FM tuner program. These programs use the headphones as antennas to absorb the radio waves. This isn't something you can download. My experience with these has been poor in the past.
