How to listen FM radio as a standalone app

If you, like me, hate the stock Motorola music player but don't want to lose its integrated FM radio function, you'll like this.

Just download the attached APK and install it the usual way. It's been working great so far for me, even RDS, loudspeaker and all! And I like the interface more than the Motorola music player.

The APK is from a Droid 2, the radio hardware seems to be the same.

Please note that I tried this only in a European Defy, with the Central European SBF (JRDNEM_U3_2.34.1).

UPDATE 5th june 2011
Thanks to maniac103 there is now a fixed version of the app that fixes the crashes and problems saving stations. I tried on my 2.1 Defy and it's now rock solid! It also fixed the ugly icon in the notification bar.

Find the new version attached to this post, it's called FMRadio_fixed.apk.

I have already installed. its much better than the default application. you can save radios, listen from the speaker, and my default application didn't let me to put off the radio when I let it many time on.

thanks a lot!!

I've problems after altering the radio station list. If I save a station manually inside the list the radio app exits but the radio is still playing and the icon inside the status bar is still available. Also killing and restarting the radio app does't work.

Same happens to me, but reopening and then closing the app with Quick Exit worked fine.
