Description

Spirit FM Light is a real, tuned, "over the air" FM radio app. It is NOT a streaming app that requires expensive data service.

Spirit FM Unlocked provides many more features than this "Light" app, such as RDS (song info etc.): http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mikersmicros.fm_unlock

Satisfaction absolutely guaranteed or full refund. Don't worry about the 15 minute return race. :)

Spirit was initially targetted at custom ROMs such as CyanogenMod, on which FM app availability is limited.

If you don't know what a "ROM" is, then your phone is likely "Stock" and un-rooted.

Support for stock, un-rooted devices is now present, but limited, and various bugs are being worked on.

If your stock phone has a working, stock FM app you are happy with, then Spirit may be of little use to you at present.

If your stock phone does not have a working, stock FM app, then FM is likely impossible, except Bionic, Droid 2 & 3, Defy.

Some phones will never work and nobody can make them work because the hardware is disabled. This includes Atrix, Nexus S, US Galaxy S2's, Galaxy Tab, Droid (1)/Milestone, P999 G2x, Galaxy Spica.

I understand the prices may seem high, but this is a niche app. Price experiments say higher prices will keep this app alive & improving.

How many other "Real FM" apps are on the Market ? Two: 1 for Galaxy S only and one repackaged Motorola app.

Why ? It's extremely difficult. Google does not support FM apps. They and the carriers seem to dislike free "Over The Air" FM.

Light & Unlocked include:

- Lifetime technical support for as many devices as you own & questions you have.

- Stereo, Mono & alternative settings.

- Mute & Speaker support.

- 6 nameable presets.

- Status Bar & Notification window.

- Sleep function, Test functions, Email Logs, UI settings & RSSI graphic.

- And many more Light & Unlocked exclusive features to come !

Unlocked adds:

- Enhanced technical support and attention to feature requests.

- RDS song info etc: RT, PS, PTY, PI & AF (RadioText, Program Service, Type, ID & Alternate Frequency).

- Unlimited Preset lists & nameable presets.

- Landscape mode, forced or automatic.

- Media button & CM lockscreen support for mute, volume & frequency.

- All UI settings, including antenna & station ID.

- And many more Unlocked exclusive features to come !

This is not a throwaway game app you play for a few days. How many hours will you spend listening to FM in the next 20+ years ?

How much can you save on data plans by listening to free, over the air radio versus streaming ?

Spirit is not a one time purchase. It's ongoing technical assistance, fixes, new device support & features.

I'm one developer and Spirit is my only app and income. I'm trying to do a job Google said they couldn't for lack of developer resources. :)

Your support will help keep Spirit FM alive and improving.

Thanks !
