    Default FM Radio app?

    Is there an FM radio app for the Charge? I know of TuneIn Radio and a few others but I'm looking for an app that compares to the one on the Thunderbolt,

    If I'm not mistaken, the thunderbolt actually has an FM Tuner built in, unlike the Droid Charge. So for the DC you need to use data in order to stream the station over the internet whereas the thunderbolt just uses the FM broadcast. So no, there is not an app like that of the thunderbolt that will work on the DC

    The reason I'm looking for one is, there is a live broadcast I like to listen too. Although you can stream the station the broadcast is blacked out.

    No. based on what these posters are saying, certain Clear Channel stations are not on TuneIn Radio.

    Default Re: FM Radio app?

    I know there's lots of other options but each requires a connection to mobile data and consumes a lot more battery. I used FM radio frequently on my DroidX as there are many morning shows to listen to on my train ride in to work. I didn't consider that when I moved to the Charge and as minor as it is, it's something that is frustrating that Samsung didn't include what's been stock on my Droid phones. I can get most of my morning shows on TuneIn Radio but it sucks a lot more juice from my battery and connection to mobile data is not always reliable. Bummed.....
