Android :: FM Tuner / Radio Applications - Over Air Stations
Oct 8, 2010
The FM Radio app on my Evo died for some reason and now turns on to station 00.0 and I can't do anything. Does anyone know how I can fix this app or know of another app that will allow me to tune in over the radio stations? All of the "radio" apps I keep seeing and hearing about are for webcasts of the radio programming, and I want to actually use the FM tuner.
Since the update I'm now able to stream radio stations that weren't able to stream before. I'm assuming its because of Flash. However, in order to keep streaming the browser screen has to remain open ie I can't open another browser tab or switch to another application. Any ideas how to make this run in the background so I can use other apps or open other tabs while streaming?
Also, on another web page there is an option to stream a show or click to download the show as an mp3. When I click the link to download it opens the streaming player and gives me an error that it can't stream that type of file. I didn't have this issue on my blackberry. Clicking the link started the mp3 download. Suggestions?
Has anyone been able to stream XM Radio directly from their PC to their phone using XM Tuner or SiriusXMStreamer? I have gotten it to work with Orb, but would prefer to take Orb out of the equation and stream directly from the XM program or use TVersity. Orb streams in a format that uses the camera player, which I do not like. I would prefer an mp3 stream from TVersity, but have not seen where anyone has gotten it to work.
What apps are you all using to watch TV shows online. I got TV.com from the market but it's only certain broadcasting stations such as CBS. Are there any other out there for the HTC Droid Eris for NBC and ABC stations?
Bought a used android phone (MyTouch 3g) and was surprised it doesn't have a FM tuner. Do the new android phones have FM tuners? It is required to listen to the TV's at the gym and my old Nokia dumb phone had one so I just assumed they all did.
I have the droid X and I notice that there is an FM receiver built in, which is great. Is there a way to turn the Droid X into an FM Transmitter? That would be great if I could listen to pandora radio in my car which does not have an aux jack. Any apps for that?
I have published gstrings - a chromatic tuner app (for tuning your guitar/violin/..) on the market yesterday. www.cohortor.org/gstrings) People who ran it seemed to like it a lot (5*), but 2 out of the 20 reviewers gave it a single *, stating simply 'it does NOT work on android 1.5'. The truth is, it NEEDS 1.5 (cupcake functionality) to run. The problem is I have no way of getting back with those people to ask them 'HOW' did it not work. Naturally, it seems to work just fine on my device. I would like to ask for a bit of help from the community - you - to help me figure out the deal with the two nay-sayers. So if you own a guitar, violin, or any other stringed instrument that you tune occasionally and would like to have a tuner on your android phone, please try gStrings and let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you experienced problems (what kind?) running it.
I got to know that Brainwave Tuner upgrade from the android market yesterday. claims the best health/fitness app, It can help us relax, Meditate, Learn faster, Focus attention, and more. Now in order to make it for better use. Brainwave Tuner add more features in the new version:
1. New function added: play time is extended from maximum 60 mins to infinite 2. Chinese version is added: automatically readjust the language according to the device language 3. More Apps are classified into 3 main categories: Utility, Health and Lifestyle 4. Other minor improvements
I released my first Android application yesterday: G-Tuner. It's a chromatic tuner that listens through the microphone and works out what note you're playing. There are some screenshots here: G-Tuner for Android When I started working on it there were no other chromatic tuners available (in the UK anyway). A few other people have beaten me to it, but I hope there's room for a few of them. Within an hour of publishing my application I had my first rating: 1 star. Things have picked up a little since then, but I'm wondering what caused the initial bad reviews. Maybe they had a different model phone, and the application just doesn't work. I've only been able to test it on my own G1. Although a friend of a friend has tried it out on a Hero, and it seems to work. If this type of application is of interest to you, and you have some feedback I'd be most grateful. Does it work for you? Does it look bad? Is it obvious how it works? Any feedback or suggestions would be most welcome.
I am looking for some help. I'm new to android, and java development. I've got a pretty good handle on the basics, but I'm having an issue figuring out some more advanced operations. I'm working a guitar tuner, which is a stepping stone to a chromatic piano tuner. There is no public API for frequency analysis, so I'm thinking I need to write into code a Fast Fourier Transform, and I'll assume I need to import a different package for this. Once I display the frequency of any given note, I need it to reference it's offset to a pre-measured Mhz. There is alot to write, I'm aware, but my first step is to try to figure out HOW to get the frequency, and display it in the UI.
I'm new to android programming and needs to finish a project on frequency detection for android chromatic guitar tuner. I have already prepared the UI for the app, and I was able to finish the manual tuner. I'm now working on the automatic tuner portion of the application.
I currently have code that creates rows in a table that hold a string in column 1 with a RadioButton in column 2. There can be a variable number of these rows. That all works just great, but I want to add them to a RadioGroup so only one button can be toggled at a time. When I tried to add the dynamic RadioButton to the RadioGroup AFTER I added it to the table row, I got an error saying that the child (the RadioButton) already had a parent. I agree, it does have one, the TableRow.
can you have radio buttons tied to a radio group inside of a row or, should I just code my own toggle mechanism and avoid RadioGroup all together? I mean, I could code the onClick to unclick all other radio buttons, but I would rather not do this if I can use the build in RadioGroup.
But unfortunately the radio buttons inside the table seem to ignore the fact that they're inside of the RadioGroup tags and because of this you can select more than one radio button at the time. I noticed that by removing the table and just having the radio buttons it works just fine. How can I overcome this? Would it be as simple as declaring the radio group inside of the table instead of outside?
I turned on my Droid this morning to listen to MSNBC and I heard the last 5 minutes of Keith Obermann (5:55 am est) and then all of my news and talk channels disappeared! Channels like CNN, C-SPAN, MSNBC and NPR are all gone from my favorites and the channel line-up. There is nothing in the "News and Public Radio" category. Has anyone else noticed this? I'm thinking this must be a temporary glitch but I would hate to lose all of these channels. If you have the Sirius/ XM radio app, would you please check this on your Droid?
I downloaded CPU Tuner yesterday for my EVO, anytime I overclocked it, my phone would keep rebooting to the point I had to do a battery pull and restore another ROM image! So I decided to uninstall it. Went to applications <manage applications<cpu tuner<uninstall. Said it was uninstalled successfully, rebooted my phone and it was still there! Now when I go to manage my applications to uninstall, it's no longer on the list! How do I get it off my phone?
I currently have code that creates rows in a table that hold a string in column 1 with a RadioButton in column 2. There can be a variable number of these rows so I cannot just create it in the layout xml as radio1, radio2, etc. My code displays the table with the string and RadioButton pairs just great, but I want to add them to a RadioGroup so only one button can be toggled at a time.
When I tried to add the dynamic RadioButton to the RadioGroup AFTER I added it to the table row, I got an error saying that the child (the RadioButton) already had a parent. I agree, it does have one, the TableRow. My question is, can you have radio buttons tied to a radio group inside of a row or, should I just code my own toggle mechanism and avoid RadioGroup all together? I mean, I could code the onClick to unclick all other radio buttons, but I would rather not do this if I can use the build in RadioGroup.
I just got my Droid but I frequently use Pandora and Last.FM on my computer at work. Last.FM - Seems like the service has a better list of artists than Pandora so i switched to it on my PC recently. On Android the service is the same but as an app it tends to be open in the background all the time and suffers from not being able to pause (like the PC version). The scrobbling could be nice for some users and it links to the android player. Sound Quality seems excellent, best of the three so far. Pandora - Haven't gotten to use it too much because it takes so long to load my station. Sound Quality seemed fine with my limited use.
Slacker Radio - Has the most music options of the three and seems likes the best application. It has plenty of options like keeping the screen from freezing while plugged in and on wifi without having to change your phone settings. Had to stop listening from poor sound quality though! Sound Quality started ok but a bassy boom and click started appearing after a few songs, forced to switch to Last.FM.
A lot of the materials I've found mention that the Galaxy S line includes an FM tuner, but I've also seen that the Captivate doesn't seem to have it. Can someone who's used the phone clarify whether the Fascinate will come with one?
Android supports recording from the mic to amr format in the 3gp container. On the upcoming HTC Desire or even current HTC Desire, suppose I'm listening to the lovely built in FM radio and I want to make a recording of a breakfast show; would that be possible? Is there a possiblity for an app to be created that could record the built in radio in this manner? What about recording in a better quality like mp3? Does Android need to provide API access to the output speakers or... I am not reffering to internet/streaming radio, this is about the built in FM radio found in the latest HTC smartphones.
Just got the phone today and i cant get enough of it. I am trying to check all the new stuff and am kinda stuck on the tuner. So my understanding is that you have to insert a headphone jack to listen to it and it won't work with the bluetooth headphones. If that's the case then it sucks as I really wanted to use my BT headphones.
Depends on the size and gauge of the wire of your headphones. Also depends on the position of the wires. FM radio is a little picky, but works fine- depending on the points mentioned. Old & wrong: The FM radio on the Inc must be the weakest radio in a phone, evah! Just tried it today and picks up half the channels my Ngage and N900 pick up well. A lot of channels barely come in, or are static filled. I thought Steely Dan said "FM has no static at all"? Makes the CDMA radio seem not that bad, in comparison I know- at LEAST it has a radio. Must be set to suppa powwa savva mode
I used System tuner to tweak a little on my Acer liquid gallant solo E350. I reduced the CPU frequency when the screen is off and changed the governor to ondemand with a minimal frequency of 500 [MHz]. nothing too special here.
A few days ago i did a one click backup with system tuner. Today i restored it because I saw my CPU frequency constancly being 1000[MHz]. After the backup on program after the other start to fail. Unfortunately i turned my phone off and now it won't boot anymore. I got suck at the green glowing acer screen. My idea is now to make an update file which replaces the system files.
I am wanting to allow the user of my android application the ability to set some parameters. The radio button is ideal for this situation. However, I don't like the radio buttons are rendered. Is it possible to change the radio button icon? For example, is it possible to create a custom layout for each row and in that layout reference my own icon and change the font et al.
Q: How does Web Applications differ from SmartPhone Applications (Iphone, Windows Mobile, Android/Nexus Application) and in what specific aspects do they differ and in what degree ?
Also for example,
Q: Why we need mobile version of Web Application like gmail.com or bankofamerica.com specifically for smartphone devices where we can access same web applications on smartphone using internet connections ? In what aspect do they differ and why do we have those differences ?
