    I want to get a better FM Radio app for the Droid X than what it comes with. The RDS is almost non exisient. Displaying at best the call letters. No info like Artist and Song. Like most RDS radios display even if just the main RDS feed.

    That is a great idea for a App, and I would be interested in developing something like that if you needed help, but do many people use the FM app in the first place? Personally I find myself using Internet Radio or SiriusXM most of the time.

    If there is demand for it I would invest the time. It doesn't seem like a overly complicated app to develop, but the feature set we could get out of it would be tremendous.

    Cheers.

    I use an app called TuneIn Radio. All of my local stations come in quite well.

    About 30% of the radio stations do not broadcast online that I listen to. That is why the FM Radio is needed.

    Have you tried my suggestion or even looked at it in the market?

    It plays local and internet stations. Most of the stations I use this app for are only local. Out of the stations I listen to maybe only 5% have online broadcasting.
