    Apparently I was wrong, the Bionic did have a built in FM Tuner chip. However, according to this thread on the Moto Forum the functionality was removed with the Jelly Bean update. If the phone you have is on the Jelly Bean OS you probably will not have any luck with any app. If, by chance, it is still on ICS, the FM Tuner might still work.

    Thanks for you replies. I have the Jelly Bean O/S and now i know I don't have a FM tuner. You gave me info I probably would have never found.

    You are welcome. It took me a while to remember that thread...I had a Bionic during the ICS to JB upgrade and forgot all about the FM Tuner capability. Shame they took it away. If data usage is not an issue, there are some great Streaming Radio apps available.

    I really miss the radio. Out in the sticks data is can be hard to get. I also had to get a good music player when Moto player went all cloud. Still have my Bionic but will upgrade in the spring. I don't want anything bigger so there is nothing equal to a Bionic at this time. Samsung S4 mini is the closest.
