Spirit2 is the successor to Spirit1 Unlocked and is the “Best Darn FM app”* in existence !
Spirit2 is a real, tuned, over-the-air FM radio app for Android. It does not require Internet access.
Spirit2 helps best the most popular, latest, greater finish gadgets which have digital audio improve in Spirit1 Unlocked. See checklist under. The Spirit2 UI and underlying structure are a lot superior. Spirit1 Unlocked remains to be extra mature/bug-free and has more features. Your strengthen will assist Spirit2 match and exceed the Spirit1 characteristic set.
*”Best darn FM app”: Yes, it has some bugs, and may just lack some “polish” of inventory FM apps, nevertheless it’s essentially the most useful and has extra settings.
The ONLY FM app supporting ALL this: Equalizer, Effects, Recording, BT A2DP and Visualizer.
Spirit2 additionally helps multiple “remote” displays and controls: Home and lock-screen widget, lock-screen, notification shade, BT AVRCP and future Android remotes. AVRCP places RDS and station information on the show of suitable BT headsets, and controls Pause/Play and preset selection. Was once beautiful cool the primary time I noticed that working.
*”Official Support” manner I personal the telephone and I will correctly strengthen it.
**”Compatible AOSP” ROMs includes as many AOSP ROMs as I will be able to fairly reinforce, which have the FM and audio kernel drivers wanted to allow FM. CM11 is the preferred and easiest supported, with the exception of for the incompatible 2014 kernels for HTC OneXL LTE, OneS, and Evo 4G LTE. LG G2 is only supportable on CM11, AOKP and Mahdi ROMs as of April, 2014.
The one different units with a possibility of working fully are those with Qualcomm WCN3660 or more recent suitable FM/BT/WiFi chips in addition to Qualcomm WDC9310 or more recent appropriate audio chips. This contains most late 2012+ Sony gadgets beginning with Xperia T. These may just or would possibly not work neatly, and will not be formally supported. With adequate demand I will consider buying a “Z” device and formally assisting some Sony’s.
Spirit2 additionally works fairly neatly on many inventory or inventory derived ROMs when rooted. But there are steadily issues, equivalent to FM over BT issues on Samsung inventory ROMs. Most of my clients are on AOSP/CM ROMs.
“Upgrades” from Spirit1:
If you happen to’ve been fortunately the usage of Spirit1 Unlocked for no less than 3-6 months, please believe Spirit2 a second purchase, for a next generation FM app. Assist me give Spirit2 the 3+ year lifespan that Spirit1 has had so far. My income is still at the lowest end of “tolerable”. Support me and I can support you.
Thanks ! 🙂
