Unlike other apps, we focus on quizzing a child during the learning process, and that way make it competitive for a kid so that she puts in more effort to improve further.
Next version would have support for multiple languages, and subject categories that could be selected by a kid or a helper.
- Age Group Selection
- Misc Learning Exercises and Quizzes
- A voice activated app. Helps in learning process.
- Time and Score keeping, for challenging a kid to improve further
- And a lot more...

PLEASE NOTE: I am still fixing bugs and adding some phone supports on this "Spirit1 Unlocked". But new features and the bulk of my time are now focused on Spirit2, still in beta: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2537861

If you're an average phone user, & don't know what Android "rooting" is, Spirit will likely not offer you much more than your stock FM app. If your phone does not have a stock FM app, it is unlikely that Spirit will work on it.
Spirit is mostly for Android enthusiasts who "root" & "ROM" their phones. But it also works on many stock, "store bought" phones.
Spirit Unlocked includes (in addition to Spirit Free features):
- Digital audio features on a few devices: supported ONLY on: ROOTED (non-stock !) International Galaxy S/S2/S3/Note/Note2/Player, ROOTED (non-stock !) HTC One/OneXL/OneS/Evo 4G LTE/Xperia T and most stock Sony 2012-2013 devices.
Digital audio features are no longer described here because WAY too many people think they will work on stock, un-rooted phones.
- RDS data display in App, Lock-screen & Notification window. RT, PS, PTY, PI & AF RadioText RT, Program Service PS, Program Type PTY, Program ID PI & Alternate Frequency AF.
- Lock-screen & Wired Headset Media Button support for mute, preset, seek, volume & record.
- Many settings: Audio, UI, AF, Digital & Debug categories.
- Unlimited Presets & Preset Lists.
FAQ / Frequently Asked Questions: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=31983089
I understand the price may seem high, but this is a niche app with 9,000 hours of work required over 2.7 years. How many other "Real FM Radio" apps are on Google Play ? Almost none.
Why ? Because Android FM is extremely difficult. Google doesn't support FM radio and carriers suppress it. Intensive reverse engineering is required. In the over 2 years since Spirit was first created, nobody else has been "crazy" enough to attempt to compete in this niche. :)
Spirit is not a throwaway game app you play for a few days. How many hours will you spend listening to FM radio in the next several years ?
How much can you save on data plans by listening to free, over the air radio versus streaming ?
If you care about app quality, note CNet article "We're not paying enough for apps": http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=23568502&postcount=2523
I'm one developer and Spirit is my only app and income. I'm trying to do a job Google said they couldn't for lack of developer resources. :)
Your support for Spirit is appreciated.

Cancel any time on request for an upgrade to Unlocked for the price difference, or for any reason. To cancel, email firstname.lastname@example.org with at least your name, email of purchase, and/or order ID or email receipt.
I'm very sorry, but I have stopped sales of "Spirit FM Light". Updates will continue.
To stop new sales while still serving existing customers, raising price to maximum is the only option Google provides. (I tried $20, and one person a day was accidentally buying, so I created some language translations and raised it to the max of $200. Better to be thought a crazy dev than a greedy one, LOL.)
I'm doing this because the technical support burden for Light and Unlocked users is the same. Further, I'm very busy trying to improve Spirit, and I'd prefer to lose a few sales if I gain more time for development.
Light was created in the spring of 2012 as a low cost upgrade from the free version that used to be on Play. It served it's purpose and helped launch me from almost no income to my current "decent" and sustainable level.
I thank you all for helping to keep Spirit going.
Updates will continue, but Spirit FM Light will receive mostly just bug fixes.
New features, such as lock-screen support, digital audio, bluetooth and recording support, are exclusive to Spirit FM Unlocked.
This is not a change. Other than basic improvements, like UI, device and ROM support, new features have been pretty much exclusive to Unlocked since the Light version was created, and I've never communicated otherwise.
I'm happy that Unlocked now has pretty much all of the features envisioned 2-3 years ago. The new Spirit2 is the way forward, for supported devices... :)
Please email email@example.com to upgrade for price difference, cancel, or for ANY problems or questions.
Thanks ! :)
Spirit2 is in "Beta" or "Early Preview" until at least Mid March, 2014 so please expect annoying bugs until then.
If you don't know what "root" or "AOSP" mean, this app is not for you.
But if you're rooted, and especially if you're running an AOSP ROM, and can run Spirit Unlocked in digital audio mode, then you're in luck ! :)
Because Spirit2 is the best darn FM radio application ever. Let me know if you think there's a better one, at least forgiving me for some UI and bug/technical issues for now...
License validation DRM is now disabled, at least for now. App stats collection is also disabled, at least for now.
At this time a2d.fm/Spirit2 only works on these rooted / AOSP devices:
GT-N7100 (audio low but finally close to balanced)
Evo 4G LTE
The price is a bit higher than Spirit Unlocked. It will be dropped on the 1st day of each month.
These are the first releases and are sure to be buggy. Please understand.
