About this app

MagicSDR makes it possible to interactively explore RF spectrum using panadapter and waterfall visualization, demodulate and play AM, SSB, CW, NFM, WFM signals, collect frequencies. Built on the principle of plug-in architecture, MagicSDR - powerful and flexible next-generation SDR (software-defined radio) application. Typical applications are dx-ing, ham radio, radio astronomy, and spectrum analysis. Explore the spectrum everywhere!

To start playing with MagicSDR, you need to set up a server on a host computer to which SDR peripherals (rtl-sdr dongle, Airspy) will be connected or connect SDR peripherals directly to a smartphone via a USB OTG cable. To try application without SDR peripherals, MagicSDR can emulate a virtual radio device.

MagicSDR also provides access to more than six hundred servers around the world, with which you can listen to radio in the shortwave bands. This does not require special equipment.

Support Hardware:
- KiwiSDR
- RTLSDR dongle
- Any other radio that supports the rtl_tcp server
- Hermes Lite
- Airspy R2/mini/HF+
- SpyServers

Main features:
- Wide band spectrum view
- AM/SSB/CW/NFM/WFM demodulator
- Screen gestures
- Frequency bookmarks
- Band plan
- Shortwave Guide (EiBi database)
- Noise treshold squelch
- Audio over UDP for external data decoders
- Record audio

You wont find a better app for SDR. I'm using this with a genuine RTL-SDR Blog V3. It has most of the features and functionality you would find in good PC software for SDR. Well worth the upgrade price. The developer is friendly and quick to respond with issues if you have any.

It's a really decent SDR software considering the fact that it's in its early development. There are some bugs, of course, but hell, it works. I would love to see the driver built-in, gain settings, direct sampling, bias-T toggle, and UI optimizations.
