Standard FM Radio

Why is the radio so crap?

I want to listen to Clyde 1 radio station on my Orange branded unrooted non romed HTC Desire but compared to the radio on my iPod Touch using a radio app it's dreadful. Can anyone help?

I've just realised my iPod Touch is using wifi for for connection via TuneIn Radio app whereas my FM Radio on my Desire is using.......well something else.

I wonder if there's an app for Andriod capable of something similar.

Just found TuneIn Radio for Andriod on the market I can use over wifi. Kinda solves my problem so ignore this thread. I'm an idiot. *blushes*

P.s. The radio still isn't great when I'm out running though.

Made me chuckle quite a bit! But I have experienced the same problems. Maybe where you're running there there is bad reception for FM Radio? That's my only suggestion. Wish the Desire had built in DAB tbh, would be beaut then!

Totally agree about the DAB part and yeah I run kinda slightly out in the country at my local Windfarm, which probably doesn't help.

The sensitivity of the FM radio is pretty poor IMO, coupled with the lousy system application, it's almost like it's been included as an afterthought. While digital radio would be a nice addition, mobile reception on DAB can be pretty dire and would increase battery consumption considerably.
