    I'll start by saying im posting this from my eris using tapatalk and i cant search(i dont think so anyway) so forgive me if there's already a thread for this.
    Im joining a gym that has tv's and to get sound they have stations on fm to hear it. Is there an fm app for the eris? I did search the market but didnt see what i was looking for.

    Such an application would require that the Eris have an FM tuner built in...which it does not. FM frequencies are reused in multiple locations around the globe, so there is no way to accomplish what you want to do without a tuner.

    If you have an iPod you can get this attachment which makes it into a great radio. Cost is a little steep at around $40 I think, but it really is worth it. Probably better to use an iPod than a phone in a gym.

    There is no FM tuner hardware built into the phone, which is what you need to pick up any frequency of an FM signal. If mentioning the iPod is supposed to be a solution for the OP to be able to hear an FM broadcast while he/she works out, well the Microsoft Zune also has a built-in tuner (all hardware models have had this and it works really well IMO), but either way, why wouldn't one just buy a $10 walkman instead? Seems a bit more economical to me...
