    We need a good shortwave radio app that covers the full spectrum of bands, for BB10 devices, namely the Z10. Without any permissions that require you to give any personal information or pin.

    Any thoughts?

    I think that the Z10 doesn't have radio support. That's why all other BB10 devices have radio except the Z10

    Only the stl100-1 z10 has radio and mircast capacity. However other models of z10 don't

    I meant an app for shortwave. The S10 has the ability to listen to radio feeds online. I listen to a scanner feed all the time.

    I meant a shortwave radio app.

    Some people are too quick to answer.

    Shortwave fan, don't see many nowadays!

    "Without any personal permissions"

    Most apps, especially ones like this, need access to this. Whether it be for location based ads or what not, they are not obtrusive to your sensitive data.

    If you're on the 10.2.1 OS, I'd recommend you trying HFBeacon. It's an android app but it does have what you're looking for as there's nothing in the BlackBerry World that accommodates your needs. If you want the APK, I'll be more than happy to give it to ya.

    I was going to PM you but then I saw that HFBeacon was a hunk of junk. http://swling.com/blog/2014/01/the-b...-smart-phones/

    Take a look at the android section of the lower half of this site. It has a bunch of android apps that do the job but Idk which one to pick lol. Maybe you can narrow that down for me. Good thing about it is, Google Play store shows you what permissions the app uses as well if you look in the info area.

    Could someone please explain what this kind of app does? I assume this is some other kind of internet-based communication protocol rather than what I think of as shortwave radio:

    Shortwave radio is radio communication using the upper MF (medium frequency) and all of the HF (high frequency) portion of the radio spectrum, between 1,800–30,000 kHz.[1]

    Why the pin privacy??
    It's essentially useless for anything other than contacting you.
    Am I forgetting something else it can be used for??

    I don't feel like having my personal information demanded, so as to use an app.

    That's not unreasonable, but really, what's so personal about your pin?
    If anything, it's less personal than posting here. I'm sure someone at CB can see what ip you've posted from. That can be linked directly to use probably far easier than your pin.
    I'm not trying to argue, and you're free to disagree, but I don't see the pin as that 'personal'.

    I read this as the original poster just wants an app that delivers streams of shortwave radio broadcats...similar to how other streams are made available for other radio stations.

    It's personal to me, because it belongs to my phone. Thank you.

    It's not in the software.
    Apparently the stl100-1 does have the hardware, but since the other models dont, there's no fm radio in the z10 software.

    Well i would be nice if someone makes an app for it, or if BB send an update to Stl100-1 users

    I don't know if an app is or isn't possible, but it wouldn't be smart for BlackBerry to give a feature to some z10's and not all.
    It's better for the brand to be consistent.
    That would be like some mcdonalds not have the big Mac.

    Agreed. BlackBerry needs to step up and support the Z10 fully, as are the rest, including Q10 and Z30.

    Didn't they say they'd support the Z10 fully upon it's release? Remember this? Time to step up to the plate BlackBerry...we want radio support for the Z10. Enough with broken promises or lack of support.

    I don't agree, I bought my Z10 STL101 for the same price than the other variants. They have LTE, mine not. Why can't I have all the features of my processor? Radio, wifi direct, miracast.
