    It is NOT spyware, bloatware, adware, or any sort of malware. If your WiFi driver showed up in Google Play as an app would you be freaking out that it's spyware, adware and what-not? I don't think so. So again: This will NOT hurt your phone/tablet/guinea pig and is just a driver for hardware present in your device. Plus, it takes up no nore than 20 MB of space, so to all people complaining: What sort of potato are you using? BTW, just root if you want this off your phone :D

    app Worked perfectly. I was able to connect my ANT+ heart rate monitor to my tablet and Rouvy was able to connect! I used a cheap Micro USB (Male) to USB 2.0 (Female) Adapter and an old ANT+ usb key that came with my old Garmin Forerunner. With the software installed, no configuration was needed. I just attached the ANT key to the cable which I then plugged into the tablet and Rouvy found the heart rate monitor! Saved me a lot of money as I did not need to buy another heart rate monitor! Thanks to Google! For USB support, this software has to be installed together with ANT USB Service ANT+ ANT+ Plugins Service ANT+ My tablet is a Lennovo running Android 9. This software is for tablets that do not have ANT+ support already builtin.

    STOP TRIPPING!! Its not a radio its FM frequency to connect Smart Watches and Fit Bit type devices so it can communicate with your phone. I bought a Fitbit at Christmas and all of a sudden I see this app on my phone. It didn't come pre-installed on my Samsung S8. It on newer versions now to help make the connection easier for Smart Watches. It helps wrist devices and the app on your phone communicate. It's NOT Spyware, Bloatware or adware.

    This app and its second part have been installed on my devices since way back in 2012 as far as i can just thinking some of the technology that it partners with wasn't even out yet. I dont personally use alot of the services mentioned in other post and i dont think the app is making my device less optimal. I own the hardware they own the software. We cant live without each other but the only place i know of that you get what you get is prison. Edit as needed..

    I understand what people are explaining about the app being preinstalled, and it is supposed to be helping the phone. However, I get paranoid easily especially since I opened a photo stating that people should be aware of a particular URL link because it deals with sex trafficking and THIS APP RANDOMLY STARTED DOWNLOADING... 🤦🏼‍♀️ if this is really the case then I apologize for my judgement without looking at ALL the reviews and I really do hope it's just a preinstalled app. Thank you.

    I think this kind of application is pretty unnecessary for the common person. since I have the ability to uninstall unnecessary stuff at least for this I am uninstalling it. I'm sure it comes in handy for people who are interested in stuff it uses. Im just not.

    More factory installed bloatware that can't be uninstalled completely. Just takes up space. It should have been made as a user download and install. Not forced on phone owners that will never use it.

    The default sound setting of this app is set so low that I have to push the volume control to maximum in order to hear properly. However, the problem comes when I switch from it (the radio) to another audio app like t he music player or video player because I'd have pushed the volume so high that my eardrums are almost damaged by the sudden change in noise levels. Then I have to push the volume way down low to a comfortable level which is too low on the radio.

    This is a very dangerous app and should not be downloaded at any cost. Hackers use it to spy on you. Still don't know why I cannot get this app off my device and also unable to deactivate. This app tracks you and spy's on you. Beware.

    The inbuilt radio operates much smoother than the ones that are added later.For the radio frequency it needs to be compatible to the device and as such you choose the stations of your choice and this helps in connecting easy.

    A critical app for active people (runners, cyclists, triathletes, skiers). ANT Radio Service allows things like heart rate monitors, fitness equipment, garmin watches, etc, to connect to your phone & apps using the ANT+ protocol (much more effective than bluetooth and allows multiple connections). It is NOT some secret gov't conspiracy. Man some of you are real pieces of work. Unfortunately with Android Pie, built-in ANT+ seems to have been forgotten, which is a bummer.

    Inspirational sounds


    I found nice music after I downloaded the app, but didn't use it enough & I tried to uninstall it after zero usage. This app doesn't display an obvious way of uninstalling. Feels like I'm being held hostage. Funny but true. ...1 star because I feel I'm being forced to keep something I don't need!

    How did this app get on my phone and is it spyware? .... Bloatware.... Check permissions.... Yes this is an app that is preinstalled because this company paid Samsung or Google. The permissions to access sensitive information is present. It's funny when the developer has to say the app isn't spyware or bloatware because most of the time that is not true. Open source the code of the app so we, as the users, can see if your claims are true.

    Don't need or use so I should have option to uninstall but as always more preinstalled BS to take up storage, and to be invasive!
