    Terrible app,, a must get rid of.. I am in a house that has excellent mobile serive all across the board. It's so good In this area, that I can even get a good signal 3 houses away on my list of available connections. However, on the tablet I have, it gets stuck in buffer mode in videos. Doing searches takes forever, I might as well use dial modems, it was faster.

    Super annoying, it came with the phone & I'm unable to uninstall it, & it takes up a huge amount of space on the phone, & it mimics other apps that I have which I actually use & want on the phone‼️ It would be so much better if it came with the option to uninstall it‼️‼️‼️

    I don't need a radio app on my phone. I should have a say in what I'm able to install on my phone and this is one I definitely don't need. It's just taking up space I could to better use!!

    If its a driver, tell the user what ot does. Otherwise it literally hangs my entire app update queue and functions for multiple wearable bluetooth devices (which I don't own). If I could verify it's purpose or toggle it when I needed it's called functions, then we'd be getting somewhere. It seems pretty standard to ask a user if they would like to share their usage data to optimize the program, or maybe I'm just used to communication and open source programs.

    I'm sorry to have to give this reinstalled app onlien average to stars, but really, liver heard of a radio service for ants? Ants? Holy Mongolian Milwaukee! Since ants have built-in antennas, I doubt they need a service anyway! I'm not sure about this, I'll have to ask my uncle to ask my aunt about it.

    All up dates does not work for me, no local and international radio station available, useless application and even no way to uninstall. Make this application open for uninstalling.

    Can't uninstall yet still on tablet and requesting updates. Space waste. Flag as inappropriate to Google Playstore and tell them it needs to be removed!

    On the Fence. But it is a necessary Evil, for those who READ about why or what this app and related plugins, really do. Harmless, very little Data and space use. Without these Apps, Wearables & Health Apps, will not be compatible with your Phone! There's an App for everything. Why download an unnecessary App. for $$, when Samsung installed these Apps, it was a good thing. These built ins,also let's your Samsung Phone, read your Heartbeat, O2 % level sensor, and more. No security/privacy issues!
