    Take it back! Are you crazy? What if we are in some place without internet, what we can do? And this app could be life-saver!

    Remving FM Radio isnt end of the world, but they make W10M less valuable instead of leaving as an extra advantage.

    Seriously, FM Radio can be used for calamities that fancy intenret cannot when the cellular radio tower is gone or too weak to reach.

    BTW iPhone and perhaps all latest flagship phones like Galaxy S7 don’t have FM Radio, still they are selling in good numbers.
    Every month MS is encouraging me to move away from Windows Mobile.

      S7 has FM radio. Leave it to Microsoft to constantly kill off apps while other companies add them.
