Android apps

Post by Listenup » Mon Dec 02, 2019 10:20 pm

Hi.....my RTL-SDR will be delivered on Wednesday. Could you tell me what are some of the best apps for Android and Windows 10 for it. I'm looking to use it for SWL and as a spectrum analyzer for ham radio right now
Thanks!

SDRTouch is probably the best app for that. RF Analyzer might be worth trying out too.

This dongle destroyed my samsung galaxy tablet. It worked for a few times then the last time the tablet shut down and got very hot near the usb port. Absolutely dead now. The problem is powering it from the device. It draws a lot of power, particularly when you plug it in. Use a powered usb hub and not the device to power it.
Sdroid app is gone from the app store but RF Analyzer is there and works well and is free. It uses rtl2832u driver which is free also.
