    Okay so this morning i wanted to listen to Z100... ( i work in NY) and on my way driving i was listening to z100 and they were having this bit i really wanted to listen to.. so i downloaded iheatradio and the program sucks it just constantly buffers.. and everytime i have ever wanted to listen to the radio i cant... on my blackberry it worked but it would cut out and buffer once in the middle of listening, that didnt bother me because i could still listen...

    any one know of any radio apps that actually work well..

    Oh and when i was trying out iheartradio i had ful bars of 3g coverage!:icon_evil:

    Slacker for me. Caching stations is a big plus.

    That's all I get with iheartradio is a bunch of buffering, its a pretty worthless app for me.

    iheartradio is underwhelming for me as well. I continue to use Slacker as my primary music app.

    I agree and hate that it buffers so much. As for Pandora and Slacker, those 2 are fairly interchangable. iHR though is completely different though, it plays actual radio stations so there is no replacement or other app to try. I was also listening to a morning show earlier and it was entertaining until iHR buffered so much and I missed a couple small chunks and then it just stopped streaming. The app looks great, the selection of stations is great, etc, but the buffering sucks.

    Something doesnt make sense. I used iheartradio on a recent trip so I could listen to 850AM (Denver) to listen to a Broncos game.

    When I was in/around a major metro (eg, Albuquerque NM) it was outstanding. I had at least 90 minutes of solid no interruption no buffering service. The AM signal for 850 was poor down there, but I could get enough of it to test it... iheartradio was only about 10-15 seconds delayed from the live signal.

    It cut out a lot once I got out in the sticks and the data service got sketchy, but I kinda expected that. I haven't had occasion to use it since (this was December). Wonder if they did something in an update to break it?

    I just found and downloaded "A online radio" from the market last night and it lets me listen to local radio. Pretty cool with Shoutcast and Icecast directory.

    My local station wasn't listed in their directory but I was able to cut & paste the stations streaming URL and it works. One FC so far but I like it and its free in the market.
