    I don't notice the slowdown after I'm done like you do, but I'm not surprised if it does suck up the resources. I do notice long delays between songs sometimes because of the buffering. On the BB, they had a cache feature where you could be in airplane mode and get continuous Slacker music. Sure hope that comes eventually for basic users.

    On Blackberry (not sure on Android) Slacker could buffer up to something like 6 hours of music. Really neat if you're going to be out of service for a while. Unfortunately, I don't realy like anything else about Slacker so I just use Pandora.

    I use Cherry Rplayer... works great and offers direct links to several local stations. Allows you to connect to Shoutcast and Icecast also.

    Works in Landscape, and seems to buffer just fine.

    Did I mention it is FREE?? No subs and no price to download.

    Finally! iHeartRadio has always given me problems. My biggest concern is that I had full signal strength and it suddenly stopped and would never come back on. The only way I could've gotten radio again was to power cycle the phone.

    Kudos to the developers of the app. :icon_ banana:

    I use both. There's some stations that Cherry will play (like the sports radio station in Chicago I listened to all the time when I lived there) and some that I can only listen to in iHeart

    Only station I need to listen to is Z100 on my way to school in the morning. iHeartRadio is doing just fine so far.

    It's still not perfect, but it is getting better. I got this app the first day it came out and it seemed to work, but a few days later nothing would play so I uninstalled. After seeing on here there was another update, I got the app again, and still was not pleased, so again uninstalled. I have decided to give it another chance, and at least now I can get the stations to start playing, but I am still having issues with it stopping randomly. I have found that if I load another station, and then go back to the previous station it will play again, but having to do this every 10 minutes gets a bit cumbersome and I noticed that my battery was draining very quickly.

    I am also new to droids (only had mine for just over a month) so I don't have a solution. I can only assume that if it worked consistently, it would consume no more battery than a similar app such as Pandora. I can use Pandora all day at work and still have enough battery to mess around with my droid in the evening. I used iheartradio this morning for about an hour, and my battery went from 90% to 60%. When I realized this, I decided I needed my droid to last the day so I stopped using the app. I'm clearly no expert, but it would make sense that constantly switching between stations as I suggested above would drain the battery much quicker than if it just worked correctly. I still really like the app so I will hold onto until it consistently works with no issues.
