    I have DroidLive (Xiia) Lite and it constantly buffers througout the song. It's annoying. What can be done?

    Pandora and Slacker do not have buffering issues. I assume LastFm does not as well b ut have no experience with it. But understand that these apps do not play radio stations. They played self created stations of chosen genres of music.

    Another vote for Radiotime. Just bought it and love it. Great ap and well worth the money. Also the web based interface on my home computer is very nice. Add a preset on my Mac and it is recognized on my Droid.

    With the myriad of music aps for the Droid I was able to cancel my XM subscription. Everything I listened to on XM is readily available on the Droid without a monthly service charge.

    Man I love this phone!!!!

    On my commute to work I have a few dead zones. I'm hoping to find a player that will let me crank up the buffer to get through them. First question is, can you please tell me what the max buffer setting for XiiaLive (DroidLive) is? And how did your test go? Thanks!

    I also tried xiialive buffer size. It doesn't really change anything, even if I set the max buffer to 20 000 ms.
    I was using pocket tunes under windows mobile and I could drive 200km without any buffers ! It's not the same with android. I havent found such a good application so far.
    Radio time is maybe good with buffers but it doesn't play aac+ streams. mp3 has really a bad quality at low bitrates. With a 32kbps aac+ stream you have a good sound quality and less buffers.
    There are few apps with aac+ support unfortunatly.
