Idk...I'm pretty pleased with having paid off my lifetime subscription around 2 years ago. Only cost me like $10 more a month or something. I get no connection problems on wifi. I listen while I get ready for work. Haven't tried on 3g since the update. ANY app could be better, but this one does what I want...plays the stations I want with sound quality that rivals music stored on the device. Worth the $3 a month since that's all the money they get from me anymore. Emitted from X.
