    I've tried iheartradio but not very impressed. Was gonna try a few others, but then realized it would probably a lot easier and faster to just ask you guys!

    I had iheartradio installed, but removed it as well. I use Cherry RPlayer and Slacker (there is also Pandora which is similar to Slacker). There are several other people here have mentioned, but I don't remember the names.

    i religiously use pandora as last.fm has sound quality issues and does a terrible job at associating music.

    i like iheartradio for lots of reason, the main one being that it doesn't wait for a buffer before playing music. people will recognize this as pausing and skipping, but in an office with a low quality signal, sometimes that pausing and skipping is better than nothing at all.

    imusic is a great app for downloading mp3s on the fly too.

    btw, this has been covered many times.

    Had been looking forward to adding Flycast when it became available for the Droid. Showed up on the Market last night but fails to install. Tried twice. Same result. Too bad.

    Cherry RPlayer when I want to listen so a "radio" station, Pandora when I want to discover new music based on what I already like.

    I have used Slacker and Iheart but Pandora takes the cake by a large margin for me.

    Droidlive is my favorite. It has tons and tons and tons of Shoutcast stations all sorted by genre. The only thing missing is a landscape mode.

    I'm gonna have to say it's Pandora and Cherry RPlayer. Both very well done apps.

    For those using last.fm, is there a way to have it NOT sensor the language in songs? I find this to be quite annoying.

    I love TuneWiki. The Shoutcast-Streaming is working great without any hickups.

    What about a good GPS navigation app that has a similar feel to say a garmin gps with the 3d view? been lookin around but havent found anything. Not really liking the navigation that comes with the droid but if there is a good app out there i will be able to sell my garmin along with the ipod i no longer have a need for since my droid is so badass.
