Slacker is Good. The UI is very good, the caching (if you can get it to work) is a great feature. The music index is sub-par. An index based primarily on Genre, title, album artist and year, is not going to cut it. Perhaps they can tell me why I continue to get Christmas music on my Kings of Leon station!

Nobex Radio Companion is Good. The station list is average, but the ability to send the song info and view lyrics (newest version) is something other apps lack. is Poor. The UI (or lack of), battery life, and the simple act of adding stations is old news and leaves a lot to be desired. Now that the other apps mentioned above are available, this app needs an overhaul.

This is just my opinion and YMMV.
Very very informative!!!

I liked Pandora as well. Got it cause my GF uses it on her laptop. Told her about it and she loaded it on her 8310. It works great, very fast and quality is amazing. Hard to believe its streaming on EDGE. No skipping except maybe the first night we got it.
