Default Best Radio Application

Please Login to Remove!

Hello All,

I don't have a portable radio to take with me when I work out. I was wondering which app for the BB is the best. I would like it to listen to ESPN radio or some other sports talk show... it I wanted to listen to music I would take my ipod. What application works best in you opinion. P.S. I have an 8130 with Verizon service.

I've been using Slacker. There's IHeartRadio and Pandora you could try as well.

Moved to Aftermarket Software.

shubydoobydo, check out the threads in this forum (Aftermarket Software) about the different internet radio apps. The discussions have a lot of good info.

I like Slacker and Pandora, just downloaded iheartradio last night and am liking it so far, but the selection of stations seems limited to me. Each has some different features. I like Slacker because you can cache stations and listen to them when there is no signal. Flycast did not work for me. I have Moodio bookmarked in my browser but some of the stations don't work well. It does have a large selection of stations however.

My favorite is Berrytunes...not free (about $19 after discounts usually available). It's been the most stable of the radio apps I've tried in terms of providing a consistent stream w/out hiccups/skips.

One plus is that it includes both internet radio and podcast streaming (you can also download podcasts if you prefer). I listen to a lot of podcasts so that podcast support is an important addition for me.

It comes with a bunch of radio stations/podcasts pre-configured, and you can also add additional stations/podcasts.

BerryTunes 2.5

It has a free one week trial.
