    F.Y.I

    Just thought I would let those interested know that the ESPN Radio App is finally available in the Market for $4.99.

    That is all...

    Why would they charge 4.99? That's just ridiculous. I wanted an ESPN radio app, but not THAT much.

    Nope, they get you there. Try it. You can listen to like 5 shows, none of which are streaming like Mike and Mike or the Herd (my personal favorite).

    I've NEVER listened to a show before where half the time I agree 100% and half the time I disagree 100%, all with the same person (The Herd).

    Its insane but sometimes I am listening to him and I'm saying to myself "Yes, you tell 'em" and then 5 minutes later I want to kick him down a flight of stairs! :D

    Awesome! That's 4.99 more than what I would pay for it.

    HAHA, thats really funny, I can see how some people would be that way. I agree with him 95% of the time, and sometimes when I don't, by the time he ends up explaining his side, he has persuaded me to join his ship :)

    Most sports talk radio I just can't listen to though, Mike and Mike can SOMETIMES be okay, but I dunno, I just can't get enough of The Herd.

    Mike & Mike is cool to listen to just waiting for The Herd to come on.
    He is pretty out there though, but a lot of the stuff he says makes sense. I don't listen to it when Doug fills in for Collin though

    Again, why wouldnt people be using RadioTime? It is $2.99 but you can catch live streams from around the world including plenty of stations with ESPNs lineup.

    Just wondering.

    Given that choice, I'd take "nobody" any day. Can't stomach Cowherd; way too in love with his own voice.

    Cool but at 4.99 it's overpriced, however you get also local radio, like new york 1050.

    I've been using Cherry Player to listen to 1050AM New York...it works FINE, but I went ahead and picked up the ESPN app anyway. I've spent more money on a lot of things that I DON'T use...but I'ma actually use this app EVERYDAY. Guess I'm an ESPN fanboy =P Must say that it's REALLY polished looking...my ONLY complain is that podcasts are streamed ONLY...they should be downloadable?!

    $5 is a lot when you can simply get it free on ESPN's web site. They're asking you to pay $5 for the convenience of not having to go their web site. And you're getting ads anyway. Why should I pay for an ad-supported service?

    Not in the app, in the audio on the app.

    OK. This could be a Godsend for me in the office. I'm currently forbidden from listening to espnradio on the net. But I have a few questions:

    I don't listen to any music on my phone. Would I just be listening through the phone speakers or would I have to buy some small speakers to plug in? The phone speakers alone can't be very good, right?

    My phone would essentially just be laying on my desk at work. Would I have to buy some sort of Sirius-style dock for the phone to be in?

    Wouldn't this completely drain my battery throughout the day?

    Thanks a lot.
