    Hi,

    I've been reading around quite a bit and got my Droid today. I am looking for an app that streams FM stations online. I used something like Wunder radio on the WinMo platform. I am not interested in Pandora or Slacker as I want to stream real talk/music stations around the US. Anyone have luck finding one that works good?

    Thanks,

    Great forum and phone.

    It's a no go on iheartradio. The app is only available for iPhone and Blackberry and web streaming requires Flash. Perhaps they will release an app for Android. Or until Flash is supported in 2010. One has to happen, right? Lol.

    A search for "FM radio" in the marketplace results in disappointing results. There are some apps for specific stations, and one that has 13 stations, though they don't look very promising.

    I've downloaded the Slacker Radio free app. Been listening to the Foo Fighters channel for the last two hours. It plays music from the same genre, not just Foo Fighters. No audio advertisements and every song has been good. No buffering with the exception of the first time you hit play. Jumps right into the next song if yo u want to skip a song. I haven't tried any others and probably will not. I have no complaints.

    lol, FM radio Junky, not internet. Anyways, I find the Slacker app to be disappointing. The audio quality is not up to par with Pandora, Last.Fm, I could go on and on...

    i am using 'stream live radio' to listen to my station. it streams in acc+ so mp3 streams work too. it is a shoutcast client. demo(free) run for 5 min then you have to reconnect. app has tiny writing but usable once you get your station into your fav list. searches the shoutcast database to find stations but you can input stream urls directly.

    I use moodio, the only shortcoming is that I can't multi task when listening to the stream. When I select the home the stream stops immediately. Does everyone using moodio have the same issue or is it just me missing something ?

    I found an app called 'A Online Radio' that might fit your need. I just downloaded it but haven't had a chance to really play with it yet.

    Moodio tries to open the video app and then says it can't play it. What app does it open when you get it to play?

    I use Cherry Rplayer. It has stations all over the US and World. It is searchable by direct input and has a directory of preset searches, it also allows you to save favorites. :cool:

    "A Online Radio" is great. Not the best UI but tons of stations (shoutcast/AAC/etc).

    Moodio opens the video player for me too but it plays just fine. I did notice that sometimes it has issues connecting to the stream so maybe that is what you are experiencing.

    If any of you former BlackBerry users were fans of NobexRC I have talked to the developers and they are working on an Android version, no time frame for release though. Some good FM radio apps are needed.

    I just checked out A Online Radio. It looks very similar and does what I need just as well. Thanks for the help. That was the last thing I needed to move over from Windows Mobile.

    I started using Streamfurious, but became frustrated with the amount of time it takes to begin playing a stream, even over wi-fi.

    After reading this thread I got A Online Radio and love it. It starts quickly and disconnects less frequently than Streamfurious so far. I was also able to add channels, so I have a clean Favorites list.

    I recommend the stream at opbmusic.org
