    Coming from a Blackberry Storm, I had Slacker Radio and it was one of the first apps I downloaded on my new Eris yesterday. However, I am finding that the ability to cache radio stations to your media card is missing from the features of the Android app. The cache was extremely useful as it wouldn't force the data connection and thus helped to conserve battery life.

    Is there an alternative app for radio that will cache stations or do I need to hit up the Slacker team to get an update to the Android App?

    I'm in the same situation, coming from a bb, but I liked the cache feature for use in the subway. As I understand, this feature is coming for Android, but it may be part of the paid sub version.
