    +1 for Tunein Radio. I've had it for a while on my iPod Touch, and was delighted to see it finally arrive for Android!

    yeah TuneIn Radio everytime. Tried all the others and they struggle to find a lot of stations whereas this gets every one that I want.

    Great app and its free :D

    I tried tunein and liked it, even bought the radiotime version. It is great to find new stations, but it needs to long to buffer and stops playing al the time. Also the play icon often stays in notifications even though the app has stopped. (desire 2.2)

    I switched back to the free "A online Radio" It is much more stable and does not skip all the time. Buffering is much shorter. The user interface is not as nice as radiotime / tunein though. You may also want to check xiialive.

    With TuneIn you need to exit it correctly otherwise it will keep playing. Menu>Exit and confirm.

    I have fiddled with the settings a little and it works perfectly for me. Tried the others and none of them would find the specific station I wanted but TuneIn did first time.

    At a guess this streams via internet through the phone, can someone confirm this?
