    Just getting an idea of how many people use which and why. I currently use Slacker, although I feel like Pandora sounds better, I like Slackers programmed stations depending on my mood.

    Your thoughts?

    Ive tried them all, i actually like Last.fm best. I used the site long before i had the Droid and i always felt like they had good reccomendations and good quality music, and you can use the Last.fm Scrobbler plugin on your PC to sync your last.fm profile with your iTunes, which works pretty well. I feel like it skipd some songs on my itunes though, but its still my favorite app. Oh and the widget looks really nice on my homescreen. Hope this helps

    I prefer Slacker because it actually displays the genres.

    I prefer Panda because I haven't tried anything else yet. :)

    I don't know why. It just happened like that. Pandora was the very first one I went for when I got my droid, and I love it, so I just never got around to trying another app. I actually listen to Pandora a lot on my PC now, too.

    I mainly use DroidLive (paid) after reading about the SD problem with Slacker. I am now spending more time with iheartradio.

    I used to use Slacker but recently switched to Last.fm for a few reasons. For starters unlimited skips even on the free version. That alone was reason enough for me to uninstall Slacker. The next selling point for me was that I have several Xbox 360's which also have Last.fm so whatever I like or block reflects on each 360 as well as my Droid. Anything I do is done at all locations and I don't want to waste time setting up different radio stations and likes/dislikes on different devices. Last.fm all the way for me and it's not even close. Limited number of skips? How lame.

    Depends on my mood - Pandora if I want to hear "my" music, Slacker if I want to surf and hear new things.

    I have the opposite experience - Pandora if I want to surf and hear new things., Slacker didn't bring enough new stuff, so I uninstalled. Also Slacker seemed to 'drop' signal requiring me to pull out the phone and reset, pain in the ass on the bike.

    I prefer Last.fm over the rest. As someone mentioned - unlimited skips (genius) and the ability to recommend great music based on all the music I listen to. Pandora is great as well, but they have a limit to how much you listen and a cap on how many skips you can have. It's just a bit more inconvenient. I haven't tried Slacker out though.

    I use I heart radio... Local stations when I want them.

    Otherwise I have both Slacker and Pandora.... Why im not sure, guess because I can.

    I stick with last.fm for the most part, but would like to try iHeartRadio sometime.
