No Slacker MM?
Nope. I bought that Woot G1 and I only turned it on twice. I can only handle a few music options at a time.
Who listens to their apps in the car over the 3G network if they have a Iphone.
I have done this but not regularly. Works great.
I need an iPhone compatible FM transmitter, I have one for the 8GB iPod Nano but doesn't work with iPhone.
Orb Live - streams usirius and live tv to my iphone
Usirius Starplayr (beta testing)
Public Radio - I love this app
Wunder Radio - plays real player streams
Sticher - awesome app
Concert Vault - classic rock you will not hear anywhere else divided up by artists. Amazing.
Last.fm good for researching unkown bands people may mention to you.
I listen at work over 3g... computers are locked down and no wifi available. It works great. Some apps, like slacker, sound perfect.
I have most of these as well (stitcher radio I wasn't real impressed with, but maybe I'll give it a second chance) between AOL, iheartradio, the Public Radio apps and Flycast and a few others I must have every station in the world, or damn near. Then you add Slacker, Pandora and Last.fm and my own personal collection and that makes it even better.
Thats cool because I am looking at in the future getting a Iphone just so I can basically have it all if you know what I mean. Does the Slacker app repeat songs alot or is it like the web player.
The slacker app is like the web player. You get access to all the stations on the web player including your custom stations and whatever favorites you've saved from other people's custom stations. For Instance I have DAB's new age station in my favorites. Also unlike the G2 it let's you ban artist as well as song. And for a free app it's very nicely done.

I have yet to hear a repeat on the iphone app!
Is this everyone's experience? I feel like the web player / iphone app has a much larger available catalog.
I took the Slacker plunge, and it's awesome! Thanks for the heads up. Maybe after playing around with it for a while online and with my iPhone, maybe I'll pick up a player. The Blackberry app looks promising too. I just have to wait until Verizon approves the OS upgrade to my 8830.
Yeah I think them putting these apps on the Blackberry along with the iPhone/iPod Touch was very smart. Sirius could learn a lesson from this.
I think you'll especially love the ability to cache channels on that Blackberry once they do approve the newer OS for your phone. Does your have an external slot for memory?
Sirius could stand to take a page from Slacker, and put all their stations on a free app, available to all, but stick one or two commercials every half hour on there. And if you want noncommercial you subscribe to a plan.
The 8830 does have a Micro SD slot. They put it in the battery compartment under the battery. So you have to pull the battery to get at it. Brilliant. I have a 2 GB card in there now with some MP3's. Between my iPod and my Rhapsody to go subscription, I really have no use for the music on there. So, I'm looking for an excuse to put that memory card to some good use. The other stupid thing about the device is that they put a 2.5mm headphone jack on there...so you need an adapter to use normal headphones. Although there is multimedia capabilities on the device, it was definately an afterthought.
I have only been using the iHeartRadio app.
If and when the Xm/Sirius one gets released, I will use that one also.
I will add 'Public Radio' to my list of apps. Any NPR/PRI or other Public radio station in the nation, all 50 states. Good stuff for news junkies like me.
I deleted the Slacker app from my 3g; The app would crash after EVERY song. Too many log in failures as well. Back to Pandora for me.
Seems to me these newer 3G phones and newer iPod Toches have had nothing but problems with a lot of apps, yet folks with the older version have very little if any problems. Whatever Apple changed between generations is really causing a lot of problems.
My Slacker works flawlessly and has never crashed a single time since I installed it.
What versions do you guys have of the 3G and Touch.
