    You all probably know about this free app, but I'm new to it and I LOVE it.
    This is a WiFi internet streaming radio app. You can search for a favorite composer, performer, etc and Pandora will make a "radio station" for you, playing music by that artist, plus similar music by other artists.
    I like a lot of stuff not usually found on "real" radio, but Pandora has it-- Celtic music, classical etc. Give it a try: just search for Pandora on the App Store

    Yeah, it is probably one of the greatest App Store apps out there. I also like "Public Radio Tuner" which allows you to listen to your local radio over the Internet with better quality and no static. :)

    Oh thanks. I'll get that for sure. Most of my podcasts come from public radio-- shows like "Wait,Wait, Don't Tell Me" and "The Capital Steps" which I always seem to miss. Getting them by podcast is a real godsend.

    +1 for Pandora.

    -1 for Last.Fm because it requires buffering.

    buffering really isn't too much of a problem. besides, where do we find Pandora for the ipod touch?

    Yeah

    Yeah, I really like it also, turned me on to several new bands which I am planning on downloading some time soon.

    Great app, only bad side is that 6 skip per hour rule... But that's only per station which is great.

    Only thing I really dislike is that you can't go back to play an app or something because... It is an app :p

    But hey, it's free, so who am I to complain?

    Are you from outside of US? Pandora is currently only available to people living inside US.
