Anyone use Pandora internet radio?

Just heard about it the other day. You give it some songs or artists that you like, and it will continue playing more songs that it thinks is similar to what you like. There are a few limits for the free version but they don't seem overly intrusive. Overall it seems pretty cool.

Yes, LOVE IT!!!...my son suggested it to me about 6 months ago...it's great...you get to choose the artists you like, and they recommend similar artists and play songs that are part of your own 'personal radio station'...
Check it out!!!...I believe it is Pandora.com...

I use it on my Droid incredible phone. I does a good job of serving up similar music and you can rate it a thumbs up or down. Gets my vote as a must have app

I use it sometimes on my iPhone.. I have been using Slacker more often tho, has some predefined stations and does a better job matching similar artists imo.

Wow........DG you need to get more in touch with the new tech J/k

If you like Pandora, try slacker radio, I find it to be better selections and customization options. If you have a Android phone or Iphone, you can stream using the apps for the respective phone and play it through the USB connection in the Camaro........and its all FREE!! You can pay for a subscription to get rid of the ads, but they don't come on every other song.

I do find that Pandora has more ads than Slacker Radio.

That sucks..........I haven't met many people using the Android's in the new GM cars. But thats another reason why I went with the iphone last year. Since it has a 35%, or might have gone up by now, of market share, more manufacturers are going to be provide support for iphone than an Android.

The irony is that GM is starting to partner with Google for more and more things...including an OnStar app.

I've been using it for quite a while. It gets better as you go too if you make a custom station with a dozen artists and make sure you click the like and don't like often.

No smart phone for me ... just a water damaged Samsung that's usually dead, lol.

Slacker I think has a bigger library too I use slacker once my Pandora free hours are up (I listen every day at work, so usually half way through the month 40 hours are up)

see above, I can use mine but I have an older car, and it is just a hardwired FM module, still very clear though and very useful for road trips.

Pandora figured out I was a Canadian ... stupid licensing ... guess I'll have to go somewhere else. It was nice while it lasted though.
