What music service do you use?

THere's so many out there. MySpace has been relaunched as a music service, Pandora is in cars now, Spotify is growing... I still like Shoutcast on WinAMP but it's not going anywhere, except maybe for Chronix radio. So I'm curious what's popular.

I use Pandora at work, and TuneIn on the TV for listening to Irish radio. Traveling in the car I'll use Pandora or some apps of fave stations.

I mostly use the ZunePass, but I occasionally use Pandora as well.

I listen to it all day at work, and in the car from my phone during the commute, and of course at home too mostly from my phone hooked up to speakers. I thought I would have trouble discovering new music, but between the radio feature and playlists that I subscribe to that are updated often, I don't have that problem at all. I probably "discover" new music more regularly now than ever.

Spotify at work, Pandora in my car. I'm debating on paying for Spotify so I can use that in my car.

Re: What music service do you use?

^ depends on your phone, honestly.
If you're using an iPhone, it's excellent. My wife uses it all the time.
If Android, you should install the preview version, even though it's kind of buggy. The official app in Google Play is pretty outdated.
If Blackberry, WP7, or other... the apps work. That's about it.

I love Spotify as well and subscribed to the premium version. The playlists and ability to discover music are great. I also like that I can subscribe to friends playlists that they create and visa versa. Also love that you can have collaborative playlists where anyone that subscribes can add tracks to the playlist. The iPhone app is spectacular and I find myself listening to it on my commutes to work or about any time I am in the vehicle.

Re: What music service do you use?

I was going to say, does "none" mean I don't have my hipster cred? By the way when did internet radio (TuneIn) become a music service?

Re: What music service do you use?

I had Napster on my phone forever, it was a bit pricey, but the shit worked damn well for me. Then last fall, Napster was apparently merged with Rhapsody...and I can tell you, there was a serious quality drop in every single area. Rhapsody is awful, I really need to stop being lazy and switch services.

Re: What music service do you use?

I almost solely use TuneIn for music. Since I use Subsonic to connect to my home mp3 collection, I'm always connected to a huge collection of stuff I know I like. When I just want random music, I'll use TuneIn, and browse through my favorites list, which displays what's on at the time, and pick a station. Paying for music is so 20th century.

Just writing to say that the new Android app is now available on Google Play. We no longer need the preview version.

Thanks, this seems pretty cool. I just have to force a few friends onboard however.

Spotify just added the radio Pandora-like feature to their mobile client.
