    flycast or slacker radio app?

    Advertisement



    So I've got both slacker and flycast radio apps on my bold right now, and so far both work great! But I'm trying to determine which one I'm going to keep. I like the fact that I can listen to radio stations from other parts of the country on flycast, including my hometown of milwaukee. But if slacker is better, I'm willing to give that up. So which app do you guys prefer! Any pros and cons of either application? Thanks guys!

    If you like things on both then keep both I have Slacker, BerryTunes, NobexRC, and the native BB media player. They all have pros and cons and I use all of them regularly for different things.

    I had Flycast its nice, but I couldn't deal with that constant buffering. Now Slacker, there's Nothing wrong with that: CD quality Music, almost every Genre you can think of, absolutely No buffering, and for us Boldberr/Berry Users (cache) take your stations where you don't have a signal, I'm already a Plus Member

    I have to agree with azstar. Keep both. I have All the same that azstar has on my Storm and enjoy each of them for different reasons. I would probably not need most of them though if Kinoma Player could be made for Blackberry phones. Now that's one powerful app that I loved when I had a Treo and would definitely snatch up if it were ever made for Blackberry phones. :-)

    I use Slacker, never tried FlyCast but my slacker works great. I listen to it in my car and at work on the internet. Really fast and quality is great...

    Skacker for sure. Also I AM a fan of talk radio - I use Moodio for that except if you put your BB in your holster with the "sleep" function it'll shut down. I also have Nobex but I don't use it much - don't do much "popular" stuff. It has some classical that I like It's a big (radio streaming) world out there.

    I've used both and I prefer Slacker. I already have Berrytunes and Moodio so this is a nice complement to the others.

    I use Slacker Radio. It's great. Flycast didn't work for me when I had it so I ditched it. That's my opinion and input.

    You can download Pandora from the Blackberry Application program.
