    It did open slower on the free version.
    (I'm sure that's intentional)
    Good to know. When us cheapskates decide to "give" a little - I probably will in the near future - we get better service. Makes sense to me. I've NEVER complained about anything on Slacker - it's the free version I've been using and it's GREAT!

    I like both and am probably keeping both. Thankfully I have more memory so I'm not forced to choose.

    If you like the cache feature and like being able to get artist bios and album reviews, and see what song is next, stick with slacker.

    If you prefer faster load times, taking up far less memory, shorter pauses between songs go for pandora.

    Or use one for a while then switch, they are both free and easy enough to download whenever you want

    Personally I prefer Slacker because I like the layout of it better and they seem to have more stations with music I enjoy. Additionally, Pandora repeats songs too frequently for my taste. And, with the newest version of Slacer I am able to stream the aPp thru the stereo bluetooth in my car.

    Nobex and Flycast user here: has CANADIAN support. Something Slacker and Pandora don't have.

    Pandora is faster. Its free for clear streaming, and no noise interruption unlike slacker... I deleted slacker.

    ...but slacker can cache, Pandora can't.

    ...and, as you said, Pandora isn't available for every device yet. I can stream Slacker on my 8320 only on wi-fi...and cache too.

    It's all a matter of what you like and need. I still have/use them both.

    I prefer Pandora for 3 reasons, Pandora loads faster, Pandora sound quality (imo) is better, and the mix on Pandora's custom stations seem to make more sense than they do on Slacker.
