Grooveshark is the bomb diggity, the cats Meow, the greatest invention since the creation of bread. Ok, so that's a little over the top but Grooveshark is great! Listen to just about any song you want, when you want, streamed to your device. Create your own Playlists or randomly search for whatever tune you are in the mood for. Imagine listening to any song, any time, anywhere. - Tom

Sirius Radio is really the best. We used to use an iHome to listen to FM and music on our iPods and then upgraded to Sirius and we’re really impressed. We no longer have to hear the same songs over and over. Not only are there no commercials, there are so many stations to choose from, whether it’s music or news or sports.

Pros : We have a Sirius Radio portable speaker for our office, which allows us to set 10 different stations and switch those out if we want. You’ll soon find that 10 is not enough because there are tons of great stations to choose from! We use it for music and the selection is wide ranging, from hip hop and alternative to pop, acoustic covers and music from decades like the 70s, 80s and 90s. There are even a variety of holiday stations around Christmas. The sound quality is really great and it’s nice not to have interruption from commercials or long morning shows with more talking than music. I also like that the stations typically play music long before it ends up on traditional radio stations. I’ve discovered many new bands and great songs that I never would have heard on regular FM. Some channels also play recordings of concerts or invite artists into the studio to play live sets. Sirius also runs frequent contests for subscribers and you can win trips to concerts. Even though you have to pay for a subscription, you’re getting access to exclusive content and a greater number of channels than on the regular radio.

Cons : Very rarely, the portable speaker will cut out or shut off and need to be reset by being unplugged or simply turned on once again. Perhaps it’s an issue with our Internet connection. It’s really the only negative and the positives greatly outweigh this one issue.

My overall impression of Slacker Radio is great. In the era of digital music streaming, Slacker Radio really delivers. And here is why: it is an online music radio station that plays a variety of artists that are similar enough to be in the same genre, without continuing to repeat the same artists. It can be compared to Pandora, only the music selection is more diverse. I have been using Slacker Radio as background music while working, and I tend to always find myself checking to see which artist or song is playing, because the music is fairly diverse. And I really like that! I have listened to online streaming services before, but what ends up happening is hearing the same artists, same songs, and it does not resemble an actual radio station. Slacker Radio, however, proves to be different, and it is worth listening to.

Pros :

  • The pros of Slacker Radio include a free option that allows the listener to select an artist, and then listen to music that is similar to that artist. Fortunately, there is plenty of diversity here.
  • The app is also very good, in that there are few ads for the free version, yet plenty of good songs from great artists.
  • From my experience, the ads are shown when listeners skip through songs, but other than that, the music continues to play. And that is great! Fewer ads, and more songs!
  • A real pro is the amount of diversity between artists and songs.
  • I have abandoned other music apps because it seems like the music is on “repeat,” whereas Slacker Radio has greater diversity.
  • I appreciate that while I am listening to music. No one likes to hear the same old songs on a radio station.

Cons :

  • The only con I can think of is that I don't have any control of the song play from my keyboard when I am listening to Slacker Radio on my laptop, as I do with the downloaded version of Spotify. I have to pause, skip, etc., on the open window with Slacker Radio. Really, that is a first-world con. Slacker Radio delivers!

So far so good I like all their features and how they have my internet radio shows podcasted all over social media platforms!!! I also love the fact that Cloudswave saved me almost $90 on my first year subscription with Spreaker with their coupon! Now that my account is working properly I love this service it rocks!!!

    I’m a little confused. I moved from Grooveshark to Youtube a while ago, for one and only reason: I was not able to share my playlist with my wife, and let her add or remove songs… This morning, I have told myself why not try it back to see how it is now going. Grooveshark.com now redirect to some kind of strange service, not remembering my user and password. I googled Grooveshark and went on Grooveshark.im, same feel and look that is used to, but still now remembering my password. I decided to google more, and try finding what it was going on, to discover that Grooveshark, is dead? Based on Wikipedia, the site closed on April 30, 2015, after a settlement. On July 19, the co-founder Josh Greenberg was found dead. For the last hours, I’ve been listening music on Grooveshark.im while reading on the subject, with “New Grooveshark” closed, but, I’m on right now… hard to explain. Based on Wikipedia again, Apple killed it in 2010, Android in 2011, Facebook in 2012 and Google, 2013. Hard to tell how it survived that long being banned on all the major platform. So far, the suggestions are good, no publicity, and no ad asking for my money. I don’t know how long the site will be on since there is nothing anywhere, no contact form, or terms. I searched for many different song and artist, and found everything I was looking for, the database seems ok, but the search is pretty hard to use. I tried to find songs for a specific artist, and had to go thru a lot of different clicks before finding it. The related artist is pretty strange, but related songs seem to be better. A lot of songs are not working, having my client “switching” to the next songs very often. I really thing that Grooveshark is dead!

    Pros :

    • I don’t see any Pros right now, since the service is down, and Grooveshark.im is unusable.

    Cons :

    • Based on Grooveshark.im, so many bugs, the search don’t give anything good.

    While Spotify is lauded in public for its innovation, if that's what you're after then Grooveshark takes the crown. It's also the most adaptable of services looked at, as it's available in desktop, mobile and web browser-based incarnations.

    The app gave me the ability to drop down my Sirius plan a notch too, because I didn’t need all of the radios I was using anymore. It saved me money, and I got added value as well. For me, this app really is the icing on the cake, but I’m admittedly a big fan of the service. If you’re a music buff, give the app and SiriusXM a shot. Who knows, maybe you’ll find a new favorite app like I did.

    If you’re strictly looking for an Internet radio service, Slacker Radio is probably the best on the market today. Plus, it is one of the few that concentrates on providing news and sports channels too. Not available internationally though.

    Spreaker offers a variety of free and pro user plans. You pay nothing for the free, ad-supported accounts, while the three pro versions cost different rates based on the features and volume of recordings you want. All offer the same sound quality and unlimited bandwidth for the host and their listeners.

    Even though the bugs in Grooveshark really bug me, it turns out they weren't dealbreakers. I haven't used my iPod since I started using this Grooveshark Anywhere App, which is a win for me since I now have less thing to carry around . I think that with a few bug updates and fixes, this will prove to be an amazing app.

    It is safe to say that almost anyone can enjoy Spreaker. Mainly because of the free account registration and diverse selection of topic covered. This allows Spreaker to reach out to many rather than a very selective group. Users can search for a topic that they find interesting and start listening. The other type of user that would love Spreaker is the aspiring radio personality. It’s not easy to get your own radio show. Most people do not have the time or money to begin such an undertaking. Spreaker makes it simple for anyone to manage and air their own internet radio show, even on a non-existent budget.
