    Default Pandora, Slacker, or iTunes Radio?

    Which service do you prefer? Or do you just use the radio options in spotify or Rdio? Something different?

    Right now, I'm liking Rdio for my on demand song needs, but I'm looking for something for streaming radio use. And I can't decide between pandora, slacker , or ITunes Radio. Anyone used these and can offer feedback?

    Do you find iTunes Radio to be as good as pandora when it comes to song selection? From what I used of both, which is only a bit, it seemed like pandora was better at that.

    For the most part, iTunes Radio is growing, still new. But I agree Pandora song selection is bigger.

    I prefer iTunes Radio. I chose a pretty obscure artist and it gave me better recommendations, less repeats (on hits mind you), and it's better quality than pandora without paying.

    It's been great for me, still crashes every once in awhile though, only really downfall for me.

    I've heard with more popular songs you can get repeats a lot more often, but for some reason iTunes Radio never fails for me.

    iTunes Radio is first, with Slacker a close second. I no longer have Pandora installed.

    I subscribe to iCloud music storage and am able to listen to iTunes Radio without commercials. I now use it exclusively and have deleted the Pandora app from my phone.

    I don't care for pandora but I listen to iTunes Radio now that it's available on my iPhone. They have new music ( Top - ) which I like.

    Spotify, Tune-in radio, Songza, at the moment.

    Although I want to turn to iTunes Match soon now that it's available in my country. Woot!

    I always used Pandora but it doesn't seem to have that much music and repeats a lot. Now I'm looking at other apps.

    Yeah, I have a beats subscription. I hope they update it more though, especially with a iPad app. I might just solely use spotify, I'm deciding between the two

    I used to use Pandora, but have since gone back to just having my music selection 8 gigs worth just downloaded and stored on device.

    Default Re: Pandora, Slacker, or iTunes Radio?

    Despite having tried several different times over the past few years to like Slacker I just can't. Library seems large enough but, I just can't seem to get the content to ever appeal to me for some reason.

    I've currently settled on Songza for the past several months as it seems to suit my listening needs the best. I'm located in Canada so I don't have access to Pandora, Beats, iTunes Radio and several others (at least without workarounds I couldn't be bothered with) but, I have found that Songza does offer a quality experience for both iPhone and iPad.
