    Many of us have tried and like the iTunes Radio feature. Having said that, how do you rate it among its competitors like:

    1. Slacker
    2. Pandora
    3. Rdio
    4. 8Track
    5. iHeart Radio
    6. TuneIn Radio
    7. Spotify
    8. Songza
    9. Jango Radio
    10. Others

    Personally, I like iTunes Radio, but the best mix of music (that I like) are found via Slacker and Pandora. What about you?

    iTunes Radio has replaced Pandora as my favorite. I really like the music selection. I still listen to Pandora, Spotify and Tunein Radio.

    I really line it and since I already paid for iTunes Match, no commercials is a great bonus. I've already set my paid Pandora subscription up to not auto renew although it doesn't end until next spring. I haven't used any of the others except for brief flirtatious to try them out.
    You are missing one of my favorites though and that is the NPR app where you can find a stream of your local station. I use that a lot.

    I like iTunes Radio for at home or the office but I use slacker in the car and at the gym. I like being able to download stations. The selection is good on both. I would not say that one is better than the other in that area at this time. If I had to pick only one to keep it would be Slacker though.

    No downloading of playlists for offline use is keeping me from using it. Until then I will continue using Spotify.

    pretty much this. Spotify has a radio feature as well that works great. for me iTunes Radio has replaced Pandora - not used very much.

    here's my list from most used apps to least:

    Spotify
    TuneIn Radio
    Radio.com (KROQ2)
    iTunes Radio

    I created a US iTunes account with my Florida address in order to try iTunes Radio. I have to say that I really like it. That being said, I've never tried other streaming music options, but why bother when iTunes Radio is free.

    I like the preset radio stations in iTunes Radio. There are more variations of them than in Pandora.

    I've been really impressed by iRadio. I liked the setup for it to pick the kind of music I wanted. I've ended up using my iPod for music a lot more than I thought I would because of the radio.

    I'm really enjoying iTunes Radio, I love the selection of radio stations better. I was a faithful user of TuneIn radio, but after using iTunes radio for maybe a day, I deleted TuneIn radio and have not looked back...so to speak I can also add, that since having iTunes radio available, I use it on my phone to stream music soooo much more than previous. Prior to it I'd listen to an hour....maybe 2 hrs a day of music, now I find myself turning on iTunes radio every chance I get, so my listening has gone up to 3+hours a day now !!

    having used a bunch of streaming radio apps, I rate iTunes radio the best. Best quality and very little ads.

    Compared to the others I've used, iTunes Radio is certainly the best based on music library.
