    On my daily commute I would like to listen to US and world news. On my car radio I can't get any of the news stations. Is there an app that I can download and listen to streaming news for those 20 minutes to and from work each day? It can be any service such as BBC, MSNBC, or whatever. I know it will use data and my Ultra Mobile plan only allows 100 MB per month. (Hey, what do you want for $19 a month?) But I can buy extra data for $10 a GB. Obviously I don't want video, only audio.

    I get a good T-Mobile signal (the network Ultra uses) on my commute so I'm wondering if there's a way to listen to the news streaming on my Android phone. I'd be willing to pay for noncommercial national and international news and commentary.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Have you checked into the news offerings from Slacker and iHeartRadio?

    There are also a few NPR apps, CNN, MSNBC, BBC News, NY Times, The Guardian - just search the Play Store for whichever news services you want. (I got 100 hits on the first page by searching bbc news. Your problem is going to be that there are too many to choose.)
