    Always been a fan of Pandora. Slacker is great too, but a pretty heavy app and you have to pay for station caching, unlike on BlackBerry where it is free. Last.fm is available bundled with shoutcast on TuneWiki, so you get 3 apps in one. I like last.fm because it plays on my phone and xbox.

    If you have to pick one, go with TuneWiki.

    For net music I use Droid Lite - it is great as it streams tunes direct from shoutcast - I just use the HTC app for my own music.

    Just downloaded Mixzing... very nice! It adds Genre playing on the Cliq that the stock Android Music Player doesn't have.

    /BD
    ** UPDATE **
    The Genre section of Mixzing just takes you to your list of songs organized by genre, but you cannot then do a shuffle "within" the genre?

    Am I doing something wrong here (Sorry to hijack your thread, Phil ) but why list songs by genre in this app if you cannot play them that way? I don't want to build a new playlist and when Mixzing provides its "recommendations" it is not just the genre list!

    /BD :rolleyes:

    I used the stock music player, although I may try out a couple of the previously named apps just out of curiosity. For streaming, I stick with Pandora if I am on WiFi as I have no 3G here. Out and about? I sit in a corner and pout.

    Pandora for streaming and Mixzhing for mp3's. (I actually prefer slacker's interface, but on my Hero it gets skippy when the screen times out).

    Mixzing for local music and videos, DroidLive for streaming.

    Now that someone's FINALLY managed to get an EQ into their media player, I'm hoping that feature makes its way to Mixzing at least

    Tunewiki works for me most of the time, except for those occasional songs that the lyrics don't sync with properly.

    I normally use the stock app for music on the Sprint Hero because it can be controlled from the lock screen. If it wasn't for that it would be mixzing.

    Pandora is better than Slacker IMHO, but I don't like to stream because I miss a ton of calls when streaming.

    I loved using Rhapsody when I had the 7-day trial for the beta, but can't use it anymore. I still like buying my music.
    I do use the stock app from time to time, but it doesn't work well. I'm excited to try out Mixzing after all the recommendations here.

    I use the stock HTC sense player with my own music & Android central podcast on 8gb SD card. Works excellent.

    I use the stock player for my music library. I will use Pandora for streaming music. I like the way it ties in with my online player. Since I listen to streaming music at home, I just use the online Pandora site.

    I use the stock player for my very occasional music listening on my nexus one. Mostly I'm listening to podcasts. I'm also planning on using MortPlayer to play some audiobooks.

    Personally, I just love Pandora. I use it on my work BlackBerry and my Droid and have used it for a long time.

    PANDORA! Is this what a streaming music player is like? Holy popcorn Batman!!!! A huge thank you to everyone who answered this post! I've never used anything like this and I'm giggling like a little kid while playing an old Michael Jackson song. I LOVE MY NEW ERIS! I LOVE THIS FORUM!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! Please keep doing these Q&A threads. It's been more helpful than anything I've found thus far (just got my Eris yesterday).

    I don't even want the invisithingy! I just had to say thank you!

    Honestly? I'm a no-frills kind of guy. I'm fine with the default music player.

    I'm a huge fan of Slacker for my MP3 player, and Pandora is great as well, but if I've got local music? I just play it in the built-in Android player.

    Been using the stock player, Slacker (when I can deal with the bass bug) and just started using AOR for shoutcast streaming.

    I use the stock player for my large collection, but wish it was more functional with some things. I like slacker over pandora for someone else's music though

    Pandora, definitely. I've decided that I like the Meridian player better than the stock player. It has a few extra features that the stock player doesn't have including viewing and playing files directly from a folder. The interface is a little prettier, too.

    Been trying out a lot of the suggestions listed here. I think I'm loving Bplayer- All of the others just seem to lack. I did like rockon's new player (cubed) but still wasn't perfect. As much as I love my droid, Iphone really nailed the music player (of course)

    Stock player + Last.FM here - I've been scrobbling my desktop tunes for many years now, so it's great to finally have a phone (Moto Droid) that can do the same!

    I still use the stock player on my Droid. I've been working on updating all my tags on my MP3 collection through my desktop, and the stock player works well on reading all ID3 tags and embedded album art.
