This is by far the best app out there for listening to ShoutCast™ or Icecast™ ! I use this app all the time! You can chose to play the station that you are listening to in-app or in the built-in Palm audio streaming app. You can set up a favorites list, to house all of your favorite streams so you don’t have to keep trying to use the search to find them. You can stop, and play the stream, and there is even a nice little sleep timer in there, so you can set it on your Touchstone® Charging Puck, and go to sleep listening to your favorite music. This developer has also developed “App Trigger,” (direct download link) which will start playing music whenever your phone connects to a Bluetooth® audio device, or you connect headphones. If you think that you would like Internet Radio, then go and get it here.

Longevity:5/5 – This is an app that I think will be around for a while, as it is one of the best apps out there for playing Shoutcast™ or Icecast™.
