I'm still paying the old price of 3$/month as I subscribed before December. Nowadays you pay 9 if you want mobile streaming. Online streaming on the other hand is free.

The Android App is also pretty cool. You can even download songs for offline listening.

As Aaron Fournier said, I do wish they would add some scrobbling support to their apps, but I doubt they would willingly inter-operate with a competing service. I do also notice some cross talk between stations; I'll start hearing songs I 'liked' on other stations coming on stations I wouldn't necessarily expect.

We do have a joke about Pandora always getting back to Led Zepplin, they always seem to come up eventually on pretty much every station. Invariably, when a song does come on my mate will say, "Hey, do you guys like Led Zepplin?"

One final note, I've recently found mflow, which adds a twitter like social network aspect to music sharing. It seems like a good contender, but I didn't see a mobile app for it yet. I feel bad putting it out here, but if you'd like to sign up, you might use my invite code. http://beta.mflow.com/signup?invitecode=QBXLI6

Thanks for the intriguing post,
Brad

For instance, people have tried to find a way to scrobble the music listened through Pandora's mobile application, but its API doesn't seem to allow to grab any information that people can use to scrobble.

If you don't subscribe to Last.fm, MOG would seem to be one of the best options. For me, it would come to the service that has the cleanest tags and the ability to scrobble to Last.fm easily. I use Grooveshark a lot, but I would never subscribe just for its ability to scrobble to Last.fm because I wouldn't like how it would submit it to Last.fm. I don't scrobble with Pandora for that reason. I *hate* the way their music is tagged. Instead I manually scrobble the sings I listen to using those services.

This is a problem for Gnome users since Rhythmbox doesn't get album covers, lyrics or context any more.

Grooveshark works here and have local ads. I use it sometimes.
