Personally I like WunderRadio. Works really well. Not much more to say about it really.

+1 Tunein Radio is awesome. I use it to listen to Triple J all the time.

I use TuneIn Radio, it's the best of the bunch - i've been through a lot of them to reach that conclusion :)

Yes, Tunein is excellent, Ootunes is also worth a look. It's maintained by an individual developer who does a good job of keeping the database up-to-date, and the app has a number of features and stations TuneIn doesn't have.

Im using TuneIn on both an ipod touch in the kitchen and my nexus when Im out and about and its fantastic.

We dont bother with FM reception on the radio at all anymore and just stream everything, in fact I dont even bother with the FM in the car either.

Another for TuneIn. I use it as my alarm clock/radio in the morning, and in the evening I use it to access BBC Radio 4 comedy podcasts. A great feature is the ability to record radio, which is handy for storing up a playlist of comedy shows to listen to later, when the podcast disappears. My only gripe is that I can't export these recordings via iTunes to put them on another device. It would be good to be able to burn a CDs worth for my elderly, technophobe mother. I'm guessing that would be a copyright infringement though...

I have radiobox and fstream.

All I have seen have lots of shortcomings. All I want to do is:

Add url for station (including wma)
listen

I don't want a built in browser a massive list of stations.

fstream is the closest I have got but the UX is ugly (with weird conventions as well).

Similarly ugly is Buzz Player, but it works like no other app in the appstore...

I use TuneIn as I can stream Solid Gold through the Home Theatre as we can't pick up it over the airwaves here in Tekapo.

Yeah, I find Triple J reception is pretty lousy across this whole country to be honest. :-D
