Other Comments: 

I've seen a lot of radio apps for the iDevices. This really offer something new that I can't quite put my finger on but it is worth look at. For being FREE and the categories are quite impressive. Presents a lot of artist and songs that I would never of heard of before. So if you love music and have a wide taste in music. Then this app is a must to try.
