Pandora vs. Slacker vs. Spotify: iPhone streaming music app showdown!

While iTunes is the undisputed king of digital music, it doesn't offer streaming or subscription services, leaving the field wide open for a wide variety of contenders, including Pandora, Slacker, and Spotify. That's important because not everyone wants to buy their music. Some iPhone users want more variety and a better way to discover new music, or simply re-discover old favorites. That's because music is personal. It has to suit both our general tastes and our mood at the moment. A good streaming music app needs to reflect this. It needs to have music available that we like, when we like, and the better it does that job, the better it is.

Pandora, Slacker, and Spotify each have their own unique take on streaming music, but which one does it best?

Slacker announces iPad app, free service in Canada

Slacker Personal Radio is coming to the iPad in an all new, all optimized app that lets you sit back, put your feed up, and browse and enjoy music on the big, bold screen. Want more? Well, if you're in Canada they're also launching the same free service they've had before in the US. You'll still be able to go premium but if you just want to try out some ad supported content, you've got it.

Fring, Slacker, TeleNav, NAVIGON comment on Apple's iPhone 4.0 multitasking

The first of Apple's big iPhone OS 4 announcements was multitasking, and the first set of multitasking announcements were APIs to let streaming music (think internet radio), location services (think navigation, check-in games, social networks), and VoIP services (think internet telephony) register threads in the background. For users this means you can keep listening to your songs, getting your turn-by-turn directions, and answering your virtual phone all while surfing the web or playing a game.

To find out what it means for developers, we asked some. Read what they had to say after the break!
