    Last.fm wants $3/month for mobile listeners

    Posted this elsewhere and most have heard the news already I'm sure, but Last.fm just emailed its members today saying they will be requiring a $3/month subscription to stream to mobile devices, including Android.

    So, will you pay it?

    What are the alternatives?

    Pandora - not my favorite but OK. Nothing is more irritating than limited skipping.
    Spotify - haven't tried yet, opinions?
    Grooveshark - haven't tried yet, opinions?
    Others?

    Sadly, I really liked it, but I'm not sure I wanna fork over the cash yet. Maybe if they let you FF, REW, & replay and had a bit more stable app, I would but at the moment I'm kinda meh on it too.

    No thank you. I've never really used it anyway. I use TuneInRadio and TinyShark.

    Grooveshark is totally worth their money, but Last.fm... nope. I have a Grooveshark subscription and use it in my car. LOVE IT. Any song imaginable is on tap, when and where you want to hear it... even on EDGE. On EDGE it just buffers more of the song.

    I'm a huge fan of Slacker Radio. I used the free app for quite a while, and finally upgraded to the plus account, which adds unlimited skips, and a few other niceties. It has become my primary source of music when I'm in the car now.

    And I have just dumped Slacker after a few years, their android app has just never been satisfactory on my phones. I still have Grooveshark, Pandora One, Subsonic, and Rhapsody for tunes, not to mention XiliaLive and a few other streamers, so I'm never needing music. With so much already out there, LastFM will have to give value-add to remain competitive..for what it is now, it's not worth $3/mo to me.
