When I read about this new free radio app I held off to see if AOL would add support for more devices or carriers. Turns out that the app will remain for the Bold only on AT&T and only works in the US. Talk about cutting down your target market!
I happen to be an AT&T Bold user so I gave the app a spin. It works almost exactly like Pandora with limited song skips (I think 5) per hour and the selection of music is pretty good.
Check it out in the App Store if you happen to be a AT&T Bold user too.
