Another new application is from Pandora, which lets you create customized Internet radio stations. Pandora is already available on other phones from AT&T and Sprint, for a monthly fee. On the iPhone, it is free. That makes it “a credible alternative to broadcast (radio),” in part because iPhones can be plugged into car stereos, founder Tim Westergren says.
