Applications on the G1

I've been playing with the 1000's of Apps that you can get since day one but lately I've been deciding on which is the best streaming audio app to have. Well first off I used "Antplayer" but I didn't like the way it worked and it buffered a lot, so then I thought I'd found the best one, "Stream furious", did everything I wanted except for AAC/AAC+. Any way used it everyday for the last few months until a new App appeared, this is called "A Online Radio", now this does everything "Stream Furious" does plus the AAC/AAC+ formats inaddition to mp3/m3u/pls.
If it covered the mms:// format it would be perfect.

The other streaming media player that I've been playing with is Beeb player, now this lets you watch live BBC TV plus watch again programs and live and recorded BBC radio.
It's a shame nobody is doing one for ITV, although saying that, "Zatoo" are supposed to be working on a Android version of their player.

More on the G1

Been playing with the Android SDK this week and first thing
I've done it to set up screen grabs.
What you see below is how the web sites appear on the phone itself.

This one is viewing the phone in landscape mode ( the phone has auto rotate!)

Below is a shot of my new Commando transmitter page.
I had to set that up as Yahoo Geocities have decided to shut down all of their free webspaces.
