NARF Tablet Radio

NARF Tablet Radio is a simple and robust application for Honeycomb tablets and ICS phones that can play arbitrary web radio streams (e.g. 1LIVE, SWR3, WDR2, etc.). NARF Tablet Radio is small, simple to use and flexibly configurable. It supports automatic reconnects to cope with brief wifi connection losses, looks better than most phone applications. It is free and ad-free. It supports pls and m3u playlists to provide 2-click access to thousands of radio stations online. You can also use it to play linked mp3 files such as podcasts managed by Google reader. What else could you ask for? I don't know. So feel free to tell me ;-).
