Audio app issues
I have used the Pandora and NPR apps in the past, and more recently started using the Audible app, and playing music off my droid with the default Music app. For some reason I have had problems using NPR, Pandora or the Music app. Here is what's going on:
It does not seem to matter whether I am using my wireless network at home or at work, or if the wireless is turned off, and I am just using the 3G signal. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling NPR and Pandora several times each, and also clearing out memory by terminating unrelated software, but have had no success with that either.
- My phone periodically reboots itself when I am using the Music app.
- With Pandora, it regularly stops while playing, as if it is paused. Hitting pause and then play does not resolve the issue. I can forward to the next song though, and it starts working again, only to freeze up again towards the end of the song, causing me to have to forward it again. Pandora never used to have issues, but seems to have developed them over time. Pandora also forces the phone to randomly reboot.
- NPR freezes regularly when playing. NPR has had this issue since day 1. NPR also forces the phone to periodically randomly reboot.
- Audible is obviously an audio app, and it never gives me any problems.
Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions out there?

Same issue with Pandora
I'm also having the same problem with Pandora: It plays a few songs and then freezes whether I'm on wi-fi or 3G. Clicking "play" doesn't help. The only thing that gets it going again is to skip to the next song. It plays a few songs, then stops playing again.
I have already uninstalled and re-installed the app. Today I also downloaded the new update that came out for the Android (running Android version 2.3.3), but the problem persists.
