iHeartRadio music streaming service goes live for Windows Phone 8 handsets
The popular music streaming service iHeartRadio found its way to the Windows Store, after clocking more than 180 million downloads on other platforms. The app takes advantage of some WP-specific features, like the ability to pin favorite stations to the home scree, but other than that the experience is identical with the apps on iOS and Android, including the "Perfect For" feature, which pairs streaming music with your mood.

For Lumia users, the excellent Nokia Music app somewhat duplicates the iHeartRadio concept by streaming curated radio stations to your handset, and even allows you offline playback, but iHeartRadio offers more than 1500 live stations in the US alone, and was the first such service to clock in 20 million user registrations, so it has plenty of differentiation to offer still. Check the live service out from the source link below if you are interested to take it for a ride.
