Wants you to pay for an app that doesn’t support CarPlay yet? No thanks
I used to love Slacker Radio. Then they started changing. First their name, to Live by Live, and then some of the format, and some of the app itself. I didn’t mind that, it is the way of the world. I get it. But lately, they have gotten greedy and now I can’t finish a song without a advertisement interrupting and advertising in between each song. Granted, it is a free site, but come on!!!! Interrupting EACH song! That is to much for me. I am moving on to someone else. ( Listening 2012-2023)
Looking for King George Angie Stone
You always have what we are looking for in our music I love this app so much merry Christmas and happy new year
I am sure having the benefits of the premium tier (on demand, offline, etc) would make LO as good if not better than Spot YT Pandora etc, but their customizable station algorithms and generous artist stations a la the Pandora model are truly awesome just to shuffle at the middle tier plus level which removes ads, allows for unlimited skips (which learns your tastes), and VERY good audio quality (equal to Spotify’s 320 level and beats YT and Pandora) — is not only good but fun to fiddle with and oh, an incredible bargain. I personally love the news and sports and artist breaks and updates. It’s like an old fashioned radio with stations you curate, ad free, and all with a really personal positive vibe (Red is awesome)… the old wooden Slacker’s still the best in its chic new sequined gown — the diamond in the rough for me! :) (Take a hike Spotify Apple and … not you Pandora .. you’re still on probation)
The app was good, an alternative to Pandora with more obscure music available. But recently, Nov 2022, it stopped playing music in background on my iPhone 13 Pro Max, making it totally useless. I do have a subscription.
I love the app but it keeps telling me that I’m off line even when I’m on Wi-Fi
I love slacker. The variety is vast and eclectic. Very much so in Hispanic, Indy music and comedy genres. Slacker doesn't seem to follow the marketing norms of conventional radio as does pandora and Spotify. I look forward to a compatibility with Shazam. So if you want to be surprised, relive your first concert, have some company during your workout or just listen to your favorite song then Slacker is the app for you.
Great personalized stations, curated to my interests. I have discovered several bands and songs based off of the App’s recommendations. I use it in addition to my Apple Music account, for just $19.99 a year! Good deal.
I can enjoy listening to music on this app every month.
