I've tried all of the other major music streaming apps and nothing beats livexlive/slacker where it counts: playing a station that you won't end up endlessly skipping through. The ability to play music that matches what you're in the mood for is second to none, and the ability to fine tune a station to play newer/older or similar/more diverse music gives you all of the power to play what you like. And you can like or dislike a song and it stays specific to the station. So maybe you don't want a pop song on your rock station, or maybe you do, and it won't affect if it'll play on another station. I have stations for all different types of moods and nothing else comes close to being able to do this at well. One knock: wish you could skip back to a previous song when on a station. Sometimes i wanna hear the same song a second time without leaving the station.
We have all done it, Create a masterpiece like slacker radio once was, and just to try to toot your own horn you try to go a little further and make it even better, well I am here to remind soccer radio and hopefully any other developers reading this; Sometimes and more often than not more is not better, I unendingly hear people say that they want their old crank windows back and I hate their power windows, I regularly hear people say how over complicating phones have become they can do a ton of stuff but almost no one knows how to reach that point to do anything on them. Even the original slacker radio could have been improved by simplifying and streamlining things. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my extensive history in sales, it is that customers are incredibly smart and intelligent and you cannot pull the wool over their eyes even if they act as though you are. We know when ads developers use bright backgrounds they are probably in cahoots with batteries manufacturers who know these colors drain the batteries quickly, We know when there is over complicated apps and too many buttons and places to do even the simplest things it is encouraging accidental clicks to make purchases or it is encouraging getting lost within the app so that way you view more ads. The company who will win beyond any other company will be the company who throws away all advertising for other people and streamline their services so that buttons are easy to see and push and the app works quick not many people would mind a grayscale big button app for their music in fact most people would want that type of simplicity when you’re in the mood to find a specific song. Every time I try to use this app I spent 25 minutes trying to find music trying to play music to play buttons don’t work things are great out it’s too much stuff on the screen. I have a computer technology degree and I’m telling you over complicating things does not make it better
I hate how some songs aren’t available on demand. I have to google it. For a paid app thats not cool. You should fix this.
Will buying the app help my connection issues? I been dealing with your spotty connections since 4G go started & now with my new 5G phone same connection issues..smh
The music is great but the "Fine tune" feature and the ability to cache stations puts this app above the rest. Love that I can watch live music festivals (although I wish they were store for viewing later). Works great with the integrated software in my Toyota Tacoma. Great job Team Slacker! You guys rock! One con: MUST GET APPLE WATCH APP! I’m waiting guys, bring it!
I was researching some other music streaming apps & came across this one so I decided to give it a try, I’ve went ahead & purchased the premium subscription. I’ve had other similar apps & so far this one definitely delivers 😅
his app doesn't always play automatically despite it being set as such in my settings. It constantly asks if I want to enable notifications, which I have said "no" to at least twenty times. But the biggest slap in the face of all is that, despite paying $10 a month, the app thinks it's acceptable to show me advertisements popping up in front of my stations. No, I don't want to see a "YouTube vs. TikTok" anything. Slacker was better than Pandora, but if I see another ad, there's clearly no reason for me to continue paying for the service.
The app doesn’t support airplay. It will play 1 song then just switch back to the internal speakers. Same problem on both ipad and iPhone
I paid for premium and the app does not work! I can’t replay songs or do anything that the premium plan would let me do. The customer service is bad via email they just say you have a Plus account , but no I sent prove that I have a premium account and they have me back and forth with the same thing. At this point I paid for one month and is about to expire so I would never use this app again, waste of money!
