App looks nice and the controls are ok... I find it to be BS that I paid 9.99 for the premium subscription and it still plays random commercials, ya there’s no pop up ads but if you’re advertising no ads then there shouldn’t be any including the commercials. I think I’ll stick to pandora
My mom & I have had this music app for about 8 years now & it’s my absolute favorite. We got rid of our premium account a few months ago to save money and that lasted 1 week.. premium is amazing.
I love Slacker. I actually used it religiously about 10 years ago. It has always done a great job of mixing old and new with my custom stations. I left Slacker long ago when they made all the huge interface changes. I subscribed to Pandora and never really looked back. Fast forward to this week. I decide to see what’s going on with Slacker. Plus I wanted to see if my old stations had any gems I forgot about. I downloaded the app and connected it to my car stereo. The first thing I noticed was the sound quality was way better. Everything sounded more full than my pandora music. 2nd is that unlike pandora, my phone didn’t got into “accessory mode” making it hard to control it the way I want. 3rd was the interface looks great! Much better than the old blue colors of pandora. My only thing with it is why is it so hard to get to my custom stations? I couldn’t care less about the premade stations, I want to see a list of mine the moment I open the app. Instead I have to go to my music, then scroll around until I find custom stations. It should either be there from the get go or one tap away. Another bonus that I never thought I would like... djs and little snippets of news in between songs. They are short and informative and really make it feel like a premium radio station. Remember the old XM radio? It’s similar to that. Now XM has mindless bla bla bla in between songs. This is different and they nailed it.
Good stations but music keeps stopping when connected with Airplay please fix
They’ll be a small video ad during the music playing that actually stops the music because of the video and it’s very annoying. Get rid of those video ads or fix it so it doesn’t stop the music.
Why the &@*# are you playing news on my paid music station!???? Guess I’ll be going back to Pandora.
I guess the dash radio stations fell through huh slacker.... slacker hates the metal community that’s why there’s only 9 stations... nothing updated same boring playlist on classic metal,,,, party metal not updated since 2008. Sudden loss of AOL radio... still upset over that. Very rude staff that needs retraining. Bring back the slacker forums... reddit slacker is a ghost town and the mod has a bad attitude. No fine tuning for offline mode.. staff told me it’s due to copyright...... bull crap... I will no longer be using slacker radio....
This app allows you to filter songs to only listen to those that you have favorited - it never ever works.
This app rapes you for 10 bucks a month. You make a favorites list and it adds crap you don’t want. No equalizer either. This app isn’t worth 10 bucks a month, 4 maybe but not 10.
Slacker keeps coming up on my sleep screen, & I can’t see my other notifications. No way to uninstall slacker once it’s downloaded?
