Slacker Radio is all about reconnecting you with what makes radio great. Our team of curators have built hundreds of stations that will deliver the hits, surprise you, and keep you completely looped in to what's happening in the worlds of music, news and entertainment. Our hosts will keep you company along the way, including guest-commentators ranging from John Legend to Tyler Oakley to Florida Georgia Line.
While we start with an expert team of curators who create exceptional stations, the final music flow is dictated by the songs and artists that you "heart" and "ban." This interactivity even extends into news and sports programming from ABC, ESPN and more.
Listen free for as long as you like or upgrade to a Slacker subscription for ad-free listening, unlimited song skips, offline play and on-demand access to your favorite songs, albums and artists.
Slacker Radio…radio that listens to you.
What's New in Version 6.0.164
Fixes offline playback and various bug fixes
Taking away features
UPDATE: following the February 2015 update, every time I go to play the app, it doesn't load anything and comes up with a network error connection. This is whether I'm on wifi or not, and happens everywhere, not just in my home. I uninstall and reload and it works great once, but once I exit the app, it never works again until I uninstall and reload. I have been a faithful user of Slacker since 2009, and this is the most ridiculous, irritating problem I have ever had with them, or any app. FIX THIS!
I love slacker and have been using it as my main radio app since 2008, but it seems like very time they update they take away more features from non-paying members. We used to have unlimited skips on our favorites playlist, we used to be able to view full lyrics, and we used to be able to view the next artist and song coming up. On top of the constant pestering to rate and review (at this point I'm always choosing no in not loving slacker) the stars just keep dissipating. Maybe we won't even be able to hear whole songs if they keep going...
Great app, great features
This app is really good because you can take all your favorite artists and make a custom station including all the artists you put in it plus other artists that are just like it. You can also just search songs to put on a playlist and then you have only those songs to listen to. The only thing that isn't "great" is the fact that you need descent connection. If you only have a bar or 2 of 4G or 3G it stops the song and you have to wait until you have better connection to have it play again. But that isn't really a big deal for some people. This is also a great alternative to say iTunes songs that cost money.
Getting worse with new updates
I've been a pandora user for over 2 years now and it seems with every update, this app gets worse and worse stability wise and feature wise. With the new update song will randomly stop playing and when I go back into the app and press play, it won't play. I have to skip the song in order to get the app going again. This is really irritating when the song that stops playing is a favorite song. I'm also a plus member so I'm thinking about going back to free slacker is these updates keep getting worse. Let's go back when slacker was simple and you could go back to previous songs that played and like them. Your adding too many menus and slides to this small app. Fix it!
