• 5/5. This is an amazing alternative to the popular music streaming service Pandora. The pre-made stations are amazing and diverse. User made artist stations are spot on. I highly recommend this app! — App Store User on 8/13/2013

Customer Reviews

I don't know where to start.

I have never been this happy with a purchase in my life. Forget buying music, forget piracy, forget Pandora. The premium version of this app combines all the best things about each of the above, with none of the cons. I make it my mission to convert my friends to Slacker, because I believe it's the most positive change they could possibly make to their recreational routine. Rarely have I failed to find an artist on Slacker, and I have never found it wanting in the features department. Buy this now.


My son told me about this app; and I sent him a text message yesterday telling him Good Call. I have enjoyed using it every day since I downloaded it.
Being honest though I do think the fee for upgraded version is too steep. I'm not cheap, but seems like Apple could pay the fee as I buy songs in app; especially since I am a loyal Apple customer which spends a good deal of money with them. I think a yearly fee of $4.99 would suffice; not $9.99 a month. Way too much. Too many ways to listen to music for a fee that high.


I don't think I've ever discovered as much cool, new music with any online radio type program. For a while, Pandora set the bar but this app is awesome! I love the My Vibe feature because whoever is making the playlists really understands how to make playlists that can fit any mood! My new favorite radio app should be used by everyone! Great job by the developers on making a way better app than Pandora in my opinion.
