  • Custom stations are great. Everything else is buggy

    By Argh iTunes and gimlet
    I’m a premium $10 subscriber. I don’t care about the cost. I love the custom stations. But... Why do I have to turn the stupid host off on every station? Want to hear your speakers pop every time you switch playlists, switch stations, go back a song, pause, etc? Then slacker is for you! You can’t see upcoming songs, and going back to previous songs is impossible unless you exit your station and start a station of that one song. Searching for songs isn’t always easy. It plays weird versions of songs like instrumentals, and censored versions (even though I have censors turned off) I’m still trying to like it because of custom stations, but I’m pretty close to abandoning it.

    Now it's 💩
  • What I’ve Been Looking For!!

    By fantastickkay
    The one thing I miss with streaming music these days is the lack of news updates and little personal dj touches. I thought it was a pipe dream to have news included with music streaming but somehow I found the perfect app! Not only does it have an option to include news updates, it has amazing curated stations for absolutely every mood. I have a spot in my heart for the 60s Deep Dive station. I paid for it for a while, which is great to curate your own stations, but now I use the free version which only adds adverts to my experience but I can still listen to the stations I created so it’s all the same to me!

    Still loving it after 6 years
  • Use to be great

    By NinjaPurgs
    Slacker use to be awesome, until the last several updates brought more and more ads with each one. Sometimes it's so bad that I'll only be able to listen to one song before having to listen to two more commercials. They now have implemented full pop up ads that they make you watch if you want to switch stations. They've also completely screwed over their Plus members by taking away the offline feature, and now they're expecting you to pay $10 a month to get it back. Greed has ruined yet another great app. I will be searching for a replacement.
  • It’s been better

    By SaturnIonRedline
    The app is great. It plays most of the songs I love I just have one gripe and that is; I hate them your skipping songs the app can’t keep up. So let’s say I’m listening to sorry not sorry by Demi lovado and skip a few tracks and it’s playing Nobody love by Tori Kelly the app is still playing sorry not sorry on top of nobody love. So still needs work. Other than that I love it sooooo much better than pandora.

    By no service at all
    I’ve made Slacker my default music app. I love the ‘My Favorites’ station. Evolving over time. Accumulating ‘liked’ songs, and songs of similar artist and genres. You truly create your own station. Perfect for my commute. The $25/year ad free version is a bargain compare to others I’ve tried. Give Slacker a try. I think be impressed.
  • Best UX & Alexa integration is here!

    By LAX20531
    See wish list below :) I've been a Tier 2 Premium for 5+ years because it simply is a superior offering to Sirius/XM due to the user’s ability to fully control the experience and listen to albums, create custom playlists, build stations with seeded artists, the offline capability, the Fine Tuning option (which is an awesome, under marketed feature), and the ability to disable annoying DJ's (deactivating Slacker's "Host" stops the DJ). These are features Sirius and many of Slacker’s competitors don’t offer to the same degree. Where Slacker has fallen behind is in the area of marketing and technical interfaces, one that must be rectified before it results in irreversible damage to the business as we know it. I’m happy to see they just launched an Alexa interface but it is rough and has some ways to go, but it is a start. Where Slacker excels is in the area of preprogrammed stations for those of us who don’t always want to build our own. There are quite a few niche stations I listen to that the competitors can’t match in quality and have kept me as a subscriber even after trialing the competition. The current app is intuitive but lacks documentation so expect to find hidden features by mistake. For example, dragging a playing station (full screen) to the right will reveal assignable presets (like the buttons in your car); holding down on the << or >> to rewind or FF a track (or drag the progress bar) (at least for subscribers); and the Fine Tuning option to redefine stations based on Newer/Older, Hits/B-Side, Host on/off, and Favorite tracks More/Less often. Slacker once had lyrics that disappeared with the loss of their third party source; a replacement would help their competitiveness. Issues that need fixing: —Marking a station anywhere in a category (which could be 30 stations) for Offline, Favorite, Etc. causes the confirmation message to appear, and the list to bounce to the top, losing my place. Can it hold our place? —Group Favorites by System category, or filter System Categories to reveal only those marked as Favorites. (Or custom groups). I’m reluctant to Favorite too many in the existing environment because they list/group in no particular order and become unmanageable and take too long to scroll. Or put a filter on the Favorites list. Something! —Add slide over to iPad please. —Do Preset Buttons reset with every new version? Do settings roam to other devices?
  • Update screwed up slacker app completely

    By deathlygamerg
    It will no longer even let me on to my account or even make one to listen to music anymore. Guess it’s time to move on to something that doesn’t waste my time.
  • Horrrrrrriiiibbblllllllleeeeeee 🤦🏻‍♀️

    By peach kisses
    They take away songs for some reason I don’t know why but it’s getting annoying I really don’t recommend at all.
