Don't bother 1/5
Slacker is very intent on making you buy their app. If use try the free app, they constantly play ads over the top of the station. Don't bother with support either. Their answer is "it happens". This time around their tech asked me to solve it for them. What exact ad? What station? What song was playing? Top of screen, middle or bottom? Were you holding your phone? When is the last time you rebooted? What ios? How many kids do you have? What's your favorite color?
They obviously don't care about their customer base. I recommend I-heart-radio.
Slacker has come a long way! 5/5
I'll never know why Slacker never comes up in the same conversation with Pandora and Spotify. Slacker offers the best of both with better stations and countdowns. I have always been happy with Slacker Radio. Start off with Plus if you are a new user. You will be hooked in no time.
love it!! Update: Bodyweight Ad ANNOYING 2/5
Update: Since the latest update, there's a SUPER annoying advertisement for body weight/intense exercises. The video ad/music is annoying & interferes with the music. More stars when fixed.
It's got a great selection of songs, LOVE all the different genres!
Better w time 5/5
By Lucas mikey
This is an app that has gotten better over time. I think it is a great value w the option to listen off line.
Love it 5/5
I love Slacker Radio! I'm not sure what I'll be doing without my Today's Hit music😘💋😘
I did my research between Spotify, Pandora, iHeart Radio, and this one. Pound-for-pound, Slacker provides the best service for my family, friends, and myself. We utilize Slacker on so many devices to enjoy various musical genres. A lot of my co-workers swear up by Spotify; and that's fine. When I play certain songs, set-up various playlist, Slacker is what runs through my Verizon devices and tablets!!
Lots of fun variety! Only speed bump is it stops occasionally and you have to back out of app and reload and try again to push play. So need to work on interruptions in service. I really enjoy listening to it for hours!
The best update yet by Slacker! And I was thinking about jumping to Pandora based off of where u can use like cars, tv and such without having to use a smart phone... But I think I'll stick around for awhile longer. Great job!
Update: and now with a sleep timer! Nice!!
Who doesn't love music??!! Slacker Radio is like having a personal DJ in your pocket!! 5/5
I have been streaming music from the Slacker Radio application for almost 2 and a half years, and I enjoy it a lot. Music from Slacker Radio is organized so we can listen to what we want to hear. Additionally, we all have the ability to create are own custom stations. Custom stations to play music from our favorite artist! Furthermore, I recommend everyone give it a try. This application deserves nothing less than a 5 star rating. My favorite feature is the music news updates from station host (thanks for the updates Red and Party Ben).
Canceling Sirius for Slacker 5/5
I have been paying for satellite radio for several years but only really listen to about 4-5 stations. Slacker easily replaces it and with just as great a variety.
Only issue i noticed is it is sometimes a little choppy during songs, maybe 2-3 times per hour.
Love this app. 5/5
This app is fantastic I really can't believe that it is free. Thanks and much love to the makers of Slacker radio.
Love, love, love 5/5
Favorite streaming app to date!
Great potential but lives up to it's name in follow-through 2/5
- You can ban all of your un-favorite artists and songs! (best feature of Accuradio). Now, if only they had a "ban album" button for the "bad hair" years!
- "Fine Tune" the time machine, scratch the hits and delve deep beyond the overplayola zone (best feature of SiriusXM radio) and this even works most of the time.
- Some artist catalogs contain tracks unavailable on Spotify and itunes.
- Tune the artist discovery bar to tune in and turn on to new you musical dimensions (skip, skip, skip), which brings me to the...
- The artist discovery feature is where "Slacker" truly lives up to its name. Try before you buy because you will need UNLIMITED skips and will likely want all the premium features.
- Sound quality even at best bit-rate often sounds like ripped from youtube (Audiophiles stick w Spotify!)
- Present support incompatibility with dj and playlist apps (if your into that sorta thing)
- No free trial offer so I can only report on what the $3.99 radio app has to offer, which is at least better than iheart, itunes, Spotify and Pandora in the radio feature department.
Best internet radio 5/5
I've been using the premium service for a few years now and I absolutely love it.
Lost hope already ..Slow server 1/5
Cancelled my Subscription because it always buffers for whatever reason while my Spotify (Highest 320 setting)& iHeart Radio is steaming flawless.
On iPhone 7 buffering all time wifi or 4lte 3/5
Needs to be fixed seems I'm not only ones with slacker on iOS
Great Music App 5/5
Used Pandora a lot back then until I heard of Slacker. I like how they have multiple categories and there's plenty of variety. It's pretty cool how you can also select to hear news in between songs. Love the app!

Slacker as a lot of the old hits and I'm lovin it
A few problems 2/5
By Starr Lewis
So, i had to change my review to 4 stars to 2. There's a few more problems that have been happening. I've used this app since 2013 and it worked fine, but now every time i use this app, it'll just randomly close after i've used it for about 20-40 minutes and it's very frustrating. Also, like in my last review, i'll ban a song and it'll still show up even though it tells me it no longer will. If this could be fixed i'd very much appreciate that because i really do like this app, it's the only radio app that suits me and i've been a long time user of it. Thank you.
Best Music App!! 5/5
Best music app out there, I love it!!!
Best by far 5/5
Slacker radio is by far the best streaming music service I have ever used. I use it at home, work and in the car. The best by far!
Great Music App 5/5
Stations are awesome. I used to have several hundred CD's but never knew what I had or what to listen to. Slacker takes care of all that with fun stations created by people. HIGHLY recommend for anyone who enjoys music.
Love it 5/5
Use this app everyday. Different stations and genre. Quick. Easy. Will always use this.
Slacker is great! 5/5
I love this app!
What's pandora 5/5
It's all about slacker😇🔮
It really helps the work day go by so much faster love it !!
Best Music Streaming App 5/5
Hands down the best music streaming app. The stations can't be beat and the ability to make playlists and listen songs and albums on demand is wonderful. I have no problem paying $10 a month for access to basically every album. The speciality stations are great as well. The app interface is also very slick.
Edit 6/29/17: Still the best streaming service on the planet IMHO. Their stations keep getting better and so does the app.
Excellent selections, UI 5/5
Slacker user interface and music "curation" much better than Pandora. I pay for RadioPlus, download stations for offline listening. DNA Stations are fun.
Used to be great 1/5
Now I can't even start a new raioneverything now said its premium
Slacker radio 2/5
I changed my rating from 5 to 2. I use to Love slacker radio and use to listen all the time. Now on my iPhone it keeps pausing after 2 or 3 songs because it is buffering on wifi and using data or i think it needs to run a commercial but just stops, if I push skip song it will run a commercial and still not play. I have to Change stations go get it to play. Very frustrating!!!! I listen on my laptop it works fine. It just did again....
Good, reliable, but slightly confusing to use 4/5
The app works well but I find myself tapping several places trying to navigate. And I still haven't figured out how to access basic metadata about songs. Want to know what year the playing song was originally released? Tap the art. No... tap the ellipsis. No... maybe tap the little funny shaped thing...? Hmm...
Same issue i love the music variety it is a 5 star app by far if it didn't close out out of nowhere on wifi
App turns off. 3/5
It's a great app to use especially when it was partnered with Samsung milk. Now that o switched to iPhone, experiencing issues with it. The app will stop playing music and buffer for no reason. While connected to wifi, it just closes. If this bug was fixed, it would receive 5 stars till then only 3.
The Best Streaming Music App 5/5
Title says it all. What separates Slacker from the others is its hundreds of genre-specific radio stations, all of which can be fine- tuned to be more to your liking. Plus, you can build your own stations and select whether Slacker will find other songs and bands that are similar to what you selected. Slacker's algorithm for doing that is the best. If you want to hear stuff you've never heard before but wind up loving Slacker is the app to do it.
I love slacker radio!!
Slacker is the best! 5/5
Just listening to the album of the week, and thinking about how much I love Slacker. I can't believe It isn't more popular, because it truly is the best music streaming app. The widget on the lock screen is a stroke of genius! I love listening to my own Slacker stations, and I have recently been enjoying the Artist DNA, Weekly Alternative Countdown, and other specials. Slacker's original programs are just awesome! It's so refreshing to hear real people talking about the bands and music, instead of an algorithm choosing songs with no human touch.

This app is amazing slacker primmiem is awesome
Still buggy when casting with Chromecast
So close. So very close. 3/5
By The Big R Man
I really like radio features in music apps—get a great mix of my favorite music and discover some new stuff. Spotify was really really awful at that so that's why I cancelled my subscription and switched to Slacker. Slacker is really great except for one thing: it freezes and gets hung up a real, real lot—enough times every day that it really becomes a distraction. Whether I'm using my phone app or using my computer it always gets screwy. Quite unfortunate because this has the potential to be the bell of the ball!
Stays on track!! 5/5
Slacker stays on track unlike other online radio apps! If you like Punk they don't play Madonna and Michael Jackson. Punk punk and more punk!
P.S. also works with old country / southern rock / even Christmas music!!!!!!!
I ❤️ Slacker 5/5
THE BEST music app/ internet radio!
Love the app but.... Slacker needs to work on this 4/5
I love listening to Slacker and pay for the premium plan. If anybody from Slacker is reading this. Please expand the number of stations that I can save for offline listening
Works as advertised! 5/5
For me, it's exactly what I like and works great!
Best Collection of Sounds on Net 5/5
Been a slacker from undergrad, grad school, to corporate America. Low data usage compared to other apps. Great selection. Indie electronic channel is second to known. Comedy is pretty good. ABC news and ESPN can be repetitive, but delivers what it's suppose to overall. I hear tracks on slacker well before mainstream media kills them. 👊🏾 good job Slacker on the UI as well.
Better than Pandora 5/5
When it comes to music, Slacker is my number one.
Great app 5/5
Awesome I recommend that you sign up
LOVE Slacker!! 5/5
Great app!! So much better than Pandora. Good stations and I love being able to make personalized playlists. So easy to use. Paid version is more than worth the few dollars per month it costs. Just have one HUGE suggestion!! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, go international!! I travel to the Caribbean several times per year and can't access my playlists!
50's and 60's music! 5/5
I love listening to all my favorite oldies!!
No equalizer 2/5
Why dont you have an equalizer in this app like spotify and apple music has? Also add a alarm clock too.
