Slacker Radio Arrives on Android - We Celebrate With a Contest!

slacker_on_verizon_droidSlacker, Inc. announced today that their Slacker Radio app is now available for Android handsets.  Music lovers can get the free application immediately by visiting Slacker.com from an Android phone or by downloading it from the Android Market.  Those of you grabbing a DROID this weekend will be able to find the free Slacker Radio app via the Verizon channel of the Android Market on the phone.

Slacker provides a nearly unlimited number of custom stations including over 100 expert-programmed channels, seasonal,  and spotlight stations!  On top of all that, they already offer stations to over 10,000 artists.  One of Slacker’s features is that it gives listeners artist biographies, album reviews, station fine tuning, “peek ahead” song previews and song lyrics. Similar to other personalized radio stations, Slacker listeners can favorite songs.  Unlike most though, users can also ban songs and artists.  This helps create that perfect radio station where every song elicits an “I LOVE THIS SONG!”.

The flexibility of Android allows the app to run in the background so users can go about their other business. Oh yeah, they also have a neat little widget on the desktop so you can control your station too.

In honor of today’s announcement, we’re going to be giving away a 1-year subscription of Slacker Radio Plus to 3 lucky winners! How do you enter?  Just leave a comment below with something simple.  We know you love the simple “I’m In!” stuff so that works.  We’ll run this through the weekend and randomly draw the names on Sunday, November 8th.

Winner will be required to create a free Slacker account and provide us with the email address used.

Good Luck!

    This is the one app i have been waiting for since moving from my ipod… Pandora doesn't hold a candle to Slacker… THANK YOU SLACKER!!!

    Looking forward to seeing how this compares to Pandora, Last.fm, and the like.

    Though ultimately what I *really* want is an idiot-proof way to stream my huge, unwieldy iTunes library to my Android device (if Simplify Media can't come through with an Android app, I have to imagine someone else can).

    I wouldn't mind winning a subscription; I don't have a radio in my car anymore, (or heat, haha!) so I use my phone for a radio.
