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 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!

    "Unfortunately, Slacker Personal Radio is currently only available in the United States." — I really hate this kind of services. Good luck for the rest and kudos for the contest

  • @KaitNOBOlyn

    I listen to Slacker Radio every day on my Blackberry. I can always find my favorite songs instantly when I'm in a Wifi hotspot, and the cache feature allows me to listen to around 20 of my favorite stations anytime I want. Additionally, one can always see Slacker Radio as a tab on my web browser. The free account would be really useful to me. Select me please!

  • Droid503

    Nice. Slacker Radio sounds pretty cool. 1 year subscription even better…

  • Bernal

    Never used them before, but I just set it up on my Moment and other than the occasional stutter that all streaming radio apps have, it's working well. Slacker's sound quality is better than

    Also… they have a setting that will allow the screen to stay on while connected to a power source. I've wondered why these ad supported streaming radio apps haven't done this before. It's nice to be able to glance over and see what's playing and to like or ban a song without having to power on the screen.

  • Rod

    This is rad. I'm downloading it right now!

  • @bellewitch

    Tomorrow's my birthday so it would be GREAT to get free slacker service for a year to go with the android phone that I'd like to purchase in the future!!!

  • Charles Duffy

    I've been an occasional Slacker user (never before with a Pro account); with an Android app available, I'll doubtless be making much more consistent use.

  • D Gifford

    HECKYES! double your Slacker double your Fun!

  • Jackson H

    Yes, I want this.

  • Mike

    Count me in.

  • RoosterCogburn

  • Re_

    Does this cache content locally? I can't seem to find the option. 3G reception at my gym is rather spotty.

  • @cliftondc

    I'm using it… works great! Slacker's awesome!
