Freezes a lot

To slow, takes forever to load anything and it would force close. Pandora is 1000x better. Uninstalled.

The caching is the best feature. Well worth the price for Plus. Seasonal stations should be all year. Halloween rocks


by Eddie on Oct 16, 2010 1:21 PM

Not better then Pandora. Really slow and wayyyyy too many commercials. 1 every 3 songs is ridiculous. Sprint Hero CM6


by Ryan on Oct 16, 2010 10:57 AM

When it did play, horrible commercials ALL the time, now it doesn't even play music. Get Pandora, or something else instead.

Charges a monthly subscription.

After it opens it plays but I can't pull it up (open it to change channel) so I have to FC.

Paid version still has slacker ads. Not worth the monthly charge. Maybe 4$ a year but not per month

Widget not working properly


by Jeremy on Oct 14, 2010 7:59 AM

This app was great on my hero. On the Evo, there's no support and it constantly freezes up, crashes, opens on its own, and drains the battery.


by David on Oct 14, 2010 7:57 AM

I will not pay a monthly$3.99 fee added to my phone bill. I will give 5 stars if you had a yearly fee.


by Omar on Oct 13, 2010 2:35 PM

Doesn't skip or freeze like Pandora the Dora


by jen on Oct 13, 2010 11:54 AM

This station ROCKS!!! So much better than pandora. Has pre loaded channels. Great app......


by Jeffrey on Oct 13, 2010 6:53 AM

The ability to cache stations for no-signal situations ie airplane mode is awesome.


by Viren on Oct 13, 2010 2:11 AM

I agree with many other reviews, pandora is much better. I am waiting for my subscription to expire so i can support pandora. Program crashes alot.


by Deverick on Oct 12, 2010 6:16 PM

All this had going for it was station caching. Caching was free when I had this on blackberry but they want 3.99 a month on android. Uninstalled.


by j on Oct 12, 2010 1:13 PM

Too many radio commercials, app locks up and force closes, songs take way too long to load, not sure why someone would buy with these problems


by Daniel on Oct 12, 2010 1:06 PM

Played only one song on the Google phone and stopped playing. Defective. Worked on the blackberry storm. Needs an upgrade for Google HTC phone.


by Tim on Oct 12, 2010 9:18 AM

I can log in but that's about it. Playback errors are constant making an unpleasant listening experience. Evo 3G.


by rita on Oct 11, 2010 9:01 PM

How do you uninstall?


by Max on Oct 10, 2010 8:23 PM

Excellent music selection.


by Brian on Oct 10, 2010 1:08 PM

Randomly skips at its own whim. Wastes my skips. Too many ads and to many quit buttons! Back to Pandora!!!


by Max on Oct 10, 2010 5:05 AM

Great app!!


by Julian on Oct 10, 2010 3:55 AM

Excellent apps, especially with premium account


by Jesse on Oct 9, 2010 9:05 PM

Thank you for adding that third Tony Iommi album. SLACKER FKICNUG ROCKS!!!


by Kyra on Oct 9, 2010 1:30 PM

Music is good but the back to back, long @$$ ads are annoying! Going back to Pandora!


by Bill on Oct 9, 2010 9:21 AM
