Slacker radio

I absolutely love this app I have been using it ever since my dad got a Blue-Ray player, I saw the app on their he didn't know what is was at first but then I decided to look it up on my iPod what slacker radio was like, I downloaded the app, created an account and ever since I have enjoyed todays latest hits rock songs, etc. I really wish you guys over at Microsoft Co. would update this application because I would love to use it and I also love being up to date, and thanks for finlly bringing this app to the Microsoft app store.

Don't bother

Constantly loses internet connection and they play the exact same songs all day every day, worst app ever.

Good music app, here's how to sign in

It's ridiculous that they don't have you sign into slacker if you have an account right away. To sign into your slacker account to get your favorite stations: start playing a station, then hit the "Upgrade to see up next artist" button, now you can SIGN IN. How hard is it to add an obvious sign in link? I don't know, but other than that, this app is great for listening to some streaming music on your Windows 8/8.1 device.

Need Xbox One App

Need live tile!! I like Slacker a lot better than Pandora!!! Slacker actually mixes it up, Pandora seems to add in very few different songs. Really wish there was an Xbox One app! I use Pandora on my Xbox One through my awesome surround sound setup and just need Slacker to make it a little better!!!!

Rock and/or Roll!

What's not to like. Great music, although compressed.

Internet connection not working

I'm just opened the application and it says "unable retrieve content, please check internet connection" , but at this point I'm writing review so I have the internet connection :)

it would be

it would be good, if some tracks won't repeat themselves often like it did few times to me.

Slacker Rocks

I lover Slacker radio, have been using it for years. I really enjoy the countdown lists they have. Keep up the good work. App could use a refresh however.
