Was great, now non-functional
This was the only music service that I could actually use on my surface. It would play with the screen locked, the ads were unobtrusive, the music great and DJs entertaining. Now, I am being told that I can no longer use the app without a paid account. I have been a user since 2008 and have enjoyed all the changes that have come about over the years and across many platforms, but this is seriously damaging. Please, re-allow free users to use the app. It allows for a much nicer experience (even with ads) over the browser web-app. With streaming services being a dime-a-dozen these days, I'd think the dev team would be looking to add features and functionality, rather than strip them.More
Was supported for free streaming, but no longer
Now everyone needs to pay to listen with this application. Uninstalled and moving my stations to iHeart Radio! Cheers!More
Glad they made an app...
it'd be better if they got on par with Pandora One's app though. This app leaves a lot to be desired seemingly even by it's own standards. Where is the fine tune option and why are so many other website options not accessible solely from the app? Why does the app need to be restarted when paused for a period of time? I really hope this app half-assedry trend makes a really big turnaround soon for the better on Windows.More
Slacker Radio is good to have. Microsoft is on longer having slacker radio on it's site. :-( :-( :-( :-(More
Need To Update Interface
I have been a paid subscriber to Slacker Radio for 5 years and even though this is a great app, The interface is like 2 years old. There have been two revamps of the interface since this was the current design. I thought that maybe Slacker would have released an update for Windows 10, however this looks straight out of Windows 8.1 . Please update the UI of the app.More
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.More
Great relaxing music. Works just the way I want it to! Just needs to add a fine tune function!More
How do you download offline content?
For the most part this is good except for one big omission. I have the premium subscription which allows downloading songs, playlists and stations, but I can't see any way to do this on the app. Without this it's just an online radio service. Am I missing this or does it need to be added? With that (or easier instructions on how if you can) it would be 5 stars.More
Runs very well tons of great stations
A great app on windows 8.1. Slacker delivers very clear music on customizable radio stations. The fast interface is very easy to use with the touch screen.More
What a great station, I am an old country music fan George Jones , Ray Price, Eddy Arnold ,Etc...All I have to do is click on the singer I want to hear and there it is ,How much easier could it possibly be ??The only bad part is that you CANNOT look up an individual artist , unless their name is on a list .More
