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.

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!

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.

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.

Station tiles do not work in Win 10

The pin to start feature for a station creates a tile, but the tile only takes you to the home screen of the app. You then have to navigate to the station and click play - same as if you just used the app tile. Worked in all the Win 10 preview versions but broke in the release.

Rough on windows 10

Great app have been listening to slacker for some time now but it craps out after two to three songs and has to be restarted on windows 10 which has made me start using my browser again to listen to slacker. I hope an update comes out to make it more stable on windows 10 :-)

Wow, Nice 8.1 Design...Too Bad This is Windows 10

Uh...Slacker? You need to update this app. Seriously, it's an embarrassment. I've been a user since the very beginning and the app works great as does the service, but this app is well out of current design, clearly with tablets in mind. News flash, I'm on a laptop right now, which is not a tablet. Really, really, really need to update.

Great Music

I like that I can play smooth jazz from different radio stations. I don't like it when it's buffering in the middle of a song.
