Doesn't start playing music once paused for a long time

The app has a bug that doesnt allow it to play music again after it has been paused for a while. It also becomes unresponsive as well.




Platform: PC

ads play audio over the music

I really like slacker, and I don't mind the commercials for non-paying customers, but in this version of their app the ads play audio right in the middle of the songs. It's obviously a bug because the audio cuts out before it's finished, but it makes the app unusable, unfortunately.

Good when it works

I am about to delete this app from my computer. The app for cellphone works much better, and so does their browser based radio. This app freezes, quits playing in the middle of songs, and just generally refuses to play nice. The computer I am using is top notch, so it is definitely a programming issue on their end. I love slacker, but avoid this app.

I can only use the web site. Ever since I upgraded to the anniversary edition of Windows 10 the app won't work. I ended up getting a new computer and the app did the same thing on this that the one prior had. I really like the service, but this app needs some fixing. I spoke with customer support a month or so ago about it, but didn't get a resolution.

Log in doesn't work

I try logging in, but there is no confirmation of logon. It still shows the "Join Now" and "Log In" buttons. Also it still shows that annoying AD on the top of the application. I did not pay subscription to see AD's!

Eats all your memory!

Pause does not work, or really resume does not. Apparently having an adblocker stops commercials, which by itself is hilarious. Eats memory like its candy. Either fix or remove from store, its been like this for ages.

Breaks if you log into your account

+ it's basically the website version + allows you to use media controls on your keyboard (forward, pause, play, etc) if your KB supports it - little buggy as of the current version. You can log in, but it won't let you make changes to your account. The page appears as though you're not logged in, but it has all your music preferences saved and the "favorites" station works. All that is great and all IF it would let you use the app after logging in. So, if you log into the app with your Slacker account, close the app, and reopen the app, you'll be faced with and endless loadscreen saying "Tuning." I've tried restarting the app multiple times, restarting the computer and re-installing the app. The same issue occurs after logging into your Slacker account.
