It's no slouch

Stream music from preprogrammed genres and stations, or from stations you set up yourself online.

As with Slacker Radio on other mobile platforms, the Android app lets you stream music from preprogrammed genres and stations, or from stations you set up yourself online. You'll be able to view album art and bios, block a song or vote it a favorite, and skip ahead--this is limited in the free version and limitless in the premium upgrade. If you like what you hear, you can share a link to that station on SlackerRadio.com via e-mail, SMS, or MMS.

Upgrading to the premium Radio Plus subscription service brings you song lyrics in addition to those unlimited skips and no ads.

Slacker Radio on Android makes one feature unique: the Now Playing home screen widget that shows you what's playing now. The widget, which you install by giving the home screen a long press and selecting Slacker Radio from the Widgets list, is embedded with pause, skip, favorite, and blocking controls. However, it currently lacks the capability to change stations.
