    "Irratating App"

    August 8, 2013  |   By dlbriggs

    Version: Slacker Radio for BlackBerry 3.0

    Pros

    Good if you need some nosie in the background or just want to preview various artists.

    Cons

    Won't play entire song. The Slacker App skips to the next song at random intervals.

    Summary

    I was opptimistic about this app after reviewing all it's features on paper. Turned out to be hype, can't even listen to an entire song. I have heard it's a buffering issue, although it always manages to play an entire commercial with no issues. The graphic bar also indicates no such issue on my playbook, showing the buffering well ahead of the playing.

    "SUCKS! Joined this site JUST to say that!"

    June 27, 2012  |   By prttymn

    Version: Slacker Radio for BlackBerry 3.0

    Pros

    A Pro? You can choose artists, and it's free.

    Cons

    Freezes my BlackBerry, Drains my battery to the point my phone turns off. Asks me to sign back in 4 times in 33 mins. Then refuses to play anything again. And right before I disabled it, it was playing the first 15 seconds of the next song, then skipped to the next song. HORRIBLE. FRUSTRATING.

    Summary

    Awful. I want an apology. TMobile recommended this site, and I am outraged.
    I tell everyone I can how Awful my experience was.

    "Would rate ZERO if it were an option"

    April 9, 2012  |   By tahoedee

    Version: Slacker Radio for BlackBerry 3.0

    Pros

    There is nothing positive to write about a company with deceptive business practices like this one

    Cons

    First, contrary to what their "Live Talk" Customer Service representatives tell you, when you sign up for a Trial Account you are required to enter a credit card. Then, just TRY to cancel! Good luck - there is NO place on their website to cancel. The Customer Service rep argued with me about the required credit card, then told me to call them. After being placed on hold for 30 minutes I gave up and have filed complaints with my bank regarding the fraudulent credit card charge, Better Business Bureau, and our state attorney general. Not worth the headache to deal with a company who refuses to place a "cancel my account" button on their website.

    Summary

    Don't do it!!

    "Before update, great, after update, not so much"

    August 9, 2011  |   By Zingzap

    Version: Slacker Radio for BlackBerry 3.0

    Pros

    It's free, when it works there's a decent variety.

    Cons

    Since the update it will only play one song before it goes into an eternal buffering that locks up my phone.

    Summary

    Until the issues are fixed, skip it.

    "Not what it appears to be........"

    February 6, 2011  |   By TencU

    Version: Slacker Radio for BlackBerry 3.0

    Pros

    Plays and displays artist's name and album details well

    Cons

    Slacker has a habit of playing approximately 4 minutes of a song. Longer songs are just truncated and all of a sudden you're listening to what's next in their cue.

    Summary

    This product is aimed at teeny boppers and people with AM-radio sensibility and short attention spans. For serious listening, go with Pandora or load mp3 files onto your card. Even the free version of Pandora has never failed me. Slacker I have deleted. Can't imagine what they were thinking.

    "Frustrating"

    January 27, 2011  |   By taylor_max

    Version: Slacker Radio for BlackBerry 3.0

    Pros

    Decent music, when it functions properly.

    Cons

    Crashes often, frequently plays two songs simultaneously, not very good security.

    Summary

    It's true - it crashes all the time! Continuously crashing, frequently plays two songs at once, I've had my account hacked into several times, freezes phone, etc. Basically, there are several technical issues that are pervasive, and I am quite surprised that these issues have not been addressed. I would not recommend this to anyone, but with that said, I think it has great potential.

    "Not worth it"

    October 12, 2010  |   By colna

    Version: Slacker Radio for BlackBerry 3.0

    Pros

    Not much. Some good songs.

    Cons

    Stalls all of the time and often crashes.

    Summary

    One stream I was searching for wound up turning off my screen and throwing my Blackberry into a reboot. When I got the Blackberry back up, I deleted Slacker. It's a piece of trash that is not worth the effort to download it - or use it!!
