Slacker Radio blows onto BlackBerry Storm

Slacker's free streaming music app for BlackBerry app initially worked on the Curve and Bold, but not the touchscreen Storm. A change in the wind brings Slacker Radio

Slacker Radio on the Storm

When Slacker Radio first introduced its streaming Internet radio app for the BlackBerry, it only worked on standard BlackBerrys running version 4.3 and above. Starting Wednesday, the free app gets touchy-feely with a brand new version for the BlackBerry's touch-screen Storm.

Slacker Radio for the Storm brings with it everything we loved on the Curve and Bold, including its best feature ever, caching a song to play offline later. It also throws in some touch-screen specials, like support for landscape mode.

The app still serves U.S. customers only on the BlackBerry and iPhone.

To get it, go to from the BlackBerry browser.
