Editors' Review

Slacker Radio for Android provides high-quality music streaming with a neatly designed and fast program that offers amazing tools to make the most of your experience. This application sometimes has display errors, but its overall quality is superb, making it one of the top competitors in its category.

Pros

Smart tools: One of the best features of Slacker Radio for Android is the unique "My Vibe" tool that suggests music to fit your mood or setting, and the fine tuning options help provide content based on popularity or obscurity. This application is also integrated with services like Facebook and Ford SYNC to help ease music listening.

Variety of sources: This application is sure to please whoever uses it because of the large amount of stations and music genres that it supports, offering content ranging from public radio to Univision. Each category has multiple stations, so you will always find enjoyable music.

Excellent performance: From initial installation to streaming your first song takes only a few seconds due to the fast speed of Slacker Radio. Music and videos played smoothly with high-quality sound during our tests.

Cons

Display errors: We sometimes noticed that the Play and Pause buttons would switch places, causing us to become confused. At other times, the album art for the previous song would remain onscreen after the next had loaded.

Bottom Line

Slacker Radio for Android will definitely exceed all of your expectations because of its high-powered abilities. We'd love if a lyrics tool, similar to Shazam's, were added to Slacker Radio because it would make for a more engaging experience. If you like music or any form of radio, then you will be impressed with Slacker Radio for Android.
