It's been a long time since we've written about Slacker Radio. More than a year, in fact. Maybe time goes slower at Slacker than it does in other parts of the universe. It would seem so, as almost 4 years after stating the intention to add a sleep timer to the Android app, it's finally happened. Read More
Slacker Radio's developers are no slackers when it comes to reinventing the app and redesigning it. Over the last three years, they've gone through one and then two major redesigns, and now they're ready for the third along with a major update to their audio catalogue. Read More
You start with a song. Ten seconds in, you decide that this one isn't your style. You give it a thumbs down, and the track goes away. Another song begins. You love it, and give it a thumbs up. You don't particularly like or dislike the next one, but you give a few of the songs after more approval. Then you create another station, and you start the process again. Read More
Today, there's no shortage of ways to stream music from your smartphone or tablet. Apps like Pandora and Google Play Music make easy work of offering access to a plethora of tunes, but if you want the best experience either has to offer, you have to hand over a monthly fee. PlayTime Internet Radio from Handy Apps is a new app that brings access to over 50,000 internet radio stations to your mobile, completely free of charge.
The app is broken down into several primary categories, including music, news, sports, and talk radio. From there, each category offers several different options, all of which are readily available online for free. Read More
You've probably heard of TuneIn. It's that app that some kids these days think of as the radio (not to be confused with the static that old people are still able to get their cars to produce). TuneIn lets you stream stations from all over the world, regardless of how far outside of their coverage area you may be.
Now the company is rolling out TuneIn Premium for $7.99 a month. For your money, you get access to over 40,000 audiobooks. You know, because paying for novels individually has apparently become old-school.
TuneIn Premium also comes with over 600 commercial-free music stations. Read More
Today Rdio announced a new subscription plan that serves as a more affordable option for listeners who want to get rid of ads but don't want to pay $9.99 a month. With Rdio Select, folks can do so for just $3.99 instead.
What's the catch? Rdio Select gives you up to twenty-five songs at a time to carry around on your devices. You can keep them for as long as you're subscribed, but you need to remove songs once you're ready to add more. You can replace all twenty-five once per day. If this sounds bothersome, you're going to have to make the leap to Rdio Unlimited. Read More
Slacker isn't a music streaming service. Okay, it is, but it has a twist. Okay, I know, they all have twists. But Slacker isn't just about loading tracks. Think of it as Internet radio. Pandora? No, no, it's nothing like that. Users create and customize their own stations, then—okay, I see what you're getting at. Let's start over.
Slacker is a music streaming service, one of the many available in the Play Store. Today it's sporting a new look.
The company has provided a redesigned app with a tweaked interface that's intended to point you towards better recommendations. For starters, there's a "Today on Slacker" feed that highlights artists, albums, and stations that you might like. Read More
