Monday Giveaway: 10 FREE SLACKER RADIO PLUS SUBSCRIPTIONS

340 Comments

Mondays suck. Like gravity and Godwin’s Law, it is an immutable force of nature. So with the help of our friends over at Slacker, we thought we’d try to make your Monday a little better by giving away free stuff.

BlackBerry Cool Power User Nan Palmero is a big fan of Slacker, the streaming radio application for BlackBerry and desktop (check out Nan’s Slacker impressions). Always the enterprising sort, Nan was able to convince the kind team at Slacker to give BlackBerry Cool 10 FREE ONE MONTH SUBSCRIPTIONS for SLACKER’S ‘RADIO PLUS’ PREMIUM ACCOUNTS. Here’s how you can get one:

    - You have to be based in the U.S. (sorry, my fellow Canucks)
    - You must have a valid email address already configured with Slacker (i.e. the email address you signed up to slacker with). If you haven’t tried Slacker yet, download the free trial now!
    - Post a comment on this post telling us about your favorite aspect of Slacker, what improvements you’d like to see, and when/where you listen to Slacker on your BlackBerry.
    - We’ll draw the 10 winners randomly at 2pm EST tomorrow, so make sure you post right away!

While you’re posting, make sure you write a thank you to everyone at Slacker and FortyThree PR. If we’re lucky, maybe we can get some more premium accounts from them.

    I love Slacker and the cache feature is the best. I listen everywhere I go home, work, and I work in the cell phone industry and when I sale a blackberry I tell my customers to check out Slacker. I love the stations that Slackers provided so the only improvement I see at this time is more stations. Keep the music coming, Thanks Slacker.

    I love the fact that the program allows you to “create” you own station baesed on a band you like. Also the ablity to have it stream over 3g, wifi, or just cached memory really puts it above other similer programs.

    I love being able to take custom stations everywhere I go. I love my slacker portable player and its plus subscription, and would love to be able to give a subscription to my wife too.

    So i first heard about Slacker through this website and although i had tried other internet radio programs, Pandora and such i figured i’d give Slacker a try. WOW!! not only am I hooked, i got the other folks i work with hooked as well. I listen to it on my BB Bold and so do the other folks that have Bolds as well(5 in all). Here’s the BEST part…i’m an At&t Store Manager and have downloaded Slacker on ALL 4 Bolds on display and play different stations at once…customers love it and they LOVE the interface as well!!!(That’s MY favorite part)! Even installed it for my wife on her iPhone!

    I love the slacker app for blackberry! I admit I downloaded the one someone posted about for the Storm. It works fine except for when using the speaker you have to adjust the volume in order to hear the song that has been streaming for five seconds already. It works fine when you plug in headphones though. But when you plug in head phones it automatically goes to the next song. Interesting little bugs is all. They haven’t stopped me from using the app. I love the fact that I can cache my stations to my 8GB media card. I still have room for like 30 more stations which I don’t think I will ever fill. I’ve mostly used the app when I’m rendering video or creating a DVD image on my computer and can’t stream music reliably. Thanks Slacker! Keep up the good work. I can’t wait for the official release for the Storm!

    Killer App of the year… or at least tied for 1st. Caching is the way to go, even though it would stream fine in my cubicle. The subway makes caching a must. I would like to see a bit more speed in response time, though. Working with the pull-downs seem to lag a bit. And one other option I’d like to see is the ability to shuffle BETWEEN cached stations. I could probably spend a lot of time customizing and skipping, banning, etc… but a Cache Shuffle would be a blast.

    - what people are listening to page
    - more statistics and deeper ranking system
    - thumbs up/thumbs down (or similar)
    - auto update option

    Love Slacker. Love that they had the smarts to provide a cache option. Too many Blackberry apps forget that we are often outside of radio range.

    I like the station cacheing and I wish it was fully supported on the Storm at this time. I use when I want a change of pace.

    I love slacker because it is essentially helping me to get away from having to carry an ipod.

    I listen mostly in the car.

    Improvements: Every once in a while a song pops up in a station that absolutely does not belong there. i.e a country song in a rap station.

    I use Slacker on my commute in to work.
    Its great because it picks up where satellite normally wouldn’t.
    Plus I don’t need to carry anything but my blackberry to get all the different stations.
    If I had any features for the future in mind, I’d post but so far Slacker is perfect in what it does.
    Keep up the great work and thanks BBCool and FortyThree PR!!

    I love being able to see the next song coming up. If I know I’m not going to like it, I can just browse over to a different station. I’d love to be able to try a premium account. Would love to see if I could replace my home XM subscription with Slacker. Thanks everyone.

    I get sick and tired of all the slick/cool applications being for the iphone.
    Slacker is definitely slick and cool. It is far better at streaming that the default streaming application on my curve. Great job Slacker.
    I just downloaded it as few minutes ago. Sweet.

    I love Slacker! I knew nothing about it until the BlackBerry client was released. Now I’m hooked. You guys did a great job with the BlackBerry client. My biggest wish right now (and gripe) is the volume. The lowest setting is still TOO LOUD! I work in a very quiet environment, and the lowest setting is just too loud for me. Please… please… please… make the lowest setting lower. The highest setting is freakin deafening, so you should have room to shift the scale a little.

    I love the caching feature as well as the ability to mark your favorites and have them played more often. It would also be nice to be able to go back to the previous song and replay it or at least find-out who it was. I mainly listen to the Christian station under Spiritual, so thank you for that station! I’m a software developer, and I listen to Slacker while I write code at work. :-)
