Slacker Radio for BlackBerry hits a million downloads

Comments

Slacker Radio Plus

Slacker Radio has enjoyed great success on BlackBerry and recently they’re hit their 1 millionth download. Slacker is killing the competition too:

* Slacker Radio offers 2+ Million tracks – 4 times as many as Pandora
* Slacker Radio offers stereo audio – Pandora only offers mono (single channel)
* Slacker Radio offers station caching so you can listen to radio even when you don’t have a signal

This is a great app, although it does have a few drawbacks. For example, the fact that it must be plugged into a PC in order to sync really hurts the functionality. I get really bothered when I have to sync things via my PC and I would love to have OTA syncing capabilities. Soon, I hope.

Here is a quick breakdown of features you get with Slacker:

* High-quality stereo playback from all streaming wireless connections (including Wi-Fi) and cached stations
* Station caching – play music even without a network connection
* Free music library featuring millions of songs from thousands of artists
* Over 100 professionally programmed genre stations
* Create custom stations by searching for artists or song titles
* View song lyrics
* Bluetooth support
* Multi-tasking – listen to music while doing email
* View artist biographies and photos
* View album art and reviews
* “Peek Ahead” artist and album preview
* Pause and skip songs
* Rate songs as favorites
* Ban songs and artists you don’t like

Download Slacker Radio for your BlackBerry.

Remember, you need OS 4.3+ and 500MB of free memory on your device for station caching.

Here was the winning comment:

Some people are like slinkies…they are not really good for anything, but they sure bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs. I prefer some Slacker music while I watch it.

Congratulations Brian!
