  • Better than Pandora Apr 3, 2019

    By Brent Willingham
    Slacker Radio is the answer to Pandora’s increasingly bad service. Like Pandora, Slacker Radio allows you to create custom radio stations with the ability to tell the station that you either like the current playing song or that you never want to play the current playing song again. However, Slacker Radio is better at this kind of service because it allows you to listen to original recordings that are not censored and it has better quality audio. I have tried Pandora and even paid a monthly subscription, but Pandora does not play original uncensored recordings despite the fact that I turned on explicit content. Perhaps some priggish Pandora users somehow caused Pandora to ban all explicit content? Or perhaps Pandora’s algorithm is mistakingly interpreting that I somehow don’t like explicit content, despite the fact that I turned on explicit content? I’m happy that Slacker does not have this problem and that it plays original uncensored music with high quality sound. Thanks for the great music, Slacker Radio, and keep the free-spirited uncensored music going—unhindered by the moralism that has apparently infected Pandora.

    Live x Live, The Best Free Music App! All free music apps have ads. Their ads are not annoying! Live is the Only One that doesn't throw in a ridiculous song 20 to 30 minutes later, completely unrelated to the genre you have requested. I highly recommend Live & have downloaded on several of my friends devices, they are all happier music listeners. You will be too.

    I love Slacker. I actually used it religiously about 10 years ago. It has always done a great job of mixing old and new with my custom stations. I left Slacker long ago when they made all the huge interface changes. I subscribed to Pandora and never really looked back. Fast forward to this week. I decide to see what’s going on with Slacker. Plus I wanted to see if my old stations had any gems I forgot about. I downloaded the app and connected it to my car stereo. The first thing I noticed was the sound quality was way better. Everything sounded more full than my pandora music. 2nd is that unlike pandora, my phone didn’t got into “accessory mode” making it hard to control it the way I want. 3rd was the interface looks great! Much better than the old blue colors of pandora. My only thing with it is why is it so hard to get to my custom stations? I couldn’t care less about the premade stations, I want to see a list of mine the moment I open the app. Instead I have to go to my music, then scroll around until I find custom stations. It should either be there from the get go or one tap away. Another bonus that I never thought I would like... djs and little snippets of news in between songs. They are short and informative and really make it feel like a premium radio station. Remember the old XM radio? It’s similar to that. Now XM has mindless bla bla bla in between songs. This is different and they nailed it.

  • The best at playing what you're in the mood for Apr 9, 2021

    By ManuelM13
    I've tried all of the other major music streaming apps and nothing beats livexlive/slacker where it counts: playing a station that you won't end up endlessly skipping through. The ability to play music that matches what you're in the mood for is second to none, and the ability to fine tune a station to play newer/older or similar/more diverse music gives you all of the power to play what you like. And you can like or dislike a song and it stays specific to the station. So maybe you don't want a pop song on your rock station, or maybe you do, and it won't affect if it'll play on another station. I have stations for all different types of moods and nothing else comes close to being able to do this at well. One knock: wish you could skip back to a previous song when on a station. Sometimes i wanna hear the same song a second time without leaving the station.

    The one thing I miss with streaming music these days is the lack of news updates and little personal dj touches. I thought it was a pipe dream to have news included with music streaming but somehow I found the perfect app! Not only does it have an option to include news updates, it has amazing curated stations for absolutely every mood. I have a spot in my heart for the 60s Deep Dive station. I paid for it for a while, which is great to curate your own stations, but now I use the free version which only adds adverts to my experience but I can still listen to the stations I created so it’s all the same to me!

    I've had this app for sooo many years, and have paid for no ads for just as many years. Now I have to hear songs I didn't add to my faves while in my favorites station. Even songs I specifically dislike! And intros?? And NOW my phone beeps and buzzed every time I touch anything in the app?! I'm so saddened by this, as I've spent so long boasting about how every other music app hasn't compared to [Slacker]! I'm hoping an improvement is on its way!!
  • Apparently not for use in the car Jul 25, 2019

    By Kaorovic
    The hands-free link support is dodgy at best. I don’t know who needs to hear this, but if I don’t want notices that means I don’t want notices about not receiving notices that I don’t want, especially if the notices I don’t want about the notices I don’t want to cause the app to not work correctly. The hands-free link always seems to stop working when it tries to give me a notice that I’m not receiving notices, even though I repeatedly declined notices. And when the hands-free link stops working the only way to skip a song is to open the app and skip through the app, this really brings up an advertisement that takes over I won’t play any audio at all. I understand how and support works, but I don’t understand how a music app has ads that don’t have any audio. It also seems like the more songs I favorite the less variety there is in the favorites station.

    For some reason, my stations no longer play the original song of the station... this was the main reason for choosing Slacker Radio in the first place. I'm not expecting to play all the time, but after 3 or 4 rotations of skipping the same songs in the playlist, still no original song ( w/subscription too). Update... went down to 1 star. Doesn't ever play the song of the station. Now it is officially the same as every other streaming app. Canceling my subscription
  • The truth Apr 27, 2019

    By Someone Youll Ignore
    Slacker was better when it was slacker the overhaul LiveXLive did of the app is hard to navigate. Where slacker made navigating around their app easy with a side bar that sent you where you wanted these guys hide your recently played stations in a sub menu off your profile and the home page is full of their advertising no one cares about and the offline play and custom playlists stations etc are all made prominent but if you don’t use any of that the. Your stuck trying figure out how to listen to your stations you had previously. LiveXLive take a lnother look at how easy slacker made their station and take some pointers and improve the navigation and I really don’t think a lot of people care about those “shows” on that page. We just want to listen to good music we like as we go about our day. You make it easier to do that then you’ll get a loyal fan base like what slacker had. I’ll continually check back and change my review if you guys actually listen to your listeners and improve your app. If you have any questions or anything let me know. Feels like I’m talking to a wall because so far I haven’t seen you answer any reviews yet.
  • Worst Radio App Ever Apr 13, 2018

    By Jay9739
    Okay, it’s time. Time to judge and being honest. Before I start my paid membership today on the radio plus, I paid enough attention to other feedbacks and I realized something important which once upon a time used to be available with this radio plus has been canceled and categorized in a highest level of membership with $9.99 and I bought my membership with full acknowledgment about this in particular but for what I experienced with this app, I didn’t expect anything worse and surprisingly right now and even before a whole day membership I just canceled the automatic payment and end of the story. I really have no idea what the designers of this app are thinking about but obviously they have forgotten that people are comparing similar service apps together and this one which supposed to be no advertise and pure music is everything but what it says it is. Anyway I am more comfortable to get back to my iHeartRadio or even Tunein radio with almost the same amount of monthly payments and don’t trick myself with something that is not even close to be a two stars app in my evaluation. Sorry that I had to be honest but that’s all I had to say.

    Latest update borked the app. Not 100% of the time but very frequently whenever the app is minimized or when my Bluetooth disconnects my notifications keep going off.. repeatedly.. And I have to restart the phone. Force quit didn't help, clearing cache didn't help... This has been my favorite streaming app by far but it's almost unusable since the last update. Please fix.
  • offline listening $4 —> $10... sub —> no sub Feb 11, 2018

    By thj4
    Big joke to put a music service up there with the higher tiers of video streaming provider. I wholly like the radio content delivery shtick. A great thing i enjoyed was to load up an older iPod, take it out with it to exercise or knock around with. Didn’t need WiFi or a SIM card, just played what was downloaded. Serving as a Walkman of old. Now, they expect you to either put the wear on my phone (and risk losing coverage if out on trails, or fork over an additional amount 1.5x the cost of the original package. I was introduced with Milk Music (which had a much superior dial channel selector) but I supported Slacker after they shut down the value added content they offered with Samsung phones. They can come back to $4 and count me a sub. Or at the least humor the process and come up with a decent lyrics display (that properly renders horizontally) or something so we’re not just getting gypped.
  • Disappointed Jun 9, 2019

    By kjs270
    Been an avid paying fan of Slacker for years until the recent big change. Now sometimes I can only play 4 or 5 songs then it just stops. Hitting pause, then play does nothing, neither does advancing to the next song. The next song shows up but doesn’t start playing it. I have to quit the program and restart it and sometimes it works and sometimes it still doesn’t work. At that point I go listen to Pandora or Google Play until Slacker decides to start working again. The old old saying, “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” really fits here. I never had a problem until now, and 3 months ago I would have given it an easy 5 star rating. Even on my computer, I use to listen to slacker for 6-8 hours without it stopping and asking me if I was still there. Now recently I’m lucky to go 90 minutes before it stops playing. Really disappointing ....

    I've been having significant connectivity issues with this app. Half of the time it says it's buffering, or has a pop-up about a connectivity issue. I nearly always have a strong 5G signal, and I never had these issues with Google Music, YouTube Music, Pandora, or Tidal. It must be the app, or the servers.
  • Not what it used to be Dec 11, 2021

    By Blnded
    I have used LiveXLive a min of 5-6 years, maybe more. Long before they changed the name from slacker radio. It used to be great and still has a crazy amount of songs. But the last year or two I have had more and more issues with playback, crashing, and improperly playing songs but I finally decided to cancel due to a fairly unprofessional reply from a support agent. It was kind of the last straw for me so for anyone looking to use this service I wish you luck and hope any issues you report to their support team doesn’t get you a sarcastic/lazy reply as the “solution” Yes in a small way my opinion is more negatively biased than it would have been before but overall it’s no longer worth even the 3.99 price I paid. I had downgraded long ago from the 9.99 membership for similar issues.

  • Buffering.. Buffering... Buffering Dec 7, 2019

    By Gruvedaddy
    Been a Slacker premium subscriber since 2009 and haven't had any buffering issues until they switched to XliveX. I have 400mb download wifi and still get constant buffering, and yes i always update to the latest version. Also it takes a lot longer to refresh my downloaded content then ever before almost like they have insufficient servers to provide the content. As much as I'd hate to lose the thousands of songs I've liked and disliked and stations and playlists I've created if this buffering bs continues i will cancel my subscription. This is one of the reasons I've kept my free Pandora account active, just in case Slacker went under which appears to be happening. Very bummed about this but i'll give XliveX another few weeks to straighten it out and if they don't I'm gone and I'll give Tidal or Apple music a shot.

    Great music provider with an enormous selection. Well thought out specialty stations. Not only do they allow me to build and modify my playlists but I can designate my favorite songs and play just them as their own station. News and sports updates, celebrity recording artists DJ's and other enhancements can be switched on and off per your preference. I'm sure there's more about it that I haven't even discovered yet. Just plain kicks the butt of every other service I've used!

    It's like listening to music the way it was meant to be enjoyed. I used to have mp3 but Google gave that up, YouTube also became pay or to many commercials. The biggest difference between this and YouTube is audio quality. It's like listening to CD or Vinyl if YouTube was a home cassette recording. I can hear a big difference between Ella Fitzgerald "Paper Moon" the sound is fuller or 80s band Book of Love "Roses" I can hear the stereo much more clearly.

  • Best Streaming Service for Music Discovery Oct 11, 2021

    By swood_de
    LiveXLive is, by far, the best of the most popular streaming services for music discovery. Their catalog is very deep and their genre specific channels reflect that, especially because the content is user-adjustable (ban a song or an artist, more or fewer popular songs, newer or older songs, etc). Plus, you can build your own stations my adding a artist you like to them, and then the app’s algorithm adds similar swings and artists which you can then ban if you disagree with the choice. Love it!

  • A little disappointed... Apr 24, 2019

    By BrownEyz72
    I have been a paid Slacker subscriber for many years...but I’m a bit disappointed with the look of the new app LiveXLive. New app should mean NEW cover art for ALL the stations. Some stations have had the same cover artist forever. I’m not a fan of the last played station window stuck in the lower corner as I browse the new site. It’s in the way. I’ve mentioned it before, but it would be nice if the people that create the playlists for stations could rotate music more frequently or add way more songs so that if one is listening during a work day, music hasn’t repeated itself numerous times. Especially if you aren’t listening to a New Release station. I give 4 stars because I am a loyal premium subscriber and I prefer slacker over all others.

    I reported a corrupt song a couple years ago and was told it would be handled. I just heard the same corrupted song today. How hard is it to remove a song from circulation?!? I was told there are multiple copies of the song - great! Why don’t you redirect to the good copies of the song or take a copy of a good one and rename it to take the place of the bad one. It seems there are multiple solutions to the problem and none of them have been utilized. Very disappointed. Other than that, it seems to be a decent music app.

    By Ceekay Mars
    So much better than I heart, I have been using this since it was called slacker, back when it powered milk music for Samsung devices, The UI is great, the plans are cheaper but I wish there was an option you select to watch full screen ads for premium features, paying every month indefinitely just because it’s marketed as a ‘service’ to justify a reoccurring monetary commitment is a bit much. It already has on screen ads in the free version so you are already being paid for my use of the app, not sure why I wouldn’t have premium features.

    I have been using this paid service since long before it switched from slacker radio. I love downloading track, albums, and my own playlists. I love that you can fine-tune stations. Their broadcasting music festivals is so cool but why aren’t they available any other time but live? Many are in Europe so they broadcast them in the middle of the night in the us. Why not make them available for future use? But how is it possible that they still don’t have the ability to send music to the Apple Watch!?!? I may be leaving LiveXLive after years of service for this reason alone.
  • Likening the songs I driving when I get home Aug 25, 2020

    By lordduece
    I do not know what changed but when I get homes I use to be able to hit the three bars and it took me. To a screen where I could mark songs of I like them or not bring back that feature it was great now all it. Shows is what songs played

    I’ve made Slacker my default music app. I love the ‘My Favorites’ station. Evolving over time. Accumulating ‘liked’ songs, and songs of similar artist and genres. You truly create your own station. Perfect for my commute. The $25/year ad free version is a bargain compare to others I’ve tried. Give Slacker a try. I think be impressed.

    I've had this app for sooo many years, and have paid for no ads for just as many years. Now I have to hear songs I didn't add to my faves while in my favorites station. Even songs I specifically dislike! And intros?? And NOW my phone beeps and buzzed every time I touch anything in the app?! I'm so saddened by this, as I've spent so long boasting about how every other music app hasn't compared to [Slacker]! I'm hoping an improvement is on its way!!

    The hands-free link support is dodgy at best. I don’t know who needs to hear this, but if I don’t want notices that means I don’t want notices about not receiving notices that I don’t want, especially if the notices I don’t want about the notices I don’t want to cause the app to not work correctly. The hands-free link always seems to stop working when it tries to give me a notice that I’m not receiving notices, even though I repeatedly declined notices. And when the hands-free link stops working the only way to skip a song is to open the app and skip through the app, this really brings up an advertisement that takes over I won’t play any audio at all. I understand how and support works, but I don’t understand how a music app has ads that don’t have any audio. It also seems like the more songs I favorite the less variety there is in the favorites station.

    It's a good app, I just wish they make it easier to add songs to a playlist from your song list instead of having to do 1 song individually. Another thing, I wish they had more songs I was looking for, english and non english. Edit: thanks for responding, I would be grateful at the very least for you to make it easier when it comes to playlist.
  • Used to love. Now? Not so much. Feb 9, 2021

    By Ghost_Cloud
    I've used slacker/Livexlive for a long time. But recently it's started pausing its music for no reason at all multiple times in a row. It also stops the music in the middle of the song or before the next song even begins and sits there and loads for as long as I allow it to sit there before exiting out of the app and restarting it. All while everything else on my phone is working perfectly fine with no issues at all. Now, it's telling me I can't cancel my subscription because there is an error trying to do so. It's rather annoying and I'm just trying to cancel it so I can go somewhere else at this point. Still a good app it's just not for me anymore.
  • It’s good when it works Jan 15, 2020

    By Smurglel328
    Usually I have a pretty good experience with this app but for whatever reason every time I try to download music offline it just doesn’t download, it will go up to six percent then just give up downloading and I am not sure if this is because of the internet or something to do with the app either way it bothers me. Another problem is for some reason out of nowhere it would just sign me out then I have to sign back then download the music again and it’s such a pain to go back and download it again as it’s a 50/50 shot if it’s going to work or not. That should wrap up the problems with this app.
  • Some good, some bad mostly just ok. May 6, 2020

    By Svtigi
    I have had slacker now liveX for a few years now and I have continue to subscribe because of the great random music algorithm it has, and the amazing stations with the DJ. The app it self has a lot of small things that can be frustrating to deal with, such as not having a restart bottom in the custom stations and if you open up the list of songs thinking that you can just hit the first song and be ok.....but no it just starts a new station from that song. At the end of the day it’s like most of the streaming stations in terms on songs.
  • Frustration is at peak with this app. Jun 8, 2020

    By Kokobutter1
    This app used to be my everything, it always worked, and it had almost any song. But as time has gone on, my music stops playing randomly, and I have to close out the app, and then re open. And it also won’t play a certain song on my playlist. If I click the green button, it plays, but I can’t chose a certain song. So not only does my music randomly stop, but I can’t even play a song that I want. I just have to shuffle until I find what I want
  • Over developed Oct 7, 2020

    By Zombie slayers
    Have this apps for years! Premium membership for years! This app is getting more and more confusing and hard to navigate. With each update it seems harder to find what you want, I understand they what you to go to someplace new and find more stuff they offer. Can’t fine tune your station thru app anymore at least I can’t figure out how. New buttons hidden icons, really? It’s not just me, was at work yesterday and recommend this app to a co worker few weeks ago. He said today and I quote “ what the hell! How to I play my station? Everything is jacked up!” I’m sure they will continue to make it more and more complicated then it needs to be, so is life. May need to start looking elsewhere for my music app. Seems like Every time I figure this thing out they change it and make it harder to use.
  • What happened May 3, 2021

    By JasonAtlanta
    I’ve been using this app with no issues since the slacker days. Since last week, the app basically doesn’t work. It might play one or two songs and then just stops. Can’t fast forward, etc…. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling the app and have restarted my phone several times - to no avail. Is it an issue with iOS 14.5? If it doesn’t work or is not fixed soon, I will have to drop LXL and try a competitor.
  • The truth Apr 27, 2019

    By Someone Youll Ignore
    Slacker was better when it was slacker the overhaul LiveXLive did of the app is hard to navigate. Where slacker made navigating around their app easy with a side bar that sent you where you wanted these guys hide your recently played stations in a sub menu off your profile and the home page is full of their advertising no one cares about and the offline play and custom playlists stations etc are all made prominent but if you don’t use any of that the. Your stuck trying figure out how to listen to your stations you had previously. LiveXLive take a lnother look at how easy slacker made their station and take some pointers and improve the navigation and I really don’t think a lot of people care about those “shows” on that page. We just want to listen to good music we like as we go about our day. You make it easier to do that then you’ll get a loyal fan base like what slacker had. I’ll continually check back and change my review if you guys actually listen to your listeners and improve your app. If you have any questions or anything let me know. Feels like I’m talking to a wall because so far I haven’t seen you answer any reviews yet.
  • offline listening $4 —> $10... sub —> no sub Feb 11, 2018

    By thj4
    Big joke to put a music service up there with the higher tiers of video streaming provider. I wholly like the radio content delivery shtick. A great thing i enjoyed was to load up an older iPod, take it out with it to exercise or knock around with. Didn’t need WiFi or a SIM card, just played what was downloaded. Serving as a Walkman of old. Now, they expect you to either put the wear on my phone (and risk losing coverage if out on trails, or fork over an additional amount 1.5x the cost of the original package. I was introduced with Milk Music (which had a much superior dial channel selector) but I supported Slacker after they shut down the value added content they offered with Samsung phones. They can come back to $4 and count me a sub. Or at the least humor the process and come up with a decent lyrics display (that properly renders horizontally) or something so we’re not just getting gypped.
  • Disappointed Jun 9, 2019

    By kjs270
    Been an avid paying fan of Slacker for years until the recent big change. Now sometimes I can only play 4 or 5 songs then it just stops. Hitting pause, then play does nothing, neither does advancing to the next song. The next song shows up but doesn’t start playing it. I have to quit the program and restart it and sometimes it works and sometimes it still doesn’t work. At that point I go listen to Pandora or Google Play until Slacker decides to start working again. The old old saying, “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” really fits here. I never had a problem until now, and 3 months ago I would have given it an easy 5 star rating. Even on my computer, I use to listen to slacker for 6-8 hours without it stopping and asking me if I was still there. Now recently I’m lucky to go 90 minutes before it stops playing. Really disappointing ....

    I've been having significant connectivity issues with this app. Half of the time it says it's buffering, or has a pop-up about a connectivity issue. I nearly always have a strong 5G signal, and I never had these issues with Google Music, YouTube Music, Pandora, or Tidal. It must be the app, or the servers.
  • Not what it used to be Dec 11, 2021

    By Blnded
    I have used LiveXLive a min of 5-6 years, maybe more. Long before they changed the name from slacker radio. It used to be great and still has a crazy amount of songs. But the last year or two I have had more and more issues with playback, crashing, and improperly playing songs but I finally decided to cancel due to a fairly unprofessional reply from a support agent. It was kind of the last straw for me so for anyone looking to use this service I wish you luck and hope any issues you report to their support team doesn’t get you a sarcastic/lazy reply as the “solution” Yes in a small way my opinion is more negatively biased than it would have been before but overall it’s no longer worth even the 3.99 price I paid. I had downgraded long ago from the 9.99 membership for similar issues.
  • Buffering.. Buffering... Buffering Dec 7, 2019

    By Gruvedaddy
    Been a Slacker premium subscriber since 2009 and haven't had any buffering issues until they switched to XliveX. I have 400mb download wifi and still get constant buffering, and yes i always update to the latest version. Also it takes a lot longer to refresh my downloaded content then ever before almost like they have insufficient servers to provide the content. As much as I'd hate to lose the thousands of songs I've liked and disliked and stations and playlists I've created if this buffering bs continues i will cancel my subscription. This is one of the reasons I've kept my free Pandora account active, just in case Slacker went under which appears to be happening. Very bummed about this but i'll give XliveX another few weeks to straighten it out and if they don't I'm gone and I'll give Tidal or Apple music a shot.
  • Crappy customer service Jun 24, 2019

    By Nickd69420
    It all started a few months back, couldn’t use slacker off WiFi, could only use offline after I updated the app. I contacted customer service and a guy named Charles was NO help at all. Days would go by with out a email back, then he tried to blame my cell provider and we went back and forth. My buddies had the same problem, so I knew it wasn’t our phones BUT I did find out, after they released the update before “LiveXLive” it turned off data for slacker. Turned it back on, and now we all have slacker again. I’ll continue to subscribe, but I’ll never email them again for a problem.
  • Use to be great Jun 24, 2018

    By NinjaPurgs
    Slacker use to be awesome, until the last several updates brought more and more ads with each one. Sometimes it's so bad that I'll only be able to listen to one song before having to listen to two more commercials. They now have implemented full pop up ads that they make you watch if you want to switch stations. They've also completely screwed over their Plus members by taking away the offline feature, and now they're expecting you to pay $10 a month to get it back. Greed has ruined yet another great app. I will be searching for a replacement.
  • Support issues Oct 16, 2020

    By seikuro
    I have had problems over the years trying to restart subscriptions through iTunes. This last time, my account would sit and idly spin if I tried in my new iPhone - no matter if I had tried to renew through the app or on the website Safari. I finally had to get on my desktop to renew it. I’m debating cancelling my service because, despite being relatively content with the product, I’m unhappy with the support I received from Frank this go-around. It saddens me because I’d had brand loyalty since the Slacker days.
  • Do not like ONE aspect of the new app May 4, 2019

    By $$-not worth it
    We have been using slacker for about 5 years. It is the only radio music app we use, and we pay monthly for unlimited access. With the new update, we are unable to search for specific songs. It only allows us to search artists or stations. That’s disappointing when we know the song and want to hear it without knowing who sings it. That’s how we make our playlists. If this isn’t going to be a part of the app anymore, we may have to look for another radio music app. I hope an artist search is added back to the app. <3-C

    For some reason, my stations no longer play the original song of the station... this was the main reason for choosing Slacker Radio in the first place. I'm not expecting to play all the time, but after 3 or 4 rotations of skipping the same songs in the playlist, still no original song ( w/subscription too). Update... went down to 1 star. Doesn't ever play the song of the station. Now it is officially the same as every other streaming app. Canceling my subscription
  • Worst Radio App Ever Apr 13, 2018

    By Jay9739
    Okay, it’s time. Time to judge and being honest. Before I start my paid membership today on the radio plus, I paid enough attention to other feedbacks and I realized something important which once upon a time used to be available with this radio plus has been canceled and categorized in a highest level of membership with $9.99 and I bought my membership with full acknowledgment about this in particular but for what I experienced with this app, I didn’t expect anything worse and surprisingly right now and even before a whole day membership I just canceled the automatic payment and end of the story. I really have no idea what the designers of this app are thinking about but obviously they have forgotten that people are comparing similar service apps together and this one which supposed to be no advertise and pure music is everything but what it says it is. Anyway I am more comfortable to get back to my iHeartRadio or even Tunein radio with almost the same amount of monthly payments and don’t trick myself with something that is not even close to be a two stars app in my evaluation. Sorry that I had to be honest but that’s all I had to say.

    Latest update borked the app. Not 100% of the time but very frequently whenever the app is minimized or when my Bluetooth disconnects my notifications keep going off.. repeatedly.. And I have to restart the phone. Force quit didn't help, clearing cache didn't help... This has been my favorite streaming app by far but it's almost unusable since the last update. Please fix.

    O paid $ 39 and can't use the app without the annoying ads and limited skips then the ad says $ 24 + for a full year and won't let me do that either... I might just go to another streaming service that believes in getting what you want and paid for !!!
  • STILL doesn’t work right Sep 19, 2021

    By B-futile
    Regardless of continuous updates this app Still only plays one song at a time when Bluetoothing to my Google home max hub. The adds seem to disrupt the connection. Also when you press play on iPhone the app disconnects the Bluetooth. (Possible ploy to get you to sign up the the pay for service app???). So aggravating. Pandora works fine by the way. Can you fix this already?!? It not rocket science, it’s not brain surgery. Regular people can take space flights and We can fly remote control helicopters on Mars...but sorry you can’t seamlessly stream music, or a least more than one song, from your phone to another device. Did I mention that Pandora works fine? And, yes, before you ask, everything is up to date, rebooted and plugged in. -Frustrated.
  • Worse and Worse May 26, 2021

    By Ricky Onscreen
    i have been telling people about Slacker and now LivexLive for at least a decade. This was the BEST THING available. ANYWHERE. Now i have to say i have never been more disappointed with an app! Lately the video ads are playing over the music and forcing me to unlock my phone which uses more data. Three weeks in a row the Weekly Countdowns have started over before i got to the Number One song. i understood when that happened on the day the Countdown debuts, but this is happening every time now. It's hard to imagine not having livexlive on my phone. i'm a little sad after so many years of relying on this app to bring the music i need to get thru my days but now it's becoming a source of frustration. i have to find something else now.
  • USED to be great Aug 14, 2019

    By RDU06
    Slacker has always struggled, in my opinion, with various generations of their app. Sometimes it was amazing and easy to use, other times it was not. But this merge with LiveXLive is AWFUL. It’s so bad that I had to restore my iPhone to a previous iOS in order to get an old backup with the old app. I’ll use this version until they force me to upgrade and then I’ll probably cancel after almost 10 years of being a premium paid subscriber. I use this service almost exclusively on my phone while driving. I’m not sure if they have figured this out yet, but most people don’t want to watch videos while they’re driving... I’m sure they feel that they’re offering additional content by this merge, but all I see is a bunch of garbage in place of a clean music interface.
  • The New updated. Jul 9, 2019

    By SMM1993
    When slacker first came out it was great. I purchased the premium package so I could listen to the music I wanted to listen to when I wanted to. When slacker switched to the “LiveXLive” is when it all went down hill. I could no longer search by song, you have to type in the artist. I figured it was fine because I could still at least listen to the songs I wanted without having to worry about my “skips” running out (Because I paid to do so). Now with the new update it wont even let me listen to the playlists I created or the songs that I want! Again, SOMETHING I PAID FOR!!! And now it wants me to purchase a premium package?? Yeah I already did that! Give me my money back for the first time I paid for it! May as well just use pandora....
  • Had for years, just cancelled. Oct 30, 2019

    By SCMedic911
    I have had Slacker for years. That entire time I paid for premium service. I used this app daily. The other day I opened the app and saw my account was now a basic plan as opposed to premium. I emailed customer service who stated that I never had a premium account. I forwarded my iTunes subscription notice which showed I was a current premium user. I received an email back saying th over computer said differently and that I’d need to upgrade to premium. “No worries,” I thought. I could just upgrade and it would be fine. Except it wouldn’t let me upgrade since it already showed me as a premium member. I sent one more email but never got a response. So, I deleted the app, canceled my subscription, and downloaded Tidal. It is a far superior app.
  • Horrible Apr 5, 2020

    By Dave804
    Slacker WAS a great app. Someone’s ego and pride at LiveXLive whatever it’s called ruined a great app. This was a huge mistake to merge Slacker with livex and it’s a horrible user experience next to the old Slacker app. Video content is weak and should have been an add-on to Slacker and clearly not enough to wipeout Slacker and replace it with Livex whatever it’s calling itself! People want to LISTEN to music. They don’t want to watch poorly filmed video clips with horrible audio and awkward unknown amateur interviewers. This rebranding was a horrible idea and you ruined Slacker in the process. Good thing they cleared the reviews for you so your ratings look better then they actually are. But that’s ok. People are smart, they will figure it out for themselves.
