  • Loss of Offline Listening in Plus

    by Berlynn88

    Like many, I left Pandora a few years ago in search of something better. I was tired of listening to the same old things, the price just to remove ads, and those limited skips. I finally found Slacker, 3.99 a month for Plus subscription, featuring unlimited skips, no ads, and the BEST thing was offline listening for work travel or when reception was poor. It wasn’t uncommon to have minor issues with the app, but those were mostly just mildly annoying and often times addressed in the next update. Today I go to listen to my offline playlist as usual and was given a notification that I would have to upgrade to a Premium subscription to enjoy offline listening. What?? I did a bit of digging and realized that the Plus subscription has removed offline listening from its list of perks. Really?? It’s worse that I wasn’t even given a warning or a quick email/notification. They just changed it. $4 a month was the perfect sweet spot for what I got, but I don’t think it’s worth $10 per month. I find myself a bit distrustful of the way they went about it. I wouldn’t have been terribly upset if they increased their rate $1-2 per month with notice but to jump $6 a month? No way. Now I get to start doing some research again into switching music apps.

  • by FlossiMaeB DownThaStreet

    Received a message saying that my account had been misused and that I need to fill out a form. What's this about and where is the form? App is now force closing again or just getting stuck. It's affecting my entire phone. I've had to restart my phone 3 times and the app deleted one of my playlists. I would like some answers. I've already emailed support so I'm waiting on you guys.

  • Worst Radio App Ever

    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.

  • by Kevin Allen

    As great as the music is this app has become the most unreliable app I've ever used. It shuts down in the middle of a song ALL the time. I thought upgrading to a new phone would work and still the same old problems. Just shuts down for no reason no matter what you do. And Slacker refuses to create an update to solve this problem no matter how much you complain, email or send in reports!!!!! Just the same old and tired responses that don't work and blaming you for the issues!!!!

  • offline listening $4 —> $10... sub —> no sub

    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.

  • by A Google user

    Annoyed, I understand paying for no commercials and skips, but quality of service. recently, I got rid of premium to pinch pennies. I immediately realized that my music would often stop for no reason, right in the middle of a song. I'd open the app and the song is sitting there paused. this never happened once with the premium. I think someone at slacker is an a-hole, nowadays you can still put out a free product and still make money. instead you're trying to force people into plus or premium.

  • by Sarah Skipper

    The ads keep pausing the songs! Every 20 seconds it keeps stopping and I have to keep hitting play. If it does not get fixed and keeps doing this, I'm switching to another player. I thought this was better than Pandora but not with this happening!

  • No offline listening with paid subscription

    by Mpcookie

    $3.99 Plus subscription had offline listening. Slacker removed this feature and now wanted more than double to get it back. Attempted to contact Slacker about this and was treated as if they could care less if I was a customer or not. Apparently paying for their content isn’t needed. Must be making a killing in advertising, so I will no longer be using this app, received refund from iTunes, and cancelled auto renew subscription today. I bet another app will appreciate a paying user and not offer paid features that they will take away and not lower the price. You can’t take away a feature and expect me to pay the same price.

  • by Jason A-R

    No options and you have to listen to ads. No, I will not pay for a bad product to avoid ads...even if Toyota foces this on car owners. EDIT: Yes, we all know what ads are for and I am ok with them but make the service good enough that the ads are worth it or the product is worth paying for.

  • Use to be great

    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.

  • by A Google user

    A joke of an app. Has a lot of music and lets you down load music. Slow to launch in no or slow data areas even in offline mode. The random function plays the same thing over and over. It does not work well in slower data speed service area. Pandora works fine while slacker gives a connection error. There is still a bunch of mislabeled music. Delet a song from playlist offline, next sync adds it back.

  • by A Google user

    Slacker is awesome but their app sucks! Causes my S8+ to lag badly. When switching from one song to the next the app will just randomly stop causing me to have to unlock my phone at which point the app restarts. Impossible to listen for any period of time without having to dick around fixing the app.

  • Dropping Premium accounts

    by rlovvo

    After multiple years of good service, I surrender. Deleting both premium subscriptions and the app from each device. Worst customer service ever. Day 14, slacker breaks my wife’s account. Very very poor service. Daily emails, 2 responses, neither one regarding MY account. Update: Day 11 with my broken Premium subscription. No new responses from Slacker. Update: Day 8, nothing. Still Premium not working, Slacker will not respond to emails. Update: Day 4, finally get an email directing me to use my wife’s account. My account info I sent was not even mentioned. Terrible customer service for a long-time premium subscriber. The free 2 week premium offer has broken my current premium membership. It know I am a premium subscriber, so I cannot update, yet I cannot access my content without subscribing. Terrible catch 22. Please fix. The offline play is by far the best feature of the app. I can listen on the road and at work without data streaming. I hope the lyrics come back soon.

  • Slacker was good, now not so much

    by Fidelio 360

    I have used slacker radio since the beginning. In fact I had a slacker radio MP3 player for offline listening. I was their biggest fan. Now they have taken away their popular and only reason for me to stay, the plus subscription. You used to be able to download offline music and listen to it at higher quality and unlimited skips. Now they want 10 bucks a month. Also if you are a legacy customer they are taking away functionality. I see they are learning from EA and just squeezing people for money. I will get my music from elsewhere you should too their service is just a push for money! STAY AWAY!

  • by Sabian Rice

    I love Slacker but there is one fatal flaw: I dont want it to charge my verizon bill every month. Why cant it charge my card? Why is that so difficult for it to do that? This is litterally the only thing that I have an issue with.

  • by Dieter Gum

    I like the stations and music selection. I can't use it on battery because it will drain in less than an hour. No other app on this phone can drain a battery faster. The only time I can use this app is when the phone is on external power. Too bad because I really like the music selection.

  • Custom stations are great. Everything else is buggy

    by Argh iTunes and gimlet

    I’m a premium $10 subscriber. I don’t care about the cost. I love the custom stations. But... Why do I have to turn the stupid host off on every station? Want to hear your speakers pop every time you switch playlists, switch stations, go back a song, pause, etc? Then slacker is for you! You can’t see upcoming songs, and going back to previous songs is impossible unless you exit your station and start a station of that one song. Searching for songs isn’t always easy. It plays weird versions of songs like instrumentals, and censored versions (even though I have censors turned off) I’m still trying to like it because of custom stations, but I’m pretty close to abandoning it.

  • Disappointed in Slacker

    by Joyjoy37

    I like the music lineup here better than others but it's not worth it to listen to it when the music stops playing every few seconds. Then when I go to hit play again music will continue to stop. It's not worth it to have this app on my phone taking up space if I never know when it will consistently play music. I'm looking for a new music app now... getting ready to shut this one down.

  • No GPS Satellites

    by Keachman

    If your navigation apps are malfunctioning and you have Slacker installed delete Slacker and then see if your navigation app works properly. I had to delete the app on my iPhone 6S because the app prevented my phone from receiving GPS satellites. I started deleting apps and reinstalling them one at a time and as soon as I deleted Slacker app the GPS app I was using showed four active satellites. This app should have no reason to access my location and should never interfere with the reception of GPS signals. .

  • Issues with App

    by sewest82

    A few months ago I had issues being able to skip songs. I pay per month so I can have more flexibility. Anyways, I reached out to support because I got a notification about ”skipping too many times”. They said that even when you pay, they can still step in and prevent you from skipping songs. Total BS but I stayed. Today I go to listen and the app won’t load. I wanted to reach out to support but I got an error. It’s just this particular app not working.

  • Love slacker

    by Lairdg

    We live in Alaska and do a lot of flying out of State and to remote sites for work and We have a remote cabin with no internet. I most enjoyed that I could cache music for long weekends and flights when we have no internet. But now some greedy exec wants more money for the option that was the best part. And the worst part was they never said a thing. I did the usual update and without warning my account was locked. I will cancel my subscription immediately.

  • Awful app

    by Kevin6812

    I guess the dash radio stations fell through huh slacker.... slacker hates the metal community that’s why there’s only 9 stations... nothing updated same boring playlist on classic metal,,,, party metal not updated since 2008. Sudden loss of AOL radio... still upset over that. Very rude staff that needs retraining. Bring back the slacker forums... reddit slacker is a ghost town and the mod has a bad attitude. No fine tuning for offline mode.. staff told me it’s due to copyright...... bull crap... I will no longer be using slacker radio....

  • Pop up Video Ads

    by Skrpo1

    As a free Slacker user for many years, I have loved Slacker because of the noninvasive ads. However I noticed lately there are full screen multiple video ads that have nothing to do with music that have started popping up when playing stations. Very annoying and not necessary. I see many user complaints in the near future because of this.

  • Terrible

    by Zzzyyyxxx

    Slacker recently replaced AOL Radio. NO COMPARISON! You now must pay $3.99/mo. for what used to be free on AOL. For example, on AOL, I could pick genres or decades, say “British Invasion”, get ALL songs by Beatles, Stones, Who, Animals, Kinks, Yardbirds, Badfinger, Dave Clark 5, Hendrix, Herman’s Hermits, Cream, Donovan, Hollies, Moody Blues, et al, the REAL Brits. Now, on Slacker, I choose British Invasion and I get one “almost” Brit song, then new American stuff that has nothing to do with Brit Invasion of late 60’s early 70’s. Terrible, I will delete the app. Please come back AOL Radio, I listened to you for many years!

  • Getting rid of offline for Plus Members

    by Eeicd1983336

    The biggest reason I went with a membership with Slacker was for offline listening which I’ve paid $3.99/month for for years. Now in an effort to “save customers loads of money”-a quote from the email I just received from Slacker, I now have to upgrade to Premium for the same benefit I was already receiving at more than double the price. I’ll be cancelling my membership and considering alternatives

  • Not Getting What Was Paid For & CS Is Bad

    by Mike9400

    I have a subscription to Slacker Radio Plus. I noticed a couple weeks later that I had newly acquired a little red limited “skip song” counter. When inquired, I asked Slacker Billing CS what was up. They said they never received subscription from me. Even after emailing them a screenshot of Apple’s receipt and then another screenshot proving it to be an “Active Subscription,” I am still being denied the service I paid for.

  • App says no signal with full bars LTE

    by Disgruntleduser86

    Not sure what happened within the last few days but I can no longer use the app. It says that there is no signal when I have full bars and every other streaming service I have works just fine. Please fix this issue ASAP as I pay a monthly fee for premium services. Would be glad to delete the review once issue is fixed, thank you 👍🏼👍🏼

  • Very hard to understand this app

    by MrPeery

    why does slacker radio keep asking me to uograde for free after I’ve already done it? PLUS I’ve upgraded to the “Plus” subscription. What does that exactly do for me? I don’t see a difference because I still see ads and I can’t get anything on-demand...why bother even calling it an upgrade. You just want the money.

  • Uninformed price upgrade

    by KSM273

    Totally agree with Berly88. Loved their music and format. I live in a valley so service can be questionable, so the offline ability was a nice feature. I did not know I had been “upgraded” until I got my credit card statement. I’m on disability and I could deal with $3.99/month, but $9.99 is totally out of my budget. Slacker pulled a fast one so I pulled Slacker.

  • Too many issues to stay

    by Makeoneforme

    The 3.99 Plus was great. Had several issues here and there; I tried Pandora last month only to come back this month and find out the they removed offline listening from Plus. So not paying 3.99 for what I can get free, minus the unlimited skips. Seriously, 3.99/mo for unlimited skips. No warning it was changing? I’ll pay more somewhere else if I have to.

  • Doesn’t work

    by Cntryman77

    I have always used aol radio with was basically run by slacker. AOL is going offline & slacker is what they say to use. Except that the songs don’t play. They stop on their own after a few seconds, then I hit play & get a few more seconds before they stop again. I’m tried multiple channels & it’s always the same thing. Guess I’ll have to go back to Pandora.

  • No Offline and Bad Support

    by BrunelloRockStar

    Lost offline feature and contacted support. Had them cancel my subscription and they acknowledged. Found out on my own that subscription is not really cancelled and contacted my mobile carrier to cancel. Was a subscriber since 2010. Terrible customer service. They said they emailed about the change. Why not let people know in app instead? Company is going down the drain!

  • Cancelling 3 paid subscriptions.

    by PA Mike

    I have loved slacker for many years, but our time has come to an end. I just cancelled auto renewing on 3 paid accounts for myself and my kids because Slacker seems to have removed the ability to play offline (download) music on the Plus account. This is a deal breaker. This is very disappointing, and I hope they loose lots of customers.

  • Slackers Gone Down Hill

    by Bri_201

    As many others I’m leaving slacker cause they took away offline listening in the $3.99 plus subscription. This feature helped me tons without having to use my 2gigs of LTE on music streaming unfortunately due to corporate greed most likely gonna go to Pandora plus this does include a limited but offline mode. Whoever made this change made a huge mistake.

  • Stopped Using

    by Jericho92

    So glitchy I stopped using a while ago. Then you just teased me with a notification, I click on it and you take me to the homepage where I can not find what you were notifying me about anywhere. Notifications are supposed to take you what you are notifying me about. But I guess you wouldn’t know that since you barely know how to make an app that works.

  • Pick google play or Apple Music

    by gunworx

    So I’ve used slacker for two years the paid version and I’ve had the same issue for that same amount of time. The customer service is horrible. And they lose licenses left and right. There is so much potential to be great but there is an unwillingness to do so. Go with another music player you will thank me that you did!

  • Says latest update fixes iPhone X display

    by WJKramer

    I don’t think slacker owns one to test. UI buttons overlap top time and info bar, menu and search button don’t line up properly in header. Now playing sits on top of protected area at bottom of phone. Literally nothing changed. I only use this service on sonos now. If I had to use the slacker app I would have to drop the service.

  • Poor

    by MommaK121712

    Since i have updated the app , i can not listen to anything it is always trying to buffer or telling me there is no connection. Whether i am on wifi or using my phones data i have uninstalled the app and reinstalled and still does not work!!! it’s ridiculous . i have had slacker for 3 years now and use to love it until now!

  • “Unlimited skips” changed!!’

    by madsturtevant

    After 6 skips I can’t even listen to the station anymore! Emailed support and they did not help and told me I was skipping too much too frequently. Wouldn’t listen to me that it is happening when it shouldn’t be. I will probably have to switch radio providers after 10 years with Slacker. Extremely unhappy.

  • Youre a DJ...just play the music

    by bugman86

    Ive had the app for a while now, and am tired of the DJs thinking they need to push their political agenda on the listeners... Im a legal American and don’t appreciate the President (current or passed) being bashed because he is doing what he was chosen to do. You're a DJ just play the music and shut your mouth, we don't need your negative mouth bringing us down, leave that to the nightly news...

  • Latest version crashes frequently

    by JoeNobodyX

    This latest version keeps crashing my phone before can even complete a song… And then, of course, I get presented with an annoying video ad upon restarting. iPhone 8 is the device in question. Please fix!

  • Was awesome, now won't open

    by Deedubs85

    Long time listener, what the hell happened? Used to be the best radio but now it's crap. Barely works and making me frustrated! Crashed multiple times while writing this. Tech support no help either, I made every change recommended still crashing. Can we go back in time to when it worked?

  • Plus subscription no longer allows offline music

    by Wausau user

    Slacker has been great but for my $4 a month I played offline content the most. Now plus no longer includes this and I'd have to pay $10 a month for offline capability. Going to cancel subscription. Disappointed in the price change.

  • Long time User

    by Nathanuelhaviza

    I have had slacker since they were on blackberry and after always paying for unlimited skips and offline music but now after slacker has changed around the pricing they will be loosing me as a customer they no longer offer anything that someone else doesn't have.

  • So long Slacker Radio

    by Bri NJ

    I have supported Slacker Radio from its beginning & will longer do so since you can no longer download on Slacker Plus. I am not paying $9.99 for Slacker Premium for an extremely small library of songs compared to the competition! I don’t see your service being around much longer!!

  • Loss of offline

    by Crash daily

    I have the paid subscription, ( 3.99 ) for add skipping and offline content. It wasn't the best source but for the price it had great value. However with this last update it didn't say you are losing the ability to fly with slacker. I'm searching now for something else. It's sad i really liked slacker.

  • Ads

    by The_0ne!

    The app was great until you started letting adds pop-up in the middle of a song. So I have to come back to my phone, close the add, and then resume the song. How stupid is that! Whether I have premium or not that should not happen.

  • Video ad stops music!!

    by polishmiss

    They’ll be a small video ad during the music playing that actually stops the music because of the video and it’s very annoying. Get rid of those video ads or fix it so it doesn’t stop the music.

  • Log in process broken

    by Euros time

    My customer login works on one device, however exact same login results in error message when used on another device. Customer support could not resolve problem other than advising me to cancel subscription and initiate new one.

  • Subscription Doesn’t Work

    by AvidPlayer1983

    I am paying $9.99 a month for supreme subscription and when I try to do things it says I have to subscribe to use that feature. So I click on subscribe and it tells me I’m already subscribed. I can’t use the features of the subscription I pay for and it’s infuriating!

  • Can’t cancel subscription.

    by Roarei13

    The directions the developers are giving me is wrong for my iPhone 8. Online it tells me to modify my account within the app. The app will let me upgrade, but in order for me to downgrade or cancel my subscription, I am forced to follow directions that takes the consumer on a wild goose chase. Good luck canceling.

  • No more offline content, no more customer

    by NotaRhapsodyFan

    Sneakily removed offline content functionality from Plus subscription service. No notification and no reduction in fee for removing functionality. Disappointing because I used to like slacker. I have canceled my subscription and will not be back.

  • Consider other options

    by imaginate something

    Like other reviews here, i am highly disappointed that offline listening has been removed from the $3.99/mo, slacker plus subscription. $10/mo is too steep. As much as i hate to say this, cuz i love slacker, now considering ditching it. Bummer!

  • Regions

    by Heather Macnamara

    Ok, so I have only Music on my apple device. I move all around the world because I am a military child, right now I am not in the Us or Canada which is the only place where this app allows me to play music. And you have to pay to listen to music.

  • Latest Update

    by cjbne

    I am not sure what is going on. The update description is either a bad rap or someone should be replaced as the update notes writer. I would really like to know what they are doing to make the application better instead of wasting everyone’s time writing and then reading their rap.

  • Hard to cancel subscription

    by Smilie91190

    They make you call your service provider to cancel. You can’t cancel on the phone application, or on their website. You literally have to call the provider. Why is that even a thing? Very frustrating.

  • What’s with the sign in function?

    by jertys

    I’ve had to log out 9 out of the last 10 times I’ve opened the app. This app worked great at first but now it’s just annoying. I’ve since just given up and uninstalled.

    Premium Doesn’t work in Tesla model 3 even with sign in and password. The entire reason I tried it was to be able to play any song anytime. Doesn’t do that.

  • Politics free option please

    by atummac

    On my first listen, I had to listen ads produced by Slacker endorsing certain political stances (platitudes). When I choose to listen to music, I hope to escape from exactly that. Give me a shamwow or even some extenze commercial instead. Almost anything would be less crass.

  • 😔

    by unhappy skipper

    Im still trying to figure out why, if I have slacker premium, my skips are limited

  • “Unlimited skips” changed!!’

    by madsturtevant

    After 6 skips I can’t even listen to the station anymore! Emailed support and they did not help and told me I was skipping too much too frequently. Wouldn’t listen to me that it is happening when it shouldn’t be. I will probably have to switch radio providers after 10 years with Slacker. Extremely unhappy.

  • Subscription Doesn’t Work

    by AvidPlayer1983

    I am paying $9.99 a month for supreme subscription and when I try to do things it says I have to subscribe to use that feature. So I click on subscribe and it tells me I’m already subscribed. I can’t use the features of the subscription I pay for and it’s infuriating!

  • Something different

    by j_mofo_cash

    Music selection is epic, real user friendly. Kills me when it crashes. The better music app, just needs bugs worked out

  • 8/29 update is draining my battery

    by Nnnnnnnnnnononon

    Come on slacker. Why is this latest update draining my phone battery.

  • Do not download

    by cmtrouty

    Slacker used to be a great app! Notice how I said used to be. Every day it seems like they make more music you can’t play on demand. Do not get the premium! It’s not worth it because at the rate they are going nothing will be able to be on demand it will be the same as pandora..so that’s why I’m about to switch to maybe Spotify or something better..guess slacker had its time of fame but not anymore

  • Ads

    by The_0ne!

    The app was great until you started letting adds pop-up in the middle of a song. So I have to come back to my phone, close the add, and then resume the song. How stupid is that! Whether I have premium or not that should not happen.

  • It’s been good

    by Bonami55

    I have listened to slacker radio from the beginning and I enjoyed it a lot. Until now, sadly I noticed that slacker’s on demand library has been dropping due to artist pulling away their rights to listen to on demand cd’s and stand alone artists. I had to switch over to Spotify to be able to listen to camilla cabello cd that I once was able to listen to on slacker but cant anymore. The same with Bill Wither’s essential cd. If those cd’s got dropped from on demand you better bet that many others have also along with artists wont let you listen to it. That is sad because I really enjoyed slacker radio and now I am switching over to Spotify because your library is shrinking and I am not able to listen to any albums or artist I want to because they get pulled up. So long Slacker, was good while it lasted.

  • Can’t cancel. Send help.

    by RebekahCMH

    It’s not the worst music app but I prefer my YouTube red. I’ve been being charged $9.99 and $3.99 a month forever it seems; and because it was purchased on a different device; that app is not in my current phones purchased apps. On the slacker app they say to go to the phone company and the phone company tells me to go the app. There’s nowhere in the app to just easily cancel and I end up screenshotting directions and going back and forth from settings to iTunes to App Store to slacker to Apple ID until I break down and give up. Now I have to log onto slacker from a computer; even though I downloaded and signed up on a device. I’ve basically become slackers B*****. This is making me a bit crazy and I wouldn’t recommend this app unless your 100% sure you want to commit to only slacker for the rest of your life. At this point I’m beginning to believe my Hell would be trying to cancel the slacker app all day every day on repeat for all of eternity.

  • Ehhh

    by Stevo5bone

    It’s a decent app. It worked better before they raised the price

  • Uninformed price upgrade

    by KSM273

    Totally agree with Berly88. Loved their music and format. I live in a valley so service can be questionable, so the offline ability was a nice feature. I did not know I had been “upgraded” until I got my credit card statement. I’m on disability and I could deal with $3.99/month, but $9.99 is totally out of my budget. Slacker pulled a fast one so I pulled Slacker.

  • Custom stations are great. Everything else is buggy

    by Argh iTunes and gimlet

    I’m a premium $10 subscriber. I don’t care about the cost. I love the custom stations. But... Why do I have to turn the stupid host off on every station? Want to hear your speakers pop every time you switch playlists, switch stations, go back a song, pause, etc? Then slacker is for you! You can’t see upcoming songs, and going back to previous songs is impossible unless you exit your station and start a station of that one song. Searching for songs isn’t always easy. It plays weird versions of songs like instrumentals, and censored versions (even though I have censors turned off) I’m still trying to like it because of custom stations, but I’m pretty close to abandoning it.

  • Used to be good

    by Ghostly potato

    Now it's 💩

  • Use to be great

    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.

  • Update screwed up slacker app completely

    by deathlygamerg

    It will no longer even let me on to my account or even make one to listen to music anymore. Guess it’s time to move on to something that doesn’t waste my time.

  • Horrrrrrriiiibbblllllllleeeeeee 🤦🏻‍♀️

    by peach kisses

    They take away songs for some reason I don’t know why but it’s getting annoying I really don’t recommend at all.

  • Regions

    by Heather Macnamara

    Ok, so I have only Music on my apple device. I move all around the world because I am a military child, right now I am not in the Us or Canada which is the only place where this app allows me to play music. And you have to pay to listen to music.

  • Youre a DJ...just play the music

    by bugman86

    Ive had the app for a while now, and am tired of the DJs thinking they need to push their political agenda on the listeners... Im a legal American and don’t appreciate the President (current or passed) being bashed because he is doing what he was chosen to do. You're a DJ just play the music and shut your mouth, we don't need your negative mouth bringing us down, leave that to the nightly news...

  • meh..

    by LOLZ ☠

    lost all my custom stations 👎 interface is poo-poo 👎 slacker no longer viable 👎 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

  • My Music

    by Spottedleaf4927

    Sooo when I try listening to music like Ariana Grande or Katy Perry, I have to listen to like every song JUST to get the song I want!! I don’t want No Tears Left to Cry RADIO!! I want the actual SONG!! Sooooo when I can listen to my songs (NOT the radios) I’ll come back. 😡😡😡👎👎👎

  • Stopped Using

    by Jericho92

    So glitchy I stopped using a while ago. Then you just teased me with a notification, I click on it and you take me to the homepage where I can not find what you were notifying me about anywhere. Notifications are supposed to take you what you are notifying me about. But I guess you wouldn’t know that since you barely know how to make an app that works.

  • Tired of slacker

    by Jlk7410

    Used to be my favorite.. Not anymore - Goodbye slacker

  • No longer works

    by thelukeg15

    Been a user for years. Now it doesn’t work at all. Error message every time I open. Please make it work again.

  • V17.19.1 doesn’t work

    by edku822

    On latest iOS 11.3 the error message says “we’re having trouble accessing the internet...” while on WiFi 10MBPS.

  • Not loading

    by Kkissior

    Saying that I need internet connection, which I clearly have. It’s not loading. I’ve tried restarting it and re downloading it, and nothing has worked

  • Ears are bleeding

    by LaceMeUpLouKY

    I can’t listen to slacker and it keeps giving me the same message about not having Internet, when I clearly do. Plus I can’t get any help................... may we be of assistance is needed.

  • App says no signal with full bars LTE

    by Disgruntleduser86

    Not sure what happened within the last few days but I can no longer use the app. It says that there is no signal when I have full bars and every other streaming service I have works just fine. Please fix this issue ASAP as I pay a monthly fee for premium services. Would be glad to delete the review once issue is fixed, thank you 👍🏼👍🏼

  • My fave app is no longer

    by Harry Nutts

    Love slacker. But after this latest update, not so much. Crashes, takes forever for songs to buffer and play even with great cell signal. Fix it, PLEASE!! Edit: Still no fix.

  • Disappointed

    by Toodlergr

    Lost all ability to use even at home on my network. Paid for premium subscription and can't use it, not even off line listening.

  • Worked great for years

    by Cowboy Jonny

    All the sudden today it will not open the app and play music very frustrating considering that I pay 10$ a month

  • What happened?

    by hotredgt

    This was the only app that I could listen to my music offline without Wi-Fi. It stopped working today. What happened?!?

  • Will not open the app at all!!!

    by Cassia149

    The app won’t open! Says it’s offline, it’s not!!! Tried with 5 bars LTE and nothing! Tried with full bars WiFi and nothing!! 😡😡😡😡😡😡

  • Does not work

    by 85ZingoGTR

    Upon opening app, I get a screen that tells me to check my connection. I have full bars and wifi working fine. As a result, I cannot get passed this first screen. So far a non-functioning app.

  • Poor

    by MommaK121712

    Since i have updated the app , i can not listen to anything it is always trying to buffer or telling me there is no connection. Whether i am on wifi or using my phones data i have uninstalled the app and reinstalled and still does not work!!! it’s ridiculous . i have had slacker for 3 years now and use to love it until now!

  • Really!!!

    by bdurdy30

    I can listen to any other app but the one I’m paying for!!!🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

  • Constant Crashing and Unable to connect

    by Veilwolf89

    I loved slacker on android but I have been plagued by a myriad of problems while on the iPhone which has caused me to drop my premium plan not being able to connect or getting crashes after listening to a few songs. I don’t know if it is the update but I am very unhappy with how slacker is handling this. Side Note My Wifi as well as Celluar Service is flawless this Has to be on Slackers end even with the troubleshooting options support sent me it did nothing.

  • New issue

    by nahdhdu

    From my iPhone 7, with most recent software update to phone, I am unable to connect to Slacker app or slacker website to report. Help!

  • Works once and a while

    by Lol fun love it

    Spotty support

  • Issues with App

    by sewest82

    A few months ago I had issues being able to skip songs. I pay per month so I can have more flexibility. Anyways, I reached out to support because I got a notification about ”skipping too many times”. They said that even when you pay, they can still step in and prevent you from skipping songs. Total BS but I stayed. Today I go to listen and the app won’t load. I wanted to reach out to support but I got an error. It’s just this particular app not working.

  • No internet connection retry error

    by Ozarkbbq

    App not working on my iPad 4. Checked all settings, works on other devices and all plus iPad ARE connected to my wifi. what changed? Not supporting past iOS versions?

  • Annoying

    by Kayleen0913

    After a few songs it stops working. I usually have to shut down the app and restart it.
