    I'm canceling my subscription. reasons for this. the heart is now green and hard to tell from white. when slacker ran it it's easy to tell the red vs white. my biggest issue with it is the fact they shrink the damn app when you close your phone so if you want to open your phone to skip a song you have to first click it to make it full size. WHY!!!!!! Nothing was wrong with the way it was before.

  • by edwin anderson

    not a fan of the new app as there are still a lot of bugs, for instance if you are listening to a song then close the app it keeps playing. you have to reopen the app and stop the song to get it to quit then reclose it. removing app perhaps will redownload when new bugs are worked out.

  • 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 jimmy c

    This app does not work at all on the pixel 2 XL. however it will work on the Note 9 but but I'm not liking this new layout at all it was just fine the way it was before. guess I'll just check out pandora since the developers at what was once slacker radio have absolutely lost their minds.

  • The truth

    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.

  • by Mr S G George

    why should you give me an application installed into my phone system and now in another country I can't use it because it can't be used in this region ?? Then you can't still permit me to uninstall the app from my phone ?? That's not fair.. since I can't use this app in the country where I am currently residing , give me permission to uninstall it . Thank you

  • 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 angela ramirez

    having the same problem as everyone else writing a review, can't even get into the app to cancel my subscription, I'm not going to pay for something i can't use or enjoy!!! where do i go to cancel? very disappointing slacker!!!

  • 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 michael fitzcharles

    music stops after a song if I am lucky... app keeps crashing on me. I try to listen to music when I am cleaning but can't clean as I have to stop and reopen the app. This app used to work before it turned into LiveXLive. Wish I could give no stars

  • by Frozen Camel

    4/24 It is not new design. You cant made app half with old designs and half with something else.I get it you dont want to piss your custimers with totally new design but this half backed one looks funny and not profesional. Also why half of app is black and other is white? Dosent make any sense to me. Setting needs to be redisigned becouse now looks like out of space. Hope this helps. 4/19 New design suck! Lookin for another redio and dont bother spaming me Slacker i wont contact you via email.

  • by mojoe jojoe

    I have not had a chance to explore the new version. I used to listen to slacker all the time till I listened to garth Brooks radio for hours and never heard one Garth brooks song. so I switched back to pandora. I'm also having trouble it will not let me into the app to even check it out to see if I want to give it a chance or not.

  • by Robert Pavkov III

    The latest update on 4/23/19 is garbage. I canceled my subscription bc it will no longer open on my phone, customer service is a joke now... I have used slacker for 5 years or more and now its worthless!! Dont waste your time!!

  • Horrible

    by Dave804

    Slacker WAS a great app. You should’ve rolled LiveX whatever in to Slacker not Slacker in to this disaster. This is horrible branding. Not only that but they have needlessly complicated the UI. This was a huge mistake and it’s dropping like a rock in iPhone ratings list because people don’t like it. Look, we are your user base and we are telling you it’s a horrible experience next to the old Slacker because it is horrible. Video content is weak and should have been an add-on to Slacker not the main feature. MTV does music videos. We didn’t want that or we would’ve downloaded their app. We want to LISTEN to music in our cars, in the gym, at work, on a boat or at the beach not watch poorly filmed video clips with terrible audio. Horrible idea and you ruined Slacker in the process.

  • by Darryle Cash

    Fix the issues with vehicle interface and I will go back to loving it! Since the switch to LiveXLive I can play music thru my factory truck radio, but I no longer have the head unit display title or artist, or even acknowledge where the music is originating.

  • by Lydia Belaire

    Y'all have a whole new platform and still can't keep banned artists out of my playlist, smh. And the search doesn't work properly- if you search an album with various artists it won't show up. You have to search the name of a song, search albums featuring the song, then find the album you want.

  • 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.

  • 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 The Ambulance

    I have had slacker for years, when I got my note 9, last September, I took the promo plus upgrade for a year for what is now like 120per year for like 20ish. I can tell you the entire video section is not wanted and you are now too expensive. for what was great, now is just meh turned to bloatware on many new devices, ones with huge hard drives to load Infinite amounts of music. . .

  • by Pat R

    Doesnt deserve one star! Worst customer service EVER!!! UPDATE 04/22/19: That's the problem. I've had an open ticket for a week with only one robo-response despite multiple requests for help. UPDATE 5-7-19; yea, you sobs are so helpful. I tell you if I'm going to be treated so poorly by you, you can just give my money back and so you decided to give my money back. kma you jerks.

  • 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.

  • by Dave Piehl

    After the forced upgrade from the Slacker app, now this app never starts. Only see the splash screen and then, nothing. Please release a fix asap. This is my go-to app for motivation at the gym.

  • 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 Aaron Simonson

    What the heck? My Slacker a count doesnt work at all since this new LiveXLive change.....i pay monthly and can not use the new app! Very disappointed....a few more days of this and I am outta here!

  • by Brittany Hernandez

    Hate the Change! I've had slacker for a while but recently updated and and the LiveXLive is horrible i try to listen to an artist songs and when I press next it says now creating a station similar to that song then repeats the song over and over again I skipped it because I didn't wanna listen to that song not because I wanna continuously hear it.... super annoying having my husband cancel our subscription!!!

  • Do not like ONE aspect of the new app

    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

  • 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.

  • I wish it was better

    by Primpimono

    Slacker should be the best music streaming app based on their amazing stations and custom content. But the app is so deficient, coupled with not having enough content rights to download songs, that I can’t justify paying anymore. The fact that something so simple as viewing offline content by artist is impossible shows that they are either incompetent or hamstrung by copyrights that it’s hard to justify keeping their service.

  • 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

  • Don’t buy upgrades!

    by durstyturtle

    When upgrades are purchased they remove functions given by the free version and continually play songs by artists who were banned and or has banned songs! Every station was better free. Only offer the best version if you’re going to force your customers to get it or lose their time and money. Be real slacker!

  • 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!

  • Can only be used with WiFi now.

    by msdcarson

    Since the switch to LiveXLive, I’m not able to use without using WiFi. Whereas before I could either use my data or WiFi. A lil disappointed. Can not afford the monthly subscription. Update: error message every since the change this week can not play using either cellular data or WiFi.

  • Not what I expected

    by tom8807

    App looks nice and the controls are ok... I find it to be BS that I paid 9.99 for the premium subscription and it still plays random commercials, ya there’s no pop up ads but if you’re advertising no ads then there shouldn’t be any including the commercials. I think I’ll stick to pandora

  • “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!

  • This was a different app? Slacker?

    by Gilloolers

    I am not familiar with this app but it seems like it just replaced a different app on my phone... honestly really sketchy. Probably just a whole design change but I definitely will be uninstalling this and will not reinstall unless I need it in the future. Never used slacker just was bloatware that transferred from a different phone.

  • 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?

  • by Scott Waite

    Always loved slacker radio. This new change must have some sort of algorithm to make it think that if you don't touch your phone or app after every song it is just laying there unaccompanied. Pretty annoying at work when I have to stop what I'm doing and touch the app after every song. Might have to look for something else to listen to. [edit: problem is when I lock the phone or the phone locks at screen timeout, Samsung galaxy s9+ unlocked]

  • by SeventhSamurai72

    I don't want this app, it's bloatware on my phone.

  • by amy roquet

    I switched to another service my husband uses to save money some years ago but kept the Slacker app because of all the previous years of building playlists as a paid subscriber. Was worried for a second when I saw an app name I didn't recognize updated - no notification about Slacker changing what so ever. Opened the app and gave it a chance but I have to say that the UI/UX is a TERRIBLE downgrade from what it once was. Such a shame.

  • by Horus Carlson

    useless bloatware, wish i could give zero stars

  • Loved Slacker, LiveXLive is buggy

    by 777Ed777

    I totally loved Slacker but this new version has been a disappointment with all of the bugs. I hope it is worked out soon. Every car I have with CarPlay is just about useless with LXL right now.

  • lol what is LiveXLive?

    by LOLZ ☠

    that is the dumbest name ever, is it supposed to be live x live? or live by live? or live times live? anyway slacker was dookie before “LIVEXLIVE” took over, and i’m gonna keep the app so my rating stays 😴💤

  • Waste of Time

    by !@# JOE $#@!

    I downloaded and gave it a try. I was happy for awhile. It stopped so I restarted the app. The navigation was completely different than what I first experienced. Horrible - not gonna play their games. Dumped it. Average Joe

  • I especially like it when it cuts off the song for a commercial!

    by Me1953453

    Thanks

  • Not working anymore

    by gtubdhdhdhris

    Used this app almost every day and since the last update since they changed from the slacker app to the LiveXLive thing it now will not open and play on my iPhone XR. If it’s not fixed soon I will be canceling my membership and deleting it for good

  • Bring back Slacker

    by KutterCraig

    Interface changes ruined this app. Bring back slacker.

  • Ugh!!!

    by Cachita Williams

    I hate this new merger. Who interrupts music every song just to play a silent 15 ad 2-3 times randomly throughout one song? Everything doesn’t need an update. Greed is the latest update! I’m switching after 7+ years!

  • Do not like ONE aspect of the new app

    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

  • Works on iPad NOT on iPhone 8

    by Sentinel64

    I get a network error on iPhone after Slacker switched to LiveXLive won’t play stations. Work on desktop and iPad though.

  • Great app until update

    by not happy with stories

    I have been using slacker for a very long time. Unfortunately, my app has not worked at all since it updated to Live x Live. I constant receive a "Network Error." I have attempted to open the app on several WIFI networks as well as my mobile network. None of this has been successful.

  • New name is horrible. What executives thought that was a good idea?

    by PinkStereoAttack

    “LiveXLive powered by Slacker” who the hell decided that was a good idea? Slacker is a well known and easily remembered name. This new crap is terrible.

  • RIP Slacker Radio

    by M & L Firearms Sales

    I love Slacker Radio. I however will not be following along with the new brand. It feels too much like when a station changes format on their listeners or a company sells out to a bigger company who promises things will remain the same and gets all jacked up in a short time. RIP Slacker Radio. Amazon Prime will become my player from here on out.

  • Junk

    by b_dub63

    Doesn’t work. Keeps saying I have network issue. Didn’t have one until the update.

  • Go back to just slacker

    by Hawiianhobo

    If I could give this app a no star I would but you done messed up. When it was slacker it was great. I used it every day. Since the update I have lost all my saved music and it will not play any music either. Say lost connection whether I’m on WiFi or not. Will be canceling my subscription.

  • This update

    by Jay19851968

    I so far not a fan of this new update we’re are my old playlists 👎

  • Live x live

    by nathan moran

    Thanks to there new “MAJOR” change I can’t listen to my music anymore in highly disappointed and considering canceling my subscription with them

  • Don’t like the recent update

    by grahamzo

    Love slacker radio, however this new update makes it overly difficult to find a song.

  • Can only be used with WiFi now.

    by msdcarson

    Since the switch to LiveXLive, I’m not able to use without using WiFi. Whereas before I could either use my data or WiFi. A lil disappointed. Can not afford the monthly subscription. Update: error message every since the change this week can not play using either cellular data or WiFi.

  • The truth

    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.

  • Not happy with new app

    by JK334

    All of the sudden my app keeps closing and I keep getting a network error. I am also constantly having to enter a security code. Even when I enter the code it gives me another one to enter, as if I’m not entering the right thing. So far this LiveXLive gets a big thumbs down from me.

  • Awful update - Unusable

    by Jlo871802

    Since the Slacker switch to LiveXLive I can’t get the app to play anything. All it tells me is there are Network issues. Why do people always have to ruin good things? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I hope it was worth it, because from what I can tell you are losing subscribers by the hundreds even thousands. If you are thinking of downloading pass and find something else.

  • This was a different app? Slacker?

    by Gilloolers

    I am not familiar with this app but it seems like it just replaced a different app on my phone... honestly really sketchy. Probably just a whole design change but I definitely will be uninstalling this and will not reinstall unless I need it in the future. Never used slacker just was bloatware that transferred from a different phone.

  • Garbage...

    by Rusty T. Bone

    ...is what this app just turned into.

  • Why LiveXLive

    by cwhitedad

    Many year Slacker user and defender, after change to LiveXLive network error will not allow use. Maybe my kids were correct...Spotify better?

  • Another one bites the dust

    by Mandar678

    That name is so generic and forgettable. When I saw all that modern garbage upon opening the app, I was completely turned off.

  • No longer works. Slacker is dead.

    by We've_been_had

    After stopping and restarting the app. 5 times, I give up. It will not run. I’ve deleted it.

  • I Hate The New Name

    by Hawaii Skydiver

    I won’t be renewing my subscription.

  • New App Update

    by Paul240

    With this new update, app is telling me network issues on both my phone and iPad. Guess this wasn’t meant for prime time.

  • Don’t buy upgrades!

    by durstyturtle

    When upgrades are purchased they remove functions given by the free version and continually play songs by artists who were banned and or has banned songs! Every station was better free. Only offer the best version if you’re going to force your customers to get it or lose their time and money. Be real slacker!

  • When did they put this many ads into it

    by TwoWheelFix

    How to get deleted, 6 ads to one song... terrible amount of ads and I don’t need 3 ads on how you are changing the name of your app in under 5 minutes.

  • needs serious improvement

    by 0xevelyn

    I really wanted to like Slacker because it has some more obscure music that I can’t find on Spotify, Apple Music, etc, and I used to listen to it all the time back when it was AOL Radio, but there’s a number of problems with both the app and the service: 1. iOS password autofill is not supported, so you can’t use an automatically generated password. 2. Passwords are limited to 16 characters, which is absolutely insane in 2019. 3. While playing music to a Homepod, every 30 seconds or so the music will pause for no reason, requiring you to open the app and resume playing. 4. The play-on-demand and offline listening premium features exclude a lot of the content (including entire stations!) and this is not at all made obvious when signing up. Unfortunately, it seems most of the content unavailable for play-on-demand/offline is the same rare content that differentiates Slacker from other music services. Overall, because of issue #4 I cannot justify using Slacker over Spotify or Apple Music. And unfortunately because of issues #1-3 it’s barely usable even in the free version.

  • I wish it was better

    by Primpimono

    Slacker should be the best music streaming app based on their amazing stations and custom content. But the app is so deficient, coupled with not having enough content rights to download songs, that I can’t justify paying anymore. The fact that something so simple as viewing offline content by artist is impossible shows that they are either incompetent or hamstrung by copyrights that it’s hard to justify keeping their service.

  • Not what I expected

    by tom8807

    App looks nice and the controls are ok... I find it to be BS that I paid 9.99 for the premium subscription and it still plays random commercials, ya there’s no pop up ads but if you’re advertising no ads then there shouldn’t be any including the commercials. I think I’ll stick to pandora

  • 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.

  • News???

    by Wtatu

    Why the &@*# are you playing news on my paid music station!???? Guess I’ll be going back to Pandora.

  • 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....

  • Favorites option does not work

    by Scotchemoe

    This app allows you to filter songs to only listen to those that you have favorited - it never ever works.

  • Can’t uninstall

    by ftccrcc

    Slacker keeps coming up on my sleep screen, & I can’t see my other notifications. No way to uninstall slacker once it’s downloaded?

  • Frustrating

    by Sgrhopearl

    I’ve paid 9.99 to get the premium service, however, I’m still only getting access to Slacker Premium. I’ve cancelled the 3.99 subscription and will have no choice but to cancel the 9.99 option if no resolution is reached. My account is under my Facebook name Kim Mullen

  • Ad city

    by Skfoamsndjlfmrnwjdk

    Absolutely riddled with ads.

  • 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. .

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • iOS 12

    There’s no Chromecast audio or Casting with this new version of apple update I chatted with slacker radio they said there aware of the problem They are working on issues retaining last Apple update Boo hoo for now. Thanks

  • Feeling cheated

    by toxicf

    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.
