Slacker Radio Reviews

Frustrated from ky

Offline no longer refreshes  Frustrated from ky  2 star

Lately the offline playlist won’t refresh. It will start, go to 15%, and then shut down. I pay for the subscription but it isn’t working. Not sure if it’s a glitch but it needs to be fixed.


Can’t cancel. Send help.  RebekahCMH  2 star

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.


A must!  Kokobutter1  5 star

This is my absolute favorite music app. When I had an issue with my offline, they fixed it within two days. We pay for premium, but even without, it’s amazing!!


Ehhh  Stevo5bone  2 star

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


Same adds over and over  kd.sanders  4 star

I don’t mind listening to adds, but I’m so tired of hearing about Cheryl’s She Shed. Please get a variety of adds! It’s literally the same 4 over and over. Other than that, love Slacker. It’s all I use!

The best just keeps getting better!  Kurt's Krap  5 star

I’ve been using Slacker since their beginning and it just gets better every year. As a music service Slacker blows its radio like competitors out of the water. Pandora and Sirius XM don't come close to the variety and programming on offer. Stations can be customized with DJs, news and sports. For less than $4 a month you can get rid of the ads. And if you're willing to pay the $10 for premium you can get something comparable to Apple or Spotify. The app is gorgeous and a joy to use. (And it’s an Alex Jones free zone!)


Uninformed price upgrade  KSM273  2 star

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.


Newbie  CLP14  3 star

I cancelled my Spotify family plan after the company signed Alex Jones hate speech show, Infowars. I found Slacker didn’t host podcasts at all and gave them a try, jumping right into their $10 monthly plan. I wish they offered a family plan but it’s worth the switch to support a company that doesn’t promote nuts. I’m finding the app not nearly as easy to navigate and use as any other music streaming app I’ve used. I’m going to stick with it for a while and see how it goes. There’s a seamless ease about using SoundCloud, Spotify, Apple Music, and even the old Pandora that Slacker Radio doesn’t possess. When paying for a music streaming, I want to be able to easily curate my own playlists without multiple steps.

Cash to the money

Great👍  Cash to the money  4 star

I hate when people complain about 3.99 to 9.99 which is stupid because it’s the same thing as Spotify at 7.99 but they need to add some more stuff on there like some more artists. Slacker please look into this. Artists: ghostemane,pouya,$uicideboy$, and night Lovell. But I still love there app I feel like it could be bigger and better so keep improving. And the offline is so awesome but sometimes I forgot to download the music before I lost service or something. So slacker make it automatically download.

Spotty support


Issues with App  sewest82  1 star

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  Ozarkbbq  1 star

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?


Awesome app  Thought013  5 star

Especially great for dance music and gym listening.


Three Stars  jgj7263  3 star

Crashes and freezes constantly. But I love the “new” stations that play brand new music. You’ll never get brand new stuff on Pandora.


Annoying  Kayleen0913  2 star

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


Good, but...  SuperBrown  1 star

Why is it I can ban an artist on Roku but not on the mobile app? You guys keep mixing Limp Bizkit in with great music and it's ruining the experience. And no matter how many times I hit 🚫 you guys keep on playing them. No one should ever have to listen to Limp Bizkit. Ever.


Great music  des500  5 star

This app is easy to use and provides consistent music. Thank you

Timeless GFX

Great alternative  Timeless GFX  4 star

I just found Slacker and it’s my new go to music app. Here’s my take on the others (I listen to 90’s hip hop, new pop and R&B, and lots of EDM): Pandora - repetitive Spotify - radio is not great Apple Music - radio is bad Slacker - radio is really good and plays lots of good songs I never heard. The only negative is the UI, it’s difficult to navigate and hard to know where you are in the app. Buttons can also use a redesign, a mix of sharp corners and rounded ones clash a lot. Keep up the great curative songs coming!
