    Use spotify instead. App doesn't work as stated. worst music app I've used and support reps seem are useless. Do yourself a favor and use somethin decent like Spotify. unable to download music with this app with a paid subscription . Support is clueless as to why and have no idea how to fix the issue...

    Went to listen to slacker since Pandora isn't working, and now they only play like 30 second clips now of songs? Would skip through a song and only play about 30 seconds of each song before it would skip to the next. Not sure if because I haven't updated it because the comments about the new version crashing or if they just made it so you can't listen for free anymore on mobile

    This app is horrible. It crashes so much that I can't at all listen to the music that I want to listen to without it crashing on me

    Pros: Offers a good sized music selection with very short commercial breaks. I don't hear songs repeated very often if at all with daily use, unlike Pandora. Cons: Pinned stations take you to the main page instead of playing that station as soon as you touch the tile. Crashes every now and then, my phone also forced a restart using this app at one point. Audio quality is suspect at random on some stations. Slow as molasses opening and resuming from unlock. It would be nice if this app was "smarter" and paused the music altogether once you get out of your car (like Pandora and TuneIn) and don't get surprised by music blasting from your phone's speakers a half an hour later when your unlock it, creating a very awkward moment.

    Love the new UI changes, though the controls to remind me a bit too much of iOS. Despite the lovely visual upgrade, use of tiles in the UI, and general performance improvements -- the app still has intermittent crashes. So far: Switching to app from drop down media controls, switching to another app and back while in the settings menu, changing stations. I haven't tried starting up without data service (a common crash on the former app), but I have a feeling that has been fixed. Edit: Most of the issues have been fixed. However all my cached radio stations gain negative "skip" opportunities as they play. Im currently at -26. Still wish the UI evoked more of a Metro feel.
