Security check
by Berkfather on 2020/08/03 18:33
Fails every time I try to log in and goes to a never ending cycle of typing in the security code. Slacker was a lot better before the updated LiveXLive app. Please fix this.
Logging in
by Rodax3 on 2020/07/30 10:08
Every time now since I updated I can’t get past the security log in. I enter in the code and I just pops back up again. Why do you need to enter a security code of a music app?? Makes no sense!
Booo!
by #sosadpanda on 2020/07/27 23:35
I loved, loved, loved Slacker!! But then it changed to this and I haven’t been able to listen to anything, I don’t pay for this thing not to work. Please tell me what to do to fix this or I’m out I’m afraid 😞
Horrible
by 0a00a00 on 2020/07/19 04:33
I deleted the app and they still charge me
Where's the beef!
by 4starlite55 on 2020/07/17 03:19
Livexlive is better than pandora but needs growing still. It is still behind spotify and apple music when it comes to artists licensing on demand items. I like to see more on demand artists contents for example why does Spotify and Tidal gets to have access to all th Beatles artist solo and you dont? George Harrison is not on demand. You need to get more artists on demand. I also like to see Jazz videos and concerts as well as music from current French Artists that updated more often. A top 40 of jazz music like you have for the weekly top 40. You have the potential to be on top if you do what Spotify and Apple music does. Bring it on make it happen. Dont be left behind. I see lots of international artists with new albums and even the Rolling Stones has a new cut. You dont have it yet it's been out tor a while. Stop slacking. Also needs lyrics.
Very best all around music service
by gpinne on 2020/07/02 22:03
Best variety of songs at a bargain price!
Problematic Ads
by NCR MASTER RACE on 2020/06/28 21:16
As a member of the live music community, it is my obligation to advocate for an inclusive society where we can all get blasted and go to live music without any worries about racism. First thing I see on this app is a Trump Pence ad. I was gonna spend some money on this app, definitely planned on it until a saw this. Stop promoting a problematic administration.
Great Fun
by Jo Jo Starbucks on 2020/06/28 13:47
Love this free version.
Skip to the end 4 the point
by crumb of Cookie on 2020/06/25 07:03
I have used this developer since Milk music came free on Samsung’s Phones. Now I have apple and looked for Slacker and came across this. I bought it for $19.99 a year and that was a few features not ALL Available Features/Premium Feature, I felt duped and I would have gladly paid $40 were it offered up front in obvious terms I can live with these few features because for the most part it serves my needs until lockdown passes and I’m required to be under more stressors and higher demands for my sanity 🤪. My question is 🤔, does prime use the sub par algorithms I have currently? When playing my favorites and I have different genres like toddler music and adult contemporary I will get stuck listening to my children’s music it falls within the same grouping but I would have it be filed away under a separate list and that should be easy to write within the code as well as a color code for that folder. For example 💛 my yellow favorites are for with my children in the car because what Parent doesn’t feel like they’re living in a yellow submarine 🚌 driving children around? 🤷🏻‍♀️ like I said 🤪. So the adds are manageable and I like hearing about Macy’s stores 🛍 being open during 2020. 🤣⏳end of time wasted⌛️🤑🤑🤑 😁To the point😝 First, Tell me what features you can offer at different levels in bold areas and clear language. Secondly, you need to further grow and develop your App code to take customer satisfaction through the roof and provide the ultimate listing experience.
Red was the best.

I’m hooked , I listen to all my music here. Can’t see myself switching.
The best and lowest priced $3.99
by Bigpoppahurtm on 2020/06/16 13:21
I’ve been using it for years and it’s only gotten better.
Frustration is at peak with this app.
by Kokobutter1 on 2020/06/08 00:47
This app used to be my everything, it always worked, and it had almost any song. But as time has gone on, my music stops playing randomly, and I have to close out the app, and then re open. And it also won’t play a certain song on my playlist. If I click the green button, it plays, but I can’t chose a certain song. So not only does my music randomly stop, but I can’t even play a song that I want. I just have to shuffle until I find what I want
No better than any other radio
by Akvavit82 on 2020/06/07 15:14
If you’re listening to anything that is or was popular, the song selection on a given station is just as bad as a terrestrial radio station. Expect to hear zero tracks that weren’t singles and lots of repeats.
Name change???
by Gat45or on 2020/06/05 00:29
I have always been a fan of slacker radio. I’ve had a subscription since 2007/08 roughly and have loved everything about. I am not the biggest fan of the new name change though. When people ask me what I am listening to, live by live doesn’t have a great ring to it and sounds more like a podcast than slacker radio did. My suggestion would be to go back to slacker or come up with a better name change than live by live...give me time and I’ll come up with something!
Could be much better
by tasaman on 2020/05/24 05:01
I like to listen to music. In between I have to listen to liberal crybabies. All of the DJs that are on the rock stations are a bunch of whining Trump hating libtards. Stick to music and stay out of politics and my review would be much much better. Oh, not one single conservative talk show in the talk section. Hmmmmm. Yeah.
Ticket system is broke
by Cubby K on 2020/05/23 20:49
DO NOT USE. Until they fix their ticket system they do not carry from your web browser to the app no matter what ya do. Have bought the same ticket three times and it fails to recognize it aka I am somehow STILL not a ticket holder. Never again. Yuck
Option to like a song outside of app
by BibliophileKate on 2020/05/18 02:36
Wish there was a way to like a song on the lock screen or notification bar, etc that way I don’t have to keep going back into the app...usually to discover I already liked it
playing favorites
by nator tator on 2020/05/17 00:30
When ayibg favorite could you please not suggest songs and use it as a play list of what you Hart in other stations artist exc.... That would be great and when you leave the app and com back at the bottom is a square in right corner of station played last could you make an option to turn it off if you do t want it or on if you do? Thanks!!!
Overhaul
by Kevin6812 on 2020/05/13 16:55
How about giving fine tuning a makeover
Some good, some bad mostly just ok.
by Svtigi on 2020/05/06 19:16
I have had slacker now liveX for a few years now and I have continue to subscribe because of the great random music algorithm it has, and the amazing stations with the DJ. The app it self has a lot of small things that can be frustrating to deal with, such as not having a restart bottom in the custom stations and if you open up the list of songs thinking that you can just hit the first song and be ok.....but no it just starts a new station from that song. At the end of the day it’s like most of the streaming stations in terms on songs.
Apple Watch???
by VegasGirl71 on 2020/05/03 10:36
Love this apps. I wish I can be able to download on my Apple Watch.
Amazing

I absolutely love this app huge win. Well done slacker!
Fix the crashing
by Sarcastimus on 2020/04/30 00:22
Every single time a Gieco commercial tries to play it locks the app up. This is extremely annoying.
Poor Support
by James A. H. on 2020/04/29 12:05
I reported a corrupt song a couple years ago and was told it would be handled. I just heard the same corrupted song today. How hard is it to remove a song from circulation?!? I was told there are multiple copies of the song - great! Why don’t you redirect to the good copies of the song or take a copy of a good one and rename it to take the place of the bad one. It seems there are multiple solutions to the problem and none of them have been utilized. Very disappointed. Other than that, it seems to be a decent music app.
Better than Pandora
by Jackfrancis 100 on 2020/04/22 16:46
Stations have more variety great service
Dope
by Azalia907 on 2020/04/22 16:21
Near perfection, easy to use, well rounded music app and the live content is awesome.
Not user friendly
by drummerbronx on 2020/04/21 04:50
After adding my favorite song to a play list,!I have to wait until end of song then add another. I’m paying 9.99 . I just cancelled. Very disappointed. All old music in 2020. Rip off.
Awesome

Have to keep app open
by Gage51desoto on 2020/04/11 18:34
I guess you have to leave the app open and make sure your screen doesn’t close or the music stops. Very annoying
Great Listenig
by VF-Seattle on 2020/04/06 00:51
Always a good selection of Jazz, always good new stuff to hear. Thanks.
Horrible
by Dave804 on 2020/04/05 04:22
Slacker WAS a great app. Someone’s ego and pride at LiveXLive whatever it’s called ruined a great app. This was a huge mistake to merge Slacker with livex and it’s a horrible user experience next to the old Slacker app. Video content is weak and should have been an add-on to Slacker and clearly not enough to wipeout Slacker and replace it with Livex whatever it’s calling itself! People want to LISTEN to music. They don’t want to watch poorly filmed video clips with horrible audio and awkward unknown amateur interviewers. This rebranding was a horrible idea and you ruined Slacker in the process. Good thing they cleared the reviews for you so your ratings look better then they actually are. But that’s ok. People are smart, they will figure it out for themselves.
I Appreciate It
by DomSpar on 2020/04/05 00:12
I heard this in another review, but I think it’s so important I’ll repeat it: LiveXLive is like Sirius XM, but better in literally every way. (This is all considering the Plus tier which I highly recommend). Unlike Sirius XM, LiveXLive is cheaper, ad-free, customizable, and skip-able. Also, you know how Sirius XM DJs can go on and on and on about none sense? Yeah, that doesn’t happen here. YES, there are still DJs, but it’s short and sweet and not wasting my time. Now, I have LiveXLive Plus and TIDAL HiFi While not the most economical pairing, I appreciate it because I get everything that’s great with TIDAL, plus awesome ad-free radio for music discovery. That music discovery is crucial because even Spotify radio doesn’t match LiveXLive - it’s just not as complete. Don’t get what's so nice about Sirius XM? It’s great as background noise while working or hanging out around the house, and unlike most radio, there’s no ads. With LiveXLive you might find a new favorite, or at least a tolerable tune, but in the off chance that it completely misses the mark, you can skip! Why the 4-stars? I can’t login over my home wifi - I have to go over my data connection. It’s the weirdest, most annoying thing and something I’ve never encountered before. Your mileage may vary. Anyways, give the Plus version a serious try, maybe it’s something you’ll appreciate and value!
Needs smart speaker support!
by Cagleman1 on 2020/03/27 22:53
This service is great. It just badly needs Alexa and Google Home support. Just about every other service is way ahead of them in this regard. Glitchy since last update as well! Fix it, Jesus!
Constantly freezes or shuts downs, maybe cuz I don't pay for it
by Jaimee1699 on 2020/03/22 18:59
When I first open app it'll play like 3-4 songs, then it'll freeze on me & I have a VERY hard time even closing the app, then like 5 mins later it'll play, but not where it left off, then it'll start freezing during a song. It'll freeze probably 3-5 times then it eventually shuts down & goes to my home screen! Idk if it does this cuz I won't pay the subscription or what, but I use to be able to listen for free with no issues!
Song lyrics
by VinVegas1 on 2020/03/20 18:58

Dead spots
by _ŒÂ◊ on 2020/03/08 05:32
Needs to cache the next couple songs for dead cell spots.
Good music selection
by flowbe81 on 2020/03/05 14:18
Too bad it crashes so much. I mostly listen while I drive and I can’t be fiddling with my phone while I drive to open it again all the time. Even when I stream on my computer at home the stream will just freeze up and I have to go navigate away from their site and then back again to get it working again.
Is this app even still in business??
by niathenikebirthmarkgirl on 2020/03/03 16:04
It’s ridiculous that I look for an artist and add a radio station from them or their song and it’s completely of another genre .. I tried to look for Koffee(reggae) and her station is only playing R&B ........ I used to live when my this was slacker radio but it still needs sooooooo much more improvement this is ridiculous there’s no upkeep of this app
Easier access to sleep timer?
by r3j1265 on 2020/02/27 16:52
I love the music selection on LiveXLive, but find the app hard to navigate. In particular, I would like to be able to reach the sleep timer function more quickly and easily. The app has been annoying me so much lately that I’ve started looking at other music streaming services, even though I don’t really want to switch.
I love this app
by Cornell T on 2020/02/22 16:47
It always the music I’m searching for
Propaganda radio app
by Para7rooper on 2020/02/13 00:58
Worst radio app ever! I pay for plus and still get freakin commercial non stop to include this liberal ABC news network that is completely one sided and half truths to fit a narrative. Straight garbage!
Better than all!
by Jermyn Parra on 2020/02/02 15:33
Finally. A streaming service I’m happy with. And nothing makes me happy. In fact, I’m usually miserable and unhappy about everything. Except LiveXLive. It’s the best!
The best way to get through the day.

It’s good when it works
by Smurglel328 on 2020/01/15 22:13
Usually I have a pretty good experience with this app but for whatever reason every time I try to download music offline it just doesn’t download, it will go up to six percent then just give up downloading and I am not sure if this is because of the internet or something to do with the app either way it bothers me. Another problem is for some reason out of nowhere it would just sign me out then I have to sign back then download the music again and it’s such a pain to go back and download it again as it’s a 50/50 shot if it’s going to work or not. That should wrap up the problems with this app.
Took slacker and destroyed it!
by TNT030405 on 2020/01/15 17:06
Had slacker premium for years. Got off slacker for a year. Came back to this “streaming service” that once was the glory of slacker... now trash. Uninstalled! Trash playlists! Freezes all the time so I have to close the app and miss out on certain songs. I don’t care what they say, they changed something!! Slacker was the pandora killer...
Awesome app
by Mguchugyu on 2020/01/07 13:07
I love this app. It works so great and you have so many choices of types of music. They even have Christmas and Halloween songs. You should totally buy LiveXLive!
Crashing
by DeFae on 2020/01/06 19:50
I’ve been with Slacker for years and loved it. Now, as LiveX, the app will not stop crashing, skipping songs, stopping in the middle of songs and losing connection on WiFi and data. Even the website is poor quality now. It takes FOREVER to load, it freezes, also skips songs and there is a 5-10 second pause in between songs. I’ve canceled my subscription because of this. The app and site have become too frustrating to use.
Worst app ever!!!
by Music is all... on 2019/12/29 02:10
Worst app ever!!! You get nothing for the $19.99 a year.... don’t even consider this one. I got fooled thinking that I could get offline listening and some other benefits... also very difficult to use, not good variety of music, etc... not enough words to say, DO NOT GET IT!!!!
Banana
by hdhh bshshshahs on 2019/12/10 00:59
Good app every like=1 banana
Subscription
by ameechelle on 2019/12/08 00:57
I paid the $9.99 to get the ad free, unlimited skips, ability to listen to songs on demand, etc. The money was taken out of my account but I can’t utilize any of the perks of paying. Otherwise I haven’t had any issues in the past except for a few songs here and there not being in a the database or able to be played on demand.
Rip off app.
by kain95 on 2019/12/07 23:32
I stopped using this app and thought I stopped payment to them. But nope still being charged for a app. I haven’t used in a really long time months 9 of them $4.34 for months times it by 9 Total of being ripped off $39.06. I’m getting Paypal involved to get my payment back.
Buffering.. Buffering... Buffering
by Gruvedaddy on 2019/12/07 14:53
Been a Slacker premium subscriber since 2009 and haven't had any buffering issues until they switched to XliveX. I have 400mb download wifi and still get constant buffering, and yes i always update to the latest version. Also it takes a lot longer to refresh my downloaded content then ever before almost like they have insufficient servers to provide the content. As much as I'd hate to lose the thousands of songs I've liked and disliked and stations and playlists I've created if this buffering bs continues i will cancel my subscription. This is one of the reasons I've kept my free Pandora account active, just in case Slacker went under which appears to be happening. Very bummed about this but i'll give XliveX another few weeks to straighten it out and if they don't I'm gone and I'll give Tidal or Apple music a shot.
Adds in middle of songs and after almost every song...
by bobobbing on 2019/11/27 23:16
What is up with all the adds! It wasn’t like this at first but recently between almost every song and sometimes stopping songs for it! Oh can’t forget the random pauses. Fix all this and I’ll give five stars.
Buffering and more buffering
by Schmitty413 on 2019/11/21 09:26
I’ve been a premium sub for five years and just cancelled my subscription today. I gave up my 1000+ playlists. My customized stations. And more. Why? Because the app just decides that certain songs won’t play anymore even though they’re licensed to. They just stop and it says buffering forever. Even on WiFi or full bars I’ve emailed a few times and it’s always the same response of delete the app. Make sure it’s updated. Blah blah blah. Never had an issue when it was Slacker radio. It’s unfortunate. Now I have to create new playlists on another app. Shame.
App Crashes Constantly
by DrGlennEB on 2019/11/21 08:17
I’d like this app if only I could choose some selections without it freezing on the first one, or the bottom on each screen. Please fix it, so I can re-rate it!
Needs update
by 562_1320 on 2019/11/20 20:11

It’s the subway ad ....
by Studying221 on 2019/11/20 12:11
The ads would be fine ... if it wasn’t the same stupid subway ad. Again, and again, and again ...
Tired of the news ads
by Never using uber on 2019/11/19 12:07
For music it’s pretty good, I have enjoyed discovering new artists. I wish my favorite songs would transfer to other playlists if they are similar type music. Most of the ads are not bad for length. By far the most irritating thing about this app is the constant news updates with the focus on trump. If I’m going to pay for a music app I’ll switch to Spotify. I wish they allowed you to adjust ads to be more relevant. Like I don’t mind all the dumb ads but I don’t care to hear the same news ad every 8 minutes.
Love LiveXLive
by ShellyB5 on 2019/11/17 16:44
I listen all day at work, not only makes the day go by quickly but also puts people in good moods. I hear a lot of “wow I haven’t heard that in years. I Love It! Thank you, ShellyB.

Channels
by Dialock on 2019/11/14 02:30
I’ve downloaded so many different channels and music. Love it.
Had for years, just cancelled.
by SCMedic911 on 2019/10/30 19:03
I have had Slacker for years. That entire time I paid for premium service. I used this app daily. The other day I opened the app and saw my account was now a basic plan as opposed to premium. I emailed customer service who stated that I never had a premium account. I forwarded my iTunes subscription notice which showed I was a current premium user. I received an email back saying th over computer said differently and that I’d need to upgrade to premium. “No worries,” I thought. I could just upgrade and it would be fine. Except it wouldn’t let me upgrade since it already showed me as a premium member. I sent one more email but never got a response. So, I deleted the app, canceled my subscription, and downloaded Tidal. It is a far superior app.
Bring back Slacker!
by Itaint on 2019/10/25 22:57
This app crashes or continually buffers even on WiFi!! Useless. I came back to Slacker after trying Pandora. Unfortunately they turned it into this mess.
Garbage
by novasucks on 2019/10/23 16:09
Poor garbage. It continually freezes.
Very Frustrating
by CarltonFisk on 2019/10/18 22:45
Trying to upgrade so I can access “Count Up” series. Keep being told upgrade is “unavailable”. Customer Service not helpful. I am done trying.
Love the service, hate the app
by Door lover33333 on 2019/10/16 00:50
Been a slacker user for years, premium membership. But with the new iPhone update, I can’t log into the app for anything. I’ve contacted the website and don’t multiple password resets to no avail. Anyone else having this issue?
Added NBC journalists???
by yanni2222 on 2019/10/12 18:33
How is it that you refer to such biased commentators as journalists? What journalistic integrity do they uphold? You just had to go and find the most dishonest, low-ratings dolts on cable TV.

Great app, crashes CONSTANTLY!!!
by Sherab 108 on 2019/10/07 02:36
Crashes on an average of 2 to 6 times every time I launch it, other than that pretty good.
Great app
by Ceekay Mars on 2019/10/06 20:42
So much better than I heart, I have been using this since it was called slacker, back when it powered milk music for Samsung devices, The UI is great, the plans are cheaper but I wish there was an option you select to watch full screen ads for premium features, paying every month indefinitely just because it’s marketed as a ‘service’ to justify a reoccurring monetary commitment is a bit much. It already has on screen ads in the free version so you are already being paid for my use of the app, not sure why I wouldn’t have premium features.
Needs iOS Shortcuts support
by Aesterling on 2019/10/01 22:51
This app would be excellent if support for iOS Shortcuts and Siri was added like other apps (Pandora) have done.
lol what is LiveXLive?
by LOLZ ☠ on 2019/09/24 10:49
that is the dumbest name ever, is it supposed to be live x live? or live by live? or live times live? anyway slacker went downhill when they changed the GUI, and they never recovered, even before “LIVEXLIVE” took over, and i’m gonna keep the app so my rating stays 😴💤
Crashes constantly
by clepper83 on 2019/09/22 13:14
I use to love this app. I have listened to it for about 7 years. In the last year it has crashed not stop. If I turn it on for 10 min it would have crashed twice. I hate what had happened to it.
Doesn’t work in my car.
by Aaron Rothrock on 2019/09/20 14:03
Love it. But it doesn’t work in my Kia. Works in every other vehicle I listen to it in. But not my own personal car!
Relentless ads.....
by RDIZZO on 2019/09/20 05:00
Not only audible ads but visual ads getting in the way covering album art is a lil too much.... Used to be a great app. DELETED!
NOOO!!
by FIENEJJD RJDO on 2019/09/19 20:42
They do have Hamilton and stuff like that, but seriously?!?!! “ You only get to skip 6 songs?!?” If you haven’t heard of Musi yet go download it, they are working on getting Musi back in the App Store but GET IT when it comes back!
Trying to stop my subscription!
by 45680good game on 2019/09/17 18:09
I have been paying for this app since 2014. I downloaded it by mistake..... this company will not stop charging me! I’m calling a lawyer!
What's going on?
by lilblubird on 2019/09/13 18:21
I've had this app for years and pay for my service. This app keeps closing on me. It just shuts down out of no where. I have to completely close it and reopen it in order for it to work. It plays a couple of songs and does it ALL OVER AGAIN.🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ Anyoneelse having this problem?
This should be called Obscure Radio
by Avg Guy on 2019/09/12 13:20
What chart do you use to identify “hits”? I listened to hits of the 2000s and I only recognized one out of every five songs. I searched Sara McLaughlin all I got was interviews The Application is awesome. Technology wise it’s the best streaming music source I’ve found. A better mix of content and this would be great! 5 stars - but “b” side tracks aren’t worth listening to.
Maddening

This app drives me mad. Try and play a song and it insists on finding something else and then playing random stuff. Thank goodness for Elon!

I've been listening to this app every day since 2009 (ten years!) Please don't get rid of the Romantic Jazz station, it's become part of my life and routine, it helped me through my college years and provides soothing inspiration. I love it

Your app keeps turning off minutes after starting up. That suuuuucks
USED to be great
by RDU06 on 2019/08/14 14:18
Slacker has always struggled, in my opinion, with various generations of their app. Sometimes it was amazing and easy to use, other times it was not. But this merge with LiveXLive is AWFUL. It’s so bad that I had to restore my iPhone to a previous iOS in order to get an old backup with the old app. I’ll use this version until they force me to upgrade and then I’ll probably cancel after almost 10 years of being a premium paid subscriber. I use this service almost exclusively on my phone while driving. I’m not sure if they have figured this out yet, but most people don’t want to watch videos while they’re driving... I’m sure they feel that they’re offering additional content by this merge, but all I see is a bunch of garbage in place of a clean music interface.

Dying breed
by Flyboys 100 on 2019/08/03 02:59
After “AOL Radio” sold out to “Slacker radio” the app has gone down hill. Now with the new “LiveXLive” the app...unfortunately.... is garbage constantly crashes even with the latest and greatest devices running it. I just had to switch apps. I have been faithful to any AOL counterpart for years the famous and popular online communication system or the 90s has been taken over by so many user friendly platforms.
LiveXLive commercials
by Marlin spaz on 2019/07/28 16:03
Every 14 minutes is a commercial for Subway, that’s annoying, I will never visit Subway again. Music is great, pick a channel and customize it by liking or banning songs or artists.
Really really crapping music streaming app
by Speechless in DE on 2019/07/26 10:32
Constantly “blanks out just stops” during songs. I’m in the northeast and it’s never ending. You listen to 1 song and the next 3 are blanked out and auto skipped. Stopping the app and restarting does nothing. Previously before the “update” and name change, it happened every now and then, now the blanking out and “ buffering” is happening every time I launch it. I’ve reinstalled it and contacted their support and am told the same autobot answer every time. “We experiences an outage in your area”. So all of the northeast can’t use your app everyday? That’s a BS answer. It’s so bad anymore.
Better than Pandora
by Brent Willingham on 2019/04/03 02:17
Slacker Radio is the answer to Pandora’s increasingly bad service. Like Pandora, Slacker Radio allows you to create custom radio stations with the ability to tell the station that you either like the current playing song or that you never want to play the current playing song again. However, Slacker Radio is better at this kind of service because it allows you to listen to original recordings that are not censored and it has better quality audio. I have tried Pandora and even paid a monthly subscription, but Pandora does not play original uncensored recordings despite the fact that I turned on explicit content. Perhaps some priggish Pandora users somehow caused Pandora to ban all explicit content? Or perhaps Pandora’s algorithm is mistakingly interpreting that I somehow don’t like explicit content, despite the fact that I turned on explicit content? I’m happy that Slacker does not have this problem and that it plays original uncensored music with high quality sound. Thanks for the great music, Slacker Radio, and keep the free-spirited uncensored music going—unhindered by the moralism that has apparently infected Pandora.
So close to perfection.
by LLoose494 on 2019/02/27 03:58
I love Slacker. I actually used it religiously about 10 years ago. It has always done a great job of mixing old and new with my custom stations. I left Slacker long ago when they made all the huge interface changes. I subscribed to Pandora and never really looked back. Fast forward to this week. I decide to see what’s going on with Slacker. Plus I wanted to see if my old stations had any gems I forgot about. I downloaded the app and connected it to my car stereo. The first thing I noticed was the sound quality was way better. Everything sounded more full than my pandora music. 2nd is that unlike pandora, my phone didn’t got into “accessory mode” making it hard to control it the way I want. 3rd was the interface looks great! Much better than the old blue colors of pandora. My only thing with it is why is it so hard to get to my custom stations? I couldn’t care less about the premade stations, I want to see a list of mine the moment I open the app. Instead I have to go to my music, then scroll around until I find custom stations. It should either be there from the get go or one tap away. Another bonus that I never thought I would like... djs and little snippets of news in between songs. They are short and informative and really make it feel like a premium radio station. Remember the old XM radio? It’s similar to that. Now XM has mindless bla bla bla in between songs. This is different and they nailed it.
Improve Dash audio quality
by LAX20531 on 2018/10/27 20:25
I love Slacker. It’s awesome for those of us who don’t follow artists and want help listening to the latest content through their curated channels. That being said, Slacker has done such a poor job in marketing itself and attempting to acquire a loyal base of paid subscribers to assure its long term survival. The idea to cross market with Dash Radio seems short sighted given it’s a gratis product, but the least you could do for subscribers is to offer higher bitrate streams because the audio quality is lacking. Other than this I can’t say enough good about Slacker and send everyone I know to the platform and encourage them to subscribe to at least the low-tier subscription as it’s an excellent value. Lastly: Chromecast streaming is broken after iOS 12 and needs to be fixed.
Loss of Offline Listening in Plus
by Berlynn88 on 2018/01/02 22:25
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.
The truth
by Someone Youll Ignore on 2019/04/27 01:37
Slacker was better when it was slacker the overhaul LiveXLive did of the app is hard to navigate. Where slacker made navigating around their app easy with a side bar that sent you where you wanted these guys hide your recently played stations in a sub menu off your profile and the home page is full of their advertising no one cares about and the offline play and custom playlists stations etc are all made prominent but if you don’t use any of that the. Your stuck trying figure out how to listen to your stations you had previously. LiveXLive take a lnother look at how easy slacker made their station and take some pointers and improve the navigation and I really don’t think a lot of people care about those “shows” on that page. We just want to listen to good music we like as we go about our day. You make it easier to do that then you’ll get a loyal fan base like what slacker had. I’ll continually check back and change my review if you guys actually listen to your listeners and improve your app. If you have any questions or anything let me know. Feels like I’m talking to a wall because so far I haven’t seen you answer any reviews yet.
Worst Radio App Ever
by Jay9739 on 2018/04/13 06:46
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.
What I’ve Been Looking For!!
by fantastickkay on 2018/07/07 09:38
The one thing I miss with streaming music these days is the lack of news updates and little personal dj touches. I thought it was a pipe dream to have news included with music streaming but somehow I found the perfect app! Not only does it have an option to include news updates, it has amazing curated stations for absolutely every mood. I have a spot in my heart for the 60s Deep Dive station. I paid for it for a while, which is great to curate your own stations, but now I use the free version which only adds adverts to my experience but I can still listen to the stations I created so it’s all the same to me!
Apparently not for use in the car
by Kaorovic on 2019/07/25 23:55
The hands-free link support is dodgy at best. I don’t know who needs to hear this, but if I don’t want notices that means I don’t want notices about not receiving notices that I don’t want, especially if the notices I don’t want about the notices I don’t want to cause the app to not work correctly. The hands-free link always seems to stop working when it tries to give me a notice that I’m not receiving notices, even though I repeatedly declined notices. And when the hands-free link stops working the only way to skip a song is to open the app and skip through the app, this really brings up an advertisement that takes over I won’t play any audio at all. I understand how and support works, but I don’t understand how a music app has ads that don’t have any audio. It also seems like the more songs I favorite the less variety there is in the favorites station.
offline listening $4 —> $10... sub —> no sub
by thj4 on 2018/02/11 05:07
Big joke to put a music service up there with the higher tiers of video streaming provider. I wholly like the radio content delivery shtick. A great thing i enjoyed was to load up an older iPod, take it out with it to exercise or knock around with. Didn’t need WiFi or a SIM card, just played what was downloaded. Serving as a Walkman of old. Now, they expect you to either put the wear on my phone (and risk losing coverage if out on trails, or fork over an additional amount 1.5x the cost of the original package. I was introduced with Milk Music (which had a much superior dial channel selector) but I supported Slacker after they shut down the value added content they offered with Samsung phones. They can come back to $4 and count me a sub. Or at the least humor the process and come up with a decent lyrics display (that properly renders horizontally) or something so we’re not just getting gypped.
Disappointed
by kjs270 on 2019/06/09 03:16
Been an avid paying fan of Slacker for years until the recent big change. Now sometimes I can only play 4 or 5 songs then it just stops. Hitting pause, then play does nothing, neither does advancing to the next song. The next song shows up but doesn’t start playing it. I have to quit the program and restart it and sometimes it works and sometimes it still doesn’t work. At that point I go listen to Pandora or Google Play until Slacker decides to start working again. The old old saying, “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” really fits here. I never had a problem until now, and 3 months ago I would have given it an easy 5 star rating. Even on my computer, I use to listen to slacker for 6-8 hours without it stopping and asking me if I was still there. Now recently I’m lucky to go 90 minutes before it stops playing. Really disappointing ....
A little disappointed...
by BrownEyz72 on 2019/04/24 23:32
I have been a paid Slacker subscriber for many years...but I’m a bit disappointed with the look of the new app LiveXLive. New app should mean NEW cover art for ALL the stations. Some stations have had the same cover artist forever. I’m not a fan of the last played station window stuck in the lower corner as I browse the new site. It’s in the way. I’ve mentioned it before, but it would be nice if the people that create the playlists for stations could rotate music more frequently or add way more songs so that if one is listening during a work day, music hasn’t repeated itself numerous times. Especially if you aren’t listening to a New Release station. I give 4 stars because I am a loyal premium subscriber and I prefer slacker over all others.
Buffering.. Buffering... Buffering
by Gruvedaddy on 2019/12/07 14:53
Been a Slacker premium subscriber since 2009 and haven't had any buffering issues until they switched to XliveX. I have 400mb download wifi and still get constant buffering, and yes i always update to the latest version. Also it takes a lot longer to refresh my downloaded content then ever before almost like they have insufficient servers to provide the content. As much as I'd hate to lose the thousands of songs I've liked and disliked and stations and playlists I've created if this buffering bs continues i will cancel my subscription. This is one of the reasons I've kept my free Pandora account active, just in case Slacker went under which appears to be happening. Very bummed about this but i'll give XliveX another few weeks to straighten it out and if they don't I'm gone and I'll give Tidal or Apple music a shot.
New Review
by cmm472 on 2017/10/25 00:39
The app works really well on my iPhone and offline. I think $3.99 is a good value considering that it offers unlimited skips and no ads plus offline listening, I left Pandora for Slacker and use it in addition to my Apple Music account. I like the ABC news breaks and some of the DJs are amusing but I question their musical background; one of them introduced a Beach Boys song and called “Surfin’ USA” “Let’s Go Surfin’ Now.” One of them was talking about a Harry Nilsson cover of “One,” calling it his best original song, I think they all must be in their 20s or 30s. Regardless, there seems to be good variety and they play more deep cuts than Pandora without as much repetition. I wish that when I chose an artist I could hear that artist instead of everyone else.
Still good
by Jj131187 on 2019/07/22 02:06
It always has what I want, after 3 years with it I still love it. Just not happy with the live! I don’t like live music I want to hear the singer not the crowd. And it keeps changing the music to mix songs I want to first version more not a remix. Can y’all make it where it can be turned off. But I do really like the app it has all my favorite so I hope it never god away but please fix these things to help us keep the original music playing not screaming people or so many remixes that play over and over the same lyrics 😐

5Star
by GoNoFurther on 2017/10/04 20:48
I've used Slacker for many, many years now. If fact, I don't think they had ads for freeloaders like myself when I first started. I just listen to 'Golden Oldies', Folk and Folk-rock. Don't buy or download misic. I don't even have a lot of lists. I can't afford a monthly bill to just play music. I've tried Pand..... and other internet music apps but I've always returned to Slacker. The ads aren't bad. Hay, what do you want for free and it's better than the radio. If I could pay for music, it definitely would be Slacker.
The New updated.
by SMM1993 on 2019/07/09 01:28
When slacker first came out it was great. I purchased the premium package so I could listen to the music I wanted to listen to when I wanted to. When slacker switched to the “LiveXLive” is when it all went down hill. I could no longer search by song, you have to type in the artist. I figured it was fine because I could still at least listen to the songs I wanted without having to worry about my “skips” running out (Because I paid to do so). Now with the new update it wont even let me listen to the playlists I created or the songs that I want! Again, SOMETHING I PAID FOR!!! And now it wants me to purchase a premium package?? Yeah I already did that! Give me my money back for the first time I paid for it! May as well just use pandora....
Had for years, just cancelled.
by SCMedic911 on 2019/10/30 19:03
I have had Slacker for years. That entire time I paid for premium service. I used this app daily. The other day I opened the app and saw my account was now a basic plan as opposed to premium. I emailed customer service who stated that I never had a premium account. I forwarded my iTunes subscription notice which showed I was a current premium user. I received an email back saying th over computer said differently and that I’d need to upgrade to premium. “No worries,” I thought. I could just upgrade and it would be fine. Except it wouldn’t let me upgrade since it already showed me as a premium member. I sent one more email but never got a response. So, I deleted the app, canceled my subscription, and downloaded Tidal. It is a far superior app.
It’s good when it works
by Smurglel328 on 2020/01/15 22:13
Usually I have a pretty good experience with this app but for whatever reason every time I try to download music offline it just doesn’t download, it will go up to six percent then just give up downloading and I am not sure if this is because of the internet or something to do with the app either way it bothers me. Another problem is for some reason out of nowhere it would just sign me out then I have to sign back then download the music again and it’s such a pain to go back and download it again as it’s a 50/50 shot if it’s going to work or not. That should wrap up the problems with this app.
Great app
by Ceekay Mars on 2019/10/06 20:42
So much better than I heart, I have been using this since it was called slacker, back when it powered milk music for Samsung devices, The UI is great, the plans are cheaper but I wish there was an option you select to watch full screen ads for premium features, paying every month indefinitely just because it’s marketed as a ‘service’ to justify a reoccurring monetary commitment is a bit much. It already has on screen ads in the free version so you are already being paid for my use of the app, not sure why I wouldn’t have premium features.
Poor Support
by James A. H. on 2020/04/29 12:05
I reported a corrupt song a couple years ago and was told it would be handled. I just heard the same corrupted song today. How hard is it to remove a song from circulation?!? I was told there are multiple copies of the song - great! Why don’t you redirect to the good copies of the song or take a copy of a good one and rename it to take the place of the bad one. It seems there are multiple solutions to the problem and none of them have been utilized. Very disappointed. Other than that, it seems to be a decent music app.
I used to love it
by Sanzi797 on 2017/10/06 18:03
I had to delete the app because every time I would try to play a song . The song would stop on it’s own and when I hit play it would play for about 8 to 10 sec. then stop playing. Then when I tried your support they emailed me and told me to play with my settings. I did didn’t work so I emailed back and they closed my case saying it’s fixed when it isn’t. So delete but you need to fix this till then I’m going to an other music app
Perfect for $3.99 per month
by MacMan9876 on 2018/10/13 02:38
Why is this my favorite music app? 1. The "Plus" version with no advertising is only $3.99 per month. 2. On some stations there's short, insightful commentary by the DJ, Parker, etc. with soothing voice introducing you to music. Absolutely love this feature. 3. There is a “no-ad” ABC News station at your fingertips. 4. If you wish, you can have Slacker occasionally give short news updates from ABC News BETWEEN songs. And/or short no-ad sports updates as well. You can create the perfect ad-free radio station. So cool. 5. The user interface is clean and easily understood. In short, if you don't want to pay a service a full $9.99 per month to pick specific songs and if you don’t need to download music, then Slacker Radio is a fantastic alternative.
Some good, some bad mostly just ok.
by Svtigi on 2020/05/06 19:16
I have had slacker now liveX for a few years now and I have continue to subscribe because of the great random music algorithm it has, and the amazing stations with the DJ. The app it self has a lot of small things that can be frustrating to deal with, such as not having a restart bottom in the custom stations and if you open up the list of songs thinking that you can just hit the first song and be ok.....but no it just starts a new station from that song. At the end of the day it’s like most of the streaming stations in terms on songs.
No offline listening with paid subscription
by Mpcookie on 2018/01/03 19:11
$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.
Crappy customer service
by Nickd69420 on 2019/06/24 07:17
It all started a few months back, couldn’t use slacker off WiFi, could only use offline after I updated the app. I contacted customer service and a guy named Charles was NO help at all. Days would go by with out a email back, then he tried to blame my cell provider and we went back and forth. My buddies had the same problem, so I knew it wasn’t our phones BUT I did find out, after they released the update before “LiveXLive” it turned off data for slacker. Turned it back on, and now we all have slacker again. I’ll continue to subscribe, but I’ll never email them again for a problem.
Horrible
by Dave804 on 2020/04/05 04:22
Slacker WAS a great app. Someone’s ego and pride at LiveXLive whatever it’s called ruined a great app. This was a huge mistake to merge Slacker with livex and it’s a horrible user experience next to the old Slacker app. Video content is weak and should have been an add-on to Slacker and clearly not enough to wipeout Slacker and replace it with Livex whatever it’s calling itself! People want to LISTEN to music. They don’t want to watch poorly filmed video clips with horrible audio and awkward unknown amateur interviewers. This rebranding was a horrible idea and you ruined Slacker in the process. Good thing they cleared the reviews for you so your ratings look better then they actually are. But that’s ok. People are smart, they will figure it out for themselves.
Use to be great
by NinjaPurgs on 2018/06/24 18:12
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.
Beware bogus login -- solved
by Diana.McCall on 2019/05/02 14:14
The new app includes a bogus Apple ID login request. Not sure why they could need my Apple password, and I'm not giving it. Apparently this was a prompt to log in to iTunes, even though I was already logged in, and have never used iTunes, or any Apple music service. Fixed by going to Settings > iTunes & App Store, log out and log back in. Still don't understand the connection between Slacker/LiveXLive and iTunes...
Dropping Premium accounts
by rlovvo on 2017/12/15 01:19
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 on 2017/12/21 17:30
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!
Been using since 2010

I did the small upgrade and enjoy music without commercials and can skip through multiple genres. I add a lot of different music to my "favorites mashup" station so when I'm in the mood, all my favorites play. Great for working out (dub step, etc) or working (chill or electronic) or or meditating (new age and chill) or when I'm just jamming to the hits. The station gets better and better! Keep it up
Subscriber for years now...
by LJ Joseph on 2017/12/03 14:18
Dont see that changing, however, I would love it if you every six months or so your interface changes didnt mess with my station playlist. It seems like it does. Dont know why or how, but its just an observation. I wish you learned the “if it aint broke, dont fix it concept.” Still, I believe I will be subscribed for a long time... Great radio/MP3 hybrid service. Lots of selection.
Frustration is at peak with this app.
by Kokobutter1 on 2020/06/08 00:47
This app used to be my everything, it always worked, and it had almost any song. But as time has gone on, my music stops playing randomly, and I have to close out the app, and then re open. And it also won’t play a certain song on my playlist. If I click the green button, it plays, but I can’t chose a certain song. So not only does my music randomly stop, but I can’t even play a song that I want. I just have to shuffle until I find what I want
Do not like ONE aspect of the new app
by $$-not worth it on 2019/05/04 20:29
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
Subscription
by ameechelle on 2019/12/08 00:57
I paid the $9.99 to get the ad free, unlimited skips, ability to listen to songs on demand, etc. The money was taken out of my account but I can’t utilize any of the perks of paying. Otherwise I haven’t had any issues in the past except for a few songs here and there not being in a the database or able to be played on demand.
Really really crapping music streaming app
by Speechless in DE on 2019/07/26 10:32
Constantly “blanks out just stops” during songs. I’m in the northeast and it’s never ending. You listen to 1 song and the next 3 are blanked out and auto skipped. Stopping the app and restarting does nothing. Previously before the “update” and name change, it happened every now and then, now the blanking out and “ buffering” is happening every time I launch it. I’ve reinstalled it and contacted their support and am told the same autobot answer every time. “We experiences an outage in your area”. So all of the northeast can’t use your app everyday? That’s a BS answer. It’s so bad anymore.
Network error solved
by mm242099 on 2019/05/02 20:38
Ugh, I have a premium Slacker account and when this update to Live X Live rolled out I was getting the same network error many others have complained about. I finally was able to solve it by logging out and back into my Live X Live account. The app publisher really needs to push an update out that forces a logout/login to solve this for others.
One small problem
by sksbejshsbsujssn on 2019/06/12 10:40
Love LiveXLive. No take away from slacker. However, when I open my phone to change the song, it’s not on my lock screen where it is easily accessible while driving or working out. I have to open my phone and then select the app and then change the song. Bring it back please!
Not happy since livexlive
by Altheebee on 2019/05/23 14:01
I have been a long time premium client of Slacker, and have been considering moving to a different service since the merger. App speed is incredibly slow, even when connected to high speed WiFi. I cannot access my custom stations, I am constantly getting logged out of my account. Furthermore, my “hearted” songs (my favorite mashup list) will frequently play different songs by different artists simply because the song shares the same title. I have reported this issue many times yet it still happens. Not seeming worth $120+ a year anymore.
Love slacker
by Lairdg on 2018/01/09 17:21
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.
Slacker Rocks
by Slacker Rocks on 2018/11/19 19:52
The Stations make Slacker my preferred streaming service. There are about 12 alternative rock stations, including my default New Alternative Now. Updated very frequently, stays fresh. The premium is worth the money. Listening to radio now is unbearable. I looked at competitors because Slacker does support DTS Play-Fi casting: nothing else provide the variety of tightly focused stations.
So long Slacker Radio
by Bri NJ on 2017/12/08 00:34
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!!
Buffering and more buffering
by Schmitty413 on 2019/11/21 09:26
I’ve been a premium sub for five years and just cancelled my subscription today. I gave up my 1000+ playlists. My customized stations. And more. Why? Because the app just decides that certain songs won’t play anymore even though they’re licensed to. They just stop and it says buffering forever. Even on WiFi or full bars I’ve emailed a few times and it’s always the same response of delete the app. Make sure it’s updated. Blah blah blah. Never had an issue when it was Slacker radio. It’s unfortunate. Now I have to create new playlists on another app. Shame.
Next big thing in internet radio.
by VivarachiPR on 2018/11/22 01:24
Slacker radio is in my opinion the best internet radio. It offers what pandora offers with better audio quality and the human comments or hosts like real radio without so many ads. Only thing I noticed is when playing the alt top 40 episode, of I get off the app it starts all over which made menor try listening to it again.
Crashing
by DeFae on 2020/01/06 19:50
I’ve been with Slacker for years and loved it. Now, as LiveX, the app will not stop crashing, skipping songs, stopping in the middle of songs and losing connection on WiFi and data. Even the website is poor quality now. It takes FOREVER to load, it freezes, also skips songs and there is a 5-10 second pause in between songs. I’ve canceled my subscription because of this. The app and site have become too frustrating to use.
Been using slacker since the beginning
by Grubby on 2017/10/11 04:21
Slacker beats every other web-based music program hands-down I'm 40 years old and I'm not the biggest web based music lover I love my CDs however the quality from slacker is hands-down better than any other program available
Adds in middle of songs and after almost every song...
by bobobbing on 2019/11/27 23:16
What is up with all the adds! It wasn’t like this at first but recently between almost every song and sometimes stopping songs for it! Oh can’t forget the random pauses. Fix all this and I’ll give five stars.
LOVE IT
by dogsrule12344321 on 2018/04/04 16:00
Slacker is AMAZING!!!!!!!! I can listen to my favourite when I’m in the car if I download the playlist to offline! This feature comes in handy when you don’t have a phone with data. This also has Imagine Dragons!!!!!!!!! Here are some of the songs on my playlists: who we are, gold, hedwigs theme, warrior, viva la Vida, and many more!!! PLEASE GET THIS APP!!!!!!!!!!!

Security check
by Berkfather on 2020/08/03 18:33
Fails every time I try to log in and goes to a never ending cycle of typing in the security code. Slacker was a lot better before the updated LiveXLive app. Please fix this.
Logging in
by Rodax3 on 2020/07/30 10:08
Every time now since I updated I can’t get past the security log in. I enter in the code and I just pops back up again. Why do you need to enter a security code of a music app?? Makes no sense!
Booo!
by #sosadpanda on 2020/07/27 23:35
I loved, loved, loved Slacker!! But then it changed to this and I haven’t been able to listen to anything, I don’t pay for this thing not to work. Please tell me what to do to fix this or I’m out I’m afraid 😞
Horrible
by 0a00a00 on 2020/07/19 04:33
I deleted the app and they still charge me
Where's the beef!
by 4starlite55 on 2020/07/17 03:19
Livexlive is better than pandora but needs growing still. It is still behind spotify and apple music when it comes to artists licensing on demand items. I like to see more on demand artists contents for example why does Spotify and Tidal gets to have access to all th Beatles artist solo and you dont? George Harrison is not on demand. You need to get more artists on demand. I also like to see Jazz videos and concerts as well as music from current French Artists that updated more often. A top 40 of jazz music like you have for the weekly top 40. You have the potential to be on top if you do what Spotify and Apple music does. Bring it on make it happen. Dont be left behind. I see lots of international artists with new albums and even the Rolling Stones has a new cut. You dont have it yet it's been out tor a while. Stop slacking. Also needs lyrics.
Very best all around music service
by gpinne on 2020/07/02 22:03
Best variety of songs at a bargain price!
Problematic Ads
by NCR MASTER RACE on 2020/06/28 21:16
As a member of the live music community, it is my obligation to advocate for an inclusive society where we can all get blasted and go to live music without any worries about racism. First thing I see on this app is a Trump Pence ad. I was gonna spend some money on this app, definitely planned on it until a saw this. Stop promoting a problematic administration.
Great Fun
by Jo Jo Starbucks on 2020/06/28 13:47
Love this free version.
Skip to the end 4 the point
by crumb of Cookie on 2020/06/25 07:03
I have used this developer since Milk music came free on Samsung’s Phones. Now I have apple and looked for Slacker and came across this. I bought it for $19.99 a year and that was a few features not ALL Available Features/Premium Feature, I felt duped and I would have gladly paid $40 were it offered up front in obvious terms I can live with these few features because for the most part it serves my needs until lockdown passes and I’m required to be under more stressors and higher demands for my sanity 🤪. My question is 🤔, does prime use the sub par algorithms I have currently? When playing my favorites and I have different genres like toddler music and adult contemporary I will get stuck listening to my children’s music it falls within the same grouping but I would have it be filed away under a separate list and that should be easy to write within the code as well as a color code for that folder. For example 💛 my yellow favorites are for with my children in the car because what Parent doesn’t feel like they’re living in a yellow submarine 🚌 driving children around? 🤷🏻‍♀️ like I said 🤪. So the adds are manageable and I like hearing about Macy’s stores 🛍 being open during 2020. 🤣⏳end of time wasted⌛️🤑🤑🤑 😁To the point😝 First, Tell me what features you can offer at different levels in bold areas and clear language. Secondly, you need to further grow and develop your App code to take customer satisfaction through the roof and provide the ultimate listing experience.

No better than any other radio
by Akvavit82 on 2020/06/07 15:14
If you’re listening to anything that is or was popular, the song selection on a given station is just as bad as a terrestrial radio station. Expect to hear zero tracks that weren’t singles and lots of repeats.
Name change???
by Gat45or on 2020/06/05 00:29
I have always been a fan of slacker radio. I’ve had a subscription since 2007/08 roughly and have loved everything about. I am not the biggest fan of the new name change though. When people ask me what I am listening to, live by live doesn’t have a great ring to it and sounds more like a podcast than slacker radio did. My suggestion would be to go back to slacker or come up with a better name change than live by live...give me time and I’ll come up with something!
Could be much better
by tasaman on 2020/05/24 05:01
I like to listen to music. In between I have to listen to liberal crybabies. All of the DJs that are on the rock stations are a bunch of whining Trump hating libtards. Stick to music and stay out of politics and my review would be much much better. Oh, not one single conservative talk show in the talk section. Hmmmmm. Yeah.
Ticket system is broke
by Cubby K on 2020/05/23 20:49
DO NOT USE. Until they fix their ticket system they do not carry from your web browser to the app no matter what ya do. Have bought the same ticket three times and it fails to recognize it aka I am somehow STILL not a ticket holder. Never again. Yuck
Option to like a song outside of app
by BibliophileKate on 2020/05/18 02:36
Wish there was a way to like a song on the lock screen or notification bar, etc that way I don’t have to keep going back into the app...usually to discover I already liked it
playing favorites
by nator tator on 2020/05/17 00:30
When ayibg favorite could you please not suggest songs and use it as a play list of what you Hart in other stations artist exc.... That would be great and when you leave the app and com back at the bottom is a square in right corner of station played last could you make an option to turn it off if you do t want it or on if you do? Thanks!!!
Overhaul
by Kevin6812 on 2020/05/13 16:55
How about giving fine tuning a makeover
Some good, some bad mostly just ok.
by Svtigi on 2020/05/06 19:16
I have had slacker now liveX for a few years now and I have continue to subscribe because of the great random music algorithm it has, and the amazing stations with the DJ. The app it self has a lot of small things that can be frustrating to deal with, such as not having a restart bottom in the custom stations and if you open up the list of songs thinking that you can just hit the first song and be ok.....but no it just starts a new station from that song. At the end of the day it’s like most of the streaming stations in terms on songs.
Apple Watch???
by VegasGirl71 on 2020/05/03 10:36
Love this apps. I wish I can be able to download on my Apple Watch.
Amazing
by LeviRay64 on 2020/05/01 22:43
I absolutely love this app huge win. Well done slacker!
Fix the crashing
by Sarcastimus on 2020/04/30 00:22
Every single time a Gieco commercial tries to play it locks the app up. This is extremely annoying.
Poor Support
by James A. H. on 2020/04/29 12:05
I reported a corrupt song a couple years ago and was told it would be handled. I just heard the same corrupted song today. How hard is it to remove a song from circulation?!? I was told there are multiple copies of the song - great! Why don’t you redirect to the good copies of the song or take a copy of a good one and rename it to take the place of the bad one. It seems there are multiple solutions to the problem and none of them have been utilized. Very disappointed. Other than that, it seems to be a decent music app.
Better than Pandora
by Jackfrancis 100 on 2020/04/22 16:46
Stations have more variety great service
Dope
by Azalia907 on 2020/04/22 16:21

Not user friendly
by drummerbronx on 2020/04/21 04:50
After adding my favorite song to a play list,!I have to wait until end of song then add another. I’m paying 9.99 . I just cancelled. Very disappointed. All old music in 2020. Rip off.
Awesome

Have to keep app open
by Gage51desoto on 2020/04/11 18:34
I guess you have to leave the app open and make sure your screen doesn’t close or the music stops. Very annoying
Great Listenig
by VF-Seattle on 2020/04/06 00:51
Always a good selection of Jazz, always good new stuff to hear. Thanks.
Horrible
by Dave804 on 2020/04/05 04:22
Slacker WAS a great app. Someone’s ego and pride at LiveXLive whatever it’s called ruined a great app. This was a huge mistake to merge Slacker with livex and it’s a horrible user experience next to the old Slacker app. Video content is weak and should have been an add-on to Slacker and clearly not enough to wipeout Slacker and replace it with Livex whatever it’s calling itself! People want to LISTEN to music. They don’t want to watch poorly filmed video clips with horrible audio and awkward unknown amateur interviewers. This rebranding was a horrible idea and you ruined Slacker in the process. Good thing they cleared the reviews for you so your ratings look better then they actually are. But that’s ok. People are smart, they will figure it out for themselves.
I Appreciate It
by DomSpar on 2020/04/05 00:12
I heard this in another review, but I think it’s so important I’ll repeat it: LiveXLive is like Sirius XM, but better in literally every way. (This is all considering the Plus tier which I highly recommend). Unlike Sirius XM, LiveXLive is cheaper, ad-free, customizable, and skip-able. Also, you know how Sirius XM DJs can go on and on and on about none sense? Yeah, that doesn’t happen here. YES, there are still DJs, but it’s short and sweet and not wasting my time. Now, I have LiveXLive Plus and TIDAL HiFi While not the most economical pairing, I appreciate it because I get everything that’s great with TIDAL, plus awesome ad-free radio for music discovery. That music discovery is crucial because even Spotify radio doesn’t match LiveXLive - it’s just not as complete. Don’t get what's so nice about Sirius XM? It’s great as background noise while working or hanging out around the house, and unlike most radio, there’s no ads. With LiveXLive you might find a new favorite, or at least a tolerable tune, but in the off chance that it completely misses the mark, you can skip! Why the 4-stars? I can’t login over my home wifi - I have to go over my data connection. It’s the weirdest, most annoying thing and something I’ve never encountered before. Your mileage may vary. Anyways, give the Plus version a serious try, maybe it’s something you’ll appreciate and value!
Needs smart speaker support!
by Cagleman1 on 2020/03/27 22:53
This service is great. It just badly needs Alexa and Google Home support. Just about every other service is way ahead of them in this regard. Glitchy since last update as well! Fix it, Jesus!
Constantly freezes or shuts downs, maybe cuz I don't pay for it
by Jaimee1699 on 2020/03/22 18:59
When I first open app it'll play like 3-4 songs, then it'll freeze on me & I have a VERY hard time even closing the app, then like 5 mins later it'll play, but not where it left off, then it'll start freezing during a song. It'll freeze probably 3-5 times then it eventually shuts down & goes to my home screen! Idk if it does this cuz I won't pay the subscription or what, but I use to be able to listen for free with no issues!
Song lyrics

Dead spots

Needs to cache the next couple songs for dead cell spots.
Good music selection
by flowbe81 on 2020/03/05 14:18
Too bad it crashes so much. I mostly listen while I drive and I can’t be fiddling with my phone while I drive to open it again all the time. Even when I stream on my computer at home the stream will just freeze up and I have to go navigate away from their site and then back again to get it working again.
Is this app even still in business??
by niathenikebirthmarkgirl on 2020/03/03 16:04
It’s ridiculous that I look for an artist and add a radio station from them or their song and it’s completely of another genre .. I tried to look for Koffee(reggae) and her station is only playing R&B ........ I used to live when my this was slacker radio but it still needs sooooooo much more improvement this is ridiculous there’s no upkeep of this app
Easier access to sleep timer?
by r3j1265 on 2020/02/27 16:52
I love the music selection on LiveXLive, but find the app hard to navigate. In particular, I would like to be able to reach the sleep timer function more quickly and easily. The app has been annoying me so much lately that I’ve started looking at other music streaming services, even though I don’t really want to switch.
I love this app
by Cornell T on 2020/02/22 16:47
It always the music I’m searching for
Propaganda radio app
by Para7rooper on 2020/02/13 00:58
Worst radio app ever! I pay for plus and still get freakin commercial non stop to include this liberal ABC news network that is completely one sided and half truths to fit a narrative. Straight garbage!
Better than all!
by Jermyn Parra on 2020/02/02 15:33
Finally. A streaming service I’m happy with. And nothing makes me happy. In fact, I’m usually miserable and unhappy about everything. Except LiveXLive. It’s the best!
The best way to get through the day.

It’s good when it works
by Smurglel328 on 2020/01/15 22:13
Usually I have a pretty good experience with this app but for whatever reason every time I try to download music offline it just doesn’t download, it will go up to six percent then just give up downloading and I am not sure if this is because of the internet or something to do with the app either way it bothers me. Another problem is for some reason out of nowhere it would just sign me out then I have to sign back then download the music again and it’s such a pain to go back and download it again as it’s a 50/50 shot if it’s going to work or not. That should wrap up the problems with this app.
Took slacker and destroyed it!
by TNT030405 on 2020/01/15 17:06
Had slacker premium for years. Got off slacker for a year. Came back to this “streaming service” that once was the glory of slacker... now trash. Uninstalled! Trash playlists! Freezes all the time so I have to close the app and miss out on certain songs. I don’t care what they say, they changed something!! Slacker was the pandora killer...
Awesome app
by Mguchugyu on 2020/01/07 13:07
I love this app. It works so great and you have so many choices of types of music. They even have Christmas and Halloween songs. You should totally buy LiveXLive!
Crashing
by DeFae on 2020/01/06 19:50
I’ve been with Slacker for years and loved it. Now, as LiveX, the app will not stop crashing, skipping songs, stopping in the middle of songs and losing connection on WiFi and data. Even the website is poor quality now. It takes FOREVER to load, it freezes, also skips songs and there is a 5-10 second pause in between songs. I’ve canceled my subscription because of this. The app and site have become too frustrating to use.
Worst app ever!!!
by Music is all... on 2019/12/29 02:10
Worst app ever!!! You get nothing for the $19.99 a year.... don’t even consider this one. I got fooled thinking that I could get offline listening and some other benefits... also very difficult to use, not good variety of music, etc... not enough words to say, DO NOT GET IT!!!!

by ameechelle on 2019/12/08 00:57
I paid the $9.99 to get the ad free, unlimited skips, ability to listen to songs on demand, etc. The money was taken out of my account but I can’t utilize any of the perks of paying. Otherwise I haven’t had any issues in the past except for a few songs here and there not being in a the database or able to be played on demand.
Rip off app.
by kain95 on 2019/12/07 23:32
I stopped using this app and thought I stopped payment to them. But nope still being charged for a app. I haven’t used in a really long time months 9 of them $4.34 for months times it by 9 Total of being ripped off $39.06. I’m getting Paypal involved to get my payment back.
Buffering.. Buffering... Buffering
by Gruvedaddy on 2019/12/07 14:53
Been a Slacker premium subscriber since 2009 and haven't had any buffering issues until they switched to XliveX. I have 400mb download wifi and still get constant buffering, and yes i always update to the latest version. Also it takes a lot longer to refresh my downloaded content then ever before almost like they have insufficient servers to provide the content. As much as I'd hate to lose the thousands of songs I've liked and disliked and stations and playlists I've created if this buffering bs continues i will cancel my subscription. This is one of the reasons I've kept my free Pandora account active, just in case Slacker went under which appears to be happening. Very bummed about this but i'll give XliveX another few weeks to straighten it out and if they don't I'm gone and I'll give Tidal or Apple music a shot.
Adds in middle of songs and after almost every song...
by bobobbing on 2019/11/27 23:16
What is up with all the adds! It wasn’t like this at first but recently between almost every song and sometimes stopping songs for it! Oh can’t forget the random pauses. Fix all this and I’ll give five stars.
Buffering and more buffering
by Schmitty413 on 2019/11/21 09:26
I’ve been a premium sub for five years and just cancelled my subscription today. I gave up my 1000+ playlists. My customized stations. And more. Why? Because the app just decides that certain songs won’t play anymore even though they’re licensed to. They just stop and it says buffering forever. Even on WiFi or full bars I’ve emailed a few times and it’s always the same response of delete the app. Make sure it’s updated. Blah blah blah. Never had an issue when it was Slacker radio. It’s unfortunate. Now I have to create new playlists on another app. Shame.
App Crashes Constantly
by DrGlennEB on 2019/11/21 08:17
I’d like this app if only I could choose some selections without it freezing on the first one, or the bottom on each screen. Please fix it, so I can re-rate it!

Tired of the news ads
by Never using uber on 2019/11/19 12:07
For music it’s pretty good, I have enjoyed discovering new artists. I wish my favorite songs would transfer to other playlists if they are similar type music. Most of the ads are not bad for length. By far the most irritating thing about this app is the constant news updates with the focus on trump. If I’m going to pay for a music app I’ll switch to Spotify. I wish they allowed you to adjust ads to be more relevant. Like I don’t mind all the dumb ads but I don’t care to hear the same news ad every 8 minutes.

Had for years, just cancelled.
by SCMedic911 on 2019/10/30 19:03
I have had Slacker for years. That entire time I paid for premium service. I used this app daily. The other day I opened the app and saw my account was now a basic plan as opposed to premium. I emailed customer service who stated that I never had a premium account. I forwarded my iTunes subscription notice which showed I was a current premium user. I received an email back saying th over computer said differently and that I’d need to upgrade to premium. “No worries,” I thought. I could just upgrade and it would be fine. Except it wouldn’t let me upgrade since it already showed me as a premium member. I sent one more email but never got a response. So, I deleted the app, canceled my subscription, and downloaded Tidal. It is a far superior app.
Bring back Slacker!
by Itaint on 2019/10/25 22:57
This app crashes or continually buffers even on WiFi!! Useless. I came back to Slacker after trying Pandora. Unfortunately they turned it into this mess.

Added NBC journalists???

How is it that you refer to such biased commentators as journalists? What journalistic integrity do they uphold? You just had to go and find the most dishonest, low-ratings dolts on cable TV.

Great app
by Ceekay Mars on 2019/10/06 20:42
So much better than I heart, I have been using this since it was called slacker, back when it powered milk music for Samsung devices, The UI is great, the plans are cheaper but I wish there was an option you select to watch full screen ads for premium features, paying every month indefinitely just because it’s marketed as a ‘service’ to justify a reoccurring monetary commitment is a bit much. It already has on screen ads in the free version so you are already being paid for my use of the app, not sure why I wouldn’t have premium features.
Needs iOS Shortcuts support
by Aesterling on 2019/10/01 22:51
This app would be excellent if support for iOS Shortcuts and Siri was added like other apps (Pandora) have done.
lol what is LiveXLive?
by LOLZ ☠ on 2019/09/24 10:49
that is the dumbest name ever, is it supposed to be live x live? or live by live? or live times live? anyway slacker went downhill when they changed the GUI, and they never recovered, even before “LIVEXLIVE” took over, and i’m gonna keep the app so my rating stays 😴💤
Crashes constantly
by clepper83 on 2019/09/22 13:14
I use to love this app. I have listened to it for about 7 years. In the last year it has crashed not stop. If I turn it on for 10 min it would have crashed twice. I hate what had happened to it.
Doesn’t work in my car.

Relentless ads.....

NOOO!!
by FIENEJJD RJDO on 2019/09/19 20:42
They do have Hamilton and stuff like that, but seriously?!?!! “ You only get to skip 6 songs?!?” If you haven’t heard of Musi yet go download it, they are working on getting Musi back in the App Store but GET IT when it comes back!

What's going on?
by lilblubird on 2019/09/13 18:21
I've had this app for years and pay for my service. This app keeps closing on me. It just shuts down out of no where. I have to completely close it and reopen it in order for it to work. It plays a couple of songs and does it ALL OVER AGAIN.🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ Anyoneelse having this problem?
This should be called Obscure Radio
by Avg Guy on 2019/09/12 13:20
What chart do you use to identify “hits”? I listened to hits of the 2000s and I only recognized one out of every five songs. I searched Sara McLaughlin all I got was interviews The Application is awesome. Technology wise it’s the best streaming music source I’ve found. A better mix of content and this would be great! 5 stars - but “b” side tracks aren’t worth listening to.

by RDU06 on 2019/08/14 14:18
Slacker has always struggled, in my opinion, with various generations of their app. Sometimes it was amazing and easy to use, other times it was not. But this merge with LiveXLive is AWFUL. It’s so bad that I had to restore my iPhone to a previous iOS in order to get an old backup with the old app. I’ll use this version until they force me to upgrade and then I’ll probably cancel after almost 10 years of being a premium paid subscriber. I use this service almost exclusively on my phone while driving. I’m not sure if they have figured this out yet, but most people don’t want to watch videos while they’re driving... I’m sure they feel that they’re offering additional content by this merge, but all I see is a bunch of garbage in place of a clean music interface.

Dying breed
by Flyboys 100 on 2019/08/03 02:59
After “AOL Radio” sold out to “Slacker radio” the app has gone down hill. Now with the new “LiveXLive” the app...unfortunately.... is garbage constantly crashes even with the latest and greatest devices running it. I just had to switch apps. I have been faithful to any AOL counterpart for years the famous and popular online communication system or the 90s has been taken over by so many user friendly platforms.
LiveXLive commercials
by Marlin spaz on 2019/07/28 16:03
Every 14 minutes is a commercial for Subway, that’s annoying, I will never visit Subway again. Music is great, pick a channel and customize it by liking or banning songs or artists.
Really really crapping music streaming app
by Speechless in DE on 2019/07/26 10:32
Constantly “blanks out just stops” during songs. I’m in the northeast and it’s never ending. You listen to 1 song and the next 3 are blanked out and auto skipped. Stopping the app and restarting does nothing. Previously before the “update” and name change, it happened every now and then, now the blanking out and “ buffering” is happening every time I launch it. I’ve reinstalled it and contacted their support and am told the same autobot answer every time. “We experiences an outage in your area”. So all of the northeast can’t use your app everyday? That’s a BS answer. It’s so bad anymore.
Better than Pandora
by Brent Willingham on 2019/04/03 02:17
Slacker Radio is the answer to Pandora’s increasingly bad service. Like Pandora, Slacker Radio allows you to create custom radio stations with the ability to tell the station that you either like the current playing song or that you never want to play the current playing song again. However, Slacker Radio is better at this kind of service because it allows you to listen to original recordings that are not censored and it has better quality audio. I have tried Pandora and even paid a monthly subscription, but Pandora does not play original uncensored recordings despite the fact that I turned on explicit content. Perhaps some priggish Pandora users somehow caused Pandora to ban all explicit content? Or perhaps Pandora’s algorithm is mistakingly interpreting that I somehow don’t like explicit content, despite the fact that I turned on explicit content? I’m happy that Slacker does not have this problem and that it plays original uncensored music with high quality sound. Thanks for the great music, Slacker Radio, and keep the free-spirited uncensored music going—unhindered by the moralism that has apparently infected Pandora.
So close to perfection.
by LLoose494 on 2019/02/27 03:58
I love Slacker. I actually used it religiously about 10 years ago. It has always done a great job of mixing old and new with my custom stations. I left Slacker long ago when they made all the huge interface changes. I subscribed to Pandora and never really looked back. Fast forward to this week. I decide to see what’s going on with Slacker. Plus I wanted to see if my old stations had any gems I forgot about. I downloaded the app and connected it to my car stereo. The first thing I noticed was the sound quality was way better. Everything sounded more full than my pandora music. 2nd is that unlike pandora, my phone didn’t got into “accessory mode” making it hard to control it the way I want. 3rd was the interface looks great! Much better than the old blue colors of pandora. My only thing with it is why is it so hard to get to my custom stations? I couldn’t care less about the premade stations, I want to see a list of mine the moment I open the app. Instead I have to go to my music, then scroll around until I find custom stations. It should either be there from the get go or one tap away. Another bonus that I never thought I would like... djs and little snippets of news in between songs. They are short and informative and really make it feel like a premium radio station. Remember the old XM radio? It’s similar to that. Now XM has mindless bla bla bla in between songs. This is different and they nailed it.
Improve Dash audio quality
by LAX20531 on 2018/10/27 20:25
I love Slacker. It’s awesome for those of us who don’t follow artists and want help listening to the latest content through their curated channels. That being said, Slacker has done such a poor job in marketing itself and attempting to acquire a loyal base of paid subscribers to assure its long term survival. The idea to cross market with Dash Radio seems short sighted given it’s a gratis product, but the least you could do for subscribers is to offer higher bitrate streams because the audio quality is lacking. Other than this I can’t say enough good about Slacker and send everyone I know to the platform and encourage them to subscribe to at least the low-tier subscription as it’s an excellent value. Lastly: Chromecast streaming is broken after iOS 12 and needs to be fixed.
Loss of Offline Listening in Plus
by Berlynn88 on 2018/01/02 22:25
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.
The truth
by Someone Youll Ignore on 2019/04/27 01:37
Slacker was better when it was slacker the overhaul LiveXLive did of the app is hard to navigate. Where slacker made navigating around their app easy with a side bar that sent you where you wanted these guys hide your recently played stations in a sub menu off your profile and the home page is full of their advertising no one cares about and the offline play and custom playlists stations etc are all made prominent but if you don’t use any of that the. Your stuck trying figure out how to listen to your stations you had previously. LiveXLive take a lnother look at how easy slacker made their station and take some pointers and improve the navigation and I really don’t think a lot of people care about those “shows” on that page. We just want to listen to good music we like as we go about our day. You make it easier to do that then you’ll get a loyal fan base like what slacker had. I’ll continually check back and change my review if you guys actually listen to your listeners and improve your app. If you have any questions or anything let me know. Feels like I’m talking to a wall because so far I haven’t seen you answer any reviews yet.
Worst Radio App Ever
by Jay9739 on 2018/04/13 06:46
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.
What I’ve Been Looking For!!
by fantastickkay on 2018/07/07 09:38
The one thing I miss with streaming music these days is the lack of news updates and little personal dj touches. I thought it was a pipe dream to have news included with music streaming but somehow I found the perfect app! Not only does it have an option to include news updates, it has amazing curated stations for absolutely every mood. I have a spot in my heart for the 60s Deep Dive station. I paid for it for a while, which is great to curate your own stations, but now I use the free version which only adds adverts to my experience but I can still listen to the stations I created so it’s all the same to me!
Apparently not for use in the car
by Kaorovic on 2019/07/25 23:55
The hands-free link support is dodgy at best. I don’t know who needs to hear this, but if I don’t want notices that means I don’t want notices about not receiving notices that I don’t want, especially if the notices I don’t want about the notices I don’t want to cause the app to not work correctly. The hands-free link always seems to stop working when it tries to give me a notice that I’m not receiving notices, even though I repeatedly declined notices. And when the hands-free link stops working the only way to skip a song is to open the app and skip through the app, this really brings up an advertisement that takes over I won’t play any audio at all. I understand how and support works, but I don’t understand how a music app has ads that don’t have any audio. It also seems like the more songs I favorite the less variety there is in the favorites station.
offline listening $4 —> $10... sub —> no sub
by thj4 on 2018/02/11 05:07
Big joke to put a music service up there with the higher tiers of video streaming provider. I wholly like the radio content delivery shtick. A great thing i enjoyed was to load up an older iPod, take it out with it to exercise or knock around with. Didn’t need WiFi or a SIM card, just played what was downloaded. Serving as a Walkman of old. Now, they expect you to either put the wear on my phone (and risk losing coverage if out on trails, or fork over an additional amount 1.5x the cost of the original package. I was introduced with Milk Music (which had a much superior dial channel selector) but I supported Slacker after they shut down the value added content they offered with Samsung phones. They can come back to $4 and count me a sub. Or at the least humor the process and come up with a decent lyrics display (that properly renders horizontally) or something so we’re not just getting gypped.
Disappointed
by kjs270 on 2019/06/09 03:16
Been an avid paying fan of Slacker for years until the recent big change. Now sometimes I can only play 4 or 5 songs then it just stops. Hitting pause, then play does nothing, neither does advancing to the next song. The next song shows up but doesn’t start playing it. I have to quit the program and restart it and sometimes it works and sometimes it still doesn’t work. At that point I go listen to Pandora or Google Play until Slacker decides to start working again. The old old saying, “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” really fits here. I never had a problem until now, and 3 months ago I would have given it an easy 5 star rating. Even on my computer, I use to listen to slacker for 6-8 hours without it stopping and asking me if I was still there. Now recently I’m lucky to go 90 minutes before it stops playing. Really disappointing ....
A little disappointed...
by BrownEyz72 on 2019/04/24 23:32
I have been a paid Slacker subscriber for many years...but I’m a bit disappointed with the look of the new app LiveXLive. New app should mean NEW cover art for ALL the stations. Some stations have had the same cover artist forever. I’m not a fan of the last played station window stuck in the lower corner as I browse the new site. It’s in the way. I’ve mentioned it before, but it would be nice if the people that create the playlists for stations could rotate music more frequently or add way more songs so that if one is listening during a work day, music hasn’t repeated itself numerous times. Especially if you aren’t listening to a New Release station. I give 4 stars because I am a loyal premium subscriber and I prefer slacker over all others.
Buffering.. Buffering... Buffering
by Gruvedaddy on 2019/12/07 14:53
Been a Slacker premium subscriber since 2009 and haven't had any buffering issues until they switched to XliveX. I have 400mb download wifi and still get constant buffering, and yes i always update to the latest version. Also it takes a lot longer to refresh my downloaded content then ever before almost like they have insufficient servers to provide the content. As much as I'd hate to lose the thousands of songs I've liked and disliked and stations and playlists I've created if this buffering bs continues i will cancel my subscription. This is one of the reasons I've kept my free Pandora account active, just in case Slacker went under which appears to be happening. Very bummed about this but i'll give XliveX another few weeks to straighten it out and if they don't I'm gone and I'll give Tidal or Apple music a shot.
New Review
by cmm472 on 2017/10/25 00:39
The app works really well on my iPhone and offline. I think $3.99 is a good value considering that it offers unlimited skips and no ads plus offline listening, I left Pandora for Slacker and use it in addition to my Apple Music account. I like the ABC news breaks and some of the DJs are amusing but I question their musical background; one of them introduced a Beach Boys song and called “Surfin’ USA” “Let’s Go Surfin’ Now.” One of them was talking about a Harry Nilsson cover of “One,” calling it his best original song, I think they all must be in their 20s or 30s. Regardless, there seems to be good variety and they play more deep cuts than Pandora without as much repetition. I wish that when I chose an artist I could hear that artist instead of everyone else.
Still good
by Jj131187 on 2019/07/22 02:06
It always has what I want, after 3 years with it I still love it. Just not happy with the live! I don’t like live music I want to hear the singer not the crowd. And it keeps changing the music to mix songs I want to first version more not a remix. Can y’all make it where it can be turned off. But I do really like the app it has all my favorite so I hope it never god away but please fix these things to help us keep the original music playing not screaming people or so many remixes that play over and over the same lyrics 😐

by GoNoFurther on 2017/10/04 20:48
I've used Slacker for many, many years now. If fact, I don't think they had ads for freeloaders like myself when I first started. I just listen to 'Golden Oldies', Folk and Folk-rock. Don't buy or download misic. I don't even have a lot of lists. I can't afford a monthly bill to just play music. I've tried Pand..... and other internet music apps but I've always returned to Slacker. The ads aren't bad. Hay, what do you want for free and it's better than the radio. If I could pay for music, it definitely would be Slacker.
The New updated.

When slacker first came out it was great. I purchased the premium package so I could listen to the music I wanted to listen to when I wanted to. When slacker switched to the “LiveXLive” is when it all went down hill. I could no longer search by song, you have to type in the artist. I figured it was fine because I could still at least listen to the songs I wanted without having to worry about my “skips” running out (Because I paid to do so). Now with the new update it wont even let me listen to the playlists I created or the songs that I want! Again, SOMETHING I PAID FOR!!! And now it wants me to purchase a premium package?? Yeah I already did that! Give me my money back for the first time I paid for it! May as well just use pandora....
Had for years, just cancelled.
by SCMedic911 on 2019/10/30 19:03
I have had Slacker for years. That entire time I paid for premium service. I used this app daily. The other day I opened the app and saw my account was now a basic plan as opposed to premium. I emailed customer service who stated that I never had a premium account. I forwarded my iTunes subscription notice which showed I was a current premium user. I received an email back saying th over computer said differently and that I’d need to upgrade to premium. “No worries,” I thought. I could just upgrade and it would be fine. Except it wouldn’t let me upgrade since it already showed me as a premium member. I sent one more email but never got a response. So, I deleted the app, canceled my subscription, and downloaded Tidal. It is a far superior app.
It’s good when it works
by Smurglel328 on 2020/01/15 22:13
Usually I have a pretty good experience with this app but for whatever reason every time I try to download music offline it just doesn’t download, it will go up to six percent then just give up downloading and I am not sure if this is because of the internet or something to do with the app either way it bothers me. Another problem is for some reason out of nowhere it would just sign me out then I have to sign back then download the music again and it’s such a pain to go back and download it again as it’s a 50/50 shot if it’s going to work or not. That should wrap up the problems with this app.
Great app
by Ceekay Mars on 2019/10/06 20:42
So much better than I heart, I have been using this since it was called slacker, back when it powered milk music for Samsung devices, The UI is great, the plans are cheaper but I wish there was an option you select to watch full screen ads for premium features, paying every month indefinitely just because it’s marketed as a ‘service’ to justify a reoccurring monetary commitment is a bit much. It already has on screen ads in the free version so you are already being paid for my use of the app, not sure why I wouldn’t have premium features.
Poor Support
by James A. H. on 2020/04/29 12:05
I reported a corrupt song a couple years ago and was told it would be handled. I just heard the same corrupted song today. How hard is it to remove a song from circulation?!? I was told there are multiple copies of the song - great! Why don’t you redirect to the good copies of the song or take a copy of a good one and rename it to take the place of the bad one. It seems there are multiple solutions to the problem and none of them have been utilized. Very disappointed. Other than that, it seems to be a decent music app.
I used to love it
by Sanzi797 on 2017/10/06 18:03
I had to delete the app because every time I would try to play a song . The song would stop on it’s own and when I hit play it would play for about 8 to 10 sec. then stop playing. Then when I tried your support they emailed me and told me to play with my settings. I did didn’t work so I emailed back and they closed my case saying it’s fixed when it isn’t. So delete but you need to fix this till then I’m going to an other music app
Perfect for $3.99 per month
by MacMan9876 on 2018/10/13 02:38
Why is this my favorite music app? 1. The "Plus" version with no advertising is only $3.99 per month. 2. On some stations there's short, insightful commentary by the DJ, Parker, etc. with soothing voice introducing you to music. Absolutely love this feature. 3. There is a “no-ad” ABC News station at your fingertips. 4. If you wish, you can have Slacker occasionally give short news updates from ABC News BETWEEN songs. And/or short no-ad sports updates as well. You can create the perfect ad-free radio station. So cool. 5. The user interface is clean and easily understood. In short, if you don't want to pay a service a full $9.99 per month to pick specific songs and if you don’t need to download music, then Slacker Radio is a fantastic alternative.
Some good, some bad mostly just ok.
by Svtigi on 2020/05/06 19:16
I have had slacker now liveX for a few years now and I have continue to subscribe because of the great random music algorithm it has, and the amazing stations with the DJ. The app it self has a lot of small things that can be frustrating to deal with, such as not having a restart bottom in the custom stations and if you open up the list of songs thinking that you can just hit the first song and be ok.....but no it just starts a new station from that song. At the end of the day it’s like most of the streaming stations in terms on songs.
No offline listening with paid subscription
by Mpcookie on 2018/01/03 19:11
$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.
Crappy customer service
by Nickd69420 on 2019/06/24 07:17
It all started a few months back, couldn’t use slacker off WiFi, could only use offline after I updated the app. I contacted customer service and a guy named Charles was NO help at all. Days would go by with out a email back, then he tried to blame my cell provider and we went back and forth. My buddies had the same problem, so I knew it wasn’t our phones BUT I did find out, after they released the update before “LiveXLive” it turned off data for slacker. Turned it back on, and now we all have slacker again. I’ll continue to subscribe, but I’ll never email them again for a problem.
Horrible
by Dave804 on 2020/04/05 04:22
Slacker WAS a great app. Someone’s ego and pride at LiveXLive whatever it’s called ruined a great app. This was a huge mistake to merge Slacker with livex and it’s a horrible user experience next to the old Slacker app. Video content is weak and should have been an add-on to Slacker and clearly not enough to wipeout Slacker and replace it with Livex whatever it’s calling itself! People want to LISTEN to music. They don’t want to watch poorly filmed video clips with horrible audio and awkward unknown amateur interviewers. This rebranding was a horrible idea and you ruined Slacker in the process. Good thing they cleared the reviews for you so your ratings look better then they actually are. But that’s ok. People are smart, they will figure it out for themselves.
Use to be great
by NinjaPurgs on 2018/06/24 18:12
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.
Beware bogus login -- solved
by Diana.McCall on 2019/05/02 14:14
The new app includes a bogus Apple ID login request. Not sure why they could need my Apple password, and I'm not giving it. Apparently this was a prompt to log in to iTunes, even though I was already logged in, and have never used iTunes, or any Apple music service. Fixed by going to Settings > iTunes & App Store, log out and log back in. Still don't understand the connection between Slacker/LiveXLive and iTunes...
Dropping Premium accounts
by rlovvo on 2017/12/15 01:19
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 on 2017/12/21 17:30
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!
Been using since 2010
by Crayon2 on 2017/11/07 16:47
I did the small upgrade and enjoy music without commercials and can skip through multiple genres. I add a lot of different music to my "favorites mashup" station so when I'm in the mood, all my favorites play. Great for working out (dub step, etc) or working (chill or electronic) or or meditating (new age and chill) or when I'm just jamming to the hits. The station gets better and better! Keep it up
Subscriber for years now...
by LJ Joseph on 2017/12/03 14:18
Dont see that changing, however, I would love it if you every six months or so your interface changes didnt mess with my station playlist. It seems like it does. Dont know why or how, but its just an observation. I wish you learned the “if it aint broke, dont fix it concept.” Still, I believe I will be subscribed for a long time... Great radio/MP3 hybrid service. Lots of selection.
Frustration is at peak with this app.
by Kokobutter1 on 2020/06/08 00:47
This app used to be my everything, it always worked, and it had almost any song. But as time has gone on, my music stops playing randomly, and I have to close out the app, and then re open. And it also won’t play a certain song on my playlist. If I click the green button, it plays, but I can’t chose a certain song. So not only does my music randomly stop, but I can’t even play a song that I want. I just have to shuffle until I find what I want
Do not like ONE aspect of the new app
by $$-not worth it on 2019/05/04 20:29
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
Subscription
by ameechelle on 2019/12/08 00:57
I paid the $9.99 to get the ad free, unlimited skips, ability to listen to songs on demand, etc. The money was taken out of my account but I can’t utilize any of the perks of paying. Otherwise I haven’t had any issues in the past except for a few songs here and there not being in a the database or able to be played on demand.
Really really crapping music streaming app
by Speechless in DE on 2019/07/26 10:32
Constantly “blanks out just stops” during songs. I’m in the northeast and it’s never ending. You listen to 1 song and the next 3 are blanked out and auto skipped. Stopping the app and restarting does nothing. Previously before the “update” and name change, it happened every now and then, now the blanking out and “ buffering” is happening every time I launch it. I’ve reinstalled it and contacted their support and am told the same autobot answer every time. “We experiences an outage in your area”. So all of the northeast can’t use your app everyday? That’s a BS answer. It’s so bad anymore.
Network error solved
by mm242099 on 2019/05/02 20:38
Ugh, I have a premium Slacker account and when this update to Live X Live rolled out I was getting the same network error many others have complained about. I finally was able to solve it by logging out and back into my Live X Live account. The app publisher really needs to push an update out that forces a logout/login to solve this for others.
One small problem
by sksbejshsbsujssn on 2019/06/12 10:40
Love LiveXLive. No take away from slacker. However, when I open my phone to change the song, it’s not on my lock screen where it is easily accessible while driving or working out. I have to open my phone and then select the app and then change the song. Bring it back please!
Not happy since livexlive
by Altheebee on 2019/05/23 14:01
I have been a long time premium client of Slacker, and have been considering moving to a different service since the merger. App speed is incredibly slow, even when connected to high speed WiFi. I cannot access my custom stations, I am constantly getting logged out of my account. Furthermore, my “hearted” songs (my favorite mashup list) will frequently play different songs by different artists simply because the song shares the same title. I have reported this issue many times yet it still happens. Not seeming worth $120+ a year anymore.
Love slacker
by Lairdg on 2018/01/09 17:21
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.
Slacker Rocks
by Slacker Rocks on 2018/11/19 19:52
The Stations make Slacker my preferred streaming service. There are about 12 alternative rock stations, including my default New Alternative Now. Updated very frequently, stays fresh. The premium is worth the money. Listening to radio now is unbearable. I looked at competitors because Slacker does support DTS Play-Fi casting: nothing else provide the variety of tightly focused stations.
So long Slacker Radio
by Bri NJ on 2017/12/08 00:34
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!!
Buffering and more buffering
by Schmitty413 on 2019/11/21 09:26
I’ve been a premium sub for five years and just cancelled my subscription today. I gave up my 1000+ playlists. My customized stations. And more. Why? Because the app just decides that certain songs won’t play anymore even though they’re licensed to. They just stop and it says buffering forever. Even on WiFi or full bars I’ve emailed a few times and it’s always the same response of delete the app. Make sure it’s updated. Blah blah blah. Never had an issue when it was Slacker radio. It’s unfortunate. Now I have to create new playlists on another app. Shame.
Next big thing in internet radio.
by VivarachiPR on 2018/11/22 01:24
Slacker radio is in my opinion the best internet radio. It offers what pandora offers with better audio quality and the human comments or hosts like real radio without so many ads. Only thing I noticed is when playing the alt top 40 episode, of I get off the app it starts all over which made menor try listening to it again.
Crashing
by DeFae on 2020/01/06 19:50
I’ve been with Slacker for years and loved it. Now, as LiveX, the app will not stop crashing, skipping songs, stopping in the middle of songs and losing connection on WiFi and data. Even the website is poor quality now. It takes FOREVER to load, it freezes, also skips songs and there is a 5-10 second pause in between songs. I’ve canceled my subscription because of this. The app and site have become too frustrating to use.
Been using slacker since the beginning
by Grubby on 2017/10/11 04:21
Slacker beats every other web-based music program hands-down I'm 40 years old and I'm not the biggest web based music lover I love my CDs however the quality from slacker is hands-down better than any other program available
Adds in middle of songs and after almost every song...
by bobobbing on 2019/11/27 23:16
What is up with all the adds! It wasn’t like this at first but recently between almost every song and sometimes stopping songs for it! Oh can’t forget the random pauses. Fix all this and I’ll give five stars.
LOVE IT
by dogsrule12344321 on 2018/04/04 16:00
Slacker is AMAZING!!!!!!!! I can listen to my favourite when I’m in the car if I download the playlist to offline! This feature comes in handy when you don’t have a phone with data. This also has Imagine Dragons!!!!!!!!! Here are some of the songs on my playlists: who we are, gold, hedwigs theme, warrior, viva la Vida, and many more!!! PLEASE GET THIS APP!!!!!!!!!!!
