The best at playing what you're in the mood for
by ManuelM13 on 2021/04/09 03:53
I've tried all of the other major music streaming apps and nothing beats livexlive/slacker where it counts: playing a station that you won't end up endlessly skipping through. The ability to play music that matches what you're in the mood for is second to none, and the ability to fine tune a station to play newer/older or similar/more diverse music gives you all of the power to play what you like. And you can like or dislike a song and it stays specific to the station. So maybe you don't want a pop song on your rock station, or maybe you do, and it won't affect if it'll play on another station. I have stations for all different types of moods and nothing else comes close to being able to do this at well. One knock: wish you could skip back to a previous song when on a station. Sometimes i wanna hear the same song a second time without leaving the station.
A big step back from the old Slacker
by notapaidrevi3w on 2021/04/06 15:19
We have all done it, Create a masterpiece like slacker radio once was, and just to try to toot your own horn you try to go a little further and make it even better, well I am here to remind soccer radio and hopefully any other developers reading this; Sometimes and more often than not more is not better, I unendingly hear people say that they want their old crank windows back and I hate their power windows, I regularly hear people say how over complicating phones have become they can do a ton of stuff but almost no one knows how to reach that point to do anything on them. Even the original slacker radio could have been improved by simplifying and streamlining things. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my extensive history in sales, it is that customers are incredibly smart and intelligent and you cannot pull the wool over their eyes even if they act as though you are. We know when ads developers use bright backgrounds they are probably in cahoots with batteries manufacturers who know these colors drain the batteries quickly, We know when there is over complicated apps and too many buttons and places to do even the simplest things it is encouraging accidental clicks to make purchases or it is encouraging getting lost within the app so that way you view more ads. The company who will win beyond any other company will be the company who throws away all advertising for other people and streamline their services so that buttons are easy to see and push and the app works quick not many people would mind a grayscale big button app for their music in fact most people would want that type of simplicity when you’re in the mood to find a specific song. Every time I try to use this app I spent 25 minutes trying to find music trying to play music to play buttons don’t work things are great out it’s too much stuff on the screen. I have a computer technology degree and I’m telling you over complicating things does not make it better
My review
by Jh 34 on 2021/04/02 20:23
I hate how some songs aren’t available on demand. I have to google it. For a paid app thats not cool. You should fix this.
Connection issues
by OneplusYesman on 2021/03/26 19:21
Will buying the app help my connection issues? I been dealing with your spotty connections since 4G go started & now with my new 5G phone same connection issues..smh
Great music with great features!
by 78rn on 2021/03/24 11:30
The music is great but the "Fine tune" feature and the ability to cache stations puts this app above the rest. Love that I can watch live music festivals (although I wish they were store for viewing later). Works great with the integrated software in my Toyota Tacoma. Great job Team Slacker! You guys rock! One con: MUST GET APPLE WATCH APP! I’m waiting guys, bring it!
Very nice
by ilovetrump46 on 2021/03/24 02:19
Good
So far So good.
by Radio & Musuc on 2021/03/23 04:31
I was researching some other music streaming apps & came across this one so I decided to give it a try, I’ve went ahead & purchased the premium subscription. I’ve had other similar apps & so far this one definitely delivers 😅
Ads for Premium Users
by kj46551267 on 2021/03/22 20:40
his app doesn't always play automatically despite it being set as such in my settings. It constantly asks if I want to enable notifications, which I have said "no" to at least twenty times. But the biggest slap in the face of all is that, despite paying $10 a month, the app thinks it's acceptable to show me advertisements popping up in front of my stations. No, I don't want to see a "YouTube vs. TikTok" anything. Slacker was better than Pandora, but if I see another ad, there's clearly no reason for me to continue paying for the service.
No airplay support
by Slcg on 2021/03/22 02:45
The app doesn’t support airplay. It will play 1 song then just switch back to the internal speakers. Same problem on both ipad and iPhone
DO NOT GET THIS APP KEEP PANDORA
by UpsetCustomer-86 on 2021/03/01 19:10
I paid for premium and the app does not work! I can’t replay songs or do anything that the premium plan would let me do. The customer service is bad via email they just say you have a Plus account , but no I sent prove that I have a premium account and they have me back and forth with the same thing. At this point I paid for one month and is about to expire so I would never use this app again, waste of money!
Slow to start playing
by mansourlaw on 2021/02/28 19:06
My biggest complaint about this app is that it takes a very long time for your stations or favorites to start playing. I find myself defaulting to the Amazon music app which plays almost immediately. If the app was faster, I probably would use it more.
Battery Drain on iPhone 10xsMax
by TysonSF on 2021/02/27 04:52
I hadn’t used this app in a long long time. About a month ago I noticed my 10xsMax battery would be down to 20% about 2 hours after I unplugged from a full charge. Went to T-Mobile to look at new iPhones vs battery replacement... then the rep looked at my battery use and live x live was sucking up over 50% of battery use AND I HAD NEVER EVEN OPENED IT IN A YEAR!!! I deleted it and my phone is like a new phone. Thanks Slacker, almost cost me $1200!! Never again.
Battery killer
by govuz1 on 2021/02/24 01:18
This app recently started draining my battery to the point it was making my phone hot. I deleted the app and the problem was solved.
New stuff
by gruntersdad on 2021/02/23 15:40
Ive been listening for well over 2 years and the comedy channels are playing the same stuff as two years ago.,No excuse
So many ads!!!

So many ads it’s annoying.
Battery killer

Rip Pop Smoke//Nipsey.... The Hustle Continue

The world has changed because of these legends.
Used to love. Now? Not so much.
by Ghost_Cloud on 2021/02/09 06:24
I've used slacker/Livexlive for a long time. But recently it's started pausing its music for no reason at all multiple times in a row. It also stops the music in the middle of the song or before the next song even begins and sits there and loads for as long as I allow it to sit there before exiting out of the app and restarting it. All while everything else on my phone is working perfectly fine with no issues at all. Now, it's telling me I can't cancel my subscription because there is an error trying to do so. It's rather annoying and I'm just trying to cancel it so I can go somewhere else at this point. Still a good app it's just not for me anymore.
Battery drainer
by livexlivestinks on 2021/02/08 01:47
Deleted app once I discovered this app was running in the background for over 6 hours while my phone was inactive. I used the app to stream music occasionally, but I’ll find something else.
Bring back Slacker
by greebs on 2021/01/27 03:22
Once again, “fixing” what wasn’t broken results in an usable app that apparently can’t even “phone home”. Fail. (Ver 8.23.2)
The NEW MUSIC STREAMING APP
by Tonesbeach on 2021/01/18 21:21
Awesome!!! So glad I found this app. Are there plans to also integrate AR/VR concerts and to ticket purchasing?
I like it but...
by MarcoVGL on 2021/01/15 19:18
It’s not optimized for iPhone 12 mini display. AirPlay support is broken. Leon Bridges’ “If it feels good” does not play, ever.
Needs Apple Watch app
by Gee4208 on 2021/01/15 00:07
This app would be stellar if I could get it to fully function on my Apple Watch. Please fix this. I will be deleting this app if I can’t get it to work seamlessly like Apple Music or close to it.
Live to live is the best
by Perfect chess game for me on 2021/01/04 14:18
Live to live is my favorite streaming service. I listen to the wide selection of music and videos daily.
Total garbage
by Dkrikrjskenfkkd on 2020/12/29 02:58
Excessive battery use Lousy app
ONE STAR?? Not
by T ripped off on 2020/12/24 00:17
This deserves no stars! You listen to watch and have more pop up adds then you do music! You no joke will be listening to ads more then music! Trash find a different app for music, like I’m about to do!
The Best!!! buh bye Spotify and pandora
by CamilaTSboston on 2020/12/22 01:56
This app is amazing, it does everything and just as affordable as Pandora. You can also purchase live tickets to see from home without going out and catching Covid. LivexLive has soo much to over. The sound is excellent, and I thought Spotify sounded great, nope! I was wrong. They also have a free section if you don’t want to purchase the subscription, but you do get 15 sec. ad ugh, it’s definitely worth the monthly subscriptions. There’s tons todo on here. You can see interviews pods cast and soo much more. You also can listen to music offline. Offline music is soo important to me as I work in a concrete building. Did I mention about the unlimited skips ? Unlike Pandora premium account, you still are limited do to some lame license agreement. Having Spotify and pandora was my thing. Spotify had better DJs and pandora played the same playlist over and over. So I liked them both for different things, but now LiveXLive has it all in one app.. you know what. Just give it a try yourself.. always the newest hottest songs come on here.. definitely worth it.. I love you LivexLive ♥️♥️♥️
Love it
by James887 on 2020/12/19 02:50
Has the best of both worlds of stations that you can skip songs with and DJs to make it more interesting. I also enjoy all the curated stations.
No Apple Watch support
by cnbuyfbnjgddvnklhfcbj on 2020/12/15 17:17
I loved it until I found out it does not work with our Apple Watch. Ridiculous that they don’t have it available for Apple Watch! So, while I would’ve rated it 5 stars I can only give it 2.
Garbage
by Ladbrey on 2020/12/14 22:12
Skip through 35 useless tracks, find something you finally want to hear, and the app locks up. Restart app. Restart phone. New useless tracks. After 35-40 of NOTHING that is relevant, you find one. The app locks up, and won’t play. Garbage algorithms.
Great app
by jamie22314 on 2020/12/11 17:36
Love this app! I love the radio playlist selections and the ability to watch live concerts and album releases. Hopefully they continue to expand their live performances, but so far it’s been dope!
The best Smooth Jazz playlist on the Internet
by Know4LIFE on 2020/12/10 18:47
This is the excellent channel to go to for music. One of my go to sites for Jazz, Especially smooth jazz.
Battery burn out iPhone 12
by Kik1958 on 2020/12/08 19:23
Somehow activated in background. Haven’t used slacker in a long time. And this version not only activated but overheated phone. Too bad because long time ago slacker was good app
No dark mode
by USA36 on 2020/12/02 14:52
Add dark mode
Great Playlists and live music!
by BYJablinski on 2020/11/26 20:20
Really enjoying the playlists, been listening to the Christmas holiday mix all week! Also enjoyed the live Pitbull concert on PPV. Great app for music!
Support issues
by seikuro on 2020/10/16 16:02
I have had problems over the years trying to restart subscriptions through iTunes. This last time, my account would sit and idly spin if I tried in my new iPhone - no matter if I had tried to renew through the app or on the website Safari. I finally had to get on my desktop to renew it. I’m debating cancelling my service because, despite being relatively content with the product, I’m unhappy with the support I received from Frank this go-around. It saddens me because I’d had brand loyalty since the Slacker days.
Not as good as it was
by tieltamer on 2020/10/15 17:12
It’s currently glitchy, not finishing songs. It used to be better.
Loading Problem
by drunken moon on 2020/10/13 15:55
Unable to access music... constant ‘loading problem’. App used to be ok... now a pain.
Lousy
by Barrowlands on 2020/10/12 15:39
Maybe don't allow political banner ads in your music app. Even when other music services use ads, they aren't that stupid - they actually want to court their customers and make them feel comfortable shelling out cash after a while. Also, the UI is about as ugly as they come and often doesn't load properly. I remember Slacker from 2009 - I didn't expect it to be stuck there.
Over developed
by Zombie slayers on 2020/10/07 12:25
Have this apps for years! Premium membership for years! This app is getting more and more confusing and hard to navigate. With each update it seems harder to find what you want, I understand they what you to go to someplace new and find more stuff they offer. Can’t fine tune your station thru app anymore at least I can’t figure out how. New buttons hidden icons, really? It’s not just me, was at work yesterday and recommend this app to a co worker few weeks ago. He said today and I quote “ what the hell! How to I play my station? Everything is jacked up!” I’m sure they will continue to make it more and more complicated then it needs to be, so is life. May need to start looking elsewhere for my music app. Seems like Every time I figure this thing out they change it and make it harder to use.
Drain battery in background
by Emamally on 2020/10/05 05:12
This app was draining my battery in the background by 84 percent . I never seen that happen before that is crazy . Deleted app
Need to fix constant bugs
by jrs1542 on 2020/10/04 20:29
After transitioning from Android to IPhone for about six months now, I can tell you the performance of the application is terrible. Constantly freezing, can’t go to previous song like I use to be able to, and when the majority of your competitors allow at least two devices to stream at once it’s a little aggravating that I pay for a service with so many repetitive issues and limitations. Hope you are working on updates to fix soon because I use to love the app more than any others.
Pain to use
by zookdudeman on 2020/10/02 20:31
Used to be good years ago but it has been going downhill. Such a pain to use. Not even worth it. Way to many bugs
Lob it
by fala 123 on 2020/09/27 04:14
I love this app I got introduced by it by wonho and monsta x virtual concerts and the creater is amazing how fast he responds
I choose Spotify for Premium
by _ChuckG_ on 2020/09/22 23:36
I’ve been a Plus subscriber for a long time and wanted to upgrade to the full streaming experience. For the same money (Premium), LiveXLive can’t compete with Spotify. So, I upgraded my service by canceling my LiveXLive Plus and subscribing Spotify Premium.
Live concert coming this weekend.
by ahw3605 on 2020/09/22 14:26
I was going to open the app to check the start time and the app is crashing. Maybe need to check that.
lol what is LiveXLive??
by LOLZ ☠ on 2020/09/18 22:41
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 😴💤
Settings don't work
by _ŒÂ◊ on 2020/09/18 21:42
New station name field is sometimes behind the notch. Changing station description doesn't save. Reverts to default. Host is turned off, still get people talking. I miss Slacker.
Great app, but
by Roll/Tide18 on 2020/09/14 01:42
When listening to app with earphones, the sound cuts off if I open another app or game. Please fix this problem and get 5 stars
Underground music

Can you play different underground music. It’s all the same songs all the time
If I see 1 more trump ad

I’m deleting this app.
Use to be better
by tac_gene on 2020/09/03 06:58
I've had this app since it use to be slacker and it use to be better, now it freezes up all the time or stops playing for their full page ad's. Trying to use this app to play music in your car or on a motorcycle is gonna cause you issues, I understand the need for ad's but stopping the music for the ad is crap and distracts people from what they should be doing.
Remove features and up-sale
by Eleminohpee on 2020/08/26 23:27
Then remove good features when you subscribe and then add them to premium. Guess it’s time to give the money to Spotify, for the price at least they offer original content. Slacker used to be good too, once they changed the name it’s been a free fall.
Likening the songs I driving when I get home
by lordduece on 2020/08/25 19:15
I do not know what changed but when I get homes I use to be able to hit the three bars and it took me. To a screen where I could mark songs of I like them or not bring back that feature it was great now all it. Shows is what songs played
Add more DJ's to stations
by Koolmoetee on 2020/08/23 04:50
I love this app. The music on all stations sound so crisp & clear. I really wish DJ's were added to 90's and 80's R&B stations and also on the classic stations. Other than that I'm content
What happen to you?!
by Heat 2012 on 2020/08/21 18:05
You guys self-destruct your name and made your name unheard of... sorry to say everything is horrible. I like Slacker when it was Slacker again from the beginning of times it was started!
Account hacked

Keep Crashing
by PossibleUpdates on 2020/08/17 15:20
Since October of 2019 my app has been crashing. It really pissing me off because if I’m paying for the service I expect to use it. I went a whole month of crashing then every other day crashing. Now it just don’t even load I have redownload the app several times. This will be my last month of slacker new online radio it’s bootleg.
New update needed
by Idontgivearatsass on 2020/08/11 17:20
I can’t log in at all. It just keeps saying retry.
No access
by tam bad on 2020/08/09 03:52
It didn't allow me to access the concert I paid for
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

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.

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
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.

I absolutely love this app huge win. Well done slacker!
Fix the crashing

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

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

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!

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.
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 😐
Used to love. Now? Not so much.
by Ghost_Cloud on 2021/02/09 06:24
I've used slacker/Livexlive for a long time. But recently it's started pausing its music for no reason at all multiple times in a row. It also stops the music in the middle of the song or before the next song even begins and sits there and loads for as long as I allow it to sit there before exiting out of the app and restarting it. All while everything else on my phone is working perfectly fine with no issues at all. Now, it's telling me I can't cancel my subscription because there is an error trying to do so. It's rather annoying and I'm just trying to cancel it so I can go somewhere else at this point. Still a good app it's just not for me anymore.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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!
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.
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.
Over developed
by Zombie slayers on 2020/10/07 12:25
Have this apps for years! Premium membership for years! This app is getting more and more confusing and hard to navigate. With each update it seems harder to find what you want, I understand they what you to go to someplace new and find more stuff they offer. Can’t fine tune your station thru app anymore at least I can’t figure out how. New buttons hidden icons, really? It’s not just me, was at work yesterday and recommend this app to a co worker few weeks ago. He said today and I quote “ what the hell! How to I play my station? Everything is jacked up!” I’m sure they will continue to make it more and more complicated then it needs to be, so is life. May need to start looking elsewhere for my music app. Seems like Every time I figure this thing out they change it and make it harder to use.
Support issues
by seikuro on 2020/10/16 16:02
I have had problems over the years trying to restart subscriptions through iTunes. This last time, my account would sit and idly spin if I tried in my new iPhone - no matter if I had tried to renew through the app or on the website Safari. I finally had to get on my desktop to renew it. I’m debating cancelling my service because, despite being relatively content with the product, I’m unhappy with the support I received from Frank this go-around. It saddens me because I’d had brand loyalty since the Slacker days.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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

The best at playing what you're in the mood for
by ManuelM13 on 2021/04/09 03:53
I've tried all of the other major music streaming apps and nothing beats livexlive/slacker where it counts: playing a station that you won't end up endlessly skipping through. The ability to play music that matches what you're in the mood for is second to none, and the ability to fine tune a station to play newer/older or similar/more diverse music gives you all of the power to play what you like. And you can like or dislike a song and it stays specific to the station. So maybe you don't want a pop song on your rock station, or maybe you do, and it won't affect if it'll play on another station. I have stations for all different types of moods and nothing else comes close to being able to do this at well. One knock: wish you could skip back to a previous song when on a station. Sometimes i wanna hear the same song a second time without leaving the station.
A big step back from the old Slacker
by notapaidrevi3w on 2021/04/06 15:19
We have all done it, Create a masterpiece like slacker radio once was, and just to try to toot your own horn you try to go a little further and make it even better, well I am here to remind soccer radio and hopefully any other developers reading this; Sometimes and more often than not more is not better, I unendingly hear people say that they want their old crank windows back and I hate their power windows, I regularly hear people say how over complicating phones have become they can do a ton of stuff but almost no one knows how to reach that point to do anything on them. Even the original slacker radio could have been improved by simplifying and streamlining things. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my extensive history in sales, it is that customers are incredibly smart and intelligent and you cannot pull the wool over their eyes even if they act as though you are. We know when ads developers use bright backgrounds they are probably in cahoots with batteries manufacturers who know these colors drain the batteries quickly, We know when there is over complicated apps and too many buttons and places to do even the simplest things it is encouraging accidental clicks to make purchases or it is encouraging getting lost within the app so that way you view more ads. The company who will win beyond any other company will be the company who throws away all advertising for other people and streamline their services so that buttons are easy to see and push and the app works quick not many people would mind a grayscale big button app for their music in fact most people would want that type of simplicity when you’re in the mood to find a specific song. Every time I try to use this app I spent 25 minutes trying to find music trying to play music to play buttons don’t work things are great out it’s too much stuff on the screen. I have a computer technology degree and I’m telling you over complicating things does not make it better
My review
by Jh 34 on 2021/04/02 20:23
I hate how some songs aren’t available on demand. I have to google it. For a paid app thats not cool. You should fix this.
Connection issues
by OneplusYesman on 2021/03/26 19:21
Will buying the app help my connection issues? I been dealing with your spotty connections since 4G go started & now with my new 5G phone same connection issues..smh
Great music with great features!
by 78rn on 2021/03/24 11:30
The music is great but the "Fine tune" feature and the ability to cache stations puts this app above the rest. Love that I can watch live music festivals (although I wish they were store for viewing later). Works great with the integrated software in my Toyota Tacoma. Great job Team Slacker! You guys rock! One con: MUST GET APPLE WATCH APP! I’m waiting guys, bring it!
Very nice
by ilovetrump46 on 2021/03/24 02:19
Good
So far So good.
by Radio & Musuc on 2021/03/23 04:31
I was researching some other music streaming apps & came across this one so I decided to give it a try, I’ve went ahead & purchased the premium subscription. I’ve had other similar apps & so far this one definitely delivers 😅
Ads for Premium Users
by kj46551267 on 2021/03/22 20:40
his app doesn't always play automatically despite it being set as such in my settings. It constantly asks if I want to enable notifications, which I have said "no" to at least twenty times. But the biggest slap in the face of all is that, despite paying $10 a month, the app thinks it's acceptable to show me advertisements popping up in front of my stations. No, I don't want to see a "YouTube vs. TikTok" anything. Slacker was better than Pandora, but if I see another ad, there's clearly no reason for me to continue paying for the service.
No airplay support
by Slcg on 2021/03/22 02:45
The app doesn’t support airplay. It will play 1 song then just switch back to the internal speakers. Same problem on both ipad and iPhone
DO NOT GET THIS APP KEEP PANDORA
by UpsetCustomer-86 on 2021/03/01 19:10
I paid for premium and the app does not work! I can’t replay songs or do anything that the premium plan would let me do. The customer service is bad via email they just say you have a Plus account , but no I sent prove that I have a premium account and they have me back and forth with the same thing. At this point I paid for one month and is about to expire so I would never use this app again, waste of money!
Slow to start playing
by mansourlaw on 2021/02/28 19:06
My biggest complaint about this app is that it takes a very long time for your stations or favorites to start playing. I find myself defaulting to the Amazon music app which plays almost immediately. If the app was faster, I probably would use it more.
Battery Drain on iPhone 10xsMax
by TysonSF on 2021/02/27 04:52
I hadn’t used this app in a long long time. About a month ago I noticed my 10xsMax battery would be down to 20% about 2 hours after I unplugged from a full charge. Went to T-Mobile to look at new iPhones vs battery replacement... then the rep looked at my battery use and live x live was sucking up over 50% of battery use AND I HAD NEVER EVEN OPENED IT IN A YEAR!!! I deleted it and my phone is like a new phone. Thanks Slacker, almost cost me $1200!! Never again.
Battery killer
by govuz1 on 2021/02/24 01:18
This app recently started draining my battery to the point it was making my phone hot. I deleted the app and the problem was solved.
New stuff

Used to love. Now? Not so much.
by Ghost_Cloud on 2021/02/09 06:24
I've used slacker/Livexlive for a long time. But recently it's started pausing its music for no reason at all multiple times in a row. It also stops the music in the middle of the song or before the next song even begins and sits there and loads for as long as I allow it to sit there before exiting out of the app and restarting it. All while everything else on my phone is working perfectly fine with no issues at all. Now, it's telling me I can't cancel my subscription because there is an error trying to do so. It's rather annoying and I'm just trying to cancel it so I can go somewhere else at this point. Still a good app it's just not for me anymore.
Battery drainer
by livexlivestinks on 2021/02/08 01:47
Deleted app once I discovered this app was running in the background for over 6 hours while my phone was inactive. I used the app to stream music occasionally, but I’ll find something else.
Bring back Slacker
by greebs on 2021/01/27 03:22
Once again, “fixing” what wasn’t broken results in an usable app that apparently can’t even “phone home”. Fail. (Ver 8.23.2)
The NEW MUSIC STREAMING APP
by Tonesbeach on 2021/01/18 21:21
Awesome!!! So glad I found this app. Are there plans to also integrate AR/VR concerts and to ticket purchasing?
I like it but...
by MarcoVGL on 2021/01/15 19:18
It’s not optimized for iPhone 12 mini display. AirPlay support is broken. Leon Bridges’ “If it feels good” does not play, ever.
Needs Apple Watch app
by Gee4208 on 2021/01/15 00:07
This app would be stellar if I could get it to fully function on my Apple Watch. Please fix this. I will be deleting this app if I can’t get it to work seamlessly like Apple Music or close to it.
Live to live is the best
by Perfect chess game for me on 2021/01/04 14:18
Live to live is my favorite streaming service. I listen to the wide selection of music and videos daily.
Total garbage
by Dkrikrjskenfkkd on 2020/12/29 02:58
Excessive battery use Lousy app
ONE STAR?? Not
by T ripped off on 2020/12/24 00:17
This deserves no stars! You listen to watch and have more pop up adds then you do music! You no joke will be listening to ads more then music! Trash find a different app for music, like I’m about to do!
The Best!!! buh bye Spotify and pandora
by CamilaTSboston on 2020/12/22 01:56
This app is amazing, it does everything and just as affordable as Pandora. You can also purchase live tickets to see from home without going out and catching Covid. LivexLive has soo much to over. The sound is excellent, and I thought Spotify sounded great, nope! I was wrong. They also have a free section if you don’t want to purchase the subscription, but you do get 15 sec. ad ugh, it’s definitely worth the monthly subscriptions. There’s tons todo on here. You can see interviews pods cast and soo much more. You also can listen to music offline. Offline music is soo important to me as I work in a concrete building. Did I mention about the unlimited skips ? Unlike Pandora premium account, you still are limited do to some lame license agreement. Having Spotify and pandora was my thing. Spotify had better DJs and pandora played the same playlist over and over. So I liked them both for different things, but now LiveXLive has it all in one app.. you know what. Just give it a try yourself.. always the newest hottest songs come on here.. definitely worth it.. I love you LivexLive ♥️♥️♥️
Love it
by James887 on 2020/12/19 02:50
Has the best of both worlds of stations that you can skip songs with and DJs to make it more interesting. I also enjoy all the curated stations.
No Apple Watch support
by cnbuyfbnjgddvnklhfcbj on 2020/12/15 17:17
I loved it until I found out it does not work with our Apple Watch. Ridiculous that they don’t have it available for Apple Watch! So, while I would’ve rated it 5 stars I can only give it 2.
Garbage
by Ladbrey on 2020/12/14 22:12
Skip through 35 useless tracks, find something you finally want to hear, and the app locks up. Restart app. Restart phone. New useless tracks. After 35-40 of NOTHING that is relevant, you find one. The app locks up, and won’t play. Garbage algorithms.
Great app
by jamie22314 on 2020/12/11 17:36
Love this app! I love the radio playlist selections and the ability to watch live concerts and album releases. Hopefully they continue to expand their live performances, but so far it’s been dope!

Unable to access music... constant ‘loading problem’. App used to be ok... now a pain.
Lousy
by Barrowlands on 2020/10/12 15:39
Maybe don't allow political banner ads in your music app. Even when other music services use ads, they aren't that stupid - they actually want to court their customers and make them feel comfortable shelling out cash after a while. Also, the UI is about as ugly as they come and often doesn't load properly. I remember Slacker from 2009 - I didn't expect it to be stuck there.

Need to fix constant bugs
by jrs1542 on 2020/10/04 20:29
After transitioning from Android to IPhone for about six months now, I can tell you the performance of the application is terrible. Constantly freezing, can’t go to previous song like I use to be able to, and when the majority of your competitors allow at least two devices to stream at once it’s a little aggravating that I pay for a service with so many repetitive issues and limitations. Hope you are working on updates to fix soon because I use to love the app more than any others.
Pain to use
by zookdudeman on 2020/10/02 20:31

I choose Spotify for Premium
by _ChuckG_ on 2020/09/22 23:36
I’ve been a Plus subscriber for a long time and wanted to upgrade to the full streaming experience. For the same money (Premium), LiveXLive can’t compete with Spotify. So, I upgraded my service by canceling my LiveXLive Plus and subscribing Spotify Premium.
Live concert coming this weekend.

lol what is LiveXLive??
by LOLZ ☠ on 2020/09/18 22:41
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 😴💤
Settings don't work

Use to be better
by tac_gene on 2020/09/03 06:58
I've had this app since it use to be slacker and it use to be better, now it freezes up all the time or stops playing for their full page ad's. Trying to use this app to play music in your car or on a motorcycle is gonna cause you issues, I understand the need for ad's but stopping the music for the ad is crap and distracts people from what they should be doing.
Remove features and up-sale
by Eleminohpee on 2020/08/26 23:27
Then remove good features when you subscribe and then add them to premium. Guess it’s time to give the money to Spotify, for the price at least they offer original content. Slacker used to be good too, once they changed the name it’s been a free fall.
Likening the songs I driving when I get home
by lordduece on 2020/08/25 19:15
I do not know what changed but when I get homes I use to be able to hit the three bars and it took me. To a screen where I could mark songs of I like them or not bring back that feature it was great now all it. Shows is what songs played
Add more DJ's to stations
by Koolmoetee on 2020/08/23 04:50
I love this app. The music on all stations sound so crisp & clear. I really wish DJ's were added to 90's and 80's R&B stations and also on the classic stations. Other than that I'm content
What happen to you?!
by Heat 2012 on 2020/08/21 18:05
You guys self-destruct your name and made your name unheard of... sorry to say everything is horrible. I like Slacker when it was Slacker again from the beginning of times it was started!

Keep Crashing
by PossibleUpdates on 2020/08/17 15:20
Since October of 2019 my app has been crashing. It really pissing me off because if I’m paying for the service I expect to use it. I went a whole month of crashing then every other day crashing. Now it just don’t even load I have redownload the app several times. This will be my last month of slacker new online radio it’s bootleg.
New update needed

It didn't allow me to access the concert I paid for
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

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

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

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.

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
Overhaul

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???

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.

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!

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.
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 😐
Used to love. Now? Not so much.
by Ghost_Cloud on 2021/02/09 06:24
I've used slacker/Livexlive for a long time. But recently it's started pausing its music for no reason at all multiple times in a row. It also stops the music in the middle of the song or before the next song even begins and sits there and loads for as long as I allow it to sit there before exiting out of the app and restarting it. All while everything else on my phone is working perfectly fine with no issues at all. Now, it's telling me I can't cancel my subscription because there is an error trying to do so. It's rather annoying and I'm just trying to cancel it so I can go somewhere else at this point. Still a good app it's just not for me anymore.
USED to be great

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.

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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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!
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.
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.
Over developed
by Zombie slayers on 2020/10/07 12:25
Have this apps for years! Premium membership for years! This app is getting more and more confusing and hard to navigate. With each update it seems harder to find what you want, I understand they what you to go to someplace new and find more stuff they offer. Can’t fine tune your station thru app anymore at least I can’t figure out how. New buttons hidden icons, really? It’s not just me, was at work yesterday and recommend this app to a co worker few weeks ago. He said today and I quote “ what the hell! How to I play my station? Everything is jacked up!” I’m sure they will continue to make it more and more complicated then it needs to be, so is life. May need to start looking elsewhere for my music app. Seems like Every time I figure this thing out they change it and make it harder to use.
Support issues
by seikuro on 2020/10/16 16:02
I have had problems over the years trying to restart subscriptions through iTunes. This last time, my account would sit and idly spin if I tried in my new iPhone - no matter if I had tried to renew through the app or on the website Safari. I finally had to get on my desktop to renew it. I’m debating cancelling my service because, despite being relatively content with the product, I’m unhappy with the support I received from Frank this go-around. It saddens me because I’d had brand loyalty since the Slacker days.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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
