Slacker Radio Now Officially Supports The Storm

slacker Not sure what took Slacker so long but their mobile radio application is now supported on the Storm. That is not to say that you could not get it working before but now it is “Official.” :) The major difference is that the application now makes use of the Storms touchscreen.

Just as a reminder about Slackers features. Slacker Mobile for the BlackBerry Storm offers:

  • Free music library featuring millions of songs
  • Optimized for Storm Touch Screen operation
  • Vertical and Horizontal modes
  • High-quality stereo playback from cached stations and all streaming wireless connections
  • Over 100 professionally programmed genre stations
  • Create custom artist stations
  • Station caching for music playback anywhere, greatly improved battery life and accelerated application performance
  • Multi-tasking – listen to music while doing email
  • View artist biographies and photos
  • View album art and reviews
  • “Peek Ahead” artist and album preview
  • Pause and skip songs
  • Rate songs as favorites
  • Ban songs and artists you don’t like

I am still kind of peeved that you cannot cache radio stations OTA but I guess they had to keep the carriers happy. Its just that with BES I rarely connect my device to my PC…

To pick up Slacker just head to from your BlackBerry browser or head to from your desktop.

  1. have only had it installed for a day, and haven’t had a chance to play around with it, but it works on my storm

  2. Every such app has left me wanting, maybe this will do less so.

  3. I’m really liking Slacker so far. I have it on both 8830 & 9530. Disappointed by the lack if support for Blackberry physical keys. Volume up/down only work when not locked, mute doesn’t mute/pause, skip doesn’t work, etc. And I wish it would integrate into the OS like the default media player. Its really nice to have “Now Playing…” in the menu of every app, and it must be possible cuz other apps like SlideLock and Poynt can do it.
