I have been a pretty consistent user of Slacker since I started using their station caching feature in the subway. Once I upgraded to the plus subscription version of Slacker the service is much more usable. Still I was always annoyed that I had to update the station cache by plugging my BlackBerry into my PC since I never do that. A bit back Slacker released a version 3 of their app to Canada with wireless station caching and the promised it would be coming to the US soon. Well its here! It also brings a whole new look for the Slacker app at the same time.
From what I can tell they have also added the ability to sync your currently played song to Twitter along with some new options and setting pages. You can pick up the latest version at m.slacker.com and let me know if you notice any other changes!
I have a few pet peeves with Slacker that I hope are fixed in this version:
- I hope it no longer corrupts your SD card like version 2 did every once in awhile
- It was annoying that you could not start up the application if you had degraded data coverage
- I hated the fact that if you started the app and then exited it before the main screen showed up you had to start it all over again
- I also wish Slacker implemented the Bluetooth Headphone controls like
Keep the updates coming!
Thanks to Devin for sending this in!
