During CES we met up with the Slacker Radio guys and got an early look at the newest version of their Android app. I walked away impressed and made Slacker Radio my first choice for streaming music on my Nexus One. The application is free for anyone to download, but users can also sign up for a Radio Plus account with premium features.
The benefits of Radio Plus include:
- No ads: Upgrade and you’ll never have to hear an audio ad or see a banner ad again! You’ll enjoy unlimited and uninterrupted listening with Slacker Radio Plus.
- Unlimited skips: With Slacker Radio Plus you can skip as many songs as you want. Basic Radio listeners are limited to 6 song skips per hour, per station.
- Complete song lyrics: Want to sing along? Slacker Radio Plus subscribers get complete lyrics to all available songs. You can read the lyrics as you listen to your favorites.
- Unlimited song requests: Create perfect custom stations by requesting an unlimited number of your favorite songs. Simply search for any artist and pick the songs you like to add to your station.
Slacker Radio has generously offered us 10 Radio Plus subscriptions and we are giving them away to our readers who try out the app.
