Don’t be a Slacker this Mother’s Day

Ok guys, Mother’s Day is this Sunday. If you order from Amazon, there is still time to overnight your gift (you can’t go wrong with the Kindle).

Or…you could win your mom a free subscription to Slacker Radio Plus. In order to celebrate Mother’s Day, Slacker has created a special radio station for Mom and they are allowing us to give away five 1-year subscriptions to their Radio Plus service.

If you have never heard of Slacker, some of you Android fans might be familiar with Pandora. Slacker allows you to listen to free personalized radio on your mobile phone, with millions of songs from 1000s of artists. The services are similar, but Slacker offers 4x the music catalog of Pandora. This is because they work with the labels and they constantly provide fresh content.

The application is free for anyone to download(see QR code), 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.
  • Station caching: This let’s you enjoy your station whether connected or not and gives you about 5x the battery life vs. streaming.

How to win

Happy Mother's Day!
