    Slacker Radio is a pretty good music streaming application. It has all the songs and artists you could hope for, and you have the option of customizing your stations. Occasionally when the screen locks due to inactivity, the application will freeze when I try to unlock the screen and needs to have a force close. Also, it is a bit annoying that even with the premium subscription there will be 3 second commercials, telling me that I am listening to Slacker Radio.
    Overall I love Slacker and hope that the app continues to approve.

    I started out with XiiaLive, but quickly moved onto Pandora because XiiaLive kept buffering while in my truck.

    I like Pandora, but the limit on 40hrs per month and constant repeats was getting to me. Not to mention that every time I demoted a song it would go back to a song by my seed artist.

    Now I'm trying Slacker. I really like it on the PC. Much better seeding setup. Larger variety of music. Better recommended music. But as far as the app on my phone its complete crap. Constantly force closes. I finally just uninstalled it from my Streak. Hope they fix the bugs soon as I have been reading nothing but bad reviews for the Slacker Android App.
