Earlier today, Slacker Radio sent out an email inviting everyone to come check out the new Slacker. I clicked through the email, saw the new site and then it dawned on me. Maybe with their new site launch, they also pushed their new app for BlackBerry 10 to BlackBerry World? As it turns out, that's exactly what happened.

Since 2006, our collective passion for music, commitment to improve, and determination to offer our users the best music experience possible, has brought us to this point. We are now able to offer our 4+ million users more than 13 million songs, the industry’s deepest customization tools, and our unique team of expert music curators and hosts who constantly update Slacker’s more than 200 genre and specialty stations. Gone are the days of hearing the same song over and over again. With Slacker, your music is always fresh, new and exciting.

Having taken the app for a spin quickly, I can say it's a pretty sweet native app. A bit basic in the styling mind you, but that's kind of what I like about it. It's nice and light, easy navigate and the app works great. If you're looking to check it out, hit the link below to grab it from BlackBerry World and don't forget to let us know what you think of the app.

I tweeted kevin and adam about this earlier. The app looks very slick. And works like silky smooth butter being a native app.

The only thing that bothers me, is they seem to have a Windows 8 Metro feeling to it.

Yeah, I am not digging the colour scheme either. Also I am not getting access to my playlists and there is no back button so you can't restart the song. It is nice and smooth though. On another note, I sideloaded the Android one last work and it works really nice too.

I'm so glad to hear that they are updated to/for #BB10. When we (USA) get the new phones, I won't miss a beat...

I don't know if they has been mentioned or not but if you are listening to Slacker or audio on your Z10 the volume decreases when a new messsage comes in (email or text is what I have tested so far)until you look at the message then the volume goes back up.

Has anyone else noticed this?

When trying to download on my Z10 says ""Unavailable for this device"?
Has happened with other apps. Anyone know why?

Like it.. but seems like some features are missing like artist profiles, lyrics, etc.

Still, been looking forward to this one!

Seriously? I give these guys a 1 star because they don't have any of the premium paid features working and somehow they make it a 5 star rating. I read the other reviews that were very critical of the same reasons and somehow they are 5 star also. How can this be.

Wasn't slacker radio available for the PlayBook a while ago? it isn't in the blackberry world store as far as I can see :-(

Unfortunately this version doesn't support station caching like their BB7 version, which I really like for listening to music in the car.

No caching like the BBM7. I cancelled my subscription and emailed Slacker Support. I used the caching function on my frequent road trips. I hope the release an update to address this...
