Slacker Contest!

** Breaking ** BlackBerry Storm owners click here >>

Though we have known for a while now that Slacker would be coming to BlackBerry smartphones, it was only earlier last month at CES 2009 when the official launch was made (read Press Release). Speaking of CES, while down on location in Vegas we we also recorded an awesome video overview of Slacker Mobile Application for BlackBerry smartphones by the company's Director of Marketing Communications (video after the jump).

Slacker Radio Plus: While Slacker Personal Radio on its own is awesome and free, upgrading to the Radio Plus Service provides a few big benefits, including unlimited skips, unlimited song requests and no audio or banner ads. The cost to upgrade is $3.99 per month (billed annually at $47.88).

Contest Time: Sweet! Slacker is offering us up 25 1-month subscriptions to Radio Plus to members of, so you can really take Radio Plus for an extended test drive. For your chance to win, you only need to do two things:

  • have a valid email address tied to an account setup at Slacker (ie. try the service!)
  • login to and make a comment to this blog post!

Contest entry closes Thursday night at midnight EST. The bad news is that Slacker is only in the USA, so that limits the the contest a bit (sorry readers from Canada and around the world!). Good luck to those who enter! Be sure to visit for more info and to register your account if you haven't done so already.

Win A Month of Slacker Radio Plus Service!



I use Slacker everyday & love it. I also have introduced many other BB owners to Slacker & they also use it on a daily basis. The only thing better would be Slacker Radio Plus!

I love slacker... every morning I wake up and use the create artist to find some comedy to start my day with a laugh.

When I work out I usually create a station with Europe or ac/dc.

Just love it.

I can't get it on my BB! :( It tells me I need to upgrade my OS, but I'm on a Mac, so evidently I can't upgrade my OS without buying some other software to allow me to run Windows on my Mac. Seems like too much of a hassle/expense for "free" radio. (Can anyone suggest another option?)

Awesome contest! I have been wanting to try out the premium edition since this app came out. I listen to it after work everyday to help calm me down. Great app and thanks to Slacker and Crackberry for this contest!

I have been using the free version of Slcker for awhile. I have been thinking of upgrading but still unsure. This would be perfect for me to give it a test drive before forking out the loot.

I use it daily, not having the commercials would be sweet for a month. I wonder if it's just a free month straight up or if there is any sort of stipulation. We will see.

This would be nice to win. I've been wanting to try the full version, but alas, I am broke and cannot.

Gotta love Slacker!! What an excellent free app. Listen to it everyday in the car and also on the labtop while doing hw!

Slacker is pure Awesomeness! I would love to have a 1-month subscription! Thanks Crackberry and Slacker!

Love me some Slacker Radio !!!! I'd Love to try the Plus for a while...And like everyone else I love Freebies !!!! Thanks Slacker......

Out of all the contests that you guys have run. This is by far the one I've wanted most. I have never won any of these contests. This would be huge!

I have been using Slacker on my PC for over a year and love it. It's made by the same team that developed MusicMatch in the early'ish Internet days.

Now, having Slacker on my BB Storm (although, it's not officially released on the Storm yet), is like a dream come true. I love this software and the music selection/quality is top notch.

I would love to have a free trial to show everyone where i work that has the commercial version how the subscription version works....Everyone i work with has a blackberry with slacker on it, so this could be a great opportunity to show them how it truly works!!!

I such a Slacker that this Slacker app will go well with my Slacker abilities, further stating how much of a slacker I really am.

I am your Slacker Man...

I've been using Slacker for a month and love it! Would definitely want to try the free 1 month subscription to Slacker Radio Plus!!!

i do love me some slacker, and have been rocking a non-compatable version, i can't wait til the storm version comes out!

After I found out XM charges extra for the "privileged" to stream your account on your Blackberry and Sirius, the service I actually have, doesn't even OFFER it, I stumbled on Slacker.

Slacker is leagues better than satellite radio, and it's making me consider whether I should just cancel Sirius and switch to a premium account with the better service.

Winning this contest would be sweet, also!

Been using Slacker for a long while in the office. We Have a dedicated laptop ripping out the tunes all day long. In our office we have very different tastes in music but Slacker deliverers. Now that I have it on my BB the Ipod gets less of a work out, in the car or just on the go. I can not wait for Summer to crank it up on the boat.

I just recently got my first Blackberry (Storm)...and i had been signed up on CB for at least 3 months prior to my purchase.....

i've been quite happy with BOTH decisions. I've poked around on slacker....and so far, i'm liking the service.....i'd LOVE to have a plus sub, to further see what slacker has to offer.


I'm supposed to be working right now, but what am I doing...Entering a contest to upgrade my Slacker account...

Let the Slacker-ness continue....

I've been using the free version and it would be so sweet to get an upgrade to first class like the way Seinfeld did in that episode where Elaine had to to stay in coach.

I've had Slacker for a month or so now and it's great when I'm at work. I would love to try the plus sub, maybe it will convince me to actually subscribe =)

It's had that "storm support coming soon" for over a month now! It would be a great thing in my phone but I can settle for just computer support for the time being. Now that I found the support it really is the perfect radio for me.

I bought the one year's subscription already, but I could surely use another month added on! Hook me up!

I think Slacker (and other similar streaming apps) will eventually kill standalone portable media players. Here's why:

While yes hard drives (and flash for that matter) have gotten bigger and bigger, there is a physical limit at the high end that will be reached. Having UNLIMITED music available via streaming (or cached) is far better.

I have about 3000 songs on my device, with a 16Gb Micro SD card. While I have a lot of tunes, that's still a tiny percentage of what's out there (kinda the same as above). I can create stations on the fly, get all sorts of related music that I might otherwise not have purchased - so better.

Bottom line - I'm finding my music usage is quickly trending towards all Slacker, all the time.

Love it.

i don't have an FM radio in my wrangler because i broke off the i use slacker as my "FM radio" when i want to listen to something besides CD's or my MP3's.

I have a Bold and I must say the sound quality of Slacker is better than my XM service. It would be cool to win a month of servcie.

SLACKER NATION!!!!! I use it more and more everyday and have turned a bunch of my friends on to it!! Best music out there!!!

I love Slacker Radio! I came from using an iPhone 3G when I used Pandora Radio all the time and then switched to a Blackberry where I absolutely love Slacker!!

Please enter me in this contest!

I used Pandora on my iPhone but when I switched to a Blackberry Bold downloaded Slacker and it's definitely one of the best apps out there!

I've been using Slacker on my Bold and PC since it has been released and love it. Pandora what?

I have found that slacker to be the best radio app for the bb yet. I love to get a free 1 month subscription.

I love slacker and use it several times a day. My poor ipod touch just sits and weeps and wishes it could take the place of my Storm and slacker.,


I use to be waiting on a pandora app for my phone... with SLACKER coming to the berry first it now runs my life and I dont even touch pandora anymore... THANKS SLACKER!!!

any idea on when full-on storm support is coming? works alright for the storm as is, but could be sooo much better. thanks guys!

Oh yes, Slacker is the best. I love to slack all day long. In fact, call me Mr. Slack. Have a fantastic day and keep on slackin'

Ironically, I looked at this app two days ago, and was thinking about trying it out! Looks like it would be kewl, since I travel weekly!

This is one of the best applications on the Blackberry. I have the same app on my iphone but its not the same since I can't minimize it and do other tasks. Also the caching feature is amazing!

I'm a manager of an AT&T local dealer retail store and I cannot tell you how many times Slacker's radio service alone has helped me seal the deal in selling Blackberry phones. I can only imagine if I had the Slacker Radio Plus service how many more people would be stunned by this amazing music app! Thanks Slacker and Crackberry!

i remember waiting for this service back when we thought it was coming out in october, when it finally came out a few weeks ago, I was ecstatic, and i'd love a free month!

Slacker is absolutely my favorite app on my Blackberry right now. I think that slacker has presented us with a new music revolution that will change the way ppl listen to there music forever. It definitely has for me.

After seeing the post on CB, I decided to give it a try. Its a great service and consistent quality as well. I have referred 4-5 friends who now use it as well.


Slacker is so much better than Pandora. I started using slacker and never looked back. Every person I meet who uses Pandora I tell them to check out slacker and they make the switch too. Would be sweet to have Premium!

Am new to the Slacker app, but looks like something I could spend a lot of time in..

Would be great to have mobile music for when I'm traveling.

Hi, I have to be honest. Never used Slacker. But the reviews are awesome and I love radio. I would love to try Slacker. :)
