A litle something for all you Slacker Radio fans out there. The BlackBerry PlayBook version has been bumped up to v1.2.6, though no change log is noted for the release. Previously, I had some issues with skipping that appear to of have been introduced with PlayBook OS 2.0 so hopefully this release has some bug fixes for that. Either way, the update is available in App World right now.

Slacker Radio for BlackBerry PlayBook updated to v1.2.6


Since the update to OS 2.0, I am receiving the following message when trying to install Slacker in my PlayBook : "This item is not supported by your current device profile".

Any idea how to fix it?

Not sure if this is related, but when I first received the notification (via the PB notification icon) and clicked on it to automatically bring me to the Slacker product page in App World, App World didn't know about the new version, and told me I was up to date. This morning, however, App World does show me the newer available version, and allows me to upgrade.

So maybe you will also find that App World's behavior changes if you simply try again (later)?

I love Slacker... One thing is that I wish they would modify the layout to include an on screen volume control. Does anyone else feel the same way? I hate having to use the volume up/down buttons on a touch screen device.

pandora android app words, at least i think it does. it stops me at the intro screen because i have a canadian ip. still trying to find a way to fool it

They still haven't fixed the buffer problem when using the bridge. It still plays to 1:20 and the buffer hits a wall, the song ends and skips to the next one...and the cycle starts all over. I still have to use Slacker via the web. If they ever get the app working over the bridge they can have my $3.99 per month again.

Just discover that skipping issue while trying to use it in the car....very frustrating because i need my reggae in my VW!!!!! Hopefully someone has brought this up with them ...

Slacker Radio is great!

The 3 comedy channels are the best cure for the blues. No mather how low you feel, a few minutes of Larry the Cable Guy will cheer you right up. Garanteed!
