Slacker Updated for the BlackBerry Storm

The folks at Slacker dropped us a line last night letting us know they'd be releasing an updated version of Slacker for the BlackBerry Storm. The biggest bullet point to highlight here in version 2.0.39 is the improved battery life, with the full change as follows:

  • Improved battery life up to 2x (over previous versions) while streaming (Slacker has seen Storm devices playing up to 9 hours over 3G with this build)
  • Improved usability enhancements to the interface, including a "Home" button to quickly access the station list
  • Added ability to toggle the explicit content filter (on/off) from the main menu
  • Addressed an issue where pausing a song for an extended period of time did not properly resume playback
  • Addressed an issue where phone calls or message alerts would prevent playback from resuming properly for some listeners
The updated Slacker will appear in App World soon. In the meantime, you can grab it by visiting Slacker.com on your BlackBerry's web browser.
