The folks from Slacker just let us know there is an update to the Slacker Radio mobile application that extends the same benefits to all BlackBerry users that rolled out to Storm owners two weeks ago. This update provides a noticeable improvement for Curve, Bold and Tour owners. Version 2.0.45 features:
- Improved battery life up to 2x (over previous versions) while streaming
- 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
The update is available by visiting Slacker.com from the BlackBerry mobile browser today, available soon on AppWorld and via an update notification over the coming week to the existing application. When you visit from your browser, make sure your browser identification is set to BlackBerry (vs. IE or FireFox) so you get their mobile site.
