** 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 CrackBerry.com, 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 CrackBerry.com 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 Slacker.com for more info and to register your account if you haven't done so already.

Yo Yo Yo show me some love

I've had a blackberry for sometime; started with the Pearl and now moved on to the Storm. I've just really started utilizing Crackberry.com and started to download apps; second day browsing around and what do I see? Slacker...download...and it just makes me want to be on all night adding all kinds of apps to my phone! How awesome!

brayndeded

Im a HUGE Slacker......uh...fan!!
mornings start off with some 80s/90s rock to pump me up for work, then jam through the day on some great blues rock (which I might add, is very hard to find on most net stations). Then close the night with some chillin smooth jazz and meditation music...how can it get much better then this??? Oh, I know....FREE!!
thanks Slacker!

Starku

...is a fun way to hear new music you haven't before, and it nice to use if your working out. (Yes, I take my Berry to the Gym, but I leave it at home when I go on a run...) I would love to have Slacker Plus for a bit. I would like to know what more it has, but I'm a poor college student (with a Berry, ironic?) and can't justify Plus... But I might have to if I demo it and like it...

burntorange817

i would love to get this free month! thanks for the opportunity!

Nondas Roussakis

I love Slacker on my BB Bold. A free month will be a plus!!!!

demonsun

S3th13

casisthefirst

casisthefirst

how come Ive never heard of this thing??

alex8404#CB

I have been playing with the new Slacker Radio for the Storm. Now my wife will never get my attention......

eMpTy43

This program kicks @$$!!!!! I was previously using FlyCast but Slacker's program is oh so much better!

leviatus

Would be nice to try out the full service.

OC Pcar

This app is da bomb!!

jscarfone

I sure am happy I found that Slacker's ready for the Storm :) A free month would really be the icing on the cake!

thed0cb

im sooo ready to play with this on my storm

Somguynco

Glad this is finally out for the Storm. Looking forward to loading it and trying it out!

killyourbooks

i was so sad i could'nt enter this contest because i had the storm...then they released it for the storm and i literally came straight here to enter
haha
keep up the great work crackberry!

smithsdot

It's my birthday, shouldn't that count for something.

TheFarmer

I love Slacker and I love Crackberry.com!

cdodge24

I would love to try it out free for a month!!!

jimmy3g

Sweet! I love slacker radio and not that its available for the storm. Double plus!

brittkimsmom

I think Slacker is absolutely great!! They rarely have commercials. The music is awesome and there is plenty of stations to choose from!!!! It sounds awesome on my 9000 Bold!!!! It would be awesome to have a 1 month subscription for free!! Thanks!!!

TunedFish

this is a great app. If it would broadcast news, it would be perfect.

ExclusiveTSX

This seems like such a good idea!!

joedirt2217

Excited to download and try!

Technofan7

gimme gimme gimme!!!!!!!!!!!!

bikerider

Been using the basic app since it came out, works great aside from a bit of buffering. But if you cache a few stations this is not an issue.

mswava

I have been around for many years and Slacker has really hit the mark. I waited on the edge of my seat for the release for the Storm. I guess GOOD THINGS come to those who can WAIT.

Xberry

This looks like one of those 'must have' services for the Storm. Just loaded yesterday, and would like to try the Plus service to determine if it's worth the extra cost. A yearly subscription committment is a little lengthy, but may be worthwhile.

BB_Storm4me

I'm Stormin with Slacker and showing it to all my BB buddies. Would love to win a plus account and show it off!

Devonantczak

I just downloaded the official app for my storm and its great. I might buy the Plus even if I don't win it free for a month.

eversch

I just tried out the free version of Slacker and it is awesome!!! I am considering trying the Plus version just to see if it is that much better! Everyone should give it a shot!

Tavox

Finally for the storm! We are getting more love lately. :)

AndyMP

This sounds great! Would love to try it out :)

jjphilly

Downloaded about an hour and I must say Slacker is really good!

Bigmck4u

Would love to try this app.

zoxxo

Looks pretty cool. Kind of like a super internet radio station with lots of channels...

BabiCakes

I've tried almost every mobile radio program there is....the one I love the most is Slacker.

I love the fact that you can store content to listen to when you don't have a connection. This is one app I'd love to win a subscription to!!!

Topher227

Slacker is great, and a free sub would be great too!

Torino216

no skips that would be worth it

Torino216

free radio would be awesome

y2bandit

This is nice. Listening on the Storm while on the road or sitting in the hospital would coming in handy especially when you're not near a wall or have a charger.

Eollie

love bein able to have slacker on my storm now!

lions80#CB

i've never used slacker radio before, but im willing to give it a shot. Its great that they have a version for us storm owners.

hardee

Slacker has completely changed my workday! I'll plug my BB in to a charger and just sit and listed to some tunes all day long. I love that it will run in the background so I can still use my blackberry for blackberry stuff, too. :)

one4thewings

I've heard of slacker radio before but never looked into it. It looks like a great idea. I'm going to download it to my Storm right now.

How exciting - I used to listen to Pandora when I could listen to streaming audio at work - but no longer can, and was impatiently awaiting them to offer their service on verizon - but as of yet, they're still only offering on at&t and sprint. THANK YOU SLACKER!

thenard

Always carry my iPod, but thought I'd try Slacker radio. Incredible! Love the fact that I can listen to music now without having to carry my iPod and a separate set of earphones. I'm really enjoying this app!

LuayS

4ever9er

This is by far the best app for my blackberry! It is a MUST for anyone living out here in Montana as we are about 5 years behind on technology. My freinds are just blown away. This is too awesome!
Win or lose I will upgrade to the PLUS version... so "pick me!"

Joshua Rancel

So I just tried Slacker for the first time today. It is unbelievable. I actually went ahead and signed up for the Plus after about 30mins of use. Great Product and recommended highly.

Rancel

Slacker Plus is wonderful. I went ahead and made about 10 custom channels and they work beautiful. It actually plays songs that i want to hear and shows signs of getting smarter. Being able to skip as many times as I want is wonderful too but I find the more I use it the less I skip anyway haha.

steve0423

I WANT THE FREEBIE!!!

rsdean0001

Please enter me for the opportunity to win one of these.

Xenoryst

love slacker. I use it everyday to and from work. I work at the Denver International Airport and have a long bus ride to and from work. Slacker and Crackberry make the ride much more bearable. Keep up the good work on all fronts and i look forward to rocking my Black Label Society station and my local favorite Devotchka. Cheers to all of you guys and your hard work bringing awesome information and products to little guys like me...ROCK ON!!

pbarrett

Would love to try this out!

pwSociety

Just got it for the Storm and am SO happy! Since XM elimiated the only station I subscribed to them for in the first place, I've been looking for a reasonable replacement. I think Slacker is going to work perfectly!

afischoff

I just downloaded Slacker on my Storm and love it! Thanks so much!!

ChuloMxcn

Such a great way to explore more music and listen to great ones!!!

DisturbedG

This is awesome just signed up for Slacker and enjoying the 90's Rock. If only they had a Punk station that would make me weep!

DisturbedG

Been playing with Slacker this afternoon and enjoying the 90's Rock and Metal stations! If only there was a Punk Station would my life be complete.

Amazing app and would love to try the preimuim service

elkosupertech

Loved to program. Now hoping I am lucky as well

NikkiFine

I love Slacker! I'm always jamming while I get ready in the morning, and it puts me to sleep at night. I work for a Verizon retailer and it's an awesome selling tool to non-crackberry addicts like ourselves...

thatsmethomasb

I love it. I'm so glad they came out with a 'storm official' version!

azrchrd#CB

Just what I was looking for, a radio on my BB!

steelbully

This App is great! Works really smoothly.

jasontcurtis

I am the proud owner of an IPOD 12BG IPod classic and love it. However since downloading Slacker I have had little to no use for the IPOD as the music on slacker is every bit as good as what I have placed on it. This is the best app EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you slacker.

willbill

great serviceand great sound on my storm
