At one time i use to listen to both of theses Music apps first on my BB Curve an then on my Android Phones.But as time went on

 

other good music apps came about. So i did'nt listen to them as much.  An my favorate two apps are now Tune in Radio an

 

Winamp. But i thougt i might give em a try again so i looked on the review boards on each of them an things diddn't look to good

 

as many users or Paying subscribers area sayin there having many issues songs skipping badly an some of them not playing at

 

all an as i said there are subcribers that are Paying for a year subscription for the higher Qaulity Music sound an No adds but it

 

is'nt any better than the free Version.   So i thougt i'd ask on Here what our Contribitors think about the Two Apps.  Good , Bad , Or

 

Give me Something Else.

I use to only use Pandora.  However when the Pandora app started have problems I gave Slacker a chance.  After the switch I haven't looked back.  Pandora has a music time-out, after so long of inactivity it goes into a sleep mode.  My wife uses Pandora still on her phone and there is nothing worse than falling asleep to light music, then being rudely interupted by LOUD advertisements. 

 

The two programs are very similar, but try them both out and see which you like.

I haven't had good experiences with Pandora on my X.  Slacker works great.  Also slacker was doing a program about a week or two ago on their facebook page where you get 1month free premium for liking their page.

That was one of those small details about Pandora that turned me away from them.  I still use it from time to time, but since I used the Free Premium month with Slacker it's won me over.

Also with pandora it seems like it likes to play the sames songs so you have to make a bunch of channels to get a good variety but with slacker it seems like there is a better variety.
