    Yeah, it's pretty frustrating that they are ignoring the WP8 user base for some reason. It's now going on 6 months since they released this crappy app with not one single update since then. They managed, however, to get the BlackBerry version ported over - sigh.

    Before I gained some sense and switched to Windows Phone from Android, I was a paid user of Slacker. In fact, the availability of the Slacker app on WP8 was one of the reasons it made it a bit easier for me to switch because I got a lot of use out of it. Then I found out that they could pretty much care less about Windows Phone users (as evidenced by their 6 month update shun when, at the same time, they blitzed every other platform with their new app redesign). The very worst about it isn't just from a design standpoint. It's also from a functionality standpoint. The features you PAY for are NOT available in this half-assed, buggy, "current" version of the WP8 Slacker app. No Playlists, no downloading offline content, etc..). I cancelled my subscription with them a few months ago and left them a somewhat scathing review on the Windows App Store (not that they seem to be listening anyway).

    Gee - thanks so much Slacker.

    I had a paid subscription to Slacker back when I used BlackBerry. I did not renew my subscription when I switched to Windows Phone for the same reason as you.

    I decided to subscribe to Nokia Music+ instead.

    I do like it. It has good variety, offline mode and unlimited skips.

    I have the Slacker Radio app on my Lumia 920 and you can download stations for offline listening. I've done it. Last time I asked Slacker when they were going to update their Windows Phone app, they said they were working on it--that was months ago. I wish they'd hurry up already. I still like their music mixes better than any other service I've tried, including Nokia Music.

    It's not even a port, it's a native app. There are some things missing from the new app. You can't choose to ban just the song or ban the entire artist from a station like the old app. I agree, though, they need to update the WP8 app, but keep all the old functionality.

    Just talked through email to a slacker support representative. He assured me there are future plans for an updated app for WP. He said right now there is no concrete release date as the platform has not caught on as much as they'd like to warrant rushing the process.
