Streaming radio app Slacker Radio has released a major update taking them up to version 4.0. No details are provided regarding any under the hood improvements, but the user interface has received a major overhaul. Incorporating elements of the Holo design guidelines, the new interface utilizes a blue and white theme that matches up with an overhaul of their web site.


Users can select their own music to build stations or use Slacker’s curated lists for all types of moods or genres. Slacker also has access to some premium names like ABC and ESPN to go with their music which they claim is 10 times larger than their nearest competitor. You can listen for free if you are willing to put up with some crippled features and ads.

    I’d rather just keep Jango, at least I hear music from desired artist more often on theirs than I do on Pandora or Slacker and it’s 100% FREE!
