Hands-On: Slacker Radio for webOS

by Dieter Bohn Fri, 08 Jan 2010 12:11 am EST

heard word from Kevin C Tofel of jkOnTheRun that Slacker Radio was coming to webOS, so I hustled on over there and got a demo. Good news: it's almost completely baked and should be available within a month or so. Bad news: Slacker announced that they'd be offering offline access to music for a variety of platforms, but webOS isn't going to be one of them at launch.

Still and all - it looks like a solid music stream app to me,

Confused? Here's the score: Slacker is a music streaming service much like Pandora. However, Slacker offers a few benefits like curated genres, a much larger music library (nearly four times the size of the 'leading competitor,' they say), and a pro account you can pay for that will let give you even greater control over your music. I don't want to say that Pandora has been getting a little stale in the music that it has been offering me lately ....but I just said it.

Those BlackBerry kids have been loving Slacker for some time now -- soon webOS users will be able to join in the fun.
