Slacker Radio Version 3.0 Coming Soon
A ton of companies are unveiling their latest and greatest gadget or software this week at CES. In October, Slacker Radio mentioned they were hard at work developing version 3.0 of their radio streaming software. CNET got a little preview for us of the new version at CES.
The biggest new feature is caching. When Slacker Radio caches music, it stores the music on your microSD card. Once a station is cached, you can sync it by choosing to "refresh cached stations." To take advantage of caching, you'll need a subscription to Slacker's premium Radio Plus service. Though, you can try it out for free before committing to a subscription.
Look for Slacker Radio version 3.0 to be available in a few weeks.
station caching IS NOT new, nor did it require a subscription. I have used the feature in the past, and it was great for travelling, but I don't know if it was great enough to pay the subscription for.
Isn't it the first rule of business to NOT take away features.
I use cache now, so what's new about that? Maybe the new feature is to sync the cache station wirelessly, which is not worth subscribing for.
Yes the new version caches it wirelessly...
Sun is right anytime you cached a station on old version you had to plug into your pc to be able to get it to come back, now you wont have to just refresh
