One of the top free BlackBerry radio apps is adding a Premium service, allowing users to search for specific songs or entire albums (do people even say albums anymore?) and play them On-Demand. With this new update, Slacker is geared to launch themselves above competitor Pandora and compete with the likes of Rhapsody.
Along with On-Demand functionality, Slacker users will see some other options available with their premium purchase.
Some features included are:
Unlimited song skipping
Create custom playlist
Deeper track listing
Caching songs on your device
With this premium upgrade comes a cost to the tune of $9.99/month, which is $6.00 more than their Plus tier. A release date is looking to be somewhere in the October/early November time frame. If any updates to this article show up, we'll get them out to you.
Are you ready to shill out ten bucks a month to hear your favorite music? I might, but I know my 16GB microSD card contains all of my favorite tunes when I want to listen to them. I am interested to hear how many of you will jump on the premium upgrade. And, how many of you scoff at the idea of paying for music?
