Slacker Radio today released a major update of its an Android app. Version 4.0 is a visual overhaul that’s given the app a different look and feel. Users who hate change, need not worry, as core features of the app seem to have remained the same.
Slacker Radio CEO Jim Cady spoke glowingly about the new look in a statement:
“Slacker is the most complete music service on earth, with 10 times the music of Pandora, expert-programmed stations Spotify can’t touch, and personalization that satellite services only dream of.”
“We’ve quietly built a scalable business with more than a half-million paying subscribers and more than four million monthly average users,” Cady said, adding that 2013 “will be a blockbuster year for Slacker as we ramp up our marketing efforts and take the service to a broader audience.”
The update puts me in the Windows Phone mindset as it represents many of the same visuals such as “Live Tiles.” However, the whites and blues painted all over the app gives it a much lighter tone that peels away from the gloomy dark tones seen in the previous version.
What about you guys, do you like the new look Slacker Radio? If not, why?
