I was wondering if those of you who have been using Android on other devices have seen better performance with one over the other. I used both on my pre and always had better luck with slacker as far as stability. What im finding strange is now pandora works great with my epic but slacker only plays one song before freezing up. Any input would be great.
Slacker is better if you go on the website and customize it. I'm still on my 1free year of premium. It's sweet.
I removed slacker on my epic, however. While using bluetooth it will crash the OS causing it to reboot radio, stats, memory card, etc. The whole phone resets. It's really been bother me so I got rid of it. Also, it'll stop audio playback but continue to play within the app.
Pandora doesn't have as many issues with me on my phone. Pandora will sometimes reset the phone during bluetooth playback on close. I don't know what the issue is for now.
I have both Slacker and Pandora Premium services. Both have similarly excellent audio quality and user interfaces but I seem to use Slacker 90% more often than Pandora. I love it's music selection and the caching feature really seals the deal.
Rumor has it that they will also have an On-Demand service in the near future: Slacker Premium Radio to offer on-demand music | MP3 Insider - CNET Reviews
Yeah I use both as well and find that they both perform great. Slacker has a more diverse music selection in my opinion and cache ability although the commercials do suck. Pandora is very straight forward and works consistently.
