Cut it out (by Joshua Auriemma)
Stop with the "minor fix" updates. We know you’re just tying to get a new set of ratings. At least specify what you’ve patched.
     
Almost the perfect music choice! (by Fourdafunofit)
I love this app and have been using it forever. Finally broke down when I was using it for a party because the commercials were killing the mood and thought I was gonna get ripped off. But that is the best $30 bucks ever because it seemed to expand all my stations to include newer music and the no commercials really makes a difference when you are in the middle of a workout or a house party. The only thing I would need to make it perfect is the ablitity to play the exact song you want when you create a station. Seems like if you put a specific song then it is purposefully pulled or put way back in the rotation for that station. It would also be cool if you could build a playlist inside of pandora of tagged songs. I use to use the free app to find music to download. If I could do this I would only use pandora anytime I had wifi or good signal syrength.

This is one of my most useful apps. EXCELLENT job! (by John LaTessa)
This is one of my absolute favorite apps. There is only one thing I could ask for that would make it better. I’d like to see a way to export my recordings. If there’s already a way to do this, I don’t see it. And if there isn’t, that is the one thing that would make this app perfection! With the iTunes File Sharing feature, it should be easy. Please make it happpen!
     
Excellent (by Praetorian269)
Only way to improve it would be to allow exporting of recorded shows.

Best radio app out there.

Love the updates guys. Great job!

Was such a great app, then they updated (by NCGuy28)
Now quite buggy, especially with cashed content. This is exactly why I pay for Slacker. It now plays cashed content in the same order every time. It also resumes cashed play at the beginning every time. So, if you really love that first song, you’re in luck!

I may be canceling my subscription. It’s a shame.
     
Buggy cached updates, highly repetitive, and gets stuck on pause (by iPhonerarooni)
I’m a premium subcriber and generally like the app but it has some serious problems and I may not renew my subscription. Namely, it often won’t update cached stations, even a week after they’ve been updated. (I’ve contacted customer support and they are clueless). It’s also incredibly repetitive, particularly on the comedy channels. It keeps playing the same routines over and over again. Finally, it often won’t resume a piece after a pause, so you have to miss the rest and skip to the next song. There are some serious bugs going on here…
