Slacker Radio has been extracted from the TMo HD2 Rom. This comes to us from TMartin of PPCGeeks and has also made its way to XDA. Even though it’s ported from a WVGA device, I’ve tried it on a VGA Fuze running 6.5 and it seems to work pretty well. You can sign up for a free account on your phone. There’s a 6 song sip per hour limit (which apparently you can get passed by just switching stations and going back to it again. As you can see there’s a slight graphics overlap but hey, I’ll take it. oh and tapping on the album gives you lyrics (only partial in the free version), bio and album review and it’s all put together well. In VGA I can’t see how to skip tracks and the app is set to minimize and not exit – you need to go into the menu to force exit; to close the app (multitasking at its finest- take that crApple!:))
If you don’t know what Slacker is, it’s like Pandora or any other streaming radio service. There’s a paid subscription version with added features and benefits if you want more, which you can read about on their site.
