Slacker has redesigned their iOS app to better fit with iOS 7. Included is a whole new design focused on making navigation of their millions of songs faster and more intuitive.

Change The Way You See Your Music With Updated Slacker Radio

Slacker, the app that provides you with all your music needs, has received an update on the iPhone and iPod versions. You’ll now be able to enjoy your favorite music and radio stations with an all new visual interface. Also new in the update is the debut of the Slacker Music Guide.

Slacker listeners will discover more music, news, talk and sports than ever before. Look for the visual tile layout to view station, artist, album and song pages and enjoy improved functionality and overall stability as you experience the most complete music service available.

While Pandora got the top billing when Apple demoed iOS 4 multitasking, other music services are also updating their apps to support background play.

Multitasking in iOS 4 allows compatible apps to run in the background while another app runs in the foreground. Apps in the background can continue to perform tasks such as play music streams.

Slacker Inc has announced that its personal radio application, Slacker Radio, has been updated to support multitasking and is available now for free on the App Store. The currently Europe-only Spotify is also headed for background-centric adjustment with the company announcing on its blog that an update has been submitted to Apple. The blog post goes on to suggest that a “surprise” will also be included in the update to thank users for their patience.

As well as music streaming, GPS navigation apps and social networking clients are also popular background enabled apps. Expect to see many more updates of this type in the coming days.

radio-plus-on-whiteI don’t know how excited you are about it, but Slacker just updated their mobile app! For those of you who have never used Slacker, it is basically Pandora but with a larger library… which means less repeats and more awesomeness. In their own words, “The Slacker Radio application for iPhone offers listeners millions of songs, high-quality sound and an intuitive interface,” said Jonathan Sasse, senior vice president of marketing at Slacker. “With new features and sleek usability upgrades we are continuing to make the listening experience even more powerful and easy to use.”

To celebrate the update, Slacker has given me a 1 year subscription to Slacker Radio Plus (full description here) to give out however I please. Mwahaha. So here is what I would like you, the reader to do. I am looking for some good music, and I want you, dear reader, to tell me what to listen to.

I am going to take each entry (example entry – CCR) and play it as a Slacker playlist. The best Slacker playlist to come from the artist or song that you give me wins the prize. I’ll listen to any genre, as long as it’s good music, so don’t ask me what my favorite genre is.

Good Luck! Send me some good stuff… and thanks in advance.

All entries should either be posted in the comments section of this page or sent to me via Twitter (@148apps). Contest will close Sunday night with the winner being selected on Monday to much fanfare. One note from Slacker… the winner must have a valid email address already configured for Slacker (i.e. they already use Slacker with it)… so go get one, they are free.

Rule 1. Enter as many times as you want.
Rule 2. Tell all of your friends to send me their music entries
Rule 3. Don’t send me anything from the Baja Men.
