Just in case Pandora wasn't good enough for you, Slacker, Inc. (one of the best names for a company ever) has just announced the launch of their Slacker Radio app for Android. Users with Android smartphones can now download the app from the App Market. Like most other custom radio apps, Slacker is 100% free to download and use.
Slacker Radio sets itself apart from the herd by offering several cool features not seen on similar applications. Artist biographies, album reviews, and song lyrics are available to users at a glance, and the app also contains the ability to 'peek ahead' and preview music. The app also lets users totally ban artists and songs from their station.
Customers who download Slacker will also be able to share their radio stations with other users via SMS, email, or MMS. Altogether, it sounds like a solid addition to the App Market. I'm not sure if it'll ever replace Pandora at the center of my heart, but it'll definitely get a trial download on my Android smartphone.

The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
