U.S.-based interactive Internet radio service Slacker has released its new Slacker Radio application for the iPhone and iPod touch. Similar to services provided by Pandora Radio and Last.fm, Slacker gives users access to over 100 stations pre-programmed by radio professionals, along with the ability to pick stations based on genre, artist, or to create new stations based on a specific band or artist, which also contain music from similar artists as recommendations. In addition, the app allows users to view artist bios as well as album art and reviews. Slacker Radio is available as a free download from the App Store.
