Slacker Completely Overhauls Its Service and Apps
Slacker today announced a significant refresh of its online and mobile music streaming service. Slacker 4.0 promises to put the service on more equal footing with rivals such as Spotify and Pandora with its new user interface and Music Guide. The Guide is a tool that music lovers can use to more easily discover music, news, sports, and other radio channels. It is also easier to view station, artist, song, and album pages, as well as to share content via social networks and email. The application itself is free to download for Android, BlackBerry 10, and iOS devices. Listeners can stream music for free as long as they don't mind ads, or choose to pay $3.99 per month for ad-free listening, or $9.99 for ad-free listening, on-demand song choice, and offline caching.

In what way is Slacker 'behind'?
I have to admit that wording surprised me.
