Slacker Personal Radio [Free - iTunes link] is now available in the Canadian App Store. While our friend's at CrackBerry.com got to enjoy the news a little sooner, thanks to Apple's currently speedier App approval process and iLounge's spot, TiPb didn't have to wait as long as we feared either.
As far as we know, this is the first streaming internet radio service available to Canadian iPhone users (blame our nightmarish licensing) and it includes some nice local content:
Slacker also tells TiPb that the 2.0 version is coming soon, and will provide station caching for iPhone and iPod touch. Can't. Wait.
Note: While the app is free for the first 30 days, a $5/month Slacker Plus subscription turns off the ads, turns on unlimited skips, and otherwise makes the service much more enjoyable and functional thereafter. More Plus features, after the break...
One small step for the internet, one giant leap for Canadian music.
