Editors' review

JetAudio Basic gives you the tools to manage multiple types of media through one versatile program with options for both video and audio files. With this program, you can maximize the potential of your equipment while also customizing the app to suit your specific needs.

Pros

Equalizer performance: The Equalizer included in this app works very well, and it will greatly enhance the quality of everything you choose to play. It allows you to hear individual instruments during playback, as well as distinct vocal tracks -- and it will greatly enhance the quality of your listening experience overall.

Automatic additions: When you're setting up this program, all you have to do is let it scan your computer for media files, and it will add them automatically. Even a large library can be added seamlessly using this feature, and you'll immediately have all of your audio and video files in the same place.

Cons

Poor video quality: While this program does play video files, its main purpose really seems to be audio playback. You certainly can play video through this app, but if that's your main intent, a more dedicated video program may be a better option.

Steep learning curve: This program's interface is not terribly attractive or intuitive. Experienced users will find their way around without too much trouble, but the learning curve is especially steep for newcomers to this type of software.

Bottom Line

JetAudio Basic provides a lot of nice features in a free and highly customizable package. But in order to really get the most out of this app, you need to have some experience with this type of program or dedicate some time to learning how to take advantage of all it has to offer.

    "Great...except for a few faetures - plus Watch Out"

    August 02, 2014   |   By Imogen7Ryan

    Version: JetAudio Basic 8.1.2

    Pros

    It is by far the best Music Management software for a free price tag. Loving the Equalizer, it really does make your Laptops speakers sound tons better! It is fast to start and stop, both actions are smoothly done. Very easy to scroll through albums and tracks, it even automatically grabbed the artist and track titles. And that's just scratching the surface.

    Cons

    Radio feature is rubbish, there are very few stations which are only downloadable in a .pls format which Jet doesn't play and VLC cannot either and that's saying something; so useless there.

    'Free Tracks' - yeah, the first 50 and then some of the prices of albums are way over priced, so a con there too.

    Now the WATCH OUT bit.... this program is so sneaky as it tries to get you to download stuff in all manner of ways: I had to be on super-vigilance-alert all the time as it changes tack to confuse. so, PLEASE be Careful.

    Summary

    Bar all the crap that Jet tries to sneakily install, it is a fantastic Music Management system and player. The Equalizer is the best bit giving you total freedom to mess around until you get the right sound and you can save it too.

    The layout or UI is pleasing on the eye - far more than the others and reliable. I have only scratched the surface, but I think there are lots more great stuff Jet can do. Try it, but you have been warned to vigillantly watch out for its tricks to get you to install stuff.... That's why it gets 4/5 stars. Good luck :-)
