Editors' Review

+

Nexus Radio is a free music software application that lets users download music and discover streaming radio stations from around the world. It also doubles as a media player, and recording tool that can record in-line audio from your computer, or from the radio streams to which you're listening. In addition, the app plays fetch--create a filter and it will capture songs or artists according to your keyword choice. That spells "free music discovery" to us

.

Like competing music jukebox software, Nexus Radio has its own plug-in architecture that allows third parties to create their own add-ons. One of the most popular applications of that has been visualizations, which users are able to add or remove from the player. The app also offers drag-and-drop functionality for creating your own playlists from music stored on your hard drive, and there are built-in tools for saving clips as MP3s and editing clips.

Nexus Radio has an attractive interface that offers plenty of functionality without being overly complex. The main screen has built-in volume control, menu options, and a dropdown for on-the-fly burning. Stations are listed alphabetically, but other than the name, there's really no additional information, so you'll have to hunt and peck to find the stations you like. It's best to add stations as favorites for easier access with further use. The app isn't the most polished we've seen, but it offers a simple way to save songs and create playlists of tracks heard on Internet radio.

    "Malwarebytes Pro blocked this program."

    May 31, 2014   |   By whyswon

    Version: Nexus Radio 5.6

    Pros

    Impossible to say.

    Cons

    My pro version of Malwarebytes, which I consider to be the best antispyware program out there, blocked Nexus Radio from being installed, so it's probably full of spyware.

    "good, if it loads"

    December 05, 2013   |   By phred0

    Version: Nexus Radio 5.6

    Pros

    Used it before and was an outstanding product.

    Cons

    Reinstalled it after a year, and found you had to jump through hoops to get on sight. Home page more complicated, and was unable to use because o Windows 7. Reverted back toe XP sp3 and it loaded, but unable to find radio stations. Uninstalled it, to make room for a page that works.

    Summary

    Why upgrade to a fancier product design? Leave as is and work on bugs and fixes.

    "trys to dominate, too "in your face"."

    October 30, 2013   |   By annieout

    Version: Nexus Radio 5.6

    Pros

    if you like choices, you got 'em with this program.

    Cons

    it seemed that nexus insisted on presenting itself on screen everytime i moved to different window or program, like a little kid demanding attention. i have time and patience for many things, but nexus is not one of them.

    "Worked for a while, then stops!"

    March 09, 2012   |   By RobnCaruso24

    Version: Nexus Radio 5.6

    Pros

    I love the selections and the quantity of them available.

    Cons

    After listening to a few stations while working the stations just disappear and I would have to try to locate another station. I would have loved to use it while working.

    "Good Radio Player but a little too busy"

    January 29, 2012   |   By RogerCary

    Version: Nexus Radio 5.6

    Pros

    Has a very extensive list of radio stations & features.

    Cons

    Streams ads on its windows. Quite often the station index will produce duplicate entries. Has a little bit too much going on for a radio player. Whenever the program updates you must sign in again with your user name & password which is a slight hemorrhoid.

    Summary

    I use Nexus Radio for its vast list of stations then I "export" the ones I like into Screamer Radio which is a basic but excellent player & has a much smaller footprint.
