RadioSure enables you turn your computer into the farthest reaching radio in the world. From this app, you can listen to radio stations from all across the planet. Whatever your musical taste or talk radio interest, you stand a good chance of finding something that you'd love to listen to once you install RadioSure.
Fantastic station selection: There are over 17,000 stations available through RadioSure.
Station recording: A great feature is the ability to easily record the stations that you want to listen to. This is particularly helpful if there is a talk program that you enjoy, which doesn't archive all of its episodes online, because now you can just record the program live. There is a limitation to the number of streams you can record simultaneously in the free version, but it increases if you upgrade.
Strong feeds: The feeds are strong and load quickly and effectively. There were no signal cutouts during testing across a broad variety of stations.
Dated, bland interface: The interface is not very attractive or modern. In fact, it is plain and out-of-date looking. While it is possible to navigate using the interface as is, it certainly doesn't feature any of the graphic advancement seen in some of this app's competitor products.
If you're looking to listen to some international radio from your desktop computer, RadioSure is a great way to do that. The app works well, has a good selection, and although the packaging isn't the prettiest, it certainly gets the job done.
Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of RadioSure 2.2.1042.
RadioSure features more than 20000 stations and a quick and reliable search for your favorite radio stations. It supports most of the Internet radio formats - MP3, WMA, OGG, and AAC. You can record what you are listening to and package it into separate song files. It also features Unicode support - all domestic stations are perfectly visible and searchable.
What's new in this version:
Version 2.2.1042 includes the following enhancements:
- Does what it says and has a ton of stations.
- Ability to add your own stations.
- The stations I was looking for were not working.
I got it primarily to listen to BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra without being tied to a browser. Although they have the stations listed, they don't seem to be connecting. Not a huge problem though, I just googled for the stations' urls and used the "Add new station" feature to set them up and now they work no problem.
True. I bought a copy successfully years ago, but recently I tried to get another one for a friend and ran into the problem you have. Instead of a registration code, you get an email saying the "licensing information will be sent to you shortly", but it never happens. They just take the money for the software (which isn't much thankfully) and don't give you the registration information.
