Editors' review

RadioSure allows users to tune into radio stations from around the globe and even record their favorite programs. With a simple interface and excellent performance, this was a surprising and fun download.

The program's interface is incredibly simple, though possibly overwhelming at first. All 12,000 of the radio stations are listed, with a traditional media player layout at the bottom. While we would have liked to see better ways to filter the stations, the search menu did a great job of narrowing our queries to specific programs, stations, and cities we were looking for. The program does not offer a Help file, but we found it intuitive enough that any level of user should be able to get the hang of the radio. Radio stations were categorized by style of programming, call numbers, city, and language. Once one was selected, the connection was fast and clear and there were no gaps or skips in coverage. We were very happy with the ease of searching for stations and the sound quality produced.

While the thousands of stations amazed us, we were blown away by the program's special features. Most stations provided information on the artists and songs, which was helpful. In addition, users can bookmark their favorite stations and even hit a simple record button to digitally tape their favorite stations. With an incredible selection, excellent sound quality, and impressive special features, we highly recommend users download this free program as an alternative to the radio.

    "Wonderful App but beware! Decline all extras at install"

    April 26, 2014   |   By BenGordon11

    Version: RadioSure 2.2.1036

    Pros

    Starts almost instantly; runs without a hitch. Comes with thousands of radio stations pre-set up. Most of the ones I chose worked perfectly. A few have old links that no one contacted the vendor to update. (they let you submit additions and correction, in a non-intuitive way requiring that you create a login). The best feature is that it will record a radio broadcast.

    Cons

    At install you see a messge that looks like a terms of use message with a Decline or Accept at the bottom. But the text tells you it is going to change your home page on any common browser you are using. It repeats this 3 times for different bloatware options. Just Decline each one. Eventually you will get the RadioSure Download.

    Summary

    This is a remarkable piece of software being distributed as freeware. I would pay a small amount to get a premium version that let me set a start and end time for a recording.

    January 26, 2013   |   By sbose64

    Version: RadioSure 2.2.1036

    Pros

    extremely small footprint less than size of even a tiny digital trash yet so powerpacked with tunability to nearly 25000 net radio urls with streaming mp3/aac/oggvorbis/wma sounds!favourites button to store your loved stations,useful window popups of stations and tracks.good quality of sound that includes 32 bit stereo.

    Cons

    relatively small size of stored favourites,it allows only nearly 40 stations or so.issue of auto updating radio urls.doesnt get updated regularly.some stations never connect.

    Summary

    in summary,the world in a matchbox.access to ever expanding net radio streams in every genre,from every country in an unbelievable small package that only needs a web connection of respectable bandwidth.an wonder that truly expresses the beauty of the web.an indispensable freeware.

    "Great, and plays mp3s"

    May 24, 2012   |   By jackcheddar

    Version: RadioSure 2.2.1036

    Pros

    can auto start with computer

    skinable

    portable

    drag/drop mp3s from your computer on it and play them!!!

    Cons

    playlist for mp3 playback

    Summary

    mp3s that record with the beginnings and endings chopped off are the fault of the station broadcasting them, NOT RadioSure!

    Sometimes I wish it had more details about the stations, etc., but I probably wouldn't have found as much cool stuff as I have if I could add certain search criteria.

    I use this more than MediaMonkey and my library of 100k songs, I love it!
