RadioSure

CNET 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.

    "Love both the old and new versions!"

    January 11, 2011  |   By scribadiva

    Version: RadioSure 2.1.969

    Pros

    thousands of channels, option to record. If recording, the songs are broken up. New version offers album art, and like the old version, the group's name and name of song appear. Great selection, every kind of music/ talk radio.

    Cons

    When songs are broken up, and you are listening to a commercial station (most are not commercial) you will have your song, then DJ comments, and commercials. Not so bad as to use something else; I've loved it for 3 years now.

    Summary

    For $5 in January, you can get the Pro version, which to me is worth it. Thousands of channels, suitable for every taste, including talk, from all over the world. Alternative is my favorite, and Europe has so many stations! Talk radio includes guided imagery, etc. for relaxation: Every point of view on talk. When you are recording, RadioSure breaks up songs, providing name of group, song, the album, year and cover art. In short, full of metadata. The only thing I don't care for is, if you are listening and recording from a commercial station, you may get a commercial or DJ comments. This presents no rationale for dumping the program. I've loved and used this program for the past two years.

    "Won't play my favorite stations...."

    January 7, 2011  |   By walterlindsey

    Version: RadioSure 2.1.969

    Pros

    Installation is quick and painless.

    Cons

    My Soundbridge Radio died, so I was looking for a good internet radio app with presets a radio-like interface, and a recorder. This app won't play any of my local Virginia radio stations, AM or FM, so it's useless.

    Summary

    It think I'll pony up for a new Philips or Slingbox internet radio when tax refund time rolls around.

    "Absolutely superb!"

    December 30, 2010  |  

    Version: RadioSure 2.1.969

    Pros

    EASY; WORKS

    Cons

    Not a one! (Why MUST I enter 10 characters?)

    Summary

    (Using this on Vista Home Premium.) So easy to see what's available, you can sort available streams any way you need to. When you close it and come back, it remembers your last search and goes automatically to the station you were listening to last. One click recording. I've been waiting for this ever since I lost my XP Audio Recorder for Free, which doesn't hold a candle to RadioSure. Worth paying for!

    "Massive selection of free, recordable broadcasting."

    December 7, 2010  |   By MoodyCat08

    Version: RadioSure 2.1.969

    Pros

    If you like music, you'll love RadioSure. You can select what you want by narrowing the 13,000+ stations by country, genre, and language. One button record from song start is great and favourites are easy to create. Sound and bitrate are DAB+.

    Cons

    Don't show unavailable stations.
    Editing favourites is fiddly.
    May need better search, and/or StumbleUpon-ish.
    Ugly default skin.
    Volume normalisation button on skin would be handy?
    Would benefit greatly from a programmable "play recorded" feature.

    Summary

    I think Radio?Sure! is excellent and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anybody. It becomes more satisfying as the favourites list grows to a moderate size. After that, choosing a current-mood suiting station can become increasingly unmanageable.

    The list itself is as bland as the original skin, it lacks appeal. Each favourite should be listed: title, country, genre, language. The list could then be toggled on-screen with the main display.

    The accessability of features is an extension of this point, as many are not visible on-screen or easy to get at. A custom skin that enables buttons to be added and assigned functions, moved, or removed, would be nice. Perhaps there already is such a thing?

    The expand/collapse button seems a bit wrong to me! Collapse, I suggest, should lose the fun, dynamic graphical display in favour of showing at least the currently selected station. A user should then be able to replace it by scrolling favourites or all-stations to tune a different channel.

    Why not add variable treble, middle, and base controls to the expanded display? Each could, of course, go from minus ten to plus ten. However, since this is the fabulous Radio?Sure!, they should really give an extra ten per cent and range from minus eleven to plus eleven.

    Sound can be amazing, very clear and rich compared to DAB and FM. Unfortunately, there have been a few dropped connections. These have not automatically reconnected (Can Radio?Sure! do that?).

    Overall, Radio?Sure! is excellent, but not perfect. I love it all the same, and look forward to its next incarnation.
