    "Useless support - buggy program"

    September 11, 2012   |   By wildcatherder2

    Version: RadioTime RedButton 2.903

    Pros

    Records shows on schedule

    Cons

    It eventually stops allowing access to recording schedule. Support is limited to "reinstall, we are no longer developing this product".

    Summary

    A formerly useful product ruined by lack of support.

    "Worked GREAT for two years...Then stopped recording"

    April 06, 2012   |   By beerbelly918

    Version: RadioTime RedButton 2.903

    Pros

    still a pretty good radio tuner but that's it...

    Cons

    Stopped recording after a few years of flawless use
    Never informed me they where getting rid of the recording option

    Summary

    It worked GREAT for the few years I had it.It would automatically find stations and shows and would record as scheduled with no problem.Then late last year it stopped recognizing the scheduled programs and in January of this year it stopped recording all together.It seems Radiotime has stopped updating this program and now focus just on radio tuning for smart phones.THIS SUCKS they could have let me know this was gonna happen and give me my $50 bucks back...too bad because I am trying another radio recorder and it is horrible.I really enjoyed this product when it worked.

    "I have used this for recording for a few years now."

    October 23, 2011

    Version: RadioTime RedButton 2.903

    Pros

    Easy to record and transfer to an ipod.

    Cons

    Doesn't seem to work so well since the BBC changed to their iplayer for regional programmes. Realplayer streams worked better.

    Summary

    I now find audials better but can't mute it, you can with radiotime redbutton while recording.

    "I wish it worked for me"

    June 19, 2010   |   By DinoSpyder

    Version: RadioTime RedButton 2.903

    Pros

    Finds shows and schedules. Plays in a window. Supposed to record on schedule. Would be nice if it did.

    Cons

    Misses recordings. Undependable. Never a response from Tech Support. Frustrating. Unfortunately have to give up during trial period. Try it for free...If it works for you, buy it. I would have if I could get it to work.

    Summary

    Product / company probably not ready for prime-time. The idea is good and I really wanted it to work. Bugs and lack of support make it impossible for me to use.

    "Great Tivo-Like program for Radio AM/FM and Streaming."

    March 16, 2010   |   By unclepoo2

    Version: RadioTime RedButton 2.903

    Pros

    I love this program it allows me to listen to programs that are not available in my area, and I can choose favorite programs or stations. I can record the streams to listen to later. you can also update the guide and it will be updated in 24 hours.

    Cons

    I wish it had the ability to Lock onto a certain station during the recording of a program, if the show is a national one, than it defaults to a list of links playing the show at that time, the only way around this would be to do manual recording.

    Summary

    Great Tivo-like Radio Program
    Records Online streaming stations
    programmable
    (Great for Programs, not designed for individual songs)
    Works with Radioshark and other AM / FM Tuners
    Record shows now in mp3 format. listen to later.
    Totally worth it.
    Download it try it free, you will buy it.

    Update 1 star out of 5 Radiotime Redbutton software is discontinued, no word what the future holds. the software now goes to tunein.com I already had purchase this and it did use to work well. Often I can go to a radio station site and listen to the stream while the redbutton software rarely works. , now much of what I try to record fails. with the exception of recording off of my RadioShark AM/FM USB receiver.
    If anyone knows of a similar software to RadioTime Redbutton please let me know, I am looking

    "Great tool - radio from any where to here"

    May 30, 2008   |   By randysvh

    Version: RadioTime RedButton 2.903

    Pros

    This is exactly what i was looking for. It is so complete and it delivers information about the station as well as programming. I was looking to be able to search for specific programs and find them available all over the country or countries. It is great if you want to also see all of the stations for a given community and the type of Genre or what they play. This is a very versatile tool. Although HD radio is not included yet, it is not a terrible negative.

    Cons

    The biggest disadvantage to me is the number of URL's that are suppose to be playable, and the URL for whatever reason does not play. If you go to the specific radio station site and press listen live it does work. This is the only fix i can see.

    Version: RadioTime RedButton 2.903

    Pros

    no need to search each and every radio station or program in a mess called internet .

    My favorite stations are Latvijas Radio3 Klassika , Radio Jazz, Si Radio and KEXP

    No other service or app brings these station combination to my attention.

    "Cool guide, for programs not songs."

    December 09, 2007   |   By radiotime

    Version: RadioTime RedButton 2.903

    Pros

    It uses the RadioTime program guide which has thousands of programs nicely organized and features like local radio, keyword search, and suggestions. Setup and use is simple, you just click record, record all and finished recordings show up in iTunes/iPod. But I actually use it more for listening to live radio in the office and pausing when the phone rings.

    Cons

    It doens't record individual songs like Snaptune. The guide isn't as reliable as TiVo, but "Brad" at the company answers complaints and they are fixed fast.

    Cons

    I found very few links not working
