Editors' review

Radium for Mac offers a convenient solution for streaming Internet radio as it lets you find stations easily from a single interface. The program's basic and easy-to-use menu makes finding streaming content a breeze, all in a well-designed package.

Radium for Mac comes with a 30-day trial. After seamlessly starting up, the program places an icon directly in the top row of the main Mac screen. The heart-shaped icon is easy to identify and clicking it brings up a single search field. The user can then enter terms for the type of station you're looking for. This brings up a list of options, which are labeled clearly and describe the respective content well. Clicking the station icon immediately begins the streaming audio, which comes through clearly as it would from a station's own Web page. Users can also designate favorites, which will immediately load when starting the application later on. There are options to share your favorite track via Twitter and Last.fm as well as to visit the station's Web site. While the program works well, the playback options were few, but the option for stopping and playing audio was easy to locate as it's just next to the search field. The users can also activate as well as change shortcuts for the most basic options such as Open/Close Radium, Play/Pause, and volume controls, etc.

Radium for Mac works well and would be a useful option for users looking for an application to consolidate Internet streaming radio.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Radium for Mac 3.0.2.

    "Doesn't work very well."

    August 30, 2013   |   By stevencee

    Version: Radium 3.0.4

    Pros

    Nice idea, and when it worked ok, that was good.

    Cons

    Some stations wouldn't play, others would suddenly stop working.

    Summary

    I had high hopes, but a confusing layout didn't help. Having some stations just stop playing at various times, isn't good. And watching it trying to connect over & over and not being successful, was also not good. The new program is not compatible with Snow Leopard, and since they are doing no more updates, I'm just SOL, until I get a new OS, &/or find a better working streaming player.

    "It is not backward compatible"

    April 17, 2013   |   By David Woolery

    Version: Radium 3.0.1

    Pros

    None that I can think of, since it is not backward compatible.

    Cons

    Unfortunately I already had deleted my old copy, and it did work on OS X 10.6+.

    "Great program, new version doesn't work on my Mac Pro"

    January 07, 2011   |   By REShaman

    Version: Radium 2.7.4

    Pros

    Great program and Air Play is a plus!

    Cons

    Version 2.7.4 won't work for me?

    Summary

    2.7.4 refuses to install on my Mac Pro running 10.6.6. I am using 2.7.3 without problems. Emails to tech support are responded to with no other instances of my problem. I am the only one? I've tried several times either using the program's update or directly downloading from Catpig Studio's website. 2.7.4 won't install and crashes my OSX. Love the program. But this version and tech support aren't able to get me up and running. Extremely disappointed as a long time user.
    Best,
    Richard

    Updated on Jan 9, 2011

    Tech support has now offered a "new build" for version 2.7.4 that no longer freezes my Mac Pro. I remain completely satisfied and grateful for the program and the excellent support as neither I or Catpig Studios gave up until the problem was solved and distributed so that all of us benefit. Doesn't get any better.
    Best,
    Richard

    "Most excellent"

    February 05, 2010   |   By tim.lance

    Version: Radium 2.4.6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Oh to be able to give more than 5 stars. Easily the best app of its kind. Easily the best support and response times of just about any app. Easily worth the $$. I bought it within a few minutes of trying even though my favorite stations weren't added yet and my most favorite was likely to present them with some challenge. It took them some trickery but they did not flinch and did get it.

    "Great Software"

    December 08, 2009   |   By csnhou

    Version: Radium 2.4.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This software is near perfect. Works great and hides nicely in menubar. Works great with XM Online and has great choice of stations. I like the notification feature of new stations available to enable. Works well with Growl and I like the option to create shortcut to display current song playing. The price is perfect too... Can't wait for all updates to come for new features..
