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.
