Editors' Review

+

You won't find absolute perfection in this free desktop app for streaming Internet Radio, but you will find a mess of language options, preset stations, and a few extra functions stuffed into a very light, fast app. For casual listeners, the combination will be just right. Not every preset station will be a success--we found that many URLs lead to a Web site, not to a stream. If that's the case, you can follow the link from Screamer Radio, do a little searching around the site, and manually enter the URL. Unfortunately, there's no way to edit the global library for everyone's benefit.

As for the perks, you're looking at two sound effects, saving favorite stations (but not songs,) and audio recording--you'll be able to easily open the Recordings folder from the app interface. With Screamer Radio, you'll also be able to mute audio and do some manual configuring. It's a great deal for those looking for ease of use and an easy way to experiment with new stations and sounds in a set-it-and-forget-it format. If you're looking for more advanced features like visualizers, saving individual songs, and socializing, however, this isn't the radio app for you.

"A good, reasonable program that doesn't work."

July 30, 2010  |  By doinaheckuvajob

 |  Version: Screamer Radio 0.4.3

Pros

The size, layout, presentation and functions are very good. Not too big and clumsy nor too small and pointless. You can easily load any radio station you want in the URL spot. Overall, if the thing worked, it would be a nice program.

Cons

Stations don't load no matter what. Easy instructions but the program won't do what it says it will, it just sits there.

Summary

Doesn't work-- the stations wouldn't load, I tried several of the ones on their list as well as ones I input. The instructions on how to run this thing on their website are clear and easy but when you try it they don't work. The program just sits there and doesn't do much, on my Windows XP system. This could be a good program if it worked properly. But it doesn't.

Pros

fast, plays and records well. allows you to easily make a list of favorite stations.
freeware, so I made a donation

they are probably outdated.
it should be easy to update the list

"Can do everything I need"

January 02, 2010  |  By Phygar

 |  Version: Screamer Radio 0.4.3

Pros

Can record at any bitrate
You can listen to the music and record on demand
Can open a custom URL
Has lots of presets

Cons

No equalizer

Summary

This nifty program is minimalistic, but is very good at what it does. You can choose a stream to open from a URl or you can use some of the preset stations. It acts as a normal player and can play the music very well. If you want to record something as you are playing, simply hit record when you want to start and stop.

"Simple, quick internet radio"

December 14, 2009  |  By InsertCleverUserNameHere

 |  Version: Screamer Radio 0.4.3

Pros

Works great, comes with a huge library of URLS, you can (manually) add your own. Small footprint, very easy to use. Takes up only 16K of your memory.

Cons

Adding your own URL's is awkward; no skins; needs an option to avoid opening multiple copies of the program.

Summary

This is one of the best little programs I've ever used -- click, you've got music; click, you can try out any of hundreds of stations, sorted by genre, language, and country. Totally cool! It needs an easier way to add your own stations, but that's small potatoes. I love my music collection, but radio still rocks.

"free, portable, simple to use and update"

November 12, 2009  |  By cnetuserinny

 |  Version: Screamer Radio 0.4.3

Pros

Portable, portable, portable. Favorites are easy to update manually and reload as they are stored in an XML file. Very easy to record radio stations.

Cons

None. Yes, it often fails to connect but thats not the fault of the software. Streaming URLs come and go.

Summary

Highly recommended.
