"Works well, functional"

August 14, 2012  |  By mortte0

 |  Version: Snowtape 2.1

Pros

After initial problems with earlier versions Snowtape has become a most reliable streaming radio application. Instant playback and recording using system wide hotkeys work well.

Slightly dated interface.

Well worth considering if you're looking for this type of software.

What's new in version 2.1
The first thing I did is stop compiling for 32bit architectures like the first Intel-Macs, because Mountain Lion is only running on 64bit architectures anyway, which means less to download. Then I replaced the old-style code signing with Developer ID, which works in conjunction with the new Gatekeeper security mechanism. I also removed support for Growl Notifications to replace it with support for the new Notification Center in 10.8. Growl has been the source of problems in the past and I am taking this opportunity to remove the dependency on a what seems to be an unreliable 3rd party product. Another thing I had to remove is built-in support for AirPlay. Snowtape's implementation was build on reverse-engineered algorithms and deprecated cipher algorithms, which made the feature flaky and best and sometimes quite unreliable. I was also incompatible with a lot of 3rd party devices. The good news is that Mountain Lion comes with system wide built-in support for AirPlay. All you have to do is switch the audio output device in Sound preferences to the AirPlay enabled audio device of your choosing. I also went over the code and replaced deprecated functions with new and modern implementations and were also able to improve reliability and performance a bit.
