TapinRadio

CNET Editors' review

There's just one thing wrong with Internet radio: there's too much of it, and what's wrong with that, really? Free music in every style, genre, era, fashion, and flavor, crystal-clear and streamed free of charge directly to you. All you have to do is choose what to listen to. So the only real "problem" with Internet radio is sorting out an overwhelming number of choices, not only which stations to try but also which format. You need a dedicated Internet radio app; something like TapinRadio.

It supports major formats such as MP3, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, and WMA. It enables smooth station transitions, recording, and searching. It even has a sleep shutdown feature, mono output, alarm scheduler, and other features you might find on a tabletop radio rather than a desktop media player.

TapinRadio's installer offers Normal and Portable installation options. We chose the normal setup, but we like the idea of a fully portable option since TapinRadio is a natural for travelers. The program has a simple, efficient interface; nothing flashy, though the Dark Mode presents a gray-toned alternative to the default theme. TapinRadio is split horizontally between the station display and play controls above and the search tool and stations list below. It's very easy to use: type in a search (such as for a performer, band, or style) and TapinRadio quickly displays an impressive list of stations.

We typed in "ska" and got hits for everything from '80s two-tone to Polish national radio, though it's possible to narrow the selections by choosing from the Region, Genre, and Network submenus on the Stations menu. To play a station, simply click it in the list, and its information appears in the player section, such as name, bit rate, genre, and nation, depending on what's available. The player has Play, Record, and Options buttons and a volume slider. The options include an equalizer, station sharing, and an advanced clipboard tool that lets you select and play items directly from the clipboard.

Of course, the biggest thing about Net radio is that it's huge fun. You can hear everything and anything from all corners of the globe: music, news, weather, talk, and more. We found TapinRadio made it easy.
