Editors' Review

+

Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder streamlines the process of downloading music from various online sources for later listening. Its intuitive interface guides you through the process, so you'll have some great playlists of your favorite music in no time.

Pros

Intuitive process: All you have to do to start recording your favorite music through the program is to hit the "Record" button. Once you've done that, the program can automatically begin recording once you're on an online radio site. You can also create playlists of music videos on sites like YouTube, and then just record them as they play.

Automatic tagging: Every song you record will be tagged automatically with information including the song name, artist, and album title. This makes all of your music easy to keep track of and requires no extra work on your part.

Cons

Trial limitations: This app offers a free seven-day trial, but even that comes with some limitations. In fact, the program will only identify the first ten songs you record, so if you don't purchase the full version after that point, you'll be left with a bunch of nameless tracks.

Bottom Line

Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder is a quality program with a good set of features. It runs smoothly, and its accessible interface makes the app manageable for users of all experience levels. A full license costs $29.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder 2.1.

"Would be great, if it worked"

November 17, 2014  |  By ollylambert

 |  Version: Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder 2.1

Pros

Does occasionally succeed in recording streamed music, but....

Cons

Infuriatingly riddled with bugs.
The track identifier rarely works, with random artwork being generated, inconsistency of album names, and regular mix ups when the artist is given as the composer and vice versa. Regular hanging on PC. Track identifier works, then doesn't, requiring a completely reinstall. Annoyingly the developers seem to know about this and yet...

Summary

Bloody annoying and not worth buying until they've sorted it out.

"WARNING: Full of spyware and viruses!"

January 07, 2014  |  By CoPatriot

 |  Version: Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder 2.1

Pros

It works for 10 songs for free. After that, you have to register and pay.

Cons

It downloaded all kinds of malware to my computer. When I went to Amazon, I kept getting all kinds of pop-ups. I had to run 2 virus scanners to remove all of it! WARNING!!

"WARNING DO NOT DOWNLOAD!"

October 14, 2013  |  By beastiebaz

 |  Version: Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder 2.1

Pros

There are no Pros for this program, download at your peril

Cons

I tried the 7 day free trial first
1st problem is on the 7 day free trial you can only identify 10 tracks you have downloaded, so what is the point in a 7 day trial?
It downloaded 10 tracks from a streaming site, but incorrectly identified 3 of them [wrong song and/or wrong artist]Tracks worked OK on identifying on Shazam on iPhone so they were not obscure tracks. Customer service in China? could not help, so I uninstalled. Worse as soon as I uninstalled my wifi internet stack was altered and todate I am still unable to get it running again on the laptop I used.

I contacted customer service in China? and they said reinstall

Summary

I cannot believe the good reviews for this product.....it just does not work properly, giving incorrect info in 30% of downloads
and probably screwing my computers register.

"Gets the job done, but ..."

August 31, 2013  |  By h_alamo

 |  Version: Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder 2.1

Pros

Does what is it supposed to do. The trial period was fine, I decided to purchase and works as advertised. Very intuitive. The auto-tag works great (not perfect). BUT...

Cons

.. Like DSunhammer said, I'm glad they didn't get my bank account. The software totally takes over your system and OS. I was able to reject all crapware offers during the install process but still it has a brain of its own. It becomes your default software to open video and audio files. Changing it on the windows preferences only affects that session until the next Windows reboot. Takes longer than itunes or WMP to load so it would definitely NOT be my preferred player.
It affects your audio drivers, volume, delays audio and more while open.

Summary

If you know what you are doing, it is recommended. Otherwise, watch out.
