Although we have a couple of small complaints, this Net radio application fortunately has enough positives to balance out its problems. Even though Yadio is free, you'll have to surrender your personal information to create an account and use the program. Though this isn't a dealbreaker, we wish you could register from directly within the application, rather than having to open your browser and type in a URL.
Yadio's modern, slick interface is a mostly positive affair. The great-looking skins add a nice amount of personality, although the main window displays advertisements. The utility lets you listen to radio stations from an impressive number of genres, including jazz, hip-hop, and adult contemporary. We had no problems with Yadio's sound quality and performance, and we're glad the app lets you save your favorite stations as presets. Even though you can find Net radio programs with a larger number of available stations and features such as recording, this free and attractive program still is definitely worth checking out.
Yadio is the ultimate Internet radio player and search engine. It has a searchable database of hundreds of stations (available inside the player and on the Web site), superior quality online music with more than 200 streaming channels, a fully customizable interface with 14 standard skins, and a custom skin maker to create your own look. Yadio's small size and easy interface makes it ideal for music lovers of all skill levels, from kids to grandparents.
Version 1.1 has several internal improvements, and also includes the ability to minimize to the system tray, and independent mute and volume control.
