Editors' Review

+

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.

"Adware, Spyware, Trojan vehicle"

May 04, 2006  |  By beta user

 |  Version: Yadio 1.1

Pros

Nothing to like about it, messed up my computer

Cons

The download at CNET and other areas is spyware that messed up my hard drive. I had to throw the laptop I installed it on away. Does not uninstall and continually is trying to hook up to the Internet to transfer data. The tech who looked at my laptop said that Yadio leaves a "stub" in your computer that makes it impossible to remove and allows other software to be downloaded without the user even knowing.

"Didn't get so far as to use it..."

June 28, 2005  |  By HJoddball

 |  Version: Yadio 1.1

Pros

Didn't get far enough to see the final product.

Cons

I downloaded it, installed it, deleted the trojan it came with and uninstalled it. AVG detected the virus. Whether or not it is a virus I don't care. I just know there's better software titles out there that don't come packaged with viruses. Hope this is useful.
