Editors' Review

Nexus Radio is a free music software application that lets users download music and discover streaming radio stations from around the world. It also doubles as a media player, and recording tool that can record in-line audio from your computer, or from the radio streams to which you're listening. In addition, the app plays fetch--create a filter and it will capture songs or artists according to your keyword choice. That spells "free music discovery" to us

.

Like competing music jukebox software, Nexus Radio has its own plug-in architecture that allows third parties to create their own add-ons. One of the most popular applications of that has been visualizations, which users are able to add or remove from the player. The app also offers drag-and-drop functionality for creating your own playlists from music stored on your hard drive, and there are built-in tools for saving clips as MP3s and editing clips.

Nexus Radio has an attractive interface that offers plenty of functionality without being overly complex. The main screen has built-in volume control, menu options, and a dropdown for on-the-fly burning. Stations are listed alphabetically, but other than the name, there's really no additional information, so you'll have to hunt and peck to find the stations you like. It's best to add stations as favorites for easier access with further use. The app isn't the most polished we've seen, but it offers a simple way to save songs and create playlists of tracks heard on Internet radio.
