Apparently this seems abandon ware. Dev's focus is on Intstacast OS X and iOS. Bummer.

Interface pretty but the purpose of various steps not obvious. Says it has access to 'thousands' of radio stations but cannot find the main BBC 320K stream (Shows about 40 BBC stations, none of which is the right one and no way to get any useful guidancefrom the app). Importing the 320K BBC url displays in the app as Win media 56K. All other streaming apps I have tried have no problem with the same url. Multiple support requests using form on developers site have gone unanswered. You'd have a better chance of getting a personal response from the President. Worth having, but support gets zero stars.

It would have been clearer to say 'workflow' than 'purpose of various steps'.

Can't import new stations in the demo, or maybe it is just a limitation. I really hope that last one is not the case - it is a really confusing limitation to put on this software. I need to know if it can successfully import stations. I was trying to record Somafm, and it never shows up in the list.

Tested the demo but couldn't find my time shifted recording, not even the first 15 minutes. I don't know if this feature is disabled in the demo version.
I tried to contact the support via contact sheet and e-mail and didn't get any response ever since except a confirmation e-mail. I'm waiting over a week now. I would like to buy it but only if I can test the time shift recording.

In my opinion the support for this great product is almost non existent. To bad.

Version 2.1 works almost flawless for me.
One issue remains - on MacBook pro 15" it triggers discrete graphics which is a battery hog and seems stupid for a radio app. Probably snowtape just calls for some libraries like core animation it does not really need. Emailed support about this end of 2012, but they do not seem to care about this issue.

They don't seem to care about ANY issue. You're on your own with this one.

Unlike others here who, it appears, have had poor results with Snowtape, I've had nothing but positive results with the latest version and would recommend the software. I literally use it daily and for long periods and have not had one issue with it. Functionality is great, I really like the system wide hotkey options that let me play/stop or record/stop without having to be in the App. Recommended.

Crashes constantly while recording, Not ready for Mountain Lion. Avoid this product. For the price I was expecting a sophisticated, stable and well planned product. Many stations you would expect to be in the database - similar to Reciva Radio or Tunein Radio are missing. This was a costly mistake on my part.

Unfortunately Snowtape 2.1 is always crashing after a couple of minutes on my Intel iMac with OS X 10.8.2.

This seems to be the case for many users. Is there any response from the developer for this?

I had crashing issues with 2.0.12 and 2.0.13, but never since (and never before these versions which seemed to be problematic). 2.1 works perfect for me. When I had the issues with 2.0.12 / .13 I contacted the developer and received a private beta which fixed the crashes within days. Did you reported your problems?
