Thank you for the trial subscription, but all the radio stations I've tried so far can be found at shoutcast.com. Am I missing something or why wouldn't I just go to Shoutcast and download the links there?

Several iRADIOmast advantages over browser based directories follow:

a. I can use my Sony Ericsson w800i cell phone "remote control software" to control my iTunes radio stations. My personal favorite is "salling clicker". I can change stations, volume, etc.

b. We have MANY stations not found in other directory services such as the U.S. Emergency Weather Stations.

c. We constantly add new, progressive stations that broadcast using non-shoutcast server software. Therefore, these stations are not included in the shoutcast directory.

d. Listening to internet radio through a web browser is akin to eating noodles with wool mittens. Sure you get the noodles in your mouth, but you wish you had done it a different way.

e. We are a small group of people who research and include obscure genre such as Electronic:Jungle (for the uninitiated, this is Techno Reggae that sometimes carries the name Ragga-Jungle). This is not suit corporate America. We do this because we love it.

f. In the Virtual World iRADIOmast is compatible with "slitunes", a Second Life plugin that brings iTunes music to your "Land" so your virtual guests can share your iTunes Radio stations. Try that with a browser.

While the radio subscription model is something that makes sense to me, I find it dangerous to base it around an iTunes Plugin. While the integration is great, Apple could release an update that suddenly breaks these 3rd party plugins at any time.

I would find it much more comforting to have a stand-alone app to access the service with possible iTunes integration. The additional upshot would be less initial system overhead as iTunes is quite a beast of a program just for listening to music.

I found no information on the website about how the profits from the monthly subscription are shared with the radio stations. Are they shared equally among all the stations? Or only to the stations I listen to? Is it based on how often I listen to said stations?

Currently I'm quite happy donating money to Radio Paradise and I haven't found a better eclectic radio station. But I'll keep my eye on iRADIOmast.

This is so easy to use.
I love iRADIOMAST! NO MORE COMERCIALS.
My friends think I have the best music. This is totally worth the $4.95 a month it costs.

It was easy to install, the controls are in my iTUNES.
Even my Mom installed it and started using it with out help.

If that is what you got out of my reply then you missed the point entirely or I filed to communicate it succinctly enough. My goal was not to make a 'mountain of to a molehill' but to provide readers with an alternate perspective and information to enable them to make an informed decision in regards to your service.

Since I have decided that your service does not address my needs at a price I am willing to pay, it would be foolish for me to try it for free for a month if I am not wish to pay $60 a year or more for any streaming audio subscription. However I am pleased that you clarified it that your offer was a demo, much like you offer everyone else, rather than to single me out for special treatment as the previous message implied. That does indicate some level of integrity, a characteristic that I insist upon before considering doing or continuing to do business with anyone.

Please do not provide me with any further offers to entice me as I am not interested in purchasing a subscription to your service. For $60 I can buy over 60 selections from ITunes or similar services. That is around 8 days of unique music selections if played 8 hours per day, that I select, that I own, that I want to listen to, and that I never will have to buy again.

Moreover, if I purchase the music as CD's there are services that will allow me to exchange them for a nominal fee, for other CD's should I tire of them, thus recovering a substantial portion of my investment.

So to summarize my comments, I wish to share with other potential users of your product the fact that I am not interested in your service, don't want it or believe in it, but do believe their are other reasonable alternatives abet with some limitations, don't want special treatment, and have concerns about your software being present on my computer relative to the security of my personal data and listening habits.

I sincerely hope that this response is now succinct enough.

I have respectfully declined this vendors kind offer for a free subscription, I feel it would not be fair or ethical for me to accept it as I have done nothing other than to express my thought about his product, along with other streaming entertainment. I see no reason that I should be treated differently than other subscribers.

I have also written him back personally a long reply expressing my thoughts on the service, security and streaming Internet in general.

While I have not used this particular service I have explored and am using Internet Radio. Mac users have several alternatives fro radio ranging from free to paid subscription. When pricing out such services I suggest you price it out on a yearly basis to reflect what you really will be paying for the service on an annual basis as it puts it in a better perspective. For example, this service costs $60 a year and requires special software to be installed. Other options that do not require additional software being installed are:

Live365: - Free with real loud and annoying commercials and limited stations or $48-$72 a year depending on how much of a period you subscribe for (monthly to 2 years). I sometimes use this service for free and hit my 'mute' button on my keyboard to block the annoying commercials for their service.

Shoutcast : - Free or donation but with limited station selections that come and go. This is my primary Internet radio service that I use because I have better things to waste money on than Internet radio.

Products that do not seem to be ITunes friendly::

Real Player Requires special software installation, price unknown. Popular service but software infiltrates my system and I have privacy concerns about it. Does not work with ITunes

Yahoo - Subscription based and requires special software. Unknown price.

Additionally there are several music and Internet radio services, such as Comcast that are Mac hostile. A search on the Internet with the search term 'Internet Radio' or 'Streaming Radio' will reveal another of other lesser known choices, both free and fee based and mostly sourced from foreign countries.

Hope this helps.

JimW.

I really enjoyed reading your review and can tell you really enjoy Internet Radio. Contact me if you want a free Subscription to iRADIOmast. I am at iradiomast@gmail.com.

I would like to share couple neat things with you.

First iRADIOmast is compatible with most existing iTunes plug-ins. What does this mean? It means you can have access to 7,000+ radio stations with high powered iTunes applications like RadioLover (...look that program up - smile).

Also, we now have a very complete listing of the U.S. NOAA Emergency Weather Radio Stations. I listen to the Milwaukee station in the morning when it is below zero during a super cold winter morning.

Last but not least, we love the product and are always looking for ways to add quality streams to the offering.

Take care and I look forward to hearing from you!

What happens to the standard iTunes Radio?

When the iRADIOmast plug-in is installed, and the subscription is paid for, our expanded Radio Directory is provided IN ADDITION to the regular iTunes station listing.

If the iRADIOmast subscription is NOT paid for, simply un-install the iRADIOmast plug-in to regain access to the regular iTunes stations.

This is the ONLY product that consolidates internet radio streams inside of iTunes. Now I have a better radio selection for my iTunes alarm clock! Also, it is easy to use because now I get my radio using the iTunes interface.

Hugobeng had trouble on 01 Oct 2009
It's fairly urgent that some kind of removal instructions be provided. It seems that iRadioMast's lack of continuing internet connection has disabled the entire radio function of my application. There is no obvious plug-in or other addition to the usual iTune's set-up and yet, the streams list remains altered and iTunes reports it is unable to contact the streaming server. Some kind of help would be appreciated!

Can anyone tell me how to uninstall this? The developer's page is pretty much offline and I can't download the dmg to use the uninstaller. I want this thing off my machine so iTunes isn't burdened by it anymore. Thanks in advance.
