I love the Radioshift application, and use it daily. However, since I've upgraded to Yosemite, I've noticed that the recorded audio plays through the speakers regardless of the status of the Listen/Mute button. My preference would be that the audio be muted by default, and that it might be toggled if the user wished to hear the audio real time. Perhaps I'm missing something? I know that this program is not actively supported, but if it's an easy fix, I (and I'm sure others) would very much appreciate it.

It' great to have Radioshift back .Picky folks have taken it apart and say it is not Maclike. I say it is and it offers more stations for JAZZ then any other. So I am content because I love JAZZ.The music is what its about isn't it? Rogue Amoega knows what they are doing. Instead of trying to bury this app why don't they enjoy the music. Becuause that's what its about. Not listening to critical diagnosis of technical points and criticism. 5 Stars for an excellent application. Let the critics salve their criticism with music because that is the Raison Etre of this application.

RadioShift has been a rock-solid performer for me, all these years. It enabled me to record my favorite radio programs with ease, and input them into iTunes for later use. It's a very great shame the application is on it's last legs. Very great indeed ...

Just trying to offset the rating appearing in my previous review, where I intended to rate Radioshift very low and NOT 3 stars! Let's see if it works this time... Radioshift User Interface is just so bad, not worthy to be called a Mac App, it's clicking hell! (read another comment to explain the details, I am not going to go through that). I recently found another Radio app, SNOWTAPE, which is a pleasure to use in comparison to Radioshift, and full of functionality as well!

Great value, simple interface, picked up all my fav stations in seconds, just what I wanted. Even better is there online audio recording software Audio Hi-Jacker and music streaming program called Airfoil. Great software developers - search for Rogue Amoeba to view all their software.

I really wanted to like this application... Somewhere, it contains a lot of functionality, but the awful User Interface makes it extremely hard to access. The UI is a mess, absolutely awful! This app is in love with paging and clicking… lots of it! What's wrong with an iTunes-like User Interface? Apple, and others, have thought through many usability issues, so why that desire to imitate the mess of a badly designed web site instead? For instance, RadioShift has a great ability to find radios, but the results are useless because of the UI: Let's say I search for "Jazz"… I get 629 results. This sounds great, right? But wait! The results are shown in pages of 10! So I need to painfully browse 63 pages!!!! Click, Click, Click, Click…. . This is INSANE! What wrong with scrollable lists, spreadsheets with rows and columns that I could scroll quickly with the mouse wheel/trackpad/magic mouse??? …with meaningful columns that I could sort by, with a filter to tune-in within the search results, etc, etc…? And to view the details of one particular station, I have to click on it, and I get to another page to read it, and then page back to the list (and the animations are making it even slower) and then carry-on clicking and clicking and clicking and clicking… What's wrong with an Info panel that details whatever is selected in the list. No! This application can't show the list together with the details of the selected station. Now… you can elect favorites… Great! you may think… But wait! You cannot simply right-click on a station and add it to Favorites, you have to page to the details, select Favorites, and go back to the list in search of another station. And there is only ONE list of favorites! What's wrong with multiple collections like iTunes' playlists? And the favorites are also painfully shown as pages again. My initial stations searching lead with 74 favorites (the search was so painful that I put many in favorites for checking later, to avoid repeating the search). Well… that meant that I had to pages through 8 pages of favorites! And I cannot reorganize them. Let's say I want to compare a station in page 1 and page 6 to see which I prefer? Click, Click, Click, Click… Again, please look at iTunes and learn how to do a functional and simple UI! Besides, it would be familiar to everybody… Very usable UI concepts have already been discovered for the kind of issues Radioshift has to deal with, the flagship being iTunes. Why go the opposite direction, and go for the look of a fancy, glitzy and mostly useless web site? What a pity to have Radioshift and all its great underlying functionality put to waste by an insane User Interface!

RadioShift v1.6.2 OUTSTANDING! RadioShift makes recording internet audio streams absolutely simple. The basic idea is to "subscribe" to a stream according to start time and length. Manually, you must provide a streaming audio source, add any optional information (title, artist, genre), and schedule (date, time, length). Automatically, select Radio Guide, look for station or artist or subject, choose one, select "Subscribe", and, the title and schedule are instantly entered into a new RadioShift Subscription. RadioShift's Radio Guide and Subscription automatic scheduling is quite possibly the easiest subscription in software, today. RadioShift developers at Rogue Amoeba are superior and work constantly to improve RadioShift. Wishlist It would be nice to change RadioShift's naming convention of the saved audio files.

I'll stick to my former five-star review BUT there's one feature of this program that really annoys me. Every time you tune to a new station you have to listen to a fifteen-second advertisement before the station starts. Given the price the developers charge for this app., do they really need this second revenue stream, one that abuses their customers?? You might want to check out Radium before buying this product. Their developers are good people and don't do this kind of underhanded stuff.

For my purposes, this is the best available player because it lets me listen to just about anything I want. Before I found this, I was using different software to access different stations (iTunes for KRTH-HD2, AOL Radio or Radium for AOL Baroque, a special widget for Radio Hauraki, a great New Zealand rock station, and so forth). This allows me to access all the stations I want from a single application. Sweet! Nice interface, too. A bit pricey, but since I'm an Internet Radio fiend I don't mind buying it. Somebody said that the sound quality is inferior, but I have difficulty in believing that sound quality varies from one app. to another.

This refers to the new version 1.5.2. After some teething problems (caused by AppleScript conflicts, and sorted out promptly by the developers), RS 1.5.2 is working like a charm. Basically, it does exactly what it says on the tin. I particularly like the way it organises everything in playlists inside iTunes, making downloading to my iPod utterly painless. My only gripes are that the Radio Guide doesn't list a week's output for a station, and listing only by local time zone (not the station's native time zone) means that programs on late at night on the station I've subscribed to don't appear in the Guide until early the following morning. However, I know the developers are working on this. Given that I live in the broadcasting hell that is Germany, this is the best $32 I've ever spent.

The new update is brilliant! The folks at RogueAmoeba know their stuff when it comes to audio, and the initial versions of RadioShift had only MP3 streams, because there were too many problems with other formats (Real, etc.) Rather than include access to streams that would be problematic, RadioShift was kept to what was known to work well. I don't know enough to say whether support for native players (as opposed to web-apps, etc.) improved in other formats, or whether RogueAmoeba was simply able to figure out a way to make other stream formats as reliable as mp3 had been previously, but whatever the case is, the new update makes Radioshift not only the most solid and reliable Internet radio player available, but also now the most comprehensive (that I'm aware of). Streams in Real and Windows formats are included - meaning I can now get C-SPAN radio right in Radioshift. They even say they support web-based streams (can't vouch for this, as I haven't tried it yet)! If you've got a solid broadband connection and a yen for music from everywhere, Radioshift is now THE go-to application.

I want to like this but the gui is a total mess. worse than anything on windows... if I had the time I would show you how to lay out a radio station program. I hate the fact that it bobs up and down when you change stations _ WHAT THE HELL IS THAT FOR ? total waste of money - if you want to listen to internet radio get a logitech squeezebox, plug it into your hifi and enjoy... then use your computer for other things...

I love classic rock (yes I'm older) and thought this would be great as I like listening to the radio format. I did not mind searching for stations and the quality is fine while I'm sitting at the computer. However, I was greatly disappointed and decided not to buy owing to not being able to find more than a handful of stations. Oh, there are a lot of classic rock stations, but the majority would show the big yellow banner of NOT SUPPORTED STREAM. I went into prefs and checked to not show unsupported stations ... Whoa! After searching the third city of suddenly tiny selections I decided to call it quits. Very nice idea and a very nice app ... Just not ready for my music taste.

I love Airfoil and Hijack Pro so I said why not try Radioshift. Just like many comments here I have to agree that the application has quirks. AOL Radio for instance has a better sound quality not to mention Pandora (!!!). I am not aware of the issues with recording simply bc I never record but what drives me nuts is the fact that you cannot run a search on this thing. The World Map is USELESS - I can click on all the cities of this world they will never return any results. I can search for a radio station that I know for a fact is on Radioshift (Kiss Country - Florida) - the search returns NO RESULT. So unless you have 5 days to shift through the thousands of radio stations I am not sure you will easily find your radio station. If anyone has a different experience please help me out (nyse4 at yahoo dot com). For those who got Pulsar free with Airfoil - nice thing but Pulsar can never load Sirius or XM. What in the world RA?!?!!?!
