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.

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.

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?

Ich möchte meinen Kommentar von vorhin revidieren. Mit der Version 2.0.15 (1065) läuft dann alles!

Zum Program kann man nur Top sagen und es die einzige Alternative zum ehemaligen Radio Gaga (wird nicht mehr weiterentwickelt).

Hier werden wohl auch die Radiosender besser gepflegt! ( Ich habe noch keinen gefunden der nicht funktioniert)

Bin begeistert und kann es nur jedem empfehlen der Musik aus dem Internet aufnehmen möchte.

Should be 0 stars. Crashes on open.
Tunein's lousy iPhone app does not allow you to use the recordings you make. I found snowtape for the iOS platform but the directory was pretty lame. So I've been looking for an alternative in the mac os platform. Was hoping to see if Snowtape has a better directory on OSX; but it is non-functioning in 10.7.4. Was hoping that it could replace RadioShift which uses tunein radio's directory. Btw, FStream runs great and is super stable but does not have a directory...oh, well

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.

I like SnowTape 2 a lot, but since upgrading I can no longer connect with SnowRemote from my iPhone 2G nor iPhone 4. I have mailed customer support 3 days ago, but no reaction so far. Is anybody experiencing the same? The pairing seems to work, but then the remote host remains greyed-out and nothing happens even after minutes of waiting.

SnowRemote is no longer listed as product on the Vemedio website, the description for SnowTape 2 only mentions the use of the (infrared) Apple Remote, and the support form does not list the latest build of SnowRemote. However, the functionality is still there. Strange.

Vemedio was looking for Beta Testers on Twitter for SnowRemote last weekend. So I guess the update will be released soon.

Mustn't it be version 1.3.5 rather than 1.5.5 after the latest 1.3.4 version or am I missing something? Thanks. Fariborz AMIRSHAHI - Verona (Italy)

Lately I've been having more trouble with Snowtape prematurely cutting tracks, even with overlapping enabled. Is there a way to extend the overlap time? I've tried to leave feedback on the developer's website, but it doesn't seem to take. Hopefully other users have experienced the same thing and have a solution. Thanks!

OK! I Solved this myself. To avoid losing your stations kept locally.You have to place the following Folders on your Desktop.In ~/Documents /Snowtape Change the name to SnowtapeDocuments.~/Library/Metadata/Snowtape. After launching 1.5 Trash the Snowtape Folder in ~/Documents and insert the Folder on your Desktop SnowtapeDocuments.Change the name back to Snowtape. Put the folder Snowtape back into ~/Library/Caches/Metadata ,Then Launch Snowtape and all of your stations will be back.NOW on my G5 I did NOT do any of this but STILL got all my stations.Iused Sparkle to update.On my G4 12"Powerbook I also used Sparkle (the update tab) and lost all my stations and had to use the Directory ending up with 28 stations of my own interest. I have another 12"Powerbook G4 and I followed the example above and got all my stations.I hope this helps someone. I guess I can copy the Metadata and Documents Folder from the other Powerbook to get back the stations previously listed in the LOCAL Directory.

Quits (crashes) as soon as you click a station and the speaker icon shows that it is going to play. Great GUI and great idea but it fails to deliver. I trashed it and its preference. There was no ~/Library/Appsupport created.

Simply drop your files onto the radio list or choose "Import Files" from the application menu. You can also provide Snowtape playlist or stream URLs.

This means you can easily import a radio station onto Snowtape by clicking and dragging from the iTunes list. It works with any radio station you previously imported to iTunes as well as with the complete iTunes radio catalogue.

Get Album Artwork. Snowtape partners with Last.fm to give you the bonus of album artwork and additional album metadata. In most cases, Snowtape can download this information automatically for you. Alternatively, a "Get Album Info" button searches and adds any album info and cover artwork available.
