Tune In With Radioshift 1.0.5

Radioshift IconOur newest application Radioshift hasn’t seen an update in a couple of months, but today we’re happy to unveil version 1.0.5. If you haven’t used Radioshift, it’s our tool for listening to and recording Internet radio. With its built-in guide, you can search over 50,000 radio listings, then listen or subscribe with a single click.

This update adds filtering preferences to the Guide, to enable you to hide listings that require additional software, as well as listings that Radioshift doesn’t currently support. We’ve also improved Subscriptions so that programs are linked from a specific station’s listing. This is especially important for syndicated content that may appear on dozens of stations, such as NPR programs. We’re also always working to improve reliability of recordings, and this update fixes a rare crashing bug with MP3 recordings, along with many other minor issues.

This free update is recommended for all Radioshift users on Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5, and can be downloaded right from the Radioshift page. If you haven’t tried out Radioshift yet, grab the free trial, and get started listening to and recording Internet radio content from around the world!

    When can we expect Subscriptions to work properly in regards to the computer being asleep and why no “record now” button?

    Joe: We’ll be working to improve playback in the future – this is a very large program, and there are many things we want to improve. Stay tuned for plenty of updates.

    Curious: We’ll see what happens in the future – it’s on our list of things to consider.

    Ryan: Subscriptions certainly should be working just fine, even if the machine is asleep. There are caveats – if you have a laptop, you need to leave it open, or else it can’t wake up fully, among other things. If you’re having issues with Subscriptions, you should contact us directly for Support.

    As for “Record Now”, it’s something to watch for in the future. Like I said, the breadth of what Radioshift will eventually do is quite large, and it will take time for us to get there. For now, we’re focused on timed recording. Live recording is something we’ll consider for the future.

    One thing I’d like to see is better buffering of Internet radio feeds or control of the buffer size. I’ve noticed that a lot of small gaps appear in my recordings off of the Internet, particularly if the stream is running above 96kbps, across the board. I’ve never seen this problem with Audio Hijack Pro recording a stream via iTunes at medium or large buffer size. Thanks.

    I miss searching radio stations by country. That world map is nice though I miss selecting a country and list all stations. A mini mode (like ITunes offers) would be nice too. $32 is too much for students.
