Works as advertised, great support
Before purchasing this app, I emailed Radyo support with a question. They replied within 30 minutes; great support! My question (for the benefit of any readers) was whether or not "regular" radio stations were included and not just Internet radio stations. Yes, FM radio stations that have a web presence are accessible by this application.
You can minimize the app so it only uses a small amount of desktop real estate; very similar in size to iTunes when it's minimized. Stations are available from around the world and in the US. You can drill down on US stations by state, which is a nice touch. Radyo also sports a separate volume slider so you can keep your radio volume lower than your system sounds. Again, nice touch since I listen mostly at work.
You can't record, but it's important to note that this is an Apple limitation, not a Radyo limitation. Since Radyo is playing nice with Apple policies, I hope this translates into support and upgrade longevity for the app. I'd like to see a 'BUY' feature where you can purchase the song you're listening to from iTunes.
Great job guys, thanks!
OK, not so hot for US users
I bought and ran 1.0. I noticed a few issues and contacted the developers. They got right back to me and are responsive, but don't seem to be coding for this project. For United States users, note that you CANNOT search US radio stations. You have to search state by state (yes, X50). This doesn't seem to be a difficult fix, but it has been months since I contacted the developers. I am finding it about as easy to search with Safari and play in iTunes. Disappointing.
Lists the stations I want, but they don't work
I find all the stations I care about in the listings, but when I try to listen to them, I often just get a message that says the "station is not available." So the app seems kinds useless.
