Air Radio Pro
By Giles Chanot
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Air Radio Pro raises the bar for radio apps. Quite a lot actually.
Featuring a huge array of stations from around the world, brilliantly presented with retina optimised hi-def graphics.
Tap the search icon to browse by genre & country or search by keyword, then just tap a station to start listening - change stations instantly with zero streaming lag. The currently playing station is highlighted with a white glow.
Tap and hold a station to start recording, then tap and hold again to stop recording (recordings automatically stop after 2 hours). You can even listen to one station whilst recording another. A beautiful pulsating red glow around a station indicates an ongoing recording.
Now playing information is displayed for most stations; recordings are saved under this name making it super easy to build up a library of songs which you can transfer to your Mac or PC via iTunes File Transfer. Listen to recordings on your device by clicking the search icon and going to the recordings tab.
Like a station? Tap the heart icon at the lower right hand corner and it's instantly added to your favourites. At any time, tap the heart in the top left hand corner to bring you back to your favourite stations.
Change station from the headphone remote and the lock screen (from headphone remote, double click to go to next station, triple click to go back to previous one).
Want to change the background? Click the search icon and go to the backgrounds tab. Choose from one of the beautiful built in retina compatible images, or click the plus icon to choose any image from your photo library.
Feeling sleepy? Click the Zzz icon and choose a sleep timer in 15 minute intervals. Your radio will very gradually fade out after the desired time.
Need to be woken in the morning? Click the clock icon and choose the wake up time. It's that easy! At the chosen time, the radio will gradually (but not too gradually) fade in.
Air Radio Pro strips away all the hassle and superfluous stuff that gets between you and a perfect radio experience. You won't want to go back to any other radio app.
Great for what it is
This program is very basic in station selections, info etc. it could use improvement.
But it is a great player in other ways. It starts stations Immediatly, with no buffering of other issues.....So you hop among stations very easily.
Its ease of use and thst feature are amazing, compared to other radio apps.
Nice interface, but I haven't managed to hear an entire news bulletin yet. It stops and mostly doesn't start again.
