What's New in Version 3.1.3
Fixed an issue that prevented some users from activating premium subscriptions.
Great app to use with SiriusXM Internet Radio
I was looking for a desktop app to listen to SiriusXM Internet Radio and this one does the trick. I like that I can just use this app for that purpose instead of having to open my web browser (note that a subscription to SiriusXM is still required). Two features that would make this app even more awesome is if you could have a button to play the current song from the beginning as well as a 'Live' button to immediately synch back to the live stream at any time -- both of which are available on the SiriusXM web player and iOS app. I don't know if this is something third-party developers have access to, though. Some tabletop internet radios with SiriusXM support (from manufactures such as Marantz and Grace Digital), I believe have these functions, so it might be possible for Radium to incorporate them as well. The developers at CatPig Studios should definitely look into this!
Beats the SiriusXM web player
I’m finding it works well, so my experience isn’t reflected in some of the reviews. The app is simple and effective. I was able to enter my SiriusXM credentials and start streaming within minutes. It is quicker and easier to start than the SiriusXM web player, and it doesn’t get lost among all my browser windows during the day.
I guess I don’t need much — launch, connect, play/pause, quit — so I’m not missing anything with the minimal UI. Frankly, this is exactly the level of complexity I was hoping to find: something I could turn on and off as easily as a radio and have it just start playing music without needing lots of clicking and fiddling. This does that. I’m happy.
Lucky I have the old version
A while back I made it a habit to backup every single app I purchase on the App Store. This allows me to revert to a previous version in case an app gets updated and the update proves to be a failure.
I am so glad I did it. Radium has failed. The new UI is badly designed and the developers are not willing to acknowledge it. They run after their own head without listening to customer feedback. Well, fear not! I am running the 3.0.10 version which still has the great old UI! That works great.
The only caveat in the 3.0.10 version is that it’s no longer keeping the specified number of notifications in the notification center. I set it to show only the last 5 notifications, but instead it shows ALL of them (which is 20 max). But it’s ok. I can live with it. I rather have this minor annoyance than switching to the new and failed UI version.
