When is net radio, not net radio? With netradio.
by on March 18, 2011
The internet has given us many things, and once we’ve finished with the main one, ahem, we sometimes actually look to see what else is out there – and one of the beauties is internet radio.
Imagine a world where fuzzy radio crackling is gone, replaced by SMOOTH digital signals that pump pure audio goodness into your ears – and that’s what this application is all about.
However, don’t go getting too excited now, as it’s not one of the fancy applications that lets you stream ANY digital station (despite what the name might hint at) but in fact limits you to just the stations from online network Traxx.fm.
It’s a difficult one to judge here, as we’re not sure whether to be angry, disappointed or impressed with the offering… on the one hand, it’s free, on the other, the name is going to dupe a whole load of users.
Let’s pretend that we’re big fans of Traxx – if that’s the case, then this is an ace application, offering multiple genres and a very easy to use UI to listen to anything from Cool Jazz to Funk to Electro.
It does munch on your data stream, like any application of this type, so be wary of that if you’re on a limited plan.
If you love Traxx or just want some background music for an awkward silence or something, this is a good free app. Otherwise, there are others that will better suit your needs.
