Good start, needs improvement.

Looks promising but a few points need addressing before I would purchase the "forever" option. I would never, under any circumstance, pay a subscription fee for an app like this.

1. "Forever" ≠ "3 years". Be upfront about this if you know from the get go that you might abandon the app after three years. Guarantee that users can at least use their saved favorites across platforms (iCloud sync) permanently (or until Apple breaks the functionality, which is beyond your control). For example, Radium, which was abandoned years ago, syncs with iCloud to this very day
2. No menu bar icon, no way to hide the dock icon. Take a peek at the old "Radium" and improve on that.
3. No local NPR station for Richmond, VA? Come on Iconfactory, NPR Streams for state capitals at least ought to be a given.

Once these items are addressed I'll be the first in line for a real "forever" purchese.

An overall delight to use

I have been a fan of Icon Factory products since iPulse, which is still going strong.
This app is simple but cleanly thought out. I did not think they could show album art as they do on some channels! And it is even in the desktop icon!
iCoud sync works wonderfully as I build up my list. Gotta love CarPlay and Continuity support!
Signed up to the big package. Such a deal.
A true Apple ecosystem app.

App seems fine, saving a station should not be a $12 / year subscription

I want to like this app, the featureset is perfect for my use cases. I'm just not comfortable with the subscription model at the price point it's at. There is a $20 permanent fee, but it feels about twice as much as I'd like to pay for it. It essentially isolates a small part of something iTunes can do in a nice interface. There's value in that, the price point is just higher than I'm willing to pay.

Developer Response ,

Triode's subscription price is $9.99 USD a year or .99 a month, not $12. Just an FYI, thanks.
