Ratings and Reviews
So close to being the ideal radio app
Every streaming radio app is frustrating. Triode comes the closest, which might make it the most frustrating of them all.
The one feature Triode desperately needs is the ability to upload your own replacement artwork for your favorited stations. For an app that places such a high value on aesthetics, having half of your favorites with perfect artwork sitting alongside the other half with low-quality icons (or generic ones made with the built-in icon maker) undermines those beautiful aesthetics. It's like an unsightly gash in a masterwork painting.
Other small gashes in the painting include favorites saved from the Our Picks section missing their text names, the lack of folder organization within Favorites, and the lack of Siri voice action support undermining the otherwise exquisite CarPlay experience.
It's so close.
The Iconfactory has a reputation for good design (they're not bad but I'm not sure they deserve the level they have) and I love radio so I decided to check this app out. The design is no tbad but I wouldn't say it is great either. There is one feature that I think is really great which is that there is a tone played on mobile devices to let you know it is doing sometning but hasn't got the stream yet. Beyond that there is nothing particularly remarkable about the app. Add to that the questionable wording of the license that "forever" equals approximately 3 years for a subsciption app that has received very few updates or enhancements since the initial release. For the money I would recommend the app Broadcasts which only has a one time purchase, offers more functionality, looks nicer (IMHO), works on all Apple devices that are supported and is updated more frequently than this app that asks for a subscription.
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.
