Ratings and Reviews
Labor of Love for Internet Radio
While the number of internet radio stations continues to grow, the days of easy discovery are long gone. Triode fills that gap and adds much in the process.
Up until a few months ago, you could play internet radio in iTunes - but it wasn’t a great experience. The station list was poorly maintained and missing lots of stations. With the recent update to Music on Mac and iOS devices, the bad situation has become even worse. iTunes no longer provides a list of internet stations. The new version of allows playing stations from services like iHeartRadio, TuneIn and Radio.com, but only if you know exactly what station you are looking for. There is no discovery, no saving favorites, and no apparent support for independent stations unless you know the exact streaming URL. Good luck with that.
That’s where Triode comes in. It is a great internet radio player with solid discovery tools. Rather than throw users into a giant list, the app starts with about 30 well-curated stations as starting points. Search allows you to view and search thousands more stations and save favorites. Once you start playing a station, Triode shows art work from Apple Music or iTunes. The integration allows users to save great songs directly to playlists or add artists they love to listen later.
Triode is supported on every Apple platform - Mac, iOS, MacOS, Apple TV. The subscription is optional - it unlocks high quality artwork and saving favorites - but one purchase works across all the platforms. Frankly I purchased it outright because I love what they’ve done for internet radio users. And if they add a few more picks to their initial 30, that’s just perfect with me.
Great Little App
So far I am loving Triode & its simplicity. 1 suggestion, maybe having the volume accessiblie album view when a station is playing. It would also be nice to see a "recently played" list of songs you can look back at.
Lastly, I would pay $20 for a real "forever" plan, not forever aka 3 years.
If only Apple Music hadn't just added radio stations
I would have been all over this app last year. But now that Apple Music actually supports normal radio stations it's hard to justify keeping tracking of yet another subscription, however cheap.
