To celebrate the launch of Radium on the Mac App Store, I’m pleased to let you know that we have five promo codes to give away! Radium is a fantastic desktop radio player, which we have previously reviewed on the site. It currently has 60% off in the App Store, and is available for just $9.99.

Catpig Studios, the developer of Radium, has taken the approach of continuing to support sales from both their own website and the Mac App Store. We’re giving away promo codes for the latter today, but all Radium users will continue to receive support and updates going forward.

Entering is really easy. All you need to do is:

  1. Post a link to this competition – either on your website, or via Twitter
  2. Leave a comment, letting me know where you posted the link!

Simple! The competition will run for one week, and I’ll pick five winning comments at random on Friday 18th February. Best of luck!

Radio is a technology that has evolved a great deal, and it doesn’t seem to show any sign of disappearing. It’s very convenient to just turn on the radio and get a continuous stream of music for hours, without having to choose anything yourself. It’s very practical, and a brilliant wat to find new music!

However, local radio stations aren’t usually very good. Sometimes you want to listen to a station that plays a certain genre, or a specific talk show that isn’t aired on your local radio stations. That’s where online radio comes in.

There’s an amazing number of online radio stations out there, and plenty of variety to choose from. But of course, you’ll need something to listen to those stations. Today, we present you some of our favorite software picks for radio listening and recording.


Our sponsor this week is Radium, a lightweight internet radio player with a wonderfully retro icon! Radium allows you to listen to thousands of radio stations from around the world, right from your OS X menu bar. It’s simple, functional, and an absolutely fantastic way to listen to the radio on your Mac.

In our recent review, we gave Radium a lofty 9/10 rating. For such a simple and understated application, it packs a real functionality punch.

You can listen to all manner of subscription radio services, share songs with your social network friends and followers, adjust equalizer settings, view a song history, and use an array of useful keyboard shortcuts.

If you like Radium as much as we do, you’ll be pleased to discover that AppStorm readers can get 25% off the price of the app this week. Just order your copy from this page, and the discount will be automatically applied.

Be sure to spend a few minutes giving Radium a try today – you’ll be glad you did!

We’ve picked the winners! Thanks to everyone who entered – we’ll be sending out licenses code really soon. Congratulations to:

  1. Anthony
  2. Mothlike
  3. Syphadius
  4. Erika
  5. Constantin
  6. Clare Swindlehurst
  7. Joennie Sindo
  8. Jeremy Halvorsen

Today we’re kicking off a new competition to win a copy of Radium. We recently reviewed Radium, and were really impressed. It’s simple, functional, and an absolutely fantastic way to listen to the radio on your Mac!

We have nine licenses up for grabs, and entering is really simple. All you need to do is:

  1. Post a link to this competition – either on your website, or via Twitter
  2. Leave a comment, letting me know where you posted the link!

The competition will run for one week, and we’ll announce the winners on the Friday, 11th June. Good luck, and enjoy your weekend!

Radium’s grown up a lot since we first reviewed it, so be sure to check out our review of Radium 3, the latest version, as well!

I’m a bit of a BBC Radio 4 and World Service addict. We have a couple of digital radios in the house, and with the UK’s Freeview television network, it’s easy to listen to a number of digital stations via your TV. When I’m on the road away from any of my radios, and have access to a wireless network, I’ve used Phantom Gorilla’s unofficial BBC Radio Widget to get my fix.

That all looks likely to change, now that Radium has arrived. Read on for a walk-through of a simple and effective radio app that makes it very easy to tune in to your favourite stations – and discover hundreds of new ones – on your Mac.


Quick Look posts are paid submissions offering only a brief overview of an app. Vote in the polls below if you think this app is worth an in-depth AppStorm review!

In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Radium. The developer describes Radium as an internet radio player that’s designed from the ground up to be simple, intuitive, and lightweight. With its powerful search, thousands of supported stations (including Sirius/XM and Premium), and the ability to add your own streams, Radium will change the way you listen to internet radio.
