Audials Radio Player Recorder is the new radio player in town that is making waves on Android and it is not just packed with the most wanted radio stations of the East Coast, Midwest, South and West Coast in the US, it also has over 70,000 radio stations available for streaming.
It includes features like zapping, alarm mode, sleep time and the option to record your favorite music directly from the radio in CD quality with a single tap! The Audials radio player has quite a simple, intuitive and yet elegant UI that allows you to choose between listening to any live radio station of your choice, recordings that you have saved or podcasts.
Choosing to listen to a live radio station will give you the options to browse through your favorite radio stations (local or international) and Genres. Each radio station has thumbnails, a station name, the current playing song title, the file format and bitrate, visible to you as you browse through the radio stations list.
You’ll notice five tabs on the top of the radio station: Listen, Record, Similar, News and Zapping. The Listen tab is the tab that contains information about the currently playing song and it is the tab you’ll first come into.
The Record tab is the tab that will allow you record the currently playing song and you can add markers if you wish to. The Similar tab contains a list of radio stations that are similar to the one you’re currently listening to.
The News tab will let you check Facebook and Twitter feeds of both the radio station you’re listening to and the current artist. The Zapping tab will effect a quick zap into another radio station’s feed. Talk about magical scanning.
To access your recorded tracks, navigate to the recording section on the home screen, in there you will be able to view all the files local to your device. You can also check the podcast section out for podcast entries and subscribe to your favorite channels.
