Rogue Amoeba Launches Radioshift, PVR for Radio

Rogue Amoeba announced the immediate availability of its newest application, Radioshift, on Monday. The application allows the user to record and play back Internet and AM/FM radio.

Radioshift can be used to listen to over 50,000 radio listings from around the world, subscribe, and schedule recordings for playback. Streaming formats supported are: RealAudio, Windows Media, QuickTime and MP3.

The key to Radioshift is its built-in Radio Guide, which enables users to explore over 50,000 radio listings. While exploring the Guide, users can listen live to streams without worrying about the format of the stream. With a single click, audio can be subscribed to right from the guide. The audio will then be automatically recorded whenever it airs. Radioshift records in the background and has the audio ready for listening at any time.

Radioshift 1.0 is a Universal Application and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later. A fully functional demo is available, however the audio quality will degrade over time. It is priced at US$32.00.
