The current solution in iTunes
While Apple is promoting their very own 24/7 Radio Station, Beats 1, they seem to not care much about the actual “Internetradio” Itunes-Segment. The UI is a plain standard list with thousands of radio streams, categorized in several genres and not one bit of additional functionality or feature. It starts with a missing search-function or anything like a proper sort mechanism and even the “Add your own Stream”-Button is hidden in the menubar. Everything here just tells you to absolutely not use it.
The approach of iRadio
iRadio is worldwide radio culture, managed and played with few clicks alongside the stuff you do on your computer. The fundamental idea is a radio player, always accessible with just one click on the icon in the status bar on the upper right side of your Mac’s screen. This allows you to instantly tune in and channel-hop through your favorite radio streams at any time. An additional library view provides you with the entire range of worldwide radio streaming to choose from and helps you to discover new findings and create an easy to use selection of the content that matters for you.
