Nexus Radio is a desktop application that streams thousands of internet radio stations right to your desktop, meaning you don't have to go hunting on the web.

The slick interface is packed full of features and options, while the stations themselves are easy to negotiate. Nexus Radio's selection of broadcasters is arranged by musical style, station name, bitrate and format. Although we hadn’t heard of lots of the stations on offer, there is a great variety in all genres and you’ll have no problem finding music to listen to.

When you get bored of listening to streamed radio, Nexus Radio also lets you search for artists and songs. You can mark songs and artists as favorites, for easy access later, tag them, and even directly record audio to your computer. If all that that wasn't enough, the program comes with some cool visualizations, as well as Facebook integration.

Despite the great selection of radio stations and extensive options, Nexus Radio has a few issues that make listening slightly less comfortable than it could be. Adding favorites is not very intuitive, something that complicates the playing of results found via the search. In addition to this, many of the additional features must be managed via the Nexus Radio webpage, which doesn't make the experience entirely self-contained.

Nonetheless, Nexus Radio is a great little streaming application, and if a few fiddly problems don't bother you, you're sure to be grooving away as soon as you download.

Nexus Radio's great selection of stations means there's something for everyone.

    "Good collection of radio stations."

    I like the fact that so many radio stations are small and interesting. I particularly like the 'new age', stations. More.
