Radio Now! is a free internet Radio app for Windows 8 devices that allows you to listen to over 9000 radio stations. The app is beautifully designed, and what is absolutely striking about this app is its interface! Don’t believe me? Here’s a screenshot to prove it!
The app is designed to look like a retro styled radio. But don’t get me wrong here, the app is only designed to look like a radio straight from the 80’s, but it offers all the modern style and genres of music as well, right from Rock, Soft Rock, Jazz, etc. The app is very lightweight, and offers exceptional music quality.
On my test machine, the app barely consumed any noticeable battery. The app performed beautifully, and supported docked view, which, in my opinion is a great addon if you guys want to multitask along with listening to some splendid music. The app even ran flawlessly in the background, when it was minimized.
Radio Now! is available for absolutely free from the Windows App Store.
How to use the Radio Now! app on your Windows 8 device…
Radio Now! is very easy to use. When downloaded on your Windows 8 machine, simply fire it up, and you should be good to go. Upon launching the app, you will be presented with an exceptionally beautiful interface, designed to look like a radio straight from the era of your grandmas! Perhaps that’s why it just looks so amazing, because you don’t get to see such things so often now. Anyways, back to the topic.
The above is the interface which presents itself on your screen on launching the app. To listen to music of a particular genre, simply click on the corresponding button at the top. Suppose you want to listen to Hawaiian music, simply click on the Hawaiian button from the control buttons at the top, and the music should automatically start playing on your Windows 8 device.
The genre of music that you select to be played will become green. For instance, I was listening to Hawaiian music stations in the below screenshot, and hence all other station buttons are red, while the Hawaiian button is lit up green.
You can change the radio station just like you would on a normal radio, by clicking on any one of the white buttons at the bottom of the screen. In the above screen, I have selected the last button from the six white buttons at the bottom.
This is all that you need to know to get started with using the Radio Now! app on your Windows 8 device. You can also check out the App Radio Internet Radio app for your Windows 8 device.
