Ludwigsburg, Deutschland - December 21st 2009. Vemedio is publishing the new version 1.5 of Snowtape today. Snowtape is the missing iTunes recording function. The pleasure of online-radio is brought onto the desktop and can record the transmission. Automatically song information like title, artist, album cover are sought out on the internet. The recordings can be processed later and directly transmitted to iTunes.
New Online Radio Catalog
The new now in Snowtape integrated radio catalog offers a multitude of radio stations. The user can search by popularity, genre or country and hear radio stations directly, import them or share with friends by email or twitter. The user can further add his own radio stations and publish the catalog under a nickname. The editors check the catalog regularily and thus garantee the up-to-date status and availability.
AirTunes with Airport Express
Snowtape not only makes it possible to hear radio on your desktop, but also through AirTunes - known through iTunes - to transmit the radio signal wireless to one or more Airport express stations and thus to detached loudspeakers. The detached loudspeakers are found automatically in the network and can be chosen through the program menu by the user. After the optional password entry the output of the radio signal is put out parallel to the computer sound to the detached loudspeakers.
Snowtape is available in English, German and French.
Price and Availability
Snowtape can be downloaded through www.snowtape.com. The software can be bought as online licence at Vemedio for USD 29 or bought as a box at Application Systems Heidelberg for the price of EUR 25.
Snowtape needs a minimum of Mac OS X 10.5.2 or higher, an Intel- or PowerPC-based Mac and a wideband internet connection.
