Pulsar sat radio client
Rogue Amoeba has unveiled Pulsar, a desktop client for listening to XM Radio Online and SIRIUS Internet Radio. Subscribers to the satellite radio services can use the program to access both corresponding web-based versions, without using extra hardware or a browser. Listings are continuously updated with station and current song information, while users can also save any favorite stations. The client can work with Audio Hijack Pro and Airfoil for recording streams or distributing the audio via AirPort Express.
Pulsar requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher and can be downloaded for a free trial, with the highest quality audio available for 20 minutes. The software is still in a public preview stage, although a license key can be purchased for $15. A complimentary license is available for new and existing customers of other Rogue Amoeba products.
