8tracks Radio comes in handy to any Mac user who wants to discover and share new music. The application gives you access to multiple songs and music mixes posted by users from all over the world and shows you from which websites you can purchase the tunes.
This program comes with a nicely-designed and intuitive interface, provides you with a built-in search tool, and lets you mark your favorite songs. In addition, it comes with an integrated sound volume controller. You can play songs from various categories, like Indie Rock, Chillout, Dance, Classical, etc.
Unfortunately, not all features are available for free. To be more exact, you need to make an in-app purchase to be able to access the liked or played tunes, suggestions, etc. Also, if you wish to control the player with your keyboard, you need to install an additional tool on your Mac. It can be downloaded and installed from the homepage of the developer within moments.
However, this application is a great source of music for users who wish to easily find new songs without using their default browsers.
With that being said, I'd say it's worth installing this program on your Mac and making the in-app purchase. The acquiring price is affordable and definitely worth it if you're a die-hard music lover.
