What was new in Audials Radiotracker 11 in 2013?

Learn about the latest, the improvements and the difference between Gen 11 and Gen 10

Modifications and new features - giving you more of what you want

In the brand new Audials 11 generation, we implemented even more suggestions by Audials users into the development of the new generation and worked closely with heavy users during an expanded test phase. And when the dust finally settled, everyone agreed: 11 is faster, more stable and easier to use than ever. Come and check out the new and improved!

Heavy users are convinced by improved music finding functions, innovations in the Music Universe and the Diamond radio stations

The brand new Music Universe did especially well in tests among heavy users. Two additional innovations that received high praise were the improved search results for targeted music tracks with more charts, and the improved functionality of the wishlists. The improved radio view and its new side columns for available radio stations, as well as the recording editor, were rated as highly useful. Heavy users also were thoroughly impressed by the accuracy of recordings made from the new diamond radio stations, while others found the new playlist displays in combination with the new music management functions in the media center to be an added 'wow' factor.

Come and see for yourself what everyone's talking about!

In the following expandable tables, you can see all the new features and highlights in Audials 11 with images and texts:

1) What’s better about the user interface and user friendliness compare to Gen 10?
