Annoying presentations and advertisements at the beginning of the tracks, which affect the music quality with other programs are eliminated through Radiotracker’s intelligent fade-in/fade-out function. Radiotracker is the only solution in the world which uses ID3 tags to deliver album covers in addition to artists, titles and names of album.

A free and limited test version of Radiotracker is offered for download at http://www.radiotracker.com. The full version can be bought from online shop for 14.90 euro or 16.90 us-dollar. In contrast to illegal Internet music swapping services, Radiotracker is legal and allows users to build up their music collection with half of the connection costs since Internet access costs associated with other music swapping services do not apply. Users also save money through a recording control feature which is based on time and amount of music in gigabytes. This recording control allows users to define the length of time and amount of music Radiotracker should record.
