iRate radio

iRATE radio is a collaborative filtering client/server mp3 player/downloader. The iRATE server has a large database of music. You rate the tracks and it uses your ratings and other people’s to guess what you’ll like. The tracks are downloaded from websites which allow free and legal downloads of their music.

iRATE radio’s developers just announced their new 0.3 release. Get if from iRATE’s stable download page.

It works a whole lot better than 0.2 did. I urge you to try it out. It’s still not pretty, but it works well.

The Mac OS X version is not quite ready, but is quite usable. I’m doing some of the work on it myself. Either check back in a day or two, or if you like, you can download the test build from iRATE’s unstable downloads page
