#RadioTray – The best and simple online radio streaming software for Linux Mint / Ubuntu. It’s minimalist Linux program because Radio Tray is an online radio streaming player that runs on a Linux system tray. Its goal is to have the minimum interface possible, making it very straightforward to use.
Radio Tray is not a full featured music player, there are plenty of excellent music players already. However, there was a need for a simple application with minimal interface just to listen to online radios. And that’s the sole purpose of Radio Tray.
The bookmarks configuration has gained a few enhancements. There’s no more “up” and “down” buttons to move things around. You can just drag and drop radio stations and groups freely. And on double-click it opens the edit dialog. I think this makes user interaction a lot easier than before.
