Hello Mark, it is not a malware. This program is to help you download Pandora music for free. You can first download the free trial to try to download Pandora music and then decide whether to pay for this program. It's all your choice.
What's the gimmick, how can this be free ? I don't trust something like this, it might be malware.
To my surprise it can identify music information very well!
I did well.

This is such a blatant sales pitch. Saver2 works for windows for free, and pandoraJam is far better for Mac... the only possible reason you tote this? You get paid too... or you don't know any better. I bet you know better.
I purchased this and I so much regret it. I am able to record the 1st song (rhapsody website), the the program temporarily freezes and the next song has already started, so it misses the recording the next song from the beginning. Also freezes, hangups, ....
The songs I recorded and transferred to iTunes won't play. They will play in the Wondershare player. How do I play them in iTunes?
Hello Olallie, that may be because the program fails to switch from the virtual sound card back to the physical card of the computer. Refer here for the solution.
When I press "record", the sound on my computer immediately stops, and won't return until I quit the program. And when I try to quit the program, it gives me a warning message that I am recording, but on the little bar where it should show the sound, there is no activity. Help!
