A review of Calaym by Sven Sørensen
Calaym is a simple audio player for Windows which sticks to the basics. It supports Internet radio stations.
The main layout of the program is very basic and does not include skins, unless you also include the secondary skin available during setup.
With Calaym, you've got yourself a probably which uses very little system resources and sticks to its main function: to play music.
The playlist of this audio player is also pretty basic and adding items to it involve selecting directories where you mp3 files are located. It also supports a few other media formats such as FLAC, OGG, WMA and MIDI.
Apart from its core features, Calaym can also schedule events like an alarm clock as well as adding supported Internet radio station URLs for continuous playback. There are no stations included so users must add stations on their own.
