Ikim FM is a simple widget developed for the Yahoo! Widget Engine platform, that allows users to listen to the Ikim FM radio station, one of the Islamic radios in Malaysia. It is easy to install on the desktop and to set up.
The interface of the app is based on a very small frame that you can move to any position on the screen, with the help of the mouse cursor.
The stream automatically plays at initialization. It is possible to adjust the volume level or to mute it, but there are no other options available through this widget.
However, thanks to the default settings provided by Yahoo! Widget Engine, you can open the context menu and bring up the Widget Preferences panel, where you can set the frame to stay on top or below all the other windows, to ignore mouse events and to prevent dragging. Plus, you can set its opacity level to a preset value, ranging from 20% to 100%.
The app does not put a strain on the computer's overall performance, as it uses a minimal amount of CPU and system memory. It has a good response time and works well, without making the OS hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. All in all, this widget provides the simplest method possible to connect to the Ikim FM radio station.
