Rdio is a service which was set up in the United States by the founders of Skype. Now is spreading worldwide gradually, emerging as a decent competitor to other similar well-known service. One of the plus points of Rdio is its mobile app. Let’s focus on it.
Rdio app for Android has been set in a good-looking Holo layout. Actually, it’s been optimized to be run on ICS and Jelly Bean interfaces. It’s one of the best apps of this kind regarding smoothness and transition effects. In addition, it’s highly intuitive: its dashboard allows a fast access to all the sections that made up Rdio service.
Thus, you can access, edit and subscribe playlists, view your playing queue, check activity (your friends and your own on Rdio timeline), history, collections, top charts, new releases and recommended. Actually, Rdio has a powerful recommendation engine based on your history and activity. You can play your favorite music even when you’re offline.
Catalogue isn’t as huge as other well-known services but I would say it’s quite fair. However, its music database is growing in quantum leaps: competitors should fear that. There’s no complaints regarding music quality. However, we’re missing equalizer and other controls to customize sound quality.
Bear in mind that Rdio doesn’t have any free flavor, that’s it, there are two available subscriptions after this 7-day trial expires: that’s $4.99/month for desktop access, and $9.99/month for unlimited access including on mobiles. Since prices are almost the same than others similar services, we recommend you to give this trial a go and decide. You may like more others but that’s a matter of taste. The app doesn’t disappoint at all.
