CNET Editors' review
Rdio for Mac offers easy access to the online music subscription service of the same name and all of its features right from your Mac's dock. The application integrates easily, works seamlessly, and makes using Rdio more convenient.
After downloading, the free application requires an existing or new Rdio account to use. For new users, clicking a well-labeled link makes signing up easy with a confirmation e-mail. The user can then sign in to the application. The main menu is basic, with a search field on the left and playing controls on the bottom. The playing controls operate as one would typically expect, with a slider available to indicate the current song time. As an added bonus, Rdio for Mac lets you use the media keys on your Mac's keyboard for easier control. As the user types a name into the search area, the program automatically attempts to match an existing artist name. The search results display quickly and are easy to see in the main window. Other buttons allow sharing to Facebook and Twitter for those signed in to their accounts.
Rdio for Mac will be useful for Mac users with Rdio music accounts who may want an application that allows them to navigate the service without using a Web browser.
It's a native Mac app with all the features you expect from Rdio, plus access to your keyboard's media keys, iTunes collection matching, mini-player window, and more. Use the media keys on your Mac keyboard to easily pause, play, and skip through your music. All the features you expect from Rdio in a standalone application. Never go hunting for that browser tab again. Bring your Rdio Collection up to speed by matching it with the iTunes library on your computer.

"GARBAGE! Really a misleading APP."
Version: Rdio 1.04
I can see nothing to commend this app.
NO JAZZ,Really SHAREWARE. Not to recognize the only pure culture associated with the US shows a disdain for our heritage.
This app is something for Jazz fans and Latin Music to avoid.
