CNET Editors' review
While there are a number of streaming services available on smartphones, Rdio's quick operations and diverse collection make it a good choice for unlimited and on-demand music streaming. Apart from a large music catalog, this app provides users with a well-designed and streamlined interface. The only visible downside to this app is that it isn't free.
Rdio requires a user account to be set up in order to operate. The account allows for a free trial period, but after this the account requires payments of different levels depending on the devices used for listening. Once initiated, the program moves into a main menu with a search icon in the upper-right and a category button in the upper-left. Clicking this reveals a menu of music genres, as well as buttons for history, playlists, and account information. The main part of the menu contains squares with album information, including artist and album name. Users can click on the albums to bring up a play menu at the bottom of the phone screen. This also displays the album name and the song currently playing. Swiping this up reveals a window with all of the remaining album information, including cover art, track information, and controls for the current song. The controls are typical of song playing apps, with play, fast forward, rewind, and shuffle buttons. A slider also shows the total song length. Playback performed well during testing, with good quality and no problems streaming.
Although it isn't free, music lovers will appreciate Rdio's music selections, album information, and overall quality.
