Rdio for iOS

Last month we rolled out a refreshed design to our iOS app and promised more enhancements were coming soon. Today we’re sharing with you the newest update to Rdio for iOS with the following features:

  • Social Listening — Just like in the web and desktop apps, now you’ll be able to see at a glance which friends have listened to which albums.
  • Full Screen — We’ve made music more visually dynamic by featuring the album art front and center across your entire screen.

Download Rdio for iOS and try out the new features for yourself. Be sure to follow @RdioAU on Twitter and Like Rdio on Facebook to find out what’s next for our apps.

Rdio for iOS Gets An Update

Rdio_ios_update

iOS users may have noticed a spiffy, new update to our mobile app today. We’re excited to share the first in a series of updates that we’re rolling out this year, all to make the Rdio experience more social and seamless no matter how you’re listening to music.

First and foremost, you’ll find the refreshed look and design makes navigation even easier. You’ll also discover new features including:

  • Long Press — It’s simpler to interact with the music. Just hold your finger down on any piece of music to share, sync, add to playlist or Collection, or play later.
  • Badges — Now on the lower right of any album art, new badges indicate which music you’ve added to your Collection (green) or synced to your mobile device (orange).
