iOS SDKReleases

Developer Site v2

Today we've launched the new Rdio developer site! The goals of the new developer site are:

  • Make it easier to get started with the Rdio API
  • Up-to-date documentation that's easy to read
  • Showcase interesting applications
  • A design that matches the rest of Rdio

With this change, we've moved the developer site to For now the existing developer site,, will remain where it is with notices directing you to the new site. In the coming weeks we will retire the existing content and start redirecting to the new site.


Maintaining the documentation on the old site was just enough of a challenge that we didn't get around to it as much as we'd like. The new system is much better integrated with our workflow, and a pleasure to use. Easier updates for us means better documentation for you!

API Gallery

The previous API Gallery was sorely outdated. With the new developer site, we've refreshed it with a new list of applications. We'll be working to keep the gallery updated so you can discover fun and interesting applications.


You'll still need to visit Mashery to create and manage your applications; we've only migrated the documentation and API Gallery.

Still to come

With our improved developer site, we have the flexibility to improve it more rapidly. We've got a bunch of ideas, but we'd love to hear yours! Send us an email with your feedback and suggestions.

iOS SDKReleases

iOS SDK v1.3.3

We're happy to announce an update to the iOS SDK!

Here are the changes:

  • Fix -updateQueue:withCurrentTrackIndex: race condition. All queue manipulation methods are now serialized properly so that the required network requests don't create undesirable states.
  • Fix documentation on -play
  • Better sanity checking in various places
  • Handle iOS 7's status bar changes by pushing the Auth View down by the status bar's height if the SDK is running on iOS 7. A bit more information is available in the documentation.

The latest release is available at

With this release, we've also improved the iOS SDK documentation. The documentation now mentions the version number and release date of the most recent release. Visit the iOS SDK documentation and check it out.
