When we announced the Rdio API during SXSW 2011, we also promised that a mobile version would be coming soon. Today, we’d like you to take a look at our brand-new Mobile Playback API for Android and iOS.
If you had a great idea for a music app but wondered how to clear the tunes, the Rdio Mobile Playback API is for you. Make an app that searches and plays all the artists, songs, albums, playlists, and top charts in Rdio’s catalog of over 8.5 million songs. You can also build and edit playlists, show a user’s network Heavy Rotation, follow other people, and view Collections.
Attending Google I/O 2011? Take a closer look at our Mobile API on Android devices at Rdio’s Developer Sandbox at Moscone Center in San Francisco. If you won’t be there or want to see the API in action yourself, download the Rdio Music Quiz from the iPhone App store.
While our Mobile API doesn’t yet support our affiliate program, it will soon. So make sure to sign up for it now and start building that incredible mobile app you always wanted to make.
