The Rdio app for iOS has just been updated. The latest update is a smaller one, just a point release that brings the version up to 1.0.2. That said, while just a smaller update and with just a few items listed in the “what’s new” section in the App Store — it still seems like an update that will be welcomed. The changes include;
- Fixed occasional hanging and crashing during playback
- Fixed album release dates
- Improved syncing controls
- Added playlist refresh feature
With that, I also have a confession to make, despite being a long time fan and supporter of Slacker Radio, I have been cheating. Just yesterday I fired up the App Store on my iPhone and downloaded the Rdio app and set up a trial account. So far, I must say I like, and at this point can see myself becoming a subscriber. But before I get ahead of myself, let me run with Rdio for a week or so and report back.
And as to why I finally decided to give Rdio a good look. Two reasons really, the first being that Slacker has been promising on-demand listening for quite a while and I am tired of waiting. But probably more important — I could no longer ignore the buzz and positive comments from others in the blogosphere.
