Rdio for iOS

The Good Rdio for iOS lets you browse, listen to, and sync music to your device from a library of over 18 million songs. New streaming radio features make it useful to non subscribers.

The Bad For its great features, the subscription price still feels too high.

The Bottom Line If you don't mind paying a monthly fee, Rdio is a great way to listen to and discover new music, set up playlists, and share with friends and other members.

Review

All the music you could want, for a price

Editors' note: This review has been updated with new features from the latest version of Rdio for iOS released October 3, 2013.

Rdio for iOS is a subscription-based music service offering more than 18 million songs as well as added social components that let you connect with friends to share and discover new music, but it's not cheap. Still, with an updated version of the app for iOS, you may be swayed to sign up, with new streaming radio stations, a redesigned interface, and a cloud-based unified player that syncs your queue with your other devices.

Get started by downloading the free app, then sign up at the Rdio Web site for a 30-day free trial. As part of the Rdio community, you can share music with other members, add friends, and follow their music choices to find new music. You'll also be able to create unlimited playlists and share your playlists. This social component offers great possibilities for music discovery because you'll not only be able to listen to music and playlists from your friends, you also can explore chart toppers, and recent activity from other random users of the service.
