For most of us, listening to music on a mobile device has simply become the primary way to enjoy your favorite tracks. If you’re in the market for a paid subscription music app, then you’re probably on the fence between Spotify and Rdio. Most people who I have talked to seem to be evenly split on their opinions about both services. While both apps are good with playlists, library selection, and functionality, neither one is entirely perfect. I’ve used both and can now say that after Rdio for Android received its much-needed UI overhaul, my vote goes to Rdio. Rdio has an extremely well designed UI now with an excellent music discovery feature that I personally enjoy over Spotify. So, if you don’t mind paying $9.99 a month to enjoy unlimited music without those pesky ads then continue reading to learn more about Rdio.
How it works:
Now that the Rdio app for Android is up to par with its iOS counterpart, I can safely recommend this app to anyone looking for a robust music subscription service. Rdio has an extensive music library and gives you all of the necessary tools to search, discover, and create custom playlists tweaked to your own personal taste. The developers have paid special attention to the dashboard’s feature set making it my favorite way to see what new songs have been recently released, what’s on heavy rotation, and stay on top of what my friends are listening to. If you’re still on the fence, then download the app and enjoy their 7 day free trial, you’re bound to fall in love before the trial is over.
Rdio is available for free in the Google Play Store. Android requirements vary with device. Play Link
