Ever since the popularity of Pandora and Spotify have gained some steam, Rdio has been quietly hiding in the corner, but the company is poised to keep going and make its users happy. Rdio’s music-streaming app for iOS updated today, which the company says makes the “Rdio experience more social and seamless no matter how you’re listening to music.”
First off, Rdio introduced an all-new design for the app, which not only makes the interface look more modern and sleek, but it’s also easier to navigate. It has a simple minimalist look that makes it quick and easy to find what you need. There certainly wasn’t anything wrong with the previous user interface, but it never hurts to makes something even better.
There’s also a couple of new features that Rdio introduced as well. For starters, there’s a new “Long Press” feature, which Rdio says will make it “simpler to interact with music.” All you do is tap and hold on any piece of music, and from there, you can share it, sync it, add it to a playlist or “Collection,” or just set it to play later.
The app now also has “Badges,” which show up on the lower right corner of any album art and indicate which music you’ve either added to your Collection or synced to your mobile device. Adding music to your Collection will show up with a green badge, while tracks synced to your mobile device appear with an orange badge. The update is available now in the iTunes App Store.
