Frustration abounds when listening to the so-called “convenient” online streaming radio apps that promise free music but in actuality is riddled with advertisements and limited number of options to skip songs.
Rdio may have forgotten to add the “a,” but what is included in this online subscription based radio streaming entity is more than makes up for it.
Rdio works a bit different than its competitors in that it eliminates those annoying ads and instead allows customers to listen to the songs they want, without interruption. The other glaring positive in comparison is Rdio allows customers to pick and choose the songs they want to hear, instead of leaving that job up to a random shuffle that usually brings disappointment.
Because Rdio works more like an iPod with your favorite music, skipping between songs is a painless process that isn’t met with the aggravation of the ubiquitous phrase “you’ve reached your maximum amount of skips.”
The library of Rdio reads more like a remarkable catalog of songs compiled over the years of the most avid music lover. Rdio turns over its database of millions of songs to the user to enjoy. Once consumers capture the songs they want to hear, the playlist is compiled and follows you wherever you go and just about any device imaginable: laptops, smart phones and tablets.
Rdio also gives customers the ability to pair up with similar people who share the same interests as part of a network. Once Rdio and your new-found musically inclined friends see what you’re enjoying, they might throw you a few suggestions during your jam sessions.
One aspect of Rdio worth noting is that trying it is free but there is a charge once that trial concludes. The cost is incredibly reasonable, if for no other reasons than you can choose what music is played and the elimination of advertisements in the midst of the music.
Rdio takes center stage in comparison to comparable companies; the company doesn’t spend the majority of its time singing its own praises but rather listening to what customers want and delivering a performance that deserves a standing ovation.
