Rdio launches new Android app with awesome looks, lock screen controls
Rdio is one of the most popular music streaming services stateside along with apps like Spotify and Pandora, but up until now it lacked the fine polish on its Android app to really make the experience top notch. Now, this changes with the overhauled version of the application, bringing great visuals to Google’s platform and the same simple service.

The first thing you’d notice is the new home page which now shows trending tracks and new releases, making it easier to diversify your listening and discover new songs. It also picks up in social - now you can check out user profiles and their favourite songs and even add them as friends (hello, LastFM). You also have better search allowing you to only look into cached items. The updated Rdio app also features lock screen controls for easier access.

In terms of service, we mentioned it’s simple and remains that way - there are over 12 million tracks for you to pick from and you can make your own playlists out of that collection. 

Now all of this costs $10 a month - and that’s what you would need to pay in order to save some time doing endless searches for tracks online. Is it worth it? Are there better alternatives? Chime in with your opinions below.
