AOL Play for Android helps you discover and share great music

Looking for a way to share what you're listening to and discover some great new music at the same time? Check out Play by AOL. It's a new Android app which lets you post what you're listening to on Facebook or Twitter, sample free downloads from Spinner, and see what your friends are listening to. [Disclosure: Play, Spinner and Download Squad are all owned by AOL.] There's also the promise of "...

Rdio gets the jump on Spotify with API release, affiliate program

Rdio is a much-beloved streaming music service, and it's got one serious advantage over Spotify at the moment: it's already available in the U.S. So while Americans continue to wait for the arrival of Spotify, Rdio is doing its best to strengthen its position in the marketplace. To that end, Rdio is enlisting the aid of developers by releasing an API for the service and announcing an affilia...

Rdio arrives on Roku boxes everywhere

On-demand music streaming service Rdio, the offspring of Skype (and Kazaa, let's not forget) founders Janus Friis and Niklas Zennström, has now sauntered into your living room. Rdio is available as a channel on Roku boxes, marking the first time that Rdio is to be found on anything other than a website or mobile platform. The Rdio channel on Roku lets subscribers search for songs, listen t...

'Apple just f***** over online music subs for the iPhone' -- Last.fm co-founder on Apple's 30% cut

Speaking rather frankly on IRC, Last.fm's co-founder Richard Jones has condemned Apple's move to grab 30% of content-based subscription fees: "Apple just f***** over online music subs for the iPhone." Jones' apoplectic outburst is just one of many, too. Rhapsody yesterday said it won't bow to Apple's subscription policy, and CEO of on-demand music streamer we7, speaking to paidContent, thinks t...

Rdio reveals version 1.0 of iPhone app, slicker, faster, better than Spotify

Rdio, the subscription-only music-on-demand service, has massively overhauled its iPhone, iPad and iPod app. Initial response seems positive: the previous version of the app surfed around the 2 1/2-star mark on iTunes, and the new one is already racking up plenty of 5-star reviews. It's still only available in North America, incidentally. The new interface is beautiful (and boy does it make the...

Rdio launches embedded player, but you need a subscription to listen to the tunes

Rdio, the music streaming service from the guys behind Kazaa and Skype, has announced that embedding songs, playlists, and albums is now possible. Of course, to use this feature, you have to be an Rdio subscriber (which will set you back either $5 or $10 each month, depending on whether you want mobile access or not). What's more interesting (and disappointing) is that you have to be an Rdio s...

DLS Faceoff: Rdio is an incredible music streaming service for Android

If you have a smartphone with a fast network connection and an unlimited data plan, do you really need to have a ton of music stored locally? Wouldn't it make more sense to just stream it from the cloud on demand? I think it would make a lot of sense, and luckily for me, I'm not the only one. There are at least two major audio streaming offerings for Android at the moment: Grooveshark and Rdio. W...

Inside the new music streaming service Rdio, quick review and gallery

Last week news broke of Rdio, the new brainchild of the Kazaa and Skype creators. Everyone was very briefly elated until they found out a) it's USA-only, and b) it's still in the middle of private beta testing. Still, thanks to the kindness of a Download Squad reader, and some network hacking (I live in the UK), I can now tell you all about Rdio! If you prefer pictures, there's a high-resolution ...

Rdio is the phoenix rising from Kazaa's ashes... and it's legal!

After popularizing peer-to-peer piracy and single-handedly destroying the conventional-plastic-disc distribution channel, it's only fitting that the creator of Kazaa now plays a part in rebuilding the music industry. Enter stage left: Rdio, flanked by the creator of Skype. Sign up now, because you're going to want a piece of this pie when it leaves private beta testing. CD sales are at an all-...
