Rdio goes universal, adds in-app purchasing


Rdio has released an update to its on-demand subscription music streaming app for the iPhone and iPod touch adding native iPad support. With Rdio 1.2 users can now take advantage of a UI specifically designed for the iPad with high resolution artwork, playful on-screen controls, track listings and portrait and landscape support. As with the iPhone and iPod touch version, Rdio on the iPad also provides access to offline music listening, Rdio social network updates, viewing of user profiles and access to charts, heavy rotation, new releases and recommendations. The latest version also now allows users to purchase Rdio subscriptions from directly within the app via in-app purchase. Rdio 1.2 is available from the App Store as a free download; a subscription for Rdio Unlimited is required to use the app beyond an initial 7-day free trial period.
