After playing with both for a week, Rdio wins for me, at least for the time being. The mobile app is very clean and sleek and does the job well. It does take a bit of getting used to figure out how to do everything, but I like it and it functions pretty well. Although I do wish that there was a lesser lag time between song changes, it’s something I can live with. The real deal breaker was of course the web interface, which makes my music collection and everything I want entirely accessible at any web browser on any computer. The AIR-based desktop apps are also very slick and well put together for Windows, although I’ve had much less success with the Linux client. Oh, well.
So that’s how it will be for me. Just signed up for an Rdio Unlimited subscription this evening. I hope it remains awesome!
