New design puts focus on album art
Streaming music service Rdio has launched a redesigned version of its Mac client. The updated software takes after the current iOS app, adopting a minimalist interface. In the Now Playing view, clicking a list icon at the bottom right of the screen will bring up album art and the current playlist; an enlarged, blurred-out version of the album serves as a background.
The Mac app requires OS X 10.6 or later. An Rdio subscription costs $5 per month for desktop and web access, or $10 per month with mobile access included. The service can be tried free for 14 days.
