The interface is nice and clean, but it's basically just a web wrapper. That's fine, unless your internet connection is bad. Every time I select an item it takes a second or two to load. That makes it a bit frustrating to use.

Note: I only have a 1 Mbit internet connection, so take my comment with a grain of salt (also, no rating for me due to that fact).

I like it.
It has a clean UI and it is very easy to find new music. I love the fact, that you can open rdio in every browser and it looks like in the app.

Not many apps (in fact I can't think of one off of the top of my head) from third parties include AirPlay support built in. My guess is that it's a technical limitation, but I'm not totally sure.

The good news is you can AirPlay your Mac's audio if you're on ML by option + clicking the sound icon in the menu bar. There's also the popular Airfoil http://macupdate.com/app/mac/17357/airfoil if you prefer to stream only specific applications.

Neither of these are ideal solutions; but hey, they work! Hopefully Rdio and others will add this functionality natively soon :)

How could that be, as iOS AirPlay is pretty much ubiquitous in A/V apps?!

Another vote for AirPlay - I use it all the time to play Rdio on my stereo through my Apple TV. I don't think Apple currently gives Mac access to Airplay for third party developers. I believe this facility is limited to iOS devices.

even so I'm a big Spotify fan, Rdio makes it really easy to discover new music. I'm currently using both services.

The native app works quite well. Have had no stability issues, it's easy to use and at $10/month there's a lot of music to use on demand which is quite different from the Pandora situation.

This is NOT Freeware it is Shareware! The amount of Jazz here is miniscule. Obviously I don't like it. Someone removed my previous posts but I must reiterate that this (for me anyway) is a waste of money.

So MacUpdate is deleting comments now? Perfectly acceptable and perhaps helpful comments? Interesting.

Yes, this requires flash and is for the most part a "web wrapper" for the Rdio website. However, it looks native, loads up quickly, and works fairly well. It is, to date, the best streaming service available in the U.S. (and some are saying with this app it's better than Spotify).
