Rdio comes to Australia, New Zealand but Windows Phone app still terrible

Rdio

We haven't covered Rdio around these parts too much, partly because there are plenty of other alternatives that we're more familiar with (e.g. iHeartRadio, Last.FM, etc.). Still, we imagine for a few people in Australia and New Zealand who may want to try it, so good news for them as they now have access to the music streaming app.

That's the good news. Well that and there's been a Rdio app in the Marketplace for quite some time, meaning you can now also stream it to your Windows Phone. Which is all great except for the fact that the Rdio Windows Phone app is pretty awful, judging by the reviews in the Marketplace. The consensus seems to be that it barely works and is coded terribly, despite being updated numerous times.

So congrats on the new service and our condolences on the app which can be found here...if you dare.

Works... But only for a while then it crashes my 7mozart! And U have to take battery out. Also don't like how U only get a 7day trial and then $10 a month!
