Rdio To Launch Mobile API For Third-Party Developers This Weekend

Like Rdio, but think they could be doing a better job with their mobile app? Now you can prove it. Want to make a music app that plays nothing Eddie Murphy’s “Boogie In Your Butt” on repeat? Sure, why not!

On Monday, Rdio will be announcing the launch of their Mobile API, allowing iOS and Android developers to tap into Rdio’s rather massive music catalog within their own apps. The API will handle all of the heavy lifting for things like search and playback, with tricks like the Top Charts and New Releases lists thrown in for good measure. Look for the full API documentation to go live sometime this weekend right over here.
