play button on rdio not working

This looks like a good service to me but it won't play anything on my vox. Everything else in the program seems to be working. I phoned kobo about this and they said there is no history of this problem and suggested a factory reset. Of course, this fixed nothing.

I contacted rdio service. They said that they have heard from other people about this issue on the vox and they are working on it.

Anybody else have this experience?

I haven't...I installed the slacker app instead as I have a Plus subscription and have the app already on my ipod touch and my blackberry... for $3.99 a month, it's cheaper than Rdio and works across all my devices...Vox, iPod touch and BB. Works fine on Vox, no problems!

I tried all the usual services. They all work pretty well across platforms. However I find rdio has the best selection in jazz and classical. Rdio is definitely not the least expensive though.

I had problems, it would not play entire songs or automatically play the next song so I did not sign up after the free trial. I prefer to buy music beforehand.

Why bother with radio apps that require registration and subscriptions? My musical tastes are hardly mainstream, but I can find most of what I want withe the tunein app for free.

How is your wireless connection? I have noticed that sometimes Rdio play button appears unresponsive when bandwidth is low. Trying lowering the quality of the streaming audio in the app and see if it helps.

Thanks James.
Worth a try.
Unfortunately I have already disabled high quality streams.
