…The API gives developers the ability to create web applications that can search, access and play all of the artists, songs, albums, playlists, and top charts in Rdio’s catalog.
I don’t know much about software development, so this might be way off, but this reads like there’s no way for Windows, Mac and Linux developers to use the API.1
Sounds ridiculous, so I suspect that I’m wrong. But why emphasize web applications?
Anyway – potentially excellent news for Rdio users. The streaming music service could have a software landscape as rich as Twitter’s.
