Control Rdio on Your Mac Remotely From Your iPad

Rdio automatically allows you to remotely control a currently playing browser session. For example, you are listening to rdio on your iMac connected to your good speakers and you log on your laptop. By default, you can control the prior session. It’s a nice feature if you are using Airplay throughout your house.

With the Request Desktop Site feature in iOS 8, you can use your iPad to control Rdio now.

  • Open Rdio.com in Safari
  • Tap on the URL bar and Pull Down
  • Request Desktop Site
  • Login as usual

Do this first on your new iPhone

Whether you are getting a new free iPhone 5C, switching from another vendor, or upgrading to a shiny new 6 from another vendor, you will probably find yourself entering your email address at least a dozen times. As you use your phone, you may find yourself entering your email address dozens and dozens more times.

You can make a shortcut for that.

I use the phrase “em” for my personal email and “gm” for my gmail account. If you have an accidental entry, you can always cancel the auto-correct popup.

* Some apps that use web-signups (like google music and amazon music) do not accept the keyboard shortcuts.

* Shortcuts are disabled in password fields

Update: Shortcuts aren’t working with swiftkey keyboard.
