Most of my apps are non optimized for my 8x, it's quite sad :(
Anyhow, Beem Plus is awesomeeee

 

If you think Pamela`s story is neat,, two weeks ago my girlfriend's half sister actually earned $7493 just sitting there 20 hour's a week in their apartment and they're roomate's step-mother`s neighbour did this for 3 months and got paid over $7493 parttime from a pc. the guidelines on this address, http://www.ebay.com.qr.net/j9yu

Actually, I thought Pamela's story sucked ass which is almost as bad as your story. Besides, I routinely make MILLIONS just sitting on my ass scratching my testicles. Top that, Nadine!

WPSteve says:

Did they fix the music volume issue?

spcdog says:

That, or the issue with resuming streaming. I really appreciate that we have this app, and it's super awesome that the developer is actively fixing/improving things, but these two bugs really detract from the experience.

Aldoron says:

Did anyone else have their phone heat up more than usual when using this app? I did on my L920.

I did with a previous Lumia, but it happened with other application too....didn't seem at related to me, rather hardware related

ZeBond says:

I would say this is hardware-related, because from my end I have little control over the device temperature. Beem is definitely resource-intensive, but from what I've tested it (L920, L820, L800, L900), I've never seen the device really heat up.

SaucePolicy says:

Does anyone know how the live tile is supposed to work? Nothing seems to happen when I pin it to the start menu. I know you can pin stations as well but am I missing something?

ZeBond says:

There is no live tile per-se (at this point). What you want to do is pin a station to the home screen, and then simply launch it from there.

BEEM me up, Scotty. As John Cleese said in Holy Grail, "Sorry, sorry..."

teaMJPx says:

Thanks! The market did not show I had an update... Clicked your link and there it is! Thanks!

SaucePolicy says:

Umm I think there might be a problem with this new version. I was listening last night, paused like I always do before bed, woke up this morning and about a gig of free space had disappeared. I'm not recording. I tried uninstalling and the free space is not coming back. Anyone else have this problem?

I'm having that problem as well, or something similar.  It has gotten my phone down to around 500MB free and it's now locking up left and right.  I tried to uninstall Beem Plus and my phone locks up every time I do that.  I'm affraid I'm going to have to do a reset on it.   Bummer....
I'm on a HTC Trophy (Verizon) with 7.8 installed.

Not directly related to the Beem app but just as an FYI there is a fantastic DI.FM client for Windows 8 available.  There are 2 of them in the marketplace if you search for DI.FM...  The one with a dark grey background (and more ratings) is much nicer.  It has a better, more robust interface and actually pulls the track list.  It has ads but only on the main screen...  When you're in the other screens such as Now Playing there are no ads which is nice.

So if you haven't tried it, might want to check it out.

 

Ihawks says:

I've downloaded this app but am a bit weary of using it. Will it eat my data allowance?

ZeBond says:

Beem dev here. Yes, the app is known to consume quite a bit of data, so make sure you track how much you have left. Or you could try it out on a WiFi network.

fourblades says:

I really like this app though even with plus version it still tends to have an ad in music once in a while. What I did find out after sending a twitter message to di.fm is that they'll be making their own windows phone 8 app soon.
