Stitcher Radio still on its way to Windows Phone as company looks to hire dev

The last time we reported on Stitcher Radio was literally one year ago. The popular online radio streaming service, popular for podcasts and music fans alike, was looking to have an app for Windows Phone in “early 2012”.

Obviously, that did not happen. And truth be told, we forgot that it even existed until an email dropped in our inbox today, noting that the company is looking to hire a Windows Phone dev for a mobile app, specifically for Windows Phone 8.

From their jobs site, we can see the listing looking for the dev for our mobile OS, though it is unclear if this would be their first hire or merely adding to what we would hope to be a team. Our guess? This is the first.

We’re going to guess that Stitcher got cold feet on Windows Phone 7.x because of both market share and the more limited audio streaming capabilities present, including those affecting the arrival of Audible. It’s no secret that Windows Phone 8 opens a few more doors for developers and a lot more flexibility for streaming protocols, meaning Stitcher may be finally taking a second look.

The bad news should be obvious though. While it’s great to see popular brands jumping on Windows Phone 8, seeing as the company is looking to hire a developer now means we probably won’t see this app until late spring, maybe even summer. We’d hope it could come sooner but some of these companies move quite slow, especially if Microsoft or Nokia aren’t helping them out.

Hopefully though it won’t be another year before we write about Stitcher.

Get Jay B. and the wpcentral team together.

You beat me to it. Lol.

Coding a basic radio app shouldn't take till April. Even a really basic app fast (which gets updated regularly) is better than complete app late.

Pyrobri says:

Hmm April would have been pretty good seeing as it's now September...

Shobiz says:

Get the guy who made the WP Central app.

Great idea as long as he doesn't include all of the cheesy animations in the wpcentral app.

Hey! I like 'em.

Well considering that that since Feb 2011 they said it was coming soon I have tweets where they replied to me fuck em I don't even use the website anymore

Nakazul says:

Great news, but starting to hire now!? We will se this app next autumn :-/

Bkr11 says:

One of the few apps I use regularly on my Android that I would miss once I can move to WP. Glad to hear this is still on the way.

CylonJason says:

My podcast prayers would be mostly answered with the Stitcher app, especially since they've neutered the automatic updating of podcasts as in WP7 and unless you're in the blessed States, there's no way to get podcasts on your phone and keep them updated natively ie no podcast support in the Marketplace outside the US.
