Although we have the stellar and frequently updated Beem Plus for Windows Phone to deliver your thumping Digitally Imported (www.di.fm) electronic music, having an official app always gives a nod of true authenticity and some legitimacy to the platform.
So it’s quite exciting to see DI.fm list Windows Phone as “Coming in 2013…” under their supported apps section. Hoorah!
While no firm dates are listed, we can’t help but think that DI.fm wouldn’t have listed the app on their site if it weren’t coming sooner than later. In addition, if you look real close you can see what appears to be the first image of what the app will look like (in short, it’s nothing like Beem).
We’re quite confident that Beem Plus will stick around for awhile and we’ve always said that third-party devs can maneuver faster and often offer more in terms of features making them a consistent viable alternative. Having said that, being a DI.com premium subscriber, we’re quite excited to see yet another official app hit our platform.
For now, users can try out Beem Plus here. We highly recommend it.
Update: Digitally Imported have let us know in comments about the app's status: "We're currently testing an internal alpha version and hope to have a public beta in the coming weeks."
