Online music chaps 7digital already offer an app for Android and BlackBerry peeps, and the London-based boys have announced that they’ll soon be introducing an app for Windows Phone 7 users.
Good news for music fans, as 7digital offers over 17 million tracks to stream or download. Presumably that includes the entire Jason Donovan back catalogue.
As witnessed in the Android and BlackBerry apps, the 7digital app for Windows Phone 7 will adopt a neat trick whereby it downloads a compressed version of tracks over your cellular connection in order to reduce the strain on your data plan. Connect to Wi-Fi, and they’ll leap to 320kbps.
Ben Drury, co-founder and CEO of 7digital, roared: “We’re continuing to see demand from customers for access to their music on all their devices, regardless of the manufacturer or operating system.
“With the launch of our Windows Phone app, we’re continuing to work towards the realisation of our vision to provide anytime anywhere access to music for our customers.
“7digital is ‘platform agnostic’ and by working closely with Microsoft on its Windows devices we are closer to our goal of being able to give our customers access to their entire music collection on their devices any time they want to access it.”
The traditional 7digital cloud locker will make the transition too. Essentially, you can sign into your account via BlackBerry OS, Android or Windows Phone 7 – doesn’t matter which – and access all your music goodness.
A quick gander at the 7digital site reveals it’s also working on an iOS app. Nice.
