Digitally Imported is one of the biggest (and oldest) names in streaming Internet radio. While Digitally Imported focused purely on all the genres within electronic dance music, they have websites for other genres like jazz, rock and general listening. Those sister channels are JAZZRADIO.com, ROCKRADIO.com, SKY.FM and Fresca Radio. A few of those have apps in the Windows Phone Store, but today we’re looking at the newest –ROCKRADIO.com!

Although DI.FM (Digitally Imported) now has an official app for Windows Phone, we shouldn’t forget the fantastic Beem Plus from developer Den Delimarsky. The official DI.FM app has some great features, but Beem Plus brings SkyDrive recording, Last.FM scrobbling, integration with the Xbox and Nokia Music stores and the ability to copy the track name.

Now, version 2.2 has landed in the Store and it take along with it two new features: Sleep Timer and a notification center (which actually came in version 2.1).

We’ve been boasting about Digitally Imported (www.di.fm) for quite some time on this site, specifically with the unofficial app Beem, which is so good we can’t refuse it. Earlier this summer, Digitally Imported aka DI.FM, started up their Windows Phone app beta program, which concluded a little over a week ago.

The result? The official, free and fantastic app is now live in the Store for all Windows Phone 7.x and 8 users.

There are more music services than you can shake a stick at. On Windows Phone you have apps for all the major music platforms. We’ve got Xbox Music, Spotify, Pandora, Vevo, Soundcloud, and more. Sure, some of those might be a third party apps, but they exist and are pretty good. Digitally Imported is bringing an official app soon, but we’ve been pretty lucky with Beem as a third party offering. Development isn’t slowing down though, the app just picked up a new update. Let’s check it out.

We announced a few weeks ago that the popular electronic music streaming site Digitally Imported (www.di.fm) was beta testing their official app for Windows Phone. Tonight, we figured we show you the current status of the beta and how it all works.

Digitally Imported is a free music streaming site, though users can opt for a paid “Premium” experience like on Pandora. That feature enables 256kbps streaming with no ads and that membership level is reflected in the app.

We’ve been getting a solid stream of official apps the past half year. And those few apps that haven’t made the jump yet usually see solid alternatives within the development community of Windows Phone. But it is still important for the platform for official apps to keep joining. We’ve told you that Digitally Imported was working on a Windows Phone app. So you should go sign up for the beta.

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!

If you’re a fan of ‘addictive’ electronic music, odds are you use or have used the Digitally Imported website at one point or another. Digitally Imported (di.fm) started out in 1999 and has been a big source of electronic music for over a decade – amassing a loyal set of users and fans. While there isn’t an official app for Windows Phone, we’ve had two killer ones: Beem and Beem Plus, both from developer wunderkind Den Delimarsky.

Beem is being put out to pasture, but the good news is that Beem Plus (which just got an update) is free for the entire month of February. Why the change though?

Back in early April we reported on the new streaming music app Beem by Windows Phone Development MVP Den Delimarsky. The app taps into Digitally Imported (www.di.fm), the popular electronic dance music site which features everything from Techno to Trance to Chillout to Progressive making it quite the value. What's more, both the service and app are completely free and the app doesn't even have any ads. Did we mention it's pretty gorgeous too?

Version 1.1 just hit the Marketplace with a bunch of welcomed new features, some of which are extremely impressive:

  • A bug fix that now allows you to re-pin a tile even if it disappears (apparently an OS bug, but there is now a workaround).
  • UI tweaks.
  • Ability to search for played songs in the Zune Marketplace.
  • Ability to record the stream and store it locally for playback (consider this a DVR implementation for DI.FM).
  • Ability to set short recorded music as a ringtone.
  • There is now a "Now Playing” option that allows users to easily jump to the currently playing station.
  • Added the ability to clear the music player (in case you don’t want to see the last played content even though it is paused).

The ability to look the song up in Zune was something we asked for--after all, we want to make use of that Zune Pass--so it's great to see it here. The new feature works flawlessly allowing us to search for the song/artist that's currently playing and then download to our phone directly (something that's very awesome over AT&T's LTE).

But the ability to locally record whatever is playing is the most impressive. The music is saved within the app for later offline playback and is really quite useful. Not only does it record but it shows you how much space in KB it's taking up in real-time. Very cool stuff.

Finally, the rest of the changes are just icing on the cake. The new Tile layout of the stations is quite eye-catching and the app is a must-have for us as we're big fans of downtempo for our background tunes. If Beem sounds like something up your alley then you can grab it right here in the Windows Phone Marketplace (or check out Den's page on the update). The app is on our must-have list for a reason!

Beem is a Digitally Imported client that allows you to stream various EDM radio stations to your Windows Phone. In a nutshell, Beem is a music app that allows you to stream and enjoy various electronic dance music stations from your Windows Phone.

Beem takes advantage of the Windows Phone panoramic layout with pages to display the available stations and your favorite channels. Beem currently streams about forty different dance music stations ranging from Chiptunes (videogame music) to Hardstyle (head banging tunes).

Tap and hold an individual station and a pop up menu will appear with options to pin the station to your Start Screen or add the station to the Favorites Page.  The music may not appeal to everyone but some of the stations aren't too shabby.  If you like music options for your Windows Phone, Beem is worth looking into.

Beem is a free app and you can grab it here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.
