Beats Music for Windows Phone lives on, developer Justin Angel joins Apple

Windows developer Justin Angel is joining Apple. Justin is well known in the Windows Phone developer community. More recently he worked on the Beats Music application for Windows Phone. Beats was just acquired by Apple and Justin will be joining to continue to work on the Windows Phone app.

Worried that Windows Phone support for Beats Music would be dropped after the Apple deal? No need to worry at all. Here's a tweet sent out by Justin earlier:

"Announcing: I'm joining Apple. @BeatsMusic's lead windows phone developer and former Nokia Lumia Principal Engineer is joining Apple :)"

This is great news for those Beats Music fans on Windows Phone (and Justin of course). The status of some Beats personnel has been uncertain since the deal closed. It's recently come to light that most of the engineering and creative personal behind Beats Music and Beats Electronics would be staying with Apple through the transition. While those in overhead positions like support, finance and HR wouldn't be included.

Again, huge congrats to Justin and we're stoked to continue to see support for Windows Phone from Apple.
