Digitally Imported may be working on an official Windows Phone app, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a place for high-quality alternatives from third-parties. Beem is one of those high-quality apps that isn’t quite official, but does the job of what an official app or service would with aplomb. Both versions of Beem for Windows Phone are now free.
There’s nothing quite like the sweet price of free. While a lot of times you get what you pay for, software is one of those weird areas where developers like Den Delimarsky buck that notion. His apps, Beem Plus (Digitally Imported client) and Beem for SKY.FM, are both going to be free from here till forever on Windows Phone. And he isn’t going to stop supporting them.
After open sourcing the code for Beem, Den is going to focus on updating both his Digitally Imported and SKY.FM applications that are now free. What’s on the road map for these two applications? Some pretty cool features that we can’t wait to see implemented. Here are just some features you’ll be getting in future updates for the apps:
- NFC Sharing
- Cross device sharing via Wi-Fi
- Better file management for recordings
We can’t recommend these apps enough if you’re into music. Now that they’re free there’s absolutely no reason not to have them on your Windows Phone 7.x or 8 device. Grab Beem Plus (Digitally Imported) here in the Store or go here for the SKY.FM variant. You can also use the QR codes below (blue for DI and red for SKY.FM). Or if you’re in our Windows Phone Central app reading this, just swipe to the right.
