The last time we reported on Stitcher Radio was literally one year ago. The popular online radio streaming service, popular for podcasts and music fans alike, was looking to have an app for Windows Phone in “early 2012”.
Obviously, that did not happen. And truth be told, we forgot that it even existed until an email dropped in our inbox today, noting that the company is looking to hire a Windows Phone dev for a mobile app, specifically for Windows Phone 8.
From their jobs site, we can see the listing looking for the dev for our mobile OS, though it is unclear if this would be their first hire or merely adding to what we would hope to be a team. Our guess? This is the first.
We’re going to guess that Stitcher got cold feet on Windows Phone 7.x because of both market share and the more limited audio streaming capabilities present, including those affecting the arrival of Audible. It’s no secret that Windows Phone 8 opens a few more doors for developers and a lot more flexibility for streaming protocols, meaning Stitcher may be finally taking a second look.
The bad news should be obvious though. While it’s great to see popular brands jumping on Windows Phone 8, seeing as the company is looking to hire a developer now means we probably won’t see this app until late spring, maybe even summer. We’d hope it could come sooner but some of these companies move quite slow, especially if Microsoft or Nokia aren’t helping them out.
Hopefully though it won’t be another year before we write about Stitcher.
