Didiom Allows iTunes Streaming, Wireless Music Purchase

Comments

Didiom announced today the expansion of its mobile media service public beta to include the BlackBerry Pearl today (the beta also supports the BlackBerry Curve and BlackBerry 88xx series). Didiom allows BlackBerry users to access their home computer’s iTunes library remotely and buy over 1.5 million high-quality MP3 songs while on the go. Didiom is unique in that it utilizes a bartering system, allowing users to name their own price for MP3 songs and download them to their BlackBerry or PC. In addition, throughout the beta period Didiom is implementing a cash bonus program to reward prepaid users who purchase MP3 songs.

I downloaded Didiom, which requires you to use both a client on your computer (PC only for now) and my BlackBerry Curve 8330 running OS 4.5. While I was able to listen to the songs available from their library, I couldn’t get my DRM-free iTunes music to stream (Didiom has a DRM-free licensing deal with EPM). While this may not be a big deal for most users, about 99% of my music is DRM-free, meaning the service doesn’t really work for me. Anyone else have more luck?

    Nice post, Nan. I work with Didiom and just want to clarify that our small desktop app allows you to choose folders to be monitored by our streaming server. The streaming server scans your folders for audio files in the format of WMA, MP3, WAV, AAC, M4A and Ogg Vorbis. It also scans for playlists in the format of WPL, PLS and M3U. As a matter of fact, you do not have to use iTunes to stream music from your PC to your BlackBerry.

    If you still can’t get your DRM-free music to stream, please email us at support@didiom.com, and we will help you out.

    Thanks!

    While I doubt that they have developed anything for the Blackberry you might want to look at Simplify Media (http://www.simplifymedia.com/) who allows for the same process but on the iPhone (damn you iPhone!!). Seeing as this might be a great additional push for their company you might want to contact them and see what they say with regards to BlackBerry product development. The process is very similar and could in fact benefit both RIM and Apple mobile phones.

    Let me know what you find out.
