Ampya, a music streaming service in Germany owned by the TV channel Pro7/Sat1, has just confirmed on Twitter they are planning a Windows Phone app. With about 20,000,000 songs and 57,000 music videos it is not a service to ignore.
The service already has apps for iOS and Android and again it is nice to see more and more official apps coming to Windows Phone. Sure, developer like Rudy Huyn make great 3rd party apps for several services, but official things are something different and great to have on board.
I am curious about when the app will be published and how good it will be; unfortunately not all official apps on Windows Phone are very high quality. Especially music streaming services are not Windows Phone’s strength with Spotify lagging on some important functions, the Xbox Music pass app being buggy and the integrated music player, which has Xbox Music integrated, also lagging some basic features (e.g. editing playlists or adding songs to the sync library).
Nokia Mix Radio seems to be the only international music streaming service with a really usable application.
After I asked again, Ampya told me they do not have a release date so far. Still, it is good to know it is coming. We will keep you informed on this.
