digitally imported landscape hero

I wrote about Digitally Imported a little while back when I discovered that it supported Chromecast, even though the feature had actually been available for a few months. I’d never noticed. Anyhow, Digitally Imported — for those that don’t know — is one of the best Internet radio services around for electronic music, and has been for the better part twenty years now (well, almost).

While their Android app has been pretty good for some time now, with a recent re-design to make it a lot more user friendly, using it on a tablet has been a bit less inspirational… until now. The recent phone re-design has made it across to the tablet layout, offering a vastly improved user experience. New features in this release include:

  • App works on all Android tablets including full-size tablets like the Pixel C, Galaxy Tab devices and more.
  • Search for and save your favourites for later on
  • Like, dislike and share tracks, and view your saved favourites for later hunting (good for finding your faves on iTunes, Google Play Music, etc)
  • Get show reminders from the app for upcoming shows from your favourite artists
  • Landscape mode (shown above) let’s you listen and browse for content at the same time.

The new tablet app will be hitting the Play Store later today, but in the meantime, we’ve got some exclusive screenshots to show how the new version will look.

If you’re a tablet user and keen to try out this new version, it looks as if you won’t be disappointed. Hit the Play Store link a bit later on for the updated version.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
