Pro provides a new level of flexibility and control over personal audio collections. New mobile app is available for download from the Didiom website, BlackBerry App World, and Microsoft’s Windows Marketplace for Mobile.
Didiom today announced the launch of Didiom Pro, a premium service that makes media streaming from personal computers to mobile phones even faster and simpler. Didiom Pro, the newest version of the Didiom service, offers a whole new set of mobile and desktop applications and allows users to stream any audio file from their home computer to their phone ¯ from Lady GaGa albums to ESPN podcasts to Stephen King audiobooks. The new service also enables users to download their favorite tracks from their home computer to their phone wirelessly for offline listening.
With advanced placeshifting functionality, Didiom Pro scans your personal computer for audio files and playlists and makes them available in seconds for wireless streaming and downloading to compatible mobile phones. The service is available worldwide for select BlackBerry smartphones and Windows phones from Samsung, LG, Sony Ericsson, Toshiba, Acer, and HTC.
“Millions of songs and podcasts are downloaded to personal computers every day. Didiom Pro is the easiest and most secure way to stream them – on demand or for local storage – directly to mobile devices over 3G and Wi-Fi networks,” said Ran Assaf, Didiom’s founder and CEO. “Not so long ago, it took awkward data cables, memory cards, and hours of synchronization time to have your entire iTunes library in the palm of your hands. Now, it takes just one simple app –– Didiom Pro.”
“The PC is a central repository of digital media for consumers, but the inconveniences associated with accessing PC-based files have inhibited consumer usage of the mobile phone for media consumption,” said Susan Kevorkian, Program Director for Mobile Media and Entertainment at market research firm IDC. “Services like Didiom Pro, which simplify and accelerate audio file transfer from the PC to the mobile phone, help to remove those barriers and make the phone even more relevant for enjoying music and other types of audio content.”
