The app was demonstrated way back in October at Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 launch but it sure took a while to get here. The music streaming service is ad-free on WP8 for the first year, which should come as great news for fans of the service, and the free app has live tiles in all three sizes, which displays the currently playing song and album art.
Available for free, for all Windows Phone 8 devices.
