Tweets by Scott Browning, marketing director for JB Hi Fi, has noted that the company has plans to release the app for its JB Hi Fi NOW streaming service “by the end of March” and has confirmed that it will allow users to download songs on their mobile devices for offline use.
The revelation was sparked when one Twitter user asked him about whether or not if the app will support offline caching. This move will put it somewhat on par with competitor Rdio – which recently entered the Australian market. Rdio lets you cache songs offline (effectively, download them to your mobile device) so you can play them where you don’t have an internet connection or don’t want to use your 3G connectivity.
While you’ll still have to wait for about two months, at least we have an update of its development.
