British digital music firm 7digital says it now has more than 2m active users on mobile devices, with 800k people having installed its Android app so far, along with users on BlackBerry, iOS and its HTML5 mobile website. The milestones come as 7digital announces an updated version of the Android app, which has swipe-based navigation, more recommendations and uses the Beam NFC feature from Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The latter means users can tap their phones together to share playlists of 30-second track previews. Meanwhile, a 7digital Windows Phone app is on the way too. “We’re seeing great momentum on mobile devices and updating our existing apps, and launching on the Windows Phone platform will ensure this continues,” says CEO Ben Drury. “With Google buying Motorola and Amazon focused on the Kindle Fire device, we’re the only truly agnostic, independent and cross-platform music download service.”
