It would be easy for HTC to keep Beast Audio, the company they invested $300 million into and gained majority ownership of in the process, all to themselves. Aside from some API tools for their lineup of devices featuring Beats integration, what more could we expect? How about a complete developer API? That is exactly what will happen, as HTC plans to “allow third-party developers to harness the potential of Beats Audio.” There is no specific information on when the API could go live and what sort of access it will grant app makers, but it’s great news for any music love looking to get the most out of their smartphone. Now if only they could open-source Dr. Dre’s flow.
