Like that app. :)

dhruv07 says:

This app is lot better than xbox music . Wish Vlc soon releases app for wp8.1 ..! It will be free plus damn awesome
dev. says he will soon publish the app .. But no fixed date yet :)

Sameer Beri says:

waiting for vlc (:

guillams says:

Could be better if it takes advantage of the XBM APIs

SwimSwim says:

Indeed. This app is worthless if it can't play any of my music...

rodneyej says:

Yes!! XBMAPI is what all these music apps need... Are they already ready for developers to Implement?

myfyp2 says:

Is XBM API available for developers yet?

pukem0n says:

waiting for the ability to play Xbox Music titles, too


other than that, it's a great app

abhi agrawal says:

Trial version expired

schiznatch says:

Buy it. It's worth it. :D

vishera says:

want to buy, have no idea how i will pay it

Its ridiculous to pay for an app to play my music too....Why MS why are you doing this to me....

I have to agree. The app was not a wonder on WP8, but dude! how I miss that!

I prefer inbuilt fm radio now to listen songs.

cdb033 says:

I love that app, but what I truly hate is that my living images stopped working.... Oh well... It was good while it lasted.

With the Xbox Music API is possible to play my Xbox Music musics collection?? I can think in use another player if this is not possible... :S

Dos101 says:

I'm sure it will get updated with support. It was only announced a week and a half ago, so give devs time to actually test and implement it.

I don't think is possible to third party apps to reproduce xbox downloaded music.

Dos101 says:

GoMusic is able to.

SwimSwim says:

Yes, it is... Seeing as other apps already do this and Microsoft recently announced and released Xbox Music APIs for developers.

rodneyej says:

No, MS announced that they would give developers access now..

mjabbur says:

Does it have gapless playback?

thats likely an OS/firmware limitation right now

Kinez says:

Does anyone else have really long resuming screens? Because it is making it pretty much unusable for me.

cdb033 says:

Sometimes mine will do that... I would do a soft reset and it will go back to normal...

Kinez says:

Nope, still resuming like a boss. I have 525, with a 1gb of ram, so i really don't know why. Didn't see anyone else complaining about it.

mickichd says:

try musicmatic its really nice with no lag :)

Mine resumes every time, one example is WhatsApp: If I'm using it and block the screen for 1 second and turn it on again, it get stuck for 3 seconds. Same thing happens if I go to another app and get back. My Xbox music do the same thing. Horrible experience. Would a soft or hard reset resolve my issue? Sorry for my bad English.

I deleted it, it would 'look for music' every single time I opened it (which takes alot of time because I have 20 Gigs of music on my phone). Waste of money imo, using MuzikPlayer now.

Me too. Thats the factor stopping me to buy it.

Doesn't do this with 60 gigs in my 520.

Cabresau007 says:

There was an extremely easy way to fix that. All you needed to do was, when it was done finding all of your music hold the back button then swipe the app away. When you went back it should have went back to normal.

willboyce says:

I just use Xbox. Works fine for me like

Mogwaye says:

I have to say that on high end devices, Xbox music works fine. I own a 930. No lag, no bugs. Still problems with metadata but that's alright.

Yousef Kawmi says:

520/630 say hi! Me and my sister we don't have any problem either
The only problem it sometimes doesn't read Arabic, not all the time tho

TheBairdBus says:

It doesn't show that it has an update for me. Lumia 928

shaggydave says:


keifwoki says:

Will give it a go ;)

2uiam says:

How can they offer music to download for free?

AymanWP93 says:

It downloads it from Youtube of from sites like mp3skull , etc ... It's illegal but all free.

TheBairdBus says:

Music+ is good to download music but I'm not too big on its music player

shaggydave says:

What's wrong with the music player on music +. I love it! Works great on my 1520. And they just updated it today with lyrics and something else. they update it alot too. Great support! :)

TheBairdBus says:

The only music in your collection on Music+ is songs that you have downloaded using the app and most of my music isn't from the app so I prefer OneMusic or Xbox Music to listen to my music and Music+ to download new songs

gmerdude says:

This app is terrible

rvoje says:

App looks terrible!

AnilJassi123 says:

Are there any third party music apps that will allow the artist art to show on the lock screen like the original xbox music? I liked to be able to choose my own with mpatool

dwarfsize says:

Excellent app, however unusable to me until the developer uses the xbox music api so that I can make use of the xbox music subscription I've paid for. So, in the meantime, I'm content to wait minutes on end to wait for xbox music to launch ;/

Bskill says:

Awesome illustration image! Drum'n'bass ftw! :D Sticking with Xbox Music by the way..

I would like to see the album art without margins. That's the only thing preventing me from buying this app.

I prefer Xbox Music, even the 8.1 version.

Saibot 2011 says:

It's okay... Some bucks have to be fixed soon...

bad and all as build in player is, this one is awful

phasar says:

Its pathetic that WP is not capable of giving people a decent music experience of their device. Basic things like that is what makes developers and potential customers consider WP a second rate device.

DSWNG says:

I use Onemusic since beta. And I love it!

roguecroce says:

So... Is this app better (for the money) cause it's obviously not free, is it better than the native music app? We all get a basic music player, plus equaliser don't we?

Why don't this Microsoft people reach out to this Application developers to get the idea and work on it. It's all about sustaining the Microsoft User experience which was amazing and the best in WP8. Now we have to sacrifice all in WP8.1 with black screen UI is for Photo gallery, Music, Videos and Podcast app.
Why shall a person need to pay hefty for such experience even though it can be available when the developers at Microsoft can build it! Think over it.
Microsoft developers, please work on this, and retain to sustain the user experience which was excellent then any other platform!

I am now seriously fed up of all the news updates for the 8.1 OS! I mean c'mon microsoft wake up! People are waiting for the so called 'official' release! We didnt buy your phones to void our mobile's warranty to be able to use the latest OS! Its been ages since you released it for developers! Seriously, learn from android!

Mogwaye says:

"learn from android" lol?

SwimSwim says:


Yes, because we all know how reliably devices running Android receive official, stable and optimized OS updates. Bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!

dby2011 says:

Great app, but still having album art issues. All my album art is fine with Xbox music though.

Roach26 says:

XBM works fine for me. This app is terrible....

SnatchedIT says:

+820 for Monstercat dubstep! Awesome artists in there!

iamgrv says:

The Apps is Perfect. Just need forward option to work from Lock Screen. That's It. Good Work Philippe.

deathdemon89 says:

I've been facing the same problem and I can attest that a soft reset doesn't help.

Only problem I have is I bought it on my 520 and it wants to be bought again on my 920, other than that I'm satisfied.

is there a way to shuffle all my music without making a playlist containing all my music? If not, then thats the deal breaker for me, I use that feature everyday for work

Biilastuz says:

Music+ is better than this! It just updated with lyrics.
