Works well

Easy to move music from other sources like iTunes and other downloading services, easy and enjoyable to use. No dislikes yet from this guy!

Alright app that could use a few improvements.

I really like that it has a simple and intuitive UI that is snappy on all sorts of hardware and sizes of music libraries. What I don't like: I wish there was a way that I could rate songs from within the app and have a shuffle mode that could be set to prioritize those songs. I'm using this on a Surface 3 and there's occasional audio crackling on music playing through the headphones with the screen off. It's pretty off putting.

Mostly really good

I really like the interface; I think the app looks great. I would give it 5 stars except every once in awhile after it plays a song it will not automatically move on to the next one. It doesn't happen all of the time but it is frustrating when it happens. Other than that, I love it. Especially the Radio feature!

This app is a much needed improvement

Great intuitive interface, play songs from the cloud is perfect. Could have a more "random" shuffle. It seems that large playlists have many songs that don't quite make it to the top of the play list.

Limited control

I like that the app works in both mode, tablet and laptop. Also, easy to change music when on other apps. However, it is very inconvenient when adding music or editing music. Very low control within the app. the design and trial adverts divert from the main control panel and makes it difficult and annoying to use. You can't drag'n'drop any music as it will not add them to playlist. Overall, very disappointed about the app. Hope to see massive changes to this music player - a nice combination of conventional mp3 player and online player such as Spotify would make it the perfect app.

Hangs with the best. Use the radio function with your favorite artist nets you some really fun and intuitive playlist. I like it a lot. Thanks Microsoft, your becoming cool again. :)

Good, but can be better

Sometimes I can't open any song, I have to close and open the app for it to work, other than that it's pretty good. However I wouldn't mind to have the option to have a music visualizer, that would be really cool, also an equalizer wouldn't be bad either.

Give me more

I like the music options but would like the onscreen options to be more intuitive. I also want to be able to download music to my phone easier to manage.
