Just wrong

Album art is typically wrong or missing. If an album contains a collection of artists I have to play the tracks one at a time rather than playing the entire album with a single click. Media Monkey is way better.

My "Groove" Music

The sync is on point... I love the whole thing, but my favorite feature is "Now Playing"... Thanks Microsoft to putting this together... I've been using Media Player for years... this experience has came and pass that...

The best that there is !

I was born in 1955 . I now have the opportunity to go back in time to when rock and roll was for the bad guys . Those that your patents would never allow you to go to a concert to see. The television did not have the access that you have today. So I enjoyed listening to the radio but you still only saw there faces on the album cover. Then came out the latest thing on the earth, I remember it like it was yesterday " The 8 Track player" . Well that did not last but 5 years then the 8 tracks took a dive. The next thing was a cassette player then cars only had the ability to play radio. If you wanted the player In your car you did it. I remember buying a portable cassette player that the car came with it. Then it was awhile and the electronic age came in. Now they can dress up a song and record it perfectly. I loved the 60's . While me and my sister listened to all the phobias about music. It was a blast and having a car was the only you lived for.

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.

Fast, clean, minimal

All-in-all, I really like it. It functions very well and has a very clean interface that is easy to use. Could use a few more features, but does most everything I need it to.

Love it

Great app, just add pre-maid playlists by professional. I'm not very familiar with different artists and songs.

I have had a few issues lately

Overall I am enjoying it. There are a few artists that are missing, namely Garth Brooks, which is important to me since he was a big influence growing up. Other than missing artists it is pretty similar to the rest of the options out there. Update: 2/3/16 I have dropped a star because I have had quite a few issues with streaming. It will start playing and then the song will stop. Either the song will start over or nothing will happen and it will remain silent. Downloaded songs haven't had any issues that I am aware of.

I love this app it lets me listen to all my computer's music for free, and has great quality. The layout makes everything easy to access and find. 5 Star, 10/10

Getting Better

It sometimes doesn't sync between the 3 devices I use primarily to listen to music. Overall, I've gotten used to it, and it's nice to have the one app between my phone and computing devices. The phone app did not initially see my library or playlists, but after about 3 weeks of having windows 10 mobile installed, it finally downloaded the songs and playlist. Why such a lag on those two items, I don't understand, as it saw my radio stations.
