Doesn't do anything

MSFT, you deprecated a good app and replaced it with a non-functional one. Bring back the old app. Can't sync playlists and music with ease anymore.

Why no hardwire connection ?

I use to have the Verizon Droid installer/driver on Windows 8.1, now I have to use this app to "sync" content like photos, never mind I can't move my music files from notebook to phone. This is such a step backwards. Let's get away from "apps" and back to programs that actually do things. One last thing why do I have jpg files in 5 different places, and can't marry them to one program or app, or whatever it's supposed to be ?

PLEASE FIX THE MUSIC DEAL

Please just bring back the Zune transfer interface and layout. Why are you guys doing this? Seriously my Zune software was so EASY to use. I know there were probs but from a standpoint of transfering music it was the best. You could set it up not to duplicate and where to put the file and then all you had to do was plug it in. AND it had a three column search from left to right of artist/album/song. You could scroll click an artist and it would show the albums. Click the album and the right column showed the songs. There was NO BACK AND FORTH. Making playlists was a dream. Drag and Drop. Please Microsoft I'm busy and have three kids - this should not be a sit down and think about it task.

Doesn't sync music from Groove to Windows Phone 8.1

I have been trying for 2 days to copy music playlists from the Win 10 Groove App to my Windows phone 8.1. Doesn't work. even tried signing up on the XBOX Music subscription because it said I can sync if I have that, however, that was not correct either. Appears the Groove App is not compatible with Windows Phone 8.1 - even though they are both newer Microsoft products. Clearly they really messed up on this & of course I can't use the Zune desktop software to sync with Windows Phone 8.1, only 8.0 & below apparently.

Bring back dedicated software for syncing WP!!

This app just lists some instructions! Completely pointless. It's telling you to just use File Explorer for music, or use OneDrive. What a downgrade from the Zune Desktop software a few years ago! That worked brilliantly! Windows needs a dedicated desktop app to manage music, photos, and videos. I use OneDrive a lot, actually. Works great. However, I own a lot of music, and don't want to pay yearly for extra storage to manage music I already own!! Using File Explorer takes several hours if it works!

The old one was better

the earlier app used to show exactly whats on the phone and lets choose what you want to save on PC. also had find you phone feature for Windows phone. THis one launches phot import app and imports photos based on time line. however I found out that it messed up the timeline and all my new and old pictures are now in the same folder. Also does not offer the option to delete the pictures and videos from the phone, for that you have to use explorer. its a mess. If I have to use explore then why do I need this app for. its just a big advertisement for windows 10 and is not as useful as the previous app.

Doesn't do anything

This app only shows its features. It doesn't really do anything. It's garbage. I used to use the windows phone desktop app and I could easily sync and update my playlists by just plugging it in. I have decided to use Windows Media Player to update my playlists now.

I don't get it.

This app should let me sync my music and pictures to my phone instead it tells me to drag and drop files. All I want to do is sync my playlists to my phone.

Windows Phone syncing?

I got 5 Windows Phones, this great app is telling me to use the Photos app to sync. Which is awesome, except that it creates folders based on MONTH, not on DEVICE. I now got my 5 devices' pictures all in great month-seperated folders. Total mess. Please return the sync method based on device instead of months.

Does this app do anything productive for Windows Phone

It really doesn't serve much of a purpose for Windows Phone users other than stating that your phone is compatible with Windows. At this point, I'm challenging that notion since I cannot find a way to successfully sync my local music library with my phone and copying the files directly using explorer doesn't work well at all. I can share my network with my friends easily enough though!!!!
