Dope music player

Dope music player, best one I've found in the store, only one that displays the full artwork, only thing that would make this better would be a audio visual

Only plays music

This is a simple music player. Nothing close to useful except that. Add songs to playlists one at a time, can't customize where your music folders are.

No instructions!

Can't figure out how to open media on external drives on my Surface 2--micro card slot or USB port. Only seems to look for media in standard Surface set-up (on the hard drive). My tablet doesn't have enough capacity to put lots of music & videos on the hard drive. Info, please! 1 star--so far--for lack of instruction. Don't know how much I might like it if I can get it to access my files.

The app is very well-organized and simple, but there are many overlooked features: - There's no way to select all files or a range of files when opening media. - No in-app volume control except in Now playing. - Does not load m3u or m3u8 playlists. - There should be away to return home easily. Here I have to back many times.

The app allows you to create multiple playlists but in the end all playlists created after the first one have tracks from the first playlist and none from the ones you specified to be included in that particular playlist.

Almost well designed app

Just fix the bugs and add .MKV support, and it's by far the best media player (I would give it 5 stars and buy!) The fact that videos keep playing in the background when the tablet is in standby makes it the best for music videos! 3 stars is because there's no way to see the "now playing" list

Surface Pro 2 - Windows 8.1

I initially chose this App over Windows Media Player for it's UI and player-features. Unfortunately, over the course of just a couple of weeks, the inconsistencies of its stability outweighed the overall enjoyment of using it. Now it only freezes on its title screen when trying to open - which can double as an unattractive screen saver I suppose? Sometimes, however, if I'm lucky it'll actually surprise me and do something useful and shut itself off. Meh.

Beats the default apps!

Way more stable than the default Music and Video apps that come with Windows, which are really slow in comparison. This app is quick and smooth on my Surface, immediately detects when I add new media to my Library folders, and reads the metadata out of the file (rather than the cloud, which the default apps try to do). The only thing that could use a bit of work is playlist support - once you've got items in the "Now playing" list, it's hard to add more without stopping playback.

great but still has some bugs. . .

1. When adding an awful lot of music in a playlist, the app gets stuck in the "adding to playlist" screen, (I let the app run for 7 hours to add 2k music files in a single playlist and nothing happened) 2. Notification doesn't show when the next song in the list is played automatically by the player 3. When the album art of a music file is too large (exceeds 1k x 1k resolution) the app kinda lags
