Works better than webapp

This app revived my interest in my Gen1 Atom 8.1 tablet. The app works perfectly and smoothly. Two minor features that are missing are spacebar play/pause (dev is working on it---not easy). Second feature is missing auto thumbs-up playlist, but the workaround is to make another playlist with the thumbs up. You can still give thumbs up and down. Support the dev and buy this app; you'll love it!

Great app!!!!

It's just as good as the android version, IF NOT BETTER! But it is the best play music app I've ever seen! There are a few others on this store I like but this one is my favorite! Thanks Developer!

Fantastic player

I really don't have anything to complain about with this player. The only thing I would like to see is the ability to move/drag songs around in playlists and the ability to edit song metadata, though they don't detract from the experience enough to not warrant five stars.

love it

love this app but I wish there was a way for it to work with my keyboard media controls to advance or pause tracks

This is the app you are looking for

This app does everything I want it to and it does it right. Everything works. Other apps I have tried (gmusic and client for google music) don't work smoothly and don't handle playlists at all. Outcoldplayer does both. Last.fm integration is a major plus and is integrated appropriately. Caching music offline works well and is a great feature. The interface is well designed and despite minimal appearance includes all relevant information at a glance. A nice detail is that it shows the buffering percentage when you play a song. No other google play client I have seen shows this. Overall I am very pleased with this app. It is everything I have been looking for out of a windows store app. Finding good apps in the windows store is seemingly impossible but outcoldplayer is one of the best.

Outstanding Google Music player

This is by far my most-used Windows 8 app on my Surface Pro 3. It's much better than Google's native Music app, and it gets even better when combined with the Google Music unlimited subscription. Very useful, very user-friendly and well-designed. Highly recommended.

It's a good start.

Needs a LOT of UI/UX work. They need to fix the constant error popup regarding music you own that stops playing the music. Not a fan of being charged just to remove ads on a FREE service...or in the case of All Access a service we already pay for. Not worth the price charged if there aren't any added features. Needs better control layout when in thin/phone width. To skip or get to other controls you have to tap tap tap. Making the bottom section better optimized shouldn't be too much to ask so that I can skip tracks, etc...do more than pause/play.

A bit blurry on hi-dpi systems

On my surface pro, the icons on the left sidebar and the default album cover art are slightly blurry. More hidpi assets would be nice. Finally, an option to hide the icons and logos on the left sidebar would be nice, they clutter up the otherwise beautiful UI.

Great purchase

Just was is needed to help integrate the Google and Microsoft worlds together. My only hope is that they add an easier way to download entire albums, currently offline is handled by individual tracks which is a very minor gripe.

Essential for Google Music Users

Occasionally bugs will pop up keeping me from listening offline, but they are quickly fixed.
