Best XBMC App For Windows 8?

I've been a long-time user of 7Illusion's XBMC app, for Windows Phone. Having used multiple XBMC apps, for Windows 8, I can say that this is the only one that I don't have a serious issue with. All the other apps, that I tested, show less music artists than I have (immediately visible in the a group). A couple features that I would like to see are the ability to play all songs in random (party mode, I think it's called) and to utilize the built-in "top" features (top 100 and top albums). It would also be nice to be able to turn shuffle on/off during the playback.

By far the best

I've tried every XBMC app for windows 8 and this is by far the best all around. To me the most important piece is the remote and this one works flawlessly. The library views are smooth and fast. Thank you developer!!

Excellent app

I own almost all the xbmc remote apps for windows 8. This is by far the best with semi-local playback (seems to only be currently supported metro supported video as in mp4). The only actual negative is lack of semantic zoom like xbmc boss. Ignore the negative reviews, these are previous to the updates that have fixed stability problems

pretty good app

It is a decently writing app, with a nice interface (both docked and full screen), and it functions well too. Buggy and crashy. Constantly force closing.

No addon support like yatze on android

No addon support like yatze on android. Not worth paying for something you can get for free.

some things don't work

I am not sure what the requirements are for playing locally but all of my videos are grayed out. The other thing that doesn't work for me are the arrow keys on the remote so the only way I can pick something to watch is by browsing to it on my tablet then pushing play. I love the layout of the app. I have your app for my windows phone and it works perfectly, I hope this app improves I like it so far

Best remote functionality of any of them

Ignore the low reviews, this has a great interface and the best remote control portion of all the xbmc apps for RT

Consistent crash on boot

I haven't been able to get the app to work consistently with either Eden (v11) or Frodo (v12). The few times I've made it past the splash screen, I end up crashing a few seconds later.

Very buggy app

This app constantly crashes when browsing movie library. It does have a very nice layout
