Pretty good

It has quite a few features! The only suggestion is to update the app more frequently. Besides that, best player out there.

This app is exactly what i looking for from a music player. Could you please add other features like equalizers and play counts/most played playlist in the next update? Thank you for your contribution to the Windows platform.

Add Equalizer

I think it'll be good to add equalizer option to the app, this is a most important feature for anyone like to listen music 🎶

Probably the best for windows phone

I really like the minimalistic feel, the response and the sound. If I weren't poor and without credit card. I will definitely buy it.

Good, basic player like the ones on the Pureview 808, and the N8.




Platform: Mobile

Good customizable player

But not for playing music. Player very often shows, that it's playing (pause button is visible), but it isn't and it's unable to start play until app is restarted. Switching between songs also takes too much time, sometimes up to 5 seconds. Same delay when play/pause is pressed. For Lumia 950XL it is unusable for playing music.

Too many bugs, lags, songs don't always play properly..

Uninstalling because when I synced my songs (2750 ish songs) only 2546 showed up. Synced multiple times and troubleshot but it kept coming up several songs shy. The app is difficult to navigate, songs skip like scratched cd's, and it's ridiculously slow and lagging. The features could be much easier to figure out and it should definitely AUTOMATICALLY pull up EVERY song in your prior catalog. Very disappointed and regret paying the fee to unlock the full version. Was truly hoping it was the player that it claimed to be. I highly recommend not getting this app till it has all the bugs ironed out.
