I pd for this when it first came out, still luv it

Almost impossible to find this app any longer due to Microsoft naming their music service Groove as well. Hopefully something is being done about this b/c I'd hate to see this app go away due to lack of interest. Anyway..This ap is great way of rediscovering your old music. Good at picking similar songs within genres and making nice playlists. The now playing screen is still bland. That is the one thing that the XBOX music player does well. Moving / changing artist backdrop on the now playing screen look great on XBOX. But still find myself using groove more often unless I'm playing music in my main AV room with a 54" plasma screen. Burn in sux ... ;-)

It's so beautiful but it's not showing the better together section and it won't play groovy mix, please fix this! I just wish I could delete songs and update album information. Nevertheless it's amazing, good playback and layout

nice app

it creates playlists for my different music genres. I also like the surprise bit of the app. its downside however is that it leaves some songs out and cannot get them to play. or you cannot even find them in the app

Best option I have found

Xbox music the default metro music player that windows comes with and it is pretty bad. I have been searching for a better music player for my personal library and this is the best one I have come across. There are a few things that I would like to see added. -Search function -Album artwork in the mini-player that pops up changing volume -Ability to browse for new album artwork if Groove is unable to add Other than that, I would say this app is the best out there, but hopefully they will keep improving on it and add some more features.

Great ! but room for imrpovement

+Lyrics support + album art on the mini player ( the one that appears when you change the volume ) + Artist art on the now playing screen similar to Xbox music( dynamic) Keep up the good work :)

Adding songs to playlists

The app's great in the way it actually manages the library and create random playlists, but I cant add music to playlists and create my own and I think this needs be fixed. Still pretty good though.

Better than stock music, with one gripe

It is better than stock music in almost all regards except one thing: I really wish I could edit track information from within the app and add album art from my computer and such. Namely because I am artist and one of my albums isn't on sale yet, so I'd like to add artist info and my pre-release artwork so it looks more "legit." I also have some artists who are generic like me and don't have art or artist information, so I'd like to add that for them, too.

One problem, Still FIVE STARS

So far the best free music playing app. Its eye candy, easy, fun and a delight. The problem I am having a couple of albums are not grouped together. I checked with other apps, they show they have the same album name, part of a Compilations. Anyway I still love this app. I hope they make a App Size Bigger then Wide. It showed that I had a few artist with different punctuations so I fixed that real quick. No other app/program made it easy for me to notice. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this app!

Excellent music player!!!

I was looking for a music player since the default xbox music its decent, but had a problem loading artists art and covers... well, i'm glad i did because this is soo much better... I like the interface a lot better, i like the smart dj like functionality, it does remember you about tracks you haven't listen for a while... it works with songs in your HDD and on Onedrive (even if you haven't download it for offline in the onedrive app). The only think i think it really needs is a way to long press a song to add to the now playing playlist... it really does need that... also a random button
