Features not work very well

The change audio speed feature does not work very well with touch controls. It was very hard to get the speed to change. Sometimes it would change a lot and other times not at all. couldn't consistently set it how I wanted. Turned off background audio and it still didn't work. Also does not have support for chapter markers in m4v/mp4 files.

Would be great with bookmarks

I used this for an audiobook. I really like the adjustable playback speed. I'd give 5 stars if there was a way to put a bookmark and resume from the last stopping point.

Taking metro UI players a level higher

I've tried many media players on windows 8 UI but this one stands on top with its touch-based controls such as speed control. It's fast and let's you choose the color of the interface (apart from that of the Windows itself) and as expected a "URL" opening makes this a necessary app for metro style lovers. Not being able to play MKV at this stage of the development seems to be a way to avoid compatibility issues for MKV is still something difficult to deal with for programmers.

Very Clean Interface

Great app. Works fine, looks good, easy to navigate, and not a single problem after a night of use. Highly recommended.

Excellent player

I like it, not because it is the best media player, but because it is the first effort of the type, while it is more complete than native win-8 Microsoft apps. Several suggestions for its improvement are already there, so hoping few regular updates for maintenance and improvement from the developers. For the time being, Excellent and 10/10 for the developers. And a big smile to appreciate :)

Clean and simple

Best movie app so far. Clean and simple frills experience but works really well. Wish it supported .mpg though.
