Music DJ

It's not letting me purchase or play my music

Wonderfully Straightforward . . . Until

Update to the update: the next day after adding the album I mentioned below, the rest of my collection finally showed up again. No clue why, but I think it would help tremendously if MusicDJ would give you some sign that a re-sync is in process. Some more good things I've discovered about MusicDJ (ignoring the craziness about how it handles updating the collection): (1) Recognizes mp3 tag edits after the original sync, whereas Media Monkey for example doesn't and (2) Continues playing successive tracks on an album/playlist even when you turn the screen off, unlike the Xbox Music app. Update: added an album to my collection and now that album is the only one MusicDJ sees. Fail. Original: I've tried every music player in the store I could find. MusicDJ is the only one that covers all the bases for me. The search language described on the website is powerful and simple.

Awesome but needs for this app to be the default

Make skins, make it so we can see/preview long titles in the search bar's results. Make it that this opens up when I select a music from my desktop (default program).Lastly, out of all the ones I tried, this is the one with the fewest problems. It crashes when I put too many musics in a playlist I like no ads, free and simple💎. But: please fix the following glicth- when i open an album, i cant select play all and then save playlist, Make it so we can erase playlists

Play all option??

A lovely simplistic interface, very simple to use and it so far it hasn't been crashing unlike 90% of the horrendously windows apps I use. But I find it really odd that there isn't an option to just play all my music - I have thousands of songs and making a playlist out of all these sometimes is just a bother and I only want to shuffle my entire library in the background on a Friday evening spent with family or friends. Please add this simple function and it'll be perfect!

Almost there.

I gave it 5 instead of 4 stars because its just that good right from the app store. Surely some additions can be made here, and there like others noted but this is a great replacement for the Music app provided with Win8 and RT.

Best, so far

I tried a variety of music apps from the Microsoft store to run on my new Surface 2, not really liking the Xbox version. This is best so far, imp. It's fast and easily found my many albums on the SD card. My only complaint is that it doesn't show my album covers, also on the SD card as jpegs. I paid the $1.50 to get rid of the ads on the bottom of the screen.

What is this, 1993?

Doesn't support FLAC - you know the completely free to use and implement audio format that's been the most popular lossless audio format for more than a decade. So that's great. It doesn't maintain a library of your audio files, so it has to rescan your database each launch, which is great, because, it's like 1993 and I totally only have like 30 MP3's on my computer.

Has ads, apparently

This didn't have ads for me for a long time, and I guess the last update put them back. That's a bummer - I hate in-app ads. I'd even be willing to pay $1.99 to get an ad-free version of this app, because it's the only decent music app I've found so far.

One of the best music players in the store

This is one of the best music players in the store, if not the best. It thankfully doesn't complicate the music player experience with trying to get online and getting unnecessary info. Its advanced search capability is awesome and the drag and drop method of creating a playlist is pretty cool too. Would like to see 2 new features added: play all and add search result to playlist.

Best music player for Windows RT

Without a doubt, Music DJ is the best music for Windows RT. Frustrated with the slow, unwieldy built-in Music app for WinRT, I've been searching for an alternative, and Music DJ is it. Featuring a simple interface and all of the basic functionality (save an EQ), Music DJ does its job well. While ad-supported by default, the extra $1.50 or so to fully unlock this app is a small price to pay. To conclude, if you want a seamless music playback experience on WinRT, Music DJ is the app for you.
