    Looks good. Is it possible to touch anywhere on the timeline of the track and playback will move to that point?

    Son, you just made my day. This is epic. Thanks for the effort. I have constantly complained about the absence of a decent alternative basic music player in the app store...and now I have found and answer to that.

    That's a shame. It's one feature that is sorely needed on WP.

    Good luck with your project. It does look very good and I will keep an eye on progress to see if and when more features are added.

    Any plans on integrating SkyDrive?

    You are right! I don't understand why Microsoft won't let us to scroll the playback.
    Skydrive integration is on the list of upcoming updates.

    I just tried it, i like it. Its faster than default player and i like the design.
    I would like to fast forward the song when i hold the next button though (the default player have this feature).

    Nice work :)

    Does it just play music that is already on the device? or do you have a way to get it on the Device? Can you play DRM's Music? Can you play your Zune or Windows Media Playlist on it? Can you create new playlist with it?

    In this version yes, but we're plannig to add skydrive play and other source. And yes, if you sync your playlist you can use them from the app, but, at the moment, you can not create a new one. the app has a trial version. why do not you give it a try? ;) btw, a new version is coming in 2/3 days with some of your suggestions..

    New version 2.0.3.0 is now available.

    In this version we fixed the problems reported by you and we have added a new artist page that enhances browsing and searching for a better user experience.
    The link of the store remains the same:

    Does this have Equilizer ? that is something I sorely miss in the default player. Will download this and post my impressions when I'm in range of wifi.

    Very nice Player, much better than the standard WP8-Player. Very very appreciated.

    But~
    There's only one thing I'm missing and that is the ability to search within a playlist. My usual playlist is well over two thousand songs long, so scrolling to search for a singular song is out of the question, especially when it's been randomized. But on this player the search function only opens a singular song and then sticks with that. How about a function to quickly search a song in the current playlist?
    Maybe just inside the "Current Playlist" tab, a small magnifying-lens-button at the top or bottom right for example. This would make this awesome piece of software perfect to me.

    I think this is possible. We will add it in the next release. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Hello, I'm trying out your player - thanks for working on this. Will you be adding FF/RW and scrubbing? In addition, would it be possible to sort songs according to album, after choosing "Artist"?

    The scroll feature that is in the My Tube app is good, it allows a different way to move on. I know nothing about SDKs or anything, so it may be that video is treated differently. Have a look at it.

    Thought I'd give a shot at asking. Jet Audio finally got me to ditch my standalone players with their Android app that does two things:

    1. Create playlists on the fly. Press and hold a song and choose add to playlist whether it's existing or creates a new one.Then you can go to the playlist, press and hold on songs to place them in the order you want. So easy to create.

    2. Play once feature or cuing feature. Where you're playing an album and it plays one song and stops. The Jet Audio app will advance tracks but not play the track until you hit Play again. Good for audio books and for group fitness instructors and such. Just plays a track, stops and waits for you to hit play to play the next track. The JA app will actually advance to the next song but not play it. Their players along with Creative's players have that "play once" feature but don't advance to the next track. You have to FF then hit play.

    So what are the odds of either feature becoming reality?

    Thanks.

    Now songs are sorted by album in the Artist View. And we are looking into scrubbing. FF/RW is not possible at the moment. We need to wait for Microsoft to enable it in the new sdk.

    At the moment it's impossible to us to create or edit playlist. We need a new SDK from Microsoft.
    I think we could add your second suggestion, but probably it is mandatory that the app is in the foreground for it to work.

    So playlist creation and editing is a Microsoft limitation? That's just ridiculous at this stage of the game on their part.

    For me, I use the play once feature while teaching fitness classes. Song ends, stretch, change weights, start the next song. So it'd definitely be in the foreground.

    I'm just amazed Microsoft has limited the playlist capability like that this far into it. I hardly use Media Monkey anymore for playlists. Would love to just use the Lumia for music and the Adidas MyCoach, but alas, convergence is still being stifled. Thanks MS, and thank you for putting the effort in.

    Hi,

    I really enjoy this app. I have only one small problem. I seems that The National (with the same meta data) is displayed two times in the artist list. Anyone an idea to solve this?
