    Remember all the features you wished your default music player would have? Well, now they are here on Overture Music Player.
    You can search through your music, make and save custom playlists, tap and hold anything too see the full song title (or album title or artist name), consolidate albums with the same name (no more will there be 10 copies of the same album name with different artists). You can easily navigate through your albums and artists and genres as they are all linked.

    also, if you have any suggestions or ideas, i will be more than happy to implement them into a later version of the app

    Just downloaded and bought it. Pretty nice, and I get why you did the playlist thing. Sucks it has to work that way.

    Anyhow, here's my 2 feedback points, both design wise.

    Remove the color from the ... at the bottom. Make the color just clear.

    On the Song Queue box remove the background again, and space the songs slightly closer. Otherwise, pretty good start. Enjoy the 70 cents;)

    Does this app recognize Volume Gain tags, and adjust volume? I've been waiting for an app that does this since my Treo.

    sadly, it does not currently do that. the volume gain tags can not be accessed through the song normally. as soon as I can solve this issue, I will put it in

    Gapless playback? Something I've sorely missed since moving to Windows Phone! Or is that something that is dependant on the OS? Thanks!

    I'm fixing to buy this app. The fact that you can be contacted on this forum is also relieving. Thank you.

    Edit: Well this is awkward, it crashes while loading on my 928 everytime.

    @peteriusa, yes the songs do play one after another and will sound like it as long as your songs dont have silence in the begining or end of it.
    @jaybotics, darn :(
    @Dk92, do you happen to have any songs that start with a non-english character? it might crash the app while its trying to sort it alphabetically

    Ah, I actually do. I'll sort that out and then get back to you.

    It's still crashing exactly after displaying "Resuming". I deleted the few tracks that had beginning letters that weren't English.

    hm... that's a really odd problem. try changing everything with a nonenglish character. hopefully that will work, and i will work on supporting different languages

    Would you be able to make the album artwork dominate the screen? Like on iOS? I really love that style, btw I like the search bar, but would you be able to just have it as a charm instead?
    07-22-2013 09:38 AM
  14. Clark Zhang's Avatar
    mm yes that is very classy. and by charm do you mean its normally hidden and will pop up?
    the reason i have the searchbar always there is just for when you wanna quickly search something without wait.

    Any future plans to add more formats? 95% of my music collection is in flac format. I do like the layout though.

    hey
    @dream master yes, that is next on the list for improvements (the move up and down), animated tile will be nice if i have enough time to make it
    @shayne not currently. it can only support what the os can natively do sadly :(.

    Can you make it so when we want to forward our song, let's say a minute, we have a dot and we move it instead of holding the skip button? Because Xbox Music doesn't have that yet, but I would love for it to have it.

    Have you considered adding a trial to your app? (either ad based or time limited), making your app as accessible as possible may turn on into some sales (and testing gapless audio it's a real killer!).

    Another request for a trial. A 3 day trial should be good enough trying the app. Reason is that I've already bought countless music related apps.

    Hi Clark,

    First off, thanks for making a music player for WP8 - I've always been dissatisfied with the built-in one, and it's great to see development happening on alternatives - it was well worth a buck to see what's available, no buyer's remorse here.

    However (there had to be a "however," right?) - am I missing something, or is there no way to listen to an album in its original sequence? (When I open an album, it lists the tracks alphabetically, not in their original sequence). And if that's the case, what does "gapless" actually mean? If I can't listen to two sequential tracks from a gapless album sequentially, then the transition between them doesn't exist, so it literally *can't* be gapless or non-gapless.

    By luck, the album that I was just listening to - _In the Aeroplane Over the Sea_ by Neutral Milk Hotel - has two tracks that are alphabetical AND sequential - "King of Carrot Flowers Part 1" and "King of Carrot Flowers Part 2." And there was absolutely a gap between them :-(

    Is it only particular formats that can be played back gapless? And more importantly, is there a way to listen to an album in the correct sequence? (Because if there's not, then "gaplessness" is irrelevant, no?)

    Thanks,
    bobg

    It seems like the dev isn't further developping this app anymore. Store says last update was 7/30/2013, more than half a year ago.

    I always check that b4 buying an app...
