    Very nice app and worth the money. Just one issue tho,
    in the music library if I select an artist the songs seems to get sorted by album and then alphabetical order instead of track number, this doesn't happen if I directly select an album from the album menu.
    Thank you!

    I used to be on iPhone before and I've tried many players on wp to find something like the brilliant iPod app. Music PRO Player PRO is very very good player. Just what we need on wp. Just one thing is missing to be perfect Sistog: the possibility to explore a playlist, a genre or an album (I mean see the song's list) without playing it. And an other little thing like this: when exploring an artist, you could add an intermediate screen with the album's list, and then we can choose an album before to access the song's list of the album. The best would be to keep the present possiblity to see the entire song's list of an artist too.
    Some little bugs sometimes cause I have 5000 titles in because nothing serious.
    Best wp music player ever!

    Sistog - Please add a simple function to sort albums by artist (A-Z) in the album view, much like how Itunes does it. And when you browse by artists it should show the albums by the artist, then clicking on the album to see the songs. It would also be helpful if in album view it would remain in list or cluster view depending on how you leave it the last time you used it.

    It's a great app, but there's a simple but deal breaking problem with navigating your collection of music.

    Hi Sistog,

    Just found your app and so far it is the best WP8 music player I have found for just playing my locally stored music collection.

    A couple of Feature Requests / Suggestions

    1. Option to sort albums for an Artist in RELEASE DATE order

    eg Coldplay - I have 5 albums

    Currently they appear in alphabetical order:
    1. A Rush of Blood to the Head
    2. Mylo Xyloto
    3. Parachutes
    4. Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends
    5. X&Y

    I want to see them in RELEASE DATE order, ie
    1. Parachutes
    2. A Rush of Blood to the Head
    3. X&Y
    4. Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends
    5. Mylo Xyloto


    2. Live Tiles
    The Live Tile seems to display the current song/album art correctly when you come from the app back to the start screen, but the live tile doesn't seem to immediately update when the next song starts playing the same way the Live Tile for the default music player does (ie it changes the name of the artist immediately).

    Anyway, some ideas for the Live Tile assuming you can get it to update correctly for each new song playing:-

    Medium Tile - include Album name
    When the live tile flips from the Album Art to the current song details, it currently shows the song title at the top and the artist at the bottom. Can the album be listed underneath the Song Title (perhaps in the same smaller font used for the Artist name at the bottom).


    Wide Tile
    Left side of the Tile: Album Art (ie as is currently)
    Right side of the Tile: Song Title, Album name and Artist (ie the detail that the Medium tile currently shows when it flips).

    Option for either Wide Tile not to FLIP or if it does FLIP, then when it flips, show the next track details (eg song name, album, artist).


    Anyway, just some initial ideas. Keep up the good work.

    Sistog's Music Player Pro is on its way to becoming one of the best smart phone music players out there with this new library management update. It's now easier to browse your music albums under the artists.

    Please make a toggle under settings to choose between organizing the albums (in album view) between alphabetical order and by order of artist. The reason for is this is if you owned physical CD's on a bookshelf, you want all the AC/DC discs next to each other, rather than have them all over the place. As it currently stands, my Ayreon CD's are next to Van Halen, because of alphabetical album ordering.

    In a future update I think it would be a huge plus to have this app support widescreen viewing/album browsing. None of the other music players on Windows Phone have that ability.

    It would also be good if when you clicked the song on the retractable mini player on the phone, it would take you to Music Player Pro, rather than Xbox Music. I also noticed when you skip tracks using the mini player, it doesn't update the Music Player Pro's live tile.

    thanks for your comments!
    @Zelig87
    Unfortunately there is no way to detect the release date of an album, so we can't order album by release date.
    We are working on more functional tiles, but also here the limitations for third-party applications are many.

    @tjecco
    at the moment you can search in library (incluse playlist) with the advanced search. but if you want to search within the current playlist you have to wait the next release


    @themadpoet1
    We just send a new update with the possibility to sort album by name or by artist name. Should arrive in about 4 days.

    Thanks Sistog, you're awesome!

    Has anyone noticed that hitting the skip button on the mini-player doesn't update the live tile for Music Player Pro, unless you go back into the app?

    The info must be there somewhere, because other players can do it. Maybe look in the metadata of the first song on each album ?

    Not just when you hit skip, but also when the current song ends and the player moves on to the next song - the Live Tile just sits there showing the details of the first song.

    One question before I jump, is gapless playback available on this app?
    02-20-2014 01:55 PM

    I think you will find no WP8 music player can do gapless playback. It is an OS issue.

    That's a shame. It's one feature that is sorely needed on WP
    Indeed it is. A movable playbar along with bookmarks. I like to listen to a playlist of two or more three hour radio programmes which I have ripped to MP3 and no way I can use my phone for this due to these functional deficiencies. Guess I will keep the old MP3 player on the go instead then.

    Other media player apps (such as BBC iPlayer and iPodcast) have a moveable playbar so I don't understand why you can't make a music player with one? Or could I fool iPodcast into playing my own MP3 files?

    Hi sistog, tried and purchased almost immediately. Great job !
    One easy to solve I suppose: once I list by album there's appearently no way to have one album view if the same album includes several artists (means 3 album with te same cover, one per artist ... correct ? do I miss anything ?

    It depends on how you have organized the id3 tag of your collection. Music Player Pro is able to differentiate album with the same name but different artists.

    A new update is available in the store:

    2.2.4.1
    -------
    - Fix graphics in Landscape
    - Automatic scrolling to the current track in the playlist
    - Live Tile with image is now optional
    - Search tracks in the playlist

    Your app is awesome. Beautiful. But what prevents me to buying it is the way the album cover is shown. Glad to see I can make it bigger, but it gets covered by the player interface. Thas my only problem with the player. If you can fix that I instantaneously would buy the app.

    Edit:
    As I can see, the zoom only do that, zoom the album, it reduces the quality of the picture (1200x1200 or 600x600, both in my case), so it is a merely zoom of the small album then. This thing is a serious issue to me (and others that also have Hig-Res album cover on their music).

    The landscape mode is really beautiful, seriously, but in this mode the quality of the album art decreases too.

    God, I'm drooling just to think that if the things that I commented gets solved, this is going to be the perfect music app for Windows Phone. I'll be able to forget the laggy and buggy Xbox Music on Windows Phone 8.1

    By the Way, if you want help with a Spanish translation, I can help with that.
