    Updated the app to v1.1.0:
    - New ability to manually add additional artists by searching an artist then swiping left and tapping Follow!
    - About page merged into Settings page.
    - Fixed crashing when navigating to Settings page while loading data.

    So even if you don't have any music in your music collection, you can still receive new releases (Live Tile included) by using the Follow/Unfollow features.

    Expect another update soon.

    Hey, i been looking for something like this to keep track of new album releases.
    And it looks just about right, the "only" problem is that any new settings don't stick. Same thing going on with manually adding artists to follow, they are gone the next time i open the app.

    I have windows phone 8 black, on lumia 520.

    Hello! I apologize for the extremely long delay.
    Yes you are right the settings and added artists were being cleared everytime the app would launch. I have fixed it the next update which should be certified in a few days.

    Thank you for your feedback coldcomfort!

    Good to know it wasn't a problem on my side, and that it's already fixed in the next update. I think this can be useful app for many.

    Everything (new settings, manually adding artists, the live tile) seems to work just fine after the latest update. It just picked up a new Tiger Lillies release that doesn't show up on many sites.
    Thank you for the app.


    One small suggestion would be to have an option to use the latest "caught" album cover, as the background for the menu.
