    Hello all

    As our Pocket File manager for WP8.1 lost ability to play music in background (Thank you Microsoft for our happy childhood). We decided to write separate application to play music in folders. The main purpose for this player is to play file by file from the folder. It does not use play lists, does not use IDTags and so one. Simply solution : folder=play list. To add folder in to the collection, bring up the menu and tap on "+" button.

    Here is link to application Folder Play | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    And as we promised to our customers it is completely free and no ads!
    Application is still in development so expect a few bugs :)

    Some bugs or strange behavior:
    At first run after installation sometimes when you select folder it won't be visible. If you got such behavior, kill application and run again.
    At first run when you select any file to play, application might not change play button to pause button. Same here. Kill app and start again.

    We are working to fix all bugs :)

    Nope. This player does not have its own decoders. It uses WP to play music, so if WP will support flac, it will play, but as I know flac is not supported by WP

    Very nice and useful app. Thank you! No more error messages. If it would support lossless audio it would be just perfect.

    Small updated just published today. Now player will show cover for each track, if track has cover image integrated into it.

    Also one tip about album covers.
    If you do not have album logo in your mp3 files, just put file "folder.jpg" inside the folder and it will be used as album cover

    Hey Ray,

    Love the app and the fact that it can goto the app through the volume bar!
    I have a suggestion. Could you make the app tile be live and give a toggle for transparency? I know that you'll have to create a new set of icons, but I would really love to have them!

    Thanks again

    I also encountered a bug. For example if I'm scrolling through the folder real fast (I have the songs positions memorized :) ) The list randomly jumps between Left aligned and right aligned to center.

    I did not get about live tile and transparency. As about that bug with scrolling, this is how ListBox works in wp8.1 RunTime applications. I have no control over it

    Ok, I guess that clears the doubt about listing.

    I was asking whether, you could implement the option of having a non-transparent tile (i.e. background image isn't visible).
    Also whether the large/medium tile pinned could display Artists name and such

    The bad news about live tiles :) Microsoft will never stops to surprise me! 8-)
    Background audio player CANNOT update live tile! At least for Folder Play when I try to update live tile it won't work. Updating live tile from application , when it is in foreground works without any problems. But this is not good idea because you mostly do not see application as you listen to music in background.

    Until I found better way to bypass stupid Microsoft restrictions, there are will be no live tiles for folder play :(
