    Wp8 lvr: Sorry for misunderstanding :-) , the app is not ready yet... My previous post meant that I am waiting for the Xbox Music team to approve my registration for the APIs. It is quite a complicated process, but I hope it will be ok and I will be approved.

    Hello Venkat,

    thank you very much for your suggestions :-) .

    1) Sorting - that should be definitely possible :-) .
    2) Different views - the app will have multiple different views of albums
    3) Yes, to max out the performance, this will be the best solution :-) .

    Please include a New Releases section. I don't understand why Microsoft removed that in 8.1.

    Also, this may be a little off topic, but does the API availability allow developers to create a Roku app for Xbox music?
    Hello thirdcup, thank you for joining :-) . Will do :-) .
    Regarding your question - I'm not really sure :-) . I'm now waiting to get my registration approved so that I have a better access to the APIs.

    I am getting really pumped for this app already. There's been music apps trying to replace Xbox music but none of them really does it. I still find myself going back to that awful app for my music. I hope this is the one I'll be able to ditch Xbox music completely for..

    Hello, the Graywolf, thank you :-) ! I think that utilizing this model of instant feedback from you, friends on WPCentral, we can make the app exactly the right way. Because before it is released nothing stops me from doing major changes according to your feedback and that way it will be great :-) .

    Hello friends,

    few moments ago I have received a response on my Xbox Music API registration, and it is approved :-) ! I had to supply some additional details, because the registration requires a company account and signing NDA, but after that the API should be accessible :-) !

    Thank you all for making this happen, I'm super excited :-) !!!

    I have couple of suggestions and would like you to give me a feedback on them:

    -Name of app to be: Musik, because it sounds more official than MusicNow
    -Speed and fluidity to be priority
    -Changing music with gestures like in official Xbox Music
    -Album art of currently playing music in background of app
    -Fast loading
    -Minimalism
    -Tile dinamicly showing info about currently playing artist/song

    Hello Emanuel, thank you very much for your suggestions :-) .
    - Name of the app is far from "set in stone", MusicNow is just the working title :-) . Unfortunately, Musik is already taken. Moreover, having "music" in name exactly is better, because it will show up more in Store search results. Speed and fluidity are definitely the priority :-)
    - Swiping :-) .
    - Album art on background - I will give the user a choice to select clean background or images, or currently playing
    - Fast loading - definitely
    - Minimalism - I will keep the app in lines with Windows Phone design guidelines
    - Dynamic tile - yes :-)

    Hello friends,

    now signing more documents to get access to the APIs, very complicated process :-) .

    As the topic was already started - what would you like as the name of the app? Please post your suggestions here, so we can select the name later :-) .

    Can you make the app switch the equalizer based on the genre of the current song that's being played if it can recognize the genre? The music hub music store had new songs section for each genre, if you can bring that back that'll be huge for me, makes finding good new music easy. Another thing you can try is provide suggestions and alerts if a user's favorite artist makes a new album/song. I have no idea how hard this would be to implement lol but this is what I think a good music app should be able to do.

    Hello Dave,

    for equalizer, that is not easily possible, unfortunately, because the APIs available by the system are limited and only the system wide equalizer can change these audio settings easily.
    Suggestions and alerts - that could be possible, but in that case we would be expanding MusicNow to a kind of social network experience - which is a great point for future improvements, but for the first releases I will probably keep focus on the playback side of things, to make MusicNow the best possible way to play music and then will expand the idea further with social aspect and your great idea :-) !

    I think MusicNow is perfect.

    MusicX
    MusicEx
    MusicPlay
    MusikX
    PlayNow
    Zmusik
    MusicAlpha , muzik

    keep something common in all ur apps same like Rudy use 6 in all ther apps I.e. 6tin, 6gram, cloud6, 6sec.. so users can remember ur apps easily..

    Hello Wp8 lvr,
    nice ideas :-) ! Certainly, using the same naming scheme for apps is a nice thing, but at the same time, I feel that it takes the fun away from making every app unique a little bit :-D - it is hard to decide :-) !

    I understand but ppl can easily focus on you if u adopt same name scheme n find ur apps easily..
