    Hi there, I been using the "Music + Videos" app to play my music (has the Nokia Music app disappeared?), but I'm looking for a different player. What I need is:

    - gapless play (neither "Music+Videos" or the Nokia Music app can do this)
    - compilations should be shown as 1 album, 1 artist (Nokia Music puts an entry for every artist)

    Other extras like making playlists on the fly would be nice, but the above requirements are more important. "Music+Videos" works find for me in most senses, but it does not do gapless play, and for some reason there's always one or more albums that will be stored under "Unknown Album" and "Unknown Artist" even though the ID3 tags are set properly (anyone an idea why that is?)

    Nokia Music has been replaced with Nokia MixRadio. You can find it here :

    Nokia MixRadio | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Mixradio don't work in my region. I simply use TTpod.
    TTPod | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    It may not have gapless play, but it's a solid player, no nonsens, and it does come in English.

    Back in the days of Symbian, it was even better.

    I dont think that API from Microsoft for Windows phone allow to work with gaps between two songs. That API is quite limited, creation of playlists is not supported neither as far as I know.
    I use iTunes to sort out my music, add tags, cover images, artists to everything look cool and then I use Windows phone app to transfer it from iTunes to my Lumia.
    For playing music on my Lumia I use Musico Musico | Windows Phone Store – aplikace+hry (Česká republika), which looks cool.
