    So with the 8.1 update giving us a crappy music player, I figured I'd see if anyone has found a usable alternative. For this, I speak solely about local music playback.

    I gave Nokia Mix Radio a try, but it's REALLY slow to load, so I'd prefer to find something faster than it. I also tried musiXmatch, but it sorted by track artist, rather than album artist (annoying if you want to listen to a compilation of multiple artists). I'm going to keep looking for other options, but if anyone else has something worth giving a shot, throw it out there.

    Aw thank you! I couldn't figure this out for the life of me. you have to swipe left from a specific point of the screen(middle). I was doing it at the bottom.

    As do I. It really is a lot nicer than say Xbox music. And my music from iTunes plays.

    yeah mine too, and the developer already promised a 8.1 update in the summer so i think it'll become my first choice music app
