    There is an update to Music Hub Tile. Don't do it. The dev has changed it so no tile will pin unless you pay. You now have to pin the app itself on the start screen, which is now just a bland green tile without any icon on it. That opens the app itself in which there is a button that says "Open Music Hub".

    It's a little cheap from the dev to do this. Just changing the rules once you've gotten people to use your app especially since this is technically just a temporary fix until Microsoft sorts the XBox Music app out. But what cha gonna do...

    I hope there will be another developer who'll create a similar app which will be free. I was actually about to purchase the app to activate the transparent live tile, but with what he did with the update, I changed my mind. He is the kind of developer I wouldn't want to support. EVER.

    How dare these devs try to make money for their hard work. The nerve of some people...

    Oh please I'm a dev myself. I know and understand the work put in developing. I'm not saying he shouldn't be paid. I'm saying he changed the rules without warning. He should have either made the app paying at first or kept it free with paid options.

    We all know devs do some serious hard works to make an app. No one is saying he shouldnt be paid. But the main thing is he should have kept at least ONE, only ONE free tile for the ppl who cant buy apps. That wouldn't hurt would it? And anyway MS is going to fix the music hub today or tomorrow, after that no one will even bother to keep his app in their phones!

    First I'm a Web dev so no apps. Second, I absolutely don't feel the need to prove anything to you or anyone and third you're missing the point Makm described.

    This is from the dev's Twitter:

    "For developers who think Music Hub tile is easy and want to write a new one. It's: I'm possible, and Impossible for u (99.99%)."

    Lol

    That's a strangely arrogant message. I mean no doubt it must be complicated. But I doubt only .1% can do it...

    I hope he doesn't continue acting in a way that makes me regret donating.

    Anyways, its been updated, had to repin the app. Works fine, adds new stuff like Zune tiles etc.
    I donated with that app to get the ability to pin, and it hasn't bothered me about anything else post-update, so that's nice.

    Noticed it seems to go to the Tile Hub App for a split second before going to the hub, hope it doesn't appear too often.

    That horrible excuse for a developer only created a link to the old music app that's still in the Windows phone code, he didn't in the slightest "make a music app".

    I honestly don't even use it. Sure I hate the new app, but it's getting better. I'm sure within a few months, it'll be almost to where it needs to be.

    Wow, look at the buy now screen he made. "Used some unique technique, and sale $0.99 is not for tiles but for technique." Oh my god!

    What's worse is it says in the update notes "If the icon of app disappeared after update, please uninstall and reinstall, it's a bug of WP"

    Pathetic piece of ****.

    Repinning did bring the icon back for me, but since the update it still brings me to the "buy tiles" page instead of directly into the music hub.

    So less scummy than initialy thought, but still worse than before the update for customers that don't feel like paying for a shortcut to original MS code.

    I think this is bull. I noticed this morning that the app was showing as nothing more than a blank green square on my 810's home screen. WTF is that??? So, now you have to pay just to get the opaque tile with the headphones showing? Um... No. I ended up uninstalling it. I can live with the developer wanting people to pay for the transparent tile, but the plain opaque one? GTFO... Honestly, at this point, after using Nokia MixRadio for nearly the last two months, I really don't put as much emphasis on the music hub anymore; I only have music on my 810 and 920 just to have it if I somehow can't access MixRadio (but I normally listen to my offline mixes anyway).

    Not that it matters, but I uninstalled this app a while ago. The regular Xbox music app I still slow but it's faster than it was and mostly usable.

    Yes it's better than it was. My only beef is that I still need more than 100 songs to play...

    Also, sometimes, it's faster to open up the Music Hub Tile and tap on "Open Music Hub" than open XBox Music that keeps searching for music. Why can't it just make a list and not always update it!
