    Yeah, find my music is a really promising player, so is zbox, which is still in a beta version!

    Nice sheet, prebuss!
    May I suggest adding another row, showing which players can play drm content (like the Xbox Music files)?

    Cheers

    Brilliant article - looks at my perennial need for Windows phone. However what about Nokia Mix Radio as it has a player built in.

    Hi, thanks!
    Will add the row someday as I don't have any DRM content on my phone at the moment :(

    Thanks! Will add it in another update just for comparison as it neither performs really well nor has any special extra features apart from lyrics.

    Again, thanks for the support everyone!

    Thanks. I found zbox and I'm loving it. Changed from ModernMusic. MM randomly stop after few songs and I don't know why. It always occurs so I changed it to zbox. Yeah navigation on zbox is kinda buggy. When picking songs through the album then pick through the tracks, the last played song from the album will be shown rather than the one who is playing (i.e I picked Blurry through Come Clean album then picked Attack through the track list and Attack will play but Blurry is being shown). You need to close and reopen it.

    Need a row looking at whether the app plays DRM. That is my most needed feature.

    Can you add this?

    Hello! This is a great comparison. Will try out zbox.

    Currently I installed ModernMusic as it has got in built Last.fm scrobbling support but it doesn't seem to be recognizing the songs on my SD card while the default music player does. Can anyone help me out please?
