    Its really really frustrating when a mobile operating system, after a slew of updates and revisions, is yet to find an app as basic as a Music player with all the essential features. The first and foremost issue is there is no seek bar while playing music. Though they added this feature (so small in length) with the latest Win8.1 release in the default Music app, the app has become so slow and lethargic sometimes. Though there a variety of Music players and downloaders available, almost all of them don't have this seek bar or their UI is not good. I couldn't understand what's the problem with the developers in including this essential feature (seek bar) and giving a kick-*** UI.

    Its building a new OS and they have the basics in. When they are ready to bring it, they will. Until then, what are you using?

    I use mix radio on my current 1320, but I also love Zune music on my older Lumia 710. I still can't understand why MS screwed Xbox music on wp8.1

    That's understandable you don't understand since MS never offered an explanation. :p

    Seriously, Xbox music is terrible in comparison to Zune. The Zune software on the desktop was well designed and was comparable to itunes with the method of syncing and music management on Windows Phone 7. Xbox music on my phone occasionally crashes and there have been many times when I told Cortana to "play my music" and the app would crash and I'd have to reopen the app while driving.

    Don't even get me started. It's a total joke and a huge embarrassment. Completely unacceptable, there's just no excuse for it when it's been almost 4 yrs since WP7 came out. When the list of issues with perhaps the most basic function of a smartphone is this long, is it a surprise that WP doesn't sell?

    Too slow
    Cant seek
    No wireless sync
    Metadata, album art and artist background pics are all messed up
    No gapless playback
    Integration with Windows Store is crappy

    It's a joke that people try to make excuses or tell people to download some crappy third party app. This is why the iPhone 6 has sold more units this past weekend (4m) than prob the # of Windows Phones sold globally this quarter.

    Embarrassment? Are you embarrassed by a music player?
