    Well the app split my albums. For example if an album has two songs then it made it into 2 different albums. Also it was not able to identify album art of many albums. I think it is a problem with the songs downloaded from Nokia music now mix radio.
    The overall ui looks good for sure ;)

    Can you show me an example? A screenshot of the two albums?

    I'm not familiar with downloads from Mix Radio, is the Album Art embedded? If it's not that's why it wouldn't pick it up.

    Thanks

    PM me a link to one of the files with album art trouble when you are able to, I'll see if anything can be done.

    Looks like it's because they are different Artists. This was done intentionally, however I will add the option to group similar albums regardless if they are by different Artists.

    They have different artists for the individual tracks but the same artist for the entire album. If it helps.

    It works fine on my L720 (which also has a 512 Mb RAM). The app is much more than what I expected by the way.

    Thanks for adding me. Really your app is way cooler than the Xbox music app. I absolutely love the design.
    I have a few suggestions, firstly while scrolling in the songs/artist/album list it should sort according to alphabets so that browsing is easier especially when there is a lot of music. Secondly if I play another batch of songs from another album, songs from the previous album stays in the queue list. It is something that should be cleared automatically. Thirdly if the songs are shuffled it shuffles up nicely but when the shuffle button is pressed again it does not return to the original serial numbering of the album.

    Regarding your first point, if you open up the app menu at the bottom you can sort your songs, artists or albums (by track name, artist, date modified, etc..) The sorting for each tab has a separate setting and different sorting options are available for each. I will most likely include a jump list when I get some time. Your second point about the queue not being cleared when playing an album (or artist for that matter), I will most likely add the option to clear the queue - this is already done when starting a playlist. Third, yes this is how it is currently though I would like to have it behave like you mentioned at some point, it could be a bit challenging when adding different items to your queue (albums, artists, individual tracks, playlists) as they are all meshed together. Appreciate the feedback, it will help me improve the app.

    Fixed in new update, please try it out.

    Secondly if I play another batch of songs from another album, songs from the previous album stays in the queue list. It is something that should be cleared automatically.
    Added option to auto clear queue in settings.


    // Update
    Sorry all for the lack of updates, unfortunately had to work on the weekend so did not have much time. I've submitted a new update 1.1.0.5 to the store, included are some fixes and tweaks.

    v1.1.0.5
    - Added repeat option
    - Fixed grouping of albums with same album artist
    - UI Tweaks (sorting, changing libraries, now playing page)
    - Option to clear queue auto when playing album or artist collection
    - Bug fixes

    For those of you that have given feedback (good or bad) I'd like to thank you, I'm going to try and address everything that's been mentioned so far at some point if it hasn't already.

    Yep that has been partially fixed. But i guess the problem is with the albums downloaded from Nokia music(mixradio) . Neither it reads their album covers nor groups the albums into one.

    Hmm, I tested and it worked fine for me. Have you made sure to rescan the library (settings->library->scan device)?

    ps. Send me the song where the art does not load and I'll see if anything can be done.
