    Hi I'm a Developer/UI Designer. U specialize more with UI of apps. I like what you've done but I was wondering if you'd be interested in working with me to redesign your app and make it even better!

    Great, I just install the app. I will send you my feedback tomorrow once I used it for the rest of today.

    2. I mean Album Art. ModernMusic does this. Only logo don't look good.
    3. I have 4 songs in an album with 4 different artists. When on album view, I want to group them based on album name but on artist view, I want to group them based on artist.
    Currently, in album view, it shows 4 entries for a single album.
    Thanks.
    And what about that super important 3rd point?
    I did not test the album grouping much so let me know of the bugs. You can choose to leave the last tracks title if you wish but I recommend library art option I've also added.

    Yes, just the logo and a transparent background. Really love how you value our feedback.
    Added transparent tile option :)



    Added everyone else as well. I'm still working on other things people have requested, this is it for now though.

    v1.3.0.1
    - Fixed issue where tapping on album while scanning would not register tap to play the song
    - Transparent Tile option
    - Option to set tile behavior after music finishes (default Music Locker tile, last song tile, library album art [requires cache clear + one library rescan])
    - Group albums by artist, album artist, album name

    Album Grouping is not working even after fresh install. Also Live Tile is amazing now.
    Thanks.

    Which method are you grouping by? Your albums are not grouped at all?

    I am grouping my albums based on album name and no, albums are not grouped at all.
    I have 7 songs in an album with different artists and album artists and there are 7 entries in album view.

    It should actually group it regardless of Album Artist or Artist so shouldn't matter of it's from Nokia Mix Radio.

    I tested and had success with the albums I knew had songs with different artists but the same album name which were previously all separated. You said you did a full reinstall? A quick scan won't do it, you would need turn that off and do one full scan unless you did reinstall in which case quick scan shouldn't matter. You're sure the album names are exactly the same?

    Yes. Album names are exactly the same. See the screenshot.


    Not a single album has been grouped.

    Thanks, it's helpful. To confirm you have unchecked quick scan and then ran a scan on your device as well?

    You need to uncheck 'quick scan' in the settings (just for one scan), make sure you have set it to group by album name in the settings and then scan device (if the music is on your device).

    I did what you said and now they are grouped Perfectly fine. Thanks.
    The only problem is with the album arts now but again that is a mix radio thing.

    A little input coming here that bugs me :P

    When I am playing my playlist and I am in the ''Now playing-screen'', I would really like to be able to tap either the name of the current song playing or the name of the coming up next song - to go to the queue. Now you have to navigate back to go there - which feels wrong. Also, when I got back to the queue, I want to be able to tap a song to play that one - and the list kinda shuffles again or something. Now nothing happens when I go to the queue and tap a song I want to play that's queued up 10 songs later.

    Other than that, a bit faster and improved app over the time and I must say this fits my needs 100%. Really in love with this player. Beautiful, really functional when playing your own music collection which I am doing. Love the livetile now. Just keep it up dude!

    Is this app going into Windows 10, or what's your plans for the future?

    - Faster resume
    - Minor changes to live tile
    - Navigate directly to queue from Now Playing Page (tap 'Up Next' or the next track)
    - Option to choose what happens when you tap on a song in the queue (do nothing, play next, play now)
    - Landscape mode tweaks
    - Other Bug Fixes

    Can you implement ReplayGain?
    All of my files have ReplayGain tags. I use foobar2000 on my laptop and this player uses the ReplayGain tags to keep a consistent volume between different albums. I tried a lot of WP music apps, but didn't find any that implement ReplayGain. A decent music player app for WP 8.1 that implements ReplayGain would be an instant buy for me.

    I also tried Spotify: this app adjust the background color to the album art, which is a nice feature. Could you implement the same on your app (not really a show stopper if it's not possible, just some nice extra eye candy)?

    Noiz does this perfectly.

    Definitely something I'll look into, probably not right away but at some point. I've added it to my to do list.
