    My Concept :-)

    I like The first design better, since it fits Windows Phone's look and feel

    I'm sorry, I have to agree on the hidden slide menus - un-metro and pretty annoying as you always have to pull a menu, it doesn't feel solid. I really like how the old hub/ the concept of the new xbox music app. Danny, yours is pretty close to that, a little more rich, and that's ok. I like your concept, especially the first image with the recent as album covers. I'd remove the capitals with "artists" etc. Furthermore, I like the idea of having an artist page with all the album covers of the artist as well. Nicely put!

    Offtopic, is it me or does the dude from Owl City look like Messi?

    For the first post, most of those look very iOS and Android. The fourth post could use a little bit of tweaking with the artist background, could be darker as it's hard to read texts, otherwise it's a nice panoramic concept. For the eighth post, despite that zune is a dead name, it'd be really nice to have this as an alternative media player, really nice how the collection and recent reflects the zune hd interface.

    OP - Do you work for Xbox Music?

    I'm gonna have to say redesign 1 looks sleek. I also like that it more closely resembles the Windows 8.1 music player on the desktop. Widescreen support and the ability to edit album art and artist images would be great within the app.

    Haha I wish. I'd be smacking heads all day. Just concepts I found on the net. The very first posts are from the Windows Phone websites (UK and US)

    At first I thought the zune concept was a photoshop, but now that he's mentioned that it's an app, looking back at the photos suddenly it looked legit judging by the timing of the songs and how the recent pane actually keeps track of previously played songs. I would also like a copy.

    The blocky charging Icon makes it obviously 8.1. But is it sideloaded or a hack or something? Or a very mean photoshop

    Probably an app he's been working on and deployed with the SDK.

    But believe me, we are all pawing at his pantlegs!

    If it is, could he share XD. Besides, I don't really think Xbox music is a mess. On the computer and web.l, it's decent. I do think that Microsoft is killing the Xbox Music brand with this app though. That's 1.5 million(total no of people on 8.1 at last count) people now who are gonna have mixed feelings about Xbox anything. Oh and the video app is decent tbh.

    I appreciate you guys like my work, but it is nothing special really. Unfortunately I can't release the app for obvious reasons, one being the app is heavily based off copyrighted materials, so I'm using this for myself. Like the others guessed, I have started developing this app since the release of xbox music before 8.1 came out, likely because I have had quite a sluggish experience with it. It's still in development but it already does play my music so I'm kinda slacking off, although genres and playlists still doesn't work so I couldn't get screenshots of them. Artist images look different rather because I configure them manually, somehow I cannot get the feed to work and displays blank instead so I didn't bother with it. There's still a lot to fix and to add, and takes an awful lot of time for me to develop since I ain't no Rudy Huyn.

    Here are a couple more screenshots.

    Here's what the player looks like when it's not playing anything, it displays the last played song instead.
