After a lengthy debate in the forums (http://forums.windowscentral.com/windows-phone-7-os-discussion/181676.htm), we made an app that would help people who didn't like the way Windows Phone 7 dealt with the music playback controls once you had finished listening to your music.

Do you dislike how once you have finished listening to music with Zune, the playback controls are still visible on the Lock Screen and the Volume bar?
With Stop the Music! you can remove the controls just by opening the application. No need to reboot your phone any more to remove those pesky controls!

I downloaded it this morning Boodev. Works great. :)

No idea what version I have, your app doesn't seem to include a version number.

Or do i need glasses? :)

Just as v1.1 is published, v1.2 is submitted to the maretplace!

This update allows users to disable to auto stop functionality and have a stop button on the main page of the application. This prevents accidental launches of the application clearing the music your listening to, if thats the behaviour you would prefer.

Should be certified in 3-5 days. I'll let people know when.

Its been a while since my last update as we've been very busy on new projects. Stop the Music is now at v1.3 (with Live Tile Album Art) and v1.4 is now pending approval in the marketplace.

Once v1.4 is approved, you won't even need to open the application to Stop the Music!

I'd like to thank you all for downloading Stop the Music, without WPCental this application would have never been born and its recieved some great reviews and feedback.

This app doesn't seem to be working correctly right now. When I open the app, it's not clearing Zune, but inserting an artist named "Stop the Music."

Thanks.
