    I've googled, I've read article after article about this subject, I've gone through hundreds of apps in the Store, but my quest continues.

    And now I end up here! WP Central, which music player do you use, find to be the most fluid, useful and effective?

    I've tried 'Listen', but found it too clunky to use while driving and keeping an eye on the road, and I despised the small, rotating artwork. I've tried Music+ and it seemed to have too many extra features, like DJ stations, music groups and finding new artists.. My list could go on. I've ended up with Xbox music, but I'd like to know what you guys think.

    I use the old WP8 music player using the app Music Hub Tile. I found it to be the most responsive, which I need.

    second, is the new Xbox Music app, which I could live with, but I'm picky when it comes to an extra second or two to bring up the playlist, etc.

    Music Hub Tile is fast just like the Music+Videos on WP8.

    ModernMusic is a good one too although playlists are tough

    The old Music Hub is now glitchy on my phone (Lumia 822 WP8.1 DP) and it wasn't before on WP8. I have issues with duplicate artists, one seems to show the music stored in the SD card and the other one the streaming music only. Sometimes I filter the music to play SD card only and it will stream anyway, etc.

    I was pretty happy with the Windows Phone 8 Music app, because the Windows Phone 8.1 app was a total mess.

    However I found a pretty amazing and extremely fluid replacement called OneMusic.

    Definitely try it!

    The one that comes with the phone actually works pretty good for me. :) Just called Music, I think.

    Hands down, ModernMusic is the one I use. It does everything I want, and none of the garbage I don't want. I don't want to listen to music on the cloud. That's why I bought the 64GB SD Card. I want everything local, so I don't have to pay for data when I'm listening to music all day.

    I really like Music Wall: Music Wall | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
    Free version: Music Wall - Free | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
    It's very simple and looks nice. Perfect for picking albums quickly, without digging through menus. I recommend setting the wall layout to vertical only.

    I used Find My Music Too and that was great-except there were slight issues with the app not reading what I labeled the music as but some stupid stuff so I ended up getting typos/misspelled artists and songs in different albums. It was uncommon but there.
    ModernMusic seemed pretty great as well.
    But now I use the default Music app simply because it's so easy to make a playlist. Little hard to navigate but otherwise a solid app.

    Unfortunately default Music app doesn't have autostop (sleep) functionality, so it is useless for late evening listening. Besides the interface is indeed a bit harder to navigate.

    Thanks, it is very good player indeed but no "sleep" function as with the stock player. I can't understand that. May be it is just me, but for music player software main functionality should be focused on playing music, that includes playlists, start and stop music. A lot of people listen music late at night and that's why in 90's every music device (even my old "Walkman" did!!!) had its "sleep" function.

    And I know there is an app (like stop music or sleep timer) for this, but why should I use an app to kill the app I want to have "pause after" function ?!!
