    The PERFECT music playing app for Windows 8.


    I'd like to share this app to everyone, I don't know if it'll be able to be downloaded as it's in the UK version of the Windows Store, but THIS! Music Info!! Oh my gravy! THIS, is what a quintessential metro designed app for Windows 8 is! THIS, is what Xbox Music should had morphed into after Zune!! YES!!!

    Music Info app for Windows in the Windows Store

    Oh my gosh, this app is like the Windows 8 version of Nokia Music! Any Nokia Windows Phone users might know what I'm talking about! EXCLAMATION MARK!

    just click on view in windows store and it take you to the download in Canada ,$1.49 cdn ,or a choice to try ,I click try and am using it now ,in you opinion why is such a great app ?

    Edit to add this -liking it now as I play around with it ,takes my collection and add to playlist of sorts ,but I like the ability to compare other artist who play similar stuff as artist I listen to now !

    so If I pay for it do I get to select similar artist and play there music over the internet or do I just get the ability to buy there music and download it ?

    This is part of the reason why it's a great app. It's functional than Xbox Music, which in all honesty, Xbox Music on Windows Phone is better. The other HUGE reason that it's great and WAY better than Xbox Music: the beautiful metro design of it. That app is the BEST definition of how to design an app for Windows 8. It's clean, it's modern, it's immersive. Xbox Music is just meh.

    I read that if you buy the app, it allows you to have a live tile and will have a beta version of a metadata editor for individual tracks in Album view. Something again, Xbox Music doesn't really have.

    Oh my!! I am loving this app! Even better than Xbox Music, and even uses LESS system resource than Xbox Music! This is like......gorgeous! It's like the perfect port over of Nokia Music! It's fantastic! If music streaming abilities and mixes can be added like Nokia Music, I can die happy!

    Hi there
    I still think Winamp beats all of these -- especially with its ability to play music based on FOLDER selection and to have music libraries than can span different disks.

    Winamp can also use Gracenote for automatic tagging and can rip CD's etc into FLAC format too.

    I've even got this applcation on an android smartphone too -- works in latest release of "Dumbdroid" --4.1

    cheers

    Thanks CR,

    I am amazed how quickly it cataloged my collection. Sooo much faster than Media Player.

    What the what?! You can pin artists to the Start Screen!

    It seems like there is a glitch with it as some people are reporting crashes with it. I've been getting them too, as well as the Nearby crash.
