Xbox Music for Windows Phone 8.1 Updated for 4th Time Commented on: 13 weeks ago (June 16, 2014)

It's annoying, but it's an OS bug, not a Music App bug. (i.e., the same thing happens in every other music app under 8.1, and it DOESN'T happen in the new Music app under 8.0.)

Xbox Music for Windows Phone 8.1 Updated Again Commented on: 16 weeks ago (May 27, 2014)

Doesn't excuse the badness of the app, but if it were me in front of a crowd of expectant listeners, I'd have the playlist queued up and paused :-)

Microsoft to Launch Cheaper Xbox One with No Kinect Commented on: 17 weeks ago (May 16, 2014)

I'm glad to hear that wasn't just me :-)

The gestures were fun for a few days - but even though I'm not even close to a hard-core gamer, I've logged enough hours on the controller so that...

Windows Phone 8.1 Preview: Xbox Music and Video Commented on: 30 weeks ago (February 14, 2014)

Most people for whom gapless playback is important (and I'm one of them, believe me) have likely abandoned WP by now.

With each passing version, the number of votes/demands for gapless...

Windows Phone 8 + GDR2: Xbox Music Improvements Commented on: 50 weeks ago (September 27, 2013)

I don't have GDR2 yet (Nokia 820, USA, booooo AT&T!), and I don't want to get my hopes up unnecessarily...
