Looking for a viable alternative to Xbox Music? OneMusic offers a fast, clean alternative as a Windows Phone music app that is worth considering.
With OneMusic users can create and manage playlists, repeat music and randomize songs. OneMusic also includes support for full album art work and can scan both your Windows Phone main memory and SD expansion memory for songs.
The app normally runs $1.99 but through this week's myAppFree deal over the next twenty-four hours you can pick it up for free.
When you first launch OneMusic it will scan and index your music library whether you have files on your main Windows Phone memory or on an SD expansion card. Depending on how large your music library is this could take some time.
Once scanned and indexed, OneMusic will present your music across four pages sorting them by playlists, artists, albums and songs. Settings are accessible from the top menu bar and cover options to choose your startup page, color theme, search for new music and more.
Playback options include your customary play/pause/forward/reverse controls, as well as a repeat and shuffle option. As we noted when OneMusic first hit Store shelves, the only drawback for some users is that the app cannot access Xbox Music DRM protected files or work with an Xbox Music Pass. Other than that, it is a clean looking, appealing option to consider.
Here is Dan's video look at OneMusic's initial release.
Normally OneMusic has a five day trial version with the full version running $1.99. Through the myAppFree deal of the week, for the next 24 hours you can pick OneMusic up for free. If you've been sitting on the fence about OneMusic, now might be the best time to act.
