Last week, I previewed OneMusic from developer Phillipe Maes. The third party, full-featured MP3 app serves as a viable alternative to Xbox Music for those on Windows Phone 8.1. I'm happy to announce that OneMusic is now available to download, with a free 5-day trial, after which users can buy the app for $1.99 if the app meets their needs.
OneMusic is a very clean and minimalist app that can access all of your music, whether it is main memory or on your SD expansion card. Users can create and manage playlists, repeat music and randomize tunes as well, with full album art support.
Since I previewed the app, it has received a few more features to round it off, including alphabetical jumplists and the ability to sort tracks when creating playlists . I'm told by Maes that the next update will focus on adding a Live Tile and tag editing , which should complete the music app for many users.
Perhaps the only limitation of OneMusic for some users is it cannot access Xbox Music DRM protected files, nor work with an Xbox Music Pass, for obvious reasons.Other than that though, OneMusic is a stellar creation, especially for a 1.0 release.
Don't take my word for it though, OneMusic has a free 5-day trial, so that you can decide for yourself. Give the app a spin and let me know what you think in comments! [Note: Upon its initial run, OneMusic will need to scan your library to index your music. This could take some time, depending on your library, though it only needs to do this once.]
