WMExperts Prize-A-Day, Day 12

In honor of my metal-intensive review (opens in new tab), let's make it just a little easier to rock out with your WM phone by giving away a copy of CorePlayer - the commercial successor to TCPMP and a great player that supports multiple audio and video formats. It's my favorite media software on WM by far.

How to Win

Do you listen to music on your smartphone, or do you use a different device (or do you not listen to music at all)? I switch back and forth myself - sometimes I can't believe how convenient and awesome it is to have a bunch of music on my phone, other times I just want my iPod. Head on over to the forums and chat a bit about music on the WM5 platform. Any post in this thread between now and noon EST tomorrow, March 1st, qualifies.

..I say this every day - but every day I mean it: Every entry in a daily contest doubles as an entry for the Grand Prize and the two Second Prizes! Namely: A Smartphone of your choice plus $300 to spend in the WMExperts store and a couple of Slingbox Pros.

(Full contest rules are here)

  • The review sounds good - I like the fact that it plays all media types - and less conversion will be needed. However, what is the battery drain like using this program compared to others?
  • I'm working at home most of the time, so I'm usually not listening to music out while I stroll with the phone. I don't have another (worthy) music device, but with the 700wx (new for me), I'm definitely looking forward to using it with music.
    Here's the thing I'm really interested in, though.. streaming internet radio! I'm a long-time fan of and that's almost all I listen to whenever I can stream... I'm sure that's why I don't spend much time worrying about MP3 players and the like. Now that I have unlimited data access on a portable device, THAT'S what I want to do for my music solution! :)
    So far, I hadn't quite figured out how to get their stream going, since the WMP-capable stream is aacPlus, and needs a plugin for WMP. Can I do that??!? I'm hoping to find a much better streaming option, since aacPlus ROCKS... very small data stream with fantastic quality. Go check out WOXY and see for yourself!
  • Hey Luap --
    thanks for the post there, but you'll need to enter in the forums in order to qualify.
  • HLJ -
    Good questions, both. Looks like I'll be adding a full review of CorePlayer to my list of things to be reviewed!

  • I usually use my Sansa e280R with a Rhapsody subscription, though recently I have taken to loading some tracks onto my Samsung i730 simply for the convenience!
