Why charge for something we already have?
Music Player Review
by on August 28, 2011
The Zune player might be an adequate system to play music with, but we’re always looking for upgrades.
However, this really isn’t one. Music Player is an application that will constantly berate you to upgrade to the full, paid application yet doesn’t offer anything better other than a slightly cooler app icon.
The premise appears to be simplicity – the buttons to control music are all larger and the other options, such as playlist, shuffle and repeat, are all available on their own row.
Except for one thing – all that stuff is on offer from the Zune player and in our opinion, is superior.
There’s no sign of the clever audio processing or tweaking we were hoping for – instead we’re treated only to a selection of poor graphics and different buttons.
It’s slower than the Zune player too, thus making it even more maddening if you decided to pay a quid to download it.
Nothing is technically wrong with it bar the speed – it’s just uninspiring and not really worth the cash.
