    How do you download song to phone function? I bought the app base on this claim but when ever I turn data off it does not play any song.

    • By default, the app create online links and doesn’t download locally. You can navigate to skydrive option and click on whatever song you want to download. I will then download it locally.
      You may then have 2 entries in your local music. One for online and another one for local.

  2. Will the app see pre-existing playlists? What file extension?

    • No, it doesn’t recognize existing playlist.

    Can’t access sky drive from HTC arrive. Keep getting family safety settings will not allow… Set to adult and still no access, is there a certain item that must be made available? Are these the settings found in Xbox live? If not, where?

    Ive uploaded several dozen songs to skydrive. How do i link them all automatically (not one by one) so i can stream on the app?

    May 18, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    • You can select “skydrive” from main menu. Once navigate to the folder where your songs are uploaded, click import from the appbar menu option. It will automatically create links for playback.

  7. This is a cool app but could really use some improvements. First, it’s really irritating to have to sign in over and over when clicking the skydrive button. It seems random, sometimes it doesn’t make you sign in again. It doesn’t ask for my user/pw, just makes me click the sign in button then the permissions button. Looks like a bug to me.

    “import” could be improved, that sounds an awful lot like “download”. Maybe “add to list” or something.

    It’s very irritating to have to click each file in a folder to download it. Download all in a folder would be very nice to have.

    If I import a folder more than once I get duplicates in my locals, which need to be deleted one by one, very irritating.

    After downloading, each song loses the album name and is set to “unknown”. Auto load works, but again, it’s 5 clicks per file, one by one. Ugh.

    Adding songs one by one to a play list – ugh. Let me add a whole folder to a playlist, in aphabetical order.

    why are all the skydrive links in my download area under “completed”. this is very confusing. I never downloaded those. The actual downloads are all mixed in with the skydrive links – very confusing.

    Cool app and with some more ease-of-use features would be very useful.

    This app is great but there is one issue that is making me frustrated. Every time I try to open local music it boots me off the app and I only have about 60 songs on it. I would like to know how to fix this asap.

    • Are you talking about skymusic or skyplayer?

      July 13, 2012 at 9:57 pm

      • Dan Schinzing

        Skymusic

        July 14, 2012 at 1:25 pm

      • Dan Schinzing

        Its both skymusic and skyplayer now because i thought I’d try skyplayer but alas the result was me getting booted off.

        July 14, 2012 at 5:32 pm

      • Can you describe the steps and also any information that would be useful in reproing it at my end.

        thanks Sent from my Windows Phone

        To get my music on the skymusic\skyplayer apps I use the SkyDrive on my PC with my windows live account in a folder called music which is only viewable to me (my email is danielschinzing@hotmail.com). So I use the the music from Itunes and put it in the music folder in my SkyDrive. Everything goes well when I download on my phone in t skymusic/skyplayer apps and also when I get the artwork for each song. Then as soon I get around 60-70 songs when I try to open local music it will load for about 25-30 seconds then will boot me off the app. I hope this info helps.

        July 15, 2012 at 12:32 pm

      • Thanks. I will try it. Can you explain are you downloading the songs locally or just create the online link for music on SkyDrive?

        Also, you mentioned that you download the images for the songs, how do you do it?

        Does it behave the same if you don’t download images?

        Thanks

        To get the images all I do is when I’m done downloading the song I will edit info and at the bottom of the screen it says auto load which will fill out the info for the song

        It fills in:
        Song title
        Album title
        Artist
        And then it will give me the album artwork as well
        But if auto load doesn’t work I use the search button right next to it
        So a song will look like this:
        Song title
        05 war.mp3 ( ex. )
        Album title is blank
        And artist is a URL like http://skydrive……..(and so on)
        So I will delete the 05 and .mp3 so that just leaves war
        And then I will tap search and it will give me a list of album covers and so ill choose the one I want.

        Since I have a windows phone it just connects all the song info with Zune and that’s how I can get all the info without even having a Zune account.

        As for trying it without the album covers I will get back to you on that as I will be trying that as soon as I get a chance.

    I am having hard time to get the application to work. I have uploaded songs to skydrive in mp3 format (320 kbps). Sky player, however does not find any music from my skydrive. It’s not even showing the folder, in which the mp3 files are located. It shows other folders. The same problem is appearing with application called skyradio. The official skydrive app plays the files as well as application called easyRing&Music. What is it that I’m doing wrong? I have tried both the free version and the full version of Skyplayer.

    • Do you know what SkyDrive classify this folder as? You can see that on SkyDrive web.

      Try changing the folder type and see if that helps.

        Thanks for the quick answer. I don’t see the folder type on SkyDrive web so I cant’t change it.

        I created a new folder and uploaded mp3 files (with SkyDrive desktop app). I used Windows media player 12 to rip the music from cd to skydrive folder on my desktop computer. Now, I can see the music folder when I go to skydrive from start menu. I also see the files in local music section. However, there is no album information, no artist information. I can play the songs but it seems that the catalog function does not work. What exactly do I need to upload to skydrive? Now I have just uploaded mp3 files.

    Update in regard to my question: Skyplayer app just doesn’t seem to work. I have managed to get two other apps to work like they are supposed to (Cloud music and SkyMusic). These apps are working as long as the folder structure is right. If I upload album art, these two apps also find that. With skyplayer, I can just browse my music files (manually). There’s no art and even the filenames are incomplete in skyplayer. Sometimes the name includes the file extension mp3. I’d like to test skyplayer and maybe purchase. Sadly it just does not function properly in my phone.

    I purchased sky player just recently, but I can’t access it on my Nokia Lumia 710. After I give it permissions it force closes every time. I’ve tried redownloading and rebooting and neither have worked. I need a fix or a refund immediately.

      I have the same problem, when app launches it shuts down, in a Lumia 920, haven’t used it once,

    I would buy it but it doesn’t work for me. Not even the “Try before Buy” works. It seems to ask fro credentials but then never logs in, or returns to home screen on the phone. Suggestions? Ideas ? I’m running it on HTC 8X if that makes any difference.

    How do you move music from the phone to the SkyDrive?
