Score:83% If there's one category of application that really shouldn't need to exist, it's music playback, since every computing platform includes this functionality out of the box.
Opening up to a professional set of tutorial screens, Loco Music immediately impresses, with an affinity for dark themes and AMOLED screens, thankfully, as I was reviewing this on the Lumia 1020. Getting going, I wondered what I had to do in order to get Loco Music Player to index all the music I had loaded into the 1020 - I headed for Artists and was most surprised to find that almost all of it was already there, i.e. The two main views, then, showing full width cover art very prettily and then as a thumbnail with the tracks around the current one in context.
As the name perhaps implies (is 'Loco' a reference to 'Local'?), the strength here is in playback of music files on your phone, though there's a link through to OneDrive too, the idea being that you can browse through your Cloud collection and pick off a handful of items for local caching - there's no concept of streaming here, as with Microsoft's Groove Music, but that's OK since OneDrive access here is very much an ancillary function. You'll have noticed the neon green colouring in the screenshots - I liked it, but if it's not to your taste then there are over a dozen different themes to be picked and enjoyed.
Extra functions include a sleep timer (shown below, left) and a comprehensive alpha-sorted set of indexes, by song, album, artist and genre (e.g.
Ultimately though, Loco Music Player is about presenting your music attractively and reliably. Loco Music Player is also fully Windows 10 Mobile-ready, so I'll probably be giving this more of a spin on the Lumia 930 in due course - AMOLED again! Loco Music Player is commercial at £1 or so, but the cost is trivial so, if you like what you see in the screenshots then give it a go.

One of the popular streaming music services, Rdio, has picked up yet another update on Windows Phone, adding in specific support for Windows Phone 8 for the first time. Rdio is a social music service for Windows Phone and the web, and the best way to listen to unlimited, on-demand music everywhere with your friends, and no ads. Of course it would have been nicer to have the WP8 client available when the WP8 handsets were launched, but the client is here now. You can pick up the update from the Windows Store on your handset, or via the AAWP App Directory. However, time spent with music, as well as ways of indexing and accessing it, is a very personal thing and there are a number of third party music player for Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile, each attempting to add their own 'spin' (pun intended) on the genre.
The interface is centred around lists and full-screen artwork and it's only one tap, as shown, to toggle between the two. The volume slider on the right hand screen is mimicked on the cover art view with a pinch on the screen, by the way, so you have full control of playback in either.
Something for everyone, I think, though the dark, neon themes did work beautifully on the AMOLED-screened 1020. But the choice of themes means that even those with LCD-screened phones can find something they find attractive and efficient. The cross-platform service has web based streaming clients, mobile apps, and dedicated desktop applications. I wonder how long until the other streaming services release their updated clients (ahem, Spotify)?


Browse for what to watch, control playback, and adjust volume using your smartphone, tablet, or laptop.
In this case, Loco Music Player, with a wide choice of themes and lightning fast track indexing. After a few seconds more a message popped up confirming that everything had been found - I didn't time it, but it was a lot less than a minute, which is impressive considering that Microsoft's (Groove, née XBox) Music application can take up to half an hour to do the same job (as it uses a background agent). Keeping up to date with Windows Phone 8 is good practice for Rdio, and a solid sign of support for Microsoft's platform. Send your favorites from Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus, Pandora, Spotify, Amazon Prime, your own native videos and photos and more directly to your HDTV with NO software needed and minimal setup required. Even when the core application is pushed out of RAM, you can still play tracks and skip to the next in a sequence.
And when you do interrupt Loco Music Player, even by shutting down the phone and restarting, it carries on at the same point in the same track when you go back into the application, which is impressive.
