Yeah, it used to be called Metro. Also it's not a media player, it's a sync/management software for your windows phone.


that sucks how it's not an all-in-one...

Why ? why would you need your phone sync tool combined with yoru music player ? they are all in one in that they are all metro and all work together anyway, since they all use the same libraries they don't need to be one massive bloated app, but can be divided into separate smaller purpose built apps. especially since most people won't need the sync software since they sync wirelessly and over the cloud. Cable syncing is getting old fashioned so bloating the media apps with what doesn't belong there in the first place makes no sense.

Windows 8 will work on desktops, so you can run this app on your Desktop and Laptop PCs. I don't see a need for a desktop version.

Its just a shame. Metro apps just suck in my opinion and breaks my flow. It's just annoying I am being forced into using a metro app when I had a nice desktop version previously.

You still will. Do you honestly believe that Microsoft would release Windows Phone 8 without a desktop client? Microsoft still has to support Windows 7 and Mac OS X. They aren't going to break those pre-existing clients and they aren't going to dump those platforms. And any desktop client for Windows 7 (like Zune... probably will still be Zune...) will work just fine on Windows 8.

Not everyone will be running Windows 8.

No one is " forced" to use anything . Install desktop software , un-install apps , set default programs , problem solved .
