MM for the Windows Tablet App

Post by misseltoeholly » Tue Aug 26, 2014 1:06 am

I'm completely new to touch screens and tablets, and to Mediamonkey, so I'm not even sure where my problems begin. I'm definitely a mouse and keyboard kind of gal.

I download the windows app, and I successfully imported my videos, and folders with music, but it seems that MM does not recognize I have audio files.

I can't make playlists with music, I add songs using the "add to playlist" button but it will not save. Songs will appear and play in the "now playing" and I can make empty playlists, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to get the songs on to the playlist.

I have folders in MM, with music, but the "all music" playlist has 2 flies....like it doesn't recognize it even has audio files, even though they play.

I have found lots of could be answers, but they all pertain to the regular windows version that has nice menus etc that I just can't find in this touch screen version.

What am I doing wrong?

I can't really help you, as I don't have a tablet. Are you talking about Android or Windows RT?

The MM8 is a beta App that is due for a major overhaul. Unfortunately that's a long time coming.

Yes, 10 months now and counting since we were told that a major update was imminent... I'm beginning to think "he's dead, Jim"...

He is alive and ticking, but we are not satisfied with quality. So until we get satisfied new version will not be released.

Sorry but we do not publish half done apps. MAin problen is that Modern UI very much depend what will Windows 9 bring :(

In that case, we shouldn't expect a new version of MM8 until Windows 9 is formally released by Microsoft?
So not until Spring 2015 at least...
