App Watch: MusiXmatch Lyrics Player

In apps with wacky names today we have MusiXmatch Lyrics Player, a Metro app for Windows 8 that lets users find and match lyrics to their favorite music tracks.

This highly rated and highly popular app is a one stop music solution. Fans can identify music through either a microphone or with the MusicID, and access millions upon millions of lyrics. You can also play music within the app — supported file formats include non-DRM files like MP3, WMA and M4A.

Here is a selection from the official description:

“With over 6 million officially licensed lyrics localized in 18 languages, musiXmatch allows users to access the largest lyrics database in the world. Featuring a fully integrated music player, song tracker, and powerful lyrics search engine, musiXmatch is the best way to find lyrics on your device.”

The free app also lets users browse the top viewed lyrics by country, and options to purchase the music directly from Amazon, iTunes and 7-Digital are also on offer. A recent update even integrated a YouTube video player into the app.

When it comes to the UI, the design is on the simple side of things, yet highly effective. This app is optimized for touch, and works perfectly on desktop Windows 8 versions as well as ARM powered ones, including the Surface RT.
