I’m looking for a way to manage my Xbox cloud music without using the (horrendous) Windows 8 Music App.
Some of my albums have synced to the cloud, and I DON’T want this. Because now, the albums that are in the cloud won’t play on my Surface if there’s no internet connection, even though I already have those albums on the Surface’s storage. Why is the Music App telling me I can’t play local storage in the app (except by going “open file”) instead of trying to default to streaming??
Basically I want to take EVERYTHING out of my Xbox Music Cloud. It’s a massive headache and I want nothing to do with it. I’ve tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling it about 10 times, I’ve even blown away everything and done the huge reset with Windows RT, but still, somewhere in the cloud, there’s a list of music that my devices have sync’d and I don’t want that.
I don’t know if Microsoft read these forums, but they should be ashamed at the condition this app was released in. It’s truly awful, and yes, infinitely worse than iTunes, which I don’t like either.
