Sneak peek at how you can play music using Cortana and Style Jukebox

Cortana, the Windows Phone new personal assistant, does many useful things; Instead of searching for something you ask Cortana – so if you want to know what the weather forecast is, how many pounds are in a kilo or when Jim’s birthday is, you’ll ask and Cortana will give you the answer.

We are working on integrating Style Jukebox with Cortana so you can play and control your music with your voice. This version is currently available only through our Beta channel (until 8.1 will be released publicly), but we will be more than glad to give access to it.

What can you say to Style Jukebox (‘Jukebox’)?

  • Play a specific track, album, artist or playlist
  • Add a specific track, album or artist to queue
  • Basic playback control: stop, resume, go next, etc.
  • Ask what song is playing and what song is next
  • Search your music library

To get your hands on Style Jukebox with support for Cortana:

Check out the video below with a DEMO of how Style Jukebox works with Cortana.

It’s the hands free way to play and control your music. Perfect for when you’re driving, jogging or just not in the mood for typing.

Looking forward for your feedback and for the final version!

Agile Metronome is Back – and Amazingly Accurate

Almost three years ago I published my first Windows Phone 7.0 app – Agile Metronome. It was one of the first metronomes on the platform and quickly became the most downloaded one. It had two nice – while not very metro – graphical themes, ability to set the tempo by tapping on the circle and was reasonably accurate.

Agile Metronome Classic Theme Agile Metronome Sky Theme

Then something had happened – Microsoft released Windows Phone 7.5 aka Mango. It was a legendary system update with great new features, but at the same time it broke both my popular apps – Accurate Tuner and Agile Metronome. I‘ve resolved the more pressing Accurate Tuner issue and described it on my blog (part 1, part 2), but the metronome was broken too. Distribution of system events in Mango was less regular and predictable than in WP 7.0 and the metronome started to tick irregularly.

I wasn’t able to dedicate time to fix it back then, so the metronome started to accumulate low-star reviews and after some time I pulled it from the Marketplace.

Now, it’s back! Last week, Microsoft chose Accurate Tuner Pro for Red Stripe Deals and it motivated me to revamp the internals of Agile Metronome. I haven’t make changes to its design yet and I agree that it is not modern at all. But it’s very accurate now – probably the most accurate metronome in the Store.

Agile Metronome DownloadDespite the heavy animations, it approaches 0.001 sec. accuracy on faster WP 8.0 multi-core devices. Its accuracy on single-core WP 7.8 devices is less stellar, but it is still usable. Just the first generation WP 7.0 devices with 1.0 GHz Snappdragon S1 with Scorpion core and Adreno 200 (Samsung Focus anyone?) and Lumia 610 may stumble.

In the coming weeks I plan to add simpler, more battery-friendly and more mature graphic themes, in addition to other improvements.

Agile Metronome Beta was among the first apps using AdDuplex network:
