Listen to Your Favorite Music On the Go With Walkman7 for Windows Phone 7
So, you have your Windows Phone 7 unlocked and wanted to find some good apps that you can put in or “side load”. Well, if you are a music fan or if you simply need something to listen to while you are out running/jogging, then XDA member Marvin_S has an app that may be of interest to you. This is a online/offline music player, which will allow you to search for and play music that you do not have as part of your own library. The app will also allow you to create playlists, and even the ability to do off-line playback in case you don’t have a good connection. The app can only be side-loaded, so you will need either Chevron unlocker or some other means to unlock your device before using this app.
If you have any suggestions or feedback, please post them in the thread.
So you just type in what song you are looking for hit search and than tap the song you want to hear from the results that show up. The loading happens in the background (without visual clue’s of when its done) it will start to play after a few seconds. It will keep running under the lockscreen, so its nice if you like to walk and want to hear a certain song but don’t have it on your phone.
You can find more information in the application thread.

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
