Take a break from the top 40's radio stations and discover a new way to listen to music. The Hype takes The Hype Machine ( to the Windows Phone. Browse and stream thousands of songs from Hype Machine's hand picked catalog of top music blogs. 

* Familiar Hype Machine UI
* Stream music from various playlists (Latest, Popular, Subscription, Loved)
* Favorite songs and blogs
* Search 
* View original posts of each song

App is now FREE! I've gotten a lot of confused reviews between the free and paid versions, so to make amends, I'm making it just a single app. 

Lots of bug fixes with new features including:
* A UI overhaul 
* Now Playing view 
* Integration with music hub 

What's new in v2.0
* Background music playing now enabled thanks to Mango (Finally!)
* Integration with volume control. You can control playback using the volume controls in/outside the application
* Many performance improvements and bug fixes
* More settings: different popular filters, shuffled loved playlist (@CHWEX)
* The scrub has been improved (@aeronez - you can drag the timeline back and forth to fast-forward or rewind)

Update v1.2 
* Fixed bug where the first playlist wouldn't load if it required login credentials

Update v1.1
* @Anthony - Name of track currently playing displayed below scrub. (Most likely will be redesigned for 2.0)
*@Player880844668 - Ability to rearrange playlist ordering in the settings 
* gif format now supported. All images are now displayed (even though most of them are the default "missing" hypem image)
* @MikeByke - Search moved to main playlist
* @ncs48 - Link to account creation page added
* Minor tweaks

    I like the app a lot, considering I didn't think the windows phone would have it. However, I'm facing a peculiar problem where my favorites playlist won't populate when I turn shuffle on. This app could also improve by adding features that exist on the website, like 'no remixes'

    This app is too slow and is falling of the website features. Again, it is TOO slow 🐌 🐌 🐌 and crashes a lot!

    I wish I could give it more stars.

    Layout is OK. Can't login with Facebook acct like I do on the website and that's a major bummer. Love Hype Machine, though.

    I love hype machine. I hate this app. It won't even open, it just crashes right after it begins loading all of hypem's goodies. Its like its teasing me! So frustrating.

    Such a well designed app for hypem but really just needs one more update to fix up issues with the now playing page getting lost when you background the app and return.

    Decent third party client. Only complaints I have I would greatly appreciate an update for. Feed does not include songs from followers and friends. As one of my main sources of music I would also like to see it NFC compatible. Other than that only small glitches
