LyrAMP Music Player is a free music player app for Windows 8 that shows lyrics of songs that are playing. In addition to lyrics, it can also download album art, artist information, and much more information about the song from the internet.
This is a free music player for Windows 8 with a difference. It stands apart from the sea of music player apps on the Windows App Store because of its ability to accurately show various kinds of information related to the currently playing track, when your Windows 8 device is connected to the internet. The app when launched, presents a clean interface that allows you to play the tracks stored in your Music library folder. The tracks can be played easily by clicking on them, and these music tracks are shown as in a list format on the right side of the screen, and you can click on any of these tracks to begin their playback.
The LyrAMP Music Player ensures that the playback of songs is smooth. The track that you select for playback will appear at the top when the playback has been initiated. If your music track does not have any album art, LyrAMP will automatically display it for you (if your Windows 8 device is connected to the internet).
Apart from fetching the correct album art, the LyrAMP Music Player can also fetch a lot of other data related to your song when your device is connected to the internet. If you look towards the left side of the screen, you will be able to see..
