Jukeboxer, certainly is a good Windows 8 social music player app, and is one of the best medium to share your playlist with friends you want. Play back controls work well, and multi-select helped me to create playlist quickly. Although, including a feature which lets friends also listen the playlist would have made the app a lot more better. Also if you switch from Jukeboxer to another app, the song pauses. So you need to keep it snapped to right or left side of screen to keep the songs running. All in all, a good free Windows 8 app.
