Can’t get it to work


Can’t get it to work

Easy and effective


It took about 10 minutes to set up. The app did not automatically detect my computer so I had to enter its IP address manually. Then it all worked. I found the streaming icon on the bottom right, pressed it, and it streams to my iPad Pro. I use flac and it sends up to 96 kHz to the iPad, which is the iPad's limit in any case. I connect to Chord Mojo dac/amp and to fine headphones and it all just works. I only needed to do the installation program on the computer side and it required no further configuration. So this is going to be a very heavily used app. Just what I was looking for.

I like it!


Only four stars? Okay, Four and a Half - I have to leave some room for improvement. It may not be perfect but MonkeyMote is one of the best music controller apps that I have tried. No, I have not tried them all - not nearly... but this one is good enough that I do not feel compelled to look for something better.

It looks good and is fairly easy to navigate. I have not seen any issues with its interface with Foobar - this is good... It works just fine on my 1st gen iPad, too bad it doesn't work on my 1st gen iPod Touch. Oh well. Yes, I tend to keep stuff forever, so I do notice things like this.

One thing that I like is that it is very fast. Scrolling through the library and selecting albums and tracks is very quick. Nice!

It does have its little quirks to get used to, like any software. Recommendations for improvements would take some study. I might try to make a list some day, until then I just enjoy the music. :)
