MPDluxe is a remote controller for MPD, an open-source networked music playing system which can run on a variety of UNIX- and Linux-based systems. MPDluxe allows you to browse the music collection and saved playlists on the MPD server, play, pause and skip tracks, add tracks to and edit the current playlist, search the MPD database and control the playback mode. MPDluxe can handle music collections of any size, and is ready to work as soon as it connects to the MPD server.

What's New

Version 1.8

New zoomable index bar in browser views, for navigating large directories; when dragging on the alphabetical index on the right of the screen, drag left to zoom in to the second letter. (On an iPad, drag up.) In the chronological view, this zooms in on the months of the year.
Playlists can now be added to the current queue in their entirety.
Some bugs have been fixed.
Also, better iPhone X display compatibility.

Good app, with one flaw for me


I was unable to contact support from the web pages, but this app works fine so long as there is a router on the network. If I connect my iPhone to private network with just the server and no default gateway it doesn’t connect

If I add a default gateway, all my internet traffic is hijacked by the private network.

I’d love to contact support but there seems to be no info

Great MPD app - hope more features are coming


This app is so much better than the MPD app I'd been using on my iPhone. Like the notes say, it doesn't take forever loading the catalog every time you use it. It is really sleek and simple to use. I do hope that there are more features in the works. For instance, there should be an easy way to add an entire album with a single tap/swipe. Also it would be great to browse by more data points (e.g. by artist, or album.) Thanks for making a great new MPD app.



Can't be easier- spins right up. Easy to use interface, solid and quick performance. I apologize for my earlier review (didn't see it appear, but changing it now) that claimed it didn't work- was my own fault. If anyone has a problem with the app not connecting to their MPD server, be sure you enable your MPD server to listen on external interfaces first check your MPD conf file. (App dev- you should add this helpful hint on a cxn failure to avoid confusion)
