MPaD is your iPad remote control for MPD (Music Player Daemon), and as such is the bigger brother of MPoD. Featuring a slick, intuitive user interface, MPaD makes it very easy to browse through your collection, and play the music you want to hear from a large collections of artists, albums and songs.

Note that MPaD is not a stand-alone application: it will only work in combination with MPD, and it doesn't play music on your iPhone. If you don't have an MPD server running in your home (which usually runs on Linux) then MPaD will not provide any value to you.

Customer Reviews

The only choice for MPD I found, but a good one!

If you're running MPD and want a remote control app, this is a fine choice overall, and the only choice available on iPad that I could find. The design is attractive and there are a lot of useful features, such as artwork download and integrated artist lookup. I find that it is faster to use this app than to use the built-in web interface to MPD that Volumio offers on my Raspberry Pi.

Simply awful ... with no alternative

I've used MPaD for about a year and a half. The device I target is a Bryston BDP-2 which is essentially a pre-packaged mpd Linux box.

MPaD has always been flaky, but more recently it's gotten to the point that I have to delete the entire app regularly so that it's local data store gets erased before I can even see the music. The BDP-2 knows what it has, every time I've manually run maps queries it is responding reasonable, and the 2-3 other MPD controller applications that I've run have no problem.

MPaD, on the other hand is completely confused. It's also quite slow (I have about a thousand albums).

Great app with just one issue

Great way to control the Linux-based music servers. Only thing that is a bit irritating is that, despite selecting 'None' on the Shake Action option, it clears the playlist every time the iPad is put down any way other than very gently. 'None' should mean no action at all if you shake the iPad.

Five stars other than this but I'm sure it'll be fixed next update.

Great job, keep updating it.....
