Ratings and Reviews




Not useful for me


I wanted an MPD controller replacement for the unloved mPad application but this isn't the one for me. The interface isn't intuitive even for an experienced MPD user and, after I figured out how to load my library, I found that the library needs to re-load from scratch every time I want to use the app. I learned from another user that this is not expected behavior, but it has been repeatable in my case. With a large collection, the re-loading can take a very, very long time, with the app unusable until the loading has completed. I also had some freezing issues and failures to recognize that I had configured a device. Further, album art doesn't display by default and I couldn't get it to display at all even after linking my music directory to the app in the settings.

The developer responded to a request for technical support. While he was willing to help me out, I think there is little he can do to help because the collection size is the limiting factor.

For smaller collections, this is an attractive app and probably useful enough once you figure out the setup. If you are a music hoarder like me, however, this isn't what you need. As there doesn't seem to be a preview version, you have to pay up front and hope that it works out for you. I have added a star to this review because the developer responded to my inquiry and made at least an effort to address the issues.

Excellent replacement for MPad

No one receiving

I think this app is overall an excellent replacement for the no longer working MPad (or MPod). It looks great, has a lot of functionality, seems very stable, and was easy to get set up to work.

It does need a couple of tweaks—to catalogue artists that start with a “The” (as in “The Beatles”) under “B” rather than “T”, and to better handle compilations—but I expect those will get worked out with user input. If they do, my rating will change to 5 stars. (My mistake, there is an “ignore articles” feature!—rating duly changed.)

If you use an MPD player like Volumio or Rune, give it a go and help it to be made into the ideal iOS controller. I think it’s pretty much there now.
