This is the app for those who manage and play their music collection via the Kodi/XBMC media center. Unlike other Kodi/XBMC remote control apps, this app is solely focused on handling your music collection.

* Local favorites: Create a list of favorite artists, albums, songs, radio stations, etc.
* Shortcuts panel: Provides customizable quick actions, i.e., wake up the server, switch between servers, fade out the music, etc.
* Widget for quick control (from the lock screen, by force touch on the app icon, or from the notification center)
* Browse your music collection offline - it is cached entirely on your device!
* Smart search: search artist, albums, and titles at the same time
* Fuzzy search: e.g., "Robby" will also find "Robbie"
* Context aware search results - for example, search for a title, and open the related artist and his albums
* Artist and album details - view the Kodi info or browse Google, Wikipedia, YouTube, or Amazon for infos about your favorite music
* Display the lyrics of the current song - even synchronized. Show lyrics of the CU LRC add-on, embedded lyrics, or google for lyrics

Further features:
* Different views of your music library: "Artists", "Albums", "Songs", "Compilations", "Folders", "Playlists", “Recent Music”
* Access to music add-ons – play radio, podcasts, etc.
* Resize the "Now Playing” panel by swiping up/down or pinching
* Adjustable cover size, up to full device width on iPhones
* Extensive sorting options
* Genre filter - works everywhere (even with last added/played tracks/albums)
* Match your iTunes playlists with your Kodi/XBMC music library to play them on Kodi/XBMC
* Sort, edit, and clear the play queue
* Play queue modes: Shuffle, Repeat single track, Repeat all, Party Mode
* Show codec, sample rate, and bitrate of currently playing track
* Party restrictions - only allow adding single tracks to the play queue
* Play from here - play the current track and all following tracks of its album/playlist
* Different queue options: Queue at the end or queue after the currently playing track
* See the remaining playing time and total number of tracks of the play queue
* Shows running library scans/cleanups
* Wake-on-LAN (WOL) the Kodi/XBMC server (manually or on startup)
* Server operations: Shutdown, restart, suspend, hibernate, rescan music library, clean music library
* Active ongoing development, strongly based on customer feedback (join us at

Extensive Device Support:
* Optimized for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus (including split screen mode in landscape view)
* Supports multitasking on iPad (slide over on iPad Air/Air 2, split view on iPad Air 2)
* Adapted for iPad Pro
* Well-suited for slower Kodi devices (like Raspberry PI) and large music collections, because the entire music collection is cached locally

The app requires a Kodi/XBMC installation connected to the wireless network. Its IP-address can be set manually, or zero-conf can be used to automatically find Kodi/XBMC in the network. Officially supported are Kodi Krypton, Jarvis, Kodi Isengard, Kodi Helix, XBMC Gotham, and XBMC Frodo.


Thanks for using the app - we hope it makes your Kodi/XBMC music listening experience really enjoyable.

Ratings and Reviews

Just the music!


XMBC/Kodi tries to do it all, muddling the interface. This app focuses on the music. Love the cached library, ease of queuing, but most of all the widget for super quick control of Kodi. Two suggestions (sorry :-) first: tap & hold an album etc to get an add to queue shortcut, second: shuffle albums (tracks in albums are in order). The iPad app really shines with a view of whatever I want. Like a list of Albums and then Artists all at the same time. Usually I can't make up my mind and go back and forth. No more. Also pretty nice artist info feature-- can read about artists from multiple sources

Developer Response

Glad you like the app :) Shortcuts for queuing and more are already on the todo list, thanks for the suggestion of shuffling albums. Feel free to write to for more ideas.

In love with an app..


This app was made with absolute love, you can tell. Markus has tamed my huge music library with this app. Unlike ever before, I can now play my favorite music and even music I haven't plaid in years SIMPLY because it's finally so accessible! Some of the best money I have spent in all my years on the App Store.

2 requests:
1. User changeable background within the app.
2. Karaoke. Please consider letting us control our karaoke libraries as well. I understand that 16.x doesn't support karaoke, but many of us are still on 15.x simply because we love our karaoke too much to upgrade.

Thanks a ton, Markus!

Developer Response

Hi DJMacDaddy,
thank you for the praise and your input! About the user changeable background, I'm not sure which background you are referring to. About the Karaoke, which addon do you use? It depends if this addon provides some remote interface if this is technically possible. If you post to the forums or send me an email at, we can further discuss this. Best regards, Markus

Worth every penny

Good layout. Simple yet does everything. I only wish that in the future, the background color can be changed.
