This application is a remote control for the music player daemon (www.musicpd.org).
This application works with every mpd above version 0.14 but to get the best performance and features we recommend to use at least version 0.15 (for playlist performance). Consider updating to the newest version.
This application does not work with Mopidy (2.0.1) because it does not implement the MPD 0.19 protocol correctly but says so to the client.
If you don't know MPD and are looking for a music player for android, we recommend you have a look into Odyssey, which shares the same user interface with this application. (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.gateshipone.odyssey)
The client implements most of the daemons functionality so that full media control and management is possible.
To filter albums this client uses the album artist tag (if available) to filter multiple albums with the same title (e.g. Greatest Hits)
We recommend that your music is tagged with musicbrainz library to get the best experience as the data tags are used to fetch artwork for artists and albums.
