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! (important note: the music itself is not copied to the device and cannot be played on the 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, search the web, or browse 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 search the web 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 6/7/8, iPhone 6/7/8 plus, and iPhone X (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 XBMC 12 and 13 (Frodo and Gotham) and Kodi 14-18 (Helix, Isengard, Jarvis, Krypton, and Leia).


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