Ratings and Reviews
Great Remote, just needs iWatch app
I use it all of the time for basic controls and library navigation. iPhone and iPad both work great. I wish It had remote controls on the iWatch. Only thing I remember was that I had problems with adding things to a playlist but I need to go back and try that again.
Update, Won't connect
After a lot of experimenting,trial and error, and re-installing the plugin into the PC It finally showed up in foobar2000 and is now working.
This is a terrible app that requires a lot of computer know how to even try to use. You have download plugins to your computer and type in DOS commands to find IP address and still doesn't work. No detailed step by step instructions that I can find. Won't even find my network automatically.
Developer Response ,
You need to have Bonjour installed on the PC for the automatic discovery to work. There's no need to use the command line, the IP address is shown in the plugin configuration dialog.
The best Foobar2000 controller for iOS
Despite the cutesy name, MonkeyMote has been and is the premiere iOS native app for Foobar2000 network control. That it continues to be developed and supported by the creator speaks volumes about the project. One day Peter may build rich network control into the Foobar iOS app, but until then, MonkeyMote is the best solution available.
