Ratings and Reviews
Better than the best music app that it controls!
MediaMonkey has been the best music app for the digital music collector for a decade. With MonkeyMote, the student has surpassed the master. Simple, elegant and solid as a rock, we're almost done hassling with technology-everything simply works they way you always wanted it to, but hadn't imagined it yet. Thank you!
I Love the Monkey Head!
Wow what a great way to access your music library and listen while away from computer or like me as a way to run audio in multiple locations in your house by way of a multi room amp without have to schlep back to the computer every time you want to add songs to your playlist, in a word it works slick as monkey ... you know.
fair warning ... when you download and install monkeymote it knows if your music catalog is a mess so spend some time with a music file tagger and clean it up ... took me 5 days ( yeah I have alot of music ) but now it's like I have my own cyberspace music room.
I use monkeymote with Winamp and the reason I gave this App 4 stars and not five are the following
Enque and play button WIPES out all music in your play list VERY annoying and while re queuing is pretty easy (it's a bit frustrating if its a long playlist) it would be nice if that "button" of music death just added the song at the end of the playlist and played it
Also would love to see streaming ability for Winamp with Shoutcast and the ability to stream directly to my iPhone while at home so I can enjoy my music without disturbing everyone in the house.
All in all a great music remote and believe me I am serious about my music and have wasted money on inferior remotes don't waste your money on any other app if your a music head like me this is the one
Dont buy this app. A waste of $2
The plugin you need to download on your computer has a virus and Norton wont let it be installed. So I never got to use it. I want a refund!!
Developer Response ,
That's a false positive. All plugin downloads are digitally signed and 100% malware free.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
