Works like a charm.

Control, volume and search work fine. I enjoy the track details provided when you tap on the song that's playing.

Best of all, the developer is quick to respond to questions and is respectful (When it's user error to boot!). $1.99 well spent. (IOS 15.4.1)

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.
