The best MPD interface for iOS

I use a iPhone to access my Raspberry Pi music server running Rune Audio. This app is a dream come true. Ever since Mpod stopped being updated I’ve been missing the ability to shuffle tracks and select random albums from my collection. This app does that and more. Now art appears where it didn’t before and Thank you!!!! Keep up the good work.

Excellent mpd client for iOS

If you’re one of the (apparently few) people looking for an mpd client for iOS, this is the one to get. Nice functionality, good design, and it actually works! Been waiting for an app like this for a long time.

Thank you.

Almost Great

Excellent interface but doesn’t support UPnP and any online music services like Tidal or Spotify. If it did this I would easily give it 5 stars. When the free subscription ends I will unfortunately say goodbye.
