MediaMonkey for Android Supercharges Your Mobile Media Consumption

MediaMonkey for Android Supercharges Your Mobile Media Consumption

Are you a fan of MediaMonkey on your PC? Have you ever wished to have a matching mobile app? In honor of the upcoming release of the fourth version of the desktop client, XDA forum member BulletproofIdeal has now officially undertaken this project.

Available as a work-in-progress beta, development for MediaMonkey for Android is now well underway. With a healthy list of supported and planned features, it’s in your best interest to give the thread and application at least a few glances! In the words of the developer:


Hey all, I don’t know how many of you know about the amazing Windows media player known as MediaMonkey or the variety of features it has (Auto-organize, Tag from web, DLNA support, etc) but thats besides the point. I feel that the one thing this amazing program lacks is a mobile app to go along with it, so with the release of MM4 looming (You can grab the beta here) I’ve decided that I will develop just such an app. Official support has been given to this project by the MediaMonkey developers and more than enough people have expressed interest in this project so I’m going ahead and starting development! Right now only support for music is planned though video may come eventually as well!

—-Planned Features—-

  • MM.db sync and merge
  • Non-native codec support (Ogg, Flac, Ape)
  • Basic library managment (Tag with search, media scanner to load non-native codecs)
  • DLNA control point for MM4
  • DLNA renderer for MM4
  • Lockscreen widget with swipe controls
  • Companion MM4 plugin to handle syncing
  • Skin support

This is a must have for all music lovers out there, so be sure to continue on to the application thread to get started!
