MPaD is your iPad remote control for MPD (Music Player Daemon), and as such is the bigger brother of MPoD. Featuring a slick, intuitive user interface, MPaD makes it very easy to browse through your collection, and play the music you want to hear…..
Rated 4/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
This is a great app! I use it to control a vortexbox music server, and think its far superior to the squeezebox server interface its made to run with. I've been using the free mpod app by the same developer, and i think this app is worth the $2.99 for the upgraded interface. I think this app loads my music up faster too, mpod takes about 114 seconds, this app didn't give me a time, but it couldn't have been more than 20 seconds. The only suggestion I have is that there doesn't seem to be a way to view only your current playlist, it's always docked in the upper left and it's kind of small. That being said, I like seeing my playlist as I'm adding to it, something that can't be done in mpod. I also like seeing the artwork as I'm searching.
I'm Very Happy!
I've wanted an app that does this for years, and just discovered mpd and this app today. I can finally access and control my 20,000 song library from my iPad, and have it play on my htpc without having to turn on my tv, deal with a crummy interface, etc.
And the best part is these developers seem to "get it". For example, they have intelligent sorting, so The Beatles show up under "B", not "T". The interface is clean. Album art showed up seamlessly, I understand mpd supports replaygain (haven't looked into that yet) - I think this is the start of a beautiful product!
I gave them 4 stars since this is a recent app and an excellent start and I want to encourage it's adoption, but it's certainly not 5 stars yet - there are still have some bugs to iron out. It crashes when I try to search. It hasn't loaded all of my library yet (not sure if that's due to mpad or mpd, the server). There are probably other minor issues. But overall it is my dream app, and it works well enough (I look forward to a more robust update soon).
One last thing - as noted, this works with a server running on a linux box. My library was already in Linux on my Ubuntu htpc, so I thought it would be easy to get going. I was wrong - setting up the server was a pain. I downloaded it easily enough from Synaptic, but after that it was a lot of effort editing configuration files, creating files and directories and setting permissions and changing owners - it was NOT easy. But there was enough help on the web to get me through it. If you're not at least a little comfortable with the command line, you might want to find a friend who is.
But it's working now, and it's so slick!
This is the perfect mpd frontend for the ipad. Following up my expectations with the app for iphone MPoD, i was pleasantly satisfied. I bought without reading reviews, just knowing it's the same idea as mpod. You've gotta get this if you've got an ipad/mpd setup. i NEVER buy apps, but this is an exception. I'm happy to spend money on it. I'd LOVE to see macbook version of this. wow
