A year later, I've tried so many DLNA/UPnP apps, bubble, allcast, localcast, ginko, mediahouse, and I forget the rest, but they all were horrible. While the interface of Monkey could use some cleanup, playback compatibility of video and audio is unsurpassed on my samsung galaxy tab2 and Pioneer SMA3 network speaker. I can play FLAC, MP3, MP4, AVI, WMV, MKV, every kind of file so far has not been refused. Over half of these will NOT play on my HDTV HDMI Sony and Samsung BD DLNA players on my LAN. FAIL! I NEVER pay for ANY app, but I would pay for Monkey. AWESOME! Playback codec compatibility as good as a HTPC, but simpler. Try this one first and then you might be able to skip the rest, and the pain and frustration.
Good for multiroom It is easy to use for multi room audio/video, probably the best iv found so far as simple to use and automatically finds devices. Would be better if the seeker bar worked and could fast forward and rewind. Also it is unable to find anything on my server.
Decent Some strange development decisions in this app. Works well. The central concept is novel.
Works as promised, one of the best I have tested so far.
This works. Consistently finds my devices and files. Consistently plays them on the selected device.
Works as expected Works as well as I'd have expected a monkey to work.
* layout improvements.
* bug fixes.
