Exactly what I was looking for! No hardware required (other than a pc, wifi router and android phone ofc). Installed winamp plugin on pc, ran this app and it worked instantly, no configuration at all. Simple as that. Remote works from every room in the house. 5/5 for ease of use, functionality & for being completely free. Huge thanks to David Malzner, you saved me from buying a stupid infrared USB remote :)
Needs better queuing system I'm looking for an app that will do proper file queuing - not just move the file beneath the current file in the playlist. WinAmp has a beautiful enqueue feature (Alt+q), why can't this app utilize that instead of moving the song beneath the currently playing song in the playlist? This is a pain because as you're looking through your playlist and finding songs to play and "Enque" one, the song moves from where it is in the playlist to a new location (below the currently playing song), messing up any order you have in your playlist. It would be nice to have a separate screen with your queued songs, and allow you to move the songs around in your queue, while keeping your playlist as is and just play songs from your queued list if you create one. Fix this and I will give it 5 out of 5... If anyone knows of an app that will do what I'm looking for, let me know, but this one doesn't do this yet, hope it will in the future... I'd gladly pay for that feature if it would work well.
Works great! The app works great but could use a little polish. A UI makeover would make this a 5 star app. The oversized control buttons make it less likely to press the wrong one by mistake but they are pretty ugly. The dev did a great job otherwise. One thing to note: don't make the same mistake I did and wonder why it was not connecting. Add a Windows Firewall exception on the computer with Winamp or turn off the Windows Firewall completely if you're behind a home router with its own NAT firewall and don't need it.
Nice app, really nice. Too bad that WinAmp is a dead platform going forward. But for now, this app is really great. Main pros: - Automatically detects server. "Just worked" for me. - Multiuser headed support. Means that one server can be controlled via multiple phones/tablets. Again, It "just works" (except as noted below in cons). As a change is made on one phone, the song selection changes on all others automatically. Very cool! Main cons: - Only supports portrait mode. Oh, my, what a gaffe! I put a tablet on the wall in several of the rooms of my house. I want LANDSCAPE MODE because the security cameras are all landscape mode devices and these tablets all use another android app to view the cameras. David, PLEASE add landscape mode! - Poor GUI scaling for tablets. App targets phones. Need "tablet GUI mode" taking advantage of increased tablet real estate. Example: enlarge slider buttons, etc. - Volume control is not seamless multiuser. If one person changes volume on one phone, the volume control is not adjusted automatically on all units. This app is within a stones throw of being a home run!
Does the job! Looks horrible! Finally an app that does what it should. - Super quick and responsive - Runs via a winamp plugin rather than needing installation of a server application on pc/desktop. - Allows the adding of songs from library (unlike 'RemoteControlForWinamp'). But looks so fugly! Fix that and you have a winner
Awesome App..BUT! this is an amazing app but lacks a good widget! there are only two controls in the widget! play/pause and fwd track! :| If the widget has all the basic controls + if the volume buttons of the phone are in sync with the app then its wonderful! Also please change the User interface!!! :D make it a little interesting! Wonderful App though! :) loved it! i always wanted an app like this! :D i would definitely give this app 5 stars if the changes are made! :)
