About this app

DAAP Media Player allows you to stream your music from a DAAP share such as mt-daapd (firefly), Rhythmbox, forked-daapd, tangerine, most NAS devices such as FreeNAS, QNAP servers, and older versions of iTunes.

DAAP is a proprietary protocol similar to HTTP developed by Apple for use with iTunes music sharing. Still used by modern versions of iTunes, the computer community has reverse engineered an older version of this protocol for streaming their own music. This application provides this functionality on an Android device.

DAAP Media Player is an open source application on github https://github.com/chrismiceli/daap-client

Features include:
* Stream music without downloading the whole song!
* Search and voice search songs
* Passwords
* Handle multiple servers
* Random/Shuffle and Repeat
* Playlist and Queue support
* Widget
* Home screen shortcut
1. Long press home screen
2. Click Shortcuts
3. Click DAAP - Add Server
4. Enter server information
* Last.fm scrobbler support
- If you have a scrobbler app installed on your phone you can scrobble (disabled by default). Tested scrobblers: Simple Last.fm Scrobbler, and Scrobble Droid.
* Last.fm artist information
* Handle intents of the form daap://server:port#password

INTERNET - to connect to DAAP servers
WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE - to save songs to SD card
READ_PHONE_STATE - to pause on incoming phone call
CHANGE_WIFI_MULTICAST_STATE - to listen for local servers
ACCESS_WIFI_STATE - to know whether to listen on local servers or not.

Very basic. Which would be okay if it worked, but it's unstable. After playing one song it gives an error when trying to play another, need to restart the app to get it working again. Also a major flaw is that when a song finishes it does not automatically play the next one in the playlist.

it does what it says. it could use a visual overhaul and some new features, but it does the basics. however, it needs to be updated to support the features and changes brought to Android since froyo...

Great app. I use it with Rhythmbox on my local network. I like the new look. Works better than the previous time I used it. Thanks for a great, simple, open source, ad free app.
