Simple DAAP client
Description
This application is a simple DAAP client. It is possible to listen to the delivered music from the daapd server(like mt-daapd, not containing itunes ). The server can be detected without any configuration (that is bonjour). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FriyARCDxOQ
Music plays for a minute, then stops...

Love how quickly it finds my Firefly iTunes server. All content listed correctly. However, when I select a file to play, it only plays for a minute and then aborts. I have to go back and start from scratch at that point. Like the other reviewer said: doesn’t fully work as is, needs polishing.
A simple player
by Anonymous68543573 on 2019/04/27 12:36
Works fairly well, works a bit slow when loading all artists. I think maybe it's making a new library request to the daap server each time. Less memory used but slower. Will not work with iTunes 7+ shares, but that's due to apple's authentication.
Crashes when you select song

Free and Buggy

For the connection to my iTunes home-share, it throws an error that cannot be clicked because is it behind the working grey screen and not in focus. For the connection to my NAS, when I select a song it immediately throws a connection error but proceeds to slowly download the song in the background and eventually plays it. It seems like a good college project that could use a little more testing and polishing.
Unusable on modern devices

It’s hard to believe, but this is the only app on the App Store that allows you to play music off of an iTunes DAAP Server. Unfortunately, it is very out of date. The last update it received allowed it to run in the background (back when that was a new iPhone OS feature). It doesn’t have iPhone 6 (Plus) support, or iPhone 5 screen support, iPad support, or even Retina Display support. And being now on iOS 8, it opens up, but that’s about it. Please make a new app, hell, even charge for it. People would pay a dollar or two for an app with this functionality.
Does not work
by Forti55im0 on 2013/12/15 20:22
App opens ok but crashes while connecting to Miro. Not useable.
Almost works
by Marty from penguin city on 2013/04/14 21:30
Connects to daap share from rhythm box in Ubuntu and shows all track info and genres, etc. Unfortunately, it won't play anything. It just returns an error about the server not responding to request for music.
Junk
by MrWizardno2 on 2013/02/04 13:34
Force closes on iPad 4 on app startup.
Great
by JOOOOOOOOOOOSH on 2012/09/12 02:25
Works really well, and very simple too.
Doesn't work.
by JaysonLarose on 2012/08/30 13:45
I try to connect to an iTunes library, and it just crashes. Not a whole lot more to say than that.
good enough in a pinch
by rem736 on 2012/05/02 17:27
it's really basic, but it works in a pinch. i don't even mind that the listing is all text-based. not displaying album art only serves to speed it up. but password support would go a long way. and (previous song)/(play/pause)/(next song) controls would be nice.
Alright
by init1 on 2012/04/03 04:44
The interface isn't that great, but it works.
Work fine, but...
by ron.blancarte on 2012/03/25 12:36
This app gets props for being the only DAAP client for the iPhone. It also does its job, playing music. But in interface leaves a lot to be desired. No audio interface controls, no search. Kind of klugey. But in the end, it does it's job, and it is the only working player. That counts for something.
Not bad but could use a new GUI
by Randre Wright on 2012/02/28 02:48
It works! Not bad. I wish the gui was a little better with seek controls like Ampache.
Works well
by Joe pilot2 on 2012/02/13 04:29
Works fine with my mt-daapd server on my home wireless network. It plays in the background as you run other apps. Can only browse by genre then artist then album then song, so if you know the artist or album or song but not the genre then you have to do some browsing to find what you want. But what do you want for free?
Works great!
by PipaFamily on 2011/12/02 22:05
Using it with FreeNAS and it finds everything and does run in the background. No complaints - especially for the price!
Simple Enough
by Future ED-209 on 2011/12/02 04:59
Works well, nothing fancy. Would be nice for it to work on the background.
Close to great
by lifestorie11 on 2011/11/13 03:42
Would be great if it had password support
Excellent client!!
by 5starrocks on 2011/11/04 00:32
Worked like charm !! Keep up good work
No password support.
by K-W-D on 2011/10/06 02:27
This app is unusable for me because it has no password support. It did find my server though, so I gave it 1 star. I guess "simple" really means simple. Would love it try it again if it gets password support.
Won't play lossless audio.
by joshuahandrich on 2011/07/06 14:42
Finds my daap share fine (firefly on freenas), browses it fine, but crashes whenever I play a file. Make it work with lossless music and I'd even pay for it.
Useless
by P'OodOod on 2011/05/13 22:09
Won't connect to the advertised server it lists, gives ipaddr as 0.0.0.0. Explicitly connecting to the proper server addr works, but immediately crashes when playing any song. Same behavior on iPad and iPhone. BTW, iTunes finds the daap server just fine and and actually works.
Simple and awesome!
by tdatu on 2011/05/13 09:06
Just need a password support, but this excellent app just works.
Free and works
by jernkuan on 2011/05/02 02:22
Free and works ouf of the box! Looking forward for support of password. Willing to pay for this.
Not bad
by Rondadams on 2011/03/21 06:14
Seems to work well but could be improved.
track order scrambled
by cmrddy on 2011/02/09 00:25
doesn't sort by track number so it is impossible to play an album in order. great ui, cool proof of concept, but completely useless to me.
Works with Firefly daap
by Yocum137 on 2010/11/16 15:18
A couple skips, but a very good start. Keep it up!
Simply the best
by Normalex007 on 2010/11/09 02:52
Works best with mt-daapd, glitches with rhythmbox. Ubuntu rules.
Great
by Paul Preston on 2010/10/03 12:24
Great app.... Great start.... please keep it up.
Review app
by MCPATACA on 2010/09/27 04:19
This a good app for daap service.
Great App
by wkelley70 on 2010/07/14 03:05
This is a great app. Please continue to develop it. Simple DAAP works. I installed FireFly Server on my DNS-323 and Simple DAAP connected instantly, without issue.
Been waiting for this app a long time
by iallen on 2010/07/03 22:13
Great v1 release !! Gives new meaning to my firefly server;) My wishlist: 1. Backgrounding 2. iPod style navigation w/ search etc Keep up the good work
Awesome in principle...
by SirRobert on 2010/07/01 19:45
Couple of wish list items: 1. Add ability to specify a server and port! ;-) 2. Playlist support! Do these two things and iPod touch users won't need to have on-board music anywhere there's wi-fi!
Awesome app so far
by JoeMFBriley on 2010/05/31 22:04
Great to stream from a firefly server on my friends main computer to his iPod touch that's hooked to the stereo in the garage.
