Have you ever found yourself a couple of feet away from your computer, tired of the currently playing song, but too lazy to actually get up and change it? Fear not, with the MediaMonkey Remote, this is history! *
The MediaMonkey Remote is, as the name implies, a remote for MediaMonkey, the popular media player for Windows. The remote itself runs on most Android devices, both phones and tablets.
You'll find some interesting screenshots here.
The Android app can be downloaded and installed here:
Server version 2.4:
- Server, Windows installer (recommended)
- Server, zipped file

This app is provided for free, and has been created by a single, hungry student over more than a year, and it is still updated and maintained. If you like the app, please consider making a donation.
If you have any suggestions for me, UserVoice is a very easy way of letting me know (and looking at other user's suggestions): Go to UserVoice.
To use the MediaMonkey Remote, you need to install the server program on the computer running MediaMonkey, and the Android app on the Android device you want to use as a remote control.
- If you don't already have MediaMonkey, download and install it from here: MediaMonkey downloads. (The remote works with both the free version and the pro version!)
- Download and install the MediaMonkey Remote Server. (See "Downloads".)
- Now, you may need to restart your computer and/or start MediaMonkey with administrative rights before the server will work properly.
- Download and install the Android app. (See "Downloads".)
- If you're lucky, the app will automatically detect the server when you start it (if the server is running, that is). If it doesn't, press the menu button on your device, and select "Settings". From here, you can click "Autodetect server", or manually input IP address and port (which can be found on the server window).
- You're good to go!
