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. Bugs and feature requests may be made at the official project page (http://code.google.com/p/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.

    Just the ticket for playing MP3 media served by firefly from my W7 PC. Worked perfectly on my N5

    This app is one of only a few on the market that works with the DAAP proticall. Its allso nice and small. And runs in the background. Even when browsing the web.

    Very bad app! Failed to locate and load my daap library. Try SharePlay instead. At least it managed to play my songs....
