What is DroidRemote?

**NEW** a little preview of whats to come in this app http://youtu.be/PwyMpIjafg4

DroidRemote is an Android to Android remote control for music/media playback.

Tested with DoubleTwist player and Spotify. Please let me know what apps you use it for!

Confirmed from a user in USA that it works with Amazon Cloud player as well

Please leave a comment/rating where you let me know what app you use it for

Requirements:
- You need 2 Android devices phone/phone or phone/tablet
- Configure 1 as Server (player) one as Client(remote) (video on support site)
- Complete the setup (video on support site) and start the server/client

What does it do?

Functions implemented now is next, previous, play/pause. And it's all controlled from an AppWidget.

Limitations:
- You can only remote control the server device from another Android device. No iPhone, Blackberry or Symbian.
- Range from client to server device is limited by Bluetooth
- You have to start playback on the player (server) before you can remote control it with DroidRemote

This does not turn your phone into an FM-transmitter!

Use-cases:

In the car:
Connect your server device to an Audio to FM transmitter (Search amazon for products) Tune in your car stereo and voila you have Spotify in your car. The server device can be stowed away in the dashboard.

In your home:
Connect your server device to your Hi-Fi system via AUX cable. Sit in you couch and remote control the playback.

Some of the reason I made this app is the lack of docking stations for Android with remotes (a tleast in the Hi-Fi segment), and that my Car is unable to stream audio over Bluetooth.

So give this app a chance, it is still in Beta so if you have any problems let me know by mail or on the support site.

Thank you.

    Hey, great app! Does exactly as advertised, which is exactly what I needed. It works perfectly with Pandora. Using a Moto X as the client and a Droid 3 as the server. Gonna try it with multiple clients in the near future. Thanks! Edit: Works flawlessly with multiple clients!

    I never write reviews, but for this one I have to say thank you very much. I have a a tablet that I rarely use and making spotify player out if it feels great. I hope in the future there will be option to control spotify more (select playlists, search, etc) and the volume. But great start nevertheless. Why don't you make own device (transform cheapo android pc-on-stick) by that would just have an

    Thanks!! It's exactly what I was looking for. Works great, does what it says on the box. I only had to install it on both devices, and it automatically worked with the built-in Sony music player. I was going to suggest showing metadata on the client device, but I see you are already working on that. Spotify is not available in my region, so hopefully you can also get it done with another (preferab
