Mono, thanks to its clean and easy interface, comes to be a sort of unified music center on your device, so to speak. You can look for songs, artists or albums, even biographies, hi-res pics and video clips, and Mono send will send lighting-fast results back, linking to wherever it may fit your search best. Thus Mono crawls Last.fm, Youtube and its own database, in which we can look for, add to our calendar and share future concerts and events. As if this wasn't enough, you can also search for those artists' Twitter accounts.
It's remarkable that, as it couldn't be otherwise, you'd be allowed to listen to the tracks and create your own lists mixing your own files with your Google Music account (where available) and Youtube. It's a great app not only to keep all your favorite artists at hand, but also to discover new ones or share your likings with your friends. Lastly, if we have to highlight a single feature that abridges the aforementioned claims, it would be the "similar" option, which is second to none. Check it out by yourself looking for your favorite groups, you'll be surprised for sure.
The app is free for a week, time more than enough to decide if going pro or not. If you do so, you'll receive an extra free week for your use and enjoyment.

Mono is a music discovery and playback app combining multiple sources into one experience. You get access to the entire world of artists, their releases, their top tracks and their media. You configure and prioritize music sources for playback, including your local files, Soundcloud, Subsonic and of course YouTube - either on your device or on Chromecast. You can also view artist bios, images, concerts and similar artists and build, save and share playlists easily. There are also many ways to automatically build playlists, from top tracks overall, by genre, by country, by tag as well as Last.fm, SoundCloud, Spotify & Billboard charts.
- Contacts - we do NOT get or want access to your contacts but to use your registered emails on your device we need permission to read these account emails. Android categorizes this permission with Contacts, but rest assured we do not request access.
- Calendar - to post concerts
- Microphone - to speak text
- Location - to see concerts in the vicinity
Subsonic is supported for those of you that want to stream your own music. You will need to download the server onto your desktop/laptop (www.subsonic.org) and set it up with your music library.
Last, but by no means least, please provide feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org, especially the negative and creative varieties. We know many of you are using the features successfully but there are a few users who cannot seem to even run the app at all. We have tested on many devices but not every one, so rather than just trashing the app please give us an opportunity to figure out why it won't run for you by sending device specs, ROM version, and as much information as possible as to what is happening. If we then fail to resolve the issue by all means trash it.
