I don't think so, but I had made an entry for it: http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=11830

When MMA gets final stable release than real work start on including such features like you pointed here. I'm not telling that all would be included but after basic functionality is done and hammered new ones are added. I personally use MMA as only playback device in my car.

After updating sync rules they will be used on next sync, but they are not enforced on connected device.
I added http://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=11895 to cover that.

I like the organized non-chaotic set up compared to my stock music app and that I can sync it with my MM4 library to keep it as is on the computer, but it's missing some features that I've been spoiled with by the new stock and now don't know if I can live without... Features I've noticed include advanced auto equalizer, air gestures, voice control(kinda important when driving), and most important to me the ability to play via Bluetooth(nearby devices) without leaving the app.

Have problems/concerns with the Wi-Fi sync, when I click sync I have no idea on the progress as I do when syncing from the PC, also its set to auto sync and never did anything for syncing after fixing an organization rule.

I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Android 4.3.

MMA is simply amazing.
Since i have discovered i simply gave up my iphone and turned to an Android phone with MMA being 90% of the use of my phone !!

I am an old user of MMW, mainly to qualify songs, get album art and rate it. MMA would be fantastic if there was:
1.a possibility to download and tag automatically a song with an album art (like the "getting album art from the web from the MMW version) but i recognise : not easy to do on Android UI.
2. More properties that can be edited on the phone that the obvious ones. Comments, see playcount, see last playdate...
3. i d lke to "flag" songs to rework some properties "later" (in MMW!!) such as getting a better album art, change spelling of title..themore i can do on MMA the less i have to do on windows.
4. The rewind/fast forward cursor deserves better treatment: it is quite tough to get it to work on first move because 50% of times my finger lands on the "song title" and moves to next song.

that is it for now.

Again: amazing work guys, keep going !

I want to get rid of the annoying expiry messages. It's not funny being outdoors listening when MM expires. Please place a paid beta in the play store - payment should be valid for the final version, though.

MMA use the Android Media library system and depends on it to refresh when new content is added outside of a MMA wifi sync. This process can be slow. I believe the next MMA will have a force rescan option. I also believe you can circumvent the library by using Folders to navigate to your files.

As for Playlists, anytime you see a list of files you can select them (long press on file, then select applicable files) and then add to Playlist (use Playlist button).

Lowlander, thanks again for your knowledge and insight.

I decided to get answers myself and tried a Nook. After installing the MM app and inserting a micro card, I tried to muddle my way thru. I was able to get the Nook to read the card that only had 700+ tracks...no folders, no playlists, just tracks. No problem being able to use the app to see Artists, Albums, Tracks, etc. I couldn't figure out how to create a playlist with the tracks, but maybe you can't. I need to research.

I unmounted the card and inserted another and went thru the same process to see how easy the process would be. The app spun for over 10 minutes and the original tracks were always visible under Tracks, Albums, Artists, etc. Every few minutes I got an error message that Media Monkey had stopped working. Unmounted, same process, app spun for another 10 minutes. So, I don't know if it's the app or the Nook.

My hope was that I could use numerous micro cards to listen to music and that when I put in a new card, MM would read new card and reset. And I hoped to use playlists that I had on the cards, but couldn't get another card to work.

I don't know if this information needs to go somewhere else because I don't know if it's the app or the Nook.

1) Don't know about external drive, MMA on my Android is able to read an external USB drive
2) MMA can handle inserted SD cards
3) MMA should read M3U Playlists

I don't think I explained.

If I get a Nook, which is Android, and I install the Media Monkey app on the Nook;

1. Will the MM app be able to read/use the music files on the external hard drive?
2. If I insert a micro card, will the app read and play those files as well?
3. Will I be able to use m3u playlists? Or will I have to create playlists on the Nook using MM app?

I'm hoping someone has tried this specifically on a Nook or at least on another android tablet and have used the MM App.

MMW won't run on Android (it's Windows only). You need MMA which is a separate program, with a separate database.

So, does that mean if I connect my external hard drive with a portable installation of MM, I can run MM from the Nook? Will it see all my playlists or will I have to import the playlists to MMA on the Nook and it will use the files on the external? Will this mess up MM on the external?

It's a big purchase and I'm trying to get as much answered beforehand.
