It's in the App Drawer.

- What filetypes are supported?
MMA currently relies on codecs supplied with Android. For details of this see:
http://developer.android.com/guide/appe ... rmats.html
How do I close MediaMonkey?
Press the Android 'Back' button a few times until MMA is closed.
Note that the process will terminate a minute after it's been closed.
- How do I shuffle tracks?
You can either:
1) Play selected tracks in random order using the 'Play shuffled' button in the global toolbar (next to 'search')
2) Enable shuffle mode by touching the screen in Now Playing:Album Art view (which triggers an overlay to rate tracks, or set continuous/shuffle modes)
- How do I sync MMA with MMW wirelessly?
1 Install and run MMW 4.1
2 In MMA, click Sync Now (or Click Options > Select Sync Server)
--> The server (MMW 4.1) that you installed at step 1 will be displayed
3 In MMA, select the MMW 4.1 server
--> If your device has multiple storage locations (e.g. SD card, Internal storage, etc.), you'll be prompted to select which storage location to use
5 Select the storage location
--> You'll be able to configure the sync rules
6 Click Auto-sync to this device
--> You'll be prompted to accept incoming connections from the device on MediaMonkey for Windows
7 Click 'Yes' on MMW, to agree to grant access rights
--> You'll be presented with a list of which content you want to sync in MMA
8 Select the content you wish to sync
9 [Optional] If you want to sync content from directories on the device, enable 'Auto-sync to the server' and choose the directories
10 [Optional] If you want to delete content from the device that isn't selected for synchronization use the 'Delete' options
11 Click 'Back a couple of times' (to get back to the menu) and then click 'Sync Now'
Note: We'll probably be tweaking the workflow/wording slightly before release.
One final point: you can also configure synchronization by hooking the device up to MMW over USB, and configuring all the sync rules there (including some rules that aren't accessible via the MMA UI (e.g. auto-conversion rules). Then when you attempt to initiate wireless sync via MMA, it'll use the profile that you created on MMW.
How do configure wi-fi sync to convert audio formats (e.g. flac to mp3)?
Conversion rules (and some other more advanced sync settings) are configured in the Device Profile in MediaMonkey for Windows.
What does bi-di synchronization do?
It causes tracks from defined directories on the device to be kept synchronized with MMW. Metadata and playcounts for any track on either sync list are synchronized regardless of whether this is enabled.
Does it matter whether I configure my device for USB or MTP mode?
It's irrevelant to Wi-Fi synchronization, but still relevant to wired (USB) synchronization
Can I initiate a USB sync from the Android device?
