mpdroid is being pulled from google play store :(

There are many, many clients for MPD. Many of them are old and unsupported, but maybe someone here can help you with them anyway...

When mpdroid was updated, a message appeared with this link:

http://nlss.fr/mpdroid/

It seems google has pulled them due to some copyright issue, but without any real possibility for the dev to defend himself.
This is really a shame for google. mpdroid was a good client, except for the lacking auto discovery using zeroconf (like mpad does)
In 2014 it's still difficult to tell a customer to enter the IP of his music server in the app, when most apps do autodisovery like the official LMS client and most clients of commercial music servers & network players.

We advised mpdroid with our 432evo.be server which is mpd based .... but guess this will have a big impact on our further using of mpd as well.
We cannot force users to buy an ipad (like aurender does) and force them one client

This is just a sad day for android users

Good news. The decision has been reversed. MPDroid stays
