This is a hobby project of mine that I started a few months ago; being an owner of a synology nas I really liked the idea of being able to listen to my music everywhere but I didn't like the way DS Audio works, so I started out developing a html5/css/js based music player for the browser, which I called JSMusicDB.
The project was a success but not on all mobiles, no html5 audio is far from done, so I started working on a Phonegap build and Mobile MusicDB was born.

Current features:
- Plays local stored music from internal and external SD
- Plays personal cloud stored music from Nasses and personal servers*
- Only streams from the personal cloud if the song is not found on your phone
- Artist and Album art are pulled from last.fm (only once; art files will be stored on your main sd card in the folder 'org.arielext.mobilemusicdb'
- Recently played / Letter / Artist and Album view
- Scrobble to last.fm with use of Simple LastFM scrobbler (can be found in the play store)
- Lockscreen support (undergoing testing)
- Notification support

Planned features before releasing v1.0 to the play store:
- Resume playback (optional)

Planned features after v1.0:
- Store and retrieve playlists to and from the cloud/phone.
- download music from the cloud to the android device
- upload music to the cloud from the android device
- delete music from the android device

The app is in beta, and to opt-in you need to part of the google+ group https://plus.google.com/communities/...83665932810490, I'll update the app regularly and with your help try to make it as bugfree as possible

* To be able to stream from a personal server/nas please visit the google+ group; it contains a step by step howto. If you just want to use it as a music player, press skip in the set-up window.

0.3 adds Lockscreen support, but it will require some testing before I can make it final.
Due to lockscreen support all Android version < 4.0 are not supported anymore.

0.4.5 is released on the app store.

The 0.4 series include a new and battery friendly way of handling the lockscreen support and the app will stop playback when you unplug your headset!

And 0.5.x is here, which fixes the following issues:
- album art lost since 0.5
- unknown artist/meta data on the lockscreen

and adds the following:
- able to play cloud based music from a synology server (nodejs is NOT needed, though JSMusicDB is).

Both issues should be fixed now and with the added functionality to connect a synology server the 1.0 release is near! Things that need to be done before I can officially release the 1.0 version:
- Handling of the backbutton is way to slow atm
- Resume playback (as an options in the settings window)
- Bringing back the animations
- Bringing back the gapless playback

If you want to be part of the testing please sign up using the following google+ group: https://plus.google.com/communities/...83665932810490

MP3 or FLAC
Just downloaded the pro-version, but just reclaimed my money. It had difficulties to log in, and no posibility to have a folder view. You should make it a trial-app: pay after a month or so, so that one can try it.
