Does Media Monkey Have an App for the iPhone?

I'm a long time Media Monkey lifetime gold member and love the product for organizing about 30,000 tracks of music on my PC.

I've got an iPhone and up to now could deal with iTunes, but the last 4 releases have removed custom art and lyrics and other stuff. Its really dumbing down the iTunes product, and I not sure why. I would have assumed that new releases to the software would offer more sophisticated operation and new features, but the new releases are going the other direction.

I was looking for an App on the iPhone to replace iTunes. Important features are separate data base for mp3 (all my PC music is lossless), playlists, lyrics, custom art, and the ability to synch from the mp3 data base to the phone. I would like to completely replace iTunes on my iPhone with another application which is more sophisticated

No, and it seems unlikely that will happen in the future. MediaMonkey can sync to Apple devices (iOS devices require iTunes to be installed). There is MediaMonkey for Android if you ever switch to Android.

With MediaMonkey you don't need to keep a separate MP3 copy of your media files as MediaMonkey can auto-convert on sync. However Collections in MediaMonkey will allow you to separate content using Criteria (like Extension or Path).

You don't need to use iTunes on your PC, it just needs to be installed as MediaMonkey (and any other software) need it to communicate with iOS Apple devices.

You say your files are lossless but then confusingly keep referring to mp3s which are not. If you do have lossless files (FLAC or such), there are a number of iOs apps that play hi-res files (i.e. do not convert them to mp3s). After trying several I settled on Onkyo's hi res player and am very pleased with the result. None of the ones I tried, however, displayed lyrics. Unfortunately, you cannot use Media Monkey to sync hi-res tracks to any of these apps. The Onkyo uses the file transfer tool in iTunes to sync the hi-res (and MP3 files if you wish) to the iPhone/iPod and others I tried also use this. Files that are synced as MP3s by MM to the iPhone can be played in the Onkyo app and can be mixed in a playlist with hi-res files that have been synced with file transfer.

Hi,
If Onkyo app can play tracks that MMW sync then only thing you need to do is to add FLAC to Supported Audio formats of your iPhone profile and disable Auto conversion of FLAC.

Please let us know the results.

I am not sure what happened. The files did sync and MMW did not indicate that it was converting the FLAC files, which it did before I make the changes Peke suggested. The Onkyo player normally indicates the file type that it is playing, but for these files it indicated "unknown", but it did play them. More confusing, iTunes also played them with no problems, so I am not sure what format they are in on the iPhone.

No, there is no MediaMonkey App for iOS and none is planned as far as I know.
