Wondering which mobile apps can be the perfect companions for your Volumio? Here they are!

Since Volumio features its integrated WebUi, some people may argue that we don’t need any app. But what if those apps would extend and improve some Volumio capabilities? What if they made just your favourite music Player better?

Well, today we’ll give you an overview of the best Android and iOS apps for Volumio:

Sound@home for Volumio

Not only this was the first and most loved companion app for Volumio, developed by Digix. What makes this app special is that allows a super easy configuration of your Volumio (it will automatically connect to your wireless network of choice), and allows to control easily a multi-room Volumio setup. Altough this does not feature synced playback is just great to play your favourite music in all the rooms of your home.

Welcome Home

Welcome home is an Android application that lets you start playback of a music playlist in one of your Volumio devices, as soon as your device connects to the wifi network. It has been developed to play your favourite music as soon as you come back home. A nice welcome back home!

Configuring Welcome Home is fast and easy. You are guided through a wizard where Volumio devices are searched in your network, their playlists downloaded and shown for selection. When configuration is completed the automatic playback is activated. Multiple configurations can be created so multiple playbacks can be triggered.

Welcome Home is an Android application that can be downloaded from Google Play for a small fee. Money requested for the application will assure that no advertising or in app purchases are going to be introduced in the future. Furthermore, Welcome Home for Volumio has been developed by Massimiliano Fanciulli, one of the core Volumio contributors, so getting his app is a nice way to express him gratitude for the amazing work he’s doing on Volumio.

Volumio official Mobile UI for Android

You’ve asked it, we’ve done it. With the official Volumio app, accessing the WebUi will be super easy. Just open the App and your Volumio device will be automatically detected, and you will see the UI in all its fullscreen greatness! On top of that, you will be able to control Volumio’s volume with your phone\tablet volume button. Indeed, this brings the Volumio experience to the next level of comfort.

You will notice it is a paid app and you might wonder why. Well, we thought this was a good opportunity to raise funds for Volumio development. As you might imagine, there are lots of expenses associated with managing Volumio (server fees, development cost, saas fees etc). By getting this app you will be contributing, even with a small expense, to the funding of our beloved Project. So, thanks in anticipation to everyone that will get the app!

Volumio iOS App

And yes, finally a great iOS App for Volumio, developed by MonkeyProof. And indeed its a wonderful one: many dubbed it as the best music playback app they’ve ever seen (a valid alternative for Mpod and Mpad). It will allow you to control every aspect of Volumio, and usually in a smoother way. If you have an iOS device (iPad compatibility is not ready yet) you just MUST try it.

Last but not least, you can contribute to the App and see the source code in its github repository, or comment to its author in the Forum Thread

Passionate. Heretical. Deeply in love with Technology and Music. I live in Florence, Italy where I teach Interaction Design and Marketing. I'm Volumio's founder and CEO, and I love every second of this great adventure. My audio gear is some strange mix of valve and digital amplifiers, all self built in some cold winter sleepless nights. And I just can't turn that volume knob down.

    Same here. Sh*tballs! I was excited for this app then my daily apple-plectic fits began again. I’m 9.3.1 or maybe .3 but JB. I missed signing window by about 5 to 7 minutes…met my apple-plectic quota that night too.

    Love their mobile products (though less and less) but I hate their company (more and more) and their self-righteous, douche bag, dead, cult leader Steve “outsourced to sweatshop” Jobs!
