Android music server?


Aug 13, 2012
Does anyone know of an app that I can install on one phone to play music and control from another phone over Wifi or Bluetooth?

I want to get a cheap Android phone with music on it to keep in the glove box of my car which has power and an AUX input to the stereo. I then want to be able to select music from my normal phone which will be held in a doc in the car.

Music Remote I think will do this but it needs an internet connection. The Android phone in the glove box won't have internet access so it needs to be over Bluetooth or Wifi. I don't want to set my phone up as a wireless access point as this really drains the battery.
