SubStream allows you to have your entire music library in your pocket. You'll never have to worry about which songs to sync to your iPhone again.

SubStream is an iPhone client app for the streaming server Subsonic. Figment, Inc. is not affiliated in any way with Subsonic, but their server component is required for this app to work.

You'll need to install and configure Subsonic on your computer. You can get it from http://www.subsonic.org and follow the instructions. If you want to stream over 3G, you'll need to forward the port on your router to your computer. A site like http://www.portforward.com could help if you don't know how to do that. If streaming over 3G, another thing to note is that when entering the Server info, you'll have to put your external IP in, not your internal one. So go to a site like http://www.whatismyip.com on the computer Subsonic is running on to get the IP. Once it's installed and configured (you'll have to setup a password, point it at your music directory, etc), you're ready to go.

Create playlists in the web interface and load/play them in the app. No creating of playlists within the app yet, sorry.

Windows users: You may have to make adjustments to your Windows Firewall for the app to work. Also, Windows version of Subsonic uses port 80 by default. It is highly recommended you change this port to something higher so your ISP won't block it if you wish to stream over 3G.

If you experience static while streaming iTunes AAC/m4a files: Log into the web interface for Subsonic. Click on "Settings" then on "Players." On the "Select Player" dropdown, choose "SubStream" and scroll down to the "Transcoding" section. In there, make sure you have the m4a->mp3 and aac->mp3 boxes checked. After that, you can stream your iTunes-purchased (non-DRM) music just fine to the app.

Please note: The Subsonic server API is considered a Subsonic "premium" feature and is limited to 30 days of use. After 30 days Subsonic asks that you make a donation to continue using it. This has nothing to do with Figment, Inc or the SubStream app.

5/5 stars

Just what I was looking for.

Great app. Especially since all the other front end apps for subsonic cost 5 bucks or more.

4/5 stars


Works great and is free! Looks better than the other Subsonic apps too. Wish I could rewind/fastforward songs. Multitasking controls would be nice too.

3/5 stars

Amending my review. It stopped crashing and started to work.
