Bug Description

I'd like to support this project by making a dedicated Android application for syncing with BeatBox, let me know if you want to create this support so we can cook up a protocol specification.

oh god, I'd love this, if you guys need some help there, be it testing or anything else, contact me!

Just a note: Android 3.0 and up use MTP for file transfers now (at least for most devices I've seen). So not sure how that affects the development of this feature, but I thought I'd let you know. :)

Thought I'd show you this:
It is a wireless sync between Linux and Android which is working right now (I tested it). It syncs files in specified folders wirelessly, so could be used for beatbox, but also any other sort of wireless sync. :D
