Apple Updates, Finally.

The Remote app for the iPhone is one of the most useful applications on the App Store for aspiring living-room DJs, but has gone un-updated for nearly a year – strange, considering it is a first party application. As the name implies, the app allows users to control their iTunes library over WiFi, directly from their iOS device.

At long last, Apple has updated the Remote to 2.0, bringing with it support for the iPad, Retina display, and Apple TV.

What’s New In Version 2.0

  • Designed for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
  • Optimized for Retina displays and large screen real estate on iPad
  • Support for Shared Libraries on iTunes and new Apple TV
  • Bug fixes and compatibility with iTunes 10 and the new Apple TV


  • Control iTunes and Apple TV, from anywhere in your home
  • Pause, rewind, fast forward, shuffle, and adjust the volume from your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad
  • View album, movie, and TV show artwork
  • Create and update Genius playlists
  • Create and edit playlists in iTunes
  • Search your entire iTunes library
  • Control iTunes to send music to AirPlay speakers
  • Control the volume on each speaker independently
  • Control Apple TV with simple finger gestures
  • Enter text with the keyboard
  • Even control Shared Libraries on iTunes and the new Apple TV
