    This is a review for the awesome application, Remote.

    What is Remote?
    Remote is a new app for the iPhone and iPod touch, available for free. It allows you to control a computer's iTunes from anywhere in your house (really anywhere with WiFi, but I don't know why you would need it outside your home). Say your having a party, and you have speakers mounted all over the house - connecting to one computer. You don't like the song that's playing, but you're downstairs and the computer is upstairs. No prob - just whip out your iPod, and change the song.

    When you first enter the app, it shows you without any libraries connected. You will be given the option to add a library.

    When you add a library, you are given a 4-digit password. Connect your iPod to the computer to be connected, and you will be prompted for this password. Simply enter it, and you are connected with your computer.

    The overall interface is much like the interface on the iPod section of your iPhone or touch. The only change is that you are able to search for songs.

    Overall, I really enjoyed using this application. I can see how it would be useful for a lot of people. However, the interface can be a little bit laggy due to the fact that it's connected through WiFi. It's definitely worth downloading just because surprisingly, it's FREE, and it's a fun little app that you can't go wrong with.

    No, It works on WINDOWS.

    PC= Personal Computer.

    Windows - OS

    Mac - OS

    PC = Both.

    And Dude, Plain White T's....

    *facepalm*

    Don't be such a c*ck, eh? PC is traditionally used for Windows based machines. And Mac is NOT an OS, it's a range of computers. The OS is not called "Mac" you smarmy little know nothing twat.

    http://www.apple.com/macosx/

    Mac Operating System X Leopard

    "Today a PC may be a desktop computer, a laptop computer or a tablet computer. The most common operating systems are Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Linux".

    It does go onto say that "However, the term "PC" is often used only to refer to computers running Microsoft Windows."

    Nevertheless, people need to learn to differentiate between what is called a PC, I.E. A desktop, laptop etc and the operating system running it.

    Ask if it runs on Windows too or is it just for a Mac.

    Do not say does it work on a PC.
