Bonjour-enabled iPhone wins rave reviews

July 14, 2008 § 1 Comment

The iPhone Remote control for iTunes and Apple TV is taking the world by storm — thanks largely to the power of Bonjour. Hat tip to S.C. for the links.
I see you, iPhone Remote

A lot of people are busily activating iPhone 3Gs and upgrading old iPhones to the new 2.0 software. And they’re downloading apps on the app store, most particularly Apple’s free iTunes Remote utility.

One GeekDad’s Review of iPhone 2.0

Perhaps the coolest little bauble in the free apps, Remote turns your iPhone into an Apple remote, so you can use it to control iTunes on your computer, or your AppleTV, when you’re on your local wi-fi network.

iPhone 2.0 and the iTunes Remote

One of the most surprising and enjoyable elements is the iTunes Remote. Full and comprehensive access to my fairly large iTunes library on the iMac: all playlists, etc, with the ability to control volume, jump around in songs, see artwork – just like the ‘iPod’ iPhone application!

Impulsive Highlighters

The Remote is one of Apple’s own applications rolled out for free over the App Store for the new iPhone software and it is absolutely brilliant, with an amazing user interface and flawless integration. It’s the best iPhone application I’ve used yet and I just love it! It sets the perfect example of an iPhone app.

iPhone 2.0: Remote App << Cheaper than therapy

The NYTimes reader is nice as is the Google app that gives me decent access but it’s the Apple Remote app that is just, well, cool.

Apple TV updated, support for MobileMe, Remote

The iPhone remote application is worth the upgrade alone. Gone is the need to use Apple’s minimalist remote control, and replacing it is a full color touch sensitive remote that would put a Logitec all-in-one unit to shame (although of course it won’t work my TV). For Apple TV fans, bliss.

First iTunes Remote App for iPhone Hands-On

One of the first apps I downloaded while doing the App Store video walkthrough today was the new iPhone Remote for iTunes. There’s only one word to describe it: perfectomfgthisissocool.
Verdict: download it now.

A First Look at the iPhone Apps Store

It’s that simple: the iPhone is now a house-wide wireless remote control for your music library. I would hate to be one of the companies that sells house-wide wireless remote controls for your music library right about now.

Apple’s Upcoming iPhone Remote App for iTunes Is Really Smart

iPhone 2.0 ‘Remote’ : a Small App For A Giant Leap Forward

Shall you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, you can now remote control your iTunes libraries (Mac and PC, Folks) with the little yet jaw-dropping awesomely fantastic Remote application.
Now, once again Apple is showing the way to the Future : how we’ll be able to control any *connected* device from our smartphone – er, iPhone.

iPhone 2.0 firmware features snazzy little remote app

One of the delicious new freebies in the iPhone 2.0 software update: a lovely little app that will turn your iPhone or iPod touch into a remote control for your Apple TV or within iTunes. It works over WiFi and even hoovers up the cover art or preview image of what you want to play. The Shuffle-like Apple remote magnetically attached to the side of my monitor seems so quaint now.

Hands On with iTunes iPhone remote

You’ll probably remember last month when I wrote about a rumor stating that Apple planned to make their own iPhone remote for release in the App Store. Well, it turned out to be true, and it’s awesome. Apple, with a stroke of genius, has decided to call this iPhone application Remote. It’s free, it’s 1MB, and it’s available through the App Store that was launched yesterday.
