remoteappApple has updated its Remote iOS app to add control of iTunes Radio on iTunes on the Mac or PC. Previously, Remote could not control iTunes Radio on computers.

The app was previously updated in early November with an iOS 7-inspired redesign.

Remote is designed to be in perfect sync with iTunes. With just a few taps on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, you can play iTunes Radio from anywhere in your home. Choose playlists, songs, and albums as if you were in front of your computer or Apple TV. Or play them from iCloud with iTunes Match on Apple TV. Control your Apple TV with the flick of your finger or use the keyboard to quickly tap out a title instead of clicking letters on the Apple TV screen.

Remote is a free download for the iPad and iPhone from the App Store. [Direct Link]

OK I was slightly off. Do the following:

1. Choose the ATV you want to use if you have more than one.

2. Start playing the movie/song of your choice

3. Hit the bottom left icon to the left of the menu button (as shown in the attachment)

4. Navigate from subtitles to speakers and choose the device you want to hear audio out of.

5. Tap left and right to raise or lower the volume bar to the right of the device name as shown in the attachment.


The limitation of this is this only works if you want to change the volume of an alternate device you want to send the audio to. So it's not as useful as some overall audio control for that actual device in front of you and you can't select multiple sources like you can from desktop iTunes.

Thanks for your efforts to look into/explain.

Even with such functionality, it seems complicated and limited, esp compared to a traditional TV remote. Why the heck can't Apple just put a vertical virtual slider up/down the whole side? (Sometimes it is necessary to quickly adjust volume on the fly, as well as hit a mute button; not having this done easy is very incomplete.)

So are they going to neglect the Keynote Remote? I mean that app hasn't been updated in 2 years. Let alone has retina display compatibility or iPhone 5 screen compatibility!

Come on, :apple:
