iTunes Remote (also known simply as Remote) is a software application developed by Apple Inc. for iOS that allows for remote control of any Apple TV or iTunes (version 9.2.1 or later) library in an area with Wi-Fi connectivity using the proprietary Digital Audio Control Protocol (DACP).[1] It is currently available as a free download from the App Store for users of iOS 3.1.2 or higher on the iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad.

History

Patent filing

Unofficial software modifications for including this functionality in both iOS and the Apple TV OS had existed previously, but rumors of Apple giving remote control capabilities between iOS and Apple TV had existed since early 2007, when the U.S. Patent Office published a patent filed by Apple on September 11, 2006 that depicted a "media-player with remote control capabilities" alongside a "multi-media center for computing systems".[2]

Features

Remote, similar to the Apple Remote, allows for one to adjust iTunes volume, play, pause, skip or shuffle media playback on an iTunes library on either Mac OS X, Windows or the Apple TV OS through the AirPlay capability. The metadata from an iTunes library is streamed to the iPhone or iPod Touch, which then renders a graphic of the currently playing media (usually album art) from the particular iTunes library.
Remote has a menu of items to choose from:
  • Playlists (including Genius)
  • Artists
  • Albums
  • Search
  • More (which gives access to Audiobooks, Composers, Genres, Movies, Music Videos, Podcasts, Songs, and TV Shows)[5]
On iPad, the increased screen size allows Remote to display an interface similar to that of iTunes, with a list of playlists and other media sources on the left and music content shown on the right. A bar at the top of the screen, very similar to the one present in iTunes, gives pause/play and volume controls. A bar at the bottom of the screen has menus for creating playlists, Genius control and multiple views for the media display.
Remote also features additional support for the iTunes DJ feature of iTunes. Guests with an iOS device can use the Remote app to request a song in the DJ mix and vote on songs in the queue.
