Apple updates Remote app
Apple has released an update to its proprietary app for iPhones and iPod touches, Remote. The program lets users control music on a computer or Apple TV through one of the handhelds, with the ability to view album art and information, and configure audio output through AirTunes. The updated version, 1.1, adds Genius support, letting users create the recommendation playlists remotely.
Similarly, people can now use Remote to create and edit general playlists for a computer's copy of iTunes, where users were previously restricted to pre-existing files. The app is a free download, and available in over a dozen languages, such as French, Chinese, German and Spanish.
