After months of neglect, Apple finally updated Remote.app today. The updates include a redesign to support the larger screen of the iPad and the Retina display on iPhone 4 and the most recent iPod touch, support for the new Apple TV, and a compatibility update for iTunes 10. It’s a must-have update for everyone running iOS.
Word on the Net is that Remote.app was created and is “maintained” by a single programmer. That would help explain why it hasn’t been updated in a long while. Nevertheless, we now have Remote.app version 2.0 and we’re happy about it.
Here’s the official update list:
- Designed for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
- Optimized for Retina displays and large screen real estate on iPad
- Support for Shared Libraries on iTunes and new Apple TV
- Bug fixes and compatibility with iTunes 10 and the new Apple TV
As always, this update is free, so you’ll want to jump right in on it. Even if you don’t have a new Apple TV or iPod touch, the update will still provide compatibility with iTunes 10.
