    Anybody know of a good method or app? I have the iPad in the kitchen on a dock and would like to control the music that is on it.

    Apple would make a killing if they figured out a way to link Mac's/iPad's/iPhones together in harmony without an Airport Express.

    I can do the opposite. I can control the music and anything off my iPhone with the iPad. I use iTeleport (aka jaadu) from the appstore and veency (a cydia app) on the iPhone.

    It could possibly work the other way around as well but I don't want to risk installing veency on my iPad yet. It took me so long to restore and install my apps all over again due to a bad jailbreak attempt.

    I'm looking for a non-jailbreak method. If somebody could get an app to do this, that would be stellar.

    Actually, I'd like to use the iPhone as a simple wireless remote for the iPad. Even if only iTunes. Just a few buttons that I could touch without looking at it to skip tracks, etc

    Tried this, iPad (teleport) connects to iPod touch 2nd gen (veency) just fine. However I can only see a mouse cursor on the iPad screen, nothing else. Can you help?

    Try Tango Remote in the app store, it does exactly what you want. I've used it for a couple of months and I like it :)

    Tango controls the "iPod" app on both idevices only, is that right? I was hoping to e.g. Stream music or vid from via wifi from pc to iPod touch, then use iPad to say change channels etc.

    Yes, Tango Remote controls the iPod on both devices. That's what the OP wanted to do ;)

    Thanks. I guess if apple allowed what I wanted to do, it would defeat some of the purpose of apple would have been a great squeezebox alternative.

    Anyone know of an app where I can control Pandora from one iOS device on another?

    Then why not find a remote to control the iPhone which in turn controls the iPad? The iPad is already portable. If you want non-portable why not string a fiber optic cable from PC to your receiver/speaker setup, then control iTunes with the remote app? This can be done either with your iPad or iPhone.

    It's one solution but only if one integrates a PC into their hi-fi system. I am one of those who keeps them essence....looking for a "Squeeze Box" alternative/solution......which may not available at this stage.

    Just wanted to say thanks - I have an olden iPod touch with iOS 3 that I leave plugged into a speaker dock. The remote that came with it isn't good, so I've been looking for an app that lets me control it from my iPhone / iPad for a while!

    I had a good look a while back but didn't find anything that could run on iOS 3.x. There's a few good looking apps listed on this thread that are 3.x compatible. I'll check them out and report back on what I end up with, and how well it works.

    Found the perfect method

    i had been looking for a way to control Apps within my IPad using my IPhone, and it seemed that a lot of people were trying to do the same thing.

    After a lot of trial and error I have finally a great and very easy to use way of doing this.

    Control IPad with IPhone/IPod:

    Both devices must be jailbroken in order for this to work

    Step 1: install 'IPod Remote Controller' on The IPhone/IPod (available from Xsellize Repo)

    Step 2: install 'Iteleport: VNC' on IPhone/IPod, this is available from the AppStore... Or somewhere else... ;)

    Step 3: install 'Veency' on IPad, from Cydia

    Step 4: install 'Ipod Remote Server' on (BigBoss Repo)

    Enable both Veency and IPod remote in IPad settings.

    Step 5: open 'Ipod Remote Controller' on IPhone/IPod and choose the IPad

    Once a connection has been established the Ipad's music player should pop up on the IPhone, this allows you to control music on the IPad with the IPhone

    There will be a small 'V' icon, clicking on this will alow you to have the the IPad's interface on the click on Launch VNC then Connect then Accept on the pop up on the IPad

    All of this can be done by using Bluetooth to Bluetooth between the 2 IOS devices so make sure Bluetooth is active on both.

    Any problems just reply

    I use Airfoil Speakers. It turns an iOS device into an airplay receiver. You start Airoil speakers on an iPad (for example) and it will show up in the airplay devices on the iPhone.
