    Here's two improvements I'd like to see:-

    1. Ability to access iTunes Extras from remote app

    2. Ability to swap audio tracks from stereo to 5.1 on movies

    I think the app was originally developed for music and hasn't been updated since movies has become a part of iTunes. Personally I would like to see an option on iTunes that sets the default for the sound, eg. if you have a 5.1 system then set up iTunes to automatically set this as the default soundtrack when available on a movie.

    The problem I have at the moment is that I use my ipad to control my mac mini which is set up on my main tv. In order to change the audio track I have to wait until the film starts and then click on the speech bubble but then as soon as I launch my touchpad app the screen goes grey because the DRM thinks its a second screen and won't let you watch the film. I have to connect a mouse and do it the old fashioned way. Its not a big deal but it would make things easier if you could do it from the remote app. If anyone knows of another way to set the soundtrack before starting the film then let me know.

    How do I go about making these suggestions to Apple?

    Improvements for remote app?

    Maybe Apple can fix this primitive heap of crap that they've turned it into.

    It does not work in landscape anymore. It will simply NOT rotate.

    I cannot edit playlists anymore. On my iPads the app simply crashes as soon as I go to "add songs", on my iPhone it tells me "No songs in Library, download some in iTunes", despite the fact that there are several thousand songs in that library.

    Don't use it much for music so I can't comment but has always worked ok. As I said, improve the movie aspect of the app and I'll be happy
