    Does anyone think Apple might be porting the iOS Remote.app to the desktop? Currently I'm using a bunch of Applescripts to control my remote library. It's a simple mirror of my local library, so I'm able to tell the remote instance of iTunes to play any music I've selected locally in my iTunes app. It works surprisingly well but feels a little too "abstract" for my taste. I'm actually thinking of turning it into a simple app myself, but I feel it might be a lot of wasted effort for a solution that would not work nearly as well as one developed by Apple directly.

    I know I could just use VNC, but using iTunes on my local computer is a lot more enjoyable.

    Most of the apps seeking to achieve this have not been updated in many years. Any leads would be appreciated.

    While would be good to have on the Mac, doesn't really make much sense for a remote control to an IOS device ? Particularly when u have your phone on your most of the time
