    Does anyone know of an app to let me remotely select a different audio output from my Mac? A proper IOS app to do this would be ideal.

    My usage scenario is:
    I have my full music library on my Mac mini in iTunes and have some bluetooth speakers dotted around the house. While I have some music on my iPhone, it would be great to be able to remotely switch bluetooth speaker targets on my Mac mini and then use the Apple remote app to control music playback to the selected speaker with access to my full iTunes library.

    I could use a VNC client to access the Mac desktop, switch on bluetooth and then select the audio output and this works but I was just looking for something more streamlined, preferably without the need to see the desktop and navigate.

    Give Remote Buddy a try and let us know if it does what you want.
