    Hi all - I'm sure this info is somewhere in this forum but I can't find it. I am looking for an app to control iTunes on my Mini which I have set up as a home entertainment system. Currently I have to have the big screen on to see and move around in iTunes but that is often distracting when I just want to play music. Is there an app that will replicate the iTunes screen that is on the Mini and allow me to control it?

    I have MobileAirMouse which is great but I still need the big screen on to start playing music.

    Thanks

    Would it kill you to be more useful? Evidently he does not.

    That's an app released by Apple that let's you control your iTunes with an iPhone/iPod Touch on the same Wi-Fi network.

    Thanks

    Thanks suss2it that's very helpful.

    The crazy thing is if you search the iTunes store for "remote control app" you only get some dog whistle app. Lame, possible fail.:(:apple:

    if you search for "remote" though then that app is the first on the list.
