The Remote App is not showing album art since iOS 8. Noticed this the other night but though it was missing album tagging. Now I see it is all Album art, even from Radio.

Can anyone else confirm this?

The remote app is not showing album art for me either. It's a bit annoying since I use the app a lot.
I'm on a iPhone 5S running 8.0.2. Remote app is 4.2.1. iTunes 11.4 on 10.9.5.

Interesting, since no one else posted I thought it was a Yosemite/iTunes 12 problem and not a iOS/Remote problem. I even tuned in a BR about it. Since you are using Mav/11.4 then it must be an iOS/Remote problem. Hopefully the Yo team will shoot it over to the iOS team.

Wonder why others have't noticed this and posted?

Same problem here as well. Works fine on my iPhone 4S...but, on my iPad2 and my iPad Mini Retina, it does not.

I was part of the discussion on the Apple Support forum. But, as I made a remark that Apple is becoming more and more careless about such things, they deleted nearly every post I made about the matter in the entire thread and then sent me a threatening nastygram about my failure to shut up and love Apple.

By all reports 4.2 does indeed work.

My problem is that I am also having Time Capsule problems (with a nearly brand new Time Capsule...go figure) and seem unable to get the appropriate files back off of it in order to move back to 4.2.

Does anyone have the App and .ipa files for Remote 4.2? I'd really appreciate it if I could get them from you if so.

This is total BS... It's already February and Apple still haven't fixed it!!

Now over six months and Apple refuses to even acknowledge the issue.

What a silly obvious bug, why no fix yet?

On iPad mini 2, and nothing.

I guess I am glad there are others to assure me it is not something on my end.

Thanks for taking the time to post guys.

Fixed!

The update from today 4.2.2 seems to have returned the artwork. Tried it once more on 4.2.1 before updating and still was missing. As soon as updated all good!

iPhone 6 iOS 8.3
