  • No way to control my Listen Now Playlist on my awesome Apple Music subscription

    By RocketLauncher
    No way to control my Listen Now Playlist on my awesome Apple Music subscription in Remote app? What kind of remote is this? I need to go on my laptop? Am I doing something wrong? I’d give you 4 stars, should integrate with Apple Music to be truly useful for 5.
  • Buggy at Best…

    By Jared Goff
    Great when it works, but my phone lost connection to my home sharing computer and will no longer pair with iTunes. Followed all troubleshooting tips and cannot get the pairing button to appear in iTunes. Was awesome when it worked. I expect better from Apple.
  • Useless

    Upgrade to iPhone 13. This app won’t function. You can enter all the 4-digit codes you want, nothing but a useless gray logo. Nice. Dropping the ball again on the functionality of this app.
  • Add to playlist

    By CC Jones
    It would be awesome if you could add tunes to your playlists using remote
  • Needs an UPDATE

    By madhornytoad
    This app has been a staple for home control of my music forever. However, it’s still limited to the music that I’m sharing over home sharing it will not allow me to pick up radio stations or channels that are offered by Apple Music or in the Apple Music library. For gods sake, it’s still called iTunes Remote. Apple: we love this ability and app. Isn’t it about time it became Apple Music Remote and allowed us to choose all the same great streams and music as Apple Music on the computer can?
  • Abandonware by trillion dollar company?

    By jingai
    Used this daily with my original iPad mini and Apple TV. Just got a 6th generation iPad mini… can’t even get it to connect. So sad. Apple Music takes up a dumb 14 GB on my mini, so another fail. Plus why use air lay when the Apple TV is 2 feet away right there already connected to the TV. Makes no sense. What a waste. Party pooper.
  • Control center option

    By Mr480
    We need a control center widget for easy access
  • iOS is hacked yak

  • Almost Perfect

    By Cutticut
    You can’t access Apple Music directly with this app, otherwise, it’s a handy adjunct to ITunes. Thanks!
  • Functionality

    By miggetymikedeasy
    Remote is fine- does what you need. Controls iTunes libraries as well as Apple TV. Please develop a widget for the lock screen. Like any remote, quickness of access is key. It's a little to clunky to unlock the phone and search for the app. (update 12/2022: it’s the exact same)
