  • Zeppelin hiccups...

    By ericjoustra
    Using Apple Remote to control iTunes over B&W Zeppelin play: When things go smooth, I start a song or playlist in Remote, and still have to disable and then re-enable the Zeppelin on my iPhone or iPad. Unfortunately, when things do not go like this, I have to reset everything, and be very patient... I can’t blame either company for this, as I don’t know where communication fails. However, I still hope that two companies that strive to the best in their own field can sort this out and provide me/us with the best listening experience possible!

    By BilliamG123
    It recognizes the library but no longer controls the music on my Mac mini. It’s useless.

    By j gordon holt
    Works every time to stream itunes to multiple systems. My only gripe is up next can be a pain because it just keeps playing the next album instead of stopping. The only way to play 1 album from a group of albums by 1 artist is to make a playlist.
  • Ok but needs higher integration

    By LesIceland
    The works as designed, but does not fully integrate with Apple music. I use a Mac mini as my entertainment hub and it would be nice if this app would allow me to fully navigate Apple Music.
  • Really difficult to precisely navigate

    By AP94941
    The drag gesture is really a tough way to navigate the appletv. I wish there were simple arrow keys.
  • 4.3.1 Update Crippled Click to Play

    By 1960s Pentax Spotmatic User
    There is still a persistent issue. In older, but not ancient, versions of iTunes ( I tested 9.2.1 (5) ) the user cannot click on a particular song to play it, especially within Playlists. This functionality worked well before the Remote 4.3.1 update a few years ago.
  • It would be nice

    By Replyzone
    If there were a way to search for a specific song or artist
  • Playlist support

    By cjudas
    Perhaps this has been implemented and I’m not aware, I think the ability to assign a song to a playlist (new or existing) would be a version 1 feature. I’ve been using the remote app for years and haven’t run across it. Please enlighten me if I’m just being dense. Otherwise, a smooth and well implemented app! :-)
  • Latest update breaks everything

    By Empty167
    I’ve been using this app for years with no problems and, now, suddenly it refuses to locate my iTunes library. I’ve found no way to get it to work. This blows my whole setup out of the water.
