Control iTunes libraries and AppleTVs from your iPhone, easy-to-use interface

Quits on return to Home Screen, inability to use the iPhone for any other functions during use, restricted to Apple products

Apple's Remote application is a brilliant piece of software that manages to tie the company's bevy of wireless and music server technologies into the iPhone. It's easy to use and has a great interface, though Apple's application restrictions mean that...

New Apple Remote Review

 

Apple's diminutive infrared remote control was replaced a few weeks back (along with the launch of a raft of other new hardware). The new unit leaves the old white glossy plastic look behind and adopts the brushed aluminium finish of the rest of the...

Alright... so who thinks this thing is the best thing in the world? I do for sure! Its small, and works with all dockable ipods (And don't complain that it doesn't work with the shuffle, cummon, if you wanted special features you would have paid for...

Small, sleek, sexy works with ALL iPods and the new iMac G5... Forward compatable with all Future ipods as well as a handfull of apple computers, small, has that magnet so you can't lose it

If you're too dumb to use the magnet inside to keep it attached to the side of your iMac or ipod universal base, you might lose it

Shuffle or Remote?

 

Extremely handy to have with the iMac and iPod. Plus, as Steve Jobs said, it has 37 less buttons than a Windows Media Center remote. This is sure to be a hit with the all new iMac G5!

VERY small and compact, sleek-looking

hard to distinguish between iPod Shuffle

Yes, the apple remote works fine. It is a convenient way to use itunes remotely. The only problem I had was with the packaging. I guess I am a little slow. I tried to open the product without realizing that there was a seal on the outside. I had to...
