Apple Remote App Updated, AirPlay Video Support Added

Earlier today, Apple released a new version of its Remote app for iPhone and iPad, and finally added support for AirPlay video streaming. Users can now use the Remote app to browse the iTunes videos, movies and TV shows library of their Mac or PC, and stream the content directly to their Apple TV. The update offers a much tighter integration with iTunes, as it allows users search their entire iTunes library, and view their movies and TV shows artwork. The update supports movie rentals, and even offers to connect your Apple TV to your preferred iTunes-compatible internet radio streams. Of course, the update also includes all the features brought to the app so far, namely: • Control iTunes and Apple TV, from anywhere in your home • Pause, rewind, fast forward, shuffle, and adjust the volume from your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad • View album, movie, and TV show artwork • Create and update Genius playlists • Create and edit playlists in iTunes • Search your entire iTunes library • Control iTunes to send music to AirPlay speakers • Control the volume on each speaker independently • Control Apple TV with simple finger gestures • Enter text with the keyboard • Even control Shared Libraries on iTunes and the new Apple TV • AirPlay video support to control iTunes on your computer to stream videos to an Apple TV • Internet radio control to play thousands of internet radio streams in iTunes on your computer • The ability to control iTunes on your computer to play Movies and TV shows that are rented from the iTunes Store • Addresses issues connecting to an iTunes library or Apple TV • Includes stability and performance improvements

Like the previous versions, the update is free, and can be downloaded here.
