N8air's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 9/8/18 10:52 PM
I have an old iphone used only for music, why aren’t we able to remotely control it only to control a computer? Dumb
TheZeonChannel's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 9/29/18 3:54 PM
It almost never works. I have Home Sharing on, on both devices, my computer and my phone. My computer is connected via Ethernet so it really shouldn’t have any problems on that end. I have a brand new iPhone 8 so I doubt it’s some sort of hardware issue. When I use the iTunes Remote, it will work, but the moment you leave the app, even if you have “Stay Connected” on, it will automatically desync. It is a constant struggle to get it to resume again since I have to constantly go back to my computer, turn off Home Sharing, remove the remote from my history, and turn off and on Home Sharing on both my phone and computer. Then, we play the chance game where it will HOPEFULLY find my library, and when it does, it’s again a chance game between will it or will it not let me connect to it. Then, once you’re finally in, the app’s interface is extremely basic and limits a lot of features. It also disconnects a lot... This app is garbage, but it can be useful to impress your guests, or completely embarrass you when it doesn’t work the moment you hope it does...
MultimediaSystemsGuy's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 9/28/18 11:42 PM
Apple why do you insist on ruining the look of your own products. First you made iTunes more ugly and removed full-screen album artwork, and now you have ruined the remote app by doing the same. ENOUGH WITH ALL THE UGLY WHITE-OUT APP UPDATES!

SRT-TV's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 9/23/18 10:39 AM
I always check out this app every few months as it always looked as if it needed updating really bad. I’m glad I looked tonight. Outstanding new UI. Super convenient, especially over going through the iOS Music app and its extra steps to accomplish the same.
zustiizth's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 9/22/18 10:09 PM
Dear Apple, why if I speak to my phone and say, “Hey Siri, call Corrie” why doesn’t the call go on speaker? I think it’s silly to physically interact with the phone after asking Siri to make a call. If I wanted to hold phone to my ear I wouldn’t be asking Siri to make my calls.
Mr Uphill-Battle's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 9/20/18 3:03 PM
Used the app for years without updating on my older model Apple TV. Decided to update to see what's new, and NOW it makes me select each letter in search by swiping!! The best part of using this app over the remote is the keyboard, WHYYY WOULD THEY REMOVE THAT FEATURE??!
Canucks72's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 9/18/18 10:09 PM
I give up. Remote app (that used to allow Apple Music/Radio control on my Mac) still does not. You win Apple. Keep this app that was once brilliant mediocre. Update Sept 18,2018 I decided to put two of our HomePods together to act as a stereo pair. Setting that up in the home app was easy. The problem is that I cannot see the newly created stereo pair to play music to! I went to my computer and clicked on the airplay devices and it’s there, but IF it connects it takes about 30 seconds to start playing. I checked ALL devices (2 iPhones on iOS 12, iPad 11.4.1 and iPod touch 11.4.1) and there’s no option to select stereo HomePods in this remote app. I also unpaired the HomePods and created the stereo pair just to be sure and issue persists. I’ve long given up on the ability to control Apple Music from the Mac through this app, but please fix this issue Apple. By the way, in the Music app on iOS devices, the option to play music to Stereo HomePods is there and connects nearly instantly. iTunes (from all computers NOT the remote app) takes about 30 seconds to connect and play.
buck manhands's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 9/1/18 7:20 PM
Great, now it looks like an app from this decade, but it still has the worst navigation ever. What is the point of a remote if you have to drill down three or four levels to get to the play, pause, skip, and volume controls? Still no controls to add to up next. Nothing to easily shuffle. It does connect and control my iTunes, but as a “remote” it is the biggest piece of junk Apple has ever created. It must be to try to get us all to switch to really really expensive airplay 2 speakers. No thanks.

When I tried using the remote with my PC, it would never work. I recently purchased a MacBook Pro and was expecting it to work without a flaw, but it still does not work. I go to input the code to sync up and it says incorrect. How is that possible? Step it up guys. This problem has been persisting for a long time and nothing is being done to fix it.

Buddy Bolden's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 8/23/18 10:17 PM
This app used to be great, when it was first introduced and for years after, but it wasn’t updated to keep up with iOS updates and gradually stopped working. The recent, long-overdue update seemed promising, but as with so much else these days, Apple botched it – the app is now plagued by constant connectivity issues that make using it utterly exasperating. (Often, I can get it to play ONE SONG by turning home sharing off and back on; then it loses the connection and can’t find the library until I turn sharing off and on again.) Experiences like this are one reason I’m seriously considering abandoning Apple altogether, after using their products since the late 1980s. The days when Apple software could be relied on to “just work” are a distant memory at this point.

Dan from Austin, TX's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 8/17/18 2:31 AM
Except half the time I open the app, it won’t connect to my Apple TV. The Apple TV I want to select will be greyed out, so it’s recognized as a source when WiFi is connected, but you can’t select it. This happens at least 50% of the time I try to use the app. Sometimes I’ll have to restart my iPhone and Apple TV and only sometimes that will fix it but when it does, 10-minutes later it’s unable to connect again. This app is great when it works and I can’t get my lazy self up to find the actually Apple TV remote, but like I keep saying, at least 1/2 of the time it does not work and that is not going to keep it on my phone for much longer. Hope they fix these glitches soon...

Acajohn29's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 8/12/18 7:37 PM
I’ve used this app for years and generally been happy with it. Since July for whatever reason, (iOS updates I imagine), it is worthless. It never, ever recognizes my library. I’ve done every troubleshooting step possible, restarted router, signed out, deleted app and reinstalled, nothing works. This is quite a big disappointment. It worked for a while on my iPhone 6S, but now it doesn’t, iPad Air version has been unusable since this issue started.
LUMPYtheDESTROYER's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 8/11/18 9:25 AM
Possible risk of an accidental projection of vacuousness notwithstanding, what’s the point in this app? From the description, I’m getting that I can access my iTunes contents and wirelessly connecting to either speakers, Apple TV and/or a computer containing iTunes. I can already access iTunes and it’s contents via, well, the iTunes app. I been connecting to wireless speakers and headphones almost daily well before I even heard of this. I’m on a 6s I think and even it can cast to Apple TV or connect to iTunes on computer without this.
TurquoiseFanatic's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 6/9/18 7:14 PM

I have been using in my Home with Apple expresses for many years. Set up so each family member can listen to music in any room in my house. I have a server and 16 room distribution amp. Only grip is without Siri I have to manually choose music. I drive alot and used voice/bluetooth in my car for over 10 years (yes you could do this 10 years ago prior to CarPlay!). I would love to use an Apple TV, but Apple also removed digital/analog out from TV (I have a first generation Apple TV which I guess is now a brick).
BLOWN_4.6SOHC's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 6/8/18 12:47 AM
Can’t argue with the simple approach to this app. “Remote” fits my usage of iTunes perfectly. I prefer to use this type of interface when using apps, no mouse or keyboard needed here! I’m loving this on my iPad Air 2.
Bert E.'s Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 6/7/18 2:06 PM
Probably one of my favorite features is that I can remote control numerous iTunes libraries on different Macs, and stream music to several AirPlay sources, and that without the need for AirPlay2 compatible equipment. Works especially well when you’re having a party for example and want to play the same music in different rooms. I do this to stream to several AppleTVs at the same time, and/or to other AirPlay speakers and amplifiers. Such a cool feature! iTunesRemote seems to be the only App capable of doing so...
tehmichael's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 6/5/18 6:50 PM
After the latest iOS and iTunes updates, doesn’t work anymore. Don’t know where it’s broken but home sharing doesn’t work and manually syncing it doesn’t either.

Using the Remote app can only be described as a thrilling life-changing adventure unlike any other you’ll ever experience. While earlier versions of this app were sorely lacking, the most recent update is nothing short of breathtaking, setting a new standard not only for iPhone apps but for all software on all past, current and future platforms. I can confidently say that this update will go down in history as the most brilliant, visionary piece of software ever conceived, the likes of which we will never see again.

Dee Beezy's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 6/28/18 10:58 AM
I would use this app as a backup if I misplaced my Apple TV remote, and it worked great. I would open the app and my Apple TV box would be the first thing to show up. I’ve searched the app but I can’t find it! Sure, I can stream stuff from iTunes to the TV using the app, but this is not the same. If the TV remote function is still embedded somewhere in the app and I can figure out where it is, I’ll change my review.
NCRobino's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 6/27/18 9:07 AM
A big part of our Apple Music libraries are the stations we create to enjoy. Yet the remote app STILL ignores this category. You can play any song in your library or select from random “internet radio” stations. Yet we still cannot start playing any of our custom radio stations based off songs we love or more! Why???? Add this functionality and I’ll gladly update to 5 stars!

For years it seems this app was on its way to the graveyard of apps that Apple won’t maintain. With version 4.4 (released June 2018) the app got a breath of life with an all new look and a lot of bug fixes which makes it useful again. One of the best ways to remotely control your iTunes library (especially if your computer is connected to external speakers).

Carl12439's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 6/27/18 1:27 PM
First off, I thought I would write a review since all the others are at least 3 Year’s old. Now, this app is amazing, if not a little tricky to set up. If your phone screen times out when setting it up, you have to restart both iTunes and the remote, otherwise it will say incorrect passcode. I have only tried it with three Macs, all working as of now. I haven’t tried with windows but I’m sure it has a similar setup process. If you get past setup, this app works great! Plus it works anywhere within Wifi range.

DASchafet's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 6/26/18 11:06 PM
You cannot have the speaker output button(airplay) and volume control in a place that can only be found AFTER you choose a song and AFTER the song starts to auto play. Whoever designed this obviously has never used the app or used the app to control multiple outputs that require different volume settings for each output. You have to put the airplay button somewhere before the music starts to play. This will blow up someones headphones and/or speakers if you have multiple setups and are not extremely careful. This MUST be fixed.
BalefireZ's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 6/24/18 6:45 AM
Honestly, the app is as the title says. It began as a really good app. I enjoyed being able to control my iTunes from anywhere in the house. However, now, it rarely connects. I’m forced to use Home Sharing. Even then, if I leave it for too long, it seems to forget that I’m connected and then won’t reconnect. If it gets all the bugs worked out, it might be worth while.

Sports Fan2w's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 5/30/18 4:48 AM
Why doesn't this work with Apple TV 4? This is just a remote on the iPhone - may as well just use the remote that came with the Apple TV. This app serves no purpose whatsoever for Apple TV users. Now they'll just move on to some other promise and get everybody excited, but won't actually get it to work. I have a remote app for my Yamaha receiver that shows me the settings, gives me channel and track information, lets me select artist, album and track, etc. All without having to stand in front of the TV like I do with the Apple Remote. What a huge failure. ***Update*** These missing features that had worked on the Apple TV 2 are now available for Apple TV 4 in the Music App. It is now possible to control the Apple TV 4 Music app by browsing and selecting your music on the iPhone without having to use AirPlay. Thanks Apple for addressing this in the correct way.

I should be able to add a song from the Now Playing screen to a playlist. In order to add songs to a playlist currently, you have to choose the playlist, hit edit and scroll through however many songs is in your library (8000+ for me) find the song and manually add it to a playlist. Overcomplication of a simple native task. Please include the “...” option or something to the “Now Playing” screen that allows for song editing/playlisting. 5 star app otherwise.

This app used to work very well, now it doesn't work at all. I have home sharing turned on, and it still will not connect. Needs an update

I have used this app for at least five years to control iTunes on my Mac. I have not had any problems and works great for me.
SoftPink's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 3/25/18 4:40 AM

As the title says. Update the iTunes remote app to support iPhone X please!
SDEVO619's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 3/13/18 4:54 PM
Please update for iPhone X. It is getting a bit ridiculous that Apple still has not updated this app. Also, the Apple Watch user interface would be much better if the play and pause buttons are disabled while scrubbing, so you don’t accidentally toggle them while scrolling.

It works sometimes, which isn’t good enough. Also wish it provided the ability to edit song information, like ratings. This app could be way better if Apple actually cared, but they don’t. Like iTunes, Apple has completely abandoned this app.

It seems worry switching to Spotify. They have a much more fluid ecosystem.

The app is laughably outdated

I can control both apple Tvs & computer. Couldn't be any easier!! Thanks I use on it iPad & iPhones and iPod and couldn’t be happier.
Jaysthoughts's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 10/9/18 3:36 AM
Did you just solicit me to turn on notifications in an essential apple app that I can't delete?? How DARE you. Seriously. Don't spam me in a service I pay for!!
Big Jim 59's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 10/7/18 9:18 PM
They fixed a few minor annoyances I had with previous versions. I’ve been using this for years to play music out on the deck and love it! My only gripe is that I have to tune in Apple radio stations from my PC. On the app, I can see the song that is playing and even the next song coming up. I just can’t tune to different radio station from the app.

I would love to connect a Wireless hard drive with all my movies and stream them
BummedInValencia's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 10/28/18 6:13 AM
I’ve been using this app almost since it first came out (seems like 10 years or so). It used to work great! I use it to control my iTunes library through Apple TV and my iPhone 7s when I am hanging out in my pool listening to my outdoor speakers. But now, I am lucky if it stays connected for 3 whole songs. I am constantly going back into the house and monkeying with the ATV to get the connection back. It’s infuriating. Please just fix it so it stays connected!
Darthsungam's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 10/27/18 10:02 PM
I go onto the app after My Windows computer has iTunes open, and it doesn’t find my library.
Nadir Elamin's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 10/24/18 1:56 AM
The newest update absolutely ruined the app for me. I can’t connect to my library anymore without unplugging my Ethernet cord. Please fix!!!
guitarman1101's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 10/20/18 7:02 PM
It works great. But if im on an iphone. Why is there not an option to add this to my menu where music and wifi and stuff is. And option to use volume buttons to control itunes volume. I swear it used to have this option
pkroetsch's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 10/19/18 10:43 PM
I see no improvements. The look is what annoys me. The prior version had the album cover create a nice background over the screen. Now a glaring white. I hate it.
SpoopyHarleyBabe's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 10/18/18 2:50 AM
This app used to be semi good and useful. now it’s a flop. it won’t connect at all. I have restarted my phone, as well as my laptop, nothing. F L O P. Apple you had one job and it was to not eff up this app yo.

Debería de poderse controlar la reproducción en los distintos dispositivos desde la misma app de imusic
flallnatural's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 10/16/18 3:19 AM
Not sure where the negative reviews are coming from. This thing works great with my iTunes on my Mac. It's hooked up to external speakers and it works. I mainly use it to play pause and skip or repeat tracks and control volume. But it can do more than that. I stopped using the app before the June 2018 update but just came back to it and it was a pleasant surprise to see a modern interface. Came back here and realized my iPhone 8 plus auto updated it way back when. Compared to previous version, this update is fantastic. Well done apple
napoleondaddy's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 10/14/18 7:32 PM
It’s simple. Turn on home sharing, connect to the same network, login to the same icloud & watch it work. I use this constantly to change songs on my computer connected to the speakers from my phone when I am in bed. Love this thing and basically replaced remote desktop for me.

Thank you for making it so easy to control iTunes remotely. Synced instantly with no problems. Controls music and volume in iTunes.

What a joke your support is. I sent my iPhone 7 in to get fixed and got it back with scratches and a broken camera lol. Spent 3+ hours on hold and on the phone trying to get a resolution and your senior advisor just hung up on me. The richest company in the history of the world folks. What a scam
305dragon's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 10/12/18 3:30 PM
This app is amazing when it works, and awesome for controlling appletv. I like it because you don’t have to point it like you do from the regular remote...I like to pause my shows from the bathroom with it! But it is moody and sometimes it just doesn’t want to work for a week. There’s no rhyme or reason to it. I don’t make any changes and it comes and goes.
JGWIII's Review of Itunes RemoteReviewed on 10/1/18 2:36 AM
Has historically been a nice remote. But latest version the volume control no longer works. Other controls work fine.
