Apple Updates iTunes Remote App for iOS
Apple has launched an update to their optional iTunes Remote application, which is available from the App Store as a free download. The application allows users to control the music on their computer through iTunes right from their iOS device, whether it is an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, over their home Wi-Fi network.
Reviews for the application tanked after the iOS 6.1 software update, which came out earlier this week. According to reviews, users have been unable to pair the Remote application to their computers after updating to iOS 6.1 on multiple types of iOS devices.
Today’s update includes multiple stability improvements, including a fix for the issue plaguing iOS 6.1 users. We can confirm that the linking process and Remote application now work correctly with today’s Remote application update.
In addition, the update improves search results, rating songs, sorting podcasts, and fixes other general stability in the application as well. If you want to grab the iTunes Remote application from the App Store, you can grab it for free from this link. If you already have the application, you'll find the update under the Updates tab in the App Store.

How come the default iOS music app has no features of the desktop edition?

I'm running 6.1 and haven't yet updated my remote app. It worked with Apple TV perfectly last night.
I haven't tried it with my computer yet...and I likely never will since I have an AppleTV.

The only thing I want Apple to add to Remote would be for me to turn Airplay on my iMac from my phone, or even just the Apple TV, so I don't have to run all the way upstairs to my iMAc if I want to view the screen on my TV downstairs.
This seems like such a no-brainer I can't understand why it's not possible and why more people don't complain about it.

iMovie, iPhoto, Garageband, Pages, Numbers, Keynote, and much more large iOS apps also cannot do what the desktop versions can do because of the lack of screen space. There's not enough canvas.

That's actually absolutely possible. Just activate sharing in your iMacs iTunes and choose it with the remote. You can start the video via remote app and choose your Apple TV via Airplay. Totally easy.
