    Default [Release]iRemote v0.2 - Control Itunes on your PC with your iPhone
    iRemote v0.2

    If you are nowhere near your computer, and all you wanted to do is use your iphone to pause the music or fast forward to the next song. This is for you. And to make things even easier, iRemote is bundled with wkLive authentication. That means you do not need any home network, any router configuration for this to work. And no, you don't need VNC.

    Instructions :
    1. Download the attached archive. Extract, you will see 2 files and one folder.
    2. Transfer the "iRemote.app" folder into your iphone, make sure you chmodded the entire thing 755.
    3. Double click iRemote.exe on your pc, make sure that msscript.ocx is on the same directory as the program.
    4. Login using your wkLive account on your pc as well as on your iphone.
    5. Remember to have itunes switched on to work. (thanks dallas)
    6. Have fun!

    (thanks to modmyi for hosting wkLive, without them all these are not possible.)
    Technical :
    - iRemote does not use your local network, instead it routes your commands to the internet and back to your pc. Therefore there is a significant lag between your iphone to your pc.

    Instruction to add, after you launch both on PC and Phone, make sure you launch ITUNES, choose directory of music, then choose shuffle if you want and wala it works

    Hi, the reason for the delay is because the commands are routed through modmyi servers, not directly phone to pc. In the future I might include a function to communicate directly , but that will require your iphone and computer to be on the same network. iRemote v1 works that way.

    touchpad pro works through vnc, but without displaying the video on the remote device. It's fast...virtually instant.

    Did you launch itunes?

  15. #12
    Dude awesome release. This app is awesome!

  16. #13
    I found iRemote on the installer and tried to install it and got an error saying it failed. I would just install it manually, but I am not able to chmod things. What do I do?

    Why wouldn't the App work like a remote desktop software ala RAdmin or VNC? Why does it have to go through modmyi servers? I just don't understand the need for it to use a server. Shouldn't your PC be the remote server the iPhone connects to over the net?

    That would require people to setup port forwarding and be a general hassle for the average user.

    But speaking of that, does anyone know of an iTunes remote for the iPhone that can ONLY be used on a local network.

    I only have need to control the music when I am at home and on my network.

    Touchpad pro has some media server thing that lets you control itunes, pretty cool actually but it only gives you 30 seconds cause its a demo version.
    And about this app....its really cool, but I would prefer if it used Intranet, not Internet to comunicate with my PC itunes...and the port forwarding thing would be no problem....but the app would be a lot better...
    BTW its kinda laggy...this app....but still its a keeper...." a FREE itunes remote"....yeah...good stuff

    Great app! Wonderful for my workout! Are there any new features being planned? i.e. volume control and iTunes Library browsing feature? Tried Touchpad Pro today and it's cool but when I try to reconnect it, Touchpad takes 1-2 minutes to connect then the Music Media Server file is trial so it disables after 60 seconds. My firewall (ESET NOD32) can be a pain. but this is the least painful solution. Willing to pay for a app with more feature when available. Great Job!

    Sweet app, its going on my media pc at work tomorrow.

    would like to see:
    The option for a local server for those of us who don't mind setting it up.
    A tray icon to minimize the window to.
    Auto login
    Volume controls

    wish list:
    View songs
    Song recognition so it can fetch lyrics, album art, wiki... basically a mashup with tune wiki
