Apple Remote for iOS updated with iTunes Radio support

Apple Remote for iOS updated with iTunes Radio support

Apple on Thursday released an updated version of Remote, the app that turns your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad into a remote control for the iTunes library on your Mac or PC.

You can also use Remote to control your Apple TV. The app lets you search your library, view album, movie and TV show artwork, control which AirPlay speakers you want to use, and more.

The new 4.1 release adds the ability to control iTunes Radio on the Mac or PC.

I updated a little while ago, but my question is why did it take so long for iRadio support? Shouldn't that have been ready when Mavericks launched?

I don't know. I'm just not a fan of the app. Maybe I'll give it another try.

I like this app. It comes in handy when I am on the treadmill.

I've come to use the app mostly as a remote for my Apple TV primarily because the keyboard simplifies searches so much more than the Apple aluminum remote.

In case anyone has an issue where isn't showing the "Radio" tab, I had this issue (even though I had used Radio on my Mac, iPhone, and iPad). To fix it, I went into iTunes on the Mac, went to the Radio tab, and somehow iTunes had set itself back to the Radio welcome screen. After clicking the "Start Listening" button, the Radio tab then showed up in
