Looking for the best iPhone apps for cord cutters? Following the Vector podcast I did on cord cutting I've been getting a lot of questions about just that. How can cord-cutters still find shows and watch them, and fill in anything we might have missed? The answer is going to vary a lot depending on what equipment is being used, from antennas to streaming boxes, and where you live, from the plentiful bounty of the U.S. to the digital deserts of some other countries. These, however, are the best cord-cutting apps I've found to date!
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. The new 4.1 release adds the ability to control iTunes Radio on the Mac or PC.
Apple has finally updated its iOS remote app with an all new design for iOS 7. As you might expect from an Apple release, this is a complete overhaul, and while much of it is glitz and glamor, the important part – the functionality – remains untouched, and everything is basically where it was before. But it looks awesome.
Apple has finally updated their Remote app to version 2.0, and included support for iPad 4 and iPod touch 4 Retina Display, and for the iPad. It will also support shared libraries for iTunes and, of course, the new Apple TV (2010) that's just started to hit the streets. AirPlay is also supported, currently for what was previously AirTunes, and no doubt for full on iOS 4.2 video goodness when that's released as well.
Steve Jobs say Apple is the largest start-up in the world, and Posterous CEO Sachin Agarwal not only experienced it, but says that's why things like Apple's own Remote App for iPhone haven't been updated for iPad, iPhone 4, or iOS 4:
Yes, the Remote app is due for an update. But here's why it hasn't been updated: the person who wrote it is busy working on other things. Yes, the person, not the team. (He's a good friend of mine)
Apple's iTunes News has a handy reminder up about the iTunes DJ feature and how it works with Apple's Remote app for iPhone and iPod touch (and we're guessing/hoping a new, iPad-optimized version soon as well).
