Apple posts Remote 1.1 for iPhone, iPod touch

Apple has released Remote 1.1, the first update to its iTunes and Apple TV remote control application for iPhone and iPod touch. New in Remote 1.1 is the ability to create Genius playlists and create and edit playlists in iTunes directly from the application. Remote 1.1 is available as a free download from the App Store for all iPhone and iPod touch users running software 2.0 or later.

They’ve also updated the location of speaker selection. Previously, you could select an Airport Express, Apple TV, or Built-in Speakers from the settings menu, this control has now been moved to the “Now Playing” screen.

Awesome!  I’m so glad they finally added Genius to remote..  I’m surprised they hadn’t done this sooner.

Thank you for pointing out the speaker control location change.  I thought they broke something.  This is a great app.

The Now Playing button in the upper right corner of the screen is gone. Now if browse away from what’s playing, there is no way to quickly get back and stop the current content, other than to start and stop something else.

Now that I have posted to demonstrate my ignorance or insanity, the Now Playing button has reappeared in upper right corner. Previously, in extensive testing (10 minutes or so) I was only getting an “Edit” button in that corner. That button now only appears when I click on the More button in the lower right corner. Maybe I’m crazy. Or maybe my post changed the world and the bug was immediately and invisibly fixed! (What else can I wish for??)

the “Edit” button shows up in the top right corner while inside a “genius” or “on-the-go” playlist.  “Edit” shows up in the top left after clicking the “more” button.
