Apple releases new Remote 3.0 iOS app

Alongside iTunes 11, Apple has released a new version of the Remote iOS app for iTunes. Remote version 3.0 is redesigned, featuring an iPad interface that more closely resembles the look of iTunes 11, plus a more powerful search feature that delivers real-time results as you type.


Up Next, which offers a simpler way of seeing the next songs in a playlist, is included, as is an Expanded view that shows all songs on an album. The app is also optimized for the iPhone 5. Remote 3.0 also features new icons for both itself and connected iTunes libraries, now with gray accents rather than black ones.

After updating to iTunes 11 and remote 3.0, my remote app now gives me an error that the original song cannot be located.  However, I can go to iTunes on the Mac and find the song and play it just fine. 
Anyone seen this issue?

That’s very unusual, Zack. What caused that?

Had to revert back to Remote 2.3, because a bug (?) causes playlists to display Album Artist Rather than Artist, pretty annoying when the Album Artist is Various Artists.
