Signal allows iPhone to control iTunes


Alloysoft has released its Signal software, which lets you control iTunes, Winamp, or Windows Media Player with an iPhone or Windows Mobile device via Wi-Fi. The software offers an iPhone-specific interface, which provides a two-way, live-updating view of your media player. Features include the ability to play, pause, and stop your music, browse and search your media library, adjust the volume, rate songs, and more. Signal is available for Mac or PC and sells for $30.

I totally agree with tiny-e.

Still waiting for Gabe to answer my questions. Also, I didn’t hear any announcement from Jobs about Apple coming out with their own solution like Gabe said.

Gabe:  Since you know everything, why didn’t you tell us that the $200 price cut was coming on the iPhone?

I have never used software that was as easy to install, simple to use, and did exactly what I wanted it to.

Step 1: Open the application. A window opens with the IP address and port to go to.
Step 2: There is no step 2.

Go to the specified IP address on your iPhone. The interface is similar to the iPod interface on the iPhone.

After using the demo for a little while and being impressed, I thought, “I would pay for this if they added the ability to rate songs from the iPhone.” I accidentally touched the album cover and the ratings appeared, and I was sold.

For everyone complaining about the price, don’t buy it. There are free solutions out there, they just aren’t as polished, and take more effort to install.

One of the problems I have encountered using Signal (demo), but I imagine this issue would still persist on the full version as well is that I have several computers on my network (mini, macbook, ibook, PC).  If I restart a computer or the airport, the order gets switched around and the IPs change, so I am constantly having to retype the address ports instead of simply bookmarking them, which is kind of annoying.  When it is set up it is nice and I can access music off all the computers and play through airtunes to the speakers in the house.  Does anyone know if there is a way to dedicate an IP port (with the touch I am using 5 ports) for a computer or device, this could potentially solve the problem?

did you see they have a FULL FUNCTIONAL demo with NO limitations?  Just use that if you can handle the pop ups

No reason for this app anymore. If you have iPhone/iPod touch 2.0 software update, head to the App Store and pick up Apple’s Remote application for free, and with a lot more functionality.
