Apple has released Remote 2.1.1, the latest version of its Wi-Fi-based remote control application for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. According to Apple’s release notes, Remote 2.1.1 offers improvements when connecting to iTunes or an Apple TV, a new “skip back” button when playing video, and other unspecified stability and performance improvements.
Remote 2.1.1 is available now as a free download from the App Store and requires iOS 3.1.2 or later.
Update: The update also adds the ability to turn the iTunes visualizer on and off, directly from the Now Playing screen.
The feature appears to be Mac-only, and requires users to activate the visualizer on their computer first before the new button—which sits between the Genius and shuffle controls—appears..
