VLC Remote Free
By Hobbyist Software Limited
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
VLC Remote® lets you remotely control your VLC Media Player on your Mac or PC. For iPhone iPad!
Awarded Gizmodo's “Essential iPhone App” three years running. Awarded T3's “Best iPhone Apps”.
The free version is identical to the paid version except for two things:
1) The free version shows adverts.
2) The free version won't let you browse to open files from the remote. You'll have to get up of your sofa and do that manually until you upgrade!
“The new VLC Remote app is simply stunning! It works a treat and it feels professional and powerful. Love it.”
- Adam, London

What's New in Version 9.20
Updated the internals
Version 9.2 is broken
This latest update is broken. The app used to work, then when I opened it this evening, I noticed a blank grey screen with no buttons, no on screen options, nothing. Checked the update log, and it updated to version 9.2 on July 15 - the date of this review. I deleted and re-downloaded, restarted the phone, same result. First world problem for a free app, but save yourself the headache and wait until they fix this. Bummed
Awesome app but...
The last version is broken, specially the widget 😕
