Customer Reviews

Functions well

My laptop's connected up to my TV on the other side of the room, and I frequently listen to music. This app has saved me the burden of having to get up every few minutes to change track, instead I just fire the app up on my iPad and it takes the hassle out of everything. I've modified the power plan on my laptop to 'do nothing when I close the lid'. It doesn't shut the computer down, just turns the display off on my laptop whilst keeping it working through my TV - thus allowing me to conserve energy through reduced laptop screen usage. Perfect app in every way! Way to go Apple :) loving it

Vista + iPad mini

Worked flawlessly. Opened app, entered Apple ID. Went to iTunes: File>Turn On Home Sharing, entered Apple ID. Pressed ok on the app top-right. Played some tunes. No restarts, no problems and I was using Vista, which works with nothing. So whatever problems anyone is having, might be related with using mac? OSX seems to be the new vista as far as I am concerned.

What a faff to set up!

Brought my new Apple TV home today and expected an Apple experience but what a palaver to set it up and get the remote app to work.
I don't know what people who only have iPad or iPhone do to get it to work. It seems that unless you have iTunes installed on a mac or PC so you can activate home sharing I don't know what you would do. I just wanted to Airplay my iPad content to the Apple TV but it seems you can't do that without a PC or Mac. The remote app is OK but hardly thrilling.
