Mirage Media Controller
By Autonomic Controls, Inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Turn your iPhone or iPod touch into a powerful controller that will allow you to orchestrate media playback from anywhere in your home.
With the Mirage Media Controller, you can instantly access and play your entire media collection, including multiple iTunes and Windows Media collections, Sirius XM, Pandora, and thousands of free internet radio stations with TuneIn Radio, all in one consolidated collection from a single application. If you hear something you like on any source, a single button press creates a customized Pandora station that will help you discover more music to love by playing back content with a similar style.
When used with the Mirage Media Control System, the Mirage Media Controller will allow you to remotely control iTunes, Windows Media Center, or Windows Media Player on your PC complete with metadata, album art, and full media browsing.
For professional A/V installers, the Mirage Media Controller will communicate over IP with Crestron, AMX, and other control systems to relay zone/source selection, volume, and power commands to the central automation processor.
The Mirage Media Controller requires the Autonomic Mirage Media Server or the Mirage Media Control System, both available separately from Autonomic Controls.

What's New in Version 5.3
Performance Improvements & Bug Fixes.
Good when it works - needs more features!
Any time I select an artist, it only shows me the first handful of available titles. For example, if the artist has 30 albums, the app will only show me the first 10-15. In order to see all of the albums, I have to exit the page and reselect the artist to get the full listing.
Search criteria are lacking. Many soundtracks or compilations should have an album artist of 'various artists' or else you can't find all of the tracks of the album. Thus, it's a must that this app add more search options!
Must have search option for the following;
1. Album artist
I do love the connectivity to local and internet radio, as well as streaming services such as Spotify and Rhapsody.
However, after using this for 2 years now, no search capability with a library the size of mine is inexcusable.
