Great app!

WMC user

I have waited a long time for this....the ability to control my wmc from wherever I happen to be enjoying my music. I use a touch screen all-in-one pc as my music server, so it is great to be able to have the same point/touch experience interacting with windows media center (wmc) whether I am next to the pc or far away with my iPad.

I have over 250 CDs sorted by folder and this app sync'ed everything correctly from album covers to titles and tracks. I would make the following suggestions for the developer re fixes/improvements but these do not take away from a great app...

1. Not sure why, but I had to close the app on iPad and reopen before all the music tracks appeared after syncing. Not a big deal.

2. A few of the albums were sorted out of alphabetical order within a correct first letter order. For example, it sorted one of the Bach albums at the end of the Bs after Beethoven, Brahms, etc. happened to 1-2 percent of the albums. Again not a big deal.

If it were possible, it would be even better to see on the iPad what one sees on the pc monitor...but what we have now is very close and good enough. I also agree with one comment someone else made that having a mouse function would be a great add-on.

All in all, a great and very useful app, well worth the money for anyone who spends a lot of time with wmc.

Great App just works

I have had this app for at least a year and it does everything you would expect. Sometimes the auto connection to the mediacenter is tricky but open the app offline and it always finds it in the list.
It pulls all the artwork off the server and shows them on the iPad.
The remote controls work OK although the styling is a bit basic.
It is really helpful that being on the wireless network it works all over the house. Great when working with the music on and in another room.

I love it!


I have my Windows Media Center hooked up to my TV with dual zones, one at the pool with a Harmony One remote. Now this app takes my whole library to the pool like a juke box. Everyone can choose the next song! The only thing missing is incremental updates to the library when I add an album. However the database sync only takes a little over two minutes and I have 465 CDs with complete album art. As far as I'm concerned everything else couldn't suit my needs better ! Great job!
