Apple update their Remote app to version 2.0

Apple updated their iTunes and Apple TV Remote app yesterday making it compatible with the new Apple TV but also adding some important new features.

The most important new feature is comprehensive support for the iPad. Whether you are using Remote to control your Mac iTunes library or a new Apple TV we are confident that you'll love the new interface which mimics iTunes almost exactly. Genius Mixes and Genius Playlists, iTunes DJ, Podcasts, TV Shows, it's all there.

There are a couple of improvements that we would like to see and also a totally new feature we think should be incorporated. The is no support for iTunes radio stations and there is no drag and drop creation of new playlists, you can create playlists and add songs to an existing playlist but drag and drop would have been nice.

As for future features, we would really like to see video and audio streaming from an iTunes account to the Remote app, kind of like the reserve of Apple's new AirPlay feature.
