The Boom Remote is a companion app for Boom 2 and Boom 3D, the most popular system-wide audio booster for Mac. With the Boom Remote on your iPhone or iPad (iOS 9 and later), you get to wirelessly control your favorite Boom 2 and Boom 3D features in addition to other well known Mac apps like Spotify, VLC, QuickTime and iTunes. Simply connect your iPhone or iPad to the same WiFi network as your Mac and watch the magic unfold!
This remote gives you the convenience of being able to wirelessly change the volume, toggle equalizers and effects as well as control playback on other Mac media apps from anywhere in your home.

Ratings and Reviews
Connection issues; Mac only
When I started using Boom Remote, I had a lot of difficulty. The application would start to open and then abruptly quit. After restarting both devices, this seems to have been resolved. I sometimes still have difficulty connecting to my MacBook Air when it’s streaming music via Boom 3D. Mostly it works though.
The fact that it can’t connect to a Windows PC running Boom 3D however is disappointing. It’s a platform-agnostic world now, baby! Let’s get with the program.
Needs to offer solutions
I installed this after installing Boom3D on my iMac. I tried using it and it said Boom3D was not running system wide. I still haven’t figured out how to make it do so.
Their site offers a video titled How to Run Boom3D System Wide, which then only gives a sort of ad of it working thusly. But no instructions on the setting. Frustrating.
Cool but needs option
It needs phone Audi for bathroom breaks.
