Ratings and Reviews
Remote was my most used app until Catalina
Apple, please fix this app!
I don’t know how to rate this app now. It used to be 5 stars before Catalina ; now it is 0 stars.
I used this app for at least five years to control iTunes on my Mac; it worked great and didn’t have any problems. I updated my Mac to Catalina last week and now this app doesn’t work. Going back to High Sierra would be really painful.
The loss of this app is very disappointing. Now I have to use Apple TV to play my music which doesn’t seem to sound as good or control the music from my Mac in the other room.
Apple, please fix this app, this is a really big deal to me.
UPDATED REVIEW: I guess it might be time to say goodbye to my most used app. The functionality seems to be in the Music app on my iPad EXCEPT you now have to PAY to access your OWN music through iTunes Match! I would be willing to pay for the app but not a subscription to access my own music. We miss you Steve Jobs.
When this app works it’s great. I have an all Apple network and devices and have used it for years. Any time there is an OS/iOS update Remote screws up. It’s always the last app to be updated. It’s like the illegitimate app that gets attention only if there’s nothing else to do. Now it doesn’t work with Catalina, SURPRISE! App support link in store takes you to the tv remote. This isn’t some third party app it’s Apple’s and they obviously don’t care about it. The reviews show that this problem has been apparent for over a month. I removed Catalina and don’t plan on updating until Remote gets an update.
Missing key feature
This is one of the most used apps I have on my IOS devices, using it to control a headless Mac mini music server. There are no iTunes alternatives available I’m aware off, as such it is important to me that it continues to remain relevant. For the most part it works flawlessly with a local music library, what it doesn’t do is quite astonishing, it doesn’t allow selecting music from Apple Music. If I choose an album or song in Apple Music using Remote Desktop from a Mac and then start iTunes Remote on iPad it appears in now playing and functions normally so it seems feasible. Please Apple update this app with Apple Music functionality, don’t make me email Tim Cook over such an obvious shortcoming.
