Want to use your iPhone or iPad as a remote control for music in your house? Download Apple’s free Remote app and sync it to iTunes on your laptop or desktop and you are in business. (This requires you to login in to your Apple account and to turn on “Home Sharing” on your computer, an option under the drop down menu “Advanced” in iTunes).

The app lets you control iTunes from anywhere in your home. You can browse your library and choose playlists, shuffle, skip and listen.

Today, Apple has updated the app to support the release of iTunes 11. The Version 3 update includes iTunes’ new “Up Next” tool, which you can use to see a list of upcoming songs and edit what comes next. The update also includes new search and browsing capabilities such as letting iPad users view all songs in an album with the “expanded view” tool.
