APRIL 25, 2008 - NUREMBERG, GERMANY

IOSPIRIT GmbH is excited to announce the release of version 1.10 of Remote Buddy today.

WHAT'S NEW IN V1.10

  • Streaming of iTunes® media via WLAN to iPhone™ and iPod® Touch

    The AJAX Remote integrated into Remote Buddy now supports the streaming of all files organized in iTunes®, so that they can be played back directly on the iPhone™ or iPod® Touch. Especially useful: complete playlists and albums can be played back automatically. As the media files remain on the Mac® and are only streamed to the iPhone™ or iPod® Touch, users no longer have to choose a 4/8/16/32 GB sized slice of their collection but rather can access their complete collection via their mobile device.

  • Extended AirTunes™- and output speaker support

    While Remote Buddy users could already previously select the AirTunes™ speaker that iTunes® should send audio to, it is now also possible to select more than one AirTunes™ speaker. The computer's audio output to be used can now also be selected via the AJAX Remote and in Remote Buddy's onscreen menu.

  • Support for controlling additional applications

    The new version brings support for also controlling the new Adobe® Media Player, Adobe Bridge (CS2 und CS3), the Toast Video Player and the media center software XBMC.

  • Improved Bluetooth® support

    The administration of Bluetooth® devices used with Remote Buddy has been modernized and Sony® BD Remote users benefit of new possibilities to save precious battery power.
