Apple’s Remote App gets an aesthetics job!
The new Apple’s Remote App has undergone a lot of change in terms of aesthetics, with thin lines, translucent elements and a dominating monochromatic interface, it is to quite an extent aping the iOS7’s new design.
Though this update is reflecting more on the iPhone than the iPad, you can be sure that a separate release for the iPAD must be following through.
With Aesthetics going through a major change in this app, the functionality of the app seems to be unchanged with the same features of browsing the iTunes library on any MAC or PC connected to your network along with managing your Up Next Queue or model and use the app like a remote or a keyboard for the Apple TV.
One new feature that marks its entry into the new update is the ‘Genius Shuffle option’ which was introduced in the iTunes 11.1 version. In remote it is available through the Up Next menu.
iTunes Radio doesn’t seem to be making new splashes, as the old radio features is still available.
With Apple putting apps through the knife to get in tune with the new iOS7, people who were expecting more of non-music controls for their Apple TV are surely getting disappointed and should wait for Apple’s next update.
