Remote Windows Media Center from the iPad – vmcMote HD now available


I have been using vmcMote on my iPhone as a way of remote controlling Windows Media Center since it launched and its been one of my favourite remote control apps. On the Media Center PC you install a server component and then there is free and paid app for the iPhone. The developer has launched vmcMote HD for the iPad and it looking really nice. You can wirelessly remote control your Media Center PC and browse you music collection, create playlists all without needing to touch your Media Center. Again there are free and premium versions available (£4.99 for the paid version) and I am going to give it a try and let you know how I get on with it

You can find vmcMote HD on the App Store via:
