Onkyo's iOS App Upgrade Adds Multi-Room Music Control

Posted Mon Nov 7, 2011 at 07:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

The Onkyo Remote 2 is available now on iTunes.

Smartphones and tablets are wonderful things. They allow you to talk to people sure, but the handy touchscreen devices are capable of so much more, like controlling your home theater gear.

Onkyo's newest iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad app is simply called Onkyo Remote 2 and it adds a few goodies that weren't in the original. You'll get a completely redesigned interface as well as access to commonly used controls like audio adjustments and source switching.

Where the Onkyo Remote 2 really sets itself apart is in the ability to control zones in a multi-room setup. If you've got music coming from multiple sources and going to multiple destinations, you can arrange it over Wi-Fi with your iOS device.

The new app is available for free on iTunes.
