Apple has released an update to its Remote app for iOS that brings improvements for search results, rating songs, sorting podcasts, and more.

Remote is designed to be in perfect sync with the new iTunes. It is simpler, easier, and gives you new ways to browse your library and see upcoming songs with Up Next. With just a few taps on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, you can add new songs to hear them next from iTunes on a Mac or PC, or an Apple TV. Choose playlists, songs, and albums as if you were in front of your computer or Apple TV. Or play them from iCloud with iTunes Match on Apple TV. Change a song, pick a playlist, or browse your entire library from anywhere in your home. Control your Apple TV with the flick of your finger or use the keyboard to quickly tap out a title instead of clicking letters on the Apple TV screen.

• Control iTunes and Apple TV from anywhere in your home
• A simplified look with new ways to browse your library
• See upcoming songs with Up Next

I can only see two new things: - send audio to airplay speakers: i think this is the coolest feature; i can finally give my TV the needed boost with my wireless airplay speakers in the corner of my TV room! Nice!! - type with keyboard - not sure I will hauling the keyboard around to my tv room. besides typing on the phone is fast enough. i am not writing e.t. a 10 paged love letter.
