iTunes 7.7 (not available for download yet) reveals the iPhone or iPod Touch can be used to remotely control iTunes. This will be a free app from the App Store by Apple. Here’s a piece of the Read Me file:
Use iTunes 7.7 to sync music, video, and more with iPhone 3G, and download applications from the iTunes Store exclusively designed for iPhone and iPod touch with software version 2.0 or later. Also use the new Remote application for iPhone or iPod touch to control iTunes playback from anywhere in your home — a free download from the App Store.
I assume the connection will be made over wifi on a local network. I dream of a beautiful app with playlists, album art, track info etc.
