Helium Remote for iOS

Helium Remote is a client iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch application that enables you to remotely control Helium Music Manager. 

This application is ideal if you want to control Helium Music Manager away from your PC. It uses the Wi-Fi connection to receive playing information and to send control commands to Helium Music Manager from anywhere in and around your home. You can therefore become a remote DJ and control music for your parties without having to be near to your PC. 

Helium Remote interacts with Helium Music Manager's in-built Web Service to control the playing of music tracks in the current Play Queue. It will not play any sound on the iPhone device as the Helium Remote App is just functioning as a remote control. It enables the playback of Playlists, Searches, Suggested Tracks and User Favourites. Details of the currently playing track are shown; as is information about the playing track's artist. 

The application is currently available with English, Swedish and German translations.
