Open iTunes to buy and download apps.

Description

The Hifi-Remote App allows you to control your personal HIFIDELIO Music Center. Browse through your music collection, start, stop and skip songs from your playlist, listen to songs randomly, repeat your favorite song, adjust the volume or mute the music. The Hifi-Remote App displays current song information and provides remote standby as well as remote shutdown.

FIRMWARE 2.4 IS *NOT* REQUIRED!

The Hifi-Remote App communicates with the Leonore web interface and therefore does not require an update to firmware 2.4!

Your Hifidelio Music Center is automatically detected for easy configuration.

Customer Reviews

Good; could be better

With one caveat (read below), this does what it claims to do. Whether it's worth $8 in its current form is debatable.

The good: you can control a Hidelio or a compatible Olive version from an iPhone using Leonore without having to resize every screen. (With a browser, you have to tap or pinch each page to enlarge it so that you can click on the links.

The bad: (1) DO NOT USE THIS APP IF YOU NEED TO SWITCH BETWEEN TWO HIFIDELIO/OLIVE DEVICES. I have two and the app really only can be used to control one, as switching between them is nearly impossible with this app Apparently, the app caches data from whichever unit you control first, so even after you switch ip addresses, you'll still find the previous unit's data. Trying to refresh the data results in a mishmash of both units' data.
(2). The app can't display certain characters. This appears to be a limitation of Linux, as a rooted music directory on a Hifidelio device has the same display failing. However, there obviously are ways to get around this, as the Hifidelio devices themselves accurately display the characters on their own screens, and this app should do the same thing.
(3). Some artists do not have their album titles display in the app when you click on their names, even though the Hifidelio device's own screen displays that information just fine when you click on the artist name.
(4) Navigation is primitive. If you click on an album name, you get a screen that displays the tracks, as expected. However, when you then click on one of the tracks and it begins to play, you get taken to the home screen again and not the track listing as you'd expect if you use the "back" arrow. Similarly, if you try to browse listings while playing a song, the song stops playing if you drill down into any of the options. This is not how the Hifidelio device screens navigate.
(5) This doesn't do anything you can't do for free with Safari or for $5 with a VNC app, none of which has problems controlling multiple units.
(6). It's not very pretty.

In short, this could be a lot better, especially if it mimicked more closely the existing device controls.
