    Apple Remote with iPod and iPhone

    If you connect your iPod to a home stereo, powered speakers, or TV set, the Apple Remote lets you experience your songs, slideshows, and more from across the room. Plug your iPod into the Apple Universal Dock and choose a playlist, slideshow, or video. Then sit back, relax, and enjoy. Ready to move on to the next song? No need to get up. Just press the Next button on the Apple Remote. Getting a call on your iPhone? Press Pause, then pick up where you left off.

    Apple Remote with Mac

    The Apple Remote gives you total command of your music, photos, videos, and DVDs from anywhere in the room. Turn up the volume. Shuffle. Skip to the next chapter on your DVD. Play a slideshow, a home movie you made in iMovie, even a movie trailer.

    Keep in mind, Apple TV can only connect to one remote at a time. If you wish to play multiple player games, you’ll need an iOS device or controller.

      The most annoying remote on the planet - I would give it no stars.

Fix up your time-wasting remote.

      Sometimes Just Being Pretty Isn't Good Enough

      Yes, it's sleek and lovely. No, it isn't a very good remote. Too many touches to get where you want to go. Entering usernames and passwords to connect with s Yes, it's sleek and lovely. No, it isn't a very good remote. Too many touches to get where you want to go. Entering usernames and passwords to connect with services is a nightmare. (God forbid I actually ever change a password!) We call one of ours the "Republican" remote because it won't go left. Love the Apple TV and own 4 of them in our house. Remote needs Redo.

      Worst remote

      Yes it looks sleek, but it is the worst remote and way over priced for the functionality (select, rewind, fast forward...that's it). Not only is it very limited Yes it looks sleek, but it is the worst remote and way over priced for the functionality (select, rewind, fast forward...that's it). Not only is it very limited, it is the tiniest remote that easily gets lost in a busy household. When it gets lost, Apple tv becomes a box that collects dust.

Apple TV Remote? Sexy design, but terribly impractical. Here's a tip: Next time you need to purchase a sofa, take your remote with you. Drop it on the sofa, either near the arm or the back edge of the cushion. Buy the sofa that has easiest access to the secret TV remote hiding places. You're welcome.

      Great Remote Don't Listen to the others

      This remote is solid. It works fine. The problem with it is this software. The apple tv is sort of outdated in terms trying to search for items. You have to go This remote is solid. It works fine. The problem with it is this software. The apple tv is sort of outdated in terms trying to search for items. You have to go one letter at a time. It could be solved by be able to use your phone to search for items. Anyhow, my middle button stopped working after about 3 years. It's only $20 so you can't expect it to last a lifetime. I love apple tv, its a great way to listen to music and watch shows. I use it exclusively for content consumption.
