I just tested the newest version of MonkeyTunes and Apple Remote 2.0 and together they're awesome. Finally I can use the whole iPad screen to conveniently search and select music.
Actually that's what I bought an iPad for in the first place. But I didn't expect Apple to take so long to release an iPad version. So I had to wait 5 month for Apple and a few hours for Melloware
They literally fixed everything that wasn't working on the iPad overnight.
There are a few things you apparently cannot do with the new Remote 2.0 under MediaMonkey/MonkeyTunes, like playing back movies or TV, but it's the perfect remote for my large music collection. And fast....
One drawback of the Remote app is the way Apple handles it's "Now Playing" list, because for whatever strange reasons they show you the album of the currently playing track instead of the actual "Now Playing" list. But there's a remedy for that in the latest version of MonkeyTunes, it simply uses the "Titles" menu to display the "Now Playing" list from MM and I tested it with 5000 tracks, hehe
Another great feature is the Search, it's fast and the results are sorted by Albums, Artists and Titles (i.e. our current Now Playing list !!), which makes searching for music even more convenient and quicker than in MM itself.
