Apple developing iTunes management application for iPod and iPhone

    Apple is keeping a close eye on third party developers offering applications for iTunes, and the company is now hard at work on a new application that would allow an iPhone or iPod Touch to serve as a “remote” for local iTunes libraries. This software would enable a user to control playback away from the computer and also give those with huge libraries an opportunity to more easily manage their material. Previously for this type of flexibility, users were forced to use third party software such as Remote Buddy. While these applications are a workable alternative, an Apple version will undoubtedly have increased ease of use on the platform and offer expandability much quicker. [Wired]
