Last year Geo Webb reviewed vmcMote, a Remote Control Media Center App. Now vmcMote HD for the Apple iPad is available.
Here is how Thomas describes vmcMote HD:
Wirelessly remote your Windows Media Center from your iPad! View the current playlist, browse your music library, play/enqueue music, create playlists … all without your TV running.
vmcMote HD let’s you access and control the music functionality of your Windows Vista© or Windows 7 Media Center. It enables you to browse your music library, search it, play/enqueue tracks, view the currently playing track and playlist, create and manage playlists (on device only), enqueue radio streams and much more.
vmcMote HD uses two-way communication and takes advance of the processing and presentation capabilities of the iPad. Have your current playlist in your field of view while selecting new music or create new playlists. In case of horizontal device orientation, a cover wall will give you a convenient way to find albums by cover art.
vmcMote HD concentrates on all the Media Center functionality where you naturally do not need a TV running. But, to serve situations where you need a remote, it also provides a basic key remote and virtual keyboard functionality. vmcMote HD requires a server. It is provided as an Addin for Windows Media Center.

Please note that vmcMote is private project, developed in my spare time after work. Therefore, it is provided “as-is” and without any implied warranty.
