    Hi

    When my iPad's docked and plugged into my speakers, I often want to change the music that's playing remotely. Is there any app that allows me to use my iphone via wifi or even bluetooth? There seem to be plenty of apps that allow me to control my computer with either Apple device, but I want one to use the other....

    Cheers

    Found it

    It's weird because I spent a few days looking for a solution (including stumbling across this site). After posting my question I found two apps:

    1. Music remote. This allows you to connect to your device via a browser. It cost me nz $5.29 and was absolutely dreadful. The interface uses ugly HTML frames and didn't respond to my clicks. It also crashed a couple of times. Wish I could get my money back
    2. Tango remote control music player is exactly what I was after. It has a really nice interface and is very responsive. Unlike the other solution I tried, it was free and works equally well on an iPad or an iPhone.

    If you have airport express then you can use your iPad/iPhone as a remote but it won't be docked and it connects to your iTunes wirelessly instead and you put a cable from your speakers to airport express.

    Not what your after but is a good alternative.
