Bestselling VLC Remote goes universal with new look and new features

[] Bristol, United Kingdom – Hobbyist Software Ltd today is pleased to announce an update to the bestselling VLC Remote (R). With 2.5 million downloads, awarded Gizmodo’s ‘Essential iPhone App’ and T3’s ‘Best iPhone Apps’; VLC Remote lets you remotely control your VLC Media Player on your Mac or PC.

Previously available as separate apps for iPhone and iPad VLC Remote is now universal – one app will work on your iPhone and your iPad. No need to buy two copies. Responding to user feedback the universal app features a completely new design for iPad making powerful advanced controls available in a stylish side panel, including a graphic equalizer. With the universal VLC Remote you get full control at a glance – from your iPhone AND your iPad.

As VLC Remote was previously sold as separate iPhone and iPad apps. Both will now be updated to universal apps. Unfortunately there is no way to merge the two existing listings in the app store. This means Hobbyist needs to keep both live to ensure that anyone who has previously paid for VLC Remote gets access to the new universal VLC Remote. So the universal VLC Remote will still appear in the app store for iPad or iPhone, but either app will work on both devices.

Rob Jonson, CEO of Hobbyist Software said “Users will love the new interface and universal app. I just wish we could merge the iPhone and iPad versions to make things simpler in the store, but we want to make sure that everyone who previously bought VLC Remote gets access to the new universal app.”
