Apple has launched version 2.0 of its Remote app for iOS. In a nutshell, Apple Remote lets you use your iPhone or iPod touch  as a remote control for iTunes on your computer or an Apple TV set top box.

Version 2.0 adds support for the Retina display on the latest iPhone and iPod touch. It also supports the iPad. It also adds support for Shared Libraries, and compatibility with iTunes 10.

As you’d expect from a remote control app, Remote lets you pause, rewind, fast forward, shuffle, or adjust the volume of audio and video playback. It also whos album artwork while you’re viewing, and can even generate Genius playlists.

Apple Remote 2.0 is available as a free download from the App Store. It requires iOS 4.0 to work properly.
