Apple's Remote application for the iPhone and iPod touch has been updated, bringing the current version of the application to 1.1. Apple said the new version allows you to create Genius playlists and create and edit playlists in iTunes.

The app lets users control their iTunes library from their iPhone or iPod. It also controls an Apple TV when using one of the devices with a home theatre.

Using Remote you can scroll through playlists, artists, genres and search your music. When playing Remote will show you the album artwork of the current song and allow you to adjust star ratings and other settings, just like you would on an iPod.

Remote is a free download from the App Store.
