I have been using this app for years and it is great. After a really bad computer issue I had to reinstall my windows 10 and all my apps. I lost my remote pairing with itunes 12 and was pulling my hair out trying to find the remote pairing. I tried all the firewall suggestions, etc. It worked easily by connecting my pixel to my computer by usb and rebooting itunes. When I did this a small icon shows up just to the right of the pull-down menu on the left half of the window. by clicking on the icon ( which looks like a little triangle) a window opens for the connection code. it took me a few times to get the timing between the remote code and natural obsolescence to work out. but .... thank GOD I now have music again!

an excellent choice for controlling your itunes from your phone. normally works very well, pauses for incoming calls, reconnects on app startup. Best of all, unlike DLNA, if you start an album it is queued and will play the whole thing even if you turn off the phone. Also, the volume buttons on the phone will control itunes own volume control - useful when the computer is connected to the amp with optical cable and the normal volume control of the computer is not available!
