Awarded Gizmodo's “Essential iPhone App” three years running. Awarded T3's “Best iPhone Apps”.
The free version is identical to the paid version except for two things:
1) The free version shows adverts.
2) The free version won't let you browse to open files from the remote. You'll have to get up of your sofa and do that manually until you upgrade!
“The new VLC Remote app is simply stunning! It works a treat and it feels professional and powerful. Love it.”
- Adam, London
