Control iTunes with Retune for Android

Check out Retune by SquallyDoc Studios on the Android Play store. It is available for free and out of the 5 remote iTunes apps I tried this was the best one by far. Installation is simple, connect your iTunes and PC to the same wi-fi network, start iTunes on your PC then Retune on your android device. A remote icon appears on your iTunes where you then put in the code that appears on Retune and you are connected. This only needs to be done the first time you are setting up Retune. After this it is easy to connect, play your playlists, adjust volume and it even bring up your album covers. I really enjoy this app!

Below are the developers details of the Retune app:
