I have actually been waiting for this. Now you can really operate “PC-Free” with an iPad.


Tried to locate it on my iPad.  It doesn’t show up in the currently released IOS.  It shows up on my Mac in the iTunes store, but won’t load on the present OS.  The message is that I need a more current OS.  Trying to be patient here.


$&%# FINALLY!!!!!!!

Nothing further, your honor.

now all we need is ^%$#@%$# iOS 5….


Perhaps this app works with the latest Airport Express. However, it DOES NOT work with the original Airport Express. I have the original model. Though this router shows up in the app, when I click on it, the app reports that it is not able to manage this router and I should use the original software that came with it. Why, Apple?
