Sonos Releases iPad Controller App

Sonos announced Wednesday the release of Sonos Controller for iPad, a controller app for the company’s S5 all-in-one systems and ZonePlayers. The company has had an iPhone controller app for some time, but the iPad app has been redesigned for its larger interface.

Features of the app:

  • Wirelessly stream millions of songs and stations all over the house and control it all right from your iPad—no computer required.
  • Instantly access unlimited music from iTunes and the Internet.
  • Play the music stored on your computer or NAS drive or Apple Time Capsule (so you can play even when the computer is off).
  • Play the same song in every room or different songs in every room.
  • Control the music selection and volume in each room individually.
  • Search for any song with the touch-screen keyboard.
  • Drag and drop songs or albums into the queue or now playing pane.
  • Wake up or fall asleep to your favorite music or Internet radio station with full-featured alarms.
  • Set up or expand the Sonos system wirelessly with a touch of a finger.

The app is a free download. The company’s ZonePlayers are priced at US$399.
