If you find the 8 GB or 16 GB on your iPhone too less then you might want to checkout this iPhone application called Remote Buddy.

Remote Buddy makes it possible to stream compatible iTunes media such as music, video and movies  on your computer directly to your iPhone.

Remote Buddy has been developed by a German company called IOSPIRIT. Here are some of the things Remote Buddy can do as an iTunes remote & media playback device: Livesearch, music library browsing, editing playlists, switching AirTunes speakers, playback of compatible iTunes media directly on the iPhone ("streaming"), rating songs, viewing covers, setting volume, repeat, playback position and shuffle. As you would have noticed there’s hardly an aspect of iTunes, that you could not control through Remote Buddy.


Remote Buddy is currently available for Mac users and ships as a
Universal Binary. It costs 19.99 € but before you buy it you can
checkout the 30-day trial version.

Setting up Remote Buddy as your iTunes Remote seems quite simple, follow the instructions below to use your iPhone as an iTunes Remote:

After downloading from this link and starting Remote Buddy, click on its icon in the Menubar and select "Preferences".

In the toolbar, click on "AJAX Remote", then activate the checkbox in front of "Enable AJAX Remote".

Then, set a password for the AJAX Remote.

If you want to be able to view your Desktop on your iPhone, make sure that Allow viewing the desktop via the browser is checked

Under "Interfaces and URLs you can use to access AJAX Remote", you’ll find the URLs you can use to access your Mac via your iPhone.

We have already seen two solutions that had brought streaming of iTunes media library to the iPhone which you might want to checkout: one of them was the iPhone application called Dot.Tunes and other is an iPhone trick.

It will be great to get your feedback on Remote Buddy in the comments below.
