Just music. I understand that it's a remote and not like iTunes. I just thought that as my iPad is connected to wifi and linked to apple I could play music through the remote at anytime even if the laptop was turned off
It does work via WiFi - but the laptop must be turned on for this to work. You are accessing the iTunes library on your computer - not accessing anything stored in the cloud. The computer must be turned on - and iTunes must be running as well.
