iPhone Remote app gets Genius and playlist editing support

This morning, Apple pushed an update for the Remote application (which is known around these parts as “that thing that lets Greg be a spinmaster DJ and a master chef at the same time”) to the iPhone App store. The application, which allows you to link your iPhone to any iTunes library or AppleTV setup, now has support for the Genius feature added in iTunes 8, along with support for creating and editing remote playlists right on the handset.

I just got finished playing with it, and everything works as expected. Playlist editing is dead simple, and as I already had Genius enabled back on my system, creating a Genius playlist took all of a few seconds. Playlist edits were reflected in an instant.
