Fort Collins, Colo. -
has launched what it calls the custom-install industry's first Android app to control an installed multiroom-audio system.
The Wi-Fi-based app works with Android tablets and cellphones running the Android 2.1 or later OS, including the recently released Gingerbread 2.3 version.
CasaTunes multiroom audio systems are already capable of being controlled from an iPhone/iPoid Touch and from a PC's Web browser.
The new app controls CasaTunes systems incorporating the company's multiroom-audio music server as well as Nuvo and Russound multiroom systems incorporating the server.
With the Android app, consumers can view their server's song selection on their mobile device's screen and select songs for playback in any room of the house. Also with the app, consumers can also create schedules for waking up to music and create playlists.
It's a free upgrade for CasaTunes owners and is available in the Android Marketplace. Users must search for CasaTunes in the Marketplace.
