Logitech Squeeze Remote for Android

Not a lot of people seem to know that Logitech support an awesome streaming audio server open source project called Squeeze Center. It nicely brings together audio from various sources and make it available to players on your local network. I've been especially liking the ease at which I can switch from my own media collection, to some streaming radio from anywhere on the globe, and then over to music from All from a piece of consumer hardware.

Since I always have my Android phone on me (and don't want to carry around a logitech remote), it seemed only natural to start working on a remote client for Android. Last week we released the finished product called Squeeze Remote for Android. Similar to the hardware remote, it will auto-discover all your Squeeze players and allow you to fully control them. You can select tracks from your music library or select a streaming radio source. Download it now from the Android market place.
