We have an iPad in office, which we use to play music when not being used for mobile app testing (etc.).

Is there a way to remote control volume from desktop (OS X)?

Thank you, that looks interesting... Anything free? For OS X 10.5? :) – Martin Tóth Jul 13 '11 at 12:48
I don't think that you will be able to find anything else that doesn't require Jailbreaking... I know that you can jailbreak and then use VLC to control your iPad. – Odinulf Jul 13 '11 at 12:54
I see, thank you. – Martin Tóth Jul 13 '11 at 14:17
If you are satisfied with my answer, I would appreciate it if you accepted it. – Odinulf Jul 13 '11 at 14:24
