There is a monitor/display like icon at the bottom of the Now Playing screen of the Remote app on iPad. It's just to the right of the genius icon. What is it?

Just curious, but why didn't you click on it? – daviesgeek Nov 9 '11 at 22:28
Clicking the icon has no visible effect on the iPad other than highlighting the icon. I was wondering about this too. I wasn't looking at the Mac's screen. – SSteve Apr 14 '12 at 5:04

That icon activates the visualiser in iTunes
