So what I'm trying to achieve is using my iPad 2 as a media player and I want to be able to control it from my iPhone so I can leave it playing music/movies and I can control the volume, play and pause it without having to manipulate the iPad. Is this possible? Is there any app that allows to control an iDevice from another iDevice? Please advise. Thanks in advance.

I found Tunes Remote which looks like it fits perfectly and it can be downloaded from the App Store. Does anybody know it?

No, that app controls a computer running iTunes, not another iOS device. – daviesgeek Apr 19 '12 at 21:52
@daviesgeek you sure? This is what I read in the description: "Note: to control iTunes on your Desktop you would want to use the Apple 'Remote' App. Tunes Remote works the other way around: it lets you control your iPod Touch or iPhone." – Jorge Apr 19 '12 at 21:55
Oh. I read your link as "iTunes Remote" Haha! Sorry 'bout that! – daviesgeek Apr 19 '12 at 21:59
