Pioneer home entertainment apps

Pioneer has released two news apps – Air Jam and iControlAV2 – that will turn any iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch into sources for entertainment and control with the company’s latest AV receivers and/or Blu-ray players.

Pioneer’s new Air Jam App allows users to share their favorite music tracks directly through the receiver and can also simultaneously connect up to four devices to the receiver via Bluetooth, giving users the ability to create a group playlist with each device’s music content.

The iControlAV2 App offers home theatre control directly on the screen of iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch for a multitude of functions. Both the Air Jam App and iControlAV2 App are available for free from the App Store at

Great for parties and other functions, the Air Jam App turns an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch into a song server at the touch of a button.

By downloading the free app from the App Store and launching it on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, users can cue songs from their music library for playback over Bluetooth on the Pioneer receiver with the simplicity of drag and drop.

Once Air Jam is launched, each device will display the list of songs and artists added by all connected users and the device from which each song will play. During the session, each user can shuffle, select, and control the playlist.

Following the session, users can recall past playlists and purchase songs from the iTunes Store with a simple touch of the screen.

This app is further enhanced when used on an iPad, with most major functions combined into a single, intuitive screen and sound adjustments means that users can create their own equalizer settings with a simple “touch and draw” on the screen.

The iControlAV2 App also includes Blu-ray player control when connected to a compatible Pioneer Blu-ray player.
