I use iTunes and I have it connected to my receiver with an Airport Express. It works brilliantly. I also have an iPod Touch with the free app you speak of (I think it's just called Remote or iTunes Remote), and that also works brilliantly. I have a 2 zone Yamaha receiver in the TV room that receives iTunes wirelessly, then I have wires that go from the Yamaha to the backyard where I have a second small receiver and it can receive iTunes too. With the iPod Touch, I use the app to control iTunes and it allows me to see the entire music library and all of the playlists. The only issue I have is with the Airport Express. I use an AT&T 2Wire wireless modem so I can use my iPod, but I can't get the Airport Express to join the 2Wire modem. The workaround is that on the Mac, I can choose "Location", and that allows me to either use the 2Wire or the Airport Express, but I can't use both simultaneously. No big thing. It just means that if I am using iTunes wirelessly on my Mac, I can't use the Internet on my iMac, which uses the hard-wired 2Wire modem. But, the iPod Touch can still access the Internet wirelessly, which is a good substitute.
