I was wondering if there is an app or a way to connect to my MacbookPro to control my iTunes via Bluetooth? I play music through speakers at my workplace via the iTunes on my Macbook, and the computer is high up on top of some display shelves, so its not easy to go change the song on the computer. I've looked at a lot of remote control apps, but they are all used over wifi, and I don't have wifi at my work, so I would like to know if there is a way to control iTunes with my iPhone5 over Bluetooth instead. I haven't been able to find a reasonable answer to this question on any forum yet. Please help.~~

I'd recommend spending $20 for an Apple Remote.

Not a way to do that via Bluetooth that I'm aware of.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

If you live in Australia or a country where you don't have to pay for Tethering, under settings(Well here in Australia anyway) i create a Personal Hotspot, then connect your Mac to the Hotspot created from your phone, then use Apples, free Remote App from the iTunes store and your right to go. If you live in the US the Apple Remote Bobtomay linked you too is the way to go, Unless you have have paid for the Tethering (Im not sure how that works in the US and still think you are being ripped off with this)

Good one - Tethering, if you have that option, would def be something to try also. Hadn't thought of that as I don't have it in my grandfathered unlimited plan.
