Sonos has introduced iPhone software which controls its products and also adds support for Pandora and Last.fm.

Sonos Controller for iPhone is available for free download from the App Store and allows users to control the Sonos Multi-Room Music System. 

Simply pick a room, pick a song and hit play. Play the same song in every room in perfect synchronization, or play different songs in every room. Browse by pointing and flicking.

The Sonos Controller for iPhone also promises direct access to music services including Last.fm, Napster, Pandora, Rhapsody, SIRIUS Internet Radio, 15,000 plus radio stations, shows and more. The software also offers users control over their entire music collection located on any computer on their home network, a Network Attached Storage (NAS) drive and even a Time Capsule.

"The Sonos Controller for iPhone is another example of Sonos offering features and applications that make the system better, at no cost to our current or future customers," said John MacFarlane, CEO, Sonos. "Today’s announcement enables all of our customers to use a great personal product from Apple to control the world’s best multi-room music system."

The Sonos Controller for iPhone requires an iPhone or iPod touch and at least one Sonos ZonePlayer to operate. 

In conjunction with the new Sonos Controller for iPhone, today Sonos also introduced Sonos Software 2.7. This includes new support for a suite of music content including free access to more than 15,000 radio stations and podcasts from around the world, Last.fm and Pandora.

And here’s a video showing how it works, OK?
