Homepad is a great app but I can’t use it because I have no remote for my Airport Express. I know that the x-box controller would work via WIFI and if you could program a bluetooth button to act as the play/pause button on the AE used by home pad, then anyone with a smartphone, tablet, windows pc etc could use the app. Please consider adding this feature to home pad.

I have contacted some companies about controller apps but no one seems interested in creating a AE remote for HomePad. I think that if enough people contact them then they will create it. Here is a list of 3 companies I emailed:
