You need an App :)
There's a free one from Logitech and iPeng from me (not free).
Search the App Store for Squeezebox.
If you run the server, everything else you need is WiFi

I love the iPeng iPhone app. Well worth the money.

ok so I downloaded the free" ipeng party" app for now to see if I can get it working then I will purchase the full app.
I can now see my 2 SB3's and their current playlist and it updates when the songs change, but I can't change the songs from the app?
I should be able to right ?

You can add tracks to the end of the playlist.
That's the idea behind iPeng party: it's a party app that does allow your guests to add tracks but not to change or destroy your overall playlist or otherwise manipulate your player (synchronization, volume,...)

So the ipeng party is not what I'm looking for.
will the regular ipeng app allow me to play different songs from my music folder, stop/start and change volume ?
Those are the kinds of functions that I'm looking for...

another satisfied iPeng user here. It's a great app - I wouldn't be without it.

And iPeng HD for iPad...
