CasaTunes has announced the first app for Android devices that allows control of multi-room audio gear that it makes. The app is available right now for Android 2.1 or later smartphones and supports Gingerbread as well.

CasaTunes says the app is free for all CasaTunes owners and a trial version will be offered for users to try before they buy CasaTunes hardware. The app is on the Android Market right now.

“With the fast growth of Android devices, we felt that it was important to create a powerful, convenient and easy to use Android application to control our CasaTunes multi-room audio systems,” said Kim Knapp, co-founder of CasaTunes. “With the Android app, homeowners who own one of the new Android based phones or tablets can select and play music in any room of the home where they have CasaTunes music, from anywhere in the home that is covered by their wireless network. Plus, they can create schedules for waking up to music, display and change the currently playing music and create CasaTunes Playlists. The new Android app for CasaTunes gives the owners the capability of complete control of their music from a modern, handheld device.”
