Sonos has spilt the beans on its upcoming Sonos Controller for iPad app, set for release in August 2010. The new app, specially designed to take advantage of the iPad’s 9.7-inch display, will turn the tablet into a touchscreen controller for the multi-room audio system, allowing users to control playback in each of their zones – either individually or linked together in party mode.

As well as local sources, Sonos Controller for iPad will also support internet radio as well as various online streaming media services such as Pandora, Last.fm and Napster. Volume levels for all zones can be controlled from a single slider, or managed individually.
Sonos Controller for iPad will be a free download from August 2010.
