Created for those with specific Yamaha A/V receivers (V2065, V3900, Z7), this application allows for multi-zone control of said receiver.  You have the ability to power it on and off, control volume and change inputs within zones.  The receiver does require a wired connection into your home network though.  Link (Free)

Ideal for installers, the official Crestron application offers control of your Crestron controlled devices.  For iPhone users, it also works with the 3G and Edge networks in case you forget to turn off anything in your house.   Assuming you have the proper Crestron hardware, you can control your home theater components, lighting and climate directly from your client’s iPhone.  The interface is simple and easy for the consumer to understand.  Link ($99.99)   Note: There’s also a free version to try as well.
