What LG TV Remote app is

This is an app created to simplify your Smart TV navigation and improve your viewer’s experience in case your TV set model is new enough: if your TV was manufactured in 2011 and earlier, choose the app ‘LG TV Remote 2011’. LG Company decided to use all the benefits expanding mobile industry provides and launched a bunch of apps with remote control and other fancy functions to build customer loyalty and help people get up from their sofas even less often. Our mark is 9/10.

Interface

To begin with, pair your TV and your mobile device through the same Wi-Fi network. It will take a minute and works flawlessly for most of the users. After the pairing is complete, it’s time to dramatically simplify your communication with LG Smart TV and take your opportunities beyond limits.

The design of the app is nice and appealing. It is built around grey and pink colors and each button is created the way it fits the user grab to operate using only one hand. The app has a few screens:

  • LG Smart TV;
  • Touch Pad – magic remote, where you can move and control pointer on the TV screen;
  • Mini Home – get in-app access to premium Content Providers and MyApps service;
  • This app really simplifies the life to LG TV owner and has an attractive design. My mark is 10/10.

Performance and usability

The in-app navigation is straightforward, there is no chance that you get lost. Perhaps not all available functions will be used, but it’s nice to have them anyway.

The main features LG TV Remote app provides are:

Mini TV with live channel watching right from your mobile device – great if you want to watch NBA taking a shower, for example. Please, note that Mini TV feature – continuously watching live broadcast is available not for all channels. It supports DTV, ATV, AV/SCART & COMP.

  • Quick volume and channel control;
  • Easy-to-navigate list of channels and input list;
  • SmartText – easy text input on the mobile screen in most of the environments;
  • QuickMemo – capture TV screen, add comments, humour and whatever you want;
  • Unified search – use keywords to search for all Smart TV contents (including web platforms like YouTube);
  • Smartshare – watch and share your files using big screen;
  • ON NOW – recommendations based on what you searched or watched previously.

App performance is stable, no crashes or disconnections noticed. My mark is 10 out of 10.

Cross-platform use

The app requires that you had a device working on Android 2.2 or later (it means it works on 99,9% of Android devices). For Apple devices: the app works on iOS 6.1 and later. Supports iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch. In the latest version of the app developers added iPhone 9.0 support. There is some product available for Windows Phones, so there is a chance you can have a high-quality APK. For platform support, I rate the app with 10/10.

The Verdict

For sure give it a try, if you watch LG Smart TV and want to take your experience to the new level. A great feature I use a lot is an opportunity to watch videos and photos from your mobile phone in a few clicks and use it as a handy and never-being-lost remote. I recommend it.
