Samsung Smart Touch Android remote app hands-on
As people's lives become overrun with more gadgets, they want a simple way to manage and connect their devices.
· Samsung now offers a new app that allows you to use your Samsung Galaxy S smartphone and Galaxy Tab as a TV remote in lieu of the traditional TV remote. The TV app uses Wi-Fi to connect with the TV.
· You can use the remote's on-screen QWERTY keyboard to input necessary information for TV functions, control settings and Samsung Apps on the TV
· A 4-way directional pad makes it easier to navigate apps
· The application is compatible with a broad variety of 2010 models, including the LED C6500 series and higher, the LCD C650 series and higher, and the Plasma C6500 series and higher. It will also support select 2011 smart TVs.
This is the second TV remote app that Samsung has launched to date. Last year, Samsung made available a similar app for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, to allow users an easy way to navigate their home entertainment experience.
The Samsung TV remote app for Galaxy S smartphones and Galaxy Tabs is available through the Android Marketplace today.
