LG Magic Remote updated, switch channels by writing numbers

LG Magic Remote heads to Android, switch channels by writing numbers

You love your LG Magic Remote, but you're sick of pushing buttons to switch channels, right? Well, that's kinda weird, but thankfully LG doesn't agree with us, today detailing a previously revealed update to its Magic Remote that allows you to change the channel by writing numbers. Sure, it probably takes less time to actually push a button to switch a channel, but who're we to judge your channel changing preferences? The Android version of LG's app already has the update, and we expect we'll see it arrive elsewhere very soon.
