We’ve got word that the fabulous Samsung TV Remote App that’s been in Samsung Apps for a while now on Galaxy S / Galaxy Tab is now available for all Android devices version 2.1 and higher. We’re having mixed results, however, and wonder if this announcement came just a bit too early. The App is indeed appearing in the Android Marketplace (where it was not appearing at all whatsoever in the past,) but does not appear on several of our non-Galaxy devices.
This app is one you can use by connecting through Wifi to your brand new TV that accepts such a connection. You’ll be able to use your remote app’s on-screen QWERTY keyboard, control settings, and run Samsung Apps on your TV. A four-way directional pad is another control you can use, and televisions included in this neat project are thus, as listed by Samsung: “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.”
The image above is what the app will look like to you in the Android Marketplace if you’re able to see it. Once you download it, or if you’re unable to see the app in the market, let us know below – we’re interested in which phones this app works with.
Samsung Continuum – Yes
LG Optimus U – No
Samsung Nexus S – No
