Review

The LG TV Remote app transforms your regular smartphone into a remote control for your LG Smart TV. It works through Wi-Fi and connects your mobile device to your Smart TV to help you search, control, and view whatever content you choose.

Design 4/5

Using a very basic layout, the LG TV Remote app is extremely user-friendly. All the functions, features, and options are available at your fingertips to make your viewing experience as comfortable as possible. The controls for volume, channels, apps, home, and other specialized features are clear and easy to find.

Even in Touchpad mode, the controls are set for maximum convenience. All your favorite apps are presented and can be launched with a single touch. You can even sort your apps into different folders for quicker access.

Content and Features 4/5

With the LG TV Remote app installed on your mobile device, you can watch your favorite TV shows, movies, news channels, sports, and so much more, right on your smartphone or tablet. The app is feature filled and takes your viewing experience to the next level.

With MiniTV, you will never have to fight over the TV remote again. Now, you can watch sports games, reality shows, cooking channels, news, movies, and more without having to fight other members of the home.

The MiniHome feature gives you access to Premium Content Providers from around the world so that you never miss your international drama series again.

MyApps lets you save all your favorite apps in one place so you can always access them instantly. One standout feature is the Touchpad which lets you use your mobile screen as a trackpad to navigate the on-screen pointer on the TV. Search for all your content by simply typing a keyword for it through the SmartText feature.

For 2013 and later models, the app lets you open, view, and share content from YouTube and other such sites.

User Experience 4/5

With the LG TV Remote app, you get a lot of functionality and features, but there is something that is missing. While some users have had exceptional experiences with the app, others say it needs work. One of the major disadvantages is the lack of a keyboard.

This makes searching for content rather difficult. The Touchpad feature is also quite difficult to master and requires a lot of patience. Device compatibility is another issue that users have faced with the app working flawlessly on some and not so much on others.

The app also lacks a Power button to help users turn their TV's off.

Devices 5/5

The LG TV Remote app is compatible with both smartphones and tablets. It is supported on Android, iOS, and Windows devices.

Final Point

All-in-all, the LG TV Remote app is a useful and handy tool to have around the house when your SmartTV remote fails to deliver. It offers a plethora of features and functions that match up to its simplistic design and user-friendly interface.

With features such as Touchpad, MiniTV, and MiniHome, you will never have to worry about missing out on your favorite shows, movies, news channels, or sports games ever again. The app has quite a lot of positives, but also comes with a handful of negatives that could keep away potential users.

The compatibility issue is one such negative as the app works well on some devices and not so well on others. Without a keyboard to help you search for your content, users might be forced to look elsewhere for their mobile TV remote.
