Samsung's Smart Touch Android Remote App

Samsung Smart Touch appIf any of you reading this article are smartphone users and avid television watchers, then Android has an app for you. Samsung's Smart Touch Android remote app is finally available in the Android Marketplace as a free download. This download comes nearly nine months after it was originally released on iOS.

If you threw down a hefty amount of cash on a new model C Samsung TV recently and are eagerly awaiting the day your Samsung smartphone can replace yet another piece of your everyday technology, then today could be the best day ever. Based on reviews the app currently has an average 4-star review but there are a lot of reports about crashing and error reports.

The app works with any Samsung Galaxy S smartphone as well as the Samsung Galaxy Tab as a remote for your television and uses Wi-Fi to connect to your Samsung television. There are a lot of cool features that come with this app that offer things a traditional remote cannot do. You can use the on-screen QWERTY keyboard to input information for TV functions, control settings and make it easier to navigate Samsung apps.

A 4-way directional pad allows you to easily navigate apps, and the application is compatible with a wide variety of 2010 Samsung TV models including the LED C6500 series and higher, the LCD C650 series and higher and the plasma C6500 series and higher. The app will also be compatible with select 2011 smart TVs.

This is the second television remote app launched by Samsung to date. Samsung made available a similar app for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad last year in order to allow users an easy way to navigate their smart TVs. The app is literally brand new so there are very few reviews out on it but, like I said earlier, it does have an average rating of 4 stars. The app is currently available now for Samsung Galaxy S smartphones as well as the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

  1. So this is definitely a great way to get more use out of your phone with a new TV! Another great way to get the most use out of your phone is with Dish Networks new Sling box. As a subscriber of Dish and an employee I was able to pick up a sling adapter and it enables me to stream TV straight to my phone or mobile device!
