Some of the best apps come from developers solving their own problems.
In this case developer Sylvain Nawrocki purchased a LG TV powered by WebOS, and found the smart TV did not support his Windows Phone.
He therefore created his app, LG webOS TV Remote, and thankfully also made it available for free for the rest of the Windows Phone community.
The app supports:
- Standard and advanced functions (volume, channel, media player, keypad, direct access to the Internet Browser, ..)
- Mouse (pointer) : control the mouse with your phone
- Remote Keyboard : Use the keypad on your phone instead of the one displayed on the screen
The following LG TVs are supported:
UB980T, UB980V, LB650, UB850, LB690V, LB671V, LB677V, LB731V, LB6300, LB653V
The free app can be found in the Windows Phone Store here.
