This app works if your phone and your TV are connected to the same WiFi network. HOWEVER, I live in an area where we just don't have good internet connection so instead I have separate ones for different things. That being said, I can't even pair my phone with my TV in the first place so that I can see if I like the functionality of this app. And I know that it is possible to pair your phone and your TV in another way because the pairing with the YouTube app works perfectly. Also, why the hell does a 4G OLED TV NOT have an HBO app (although it has Netflix installed?)??? LG, you are making my life harder than you should...
Works great when it works. The big problem is you can't turn on the TV with it because it requires a network connection for both the phone and TV. For whatever the reason I have to reset my whole network at the modem to get the app to recognize the TV again. Too much hassle for what it does. Maybe if they came out with a wifi direct function (which my TV supports) that doesn't require a home network I'll try it again.
Pointless. I was having issues with the original magic remote draining the batteries and replacing them once a month! Hence downloaded this app. But guess what? I still need the magic remote to switch tv on then pair it with the app before being able to use it. Uninstalled and straight down to local supermarket to stock up on AA batteries.
I just bought my TV at the beginning of February and couldn't get it to pair until I rebooted my router. It worked for all of five minutes then lost its pairing. The app has updated a couple of times since then but, still, the only way I can get it to pair is to reboot my router and it only lasts for maybe five minutes.
Useless. Slow. Not thought out well. It takes ages to type something with this old-fashioned input. Why can't we use our phone's keyboard? And who ever wanted to move a cursor around at a TV?? It's 2017, please update your design interface accordingly.
It's a really good app for when you can't find the remote. The track pad can't be able little clumsy at times, and recently there have been issues with the app running in the background, but all in all, a solid app!
