SMote.TV is a virtual Universal Infrared Television Remote that fits out-of-the-box with all SAMSUNG Plasma, LCD and LED TV - without any pre-configuration or additional hardware required!
Look and feel is a perfekt mix between a real television remote and a modern android app with a special focus on ergonomy. It's a powerful universal infrared blaster that covers a big set of your Plasma, LED or LCD TV's basic and special functions - 69 unique Buttons, many which other apps often cannot provide. Some functions even can't be found on your original Samsung remote, for example you cann access your video input sources directly!
In order to work properly, your smartphone MUST have an inbuilt infrared-blaster! You cannot use SMote.TV if your device isn't IR-ready, it will definitely not work without infrared port / sensor! You can only control Samsung televisions with SMote.TV, other manufacturers like Panasonic, Phillips or Toshiba will not work.
Smote.TV has been designed to run on SAMSUNG phones and tablets with built-in IR port. But other IR-enabled devices might also work, since manufacturers now integrate an IR-blaster into their hardware, give it a try :)

HOW TO USE
It's simple: Point your smartphone directly towards your TV and press a button. On some devices it might even work when sending IR signals indirectly (white walls work better than dark ones).
The working range is about 3-5 meters. With low battery your inbuilt IR-blaster might not work properly or loose some range (especially < 5% battery), but SMote.TV itself does not use much power.
