Although it sells phones that run few different platforms, Samsung decided not to forget about its iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad-ownin’ users. Hence, they’ve released a dedicated remote control application in the AppStore.
As you can presume, using it you can control your TV from a comfort of your beloved handset/media player. The application supports both on-screen controls as well as gesture-based control for changing volume and channels.
The problem (if that’s a problem at all), however, is that you need to have one of the newer Samsung TVs. The official line is that the application will sing along only the 2010 models with Internet@TV. Moreover, a TV set should be WiFi-enabled — you can buy a USB WiFi dongle if wireless connectivity doesn’t come built in. One wonders what happens with 2009 models which also support Internet@TV? Are they not supported, or Samsung just wants to get more people to buy new TVs?
Anyway, the application is free (you did pay a small fortune for a compatible TV, after all), and you can grab it from the link below.
