Remote for LG TV

LG Remote is a remote application software that is able to control WebOS of LG TVs. With the capability of remote control, you can easily turn the TV on and off, switch channels, adjust volume, change interaction mode and input methods in order to maximize convenience.

More than a remote controller, this application integrated four features that boost the user experience, including remote control, mirror screen, TV apps shortcut and media casting feature. Four features are in tabs and located at the bottom of the screen. Also, there is a settings tab, but it is application related and does not count as an independent feature.
