Buying Advice: what You need to know about Tv

Remote control apps: tedious election

The search for the appropriate app looks like a steeplechase: countless applications promise more comfortable on the couch. But taking a closer look shows that the apps usually only with a manufacturer’s tvs and then only with certain models are compatible. Peel smart remote and acid universal remote have managed at least two all-rounders in the test field. Also important: The vast majority of remote control apps uses infrared signals to communicate with the TV.

Android and ios: the best remote apps

Look at test results

Wi-Fi is mandatory for a remote application

The Smartphone manufacturers use a corresponding channel but less and less in new models. The most remote apps are useless for most current smartphones. Smart tvs can be controlled remotely but also via WLAN and thus with any Smartphone and the appropriate app. COMPUTER screen says: A modern remote control app must conduct the TV via Wi-Fi instead of via infra red. Apps without Wi-Fi that’s why not even succeeded in the test field. Annoying: Many app descriptions is missing the reference to the used radio technology.

When smart, then right

The best app to TV is found, followed by pairing cell phone and TV. In the test that worked almost easily with all the apps. When you try, then switch the TV app, five of six apps in the test but failed. Only with video & TV sideview, the remote control could really stay in the drawer. The app by Sony also impressed with many useful tools. Only switches the program via tip on the desired film, lists video hits from the network and provides current Twitter messages about the current programme and ensures a significant comfort on the couch. Although shone LG TV plus with the best service, but too many features, such as a digital TV programme is missing for a test victory. Everyday tasks change volume or channel switching work with all tested apps. Added value compared to the good old remote control but only the provided test winner.

Conclusion

Only the Sony app provided practical benefits from the combination of remote control and Smartphone. The remaining test box it failed to improve the ease of use.
