Smartify is an easy-to-use remote control unit with a keyboard, a touchpad and a list of channels for your LG smart TV. Just connect an iPhone and a TV to the same Wi-Fi network and you will be able to control the TV using a mobile device after a simple pairing routine.
Compatibility: the app supports all WebOS models of LG Smart TV as well as Netcast models of 2012 and later.

Ratings and Reviews
Installed and tested on the free version and it worked fine. Purchased the upgrade and it seemed as if I was stuck on the screen with the the least functionality (the screen with home button, fast forward, rewind, and the four colored buttons). I then realized that at the bottom of that screen (kinda looks dark grey) works like a mouse pad and I could see a cursor moving on my tv screen. Each time I swiped to get back to the other screens, keypad and volume controls it wouldn’t work because I was swiping in this pad area. So I swiped at the top of the page just above the function keys and it worked perfect. Once you figure out that little glitch the remote is awesome. Hope this helps out others.
Tremendous 3rd Party App
Having spent over $60 for physical replacements upon losing my LG remote twice, I was thrilled to find this tremendous app that, for $3.99, offers the same functionality, can be re downloaded at will, and leaves my girlfriend and I with on less remote to search for in the apartment. Application UI is responsive, network latency in my experience is sub-300ms between app and TV (though this will of course vary by user), and app updates are released regularly. Can't recommend highly enough for LG TV smart tv users.
LG remote app
This remote is very good, but still fails in key areas. If I use this app and close out of it, I can’t come back to my remote if I want to change the channel or or turn the volume up for example. I have to delete this app from my iPhone’s background process, and then go back into it in order to have functionality. It’s so annoying. LG recently updated the app and yet, it’s the same business. Also, the home button control button is on a separate page from the most used control like volume and so I have to go back and forth on different pages to get the buttons I want. Thanks also super annoying. The magic remote set the bar to high LG. Please fix this app.
