Samsung Smart View Ported to All Android Devices!
Are you not one of the fortunate few rocking the new Samsung Galaxy S II? Does seeing the fun they have with Smart View make you feel a little left out? If so, XDA forum member Nokia7Vista has precisely what you need. He was able to unlock the app for use on all devices, rather than just on the SGS II.
This app is quite useful if you happen to have a Samsung Smart TV because in addition to allowing you to use your phone as a remote control, it also lets you send video streams to and from your phone! In the words of the developer:
This application is Wi-Fi remote control for Samsung Smart TV. If both your phone and TV are connected to the same wireless Router, your phone will link to the TV automatically where you can use your phone like a remote control. The TV can also transfer live feeds to your phone.
Enjoy TV and other multimedia right from your mobile device that’s connected to Samsung Smart TV. You can even send what you’re watching on your mobile device to TV and watch it from TV.
– Bluetooth PowerOn
You can use your mobile device to turn on your TV using Bluetooth (available for certain TV and mobile devices only).
Your mobile device can work as remote for your Samsung TV or BD products. Full remote screen is provided by default, and three tabs are provided at the bottom of the screen to help you control connected devices with ease. Onscreen keyboard shows up automatically when you need to enter text.
With this feature, your mobile device can control games on TV. Full and Simple modes are available. Turn on Gyro function on your mobile device, and control games by tilting your mobile device.
You can fine-tune control for TV and BD by adjusting gesture sensitivity in your mobile device.
