Samsung announces that they have created an App for iPhone/iPod. With this App you can turn your iPhone/iPod into a remote control for your Samsung TV, and use gestures.
iPhone controls your Samsung TV
Samsung has developed a new App for iPhone and iPod that lets you control your new Samsung TV. The App can also be used with iPad.
Naturally you can use the touch-sensitive screen on your iPhone, but you can also control the Samsung TV using gestures by moving the iPhone in the air.
The App also lets you transform the iPhone into a keyboard, making YouTube searches from the integrated internet feature on the new Samsung TVs much easier. There is even a Game mode that enables you to control the small games built into the Samsung TV.
The App requires Wi-Fi, and also requires you to connect your Samsung TV to the home network. Also, you need a 2010 model from Samsung. The 2010 models are labeled with a “C” in the model name. If you see a “B” it’s a 2009 model.
Samsung will be exhibiting all of their 2010 products at a huge press conference this Friday 16/4. FlatpanelsHD is on the spot and will tell you much more afterwards.
You can grab the App now from the US Apple Store, and expect it to show up in the local stores soon. The App is available here: TV Remote by Samsung
