Unofficial Samsung Remote
This is an unofficial app to allow you to control any 2011-2013 model year Samsung smart devices over WiFi with your Windows device. As long as your phone is on the same network as your Samsung device, you can do anything a physical remote can do and more! Change channels, adjust the volume, navigate around the Smart Hub, and even fill out certain text fields with your phone's keyboard (note: only available where the device supports this feature; note that the built-in YouTube app, among others, doesn't support this even with the original remote). Use the same app to connect to as many Samsung devices as you have in your house and control them all! PLEASE NOTE: The trial version is identical to the full version with the exception of a single ad in the bottom of the list of TVs. If your TV/device/network does not work with the trial, it will not work with the full version. I do not have the ability to offer refunds! Here are the TV's that this should work with: * Model year 2011-2013 * LED 6500 series or higher (model code starts with 'U') * LCD 650 series or higher (model code starts with 'L') * PDP 6500 series or higher (model code starts with 'P') It should also work with certain other Samsung devices such as Blu-Ray players with smart functionality. When in doubt, look for an option like "network remote" on the device's menu. You may try toggling this off and back on if it doesn't work right away. NOTE: If the target device is currently in the "Smart Hub" and you've never connected the remote before, you may need to exit the hub first, approve the phone connection, and then launch back into the hub. Furthermore, this app cannot turn your device on - the device's wireless remote server is only running when it is powered on. These are both a limitation of Samsung devices, not the app. Additionally, Samsung completely changed how the network remote feature worked starting with the 2014 model year of devices, so this app will not control TVs or other devices from 2014 or newer. This app was not written by an employee of Samsung and is not an officially-licensed, -endorsed, or -approved Samsung product. All trademarks and copyrights are the property of their owners.More

YEP! It really works - better than my Samsung remote. Great, intuitive menu with fantastic GUI. You must try. No credit card up front!More
Please update app to work with H5500 series, which is also a new 2014 model Smart TV. Why exclude that Smart TV alone.. If it supports H5500, then this app is the best one of all TV Remote apps.More
Absolutely love this app! Makes it very simple to control my a/v hub without having to worry about line of sight (ir) or multiple remotes...bravo and thank you for a great app.More
Great design and idea... But its not working with two devices hereMore
Excellent app. However, I remember it had a touch mode to move the cursor around some while back.What happened, of course, is I found the feature missing when I need it. 5* almost, kudos to the dev.More
Wish the internet button worked. Other than that this app does what it says. * was free on WP7 now I have to pay? Don't think soMore
Works great with my Samsung SmartTV, I haven't tried it on my Samsung Blu-Ray player.More
Seems to work great, but needs tv to be on already before it will control itMore
All issues appear to be resolved! Works greatMore
Update 12/20 Now works perfectly! 5 Stars!!! I have a Samsung pn51e550, which I was hoping would work, but based on description, wasn't surprised it doesn't. I am ok paying the $1, but like others, hoping for an update. Pairs with tv no problem, just doesn't control it. Hoping dev is still actively working this app???More
