This used to work but out of nowhere it no longer works! Smh
Doesn’t work anymore. 1/5
This app used to work fine. Now it won’t connect to my TV. The TV shows in the list of available sets, it just won’t connect.
No mirroring 1/5
Very sad, could have been a great companion app to the Samsung tv.
Has no mirroring!
Can only view your photos, videos, and music!
Good, but needs work 4/5
I downloaded this app so I could stream movies from a separate app on my iPhone 6s+, but unfortunately you couldn't exit the app and view a different app. If the developers of this app would add this feature to the app (not just for streaming movies, just in general) that would be great and I would give a 5 star all the way. The features presented in the app are really cool but definitely not a necessity when you have a smart remote. The most interesting thing about this app was the game console controller function. I believe this app could be more helpful and have more features with a little work.
Complete garbage. Even though my TV and phone are connected to the EXACT SAME NETWORK, it failed to connect over ten times. Zero stars..
Not worth the trouble 1/5
My TV recognizes my phone on the network. But the app itself does not show my TV. It shows three other TV names. Whi
So lame requires TV to be on WiFi. Even Brother printer app finds printer on wired network 1/5
So lame requires TV to be on same WiFi network. Even the Brother printer app finds my Brother color laser printer on my wired network. Isn’t rocket science to find a device on a wired network using the WiFi connection...Good reasons have my 1600W/7.2/4K/3.5TB(SSD!) home AV system on a wired network. First have very long random character passwords for security that are impossible to type in on a keyboard whether onscreen or Bluetooth. Second at higher volumes such as maximum comfortable listening level of -30dB don’t want WiFi audio drops which could hurt hearing...Not surprising app is lame. After all my 1st gen 2014 Samsung 4K TV only has one 4K HDMI input not even the ARC so can’t use my 4K AV receiver as the 4K source with ARC. So lame only one 4K input for a “4K” TV...Even brand new Samsung tablet doesn’t have mobile hotspot functionality which is useful for traveling since Microsoft defeatured Windows 10 mobile Hotspot with Fall Creators Update unless use Windows Defender and only default settings at that. Guess Samsung is not my only nominee for the Golden Poo award. So lame.
As advertised 5/5
Remote is toast. This works better than the remote. Faster.
Doesn’t even connect, same wifi and everything needs to be fixed ASAP
Why is the app name smartview_frame? 1/5
Shows their commitment to the app!
Worked intermittently then didn’t 1/5
It worked (but never well) for a few months. Then it just stopped being able to connect to my TV 6mos ago.
When it stays connected it’s amaze 2/5
Dog ate the remote, this was a lifesaver. However, it continues to disconnect and then won’t reconnect. It is rather frustrating and annoying.
Horrible App 1/5
This joke of an app rarely works. One day it connects most of the time it doesn’t. Refreshing it doesn’t do anything.
Works perfectly so far 5/5
Like some of the other comments I’m not sure what the issue is but the Apple works and functions perfectly and seamlessly sometimes it’s a little glitchy but in the end it does what it’s supposed to for both or mode and everything else
Drops connection constantly 1/5
By Chris lively
This update of the app saw its reliability drop. All I need is to control the volume, that’s it. However it constantly drops connection to either of the TVs.
I do not like this app. I downloaded it so I can use the keyboard feature, but it’s gone?? I’ve used it before, app updated, and now- no keyboard.
Connection Troubles 2/5
By Rosie and Bill
When the app decides to connect and work it is really good. But connection is quite spotty and frustrating. How about an update to fix the problem!
Would rate Zero Stars if I could 1/5
I have no idea what this app is for. I have a 2017/18 Samsung smart TV. It comes with preloaded apps and you can download Netflix, Amazon Prime to name a few.
But you don't need the app to do that. This app does not allow you to "mirror" or "share" what is on your mobile devise to the TV.
Samsung limits the apps you can use with their product, like Direct TV or Direct TVNOW. Useless.
Had to buy an Apple TV (fire stick) for close to $200.00 so that I could mirror to the TV.
Example: I wanted to watch live tv, networks NBC, ABC, CBS to name a few. You have to first download their Mobil apps from the App Store to your device (phone/tablet), then "mirror" it to the TV. Because the TV does not offer them.
Cannot be done if you are an Apple user... maybe it can if you own a Samsung tablet but that doesn't change the fact that the apps you need are still not on the TV.
Pay close attention to what's actually available on this app.
I get free Direct TV from AT&T but it cannot be downloaded to Samsung. I also have free Amazon TV because I use Amazon Prime, and Netflix came with that.
You're going to have to buy a streaming device weather it's a Roku, Amazon Fire, or Apple TV, etc...
Go ahead and try it.. I'm pretty sure all it does is gather all of your personal information, browsing history etc..and feeds,
Read SELLS it to others.
Waste of time.
No keyboard function 1/5
I have a 2017 4k Samsung tv and downloaded this remote so I could search within the apps and type in the search criteria instead of having to select letter by painstaking letter aaaannnndd...no keyboard function...seriously?
Will not connect. 1/5
I have tried every tip and trick. Cannot connect to my Samsung TV.
Not working 1/5
Can’t get it to work. My iPad can see the tv, but won’t connect. Tried 2 phones and 2 different iPads. Called tech support and they can’t figure it out either. Disappointing!!!
Hulu app not working 2/5
By Titu 76
When I try to navigate with the app in Hulu, you cannot select the show you want to watch. Double tapping doesn’t select a show
Bad and full of errors 1/5
It’s too bad for company like samsung for this. There is no official app for connecting to smart TVs
If you read about samsung you see, it’s following money not customer support
Won’t connect to tv 1/5
By Upset user628
It discovers my tv but gives me an error every time. Yes I’m on the same network on my phone and tv.
The app kept saying “No TVs found”, although my TV was connected to the same WIFI network as the app. Totally useless.
I could make it work! 2/5
I tried several times but I couldn’t.
Apple and Samsung in the same place. No bueno.
——— the problem was that I had to activate the “cellular data” option.
Won’t connect to new TV. 1/5
By Leicesterfan in Florida
Followed all instructions and it still won’t connect.
Needs improvement 3/5
Replicates your actual remote well however the biggest options it’s missing is a keyboard to type in with image trying to type in a password that’s mixed with lower, upper case letters and symbols becomes discouraging to use
Works ok!!! But... 2/5
Works but would be nice if was updated more often... It does its job, but needs to stay updated for future iOS’s... I’m about to get the new iPhone X does It display properly? We’ll see...
By Oregon Rocks
I was literally blown away by the awesomeness of this app. It was incredibly easy to use, and what I appreciated most was having my TV control on the iPad. No more difficult typing on the TV screen. I pasted in the URL for a web site on the iPad and bam! The web site was there. Complete TV control through my iPad. Totally awesome.
This app is complete garbage, doesn’t register that my tv is on when it is on and crashes on a constant basis. Don’t waste your time downloading!
No streaming apps 2/5
How can i stream to my tv using netflix as show in the picture? There is no option to do so
Don’t get this..it doesn’t work with Samsung
doesn’t work 1/5
This app doesn’t work.
The app never sees the tv on the network. Seriously Samsung?
Brilliant app 5/5
It’s now day 3 that I’m using the app and it’s hard to put down. I’m definitely in love with it. It’s responsive and the pointer feature for the internet browser is on point. Good job Samsung.
Does not work 1/5
Cannot find TV.
Not all functions work!! 3/5
This would be a great app if all the capabilities worked! For instance I thought it was cool you could play music from your phone on your TV but when I tried it, it did not have all of my music and would not even play. Other than this problem I really like the app please fix and it would be perfect.
Ugly and Buggy 1/5
Has an ugly name after installed, SmartView_Frame, with an UNDERSCORE. Seriously? Embarrassing. Trying to stream photos or videos from my phone works sometimes.
Always disconnects 1/5
It is very annoying that this apps disconnects almost every 3 mins. Piece of crap!!!!
Perfect trash 1/5
The first version looks like trash, but at least it works. This new version looks better, but it doesn’t work. The only thing that works on it is the power button and the volume keys. I still have to get up and change the channel. The purpose of having a remote, is so you don’t have to get up. With this piece of sh!+, it doesn’t change the cable box
Where is the qwerty keyboard 2/5
Now that they have removed the qwerty keyboard, this app is useless.
Fire Samsung app developers 2/5
The only good thing about this app is that I can control the TV with my iPhone 7. I downloaded this app so I can share my videos and pics on the television. It uploaded only 2 items. Which I didn’t even pick those 2 items. The app doesn’t let you choose what you want to upload. It uploads on its own. Which is nothing at all. I guess I could keep the app for the remote. Or I could delete it cuz this app is pretty much worthless for any iPhone using the new 11.0 software.
Needs improvement 2/5
I wish Samsung could develop a better app than third parties but sadly this is not true. The app constantly has issues connecting and reconnecting once the app is closed. When using other similar applications the TV is found much faster and reliably every time. Please improve the app, I prefer using my phone but this app makes it much more difficult than needed. 2017 Samsung 55" 4K set
I’ve used this app on an iPhone 6s and an iPhone 8 and used the iPad version with two different TVs and found it to be quite impressive. It has almost no delay at all when controlling the TVs functions, the control layout is well designed and it’s extremely easy to setup. Sure at times it would be nice if a keyboard popped up (which it only does for some apps) and the gaming remote is cute but totally unusable but overall I quite like the app.
Not possible to type in the web browser from the phone, which is basically the thing that takes most of the time doing in the TV. You had to do 1 thing right, the most important one and you failed
Horrible app 1/5
By Appliance trc
Connected to correct network but only connects once in a blue moon...
Waste of time 1/5
This app doesn’t work! Can’t even find my tv even though I’m standing right in front of it. No connection means it’s useless.
Works Fine 3/5
Easy to learn. Responsive. Like ability to set source to tablet and look through photos and videos and play music. Only problem was exiting e-Manual, tapping center of navigator control after selecting the EXIT button didn't work.
Won’t connect 1/5
Just doesn’t work
