LG TV Remote Control Plus PRO Features

There are two great extra features that come with the PRO version of LG TV Remote Control Plus. They are a trackpad, a keyboard and a possibility to launch apps straight from your iPhone. We will describe the features and their unique benefits below!

Trackpad

You know how hard and inconvenient it is to navigate your TV with a conventional TV remote, right? It just takes a lot of clicks and wiggling around with direction keys.

Imagine if you could navigate your TV the way you navigate your computer – with a cursor! That’s exactly what the LG TV remote app offers with the Trackpad feature. With it, you can easily and quickly get to the location you need on your TV, scroll, click and perform all of the functions of a typical trackpad or touchpad.

Keyboard

Another massive disadvantage of a traditional remote is typing. You know the deal – having to use navigation keys to basically run around the entire keyboard, trying to punch in single letters. Then going back because you made a typo… And then having to do that every time you want to look up anything!

The Keyboard feature on the LG TV Remote Control Plus solves that issue. How? It lets you use your iPhone or iPad keyboard to type in your search queries. Now looking up your favorite show on Netflix is as easy as texting your friend!

Launching TV Apps

With a traditional LG remote, you have to navigate through your TV interface and then toggle down to access the apps you want. Not the most annoying thing in the world, but it certainly can be improved.

That’s where MeisterApps’ LG TV remote app comes in! With it, you can easily launch your TV apps from your iPhone. All you have to do is click the panel in the bottom-right corner of your screen. The remote app will automatically include all of your installed LG TV apps.

Usually, a traditional remote would either include no app buttons, or between two and four non-programmable buttons leading to sponsored apps you may have no interest in using.

Only the most premium of remotes give you programmable buttons. The LG TV remote app, on the other hand lets you launch all of your apps from the level of your iPhone, without annoying TV navigation.

LG TV Remote Replacement

You might think that an app is not a feasible replacement for a traditional remote.

To that we say – it’s so much more than that! Not only does it have all of the functions of a normal LG remote. With the PRO functions – the keyboard and trackpad, it turns the two most annoying activities you can do on a Smart TV – navigating and typing – into a breezy thing!

Additionally, the TV Apps feature adds a functionality that’s simply unavailable or extremely limited on traditional remotes!

Advantages of the LG remote app

Works with any LG TV

The thing with remotes is that they usually work with several models and can’t really be replaced without doing some extensive compatibility research. LG kind of solved it with their Magic Remote.

Why ‘kind of’? Well, first of all Magic Remote is very expensive and prone to being unavailable from official LG partners. Second of all, any given Magic Remote is only compatible with a very narrow selection of LG TVs.

They’re usually ones released in the same year. Nothing like having to do extensive research just to make sure you can actually use your TV, right?

Meanwhile, MeisterApp’s LG TV Remote Control Plus app works with any LG TV made after 2012. That means you don’t have to worry about any compatibility issues. Just download the app, sit back, relax and make your life easier!

Remember how we said that Magic Remote was expensive? Well, that’s contrary to MeisterApp’s app, which you can use for free!

Remote in your pocket

Ever been in a situation where you wanted to cozy up on your couch to watch some TV? You grab your drink, get yourself a nice snack, cover yourself in a warm blanket… only to realize your remote is on the other side of the room!

With this LG TV remote app, this problem simply doesn’t exist! How so? It’s because most of the times, your iPhone sits in your pocket! That means it’s always there, whenever you need to use your LG TV.

Won’t get lost

You know what it’s like – all you want is to relax and watch some TV. But your remote is just not there! Whether it’s found it’s way down the crack of your sofa or to a random cupboard, finding it is an unnecessary inconvenience.

You can easily avoid this inconvenience by just having your remote on your iPhone! You know exactly where it is most of the times! And for those rare times where you don’t, you can just call it! And well, you can’t call a remote.

Easy to set up

You can set up the LG TV Remote Control Plus in one minute. It’s a very intuitive and easy process that requires you to do nothing more than click your iPhone screen a couple of times and insert a single pairing PIN code.

Convenient to use

The LG TV remote app has all of the functionalities of a traditional LG remote. What is more, it expands these features by adding Trackpad and Keyboard functions. To put it simply, navigating your LG TV is a breeze with the AirBeamTV remote app.
