Your iPhone or Android phone can control your LG Smart TV with the LG AV Remote app. This application is a universal Wi-Fi remote control launcher that allows you to control network-connectable devices released since 2012. If both a smartphone and an LG device are connected to the same router, you can use your phone as a traditional remote control after a simple connection process.

This application automatically searches all connectable devices in your home and self-selects functions when paired with the device.

To get more detailed information and the app itself,
visit "Apple iTunes" or  "Google Android Market
(Google Play Store)".
