Software developers Kratfwerk 9 known for their iOS remote control for Samsung Smart TV have announced a release of an application designed to control TVs made by another South Korean electronics manufacturer - LG.

Kraftwerk 9 have already gained recognition for their Remotie application designed for the Samsung Smart TV. By early May 2015, the number of downloads of the software exceeded 1 million.

Software developers Kraftwerk 9 have released an application that allows for controlling the LG Smart TV with the Netcast OS using an iPhone or iPod touch. The product was named Smartify, and it does not only offer a standard set of buttons but sports a touchpad, a QWERTY keyboard and a channel list.

Smartify lets its users control their TVs in the same fashion as ordinary remotes do - switch channels, control the volume, change settings fast, launch apps on the TV. A large library of buttons is available.

"If the user can not find a button on the main screen, they are able to create their own remote by adding the button from the library. The application contains all the buttons available in TV models with the same type of operating system," Smartify developers say.

The application also has the Interaction tab, which turns the iPhone screen into a touchpad. Using simple gestures, the user can easily view pages in the browser, select content on the flash drive, play games on the TV.

The Interaction tab also provides a QWERTY keyboard that automatically appears in the application's interface after you activate the keyboard on the TV. However, text input is only available in the TV applications that support the LG standard software keyboard.

Another useful feature of Smartify is the Channels tab that allows for switching TV channels or creating a local list of selected channels easily.
