What's New in Version 3.0.3

TV's made in 2011 no longer work with app. Thanks for abandoning your customers.
Well I can honestly say that every single tv in our home has been a Samsung brand,we have been very loyal customers for over 10 years. Unfortunately, this app (and other samsung apps) no longer supports any television which was made in 2011, even though we purchased the tv in 2012 and had it a little over a year and a half, it is not good enough for samsung. So, Samsung is going to be losing a very loyal customer to another brand since this is how it likes to treat its customers. Thank you samsung, it has been fun, but as it stands, we will no longer be purchasing anymore TV's, tabs or any electronic/appliances which have the Samsung brand name. I hope more customers follow.
As many other reviewers state, the update previous to the most recent one (today) broke 95% of the app's capabilities. All I can do now is turn on/off my TV, and change the input source. I feel rather lucky just being able to do this, as many reviewers cannot even connect to their TV's anymore. This is pretty ridiculous. Hopefully you don't intentionally/unintentionally update this app. Also, I find it hilarious that it was necessary for the developer(s) to submit an update to the App Store for a change in a license text file. I can only hope they bring back the app's core functionality; until then, it's a 1 star from me, for whatever that's worth.
Missing Some Key Features
I was using the old Smart View app for a while and lost certain features such as the ability to change inputs from the app. I have a 59 inch TV in my living room and had mixed opinions regarding the app, I barely use the app anymore and use my remote instead.
PROS: You can power off TV from app. The volume and channel buttons are very responsive.
CONS: Cant change input from the app (eliminates the convenience of having an app to control your tv). I can’t turn my TV on using the app (this may not be true for everybody, but I can only speak for myself).
