Description

Control your Samsung Smart TV with gestures from your iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch.
Use the touchpad and keyboard to control the TV's web browser.
In contrast to other apps, myTifi supports the latest Samsung Smart TVs.

myTifi uses the revolutionary Smart Control; one screen to control all basic functions of your TV:
• Swipe gestures to change the volume and channel.
• Configurable buttons with the network logo; just press a logo and your TV goes to the matching channel (e.g. 28) directly! This even works with digital media boxes via the IR extender on the F-Series and H-Series TV.
• Directly switch to a source (like HDMI-1) with customizable buttons (like "PlayStation")
• Tap with 2 fingers to mute.
• Macros; record a series of commands to easily replay them later. E.g. the volume 10 levels down during commercial breaks.
• Auto-Mute; on an incoming or accepted phone call, the Mute command is send to suppress the audio. When the call is finished it is send again to restore the audio.
• Auto-Zap; let myTifi cycle through your favourite channels, to search for an interesting broadcast or populate your EPG quickly.
• iCloud; share your settings between all your devices.

The tab 'Navigate' can launch the TV web browser directly. Control the cursor with your finger with the touchpad.
Send text to your TV with the iOS keyboard, e.g. a web address.

myTifi supports all Samsung Smart TVs from model year 2010 up to the latest 2017 models:
• Samsung M-Series + QLED (2017) with MultiScreen
• Samsung K-Series (2016) with MultiScreen
• Samsung J-Series (2015) with MultiScreen
• Samsung H-Series (2014) with MultiScreen
• Samsung F-Series (2013) with AllShare
• Samsung E(S/H)-Series (2012) with AllShare
• Samsung D-Series TV (2011) with AllShare
• Samsung C-Series TV (2010) with Internet@TV

Try myTifi and you will be amazed. It's downloaded by over 6 million of users:

Geepee1952: "It just simply works. It finds the TV quickly every time and has been 100% reliable."

London Tony: "Easy and fast to set up. Channels sync perfectly between iPhone and iPad. Excellent developer support."

Dudeman0990: "Great app! Works much more quickly than factory remote and lets me use the keyboard on my smart tv so I dont have to scroll thru letters when navigating my tv. Thanks!"

NOTE
Do you use an external Set Top Box (STB) to watch digital television, such as Xfinity?
Then switching channels is not possible with myTifi, since you need to use the remote control of the STB. Unless you have a Samsung F-Series or H-Series TV, which comes with the free Samsung IR-extender, which can be configured to relay the control commands from your TV to your STB.
Changing channels is always possible when you use a direct cable input or a digital CI+ module in the TV.

Premium
During the first 25 connections to your TV you can evaluate all Premium features:
• myTifi on Apple Watch
• switch on TV (K-Series or higher)
• Smart Source
• Smart Control
• keyboard and touchpad
• no advertisement

After the evaluation period, the standard version will apply.
You can easily become a Premium user by a one-time purchase.

What's New

Version 8.2.1

• myTifi is prepared for the upcoming Samsung 2018 TVs. This is a beta feature, since these models are not yet for sale in our country.
When you have a new 2018 N-Series or QLED TV, we'd like to hear from you. Both if myTifi works or not.
• Improved support for special Samsung TVs, like "The Frame" or "Smart Hospitality" (that you might find in your hotel room).
• Added a toggle to the "Enter Pin" settings to send an optional DOWN command.
• The Notifications that we occasionally send about issues or updates, will now show appropriate information when tapped.
• Improved TV detection algorithm.
• Prevented a rare crash when myTifi was moved to the background.

Version 8.2.1 solves an issue where the progress indicator was not removed after connecting to certain Samsung 2014 or 2015 TVs.

Samsung tv remote and so much more....

A Cancer Man

This is by far one of the best apps I have come across for replacing my Samsung tv remote. The original remote that came with tv is very hard to use. Unlike most tv remotes... the channels are located toward the bottom, the layout takes some time getting used to, and you can not see it in the dark. With the MyTifi remote, this eliminates the hassle of these issues. I also love the feature of the mousepad when using the internet through tv. It makes it so much more easier to use. It even brings up a keyboard to type in for searching, which saves so much time. Way better than the one letter at a time, that is normally entered with a regular remote. And if you are an Apple Watch owner, it gets even better, as you can control every function from the wrist. The layout for Watch is very well laid out and simple to use. Love controlling the channels, volume, searching, etc from the watch. There are so many features and choices for this app that you can not go wrong with it. For the $2.99 I paid, you can not beat its price, function, and usefulness. Not to mention... you could not go buy a new remote for that price. I normally do not give reviews, but this is one app I would give 5+ stars.

My phone is always close by so this app makes it a near perfect way to replace the out of reach original remote.
Occasionally the app remote doesn't find my TV on the first try but I'm not sure if it's a network issue or TV issue as I've found all three of our Samsung smart TVs to be sub par. (Seriously if you are in the market for a smart TV avoid Samsung)
The app remote does everything the original does except turn the TV on. The biggest bonus of having this app on my phone is when my wife is fumbling thru trying to find something with the original remote and I can simply take over without saying "here... Give me the remote"
Great app. Thanks

Developer Response

Thank you for review.
myTifi can switch TVs on that support this feature. These are the K-Series (model year 2016) and higher.
We are working on a big update, that improves the use of multiple TVs and increases the connection stability. So please be patient, version 8 will be available in the next weeks...

Stopped Working

N184DA

After years of great reliable service, the app will no longer connect to my Samsung TV.

Nothing changed on my home network and I verified that the TV is connected. The app simply will not recognize the TV.

It’s a shame, since I loved this app and use it all the time.

Hopefully this will be resolved soon!!

Update:

Just as sudden as the inability to connect, it is now working as advertised.
Not sure how or why, but I’m not complaining. I have my remote app back!!

Update #2:

Stopped working again.
Just verified all is well with my WiFi network,, TV & iPhone connected,,
Unable to locate TV

:(

Update #3:

Figured it out, sort of.
Not an issue with the app (sorry MyTiFi)
My Samsung not-so-smart TV just drops the internet connection, for whatever reason. Shows: connected to the network, but not the internet.
Monkeyed around with the DNS settings,,
No change.

After resetting TV, seems to work,, again.
Not sure why but at least I know how to fix it in the future.

Anyway,
Back in business!!!!
