What's New in Version 1.5.2
Added the alert notification about the release of new universal version of Smart View.
New update, less functionality
Why is it that Samsung thinks that we're all engineers? We don't all want to go through multiple menus to get to what we want. The original version of this app was fine. Most common functions were accessible with the touch of a button. Now, they've driven us to their new UI, which is less than user friendly.
Unlike Apple's designs, Samsung lacks the intuitive. They've gone from adequate to abysmal.
The new version does not work, and the old one crashes. Why did Samsung upgrade to a newer version without testing? Now I cannot use any of them.
Before at least I could use the older one, had no problems. Samsung fix this issue ASAP.
used to work better
the older version was more consistent in its ability to do one thing better, switch inputs.
now i get some weird message about tvs not supported before 2011. and i cannot seem to switch to HDMI 4 consistently
the workaround i found is to first navigate to a different input like DLNA and then back to HDMI4 this seems to work
but overall this app could have been a lot better
