  • Works perfectly when you learn how to use it May 18, 2020

    By Sydthkid18
    This app is great but it’s not self explanatory. The negative reviews are from users that likely did not get it to work to its full potential (the casting is not just limited to the web browser within the app, you can cast any sort of streaming app to the TV). I wanted to provide advice for how I was able to use it. To cast an app (ie HBO, Netflix, etc.): - connect phone to TV using the IP address instructions - exit this app and go to the app you want to watch a show on - launch video within that app - click on the casting symbol (usually in the top right corner when the video is launched) - click view Airplay devices, and select your TV from the list The video should launch on your TV, and you should be free to use your phone for other things. Hopefully this is helpful, don’t give up on the app too early! As long as you don’t mind an ad or two before your video connects, the free version works just fine.

    Works for streaming like I want. Just find the vid on you're phone and cast the link to you're tv. So you do need this app on you're tv as well (Makes sense right). There is a pop up about blocking ads from sights (if you want to see them of not) and to cast but it's not bad really (compared to many free apps). So I do recommend this app to anyone with an LG TV.

    It’s not particularly easy to start with the wall of text when you open the app, but once you get through that, set up is simple enough. And although it works I do have to re-try casting at least twice with each video to get it to initially start. Plus if the show has a commercial break I have to recast after each one. It’s just frustrating when you’re trying to do something around the house to keep having to come back and restart. But you get what you pay for. This does the job and in the end, that’s the most important thing....

  • Best app Mar 20, 2019

    By GailTirso
    I don’t know why this only has star rating of 3.3?! Y’all have to give this guys some excellent credit for connecting wirelessly. I love this app and I use it 24/7 cuz my kids love watching movie so it makes it super easy for me. And on top of that, I can play her movie and still watch my own movie or just simply using other apps. This app is certainly a life saver, and if I could rate this a 10 I would do so. Thank you for making an awesome app that does what it’s supposed to do.

  • Everything works - It’s “ok” for an app Dec 29, 2019

    By Aero-93
    All the features do work. Sometimes the instructions aren’t 100% clear but after some trial and error it’s easy to understand the app. It does feel pretty dated though and I feel that’s where its not quite as user friendly as it could be. Unfortunately it’s pretty much the only option out there on the App Store. Shame LG doesn’t make an up to date app with all the same abilities. LG does make an app but it’s also not very user friendly, a little dated and lacks some of the key capabilities this app has.

    Let's start with "free" is too expensive for this worthless, clunky, badly designed wannabe app. I pay for streaming services that you app will not allow me to play on the TV I purchased and try to use over the internet that I pay for. My choice now is to not watch on the TV in my living space, watch my streaming services on my laptop, or fork over more money than I want for a new TV. As near as I can tell, the only things I can watch with this app are the things I already have loaded on the TV. Chromecast works smoothly, easily, consistently, and without demanding that I pay just to use the app without an obstruction every time I open it.

    The number of annoying things about this app is too high to cover them all. You have to use the browser within the app to get to your video. If you have a long URL that you can’t copy (eg, in subscription sites) you have to retype into the app’s browser. It will not work with live streams. The popup that asks you to choose video quality makes the video stop playing, which prevents the app from connecting. Then another popup appears immediately (before you can get the video restarted) asking if it’s working, which again overrides video controls. The “Is it working” popup tells you to wait at least 30 sec before hitting retry; why not wait the 30 seconds before popping up?? If you chose the “free” version, ads will pop up that REQUIRE you to sign up with credit card for something before you can close them. I went for the premium version and the best I can say is that I got it to work once. Spend your money on a TV streaming device that allows you to mirror your small screen instead.

    What a disaster. I don't understand how anyone can create such a mess. LG "smart" TV never again!!! Take a look at Chrome cast and Nvidia shield TV. Maybe you will learn something. There are too many issues to list but the main issue is the poor integration with the TV. And casting is not working at all. Also it keeps asking to set the IP address. Again and again. I have had good luck with the LG phones. The cold solder issues on the LG TVs has cost me thousands of $. I'm done with LG

  • Worst excuse for a piece of software Nov 10, 2019

    By Prof5833
    I’d give less than one star, but..., not available. A 1,000th of a star would be TOO much. Every time I try this app before watching a program it jumps to selling stuf (actually another 4 letter word with the same first letter). It just recycles ad after ad after ad and never launches program. THEN - if it does “start to cast” the TV then infinitely buffers. Oh is it the TV ? Right - you work with LG to lock up the service, so it is expected that this is a tech integration that should would - no? I get it it’s free and they want to make money. However, the people behind this app should be embarrassed to tell anyone what they do. I bet you only hire the dumb bunny engineers. Or, you are - like - fake? How could one trust buying the paid version, when the trial just so completely lame!

    Despite having a dedicated app on both the output and input device its reliant on the IP address assigned, so if your device is dynamically assigned an IP (that's the default) then when IPs change it disconnects. On top of that, you can't actually control the video, meaning if you're disconnected, you HAVE to start the video over (no play,pause,rewind, etc). Whats worse is that this basic video browsing feature is locked behind a ridiculously pricy paywall. Move along, far better apps available

  • So glad I found this!!! Mar 23, 2019

    By zldapirate
    It’s so simple to use, NO ADS during the show (there may be only 1 or two before an episode starts) and great picture quality with a full screen option! And you can still use other apps on your phone while it still plays on screen! I’ll definitely be using this app as my sole screen mirroring app! 😁

    I found this app while trying to connect my Chromebook to my smart TV. I dug with the fact that I had to be on my phone on 1se pair the Wi-Fi to my phone it told me that IP address I had to input and it's been working perfectly with easy instruction.

    Controls are a bit unintuitive. Unable to log into patreon to play videos. Once you know what you're doing can be fairly straightforward to cast videos from your phone but takes a lot of trial and error to find the correct link

  • Almost Perfect App! Oct 26, 2017

    By Astronomy Buff
    This app does a five star job casting videos to your compatible smart TV. I am downgrading it to four stars because of two deficiencies. It requires you to manually enter your iPhone or iPad IP address every time you use a different device. It's a small but annoying deficiency. The TV app needs to be updated to remember several device IP's, and scan for the active device on launch. It also doesn't display stills from the device photo library, a major omission.

  • Works great with MotoGP Aug 15, 2018

    By davey987
    Only gripe I have is the directional pad on the remote changes the IP address fields both during video playback and setup for the LG TV WebOS app. This causes you to reconfigure after video playback. A minor annoyance. It would be great if the dpad would rewind and fast forward during playback. So this isn’t the correct forum to complain, but the LG App Store doesn’t allow reviews. And the app developer didn’t ask for reviews to improve the app.

    Videos will not start playing on my LG TV with this app. Even if I start the video first. I was trying to play YouTube. Update: I watched the tutorial and how to make videos start. Reloading the video to see the link to tap on worked. After doing that the videos that did not start we're able to start, on my LG TV.o

    It's good everything works and stuff. The reason I gave it 4 stars is you can't cast the subtitles in the vid which is kinda annoying. Still works pretty good though.

  • When it’s good... Jun 9, 2020

    By Mandiii23
    When it’s good, it’s good! But boy has it been troublesome lately. It starts, buffers, plays, rinse and repeat and a 22 minute episode becomes 30-40’minutes - not efficient. Also too it stops playing suddenly around the same mark no matter what for certain episodes. Not sure why channel apps in this day and age do not yet have tv cast [TBS does] capability —- sad and frustrating. Note to developers: make the ads pop up elsewhere on screen instead of on the video.

    Used to be amazing. The last week, funnily enough, since everyone has been asked to #stayhome, the app has stopped working. Now, when I hit the link to cast, it plays an add on my phone and then the episode but refused to cast anything to my LG TV. I have not adjusted anything. The app worked fine for over a year. I loved it! Really disappointed as I am coming to the end of a series I have been enjoying, using your app to view a show we can't get normally, in the UK on my TV rather 😒😏

  • It works, but on just. Oct 14, 2018

    By Dburke80888888
    I can't tell what's worst, the ads pop up on the iPad or the insanity of the TV app that fights you at every turn. When you select casting, it will throw up updates or pictures on how to do it. Just about anything other than what you wanted to do. Then asking you press OK. There isn't an OK on the remote. Brilliant. Then after dealing with the poor TV app, this app asks you every time, mind you, if the app worked. Really? Every time? Just not very well put together. But it does have more ads. Yea, more ads.

    Too many adds, so that I would rather use my Chromecast instead. Update: This app forces you to watch an ad (like 15 seconds long) every time you want to cast something to the tv. Might as well use my Chromecast instead: that toggle allows you to cast without that 15 second ad. Or, use the app "Web Video Caster" instead: they have more seamless experience, and ads are not taking up lot of my time. Update: on many levels, you guyes SUCK compared to Web Video Caster app.
