Info 2 [Q] WatchOn APK, not working properly. Helpplease

Hello there!

I have a galaxy 3 and I downloaded WatchOn apk file. It installed successfully and everything else, BUT when I try to connect to my Epson projector. It does not work, help me please.

I know this is a issue with my device because my cousin has a galaxy 4 and it works great for him. He can turn on and off the projector easy.

Looking forward to your reply ^_^

From what I can tell, that phone does not come with an I Blaster which is part of the hardware/build of the phone.

You can't get one. it is either built in to your phone or not. it is an IR (infrared light emitter). A GS3 does not have one. they only started using them on the S4 and the Note 3. On the Note3 it is a small round black looking plastic plug on the top end of the phone just to the right of the speaker. There is a high power IR LED behind that emits beams that can work like a remote for device and they can also be used to exchange data between to similar devices.

That being said by, if you mean by Galaxy 3 as in an S3 then you cannot use this app. On the other hand if you mean a Note 3 then you can use this app and it should require no special settings. Just follow the setup instructions in the app and you are good.
