For those with one of the newer Samsung Smart TV’s there no S3 compatible versions of the Samsung Remote or Samsung Smart View apps on Play, which I used a lot on my S1, and apparently we’ll have to wait until late summer for an update to get Allshare Cast working directly with these TV's. It’s a bit of a disappointment. I’m sure updates will arrive eventually, but it’s a shame the phone’s not feature complete at launch.

Yes, I wonder if it has something to do with the WiFi chipset or Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS)? I used to run the Samsung remote app on all of my phones, but I noticed my HTC EVO 4G LTE (basically the One X with MicroSD and kickstand) is not compatible with either of the newer Samsung apps.

I guess I will keep my OG Samsung Epic around for QWERTY remote duties.

I got smart view to work on my galaxy S3, but I used the titanium backup from my galaxy S2 :)
no idea what fixed it, haven't got it running on my gf's S3 yet...

Actually, I tore apart the Samsung remote apps to take a peek as I'm an Android Developer.

Anyone who does Android Dev will appreciate what I have to say next:.

The remote app consists of almost a 100 layouts all written using Absolute Layout, at best, the remote doesn't align on the screen buttons overlap etc, at worst, it crashes on startup from bitmap allocations exceeding the VM heap. Which is what happens on the S3..

Samsung got some really sh*t devs to write the remote and I've already emailed offering to rewrite it lol, but alas, the email, via the market url probably went direct to those devs.

I did get it working on my note by rewriting a few of the layouts but got bored after about 20.

I just dl`ed the samsung smart view .apk after googling a while to find it.

It is version 3.2.0 and it works 100% for my samsung bluray player BD-E8300. Both the smart view and the remote control. I just dont see why samsung wont release it officially via the app store.

There is a version on play store released recently, that's compatible with sgs3.
Including working dual view feature for high end tv and bluray.
Note 2 not supported still. If you force install, like restoring sgs3 titanium backup, dual view does not work, but remote does. This artificial prohibition started with 3.2.1. So 3.2.0 works for both sgs3 and sn2, while latest works fully only for sgs3.

SmartView 3.2.2
