The term interactive phone describes the use of an interactive remote device like a smart phone in place of a remote control for controlling the features and functionality of the Samsung Smart TV. Because the interactive engine in the mobile device’s Samsung Remote App understands only certain types of code, including XML, predefined XML-based code must be added to the TV application code.
Samsung Smart TV provides the following tutorials to illustrate the development of applications that respond to an interactive remote control:
- Creating an Application for Interactive Mobile Device
- Demonstrates how to use a interactive mobile device by developing an interactive application. Whereas the core application responds only to the TV remote control, the interactive application can be controlled using an interactive remote control such as a mobile device.
- Creating an Interactive Mobile Device Video Application
- Demonstrates how to use the interactive mobile device to control video playback on a Smart TV through a mobile device.
