Question

Since two weeks or so, finally the WebOS store became available in the Netherlands. Unfortunately for me some very desired apps are still missing. 

 

These apps are:

 

- Soundcloud

- Spotify

- IMDB

 

Does anybody know if they are to be released in the Netherlands soon? Are they already available in other countries? In the web browser both Spotify and Soundcloud cannot be used because flash is not supported. Will there be flash support in the future?

 

Before WebOS I used a Western Digital Live TV media player, WebOS is such a relieve in comparison to the WD media player.

 

If these apps become available soon, WebOS is for sure the best smart-tv OS.

SmartShare as a viewer for TV Shows and Movies is a really bad experience. You cannot see them in a folder view. All your TV episodes are in one screen, having to scroll down for ages to get to an episode. I am not sure what LG developers were thinking when they were designing this UI. It should have a File Explorer view.

My old TV was a 2011 LG whith medialink (PLEX) it's a shame that in 2014s models like my 49LB87 you can´t use it.

 

But yes, it is possible to see the folders in your PMS in a 2014 TV. Don't use smartshare app directly, you got to go to "Device Connector" and then "PC" ... then smartshare connects to your computer, but now it's able to see the folders... (excuse me for my english!)

p.s. for those whishing for a plex app. Until it is there, I always open the browser on my tv and visit www.plex.tv. That works very well for me.

 

Other things on my whishlist besides Plex:

- flash support for browser

- di.fm app

- stumbleupon

- a microsoft OneDrive picture viewer app

 

And on top of my whishlist would be (besides plex):

 

- an app that streams the sound of whatever is playing on the tv to your smartphone via wifi. So I can plug in earphones on my smartphone and watch a show without disturbing my wife

Actually this is possible.

 

When you start SmartShare, you can click on the left on "All", after this you see circle icons in the upper right, with one of these you can change the view to "folderview", which will result in what you are looking for =).

Just want to let you guys know the Spotify app is available in the Netherlands (so probably in many other countries too). I find it pretty slow and why there is no option to cast songs from your smartphone?

 

My suggestion is buying Chromecast for easy casting of songs from Spotify and Soundcloud (Chromecast is only €35 in the Netherlands). There is still no casting option in both the official apps but with the My Cloud Player app and Spoticast app it is easy to finally cast music to your TV.

 

I hope many LG WebOS apps and also Android and iOS apps will support casting in the future. I use it a lot (Youtube in WebOS and Spotify and Soundcloud in Chromecast).

A decent video/photo gallery app that both looks better and works much better than the truly awful "smartshare". I would prefer a "Pictures hub" that aggregates pictures from whatever source you select. Then you can sort by tag, date, location whatever using a pivot menu or something like that.

 

The concept with smarthub is just awful, and the whole interface is really bad....
