webOS apps for designers

Form, function, color, and style are the hallmarks of great design. If great designers like Jamie Drake or Candice Olsen lacked one of these components they would not have created the show-stopping designs we’ve come to admire. And with that, so many are people glued to their TVs addicted to HGTV, Fine Living and the DIY Network trying to figure out how to bring that inspiration to life in their own homes. And let’s face it, we didn’t win the lottery, nor do we have the Kardashian’s bankroll to acquire a designer of that caliber. So how does the average person find the tools to make their dreams come true within the budgets they have? With our trust TouchPad by our side, we set out to see what apps are out there to inspire your inner designer and bring your ideas to life.

      Discovery+, the company’s subscription streaming service, is filling in some holes in its distribution lineup through a new agreement with LG.
      The app is now available on LG smart TVs in the U.S. including the company’s lineup of OLED TVs and QNED MiniLED TVs dating back to 2018 models. Users can now access discovery+ on LG’s webOS platform by saying "discovery plus" into their LG Magic Remote.
      Discovery+, which sells for $4.99 per month or $6.99 per month with no ads, is also available on Android and iOS devices, Android TV, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung and Xbox.
      "We are thrilled to expand the availability of discovery+ and provide LG customers a direct and easy way to stream our much-loved brands, series and talent," said Gabriel Sauerhoff, senior vice president of digital distribution and commercial partnerships for Discovery, Inc., in a statement. "The announcement of discovery+ on LG Smart TVs builds upon our existing relationship with a valued partner, and we look forward to the continued growth of discovery+ and reaching more fans around the world."
      The launch on LG TVs comes just one day after Discovery announced that Discovery+ will be available in Canada beginning October 18. The service will be priced at Can$4.99 per month, with an ad-free version available for Can$6.99 per month, and each account will include up to five user profiles and four concurrent streams.
      Discovery Inc. is currently in the process of merging with WarnerMedia, which will be spun off from AT&T. In August, Discovery CEO David Zaslav said he was recently in Washington, D.C. and didn’t pick up on any potential headwinds for the deal that will bring together HBO Max and Discovery+ under one banner.
      “There’s broad support for this transaction. We haven’t heard any pushback, we haven’t seen any public pushback,” he said. “Right now, it feels for us on every level like we’re seeing green lights. We’re not seeing any yellow or red lights.”
      Discovery and AT&T expect the deal to close by mid-2022.

      I just bought a lg b7 oled and have a problem. I dont subscribe to cable so I wont ever be using it on this tv. Every time I start the tv it loads the OS and the cable-less static comes on the screen and BLASTS through the speakers. The tiles for netflix, hulu, etc are at the bottom so I choose one of those. How do I stop the tv from defaulting to turning on the "tv" that clearly doesnt exist? Ive tried deleting the tile for live tv, and even moving it to the far right side but still every time I turn n the tv - static with the menu on the bottom.

      I have LG 65C1,  Denon x4300h(arc monitor 1 was broken, but monitor 2 is working ),
      and what I would like to know is,
      can LG TV's autopower sync works?
      I mean I want to turn on TV using  the LG remote control,
      then my Denon x4300h could turn on automatically,
      when I turn off TV, then Denon turn off automatically.
      I tried many ways to test it, I open all the functions about hdmi control, hdmi cec, simplink, autopower sync...
      but it still doesn't work,
      how could I solve it?
      Or LG TV  just can't do it?
      Thanks a lot!

      2022 LG Models Deliver Superb Picture Quality,
      More Screen Sizes, Smart Lifestyle Services

      LAS VEGAS, Jan. 3, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) today unveiled its most advanced and impressive TV lineup yet, headlined by the company’s exceptional 2022 OLED TVs. With powerful imaging technologies and an improved webOS offering even more smart features and services, LG’s latest models are expected to elevate the viewing and user experience like never before.
      LG OLED
      The leader of the global premium TV market for nine years and counting and a CES Innovation Award honoree for eight consecutive years, LG OLED TV has reshaped the premium TV segment to become the first choice for millions of consumers worldwide.1 OLED TVs employ self-lighting pixels that can be turned on and off individually to deliver perfect blacks, incredibly natural colors and infinite contrast. Backlight-free, OLED is thinner and lighter than every other display technology, allowing for the creation of unprecedented form factors such as bendable and rollable TVs.
      Featuring LG’s advanced OLED panel, the new G2 series models are in a class of their own. The next level in OLED’s evolution, the OLED evo technology featured in both G2 and select C2 series delivers higher brightness for ultra-realistic images with amazing clarity and detail. Powered by LG’s new α (Alpha) 9 Gen 5 intelligent processor,2 the company’s Brightness BoosterTM technology enables G2 series TVs to deliver even more brightness through improved heat dissipation and a more advanced algorithm.3
      LG’s 2022 G2 series introduces a new 83-inch model and the world’s first 97-inch OLED model to complement the 55-, 65- and 77-inch TVs already in the lineup. The LG G2 series delivers a refined design with its attractive flush-to-the-wall Gallery Design. LG’s C2 series offers the most diverse selection of screen sizes with a total of six for 2022: world’s first 42-inch OLED TV, ideal for console and PC gaming, in addition to 48, 55, 65, 77, 83 inches. This OLED TV series features thinner bezels for a more immersive viewing experience in addition to giving the TV a sleeker design.
      Faster and Smarter
      At the heart of most of LG’s new TV models, the α 9 Gen 5 leverages deep learning to enhance upscaling performance and give onscreen images a more three-dimensional quality by making foreground and background elements more distinct from one another. The α9 Gen 5 also expands the capabilities of LG’s AI Sound Pro feature to provide viewers with more lifelike audio; enabling the TVs’ built-in speakers to produce virtual 7.1.2 surround sound.
      Upgraded UX
      The latest version of LG’s innovative Smart TV platform brings the user experience to life on LG’s new TVs, delivering maximum convenience and easier content discovery. webOS 22 introduces personal profiles so users can enjoy a more customized viewing experience. Under each profile, users can set up fast access to their favorite streaming services, get tailored content recommendations based on viewing history and receive real time alerts to keep up with favorite sports teams. Logging into profiles can be performed either from the TV browser or from a smartphone with NFC Magic Tap.
      NFC Magic Tap can also be used to mirror a mobile device screen to an LG TV.4 Viewers can also mirror content from one TV to another in the home using Room To Room Share, which enables the viewing of cable or satellite content on another TV via Wi-Fi without an additional set-top-box.5 Also new for 2022, Always Ready turns an LG TV into a media display when not in use. Easily set up in the SETTINGS menu, Always Ready is activated with a press of the power button on the LG Remote to transform the screen into a digital canvas for showcasing artwork, keeping track of time or playing music.6
      What’s more, upgrading ThinQ AI will allow LG’s 2022 TVs to become true smart home hubs. In addition to providing users with effortless voice control, and compatibility with other ThinQ-powered devices, ThinQ AI now offers support for Matter, a new industry standard for a more secure and seamlessly connected smart home, which will allow LG TVs to work as a controller for connected devices.7
      Outstanding Picture Quality
      Acknowledged by consumers, tech experts and the biggest names in the film industry, LG OLED TVs continue to raise the bar for picture quality. The panels found in the 2022 OLED lineups have been certified by global product testing agency Intertek for 100 percent color fidelity and 100 percent color volume. LG OLED TVs are unique in their ability to match the colors in the original source content and express all colors accurately regardless of how bright or dark the displayed images may be.8 All 2022 LG OLEDs are certified flicker-free by both TÜV Rheinland and Underwriters Laboratories, and glare-free by UL. LG’s OLED panels have also been recognized by TÜV Rheinland for their low blue light performance and are the first in the world that meet the low blue light emission requirement of Eyesafe, a U.S.-based health standards agency. And not only do LG TVs make it easier for creators to appreciate their accuracy, they also make it easier for customers to see movies as their creators intended as they were the first in 2021 to offer auto switching to Filmmaker Mode when enjoying Amazon Prime Video content.
      Unmatched in Gaming
      LG OLED has claimed many gaming first titles over the years: first OLED TV to support and first 8K OLED TV to demonstrate 8K gaming with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards. With its 1 millisecond response time, low input lag and up to four HDMI ports supporting multiple HDMI 2.1 features, it’s no surprise that LG OLED is the ideal choice for console and PC gaming fans. And with support for and Google Stadia cloud gaming platforms, gamers can start having fun by just connecting a compatible controller.
      New for 2022, LG customers can easily select and switch between game-specific features and display presets directly from the TV’s Game Optimizer menu. The Game Optimizer menu provides quick access to the new Dark Room Mode, which adjusts screen brightness for a better gaming experience when the lights are off. Settings for G-SYNC® Compatible, FreeSync Premium and variable refresh rate (VRR) are easily accessible from Game Optimizer. What’s more, a new sports mode joins presets for first-person shooter, role-playing and real-time strategy games, delivering more details for even more realism.
      LG QNED Mini LED
      Demonstrating its continuing leadership in the LCD TV space, LG is also unveiling an expanded QNED TV lineup for 2022. Boasting LG’s own Quantum Dot NanoCell technology, the fresh range offers stellar color reproduction with 100 percent color volume. Able to deliver rich, accurate colors in the brightest and darkest areas of a scene, LG QNED Mini LED TV is capable of amazing contrast thanks to LG’s Precision Dimming Technology. All models starting from the QNED90eries are certified for 100% color consistency so viewers see the same, high quality image every time, even at different viewing angles.9
      Interactive Experience
      In 2022, LG is also redefining the role of TV with the addition of new services that facilitate more personal and interactive experiences at home.
      LIVENow – The award-winning LIVENow app offers access to online live concerts, shows, sports and other premium live events that users can actively participate in as well as watch. With LIVENow, LG TV becomes a gateway to new virtual experiences, offering the ability to enjoy concerts with friends and family and with fans from all over the world.
      1M HomeDance – For those who want to dance like their favorite K-Pop idols, LG TV presents the 1M HomeDance app. Created in collaboration with 1MILLION Dance Studio, one of K-Pop’s most popular choreography teams, the app provides a wide selection of tutorials to help users perfect their moves. Users can check out their form with Camera Mode while dancing along with 1MILLION’s professional choreographers, or take a break, sit back, and watch their favorite dance clips.
      LG Fitness – LG is also introducing its very first health platform, LG Fitness, to help users enjoy a healthier lifestyle at home. Users can find the ideal workout plan based on the system’s recommendations or create their own by choosing from a variety of options such as fast-paced HIIT, full-body stretching or guided meditation, among others, keeping track of their activity and progress on the app’s dashboard.
      Independa – And with the arrival of Independa, LG’s TVs can even help users care for family members remotely or assist seniors to be more independent. As the first tele-healthcare service supported on LG TVs, Independa features an intuitive interface that makes it easy for users to initiate a video chat with a caregiver or easily access a menu of relevant professional services. Pop-up notifications inform when someone is calling and personal alerts can be set up for more reminders. All notifications and alerts are integrated into webOS so they are always just a glance away. Professional services available on Independa include Dentulu (online dental consultation), Capital Rx (discount pharmacy platform), Coverdell (dental insurance benefits), WebMD (medical grade educational videos) and Sprio100 (fitness programs for seniors), among others.10

      Ideal Companions for Today’s Home-centric Lifestyle Deliver
      Differentiated Designs and Features for a New Way of Watching TV

      SEOUL, Dec. 14, 2021 — At CES 2022, LG Electronics (LG) will unveil its original Lifestyle TV lineup, conceived and developed for today’s home-centric way of life. Offering maximum versatility, stylish spatial integration and more convenient ways to get things done, LG’s Lifestyle TVs can help transform a home into an office, gym, gallery, workshop or entertainment center, at the same time elevating the décor and making everyday living more enjoyable.
      Highlighting this groundbreaking lineup are LG Objet TV (model 65Art90) and LG StanbyME (model 27Art10), two innovations that eschew conventional display design to deliver new value and user experiences. With their unprecedented form factors and functionality, these distinctive products are the perfect solutions for today’s multifunctional homes where working, learning, entertaining and relaxing are all part of the daily mix.
      Resembling a canvas, LG Objet TV blends seamlessly into any room with its minimalist style and subtle use of neutral colors, bringing immediate sophistication and visual harmony to any indoor space. LG Objet TV adapts to users’ different needs with the mere press of a button on the included LG Remote by raising or lowering a fabric cover as the viewer sees fit. Lower the cover to reveal the full extent of the screen for the maximum viewing experience or partially cover the display to only see a curated selection of lifestyle functions.
      In Full View mode, LG Objet TV’s 65-inch OLED evo panel and advanced processor offer a stunning viewing experience making content of any genre come to life with vivid, accurate color expression and exceptional contrast. Along with superb picture quality, the premium TV boasts a 80W, 4.2-channel sound system that delivers movie theater-like audio to ensure complete viewer immersion. When set to Line View, the TV can help users stay on track throughout the week with Date & Clock, transform into a convenient audio player in Music setting or display a collection of exclusive space and nature-themed images when set to Gallery.1
      The interchangeable fabric cover, which sets the LG Objet TV apart from every other TV currently on the market, is a product of Danish textile innovator, Kvadrat. The three available colors – Kvadrat Beige, Kvadrat Redwood, Kvadrat Green – have all been carefully selected for their ability to match a wide color palette and blend in with a range of interior designs.
      Installation is as elegantly simple as the design of the Objet TV itself. Slender yet sturdy, the TV is designed to be positioned against a wall at a gentle angle of up to 5 degrees, like artwork in a modern gallery. The TV’s in-frame cable system makes it easy to connect external devices such as a set-top box or game console while maintaining its clean, contemporary lines. The TV can even be installed flush to the wall for maximum integration with one’s living space.2
      The other innovation in LG’s new Lifestyle TV lineup, LG StanbyME, is the ideal companion for today’s TV viewing habits. The one-of-a-kind entertainment center is a wireless private TV screen with a built-in battery attached to a moveable stand with concealed wheels for three hours of viewing pleasure between charges. LG StanbyME can be easily moved from room to room for the ultimate in viewing freedom, its 27-inch display the ideal size for not only movies, TV shows and streaming video but also for video conferencing with family and coworkers and viewing online lectures.
      LG StanbyME offers unrivalled convenience and viewing comfort with its ergonomic design. The screen can be swiveled, tilted and rotated while in both landscape and portrait orientations. The height can be adjusted allowing the viewer to customize the position according to the usage scenario, ensuring optimal comfort when lying in bed, cooking in the kitchen or lounging on the living room sofa. Streaming content to LG StanbyME is a breeze thanks to Mobile Screen Mirroring, which works seamlessly with the latest Android and iOS smartphones and NFC. A removable cradle lets the viewer place a phone on top of the TV to create a fast, secure solution for video calls, online classes and streaming content. Users can also connect their laptops or PCs to StanbyME via a wired (USB, HDMI) or wireless connection.
      Intuitive control options including remote, touch and gesture recognition deliver even more usability to LG StanbyME. The user interface designed specifically for this product is unlike any TV UI and is tailored to the viewer’s personal viewing habit. Like its Lifestyle TV sibling, LG StanbyME has an understated, modern design that complements a wide variety of décors. Featuring a rear cover clad in a textured fabric and finished in an exclusive Pure Beige color, the TV brings a warm and natural feeling to any space. When not being used as a TV, LG StanbyME can help set the mood by displaying beautiful artworks, photos or a calendar with clock.
      Be among the first to see these Lifestyle TVs from LG at CES 2022 by visiting on January 4 at 08:00 PST.
