Samsung has introduced “Galaxy View Remote” for its new Galaxy View tablet. However, it’s not just for your View tablet, it’s for your smartphone to control your View tablet. The app must be installed on a Samsung smartphone with bluetooth connectivity in order to work. After opening the app, users will be prompted to pair their Galaxy View tablet over bluetooth. Once paired, your smartphone will act as a remote control for your Galaxy View tablet.
Samsung is obviously aiming for a PC-like experience here by letting users use their smartphone as a mouse to control their tablet, just like on a desktop. Users can use the trackpad to navigate with a simple swipe in each direction. Users also have access to the View tablet’s volume controls, back button, multitasking switcher and home button right on their Samsung smartphone. Arrow keys and an “ok” button are also included to make selections without the need to touch the View tablet’s display. And lastly, if you don’t enjoy the large keyboard experience on the Galaxy View, you can use the keyboard on your Samsung smartphone to type on the View tablet.
