Galaxy Note 10 Deal: BOGO at Verizon!

    My Verizon S5 doesn't have the "Smart Remote" app on it? Is this normal? Where can I find it?

    It's not anywhere in the application manager menu.... not under all or turned-off lists.

    Any help appreciated!

    Try looking for WatchON.

    If not, just download WatchON either from the Play Store or Galaxy Apps. It's the same thing.

    Is there no separate icon in the apps menu for "Smart Remote" or is it only under WatchOn?

    This is what I found when I Googled it: (mine doesn't have that Smart Remote app icon at all)

    Well, I don't have an S5 but that one was there on my Note 4 when I got it. Before that, the Note 3 and the TabS had WatchON. I actually uninstalled the Smart Remote from the Note 4 and downloaded WatchON. It's so much better.

    I'm on Verizon and I have the smart remote on my S5. It's showing under apps.

    Finally got WatchOn to install on my tablet(Tab S 10.5). However, it has one major problem. I do not have wifi at home and WatchOn can't even be opened when there's no wifi network. The TV remote works from the drop-down notification bar, but settings cannot be changed when there is no wifi network.(for example, unable to change to a different TV to control)

    Still cannot find "Smart Remote" app on my phone. I stopped by the Verizon corporate store. The display S5 does have the "Smart Remote" app on it. The VZW rep couldn't find it on my S5 either.... she wanted to do a full reset, but I decided to do it at home... after I get everything backed up first.

    you can download the smart remote app that comes with the phone pre-installed from the play store, it should be one of the first few results

    Yup, those apps are readily available in Google's or Samsung's stores. No need to do a phone reset for that.
