You can now watch and browse your VIERA TV with the new VIERA Remote App. It’s pretty cool because the app allows you to quickly and intuitively navigate all the tools and features on your VIERA TV. You can regulate your 3D settings, SD card access and VIERA Connect over Wi-Fi by simply activating the function within your Viera TV’s menu.

VIERA Connect is the new cloud-based Internet service from Panasonic. The service allows people to enjoy sports, health and fitness activities, interactive games, standard television and movies. The VIERA Remote App is especially useful when using VIERA Connect.

The remote app allows you to not only browse and start applications, but also input text when required. For instance, if you are searching for a video on YouTube or entering a message on Facebook, the app will automatically switch to an onscreen touch keyboard to type in text input.

There are a number of other screens available to control different functions, including an option to have either a traditional remote control layout, or a screen that uses gesture control to perform basic operations like changing the channel or adjusting the volume.

The remote app is available for free from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch or at iTunes.
