This LG remote control app from Fast Fish Development used your smartphone's IR blaster to transmit the signal commands to your TV like a regular remote would. The majority of phones come with the IR blaster built in, but you should check with your manufacturer to be sure. If you download this app and find you are having problems, the creator of the app recommends you go to your app settings and change device type.
