LG Smart TV and widgets for it
Every year household and other appliances are becoming more and more functional, simple and convenient to use. This trend has also affected TVs with Smart TV function from the well-known company LG.
The main feature of this TV is that it runs on the webOS operating system. This platform has a fairly large number of different widgets that are initially included in the firmware of the LG TV. In addition, a huge number of third-party programs are being developed for it, which each user can independently install on their LG Smart TV and use them. We will talk about this today in our article.
Widgets for webOS
On LG TVs, widgets are some kind of graphic modules that take up little space and perform one or another function. In this case, the widget can display certain information, for example, today’s date, exchange rate, weather, TV program, or act as a shortcut and provide quick access to a particular application. These modules weigh quite a bit, so you don’t have to worry about the memory built into the TV.
All widgets for LG Smart TV are designed to expand the capabilities of your device, increase the number of its functions and adapt it about the person who uses it. Everything here will depend only on your preferences, requirements and habits. Accordingly, the programs available in LG TV initially may not be enough, which means that you will have to independently search and install widgets and other extensions on LG Smart TV.
Types of widgets
To begin with, it should be said that the webOS platform is very convenient for developers, as a result of which almost everyone can create their own application and put it on the network. What this widget will serve and how it will work depends only on the developer, but in general, all programs developed for WebOS can be divided into local and global.
Global applications include such well-known applications as Skype, YouTube, Twiter, IVI, etc. Local widgets are extensions that are less well known and are therefore used by fewer people. These apps are often free to download, although there are paid options as well. They are also intended for certain categories of people living in the same region or using the same language.
When a person is looking for a particular widget for Smart TV, he is not very interested in what kind of programs he refers to, global or local. The person is more interested in how to install this extension and its purpose. In this regard, all programs can also be divided into:
You can download and install absolutely any program for your LG Smart TV and always have all the information you need. Fortunately, the number of applications for webOS allows you to freely choose whatever you want.

She supplies her “smart” equipment with proprietary software, which, in addition to traditional TV broadcasting, allows you to watch IP-TV channels, movies and videos online, communicate on social networks and perform other leisure activities. Our review will be devoted to one of these software products. this is the LG Smart World service, thanks to which you can download and install alternative software in addition to the existing applications. Owners of LG Smart devices will be interested in learning in detail what it is, how it works, and what is useful in practice.
How to set up and activate the service
It’s just that the LG Smart World app won’t open. For its full operation, activation is required, which implies the presence of a valid account on the company’s online resource https://ru.LGappsTV.com.
In other words. access to the program is carried out by login and password after registration for the TV of the corresponding account.
Problems in the application and methods of their elimination
During operation, the LG Smart World application activated on Smart-TV for some reason may stop working stably. In this case, freezes may occur, various errors are displayed, applications, for example, YouTube, SS IPTV or any other, may not be installed. Most of the problems are related to the following points:
- malfunction or outdated software version;
- disconnection of the Internet connection;
- outdated version of the TV receiver’s firmware;
- overflowed device memory.
You can fix individual problems on your own. On the thematic forum of the site w3bsit3-dns.com users of “smart” technology share their own troubleshooting experience, and here you can look for a suitable solution.
Advice! If you cannot find a way out of the situation, we recommend contacting the technical support service of the official LG resource through the feedback form.
After creating a profile, you can already log into the program account on the TV receiver and use its capabilities to install and uninstall applications, order paid and free subscriptions. For his own convenience, the user can customize the start page and other windows in the service to suit his preferences. The profile is configured in the section of the client program “My page”.
Registration in your personal account
You can register an account either on the website (the link is given above), or directly from the application.
Advice! If the procedure is performed on the Smart-receiver, it is recommended to connect a smartphone, mouse or keyboard with a touchpad to control the cursor to the TV. This makes it more convenient to manipulate the actions on the screen than using the remote control.
The sequence of navigating through the main page of the application is as follows:
- first you need to open the authorization window. the “Login” button;
- then you should initiate the account registration process. the “Register” button;
- then you need to read the text of the user agreement and give consent, if something does not suit you, you can interrupt the process of creating an account. the buttons “Agree” / “Disagree”;
- after accepting the user agreement, the system offers to fill in the video form with information. you need to enter an E-mail, as well as a password invented from numbers and letters (register twice);
- the last step is to send the information for processing using the “Register” button.
After these manipulations, the system sends a letter with a greeting and an offer “Complete registration” to the specified postal address. Then, on a smartphone or computer, you need to open an email message, and, following the instructions, go to the site, where you will need to fill in the information in the fields of the created personal account. This is necessary in order to manage subscriptions through the application in the future, as well as purchase paid content.
The habit of adjusting the TV functions empirically, by pressing indiscriminately on the remote control buttons, can lead to a problematic situation with the Smart-TV settings. And this is one of the reasons why LG Smart World may not work. It is almost impossible to figure out where the accidental failure occurred, and to return everything as it was before. In this case, we recommend that you reset the system to factory settings in order to configure again.
Checking the Internet connection
The Internet connection can be “lost” for a trivial reason. the service was not paid on time, and the provider suspended its operation. If this is not possible, you need to make sure that there are no problems on the side of the service provider. maybe the line is being repaired or maintenance.
The next step is to make sure the router is working. Sometimes restarting the device will fix the problem. If not, then it is possible that the settings of the WI-FI access point have gone wrong on the router. In this situation, updating the firmware of the modem may be a solution to the problem.
Widgets and programs for webOS
